I think the first is still the best,but actually I find them all very exciting and fun to watch.
Biff is just great! The ultimate bully!

They're all equally great but I'm most partial to the third one. Love the Wild West setting.

I loved the first one.
The second was cool aswell
The third was okay but the thing that made it bad is the lovestory in it.
Back to the Future Four? Not happening. It's done, it's finished. No need for a fourth one.

I would have to say the first one, because it was the most original of the three. A real downside to the series was that Zemeckis and Gale recycled just about every joke from the first one into the second and third. The second seemed goofier than the first one, if that makes any sense. Kind of like Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. They seemed to take the movies less seriously. With the third one, I really could have done without Doc's love story. They really had a good plot going, with Marty going to 1885 to prevent Doc from dying, but they just ruined it when they introduced Clara into the mix. As for a fourth one, they would be INSANE to try to do another movie without Michael J. Fox, and it just wouldn't be the same without the Delorean, the most rad car EVER!! Besides, they already continued the series in Back to the Future: The Animated Series, although they never did explain how the Delorean was un-destroyed.

I watched this today for about the tenth time and thought exactly the same thing. I guess Robert didnt think of that. Unless there is some other reason.

My favorite is the first one (I'm a child of the '80s, so it makes me feel nostalgic when I watch it), though I enjoy the other two just as much. One of my favorite series that I watch regularly.

I actually like III, the best, I dont know why.
1 was good, and I hardly remember 2. 3 just seemed funnier to me.

I really liked the first one, although I've only seen it a couple of times, and it's been years. I rented the second one and for some reason hated it. I don't remember exactly why, but I do remember not liking it. Last summer, a friend convinced me to watch the third one, and I enjoyed it. I really want to the see the first one again, and maybe I'll give the second one another try.

It has to be the second one, and for the revisiting of 1955 more than anything, and making everything match up.

You may like the beginning of this if you're a BTTF and Chris Lloyd/Doc fan. It was filmed earlier this year.

You're all aware of the framing fiasco with discs 2 and 3, right?

I just called the hotline and arranged to get the V2's.

I read about the framing issues the week the set came out, so I got my corrected versions immediately, probably within the first month of the release.

However, the set was reissued with the corrected versions, so buying the set in a store now will get you the right versions.

Thanks for pointing out that link. I actually had never heard of the V2's before. I didn't even realize the error and I've had my box set of the BTTF trilogy for years! I think I'm going to have to try and get those V2 discs now!!

... it's a shame that even happened at all to such a great set of movies.

I've never really "gotten into" these movies, even the first one, which is the only one I can say I like. When I do occasionally pop one in the player, I'm there for Christopher Lloyd only... but I gotta give part 3 some credit; that one scene taught me how to do the moonwalk.

Part II. I love all the paradox-bits about them being in the exact same positions they were in the first film but from different perspectives, and having to not collide with their past (future) selves. Clever, ingenious editing, and pure, goofy fun. The BTTF trilogy is simply the best (to hell with Ghostbusters, although that is another hilarious sci-fi comedy).

Did Lucas pay Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale anything to call these ideas his own?

I aso wonder if using Coca-Cola as fuel inspired the root beer gag in Lucasarts' "Monkey Island" game...

I've never been as fond of Part III as much as I want to be, but overall it's a terrific trilogy, with one of the smartest, most inventive, literal sequels you'll ever see...

Back to the Future - The Epic?

I just finished watching the Back to the Future trilogy again and I thought of an idea. As you may well know each BttF movie begins right at the end of the one before it (except for BttF I of course). So I am thinking of editing them all together so you are able to watch them one after the other but as if they were one extra long movie.
My only problem is cutting out the opening credits from BttF II and BttF III. The film title is easy to take out but it will be very hard to take out the other credits as they are over footage that is important (pretty sure this only matters with the last film as the opening credits in the second film are superimposed over footage that is unimportant). If worst comes to worst and it is impossible to edit out the opening credits with the footage then I will just have to see if the film can start from the point after the credits.

Anyway, does this sound like a cool idea? Has it already been done? Do you have any suggestions of how to take out the opening credits but not the footage underneath it?

cheers



I was also thinking of doing the epic differently. My friend has a copy of The Godfather - The Epic. Illegally someone sold copies of his edited version of The Godfather Part 1 and Part 2. The difference was that this person had edited the footage so that it was in chronological order.
I think doing BttF this way could be really interesting seeing as the film is about time. the plot may not work so well though.

Thoughts?


cheers

You could cut from Doc Brown fainting to he and Marty reading the letter. When do the opening credits end in Part III - just before Howdy Doody Time starts on the T.V?

they start as he wakes up at howdy doody time. i'm not sure whether the credits still roll after that (i'll check) but i think from him fainting to him waking up could be a nice cross fade moment.

Here's a thought: instead of a cross-fade, you could hear them beginning to read the letter as Marty tries to revive Doc and then just cut to it. You'd have to fiddle with the music and audio at the end of Part II, though...
