    Please somebody out there tell me that Back To The Future will be released seperately as well as a box set. I hated the 2nd and 3rd ones and will not purchase the box set.

    I have a bad feeling about this one though......

    For now. I'm sure there will be an individual release in the near future.

    I will not buy it unless I can get separate releases. I hated the 2nd and 3rd installments and will only purchase the first movie.

    If it is only released as a set with no intention of separate releases, this would be one of the worst mistakes in DVD release history.

    I loved the entire triogy so I wouldn't have a problem buying all three at once.

    I too loved the first one. The second was a duplicate of the first almost. The third I saw only part of and was not crazy about but if it is cheap enough I won't complain. Maybe I might sell the second and third and recoup my costs.

    Isn't the set only going for like $30? I think that's what I've seen on some websites selling it. That's probably why they are being sold as a set.

    No, most websites are selling it for about $40.

    While I don't object to getting the others, I have to agree, BTTF 2 and 3 are just lazy movies

    I think the majority of people who want to buy one will want to buy all three. Hardly "one of the worst mistakes in DVD release history".

    I have no plans to buy this set. I would buy the original if it were offered by itself, but I don't care for the sequels in the slightest, so I'll pass until the original is made available separately.

    Back to the Future is one of my favorite films so I wouldn't hesitate to pay $40 for the first film, getting the whole trilogy at that price is like icing on the cake.

    The fact that you you can't buy JUST the first BTTF or the ORIGINAL version of E.T. is insulting.
    These studios have no problem releasing separate Widescreen & Full-Frame versions of countless other releases(and even multiple special editions of the same movie) and yet they make me and others who might only want one movie or one version out of the set.
    Why not release this like Jurrasic Park?? Give us the option. Godfather, Indiana Jones & Star Wars are exceptions because they're all amazing movies(Well, perhaps not Godfather III) but you wouldn't see all of the Star Trek movies released as just a boxed set. I didn't care for the first movie, but thought 2 and 3 were awesome. I bought 2 and will get 3 next month, but I thought BTTF 2 and especially 3 were GARBAGE.
    If anyone wants to start a petition about getting separate versions of BTTF and even the original E.T. released count me in!!

    I absolutely loved the first Back to the Future, however I'm not too crazy about parts 2 or 3. That being said I will be buying the set without hesitation, even if they do offer separate releases.

    Look, the box is the only way to have it, because all 3 movies comprise a single storyline. It doesn't deserve to be partially owned by anyone, because it's basically one movie.

    If I were the one making money off these releases then I would be making the same decisions for the most profit possible. Making movies is a business, not a non profit organization to make an enjoyable product for consumers.
