So, I finally saw these wonderful movies for the first time, not too long ago.  I'm probably the only 80's kid who didn't see Back to the Future growing up.  For me, it's one of the few consistently good film trilogies, even if it does have a few flaws, especially in Part III. 

So, feel free to share your thoughts on the trilogy as a whole, favorite scenes,or memories you have about them.

As for me, I think what made the first movie so strong was the comedy.  Most of that comes from the chemistry between Marty and Doc Brown, but I thought the funniest scenes were those extremely uncomfortable moments when Marty's mom starts falling for him. 

The comedy was still pretty strong in Part II, especially the scenes in the future.  Though, I thought the driving point of the movie was the sense of urgency that it created after Biff stole the Delorean.  Every moment of the third act when Marty and Doc go back to the 50's to take back the sports almanac had the perfect amount of tension, especially Marty chasing Biff with the hoverboard.

Then we get to Part III.  The first act was the best part for me, since it felt like there was a lot on the line with Marty having to go back in time to save Doc Brown.  I felt that one of the movie's major flaws is that it plays a lot of the western staples a little too straight, when there could've been a lot more deconstructive jokes.  There were still a lot of funny scenes, though.  I also thought the climax was a little underwhelming, since it mostly seemed like a rehash of the clocktower scene from the first film.  The trilogy still ended on a high note since it did bring closure for Marty. 
For me, it's hard to pick just one.

It's been years since I last wrote a journal, so let me start off by talking about a few things that have been going on in my life.  Last year, I finally graduated from Nova, with honors after passing a math class that was giving me a lot of trouble.  I've been going to George Mason for a year, where I'm working towards my Bachelor's degree in Spanish.    It's a new experience for me, but I'm managing, and even made the Dean's List for both semesters.

Now, I have more than two months to relax.  And on a completely unrelated note: Today, I started my first day at Great Harvest; a bakery near my house.
