(It's possible that you might be able to get this title at a bargain during Black Friday or Cyber Monday 2015. I got a nice price on these dates in 2014.
Even at the prices Amazon normally sells this for, it's still a great deal.
What else can I say about Back to the Future? What would you do if you were in the past butt had a book of sports statistics from the present that you came from? Could you keep yourself honest, or would you take advantage of your inside information. That is just one element where time affected our heroes and villain.
I love time travel movies. This collection takes us not only to when his parents started dating, but it takes us into the future when he has kids, and finally, into the distant past when his ancestors live in the old west.
We have good guys, and we have bad guys, and we see people change their outlook from one point of time to another. A bully in the past becomes obsequious in the present when a past milquetoast learns to defend himself.
We see how past events can change the future. When Marty's parents become more confident about themselves in the past, their kids change from lounge-about lazy-bones to successful and confident professionals in a revised present.
This is a wonderful series, but you probably already knew that before you read my review.
I highly recommend this Blu-Ray set to you.
The video transfer is perfect and by that I mean It feels like watching film, not highly polished 21st century digital HD (which I also love). The movies are silly and very much a part of that terrific genre of childish sci-fi that worked some 20-30 years ago. The honesty of 1980s film quality makes the special effects feel legit (also childish when compared with Avatar).
Great addition to the library.
Content - Movies
The movies are rightly referred to as classics. I won't bother summarizing the plot since if you are reading this you already know it and if you don't - boy you are in for a treat! All 3 movies are great, my personal favorite is the first followed closely by the third. The writing / planning was so well done that they hold up as independent movies but it all does make more sense if watched in order. I had a great time introducing these to my 6 and 8 year old kids - and they loved them as much as I did / do. Warning - there is some rough language (mostly the "s" word) which I had not recalled from watching these years ago.
Content - Extras
The additional content for all 3 movies is super. There is a many-part series of well produced interviews with all surviving stars and producers / writers / makeup people, etc. Unlike the bonus materials provided with some other movies, these shows really give insight into the production and how problems were solved along the way. After watching the extras I really felt as though I had been there and had an insider's view. There are also sets of still pictures and "archival" materials which are prior "making of" type shows from years ago. It was interesting to see some of the same people in interviews separated by 2 decades describing things in almost identical words. The experiences of making these films obviously were indelibly burned into the memories of cast and crew alike - their recollections presented in the bonus materials were clearly oft-repeated stories told with fondness.
Picture Quality / Sound Quality
The transfers are clean and bright. The detail is almost too good, especially in scenes in the first movie where the young actors are in "old" makeup. The image is so razor-sharp that the outlines of the prosthetics used on their faces stand out. I am very pleased they did not choose to use a lot of DNR (digital noise reduction) as going that direction would have been far more distracting. Sound quality is also great.
Overall, I recommend this set without reservation and with much enthusiasm. I suspect these discs will be watched many, many times over the next few years in our home.
The geniuses in charge decided to store the last film's DVD partially over the "bonus tracks" DVD.
This coupled with apparently being moved around for years caused wear on the DVD film surface effectively erasing the last 20+ minutes of the final film.
Talk about a buzzkill...
Do yourself a favor and pass on this packaging piece of junk.
