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.

Considering the gush-fest that was Moana's critical reception (and rightly so) you might think the Honest Trailers team would find it hard to rip the piss out of Moana.

Thankfully they've found a way. Actually, they've found multiple ways.

One of the greatest feats of human migration in history was the colonisation of the vast Pacific Ocean by Polynesian peoples. They achieved it thanks to their sophisticated knowledge of positional astronomy and celestial navigation.

The Disney film Moana has drawn attention to these accomplishments and helped inform a new generation about the complexity of Indigenous astronomy.

The films the io9 team has picked as the best science fiction and genre films of 2016 are a very motley crew. This year we loved superheroes, animation, farting corpses, live action, talking animals, and more. These are films spanning different genres, disciplines, and themes, which experienced varied levels of success. Each is worthy of acknowledgment, though, so check out what we crowned the best of the best, and worst of the worst.

In movies, there's usually a moment where everything clicks. Where the image, emotion and sound meet in perfect harmony and no matter what happens before or after, you realise you are in love with this moment. The cinema of 2016 had plenty of these moments, and we picked our 16 favourites.

Normally when reviewing a movie, you come up with a healthy mix of positive and negative things to say about it. In the case of Disney's Moana, though, I'm really struggling to come up with the latter. It's just that wonderful.

Video: Moana is incredible -- and packed with some truly brilliant moments and amazing visuals.

Now the studio has released the full scene from the film to watch online.
