My DVD's were scratched. A buddy was nice enough to get me the blu-rays for Christmas!
I bought the DVDs the day they came out.

Bar none, my favorite film trilogy.
Same here. I loved the trailer/teaser for the Back to the Future DVD set. Really gets one pumped for the series!
One thing I've always found interesting about the movie is how it seemed Zemeckis knew to "over-do" the 1980s in the same manner he "over-did" the 1950s. The '50s are shown pretty much in that over idyllic way, much how people claim to remember it (when reality it was likely less Wally and the Beaver and High Schools being out of Grease.) With over-obvious nods to the time in advertisements and set dressings and such. But even the 1980s were a bit "overdone." Showing the aerobics studio, the blight of "Reaganomics" around the town square, Marty's clothing involving a lot of denim and a goose down vest, hell, even with the use of the DeLorean.
It's humorous just how 80s the movie is.
