I get the impression DJ has taken a trip down nostalgia road and watched it again!  It does indeed get better and better. Is it me or does Michael J Fox just look really cute when he brushes his hair back like that?

Sorry to swear but this film is just fucking perfect - I love it and have seen it too many times to mention. Remember seeing it in the cinema as a kid and leaving pissed off coz I had returned to reality!

one of the best trilogies ever!!!
i have all 3 on DVD and take pride on them!
how could anybody not want a DeLorean or to ride around on a skateboard holding onto the back of a car or play Johnny B Goode on the guitar like a maniac!
Michael J Fox is a god in this film(and bloody cute one)

I saw BTTF for the first time in about 12 years last night on Sky 1 - it is great!! As it was shown several times too often as a 'treat' in primary school - there was a stigma attached to thinking the BTTF films were cool, however, after last night I must admit I was entertained!! I forgot how at the end Marty's entire family had changed as a result of him giving his Dad so much confidence!! I also loved 'Marvin Berry' ringing Chuck up with his 'new sound'!! Classic!

I had to watch BTTF last night when I saw it advertised on sky one. Soooo glad I did...absolutely ages since I watched the film and I had forgotten so much. Life preserver....*snigger*

For me the casting of Michael J Fox and Crispin Glover are inspired.....although I do believe that Michael J Fox was third choice or something like that

Having brought the box set a few weeks back I decided to watch the first one again today.  The BTTF films are all time favourites for me and I could watch them a bizzillion time and still not be bored .

I'm hoping to get the second and third one in tomorrow.

Order of preference though has to got I, III then II.

You can watch all three of the films over and over again, and you dont tire of them. At least I dont! It shows people, including me, how you dont need to have elaborate action scenes to make a film, when you can do it with just a fantastic script.

Yeah, every time I watch BTTF I always notice something new or rediscover something. I haven't watched the other two in a while though: the first is just pure joy. The great concept was of course, meeting your teenage parents.

this is the order I see them in -
BTTF PT II - 5/5
PT I - 5/5
PT III - 5/5
pt II has and always will be my favorite of the trilogy, but I don't think I'll tire of any of them

I'm not sure how I've managed to not post in this thread before. I love all 3 of these films. One of the finest trilogies of all time, practically perfect in every way. In my younger days, I was never all that keen on part 2, but I've now seen the error of my ways. A great sequel to a great original, and followed by an equally great second sequel. Script, effects, score and performances are all spot-on.


I was a big wet lettuce as a child, and the people disappearing the Marty's photo always used to scare me. Did this happen to anyone else?

The reason I love and rate Back to the Future as my favourite film is that it epitomizes everything I love about film in general. It’s the sense of spectacle of it, the appreciation and the knowledge of knowing that millions of people have watched and love the film. Nothing is wasted, the dialogue is perfect for each character, each scene is spectacular and I still worry that Marty will disappear forever.

Ultimately, the film is fun; it’s fun to watch Marty get to terms with being in the ‘50’s, it’s fun watching him try to get is parents together. He’s a fish out of his pond, and we’re the same too. We’re in the same boat as him, and we share his sense of bewilderment, his sense of apprehension of what will happen to him, we’re with him on his adventure; in the audience minds it’s ‘our’ adventure we share his emotions on what he sees and does. There’s a certain amount of involvement in the film, which helps cement the films’ reputation of being well loved.

Anyway, I’m blabbering…

My favourite film always depends on my mood or what I want from the film, when I want to be entertained BTTF is the ultimate. I still think Marty's trainers, 'life preserver' and dream black truck are cool today. As for the gadgets in the opening, I remember seeing them as a kid listening to 'the power of love' and just knowing I was in for a treat. What a phenomenal ride of a movie.

Back To The Future Part II or III? Which do we prefer? I've been arguing with a friend of mine about this for ages. for me it has to be Part II, cos i love it when they go to the future and then when they go back and interact with the scenes from the first movie. i think this is genius and enough for us to ignore the flaws in the narrative and the pace of the film. PLus i just thought some of the stuff in the third one was lame and it just didn't really improve on the other two

(Has this already been asked in the thread?)

I prefer Part 3 over 2. It's just got more fun and the plot is less convoluted.

Back To The Future Part II or III? Which do we prefer?


I'd go with Part II, although both are very good. III I found a bit linear compared to Part II, and I also found the woman character and the Western guy played by Michael J Fox pretty weak characters. Having said that, the train scene is as good as any from the trilogy. Part II has it's flaws, it might be seen as trying to be too clever, but I found the way the plot twists around the first film really rewarding to watch.
