Our summer retrospective on the Back to the Future franchise continues today with Back to the Future Part II starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd. No beating around the DeLorean here, we really go off topic a ton in today’s podcast. Matt and Mike talk about space, movie remakes, and the chaos of rioting in the streets on top of COVID-19.

Back to the Future Part II is a really fun film that takes place in the future, well technically the past now, and tries to explain some of the paradoxes and problems if time travel was possible. Altering history even a little bit can drastically change the world you have come to know and love. It is fun watching flying cars, flying skateboards, and the occasional flying punch. Did we mention Michael J. Fox plays multiple characters in this film, not just old and young Marty McFly? Back to the Future Part II is a really fun creative film but it relies on the original film a tad much. The alternate timeline was not a favorite of Matt’s especially how much time the movie spent in it. The guys are back to not agreeing on ratings, well this week. I know what you are thinking Mike is a harsh movie goer but guess what it’s Matt this week! Mike awards Back to the Future Part II 4.5 out of 5 Reels while Matt on the other hand only gives the time travel classic 4 out of 5 Reels.

Don’t forget if you have not seen any of the Back to the Future franchise films they are all available to stream on Netflix this instant. Next week the guys close out their look back at the time traveling trilogy with the franchises final film Back to the Future Part III. Thanks for checking our little review show.
