This is the edit I've been wanting to see ever since owning the DVD box set and watching the deleted scenes, satisfying my life-long curiousity about that damn bowl of peanut brittle at the dinner scene. Whilst watching this cut is an editing lesson in itself (did we really need to know why George overslept? Not really, and the way the 'Darth Vader' scene is cut in the original seems extra judiciously done now, in hindsight), overall you can never have too much Back to the Future. Bobson's done all us fans a huge favour by providing this extra-length cut of one of the greatest movies of all time.
Very nice edit! I remember watching the deleted scenes and thinking how great some of them would be in the actual movie. There are obvious drops of quality when the deleted scenes are implemented but I doubt there's a way to fix that without some HEAVY editing. Also makes a great film longer so that's always a bonus.
If you like extended cuts, deleted scenes and you're a Back to the future fan.
This is the version you want to go. The original Back to the future cut is pretty much flawless. Bobson cut is very enjoyable to watch.
I like the way the alternative scenes are put together.
If you ask me, I rather prefer the original release because of the faster narrative. Now I understand why the extended scenes have been cut out in the first place. But I give 10 out of 10 for the initiative and the enjoyment I had in watching the Greater Scott Edition.
Where is the Back to the Future 2 extended pls? :P
