Well it certainly spanned centuries that's for sure.

I know I'm a rarity but I'd actually rank part 2 as the lowest in the trilogy.

I love the trilogy. Part 3 is the one I love the less, but it's still great. It's filled with a great sense of suspense. Part two is probablty my favourite, but I really love part 1 as well.

3 is my least favorite, but until recently I used to dislike it. Not hate it, I was just reluctant to watch it again.

I'm torn between 1 and 2. 1 has the simple and genius premise, that innocence and playfulness, the comedy, it takes its time with the characters and as a result it's got perfect pacing.
2 is far more complex and darker and whereas the premise is not as ingenius (I find that their journey to 2015 was completely pointless other than to set up the 1955/1985 screw-up, there was no reason to get there in the 1st place), its execution was damn brilliant, especially since they decided to revisit 1955 and present facts of the 1st movie from literally different angles.

I just don't know which one to choose.

By all rights the film should work but it just doesn't. It doesn't help that I really feel like Clara should've gone off that cliff.

There are moments where I find it funny but everything else falls flat. Seems like the trilogy ran out of juice by the last film.

I see and I agree to a degree. Up until the last time I thought most parts of 3 fell flat, but turns out I really like how they approached the final chapter.

As for Clara, if they were to kill her off, they shouldn't have introduced her at all. I like the character and Steenburgen, so I was fine with her.

Besides, it kept the trend that each movie is not about Marty himself: 1 was about his dad, 2 about Biff and 3 about Doc. I love that.

Yeah I find part three to be incredibly charming, on certain days I like it better than part one.

I haven't watched the trilogy in a couple years so I may have to get out the Blu-Rays and watch them again.

It's basically all the western genre's cliches presented romantically, which is how Doc viewed that era anyway.

He was hilarious in Piranha 3D. As soon as he opens the door, he's already distressed and a dark and decadent version of Doc.

Of all the accurate predictions that film made, why couldn't that one be accurate!

I'm actually watching part three now, still to this day seeing Doc's hat get shot off always gets me in stitches

"Joey! Let's get this man some wake-up juice!" haha

I've also decided that Biff is indeed the most terrifying antagonistic in film history

Bad-1989 Biff, sure, he's very menacing.

Guys, I beat Sniper wolf. I didn't submit to ocelot.... until I saw what I would win by submitting in my next playthough. So I submitted the second time, because I want to be able to be invisible. And I've escaped Liquid and his helicopter.
