5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Transfers I've Ever Seen To Blu Ray...And With Properly Great Extras Too..., 30 Dec 2010
This review is from: Back to the Future Trilogy [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
*** A REVIEW OF THE 2010 BLU RAY REISSUE OF THE "BACK TO THE FUTURE" TRILOGY ***

There's little prepares you for the quality of the print on this Blu Ray reissue - it's absolutely gobsmacking. I've seen great restorations before ("Goldfinger", "North By Northwest", "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", "The African Queen", "The Italian Job". "To Kill A Mockingbird" - see reviews for them all) - but this is exemplary.

The full run of extras is dealt with in detail in Amazon's thorough description above, but it's worth highlighting that among the superb new extras is Michael J Fox not afraid to show his present-day medical condition in the 6-part making-of that is spread across the whole set. There are contributions from almost all of the cast, Director Robert Zemeckis, Producer Steven Spielberg etc - and great on-set footage too. It's also been pitched at a reasonable price. In short, this is properly good value for money for 3 hugely entertaining films that don't seem to have dated at all.

I can only add to the chorus of approval for this - a fantastic presentation.

Onwards and upwards to the "Indiana Jones" Trilogy and the remaining Bond films (which were all Lowry Digital Restorations and look as awesome as this)...

I'm in the US, but my wife and her family are from Brazil, so I"m always looking for good blu-rays with Portuguese language options so that my inlaws can better enjoy my home theater and to help improve my children's Portuguese. If you have the UK version of the Back to the Future Trilogy, could you please confirm that the movies have Portuguese subtitles and/or audio? I already have the US version and there is no Portuguese, but I see it is listed on Amazon UK, but unfortunately Amazon's disc info is not known for being too reliable. Thanks!

If this was one of the best you'd seen I hope you've watched a few more since. The BTTF release was visually mediocre at best.

Hi Mark, I already own the 4 DVD disc version and only the first film has featurette. Does the BR version has it on every movies? As I read something about it that the BR version would have it. I read that the 25th Anniversary Trilogy would have it. Is this the 25th Anniversary Trilogy version?

Many thanks,
