Lloyd, Thomas Wilson
You’ve seen these movies of course. The first is as close to cinematic perfection as can be; the second is brilliant and ingenious and dazzling, and was undervalued at the time; the third is a hugely enjoyable comic Western with a rousing train race climax. But you knew all that already.
Extras This 30th Anniversary set’s most intriguing addition is 10- minute short “Doc Brown Saves The World!”, which sees Christopher Lloyd do a straight- to- camera ramble in which he explains why he has to save 2045 from Griff Tannen. Set entirely in a large white room, it’s a fairly amusing trifle.
Also new: a fascinating 22- minute piece about how fans restored the original DeLorean; two witty fake ads for Jaws 19 and hoverboards; and two episodes of the cartoon spin- off. Then there’s a meaty nine- part documentary ( 46 minutes) previously only on DVD.
Goodies from 2013’ s Blu- ray box set are carried over too, including a six- part doc, commentaries, featurettes on the physics of BTTF and the Universal Studios ride, a Michael J Fox Q& A, deleted scenes, behind- the- scenes footage and music videos. Russell Lewin
