I had preordered the Back to the Future DVDs, and they arrived today. However, Julie made me aware that there was a framing problem in the original release (a second run, supposedly in February, would correct it). Sure enough, I checked DVDTalk and confirmed it:
Apparently there’s an issue with the widescreen framing for Back to The Future II & II. As with past problems Universal is making good on these discs by exchanging them. Send the 2 discs with your Name, Address, Phone, and the reason you’re returning it to: Back to the Future DVD Returns, PO Box 224468 Dallas, Texas 75260. Fixed Box sets are planned to be on store shelves by late February. ‘Props’ to the DVD Talkers who Identified the problems with the Back to the Future Box Set.
So, I’ll be sending back parts II and III out of my boxed-set for replacements.
