    Gift

    I bought this as a Christmas gift because I loved the movies when they came out. Nice to get all in one package.

    back to the future is great the box set is wonderful! i have the fullframe box set i like fullframe movies cause widescreen you can't see the picture that well but the full standerd frame is the best and my favorite one is the first Back To The Future from 1985 it makes time travel seem possible

    Wonderful set, imperfect extras

    First off, for the movies alone this is such a great deal. Even noobs who didn't grow up o these will be amused, enthralled and entertained by the antics, clever plot twists, and general kitschiness the movies hold as a whole. Unlike the LOTR or Star Wars trilogies, these movies do not necessarily form a cohesive whole, instead revovling around variations on the common theme of time travel &quot the same way the Rocky films dealt with boxing, or Indy Jones with 'archaeology'&quot . In particular, the third movie is the most gung-ho, the second one the most clever, and the first the most heartfelt. In all, Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd bring strong, timeless performances. Now, extras are bountiful and enjoyable, but not fully satisfying. One of the more novel and intriguing ones are the storyboard to movie comparison we see the frames of storyboard used as a guide, and how the action in the frame plays out in reel life. They also took a novel approach to the audio commentary it's not a real time commentary but instead audio recording of a live audience lecture/ interview regarding the making of the first film. They added an invasive MTV style animation sequence, wherein we get text indicating interesting facts and trivia on what's happening onscreen. The commentary and animation can even be run together. Also included are the actual making-of featurettes made when these films were first released, whcih are such a great blast to the past. Now, as great as they are, you get the feeling that these features could have been done just that much better. For one, storyboards split the screen with actual scenes unsatisfyingly, an option to cut between the two would have been enjoyable. Given DVDs are also often used o nthe DVD PC- only extras like actual production notes and copies of the storyboard would have been great. Another, as great as the lecture was, an actual audio commentary as the film tracks would have been way better. And why couldn't we get Fox, Lloyd or Spielberg in-studio for it? I also felt cheated in that more extensive making-of documentaries were not made for the movies now, and since the recent Hollywood fire looks like we lost an opportunity there. Given that all the wonderful fx was done pre-CG &quot yes, the flying Delorean was miniatures, matting and actual hovercraft tech. Real stuff!&quot , it really deserved more attention. The other film trilogies I'm recommending below got their extras done way better. So yeah, a fun watch, but could have been more. Buy it for your children's sake, but clamor for more.
