Blu-Ray Review: ‘Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy’

Back to the Future

CHICAGO – It’s rare to see a series of films and its fans treated as incredibly as Universal has with the 25th Anniversary edition of the “Back to the Future” trilogy. This is one of the most remarkable and impressive Blu-ray releases to date: A box set that not only features pristinely-restored versions of the three films but includes hours of spectacular special features. It’s a must-own and arguably the best release in a very good season for Blu-ray collectors.

Blu-Ray Review: Comedy Water is Fine in ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’
