Wouldn't it be funny if there were some drastic changes in the next 8 years and the future does turn out that way.




Gentlemen's fashion requiring the wearing of two ties to work.  Hope that does not come about.

I was always a big fan of the Bowler Hat with suit. Classic English look that should be a pre-requisite for any office worker.

F**k it, ANY worker!

in 1985 though, 2015 was really distant, like 2037 is to us now so they probably thought they would have stuff like that

Ah, but the sequel came out in '89, not that four years is any worth of salt in inventing years.

A good point, one that should always be considered when watching older movies that contemplate what inventions the future will hold. In this case though, it's more for fun. At least, that's what I percieved it as.

I'm just looking forward to the day we can communicate by phone but also see the person we're speaking to via the wonderment of the super internet highway!

Incidently, is there a thread on here that discusses Movie futures? Like futures that have now already happened? Like when the Predator visited LA in 1997 during the notorious drug wars and had his arse unrealistically kicked by an unfit, wheezing Danny Glover.

Yeah, gotta love those futures of Space 1999, 1984, 1997 of Terminator.

I'm looking forward to 12 years time tho... The 37th anniversary of Blade Runner downloaded straight to your brain to commemorate the year it's set in.

I love Strange Days. Its set in 1999, which is four years after it was actually made yet invisioned the not too distant future as a time where we'd all be able to buy people's memories that had been transferred to a mini disc from the black market. Now I had a mini disc player in 1999 and it could barely hold around 80 mins of music. Did they really think technology would advance that quickly???

In 8 years I'll be 24.

I think up until that point I'll record my favourite film list every month to see how it changes. Should be interesting to look back in 8 years and see some of my old choices.
