Donnie Darko is one of those movies I watched and rewatched endlessly during university. The small, but bold, tale of a troubled young man saving his family and friends spoke to me in ways I don't quite recall 15 years later. I just know I loved it. However, rewatching the director's cut of the film (released on DVD in 2004), I found that connection much less potent.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
