We wrap up our return to the Back to the Future trilogy with Robert Zemeckis’ finale from 1990: BACK TO THE FUTURE PART III. What do we think of the western direction they took? Does it hold up better than the second film? And why do all of their relatives look exactly the same? Tune in!

Back to the Future Part II

September 8, 2022

We continue our journey backward and forward in time with Marty McFly and Doc Brown, this time in the 1989 sequel BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II. How does it stand up as the middle film in a trilogy? Does it get too convoluted? How about the wackiness running rampant? And what’s this business with Marty reacting so strongly when called a ‘chicken’? Tune in for that and more!

At its heart, it’s a character story about people struggling to find their paths in life, and looking back on it 20 years later, it’s still an absolutely beautiful film. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we continue our Tom Hanks series with Robert Zemeckis’ Oscar-winning film, “Forrest Gump.”
