Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
The legendary DeLorean sports car makes one stylish, streamlined time machine in the Back to the Future trilogy, the '80s classics from director Robert Zemeckis Forrest Gump. The first of the series is the strongest, telling the story of young Marty McFly Michael J. Fox, a small-town teen in 1985 who takes an accidental trip back to 1955 in a time-traveling DeLorean built by eccentric, white-haired mad scientist Doc Christopher Lloyd. Through a series of comedic missteps, Marty inadvertently keeps his parents Lea Thompson and Crispin Glover from falling in love, thereby threatening his own existence. Quite simply, this is the best time-travel film ever made, and it revels in Marty's fish-out-of-water 1980s take on 1950s Eisenhower-era innocence. With their self-assured handling of clever plot twists and time-travel paradoxes, writers Zemeckis and Bob Gale earned an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay. And while the plot ticks with Swiss-watch precision, at the film's heart is an appointment with destiny, a single moment that sets the pattern for all the characters' lives, expressed eloquently in the film's central image of a tower clock stopped for 30 years by a bolt of lightning. Back to the Future Part II careens 30 years into the future where the DeLorean has been made to fly before Marty and Doc return to a nightmarish alternate 1985 with shades of It's a Wonderful Life that that can only be repaired by another trip back to the '50s. Labyrinthine time-travel complications are the name of the game in Part II, capped off by a brilliant reprise of the tour-de-force climactic sequence of the first film. Back to the Future Part III catapults Marty and Doc back in time to the Wild West of 1885, where fun and games with genre conventions -- cowboys, Indians, and gunfights -- and a little romance Mary Steenburgen is introduced as Doc's true love replace the plot complexities of the first two films. Fox and Lloyd anchor this series: Fox's boyish charm and energy is completely in sync with the film's buoyant spirit of fun, while Lloyd's archetypal portrayal of a mad-but-loveable scientist stands, along with his stint on Taxi, as the signature work of his career. And while only the original Back to the Future can be considered a true masterpiece, the sequels have a refreshing unpredictability that puts the trilogy as a whole -- along with the Star Wars and Indiana Jones trilogies -- at the pinnacle of post-Hollywood New Wave blockbuster fun.

    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.
