Doc Brown stands at the bar with a shot of whiskey in his hand all night, and then promptly passes out after drinking it, after which, the bartender makes a special concoction called "wake up juice" to revive him. In Support Your Local Gunfighter (1971), Doc Schultz (Dub Taylor), who is already quite drunk, is similarly seen drinking a single shot of whiskey at the bar before immediately passing out, after which, the bartender concocts a special drink of the Doc's own design to revive him quickly. In this movie, Dub Taylor plays one of the three old-timers in the bar who heckles Marty and Doc Brown. See more »
As Marty travels to 1885, the Indian Tribe were only just a few feet away from him, but as he shifts into reverse they're further away. Because the DeLorean needs to go 88 MPH in order to travel through time, Marty would do what he was afraid to do: "Crash into the Indians" even if he were to slam on the brakes, he wouldn't stop in time.

As a loyal fan of the Back to the Future phenomenon, I long awaited a chance to publish my take on the series. It may be a bit surprising to some that I would choose to write my comments in the section specific to the last movie which has been considered to be the worst film of the trilogy.
For many years, in consideration of this one trilogy which served to inspire and excite me as to possibilities of the motion picture industry, I would look with a disappointment on BTTF Part Three, believing it to be an unwelcome, unexciting film which ended the legacy.
However, recently it came upon me to purchase the trilogy on VHS and re-experience it, as I had once did, though now from a more balanced perspective. I watched the first two Back to the Future movies avoided the third in the fear of being once again disappointed. Utter disappointment is no longer the feeling I can use to describe my take of the movie.
Back to the Future 3 is a well-written, well-directed, well-balanced piece. With an incredible musical score, brilliant acting and excellent composition, the movie reminded me that Back to the Future was never about action. It was truly about the characters we came to know and love in the first movie. It was a return to the basics, the friendship between Marty and Doc and how each was thrown through time to change not only the future of Hill Valley, but also their own lives and their future choices.
Robert Zemeckis' (the writer) decision to send the two friends back to 1885, in their final adventure, was brilliant. Imagery like the "famous Hill Valley courthouse under construction" and the "steam engine train wheeling up to the rear of the futuristic Delorean" was unforgettable. For example, the dancing at the Courthouse welcoming festivities contrasted with the action-laden scene (in BTTF2) between Griff and Marty at the same place just a century and a half later.
All in all, Back to the Future Part Three was a perfect ending to a perfect trilogy. To anyone who despises this film, I recommend another full watching. There are so many details which are kudos out to fans of the previous two movies. The movie successfully slowed the pace of the other two movies (in preparation for conclusion) without losing the loyalty of true fans. It captured the essence of what brought these fans to Back to the Future in the first place.
If you haven't seen it, rent and enjoy :) If you have seen it and wasn't particularly pleased, I beg another viewing.
