    And do you think they will ever make a #4?

    In order: 1,3,2. Although I like them all almost as much!

    I hope they don't make another one, what would be the point?

    I'm probably going to be the odd man out here, but I like part 2 the best. I just find the scenario fascinating...

    I think the original is by far the best (and most entertaining) of the series, and Part 2 is considerably more clever than Part 3. I've never understood the Back to the Future Part 2 bashing.

    My opinion is that 1 and 3 are both solid, fun, high spirited adventures while part 2 is a somewhat mean-spirit, albeit fascinating chapter in the trilogy.
    I don't dislike any of them, but part 2 doesn't spend enough time in one environment for one to get endeared to anyone, not even the main characters. Doc and Marty are scrambling around madly (understandably) for the whole film and never get a chance to develop their characters. I felt it was all plot and no character, but I had a lot of fun with it nonetheless.
    In my book, though, there's no beating the first one. [​IMG]

    I've never liked Part II.

    Part two? I thought there was Part one, an extended commercial for Part Three, and then Part Three. [​IMG]

    I'm with some of you guys...2 fits in beautifully despite some sinister scenery (i.e. alternate 1985). Still, I'd have to go 1,3,2...

    I don't know if I'd feel comfortable with a BTTF 4.

    1,3, and 2. I hope they don't make another. It's perfect as it is.

    in order: 1,2,3.
    same for the indy films. I feel that third films in both of these trilogies are too sappy.

    Yup,the original was the best. Part 3 had a rather weak plot. The first time I watched part 2( I was still a kid)... I found the plot rather convoluting. Then after a couple of viewings,I understood the movie and realised how it blended nicely into the trilogy. The fun part about watching this trilogy is noticing the familiar wacky humour and habits which the McFly family and their counterparts display throughout. For example, in all three movies, Biff always lend himself into a crate of manure and he groans,"Manure! I hate manure!" That always made me laugh as it seemed that Biff's family line somehow shared that unfortunate fate. That wicked kind of humour is also evident in Zemeckis's Forrest Gump where Gump(Hanks) tells us that Lieutenant Dan's(Sinise) great grandfather, grandfather and father is killed in action in every war that took place. This is shown through a quick sequence of Dan's ancestors(Sinise himself in different era soldier uniforms), falling on the ground,rifle in hand with an agonised,dead look on his face, in three seperate scenes.
    Zemeckis did a good job by piecing the whole trilogy effectively for the audience to enjoy. I shall await this DVD release with great anticipation.
    "Ahhhhhh! Marty! Marty! I thought I just sent you back to the future!"
    "You did, doc! But I'm back! I'm back from the future!!"
    "......Great Scott!!!"

    I have always been partial to 1. I'm a time/history buff and this movie played a big role when I was young.
