Product Description

Product Description

Experience one of the most popular movie series of all time like never before with the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy! Join Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and a time traveling DeLorean for the adventure of a lifetime as they travel to the past, present and future, setting off a time-shattering chain reaction that disrupts the space time continuum! From filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, these timeless films feature all-new 25th Anniversary restorations for enhanced picture and sound plus hours of exciting bonus features.

Amazon.ca

The bonus material included in the Back to the Future 25th-anniversary box is generous and varied, offering items that are exclusive to Blu-ray by way of Universal's interactive "U-Control" pop-up features, which viewers can access at any point while watching the trilogy. These features include "Setups & Payoffs," which explain the connections between various scenes throughout the three films (for example, in the opening credits of the first installment, the camera pans over a room filled with clocks, one of which has a miniature man dangling from its hands--a tableau revisited later); a trivia track; access to storyboards to watch while the finished scene is onscreen; and a bookmarking option. All make good use of at least some of the Blu-ray format's vast potential.

Elsewhere, the main attraction is likely to be Tales from the Future, a newly made, nearly three-hour documentary in six parts (three on the first disc, one on the second, and two on the third). Most of the principals from both behind the camera (director Robert Zemeckis, producer Bob Gale, exec producer Stephen Spielberg, etc.) and in front of it (actors Michael J. Fox--Parkinson's disease notwithstanding--Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, and others) are on hand to discuss the Back to the Future odyssey. There are some fascinating revelations throughout--not least the facts that Eric Stoltz, not Fox, was first cast in the Marty McFly role, only to be replaced after five weeks of filming (a few of Stoltz's scenes are shown here), and that the filmmakers rejected Crispin Glover's excessive demands for Back to the Future II, which led to his role as McFly's father being written out of the story. Other extras include "archival" making-of featurettes, which offer some of the same material as the newer documentary (and delivered by many of the same folks, only considerably younger), while a featurette on the second disc in which theoretical physicist Michio Kaku discusses the physics of time travel in the films is also quite entertaining.

Each disc also includes deleted scenes, audio commentary tracks with Gale and coproducer Neil Canton, a Q&A commentary track with Zemeckis and Gale, and a host of "behind-the-scenes" material explicating everything from makeup tests, outtakes, and storyboards to effects shots and the creation of the DeLorean "time machine." And that's not all: in addition to common ingredients like photo galleries and theatrical trailers, viewers wanting to go back to the past can dial up music videos by Huey Lewis and the News and ZZ Top from the first and third films, respectively. --Sam Graham

Format: Blu-ray
This blu-ray box set passed my criteria for "movies I am willing to buy again" for a number of reasons. The main reason was that the apsect ratio problems from the previous DVD box set have been corrected. That alone made this worth buying. The wealth of new bonus features, in addition to many old featurettes, was the second valid reason.

I watched all three movies plus a smattering of bonus features over the course of the holidays. People, let me tell you something. As crappy as the second movie is, it's much more enjoyable if you watch all three movies in one marathon session. Despite the recasting of Jennifer, the three movies meld together as one like very few other series. Connections not immediately obvious become apparent. Plus, you can't get from 1 to 3 without watching 2.

The 5.1 surround sound was excellent, and the 1080p picture simply great. What is also great is that a lot of the cheesier special effects (particularly makeup) were not ruined by 1080p. The illusions still hold.

As mentioned, the bonus features are ample. There are new featurettes and interviews to go with this 25th anniversary edition, as well as the older ones. There is also the previously seen footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly, enlightening as it is. One thing I haven't gotten around to yet is the "u control" feature.

I am really glad I got this set. I re-gifted my old DVDs to an uncle who doesn't care about aspect rations and was just plain glad to have these awesome movies.

5 stars.

Format: DVD
I read somebody else's review from December 2002 about how there were errors on discs 2 and 3, that they weren't really widescreen. I did a little more research and found this information on dvdtown's site:
The most controversial part of the video concerns the framing of the image for widescreen viewing. When Universal went back to the full-frame, open-matte negatives to do the DVDs, they made some changes, intentional or not, from the laser disc framing. Then they issued an official press release as follows: "Universal Studios Home Video is aware of a minor technical framing issue on the 'Back to the Future Trilogy' widescreen DVDs. The framing appears differently from the laserdisc releases for approximately two minutes during 'Back to the Future II' and four minutes during 'Back to the Future III.' The framing difference is unnoticeable to widescreen DVD viewers and does not detract from or interrupt the viewing experience. Consumers with further questions can call (888) 703-0010."
The studio is probably right in saying that the differences are unnoticeable (whether they meant "widescreen" or "full screen" or whatever), because unless a viewer has a photographic memory of the theatrical versions or has the laser discs on hand for direct comparison, there is little to notice. It's doubtful that anyone but the most meticulous "Back to the Future" partisan need worry about any possible framing problems.

How can you go wrong with Back to the Future. This is simply one of the best trilogy that exist. I know some people complain about the fake widescreen. I don't know if the problem was corrected or not, but even on a 16x9 screen, you won't notice it. English and French audio track for all three movies and MANY extras for you to learn even more about each of the three movies. A must buy.
