All three Back to the Future movies have been reviewed. The video for the first movie [[1]] was uploaded on May 24, 2014, and got a final sin tally of 55, with a sentence of "Stuck in 1955 (Banging yo mama)". The second video was uploaded on Marty McFly Day [[2]], with two possible final tallies: 90 if the Chicago Cubs won the World Series (with a sentence of Cubs Win! (Hell froze over) and a clip of Harry Caray shouting "Cubs win! Cubs win!"), or 110 otherwise (Sentence: Future Biff Hell, and Doc saying "No, it's Hill Valley, although I can't imagine Hell being much worse.") The third video was uploaded on June 9, 2020, with a final sin tally of 200 and a sentence of Hanged (Buford: "We've got ourselves a new courthouse! I reckon it's about high time we had a hanging!").
