THE FUTURE OF FILM

It's been 25 years since "Back to the Future" was released, and while the movie now can seem dated to people who weren't around to watch it in a theater, it's still a fun ride.

The 25th Anniversary Trilogy has been released on Blu-ray. For those of you who don't know, "Back to the Future" starred Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, who goes back to the 1950s in a time machine made out of a DeLorean and becomes entangled with his parents on the day they originally met and became a couple. Marty has to make sure his parents fall in love by the end of the Under the Sea dance before his existence is wiped out. The sequels are less charming but just as much fun.

The Blu-ray features two hours of all-new features, including a six-part retrospective documentary featuring never-before-seen interviews with the cast, crew and filmmakers.

Among the extras are Fox in a storyboard sequence; The Physics of Back To The Future, and 16 deleted scenes. It is $47.99 on Amazon.com.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"I don't like trends. If anything, I want to look the opposite of what is being predicted! Above all, I dislike vulgarity. Being sexy is all good, but there is such a thing as too much."

-- Actress Diane Kruger, in People magazine.
