What The Future Looks Like According To Movies

A lot of our imagination of the future comes from sci-fi movies — Minority Report, Blade Runner, etc. — so Eclectic Method created an awesome music video where they mixed their music with scenes from sci-fi movies that talk about the future. It's a little bit hypnotic.

The Future is a giant supercut of all your favourite sci-fi movies, here's Eclectic Method explaining the video:

Eclectic Method has supercut some of our favourite scenes from movies that turn a predictive eye to the future. Blade Runner's Megacities alongside A.I.'s flooded New York and Idiocracy's run down shanty towns. Some technology predictions in these films have already proven to be accurate and some are still a ways off — or not! … cameras on every corner, oil shortages, massive cultural uprisings in the middle east, retinal scans, X-Rays, flying cars and hoverboards, hybrid humans, robots, A.I., teleportation and so on. Who really watches Sci-Fi for the plot anyway, you wanna see the goodness condensed.

It's true. For sci-fi movies, I care just as much about the futuristic world they create as the story being told. What's your favourite sci-fi movie future? [Eclectic Method via Laughing Squid]

    My favourite futures haven't been filmed yet they're still between the pages but if I have to choose a movie/s it would have to be the "Aliens" universe, sans aliens of course. Just seems more realistically advanced than most of the others. Is it sad that I recognised most if not all the movies sampled here?
