go ahead then, 2019. I have been waiting for you ever since I saw ”Blade runner” so now may you all deliver. Flying cars are maybe asking too much but I require neon, skyscrapers and sexy smoking replikanter.
Artificial intelligence is unfortunately not like Sean Young in 2019 and if it did, it would still not be allowed to smoke on the terraces. I may console myself with the fact that the ancient tv spelsföretaget Atari – whose log is exposed extensively in Ridley Scott's classic, the giving out a new console in the spring and hopefully will make outdoor advertising.
in 2019, not only because it is the year when ”Blade runner” takes place. Lots of other movies in the science fiction and post-apocalyptic action also depicts the year that has just begun. In the seventies and eighties, many thought the writer that nuclear war would break out just in time for the turn of the millennium, so they chose to locate their post-disaster-tales to approximately 20 years later.
”Akira”, the most famous of 2019-the movie second after ”Blade runner”, is about the megacity of Neo-Tokyo, built out of war's ruins. Motorcycle gangs are fighting against each other and a telepathic essence rests in a kryotank in a stadium built for the 2020 olympic games. The 30-year-old mangafilmatiseringen did not predict much, except that the summer OLYMPICS are actually taking place in Tokyo next year.
Schwarzenegger-the adventure ”The running man”, where the united states has become a military dictatorship and criminals fighting for their lives in televised gladiatorial, is similar also not the real 2019. Reality tv is not as big as in the movie. It is much larger. So great that a reality-tv-star to become president of the united states.
are not more spot than previous decades. Human cloning has not become a billion dollar industry in Michael Bay's sci-fi dystopia ”The island”, where all the rich have copies of themselves in case they need organ donations. And the earth's population does not consist to 99% of the vampires in ”Daybreakers” where a plague turned everyone into blood-suckers and the few surviving humans are placed in a cold chamber and placed on the fluid. The synthetic blood that the vampires are trying to invent to solve the food crisis can soon become a reality.
The most pessimistic forecasts for 2019 are in the genre maxploitation (shameless Mad Max-plagiarism). In 1983, two Italian c-movies that are both on this calendar year. In ”2019: After the fall of New York”, mankind has lost the ability to reproduce after an atomic war between the superpowers of the ”pan american confederacy” and ”euroafroasiatiska union”. A solariebrun sleazerockare fighting against the radioactive rats to find the last fertile woman in New York's ruins.
by Enzo G Castellari, who made the Tarantino-favorite ”The inglorious bastards”, is equally depressing. The world has 2019 become one big desert (or rather, because of the film's minimal budget, a gravel quarry outside of Rome with pretty many trees) and the templars, a nihilist gaysekt, goes around with Beach Buggies and kill all they see – in addition to the vindbitne the hero (in a scene that is over-the-top to be Italian c-movie) imposes a anal intercourse.
”the World is dead. It raped itself”, says the templars in ”The new barbarians”. Probably it is exactly what we're doing by not listening to climate scientists. So please, 2019, forgive us our sins and to give us just enough, very dystopian romance.
