This film's vision of the future is a ten year-old's dream come true (hoverboards! Self-tying shoes!), hence why this installment was always my favorite as a kid. I recall "Part II" had severely diminished in my estimation the last time I revisited it, but no: this sequel is quite good, even if it swaps the patient storytelling and warmth of its predecessor to become a breakneck thrill ride from the opening scene.
While the concept of the movie is even better than the first, the rabid hyperactivity is off-putting. I'm probably the only person other than Eric Stoltz who would rather see a calm thoughtful movie with Stoltz and without Lloyd.
Really ups the ante and the stakes on the Oedipus jokes - troublingly and bizarrely. It's a film with a very freaky vibe to it. This is only too appropriate for a film about when time travel goes wrong and effectively allegorises the worst excesses of the 80s (a la 'Poltergeist 2') but I found it mighty disturbing as a child and not in a fun, ghoulish way! Would make provocative pairing with 'Twin Peaks: The Return'.
A sequel that expands the universe with a more complex story and actually thinks about the consequences with time travel. It fits nicely with the original and continues directly where the original left off but loses half a point by the fact that it can't stand on it's own feet.
May'18 Re-Watch - Ugh. The curse of the money grubbing sequel evident as far back. Quite inferior to part 1 mostly riding on obvious extensions of previously drawn ideas and loads of fan service. Quite disappointing.
Es 2015, hoy es el futuro, y aunque luce algo diferente como Robert Zemeckis lo habia previsto, esta es una gran pelicula, no a mi parecer tan buena como la anterior pero aun asi un clasico de la pantalla.
A little too dark, but I love all the scenes in the future. Not a huge fan of the alternate perspectives of scenes from the first film. It's an interesting idea but feels too much like a retread that pads out the run time.
