Back to the Future Part II
Director: Robert Zemeckis
Cast: Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Thomas F. Wilson

The second part of the trilogy continues right where Back to the Future ended. Doc persuades Marty and Jennifer to travel to 2015 to prevent a mistake their child is about to make. However, this short trip to the future creates an alternate present day reality, and to fix it, Marty must go back to 1955 once more. The sequel understandably doesn't feel as fresh as the original, especially when it recreates some of its scenes, but the clever script just keeps adding inventive new twists to the story. The alternate reality is perhaps a bit too grim, but all in all the movie is very entertaining. The story concludes in Part III.
