Back to the Future Part III (1990)

Enjoying a peaceable existence in 1885, Doctor Emmet Brown is about to be killed by Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen. Marty McFly travels back in time to save his friend. (IMDb)

The clever little recurring elements from the first film (clock tower, “Hey McFly!”, mom wake-up, etc.) and the continued fixing-the-future plot are extra enjoyable here as they’re repeated again in the different and fun Wild West setting. There’s some character growth too–Doc falls in love and Marty backs down (kind of)–and another great climax; only a lame crowd-pleasing ending that squashes the film’s previous discussion on the dangers of time travel taints this solid end to the trilogy.

7.5/10
