    What do you mean by "misframing problems", exactly?

    Check this out. There was more info on a few other websites but I couldn't find the links quickly.

    Problems with the Back To The Future DVD Set
    Back to the Future redux

    Apparently the problems were well known since the DVD was released first in Australia (region 4) and I think Europe, yet Universal did nothing. Now that it was released in North America and people complained and Bob Gale got involved, Universal is doing something, though it's not clear if they issue corrected version for Australia and elsewhere.

    That first link is great, Malducin, those picture comparisons show the problem perfectly.

    So they cropped the frame "too high". Stink!

    I was going to buy that 3-disc set too (New Zealand is Zone 4, like Australia) when it came out a few months back. Then I was thinking of getting it with some Christmas vouchers.

    Might just hold off a little longer now...

    Biff: ?Two McFlyes with one gun?

    Thats such a fantastic line!!

    and of course this one too when Doc says:

    ?When this baby hits 88 miles per hour....were gonna see some serious ****! ?

    oh man, such great movies...

    see ya around.

    Watch the language, please. I know it's a direct quote from the film and all... but it's against the site policy. />

    You might ant to call Universal in New Zealand or wherever the closest office is down there. There were some comments that the reframed DVDs would only be available region 1, no word on other regions. There was quite a bit of talk in DVDTalk.com or some other review site that had all kinds of info and discussion. If I find it I'll post it.

    Hey, did anyone see MST:3K today? They drive a car with gull wing doors! To further it, later on when Eric sees the skull, one of the robots (I missed which one) exclaims in a Christopher Lloyd voice, "Marty!"

    I can't believe you link me a forum without telling me there was a back to the future thread, I could have been killed! I watched these 3 movies my whole life, I love them! I probubly know every line from the first movie...Marty and Doc have such a great chemistry. Which movie do you guys like the most? I'd probubly have to say the first one but they're all great. Ahh.....tired...

    The first one was the best, but only becaus, well, it was the first one.

    I want that car SOOOOOOO BAD!!!

    I have a question, why did Claudia Wells not return for the second two films? I know why Crispin Glover didn't.

    Did anyone notice that in the first Back to the Future movie, that the mall is

    TWIN pine mall

    but, after the trip to the past, it became,

    LONE pine mall.


    Is this because of Marty running over the pine trees? I would like an explanation.

    Claudia Wells had problems with alcohol during the late 80's. She is fine now.

    Listen to the 6 commentaries on the dvds for the complete story.

    Hah, I loved the Back To The Future Trilogy. :D

    I pretty much tired of watching the first one because its on Cable about every week. My favorite is #2 and the hover board scene.

    I vote for Back To The Future as the best. Parts II and III are a nice bonus, but they really weren't necessary and they did end up making the whole plot seem a bit forced. At least they managed to keep the plot together nicely.

    If it wasn't for the Back to the Future movies, I wouldn't be who I am today :D

    The first movie was a big influence on me! I saw it when I was only five and that instilled in me a love for skateboards and guitars. And saying the word "Butthead" :cool:

    I would continuously rewind that Johnny B. Goode scene until my eyes froze! All my life I was turned on by guitars whether it was watching someone play or being in a room with them. Anytime I'd be in a place with an electric guitar it would drive me crazy! I am now an obsessed and dedicated guitarist and anytime someone is around my electric guitars or is watching me do Guitar God-type riffs and licks it doesn't turn them on and it kind of confused me for a while. Then I remembered how BTTF instilled that love for guitars at an early age ;)

    I ADORED these films! :D

    I grew up with a huge crush on Michael J. Fox and have loved his work since Family Ties.

    I loved the first film and was thrilled when they finally made the second. The third was sweet as Doc fell for Clara and got hitched. But I felt alot of part 3 was just silly. 8-}

    Btw, I got the DVD boxed set for X-mas and the outtakes were so funny. I thought it was a great DVD set.[face_laugh]

    Indeed BTTF follows the trilogy scheme.

    First one: The freshest and the favorite
    Second one: The Darkest and the coolest--often the best made
    Third one: Goofy and stupid at parts, but still satisfying.
