[spits out a chunk of manure] I hate manure.” – Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen
Number of Times Seen – Too many to count (Theater in 1990, cable, video, DVD, 16 Jun 2013, 13 Nov 2014, 21 Oct 2015, 31 Oct 2017, 20 Feb 2020 and 2 Mar 2022)
Brief Synopsis – After finding out that Doc is trapped in 1885, Marty hatches a plan to travel back in time to rescue him.
My Take on it – I personally love the fact that this film was made because they had too many great ides for the sequel, yet didn’t know how to cut it down to just one movie.
This movie is also probably one of the first times where two films in a series were filmed together and them released separately.
The film focuses mostly on the characters being in the old west and they do such a great job showing how modern characters would live and react to life back then.
Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd are both superb here and help ensure that the characters of Marty and Doc will also be etched in iconic movie history.
The best part about this movie and the series itself is how they can keep things feeling so self contained in the story line while also still feeling unique and innovative in all that transpires.
Together, the trilogy tell such a great story that can be enjoyed all at once or separated into three chapters.
This helps keep things so enjoyable throughout and allows for things to stay so poignant since each film also references events and ideas from the other two films which show parallels in time of these characters and situations.
Great way to tie up the events of these characters as they travel thru time in a DeLorean.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Clint Eastwood was asked for permission about his name being used for Marty in the film. He consented and was said to be tickled by the homage. (From IMDB)
