On this release of the great BTTF movie, you get a 2 disc edition with extra features never released on DVD, nor even on the 4 disc region 4 release.

Obviously the movie is there, it was always good quality and great 5.1 sound on the rest of the editions, and nothing has changed for this one. Now included is a whole heap of new extras.

There is an Audio Commentary from Bob Gale and Niel Canton. It is an actual commentary now, not just the Q&A audio that played to the movie, or separately as audio depending on which edition you had, that other one is still on here, but this 2nd commentary is brand new, not a re-run.

As far as I can tell, all the extras from the other editions are still here. I own a heap of copies of different releases for this movie, and I get a little confused with what was on what; but I know the American fans will be pleased that extra deleted scenes that where only viewable on the region 4 bonus disc (4th disc) are now included in this release.
In particular, the full version of the scene when Doc is asked if he has a permit, and Marty wonders if he will go home gay. It's a great and funny scene.

Also included is the footage of the back to the future ride that used to be at Universal Studios. I went on that ride in 1993 (who cares), and it was great to see it again. It has two videos for the ride, the first one is the video you would watch while waiting in line for the ride... it's like a news cast and security camera video telling you about Doc's 1 day ride into the future (fictional) and the second video is what you actually saw when on the ride as you chase Biff Tannin through time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Movie July 26, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Back to the Future is one of those movies that you love to watch over and over again. You get so involved in the story, that (even if you aren't a sci-fi fan) you can't stop watching. Michael J. Fox is Marty McFly, a typical teenager who accidentally gets sent back to the year 1955 in Doc Brown's (Cristopher Loyd) time machine. There, he has to repair the damamge he has done by bringing his parents bac together and then of course get "Back to the Future. Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover, and Thomas F. Wilson are a wonderful supporting cast. Unfortunatey, this movie has been out of print for quite some time now. Amazon, PLEASE GET IT BACK! It hasn't even made it to DVD yet. If you ever get a chance to buy this movie then do it, it's worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming, funny and endlessly entertaining April 27, 2000
"Back to the future" was the most successful film of the year 1985, and it is not hard to imagine why. This gloriously entertaining movie is still director Robert Zemeckis' best film to date.
The story itself is hardly original, but how it is told is outstanding. Not only that this film is funny, it succeeds in creating a certain atmosphere that is hard to describe. An atmosphere that you can feel and which distinguishes good movies from classics. You really connect with all the characters on screen. Michael J. Fox was born to play this role and Christopher Lloyd is simply sensationel as Doc Brown. They both will always be remembered because of this film. But let's not forget the supporting cast. Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover and of course Thomas F. Wilson are all the perfect choice for their parts. The score by Alan Silvestri and the Songs by Huey Lewis also became classics.
Each time someone asks me which movies I find the most entertaining of all time, I mention titles like: "Raiders of the Lost ark", "The Empire Strikes Back", some early Marx Brothers movies, "Pulp Fiction", and for sure "Back to the Future".

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta get back in time! May 3, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Robert Zemeckis' excellent film starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd is one of my favourite movies of all time. Why? Well what's not to like? The time-travelling duo of Marty McFly (Fox) and Doctor Emmet Brown (Lloyd) is brilliant; Director Zemeckis (Who went on to direct two more BTTF films, Forrest Gump, What Lies Beneath and Castaway) and screenwriter Bob Gale pepper the film with sharp, witty lines (Marty McFly: Wait a minute, Doc. Ah... Are you telling me you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean? Doctor Emmet Brown: The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?)
Back to the Future has so many clever moments and a sense of fun throughout the film. Michael J. Fox is excellent, and Christopher Lloyd is in trademark crazy scientist mode. Add Alan Silverstris' memorable score, Spielberg's nice homage's- the theatre in 1955 when Marty goes back in time is showing a double bill: "A Boy's Life" (the working title for Spielberg, Steven's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial), and "Watch the Skies" (the working title for Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977). The film, when it was released got excellent reviews, and became the biggest box-office hit of 1985. The sequels are great too, but this is still the best, and the most inventive.
I'm counting down the days till the DVD is released...

I enjoyed viewing this film that I have not seen since 1986. The HD version, however, did not impress me. I could not distinguish any difference from a SD version of a film.

Are these remastered?
Those framing issues were fixed a while ago. About the remastering though, Bob Gale mentioned in April last year that the first movie (not sure about part 2 and 3) recieved a new digital high definition master for the upcoming blu ray release (which I'm hoping will be sometime this year), so... Read more

That's cheaper than the combined price of all these of the new individual releases.

However, the new DVDs do have a few new bonus materials:
