BTTF: one more thing

The sequels get a bad rap, but Part II is #4 on my list of "best sequels" behind The Godfather Part II, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and Aliens. The best sequels expand and re-imagine the world of the first movie, and don't just rehash it for quick cash, like, for example, National Treasure 2. Loved the 2015 scenes and the "alternate" 1985. You know, it's 2010 now, where is my flying car? And why doesn't my house greet me in a robot voice when I enter?

Unfortunately neither sequel made the imdb top 250, so we won't be rewatching them any time soon. Sorry, but I've got a whole stack of 3-hour historical epics that won't just watch themselves.
