where do you think they get all these ideas? movies aren't predicting the future, they're writing it.
@Swagnamite, movies expose pre-written books. Rod Serling revealed what he learned in The Twilight Zone, George Orwell revealed what he learned in 1984. They weren't predictions, they were leaks.
@Swagnamite, Desensitizing the public to ideas. Why do you think there are so many alien movies?
@Swagnamite, watch out of the shadows- the documentary
@Swagnamite, I forgot to mention Brave New World
Because 1984 wasn't bad enough, now were moving into dystopian films?
@ThePandaPool , we were always going to live in a dystopia, because human nature makes real utopias impossible. There will never be a society that doesn't have at least one big flaw.
@Your Waifu, government is like a computer. Let it run to long and it'll get all glitchy slow and corrupt. Just needs a reboot now and then
@voided sanity, that's a perfect analogy, unless you're talking about certain cyberpunk dystopias where it's more of a description than an analogy.
@ThePandaPool , it's more "Brave New World" than "1984"
@Your Waifu, thank you for the complement. And yeah we are getting uncomfortably close from going from analogy to reality
@Your Waifu, the computer analogy is pretty much a synopsis of Psycho-Pass
@Sexy Homunculus, kinda-ish? I want to argue on that a bit, but as I'm sure you know that's not something we can really talk about without spoiling it for people who haven't seen it.
@ThePandaPool , I heard Apple is changing its name to sky net
@Your Waifu, utopia, from utopos, a place that cannot be
And in Robocop 2 Detroit went bankrupt.
That actually happened in 2013.
Pepperidge farm remembers...
Hey, remember The Purge movies, when poor people were dying and the ultra rich hid out in reinforced bunkers to avoid it?!
I’d buy that for a dollar! *laughs hysterically*
Looking forward to 2021's Hunger Games
