Only the credits which are not needed are allowed to be edited. Also the cross fade makes an easy edit as the camera pull back from marty reviving doc to show the to be concluded title. By cross fading before this I skip the theme music as it pulls out giving a much nicer, cleaner cut.

I checked the start of part II as well and credits are over the top of flying through the clouds. at the end of the last credit the music dies down giving just about a second of clouds before it pans down to the flying cars on the sky highway. I only have the dvds and no way of ripping them so i have to figure out a way of getting copies of all three films so i can put them into my editing program.

Hi, indyclonejr. If you get a chance to talk to Claudia Wells, could you (or your dad) please mention to her the short-lived "Herbie, The Love Bug" TV series from 1982. She played the daughter of Dean Jones' love interest in all 5 episodes. The series was a failure but would love to hear what she has to say about it (+ being associated with 2 iconic, film cars).

I got to meet The Doc. He was a zombie. The event was very disorganized and the "body guards" or whatever herded, pushed, poked us in every direction.

I have a question for you all.

Has anyone here seen the original movie in the cinema, back in 1985?

I did (I was 12 at the time) and I loved the movie!

To refute a common myth: DeLorean gullwing doors actually require less clearance to open than regular doors; only 11" inches. (Or 14" depending on what source you refer too.) The BTTF films unrealistically portray them as having a wide swing for dramatic effect (e.g. Doc taking out Biff in BTTF2).

That said, I haven't paid attention to the scene in question; it's probably movie magic.

They were lucky that the doors actually opened at all. After all, it was a DeLorean, one of the worst and most unrelaible cars, which was the biggest joke/paradox of the film.

Blu-ray trilogy due in October. It includes storyboards based on the 1981 first draft in which they nuke the fridge: "Nuclear Test Site Ending Storyboard Sequence: Storyboard sequence of the original proposed ending of the film."

Here's a better poster for part III, by the way.

Back to the Future 25th anniversary UK release

Today, I went to see the new version of the Karate Kid, and it turned out to be a pretty good movie.

On coming out of the theatre, I saw a BTTF poster and it took me a few seconds to realise that this year, there is going to be a re-release of this movie. I believe that the date will be 1st October 2010. For those of you who live in the UK, this was at a Showcase cinema, and I'm not sure if they are just showing it there, or whether it's just in the UK. I've had a look on the web, but can't seem to find any mention of this but I can't imagine them not showing it in the US.

I originally saw the movie in it's original 1985 year of release. I was twelve years old at the time, and fell in love with the movie and had to wait forever to get it on VHS.

That is great. There is a trailer here for the re-release. Unfortunately, there will be no US release. You're lucky! It also goes on to say...

Apparently, you can watch it as many times as you want in a two week period. I'm buying the blu ray on 10/26, no question.

That's phenomenal. I think I ultimately enjoy the train tracks more, but this is some inspired lunacy, no doubt.

Netflix is unfortunately the only place to see the Amazing Stories episode Go the Head of the Class. It's inseparable in my mind from the trilogy. Directed by Robert Zemeckis in 1986, music by Alan Silvestri, written by Bob Gale, starring Christopher Lloyd. (Then cruise over to Mummy Daddy from season one for a great Spielberg impression by Bronson Pinchot and music by Danny Elfman.) Happy Halloween!
