The Future

Psst.  Hey you, come a little closer.  I want to tell you something about the future.  It will either be:  A mind-bendingly awesome; utopian landscape where all of Earth’s problems have been resolved and technology and humanity have evolved to create harmony.  

Or it might be a fucked-up dystopian nightmare. Where artificial intelligence has surpassed that of it’s creators.  Or perhaps humans have ravaged the Earth to such a degree that it has gone into full revolt.  Or A scarcity of resources has humans warring over water.  It depends on which film you watch or what time of day you might have asked Stanley Kubrick’s opinion.

Eclectic Method has supercut some of our favorite scenes from movies that turn a predictive eye to the future. Blade Runner’s Megacities alongside A.I.’s flooded New York and Idiocracy’s run down shanty towns. Some technology predictions in these films have already proven to be accurate and some are still a ways off - or not! … cameras on every corner, oil shortages, massive cultural uprisings in the middle east, retinal scans, X-Rays, flying cars and hoverboards, hybrid humans, robots, A.I., teleportation and so on. Who really watches Sci-Fi for the plot anyway, you wanna see the goodness condensed.

Rest assured though, in the future, as in the present, there will be both Coke and Pepsi!
