    Back to the Future Part II


    Watched on Blu-Ray

    As perfect as a sequel can be: more time travels, more awesome quotes, more terrific masks, more insanity. And it has a great Parallel-Universe-Donald-Trump-Origin-Story.

    From a technical point of view, this second part was absolutely groundbreaking at the time. As Marty jumps in scenes of the first part, is, from today's perspective, nothing exciting. At that time, almost your head exploded. HOW DID THEY DO THAT?

The music, the tension, the paranoia, Kurt Russel's beard: there is no chance that there will be a horror movie that perfect on so many levels ever again.

    This masterpiece belongs to my annual Shocktober like National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation belongs to the Christmas holidays.
