Back to the Future was easily my favorite film trilogy growing up, with Back to the Future II being my absolute favorite. I was amazed by the future. I wanted to go to the future, and get clothes that would shrink to me, and shoes that would lace themselves, and a hoverboard. Oh, a hoverboard. I dreamt of the hoverboard nightly and swore that they’d be released to the general public. I wanted to break my neck on one so badly.
In Back to the Future II, we see Marty McFly go to the year 2015, and it is HELLA AWESOME. (For the full plot, check here. Also, watch the original trailer.) We watch Marty venture out into central square of Hill Valley from the side alley where he and Doc arrived in the flying DeLorean. There are cars taking off into the sky, hoverboards, people looking futuristic, and a 3-D movie advertisement for JAWS that appears to eat McFly whole. Again, it is HELLA AWESOME.
My favorite part is where he ventures into Cafe 80’s and we see a video waiter taking orders. It’s Michael Jackson. And he’s trying to sell a girl a fajita tortilla pita.
“Try our La Bamba fajita tortilla pita. It’s got a hot salsa, avocados, cilantro mix, with your choice of beans, chicken, be-be-beef, or pork…”
