Back to the Future (1985) 96%

Great Scott! This year marks the 30th anniversary of director Robert Zemeckis and writer Bob Gale’s beloved time travel franchise starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, and Amazon Prime has all three films available to stream. I hope we don’t need to tell you the plot here.

Available now on: Amazon Prime


Back to the Future Part II (1989) 66%

Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. BTTF II is notable for the absence of Crispin Glover (contract disputes) and original “Jennifer” Claudia Wells (family issues), but it’s a wacky romp back and forth between multiple timelines in 1985, 2015 (say whaaat?), and of course, 1955.

Available now on: Amazon Prime


Back to the Future Part III (1990) 80%

Nobody calls me chicken! Why does BTTF III work, even as a third installment in a potentially complicated time travel franchise? Because it minimizes the time travel element and has a lot of fun just being a solid sendup of westerns. Marathon all three movies and have a blast. Or just be a butthead.
