Discussion in 'Movies & The Cinema' started by Marty McFly, Feb 9, 2002.
off to see this tonight
Just got back, about 20 people in the cinema (no kids)
The picture looked flawless...... Bring on the blu-ray
Have they re-touched any effects?
Brilliant, looking forward to the Blu Ray release
Just found out BTTF is rereleased in cinemas. Looked up my local cinema (not a major chain) but found it's coming this October, so definately showing it.
Will take my 2 teenage kids to see it.
I'm so excited Hope the kids enjoy it too!
I have to admit I had little or no interest in this as a Blu or a cinema relaunch but I saw a clip on TV that brought it all back. I hated the last one but I may buy them to replace my Laserdisc of the first one.
No, the only difference I could see was they have removed the "to be continued" at the end.
Saw this at the cinema today, was one of the most enjoyable cinema experiences in a long time.
Never got to see this first time through as was only 5 yrs old.
I really wish they would do this with 80's classics more often, to see the likes of Ghostbusters, Indianna Jones, Gremlins etc on the cinema would be great.
I really want to see part 2 on the cinema now but not going to happen (I did see this at the cinema in 89).
I saw it the 1st time around. I was about nine and found it really fun until he went into the past, then I found it quite boring with a few funny bits.
That was because I was young and stupid.
Now I think the film is great, although I'm not fussed about spending over £20 (tickets, drinks, popcorn) for me and the wife to see it again, when the BD will be out soon for only slightly more cash.
The local odeon (merry hill) used to do a Mystery Movie Monday, where you would pay £2 and not find out what was on until it started playing. Usualy it was some golden oldies, like Jurrasic Park, Event Horizon, Starship Troopers to name a few, and sometimes it would play a film that was opening that weekend so you got to see the film early and for just £2 !!
That was my local Odeon too!
They also used to do excellent Halloween promotions. Got to see Friday the 13th on the big screen for a ridiculously cheap price and it also allowed admittance to another horror film free so saw the newly released Texas Chainsaw remake the following day for nothing. Oh, the nostalgia.
I'll definitely be getting round to seeing BTTF.
I'd love to see Jurassic Park again on the big screen too.
Funny you should say that - I saw Ghostbusters at my local theatre last night in their little 200 seater movie studio. They were even allowing you to bring your alcoholic drinks in too. Picture and sound quality wasn't amazing by today's standards but it was great watching it on a big screen for the first time. I've put in a request for Raiders of the Lost Ark...
Its the sound I remember more than anything.
I think its the 1st film I ever saw in DTS (screen 9) and it was a memorable experience. Still sounded great, high pitch squeels from raptors, to the bass when the T rex is coming
Probably because it was the first film to use DTS Classic, been watching the 1.85:1 1080i Sky HD recording a lot, hurry up BD
Saw BTTF at the cinema at the weekend and enjoyed it, bit young to see it at the cinema first time round - I'd have been about 4
I just saw this today at Didsbury and was very impressed with picture and sound.
It seemed the sound was pumped up quite loud as the latest orange ad and cineworld trailer were mega loud compared to normal, i prefer this as often I find the sound a bit low in certain screens number two being the worst imo.
The image was first class as well, after star trek I think this was the best looking digital film I have seen at the cinema. You could have counted the wrinkles in doc brown's neck while in 1985, i wasn't sure if extra make up was used in order to age him a bit. Also the surround sound was good when the car got to 88 and during the storm at the end, top marks to didsbury for a change keep up the good work.
I reckon this will be a good blu-ray set to watch now.
Just got back from seeing this in Milton Keynes. Awesome film and a very good transfer, as mentioned above, the wrinkles in Doc's neck (and Strickland's) in 1985 are so clear. The best thing about it all was the audience. They were all so respectful and got into the film too, such as cheering when George lays out Biff and applauding at the end. Really great night.
If you live in London, then the Prince Charles cinema in Leceister Square is worth checking out. They often show old (and really old) films there including recently, Tron and the non-digital BTTF.
Anyhoo, back to BTTF...
I saw it today at the huge screen in White City's Westfield shopping centre.
They've done an excellent job of cleaning up the image as I don't think I saw even one scratch on the film. This compares to a free screening Frijj did in Chelsea a couple of years ago which used a very poor quality print.
There was only FOUR other people in the cinema at the time. This was my intention as I didn't want to watch it around noisy kids or annoying chavs. There was one couple who talked a bit, but I think that was about the film.
Saw this last night in my local Vue, about 30 people and they were all BTTF fans, great experience and they have done a great job on cleaning it up, looks like it was shot yesterday and the audio, that lighting strike has never sounded so great
Took my eldest lad (7) to watch it yesterday.. Just like my dad took me all those years ago... Brilliant movie one of my all time fav's , my son loved it, he has already seen it on DVD but we had the whole cinema to ourselves, couldn't belive it was empty, but it made it special for my lad so it was great!
Finally got to watch it last night, Only about 10 people in the cinema and absolutely loved it. Shame it totalled just under £45 for pizza hut and tickets. Wonder how much the same would have cost back in 1985
I went to watch this on Friday and it was great fun. You almost forget how brilliant a film it is: it's lean, with an excellent pace and is really, really funny.
One thing I found weird.... he goes back 30 years to 1955 and it's so hugely different. But the film originally came out 25 years ago, so if you were making it now, he wouldn't be going much further back than 1985!
Have things changed that much?!
The internet, iPhones, etc. Well, at least we still have the 80's fashion and Libyan terrorists!
Went to see this yesterday and what great fun it was
BTTF probably handles time travel and paradoxes better than any other film made. Yeah I said it
Reading through the trivia on imdb just now, it's amazing how much attention has been paid to the changes that Marty's trip makes to 1985.
The sign of the mall changing from Twin pine to Lone pine definitely took me aback too when I read the trivia a year or so back on IMDB and always look out for it when watching the film.
Its the little in joke things like that which make it such a superb film.
Can't wait for the blu-rays to appear this month.
Another trivia page Back To The Future Movie Trivia - The 80s Movies Rewind
My young son absolutely loves this film, so I'm going to get the BluRay once it's out (if it isn't already?) and have 'lads night in' watching it on the projector...I can't wait as it's years (like around 25 ) since I saw it on the 'big screen'. Frightening that the film goes back nearly as far as the Deloren did. I wonder if any of the film's predictions for 2015 will come true like the baseball score did mentioned in the trivia linked above.
Eric Stoltz As Marty McFly footage
This is an 'extra' clip on the new BTTF Blu-Ray release next week (embedded below), so you may want to avoid, or not.

I doubt they will but I hope they have some footage of Eric with no talking over it just so we can see what he was like in the role. a good 10 minutes or so would be awesome.
Watched this at the cinema tonight and I was grinning ear to ear all the way through. Still my joint fav film, along with the second one
Its amazing I have seen it so many times at home yet its the best film I have seen at the cinema for ages, probably since The Dark Knight.
I am itching for the blu ray now. Hurry up

Lea Thompson is quite the MILF! Much hotter than the old Lorraine McFly!
For anyone in the capital who didn't get around to seeing BTTF on the big screen, then it is being shown at the Barbican this Saturday evening (although I don't know if it's the remastered digital version or not).
