    Funny how things stick with you. My earliest memory of the thrill movies can bring is seeing the trilogy over and over again on VHS, I fully rediscovered them from a relatively more mature perspective when the DVD's came out and now any of the three are an immediate go-to if they are on streaming services like they are now. For me there's no better franchise to come out of it's decade and is Zemeckis' peak, and arguably Spielberg's too.

    Streaming is still king but the studios are still making an effort, whether through on their own or through boutique labels (Criterion, Kino Lorber, Scream/Shout Factory, etc.), to put out older movies on Blu-ray or 4K UHD.

    4K Blu-rays have amazing quality, the bitrate is so much higher than streaming.

    That hoverboard looks really interesting...

    Meh. The only thing I'd be interested in would be a rough cut of the Stoltz version.

    Another set?? I already have 2 lol. I'll be passing up on this one, but Back to the Future is probably my all time favorite film; it really is perfect (Of course there are minor flaws, but I can look past them) I have seen each film countless times and I'm still discovering things to this day. But I am DYING to see that Stoltz cut and whatever else they had for that version.

    Sad to find out that the set for the third film burned down awhile back, I always wanted to visit it. Also sad, the drama behind the scenes for this movie, including Crispin Glover's beef. Crazy how so many people don't know that isn't him in the second film.

    I think he was very game to do it, but this was around the time his Alzheimer's was starting to get bad so it was likely nixed for that reason.

    One of my favorite moments ever and quite possibly the best trade-off of lines we get between Doc and Marty was in Part III where Doc and Marty trade their iconic lines "This is heavy" and "Great Scott".

    I like it in part 3 when Marty comes to the saloon in those goofy clothes, straight from a b-Western and the real cowboys are bemused.

    I feel like most people think Part III sucks, but I've always liked that movie. It just has the misfortune of being undeniably inferior to the first two classic and iconic films, but it's still a fun movie. The original Star Wars trilogy and The Dark Knight trilogy suffer from the same issue – the first two are SO great and raised the bar SO high that the third one was inevitably a bit of a disappointment to most people. I'd also lump the first three Alien movies into this category, as well, though I realize I'm even more in the minority on that one.

    I love all 3, but, yes, 1 and 2 are amazing.

    Actually, I find Batman Begins the weaker of the three. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but I love Dark Knight and Rises.

    Alien 3: Assembly Cut is my favorite Alien film (yup I said it), followed by Aliens: Director's Cut, and Alien: Theatrical Cut. The rest can burn in a fire :P

    See, at first I thought this when I was younger since we were so used to the modern feel of the first two, but after watching all three again back to back, the third film fits right in there with them. Yes, it may be slightly inferior but the way the movie starts is probably my favorite opening of the three, with many clever moments that the first two hold as well.

    It was actually Michael. J. Fox's idea for the film to the take the western approach for the third film. I found it so hilarious when he first enters Hill Valley and the Clock Tower isn't even finished being build yet lol.

    The third film had one of those "oh, huh" moments where real life was shown in a way that you'd never really seen before: when he's at dinner with his grandparents (forget how many removed) and he takes a bite and there's shot still in the bird. for some reason that's one of the scenes that stuck with me the most from the film.

    odds that they digitally edit this scene?

    I thought 3 was a better film than 2. While I liked 2, it's too jarring, 1985 to 2015 to an alt. 1985 to 1955. I liked how 3 was just a straight-forward film about getting back to the future, but in the old West. Thomas Wilson was great as Mad Dog Tannen, it was almost hard to believe he's the same actor who played Biff. I also really liked Mary Stein as Doc's love interest. It's usually hard to put a new major character in the third act, but she pulled it off.

    Thomas Wilson is severely under appreciated when it comes to the publicity and roles from this trilogy. I love his story with all the drama that surrounded the production and filming, he was called into the office and thought he was getting fired.

    I remember when I was a kid, watching the third film, I thought they were going to kill Marty since that scene gets a little dark pretty fast. Crazy to find out that the noose actually malfunctioned during that hanging scene!

    From my point of view they are all great films, but I certainly understand the reverence saved for the first film. Very hard to say which is the better of the two sequels, mostly because they are so diametrically opposed in terms of how they are structured. So much of the genius of the third is how much the tables have turned and how Doc is acting on his emotions and Marty is the more logical one, while never seeming to betray the cores of each character. The way it plays with scene structures from the first, applied to the vastly different setting of the wild west, and that the film is essentially much more of a love story when it gets to the stuff with Mary Steenburgen's character.

    I watched all three in their newest 4K restorations, which is a little bit fitting because I'm now living where I grew up, when I watched all three I don't know how many times. They all stand up in their own ways, to this day.

    It was all fucking great.

    I saw 2 and 3 in the theater with my brother, and I THINK they showed a trailer for 3 at the end of 2?

    It was ALL.fucking great.

    35th? Seems like I just bought the telltale game to celebrate the 30th.

    Yes! It is actually part of the runtime, so any time it is on television, they show the trailer. I've grown to absolutely adore Part III. Sure as hell doesn't get enough love.

    I have tried to watch part 3 several times, and I don’t think I ever made it all the way through. Maybe I’ll try again

    I think this is the oldest movie franchise in which I saw each one when they were originally released in the theater. I was five when the first one came out.

    I really dig all three of them - particularly the first two. The original is my favorite, but part 2 is still one of the most creative sequels I've ever seen.
