Chairman of the bored
It wasn't a great movie, but I loved the opening line of "Tomorrowland" where George Clooney says "the future isn't what it used to be."
What is it about retro-futurism that's so appealing? Frequently, the futurists of the past got the technology kind of right, but where they nearly always missed the mark was when it comes to the social aspects. So while they might somewhat accurately portend the future by showing folks wearing Dick Tracy tv watches, they also tended to depict the 'little woman' at home preparing instantly rehydrated dinners for their nuclear families.
What do you dig about retro-futurism? Can someone explain why the ideas of domed cities were so prevalent in the past? And where is my monorail?
