Episode #128: The Future Is Now!

According to Back To The Future II, we should have self lacing shoes, flying cars, food rehydration machines, and all sorts of other cool stuff by now.  In fact, we should have had all that stuff by 2015.  If the terminator movies are to be believed the entire world should a post apocalyptic wasteland right now.  What other movie predictions have failed to come true?  Are there any movie prediction that have come true?  Of course there are hundreds of movies that make predictions about the future and we can’t cover them all, but Marc found a website that lists some of these predictions, in “movie world” chronological order.

In this week’s podcast we explore some of those predictions and compare them to our actual reality.  If Stanley Kubrick could predict the future we would have had enormous spaceships flying manned missions to Jupiter by 2001.  That obviously didn’t happen.  What else didn’t happen.  Listen in and find out.
