The best exploitation films try. Beyond slashing up coeds or destroying major metropolitan areas or engaging in some salacious torture porn, a good exploitation flick is earnestly trying to be more. The guys who made Addio Zio Tom (1971) were trying to confront America's sustained systemic abuse of black bodies. The people behind Rape Squad (1974) were trying to confront modern rape culture. When Toho made the original Godzilla (Gojira) in 1954 it wasn't just a movie about a giant lizard destroying Tokyo. Gojira was about the horrors of nuclear warfare.

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.
