Just waiting for the whiners to complain about wanting each individually

Anyway, great news on the set. Sounds like it'll be done right the first time.

My God. Ironically 25 years to the day that Marty went back in time. Awesome, awesome news. Can't wait.

I love this part (from BTTF.com)
And since everyone wants to know, there are three very brief snippets of Eric Stoltz incorporated into one of the documentaries.” You heard it here first — finally, film footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly!!
Never thought I'd ever see any Stoltz footage ever. This is amazing.

They just never appealed to me, if they looked old I just didn't care. But I'm only 22, I never really started going out of my way to see most movies until about four years ago. I think the advent of BD is a great thing and it really sparked my interest in movies even more. I believe the presentation is a crucial component of the entire experience.

(And the film grain is preserved, so they still look like movies should look.) And hearing the sound in full dynamic range is — okay, I’ll say it — a blast!”
And did he watch it on a 17" screen or a 60"+ one? Gladiator sure looked great when viewing it on 17"...

For all those interested:

Yeah. You're right.

You may have got more pigeonholed, and you would've been tied down for sequels too.
I would've been unable to walk down the street! It's a whole different life. I was lucky in that way.

So tell me, is missing out on "Back to the Future" a sore spot though?
You know, it was twenty-something years ago and I rarely look back, if at all, but in retrospect, I think just getting through that difficult period helped me realise how freeing it really was. I went back to acting school, I moved to Europe, I did some plays in New York and I actually invested in... [pause] ...myself in a way that was much healthier for me. If I had become a massive star, I don't know if I wouldn't have gone into therapy. On the other hand, I would've been exceedingly rich which would've been wonderful! [laughs]
A little more prying from Clint here: http://www.moviehole.net/200718530-e...ew-eric-stoltz

I never thought about the date! That's awesome! I wonder if Universal did that deliberately or if it was just "an amazing coincidence"

I will wait and see how BTTF2 is framed before considering this.

Thank you

It wasn't just a coincidence. This date had been planned for sometime...unless another Trilogy of films moved into the last week of October. But with BTTF now dated, that'll no doubt now come out 2-3 weeks later as to not squander either Trilogies sales. Wonder where Aliens will fit in. If studios learned anything in the past few years, is don't put all your biggies out at once - especially on Blu-ray and when they are high priced.

I wasn't referring to it being a coincidence that they picked October 26th, I was referring to it being a coincidence that they picked a date that reflected the actual date in the movie if they were even aware that they did that.

I'm going to bet that the framing on BTTF2 is going to be just fine, considering that the issue was fixed well over 7 years ago, and that it was a lesson learned for a new set/transfer.

I may have imagined this, but I think I read that this sequence is what ultimately became the 'nuke the fridge' scene in Indy IV.

i still dont understand why you continue to buy blurays since they allways seem to disapoint you based on your posts on this and other sites.
perhaps you should just stick to hulu plus, since your "SOLD" on that

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that "Enchantment Under the Sea Revisited" is not going to be included, but...it's something everyone should see if they haven't yet. Here it is:

You're not far off. The first draft of BTTF originally had the time machine as a refrigerator. Given Spielberg's involvement in both series it wouldn't surprise me if the "nuke the fridge" scene was implemented from the earliest draft of the first film.
