Don’t Take the Technology Too Seriously

Science fiction is not meant for you to dig in deep and find meaning behind every concept it introduces. These movies are meant for sheer entertainment that is quite different from other movie genres. The only difference between sci-fi and other movie genres is simply the out of the box concepts it brings in. While it is true that sci-fi has predicted many of the technologies we use today, like cell phones, self-driving cars, and video chatting, it’s probably a good thing that a lot of the wild technology we see in sci-fi does not exist in the real world.

These movies’ stories and ideas are beyond our imagination, and that’s the major takeaways of these movies. Enjoy the sci-fi flick for unwavering entertainment rather than digging deep into its concept and finding it dumb at the end. It would be so heartbreaking to understand that the sci-fi movie that you enjoyed after a long time was utterly senseless. Some of the technologies we see in sci-fi movies would be downright bad ideas. Seriously, flying cars? The risk alone would be enough to skyrocket everyone’s insurance premiums. No thanks. It is one technology that will probably stay a fantasy.
