Imagine we had a Delorean in 1985 and went to the future in 2013 only to see how amazing blu-ray discs are. I remember constantly watching these movies on vhs, who would have thought that technology would progress this far. Definately a must of your like me and you love great classic movies!

  One of the best trilogies in Cinema EVER

| | See all gaulamos's reviews (19)

All movies are fun to watch in this iconic trilogy passed in many different years. All different years are very well portrait and have many gags and cultural references. Great performances from Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, in this 80's comedy movies.

Initially there's was only supposed to be one movie but the other two are very well blended with the original one and make an awesome trilogy of movies packed with great action and many fun.

This is without a shadow of a doubt a must have trilogy, fun for all the family and all ages. Have fun traveling in time!

  GREAT FILMS BUT NOT THE DIGIPACK

| | See all EliteStockz's reviews (1)

still a good set of films, even if they are 28 years old. only downside is that I wanted the DIGIPACK, which this isn't and play have no idea what stock they have...

  This is heavy Doc!

I cannot think of a better nostalgic trilogy than these. The fact that the whole concept centres around time travel makes them seem all the more perfect.

The BTTF trilogy is as near to perfection (part 2 aside) as you can get. It ticks all the boxes, casting perfect, script perfect, direction perfect. It's well paced and very funny.

Michael J Fox is made for the role of hero Marty McFly and you cannot imagine anyone else playing the part. Eric Stoltz had filmed many hours in the role until he was cruelly but rightly chopped.

At least you can be assured that no more will be made so in buying this trilogy it will remain as one, unlike Indiana Jones for example.

Some people may class these as guilty pleasures but what's to feel guilty about, they're very well made and can be rightly proclaimed as classics. Parts 1 and 3 are without doubt the best of the three but that's not to say that part 2 is terrible it just falters under the brilliance of the others, much like the Godfather 3.

The extra's are brilliant too with some extremely comprehensive documentaries. Some but not all the extras are in 1080p as well.

If you have young children I guarantee that they will love these movies.

As for the transfers.........................................

Universal have granted all 3 movies with a VC-1 encoded, 1080p, 1.85:1 framed transfer each on a 50GB Blu-ray disc of fantastic quality.

The aspect ratio has been properly corrected from the previous DVD release and you can be assured that these films have never looked better.

Part 1 is the weakest with some slight moments of shimmer and haloing but this is very infrequent and never really a problem. The colour contrast is a huge leap from previous releases with natural skin tones. The grain is fine and is never obtrusive, I for one am pleased to see that no digital grain removal has been utilised so the detail is very impressive although detail is noticeably improved on 2 and 3.

Parts 2 and 3 are a big improvement on the first with fantastic detail. Delineation in the blacks and shadows is very well presented with little to no crushing evident. I did not detect any edge enhancement with any of the discs nor did I suffer any compression issues.

All in all a fantastic purchase especially at the price on offer compared to if you purchased them individually. Personally I cannot think why anyone would buy these separately.

Click "BUY" and in the future they will arrive.

  A Bluray MUST HAVE!

| | See all Reviewbyme's reviews (8)

If you own the DVD copy of this, or even the VHS version. You must buy the Bluray.

The bluray transfer is amazing and it seemed like it was shot just yesterday.

Tons of extras on the discs which is a plus.

I must have watched this film hundreds of times, and its brilliant each time.

  Double Back Again!!

| | See all Kevin1075's reviews (754)

I did double dip and buy this on Blu-ray after having the DVD's but this is one of those cases where I really feel that doing so was worth every penny!

The films themselves are so well known now that it seems pointless to summarise them (first one is the best, second one is one of the more original and entertaining sequels ever and although the Western set final part gets less love I actually always enjoyed both it and the sense of completion that it brough to the story) but here it's the truly fantastic work done transferring the films over to Blu-ray.

It's one of the best transfers that I've seen (the scene where the Delorean first emerges from the trailer looks like it was shot yesterday!) and that applies to all three films. Most of the visual effects look brilliant as well although some obviously have dated a little bit here and there (the busy scenes in future Hill Valley with the flying cars etc) and it was a real pleasure to revisit these three films after so many years.

The majority of the extras appear to have been ported over from the old DVD Trilogy set but here there are also brand new commentaries on all three films, plus a new multi-part documentary revisiting the cast and crew now looking back. There is some repetition of information content in all the extra material but overall it's a very healthy selection of extras for the price.

And the films themselves are more than worth it alone!
