In 2015, there are several items in both the Café 80s and Blast from the Past which would have been familiar to the audience in 1989 but not to Marty, being from 1985. In the Café 80s, The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986), Pee-wee's Playhouse (1986), The Geraldo Rivera Show (1987) and Dead Ringers (1988) are among the series and films playing on the many televisions behind the bar. There is also a poster celebrating the San Francisco 49ers' victory in Super Bowl XXIII on January 22, 1989. Furthermore, the Ollie North Platter offered on the menu and a bumper sticker on the wall reading "For the first time in history, the South loves North" both reference the 1988/1989 trial of Colonel Oliver North for his role in the Iran-Contra affair. The items for sale in Blast from the Past include a talking plush doll of the title character from Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), Dragnet (1987) and Stand-Up Reagan (1989) on VHS, the video games Jaws (1987) and R.C. Pro-Am (1988), the 1988 novel "The Cardinal of the Kremlin" by Tom Clancy, a JVC camcorder from 1988 and a Black & Decker DustBuster from 1988. See more »

Unconfirmed: in an airline version, Marty walks up to the Cafe 80's, and sees those little yellow signs like, "Baby on Board," and others that were a fad in the late 80's. He looks at them and says, "Hey, I don't remember these." See more »
'Back to the Future Part II' takes off where the first movie left. Pretty much the essence of the first one is present except this time Elisabeth Shue has been cast as Marty's girlfriend. Like the first movie, this one too is non-stop fun. The original plot once again, brilliantly revolves around the time-travelling paradox but this time the interference with the time-line has huger repercussions that are more complicated to solve. It's slightly a little more complex than the first movie but the energy and entertainment level is the same. I liked Zemeckis's version of 2015. It has that ultracool look and the futuristic gadgets and gizmos were quite amusing. The soundtrack is equally wild. The camera-work and special effects are very well done considering that the challenge was greater (e.g. showing two Michael J. Fox on the same screen). Okay, so showing the same actor share the screen with himself isn't anything new but in most movies/shows it looks poorly done which is not the case here. With most movies, the sequel tends to be a let down but 'Back to the Future Part II' is a great continuation of the first film.
