The vistaglide shots in the sequels have aged the worst for me. The second one would clearly have benefited from having Crispin Glover in it to help give more depth to the 1955 scenes, and perhaps whatever else would have been written for him to do. Still, having Biff kill off George in the alternate timeline was a needed twist to help hammer home the damage the sports almanac caused.

Thankfully there's an edition without a hoverboard or steelbooks or any other gimmicks, and it's only $42.99 on Target.com right now (guessing it may even be a misprice considering how it's priced on other sites)

The second film will be my perennial favourite. I truly think it's the greatest work of postmodern science fiction to ever be created within the Hollywood system.
It is endlessly rewatchable and rewarding.

One things has always bugged me about this trilogy, though. It takes place just 5 days before Halloween, and yet there are no decorations anywhere
or any sense that the town is prepping for it. Wouldn't you see SOMETHING in Marty's school hallways or in his neighborhood?
