Writer Evan Dickson joins Amy this week to discuss the complete Back to the Future trilogy! They pose the entire selection of films for entry into The Canon, touching on the deceptively deep themes, director Robert Zemeckis’s pioneering camerawork, and the unique middle-classiness of the BttF universe. Later, we find out why Biff Tannen is the most vile movie bully in cinematic history before Amy and Evan make their cases for which entries are Canon-worthy. Which Back to the Future films, if any, belong in The Canon? Head to the Earwolf forums now to cast your vote!
