    I love, love the 1955 part of BTTF II.

    On the other hand I don't like the 2015 part (well I like some of it but not overall).

    The way two timelines come together neatly and how Marty from original timeline has to avoid seeing his first future travelling version in the1955 timeline is brilliantly done. The ending is great too. In fact it's one of my favorite endings to any movie ever!

    Agreed that revisiting the first movie is maybe the best part of II.

    Fun fact, the opening of Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers was inspired by the revisiting of the first movie by seeing the same event from a different viewpoint.

    I love the 2015 and Biff's 1985 stuff and they were my favorite parts but now, I overall have to go with the revisit!

    Plus I also really enjoy the cliffhanger ending with the trailer for Part III attached. From the car/hover board chase to the credits is a damn thrill

    2 is great. Almost as good as the first. It's a great escalation of the story. If the first is about time travel, the second is about what happens when you **** with time travel and deal with the consequences. Great way to build stakes.

    In BTTF II, the courthouse mall logo is a lightning bolt striking a clock.

    Also, when Doc and Marty leave 2015, you can see Nov 12, 1955 is on the last time departed readout.

    No matter how many times I watch the famous Marty springing back to life as Earth Angel plays, it's always magical. It holds that special charm every single time.

    For real, he’s literally being erased from existence, and then at the last minute the kiss happens he jumps back up as the future is restored.

    Hate to be a stickler, but that is the wrong guitar. Marty plays an ES-345 with Bigsby tailpiece at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance. This appears to be some sort of 80s Fender Stratocaster copy. Marty does play a Strat-style guitar in 1985, but it is all black and has a different headstock... ;nd
