The monthly Blu-ray magazine of Australian home cinema retailer JB Hi-Fi features an ad for several titles on the format, all of them already available except for one: the Back to the Future Trilogy. No specific street date or release details are provided, other that it is "Coming Soon."
It is worth mentioning that this year is the 25th anniversary of the first Back to the Future movie.
My sister is 11. I introduced her to Back To The Future sometime last summer. Since she watchs the trilogy at least twice a month. Love it! It is great to share with her these things: have gotten her into some major classics as well and most recently The African Queen. It is great when kids are open-minded about these things. That said, bring on the Blus!
Stella Baines: He's a very strange young man.
Sam Baines: He's an idiot. Comes from upbringing. His parents are probably idiots too. Lorraine, if you ever have a kid that acts that way I'll disown you.
These are pretty much my all-time favorite movies, and I can't wait to have them on Blu-Ray! (yes, even the sequels). I just hope Universal doesn't do something stupid like putting these on 'flipper' discs. I want the Blu-Rays to have their own discs (if a separate DVD disc is included with each movie, that's fine, but I don't care either way), and each movie should be in it's own case (preferably all housed in a box-set box). Hopefully all of the extras from the DVDs make it over to the Blu-Ray (including the newer extras included on the new 2nd disc that came with the individual release of Part I).
A local theater actually had an event back in February where they screened the first BTTF and some of the actors were there signing autographs, taking pictures, etc. My wife and I went and it was awesome. I met Christopher Lloyd, James Tolkan, Lea Thompson, and Claudia Wells. It was a good time! I got my picture taken with all of them, and had Christopher Lloyd sign my BTTF DVD, and James Tolkan signed my 1987 live action Masters of the Universe movie DVD.
I was also at a comic convention recently and they had a Delorian there made up to look like the one from BTTF (it wasn't entirely accurate, but was still cool). I got to sit in it and get a picture taken with it. It was fun, but it is a rather uncomfortable car to sit in.
Of all the 80s movies I have seen, all three Back to the Future movies are my favorites. Christopher Lloyd will always be Dr. Emmett Brown in the back of my head whenever I see him in anything else. And between BTTF and Howard the Duck, Lea Thompson is probably responsible for my personal preference for brunettes.
I for one and really fired up to revisit some serious 'Hello... McFly...' and 'butthead' references! Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd were tremendous in the first two; the third I can do without. One of the coolest scenes was when Marty was standing over his dad's bed with the chemical suit on and hitting his dad with some screamin' guitar riffs delivered via a Walkman, classic!
Will only buy the first once it becomes available as a standalone edition.
I love the Darth Vader stuff as well as the guitar noodling. Too bad Michael J. didn't play it for real, and it's painfully obvious, but it's great fun nevertheless.
He did play it for real, on the set at least. I think that they got an actual guitarist though to dub it in the studio so it sounded better and not like a live performance. And painfully obvious? hey butthead hello, hello, look again the only thing that isnt there is the rhythm guitar that is playing on the track. You can tell though that they dubbed it during certain portions of the solo though, mainly the end where Marty just does a bend but on the track its a vibrato bend.
who was originally suppose to play the Michael J Fox character in Back to the future before taking another movie role and what movie was it for, also in what recent TV show did the movie theaters sign state this actor Staring in Back to the future.
Honestly, I don't get the fascination with this Trilogy. And before you say something, yes, I grew up through this era, and loved the films...then...but not so much anymore. Never got them on DVD, and don't expect to get them on BD. Just not my cup of tea these days. Just not into the adventure comedies these days. Same thing goes for a lot of bands I used to collect on cassette back in the '80s and '90s. Just don't follow them anymore in the digital age.
No, you're not the only one that thinks that Phil. These are my favorite movies of all time and I think part 2 is by far the best. The way they integrated the 1st one into it is unparalleled. Sequels don't get any better than that one.
The first two are great, the third is pretty horrible. I think that's the general concensus.
While I realize Robert Zemeckis directed these films, Steven Spielberg Produced them and I'm pretty sure it's property he has a long of power over. If Universal could have tossed these out on HD DVD during the format war, believe me they would have.
The first one is an absolute classic... the sequels were 'ok' and had some nice moments here and there but they lost me with that goofy flying time traveling train at the end of the 3rd one. Still a day one buy for me just for the first one!
Are you sequel-haters serious? The first one is a classic - I think we're all in agreement on that - but you can't deny the tight scripting for Part II is pretty awesome and I love Westerns so Part III is just all sorts of cool.
I remember seeing Part I on the big screen when I was 8-years old and this is the one franchise that I really hope doesn't fall foul of the remake/re-imagining trend.
C'mon guys. An Australian home theater magazine is our only source for this info? Doesn't anybody think this might just be a simple typo or art department blunder?
I'm really looking forward to BTTF on Blu-ray, because I can't watch it anymore in standard def because I'm spent. I've probably seen it 20 times. But I'm not so stoked that a little ad in a obscure magazine is going to do it for me.
Amazon's been listing the BTTF Blu-ray for quite some time, but we all know it's just a formality, and not an indication that it's actually on the horizon.
