I have seen Back To The Future many times as a child. However, I didn't care that the main character had a DeLorean as his main vehicle.
Many of the references like the DeLorean had no impact to the story. For every plot-relevant reference that makes sense (such as Mecha-Godzilla, Blade Runner, and WarGames), there are countless more that are just there for no other purpose. Like I said before, at least the Easter Egg hunt justifies these references as one of them may be a clue to the goal.
That all said, I thought the film was fine (good, even) due to the visual effects and that most of the references were regulated to a few scenes.
