    This documentary is tough to view since it's split onto the three separate discs (rather than being put on a 4th Disc with the other Back to the Future supplements). It's enlightening and provides some interesting retrospective, but unfortunately, it suffers from a lack of participation from the cast and crew. All we hear from are writer/producer Bob Gale, director Robert Zemeckis, and Michael J. Fox. Overall, covering three films in 45 minutes is pretty difficult, and after the long wait for BTTF to come to DVD, I feel a little bit slighted. Would have liked to hear from the other actors, like Christopher Lloyd, Tom Wilson, and Lea Thompson, and exec producer Steven Spielberg.

    Star and director of "Back to the Future," Michael J. Fox and Robert Zemeckis (respectfully), give us some insightful...well...insights into the making of one of the best films of the past fifty years in... "Back to the Future: Making the Trilogy".

    It's not what one would call an excellent documentary, but it sure is interesting, and it gets a recommendation from me.

    4/5 stars -

    This documentary is a decent but lackluster attempt to explain the story line, the effects, and the difficulties in dealing with time travel.

    This was above average as far as its inclusions, but it still left a bit to be desired in way of presentation, style, set designs for the interviews, etc. You might say WTF?! This is ~about~ a movie, not the movie itself! Well, if you're going to review a documentary about a movie, you need to review it as you would the movie itself. Style, set designs, backgrounds, props, the look and overall feel of the work is just as important.

    While this work was professional it was not stylish. It felt a bit deflated and tired. Good thing the movies maintained the feeling of "liveliness" this attempt never quite achieved. A bit of a disappointment, really.

    It rates a Documentary Scale of 4.4/10 from...
