    Task #7: A film containing a big speech or monologue.

    About as good as part 1 and much more thoughtful, Uma Thurman gives an even better performance and David Carradine rocks it as the title character. The one flaw I have with this movie is the training flashback, I don't know what it was but I just didn't enjoy that scene

    Only the second time I've seen this and I can't believe it took me this long to rewatch. This is perfect, the start is exposition heavy but it sets up the rest of the plot so well that it doesn't come close to being a negative. I half-suspect that Zemeckis and co knew they were making an iconic and memorable film.
