The genre of science-fiction is obsessed with a dystopian future world. Typically, in these film, technology shown is beyond the realm of imagination, the world is trying to survive a deadly virus or an evil technological genius. In short, the future looks bleak. Though some of the movies are bang on with their future depiction and profess technology that either inspires people or is a reflection of a future want. But then there are some movies which are way off target. Here is the list of sci-fi movies that got the future wrong:
12. Timecop (1994)
‘Timecop’ was a huge hit and the only reason for that was Jean-Claude Van Damme’s action sequences and the flashing technology. The movie used time traveling like a subway. Van Damme kept traveling into the past and back to the present with a single touch button. The technology or the hypothesis of the time traveling machine was non existent just like the story line of the movie. The movie was set in 2004 and had a exclusive time traveling machine and here we are in 2017 and we still haven’t figured out time traveling. A bad assumption.
11. Frankenstein (1931)
‘Frankenstein’ had proposed that in the near future we would be able to bring people back from the dead. It has taken ages but we have only come as close as organ transplantation. But we still haven’t figured out a way to make a person alive again. Also, there were some machines that could calibrate a human body and it was effectively used in the movie. Such an equipment has never been invented till date. Even though the proposition seemed huge and uncertain, there were people who believed that it would be possible in the near future. We have come very far since then and we still don’t have an answer. A huge miscalculation.
