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.Read more ›
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".
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...

We enjoyed it, but it's not as good as the first one. My children are ages 12, 10, 8, and 7, and outside of the occasional swearing and his future mother's cleavage, it was still a... Read morePublished 1 day ago by Pristofer

My wife talked me into it; I enjoyed it. It's a 1980s movie. Michael J. Fox is a young actor. It's plot depends upon the concept of a "Time Machine". Read morePublished 2 days ago by Ranger100
Yes, honey, I love him- he is fine- he does a lot of nice things for me.
I know he used to do nice stuff for you, but what has he done for you late-ly?

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:

|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...
