A review of this — 5 years ago
Growing up I was fascinated by stories about the future, therefore the second movie was my favorite. When these films came out, I considered them revolutionary and refreshing. I think the main attraction was the bridging-the-generation-gap theme. Marty delved into his parents’ humanity. He also got a taste of their teen culture. How cool is that?
Now as an adult, I have a greater appreciation for the third movie, and for the trilogy as a whole. This is a very well written series, as the sequels were not originally planned. Tying all those loose ends together must have been quite a task. This is a Gen. X classic I’ll always enjoy.
