1/3rd of the best movie trilogy in history.
Verified purchase
This is easily my 5th iteration of purchasing this trilogy, between VHS (well, my parents bought that,), DVD, Trilogy Edition DVD, Special 25th Anniversary Edition DVD, Trilogy Blu-Ray, Special Ultra Mega 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray...and likely on until forever, and this is the most accessible version as it is now on all my FireTVs, my phone and my Roku, and my kids can't lose these disks. I do wish they had offered the entire trilogy at a discounted rate, as I had to purchase each separately, but it's a timeless classic that will thrill any age viewer, so 10/10 would recommend. Now if we can just get the 'Burbs on Amazon, I'll be a happy camper. :)

Great Nostalgic Family Movie
Verified purchase
My little one (7 yo) can be very sensitive about movies. We've tried to watch several 80s classics with her and most of them scare her. After a few failed attempts at watching our childhood films with her (the nail scene in Home Alone bothers her, the bugs in Honey I Shrunk the Kids, etc) we started pre-screenign the films. After some digging we realized the Back to the Future franchise might fit the bill.

She loved the entire series! Obviously parental guidance required. Like most movies of the era there is some language and some scenes that you aren't likely to see in a modern moved with this rating. We purchased all three films because we know we'll watch them again.

Great SCOTT!!

I love the whole series. I watched Back to the Future for the first time, I know, how could I. But it is SO well written, it is funny, suspenseful, got good twists and its just the right amount of corny. I was not sure whether I would like the third movie, cause generally I'm not a fan at all of anything that plays in Western time. But I can honestly say, I loved it even more than the other two. Seamlessly written to fit right after the second movie, and intriguing and interesting till the very end. Michael J Fox and the dude who plays Doc (sorry, don't know his name) delivered performances that were on point. And that Marty McFly almost learns nothing from these adventures until the very end, yet we are all so intrigued with his character, that is not only good writing but mostly great acting. Definitely recommend. I'm finally also fan of this franchise and I will be watching these movies again for sure.

Great setting for this movie
Verified purchase
If you like westerns, as I grew up liking, then the setting for this movie is great! Looks like the producers, writers, and directors recovered from the flop in Part II. Nice ending to this series. I think they needed better choices for the Marty's girlfriend's scripts in her short roles in all the series'.

I didn't think Back to the Future Part I could get any better, but I was wrong, Part III was just as good or better. They pulled out all the stops when they made this and it was mind blowing and a joy to watch. Kind of sad that it ended, although happily. Maybe one of these years, someone will come up with an idea to make Part IV. I would definitely be looking forward to that.

I love the first Back to the Future movies, but I have never liked the third one. I watched the first two in the last few months, and after seeing the second one, I wanted to see how the third one concluded the franchise. By the third one, the plot is no longer interesting, and neither is the wild west setting either. I wish they had come up with a better ending to such a great franchise.

Back to the Future Part III(1990)
Verified purchase
Back to the Future Part III(1990) picks up where the second film left off and completes the story arc. Marty McFly is stuck in 1955 after the DeLorean is struck by lightning. Marty and a younger version of Doc Brown restore the DeLorean after they find it in a cave. When Marty finds out that Doc Brown was killed in 1885, Marty travels to that time period to take Doc home. In 1885, Doc Brown falls in love with a lovely, educated schoolteacher, Clara Clayton(Mary Steenburgen). Marty, Doc Brown, and Clara are bullied by Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen(Thomas F. Wilson). Marty has to stop Buford Tannen from killing Doc and they have to return to 1985. Back to the Future Part III cuts back on technology and puts more of its focus on plot and character. There's an homage to Once Upon a Time in the West(1968) as the camera films Hill Valley, California in the year 1885. Back to the Future Part III was filmed in Jamestown, CA and I saw it on a field trip in grade school. The town was destroyed by fire. Alan Silvestri is back and he adds a "Western" flavor to the music score. A scene where Buford Tannen kills Marshall Strickland(James Tolkan) in cold blood was deleted from the film. ZZ Top makes a cameo in the film and they perform the theme song. Sexy Mary Steenburgen is quite good as Clara. She also played Clara Clayton on the Back to the Future animated series. Back to the Future Parts II and III were filmed back to back in 1989. Movies such as Missing in Action I and II and The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions used the same gimmick. Back to the Future Part III was a solid, final film in a fun movie franchise.

Best Time Travel Movie Ever
Verified purchase
I saw this when it first came out, then I saw it ten years ago, and now I'm still as impressed as the first time I saw it, amazed and exhilarated by how well the whole thing works together into one seamless stream of suspense and surprise!
