The Perfect Finale to a Wonderful Trilogy

Rating: 10/10

As a loyal fan of the Back to the Future phenomenon, I long awaited a
chance
to publish my take on the series. It may be a bit surprising to some that
I
would choose to write my comments in the section specific to the last
movie
which has been considered to be the worst film of the trilogy.

For many years, in consideration of this one trilogy which served to
inspire
and excite me as to possibilities of the motion picture industry, I would
look with a disappointment on BTTF Part Three, believing it to be an
unwelcome, unexciting film which ended the legacy.

However, recently it came upon me to purchase the trilogy on VHS and
re-experience it, as I had once did, though now from a more balanced
perspective. I watched the first two Back to the Future movies avoided
the
third in the fear of being once again disappointed. Utter disappointment
is
no longer the feeling I can use to describe my take of the
movie.

Back to the Future 3 is a well-written, well-directed, well-balanced
piece.
With an incredible musical score, brilliant acting and excellent
composition, the movie reminded me that Back to the Future was never about
action. It was truly about the characters we came to know and love in the
first movie. It was a return to the basics, the friendship between Marty
and Doc and how each was thrown through time to change not only the future
of Hill Valley, but also their own lives and their future
choices.

Robert Zemeckis' (the writer) decision to send the two friends back to
1885,
in their final adventure, was brilliant. Imagery like the "famous Hill
Valley courthouse under construction" and the "steam engine train wheeling
up to the rear of the futuristic Delorean" was unforgettable. For
example,
the dancing at the Courthouse welcoming festivities contrasted with the
action-laden scene (in BTTF2) between Griff and Marty at the same place
just
a century and a half later.

All in all, Back to the Future Part Three was a perfect ending to a
perfect
trilogy. To anyone who despises this film, I recommend another full
watching. There are so many details which are kudos out to fans of the
previous two movies. The movie successfully slowed the pace of the other
two movies (in preparation for conclusion) without losing the loyalty of
true fans. It captured the essence of what brought these fans to Back to
the Future in the first place.

If you haven't seen it, rent and enjoy 🙂 If you have seen it and wasn't
particularly pleased, I beg another viewing.

L8r!
