I just can’t get enough of the Doc yelling and shouting all the time (“I am going to put this in THE TRASH!”) Tom Wilson as Biff/Griff is simply amazing and Strickland using a shotgun was hilarious.

The score is mostly a rehash of part one, for better or for worse, but the main theme remains just as exciting as ever.

One thing that made me re-consider the entire plot of these films, though, is the concept of reality. Take part one. Poor Marty goes back to 1955, changes his future and returns to 1985. So, if Doc then sent rich Marty back to 1955 to avoid a paradox, what on earth would rich Marty get up to in 1955? He can’t possibly meet his parents etc. again, can he?
