Movie Review #16: Back To The Future Part 2

A few weeks ago, Summer Movie Nights brought you the review for the classic 80s movie: Back To The Future. Today, I'm taking you, once again, to the future...and then back to the present where we will be zipped with Marty McFly back to the past to once more fix the future! Confused yet? Hold on, because things are getting heavy.

Back To The Future Part II
Release Year: 1989
Genre: Sci-Fi Comedy Adventure
My Rating: 4/5

The Premise:
---As found on IMDB written by John Wiggins

"With Marty McFly's parents back together and back in his own time of 1985. He thought that his ordeal of time traveling was over. What he does not know is that it was just the beginning, as Dr. Emmett L. Brown saysthat he has to come to the future with him. Marty and his girlfriend Jennifer come with Doc to the year 2015 where his future family is about to enter turmoil when Marty's son Marty Jr. is about to be in a robbery. Marty and Doc formulate a plan to prevent the robbery from taking place, as they succeed in their mission Marty buys a book called 'Grey's Sports Almanac' which is a futuristic sports statistics book. When Doc throws it away, former school bully Biff Tannen picks it up and discovers Doc's time machine. So he steals it. When he brings it back, Doc and Marty with Jennifer go back to 1985 and realize that things aren't right. Biff has altered time. He is rich and married to Marty's mother Lorainne. Doc and Marty then have to go back in time to 1955 to steal the almanac from Biff and set things right."

The Trailer:



2 Words:  Mind Blown. That's what I was during and after this movie. Turn after turn hit me like acorns being thrown by mangy squirrels. Right when I had it all figured out, WHAM! Bolt of lightning knocked into me a different century, sending me on multiple whirlwinds of adventure. All crazy metaphorical comparisons aside, this is the best sequel to any movie I've ever seen. Sure, some sequels hit the mark and others fall flat onto their movie posters...but this one goes beyond every sequel known to man. It takes the original movie to new heights and even takes the movie one step farther. Everything you saw in the first movie, is about to be layered with events that you never even knew took place.The end was so gripping and left me reaching like a mad person for Back To The Future Part III. I was so scared that I would be disappointed with a sequel to an already classic movie and Back To The Future Part II allowed me to breath a sigh of relief and exhilaration. I could go on and on about this movie, but then I'd be ruining it. Your favorite cast, a flying DeLorean and bad 80s cafes....what more could you want from the sequel to one of Spielberg's and Zemeckis' greatest accomplishments? A movie for all ages, for all times. It doesn't get much heavier than this!
