    Back to the Future Part III

    ★★★½

    turns out doc brown was actually training all his life to be a really good boyfriend and guess what that rules.

    also I’m building up a pretty bulletproof wall of evidence for my theory of “tom holland learned his american accent through studying tapes of eighties michael j fox”
