In today’s podcast we continue our discussion from a few episodes ago and talk about things that should have happened by now in our real world if the world of movies was true. For instance, if the events of 2001, A Space Odyssey, and it’s sequel, 2010, are true then we should have massive spacecraft traveling throughout our solar system right now. What else should we have that we are missing out on. Today, we figure it out.
Brick Room regular, Gordy, is back for this episode that was, admittedly, recorded some time ago. Forgive us. Our hectic lives interrupted our regular recording and posting schedule, but we are correcting that and you can count on regular content from The Brick Room moving forward.
Which universe is cooler? Star Wars or Harry Potter? Is a Jedi more powerful than a wizard?
More than anything else, these are the questions on everyone’s mind right now in this country and The Brick Room is here to help you learn the answers.
Disclaimer, this podcast was recorded a few weeks ago so some comments may be out of date, but Star Wars and Harry Potter are timeless. Grab a glass of blue milk or butterbeer (whichever you prefer) and listen in as we solve the world’s problems.
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.
This episode gets deep, everybody. In today’s episode Gordy is back as a special guest, you’ll remember him from the Jupiter Ascending podcast. We get into an interesting conversation about death. Where do we go when we die, how will we die, why do we die? It’s deep but we’re not all serious. There’s plenty of humor too (this is still a comedy podcast after all). Class it up for this one. Grab a whiskey or scotch and take a listen to this:
