The sequel of Back to the Future, Back to the Future II, stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Llloyd, and Lea Thompson. It won numerous awards and an Oscar nominee. The movie was released 1989 and to the younger generation now, it may seem like ancient history. The movie made some, what you may call crazy, “predictions” of the technological advances for the years ahead.
Back to the Future II was based around the year 2015. The technology is what you may call out of reach for the next four years coming. There was inventions such as, flying cars, power laced sneakers, and self-drying clothing. Though these have a less likely chance of being successfully invented in the next four years, there may be a few “predictions” that may come true.
In the movie, two younger boys complained about having to use their hands while playing video games. The “prediction” was children were going to be less active than ever before. All the technology we have now is amazing, but little by little it’s making us less “mobile”.
I do believe that one day we will have flying cars and shoes that automatically tie themselves, but right now it seems farther away than what it seemed in 1989. This movie makes us think about our futurist movies and “predictions” that we make. Unlike this movie, do you think our predictions will come true?
