What is the best Back to the Future movie?

#1 Posted by Daveyo520 (7004 posts) -

Now that TellTale is thankfully making more games surrounding the series, and that the movies are on TV  right now, which of the 3 is your favorite? I would have to say mine is the 1st one, but I like the Western stuff in the third. I think the third could have been pretty good if they dropped the whole Doc falling in love with the teacher and the whole teacher character in general.

This isn't a discussion. It's the first. Really, Back to the Future shouldn't have been a trilogy at all. I admit there are some good things in both the 2nd and the 3rd movies, but not enough to justify their existence.

@ArbitraryWater: They did give us more time with Doc and Marty.

When I was a kid I loved 2 for the hover boards.   I hope we really have those by 2015.

The first one. I liked the second one a lot, but looking back on it, it's just really convoluted and not quite as cohesive. 
 
The third one's basically just a Western.

I can't decide if it's the first one or the second one honestly

The first one is one of the greatest movies ever made.
 
But seriously though, if we don't get those Nike Power Laces by 2015, I'll be pissed.

@MattyFTM: The 1st he goes to 1955, the next he goes to the future year of 2015/alternate 1985/ 1955, and the third he goes to 1885.

They got worse as they went on.

First one brings them to 1955.
Second one has hoverboards and takes place in 2015 AND 1955 AND 1985 with a crazy alternate timeline
Third one has horses.
 
Personally I like the third one the most. The first one will always have a place in my heart, but like I have said before, I am a sucker for western themed stuff.
 
 
I really just love them all.

I don't think I've seen the second one. Out of the two that I've seen, the third is probably my favourite.

I like the second one the best, because it had Marty having to go throughout time to rectify his tiny little mistake, an alternate timeline where his worst enemy is the ruler of his now-corrupt hometown, great throwbacks to staples of the original, and hoverboards.  But honestly, they're all terrific.

@Daveyo520:
I didn't know any of that. Although it was on tv yesterday. Um, the first and second were good, second was a bit better than the first to me. Most of the third wasn't great, but it still managed to end the series really well. I liked em'. It's hard to say one is better over the other though, because they all went straight into another as if it was all one movie.

this is tough, I love the first one, and the second one is the future which is cool, and then going to the wild west is also awesome.  I don't know, can I just say they are all one big movie and say all of them?
