I had forgotten almost everything about it so enjoyed it, even though lots of it is ridiculous. The two themes of the score are literally the same as the beginning of Luke and Leia’s theme in Star Wars 6 and the Back to the Future theme that opens the end credits in the first film. The electric guitar is out of place too.
