Doc Brown has decided to live in the Old West of the 1880's. But when he's in danger of meeting an untimely end, Marty travels back into the past to rescue him. There's just one problem: Doc is so smitten by a schoolteacher that he's become distracted. Now, it's up to Marty to keep Doc out of trouble, get the DeLorean running, and put the past, present and future on track so they can all get back to where and when they belong.

📆 So I watched this over Zoom with my colleagues Baba_Looey and NioNoire, my retired friend ManlyMachinist, and his serious slacker partners Jimmie Beam and Jack Daniels. Here are some of our comments.
◆◆◆
(*Movie quote*): "Marty, whatever you do, DON'T go to 2020!"
◆◆◆
"Spanning the years from 1985-1990, this trilogy had its share of good moments, and not-so-good moments too."
◆◆◆
"In spite of its flaws and faults, I found Back to the Future to be a fun and exciting romp (for the most part)."
◆◆◆
"If you are willing to cut this 80s trilogy some serious slack, I'm seriously certain you'll get some serious entertainment value out of watching Back to the Future (for the most part)."
◆◆◆
"I mean - Let's face it - Biff, Griff, and Mad Dog Tannen all fall in a pile of m*n*re at some point. Now how likely is that? It's like it was fated to happen!"

This is the third installment of the series released in 1990. After finding out that Doc Brown is trapped in 1885, Marty sets out to find the 1955 Doc to help him fix the DeLorean, which has been waiting for him in a mineshaft for 70 years. Doc restores it to working order. Learning that Doc gets shot in 1885 by Biff's Great-Grandfather, Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen, Marty travels back in time to save Doc, who has become a blacksmith. Inadvertently due to Marty's arrival in 1885, Doc falls in love with schoolteacher Clara Clayton, and considers staying in the past. Marty must convince Doc to come back with him and find a way to get back to his time before it's too late. After several dramatic action scenes involving using a speeding locomotive to push the Delorean to 88 miles per hour, Marty returns to 1985 without Doc Brown, who stayed behind with Clara, in 1885. When the Delorean appears in 1985 on the same train track as planned, a modern train destroys the Delorean, with Marty jumping out just in time. Marty reveals to Jennifer the time travel adventure and they visit the scene of the wreckage of the Delorean. He worries that Doc has been lost in the past forever, when suddenly Doc Brown appears in a new time machine, modeled after a locomotive. Now married, Doc introduces Marty to Clara and his two sons---Jules and Verne. Doc's last words of wisdom is that nobody knows their future, so they must make it a good one. The locomotive flies across the sky and disappears, ending the trilogy. As in the first and second episodes, you would love to see the villain fall in the manure.

There are some "corny" parts to this film, but overall it's still full of twists and turns and lessons learned (ok, so I stole that from MJF's bookcover). We travel back to the old west and lo and behold are entertained by none other than ZZ top hosting a hoedown for the townsfolk.

Most people I talked to loved the first two back to the future movies, but hated this one. Well, I think that this one was better than the other two!

Lots of action, good story, and a little twist at the end.

well worth the borrow. IMHO.

Jennifer Parker: Dr. Brown, I brought this note back from the future and - now it's erased.

Doc: Of course it's erased!

Jennifer Parker: But what does that mean?

Doc: It means your future hasn't been written yet. No one's has. Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one, both of you.

Marty McFly: [Marty wraps his arm around Jennifer] We will, Doc.

Marty McFly: Great Scott!

Doc: I know, this is heavy.
