2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Much like Back to the Future II, this film predicted what the year 2001 would look like and it actually wasn’t too far off. Some of the technology they thought of just came a little bit later on. On several occasions we see the characters using tablet computers, long before this technology was ever produced, and Hal 9000 was basically the first-ever Siri, Alexa, or Google Home. We just hope our versions can’t read lips, too.

    Nadream70 its definitely been proven that reality tv didn’t actualy become “mainstream” til the 2000’s. So yeah there’s been reality tv BEFORE truman but it didn’t become super relevant in our society til just after.

    it’s aslo fair to say that we indulge in reality tv just like the watchers of truman did because something like the real world was more like entertainment, but now we watch things like real house wives or kardashian whatever and we’re actually invested like we think we know these people, their our friends, ect. we buy their products, we make them famous on social media. Its a completely different realm you know? very interesting….
