The final installment of the Back to the Future trilogy finds Marty digging the trusty DeLorean out of a mineshaft and looking up Doc in the Wild West of 1885. But when their time machine breaks down, the travelers are stranded in a land of spurs. More problems arise when Doc falls for pretty schoolteacher Clara Clayton, and Marty tangles with Buford Tannen.
Everybody everywhere will say, "Clint Eastwood is the biggest yellow-belly in the west."
It's so odd to me that Back to the Future Part II and Part III were written together and then shot back to back. Part II is pure chaos compared to the first film to the point that the film contradicts it's own "time travel rules". You end up with quite a silly future, an alternate 1985 and going back to 1955 incorporating scenes from the first film. With all that going on it still ends up being quite memorable even though the story is severely flawed.
Then you get to Part III and it ends up basically being a lighthearted western comedy. It's almost…
Not even the magic of the first two films can provide enough fuel to keep the final instalment firing on all cylinders. Instead of the complicated time line run around we got in the second film, Zemeckis returns to basics with a much more straight forward romp in the Old West. Now it is Doc who takes centre stage and his story proves to be the problem.
Christopher Lloyd plays the role with as much manic energy as before, his affection for Clara genuinely quite touching in places because the warmth he gives to the role. That isn't the problem. Clara Clayton is. She is a thinly written feeble character, permanently bewitched by Doc who just slows things down and…
"It means your future hasn't been written yet. No one's has. Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one, both of you."
Great end for a fantastic trilogy!
With Back To The Future we had an amazing first film, a sequel could have been a problem. Is very difficult to make a sequel as good as the first film. That didn't happened with Back To The Future Part II, it continued to be amazing. Thinking about another sequel after two successful films is even more difficult and in my opinion Back To The Future Part III is indeed the weakest of all three but that doesn't mean that is bad because it was a very…
The marvellous Back To The Future trilogy comes to an end with the weakest of the three films.
The western setting is a fun one that perhaps isn't used in any particularly inventive ways. The fact that western history is already set in stone limits the invention seen in the previous two episodes but doesn't stop it from still being really enjoyable. The slower pace doesn't really suit this trilogy very much but Mary Steenburgen is a welcome addition to the series and doesn't derail the thing at all.
It does take a couple of liberties that even within the confines of this series irked me a little, such as why the Indians didn't seem to be too bothered about the DeLorean time machine they nearly plough into near the beginning. But that's nitpicking, really. It's been great revisiting these and it's easily one of the greatest movie trilogies of all time.
One of the earlier examples of a major blockbuster being filmed back to back was Back to the Future Part 2 and Part 3, both really rather different kinds of movies yet connected as part of a visible whole. In concluding the Back to the Future trilogy, Robert Zemeckis and co-writer Bob Gale endeavour to move the story into different territory while honouring everything that came before, and indeed charting a clear through-line connecting the original movie to the end. What becomes clear from the opening scene--a refresh of the climactic moment of Parts 1 and indeed 2--is how impressively constructed Zemeckis' trilogy has been from start to finish, despite juggling a myriad of plot threads and multiple timelines. It's…
Fuck everyone who hates this film it's a masterpiece.
Great movie, still really fresh to me because I watched this one less than the other two... I really can't imagine why! This one is still great.
Can everyone agree that the Back to the Future films are some of the most iconic films of all time?
Watched as part of a special 35mm 30th Anniversary triple bill with Part I & II.
Would now be derided as passe, quaint and sentimentalist. Zemeckis now flounders as a filmmaker because his true artistry is now the stuff of mockery. He should return to this short of smart and touching storytelling, mocked as he may be for it.
This film -- for which I can easily forgive occasional lapses of logic -- is so artfully constructed and warm and truthful that it deserves greater accolades than it receives. The reflection of history and future that comes to a head here, with Marty urging his ancestor to take good care of his great grandfather before returning to his home of 1985, is more focused on the pathos of why the narrative struggle is worth it: love,…
The conclusion to the Back To The Future Trillogy in a race against time to get back to 1985 one final time. Highly recommended.
Why's the third time always not a charm with movies?
A perfect end to the perfect trilogy
This film couldn't have done any better for wrapping up the epic, time traveling adventures of Marty and Doc. The old west was an interesting and thrilling place to go, in my opinion. Smart move, Zemeckis. Was adventurous, highly entertaining, hilarious, another great chapter in the trilogy. The train pushing the DeLorean up to 88 mph was perhaps one of the most badass ways to return to the future. It's one of my favorite scenes of all time and a little saddening that Zemeckis vowed to never make another BttF sequel as long as he remained alive. It was nice to shift the romance to Doc this time around, giving us the chance to see more of his human side. Once again, lots of fun, another well done sequel of the BttF trilogy.
sure, he's had some stinkers, but I'm so happy he makes movies
