    This one was always my favorite, after the original of course, but that is only because ZZ Top makes a cameo.

    In the second movie they referenced the Main villain in the third movie when Biff was in the hot tub at the hotel

    Today is the day that Doc Brown set the DeLorean to at the end. Do you think he found what he wanted?

    I gotta say I loved BTF 3 when it came out and the repeat gags just added to the synchronicity of the time travel (Totally unlike the Austin Powers sequels which just recycled)

    BUUUUUTTT: on watching BTF3 for the God knows how many-eth time I thought:
    “broke gas tank? why not just harvest the one from the OTHER DeLorean they’re sending back to ’55?”

    Would’ve been much simpler but not as much fun….

    This one was the first one I saw in fact I’ve never seen the others so really I don’t see anything bad with it. Not to get all mean but I think movies should be rated as their own movie, even if it’s the third in line. Oh and I was wondering if you thought the same.

    I always thought it was unfair that this movie got crapped on so much. Sure, I never liked it as much as the first or second ones (Part II was my favorite of the three), but it was a decent sequel, and it wrapped up the story nicely. Now it’s only a matter of time before some movie studio runs out of ideas and reaches into the vault to re-make the first film, maybe even the second one as well (think of a re-make of Part II made in 2015, set in 1985, 1955, and 2015, and all of the pop culture jokes the 2015 studio could add – it’d be horrible).

    Another bit of Clint Eastwood in the movie: Marty goes by the name Clint Eastwood throughout it. When Doc saves Clara from going off the cliff, Marty explains why they named the bridge after her (because she was supposed to go off the cliff, so they name the bridge they’re building over said cliff after her), leaving the as-yet-unfinished bridge with no one to name it after. At the end of the movie when Marty gets back to 1985, they show the sign on the bridge – now named the Clint Eastwood Bridge. But I’m sure James caught that, it was pretty obviously shown in the film, but it was always a detail I caught and laughed at. Plus, the Twin Pines/Lone Pine Mall thing was blatantly pointed out in the first film and James made mention of that, so…yeah.

    hey James great video. i want to point out a missing point maybe(at least i haven’t heard anybody point it out). in back to the future III why didn’t the doc and martin used part from the time machine that the doc used to get 1885 himself? i mean there should be 2 time machines in 1885 rigtht? and unless the other time machine was empty.

  • J-P

    The reason for not to take the parts from the another 1888 time machine is that then it wouldn’t be able to get to 1888 in the first place. The DeLorean was build in 1985 and there is a chance that such parts that it’d needs don’t exist yet in 1955.

  • BADam

    September 21, 2010 at 9:59 am

    Nah J-P, all they’d need to do would’ve been to patch the gas line on Marty’s Delorean and the siphon the gas out of the one from the mine and they’d be set to go.

    • senna4ever

      February 29, 2012 at 5:36 am

      There was no gas in the burried DeLorean. You would not store a car for that long with gas still in the tank as the gas would damage the car.
      Even Doc mentions he had to fill it up with gas before sending Marty to 1885 from 1955.
      Another way to view it it…
      What if by uncovering the burried car in 1885 it becomes damaged somehow. Meaning Marty can not use it in 1955 to get to 1885.

    I watched the trilogy in order this weekend, and honestly, I have no complaints. Here it is, twenty years later, and these movies are still on my favorites list. That’s amazing.

    Clara did slow things up a lot, and I disliked her for that, but I really dislike her because she’s such a flat, obvious plot device AND

    crap. don’t know how that happened. was trying to say:

    Clara did slow things up a lot, and I disliked her for that, but I really dislike her because she’s such a flat, obvious plot device AND because she was such a pansy. Did they HAVE to do the damsel-in-distress-who-tries-to-help-but-nearly-gets-her-man-killed-in-the-process thing? grrrrrr. Plus, I kept expecting her hair to get caught in the train’s wheel when she was hanging upside-down. Really woulda killed the movie when her head popped off.

  • June 23, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    Most people I know won’t even watch this one because it’s so “different.” But I always looked at from this perspective: Part I was equally personal and technical. Part 2 focused more on the technical side, with the mechanics of time travel and such. Part 3 focused more on the personal side, with Doc finally finding love and Marty maturing out of the “chicken” phase. Part 3 effectively balances the trilogy. Without it, Parts I and 2 would just be an uneven pair of movies.

    When i was a kid I liked 2 better then 3 but now that i’m older i like 3 better then 2. It’s also kind of cool who the film made reference to A fist full of dollars and worked off of it. Which is a remake of one of my favorite samurai films Yojimbo.

    Was there 2 DeLoreans in 1955?
    Kind of. In fact there were 3 at any one time in 1955.
    There was the one from the original film (1).
    The one Doc and Marty return to 1955 in BttF II from the alt 1985 (2).
    Finally the one Biff used to go from 2015 to 1955 (3).
    How James looks at it is also right.
    There is the one from the original film (1).
    The one burried in the cave (2).
    However there are not 4 at any one time as some think as the one in the cave can not exist until the very second Doc is sent to 1885. By which time the one Biff used has been returned to 2015.

    In the drive in scene in Back to the Future III it showed that Marty wasn’t just a Clint Eastwood western buff but a Clint Eastwood junky knowing in fact those to old B movies had Eastwood in them.

  • July 12, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    I also remember seeing the kid at the end of the third movie when he puts his hand down and uses the gesture for “come here” and points at his dick. WTF!?

  • December 30, 2013 at 11:42 pm

    I can’t believe James didn’t mention the music, SO AWESOME

  • Curt90

    James – not 2 but 4 DeLoreans were in 1955. 1: DeLorean which Marty tries to go back to 1985 (1st movie) 2: DeLorean that Biff stole to become rich (2nd), DeLorean which Marty and Doc used to pretend Biff being rich (2nd) 4: DeLorean which is hidden in the cave since 1885 (3rd movie).

    The third is really not that bad. However the original will always remain a classic.

  • July 3, 2015 at 8:28 am

    Marty: “Be careful! You don’t want to get struck by lighting!” Barry Allen: “Yes, I do!”

  • October 21, 2015 at 2:44 pm

    The Clint Eastwood reference is spot on!

  • September 21, 2016 at 9:32 pm

    All three are classics. We’ll never get movies like them again. What I love about 2 and 3 is that they both took risks and didn’t feel like they were trying to just please and provide fan service. 2 had the guts to be darker and 3 had the guts to have a romance with two middle aged characters, and to be a western at a time when they were rare and weren’t popular anymore. Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd are one of the great movie duo’s. Endlessly rewatchable movies.
