Episode #47 of the Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind podcast sees Dan Collacott joined by Richard Roth and Denis-Jose Francois as the trio look towards depctions of the future in film that - thankfully - did not actually come to pass.
Predictions of our future usually tend to be split between societies that run on a level of technology we can only dream of and societies trying to adapt to a bleak and uninspired future devoid of hope. While at times striving to celebrate both visions, this episode explores three movies that delve into the more bleak aspects of what may lie ahead for us all. And while the worst of it may not yet have come to pass for the films selected, and while the films discussed may seem like light years away from our current lives, the team explore a series of worrying parallels that highlights the science within the fiction.
