A Sound of Thunder (2005) (part 4 of 13)
Next up is an aerial daytime view of downtown Chicago and the lake. A not-terribly-convincing CGI aircraft (which reminds me of the Cheyenne dropship) floats into the scene. Wow, it must be the future! Look at the flying cars! Well, flying car, at least.
Back on street level, the fakey CGI cars are busily zipping along. The next two customers for Time Safari, dressed to the nines in resplendent 1940s suits (complete with fedoras) walk along and exchange stilted dialog. I have a theory about the Big Band Era clothing. With all the tattoos and piercings we’re seeing these days, maybe the only way to be shocking by 2055 is to be well-attired and utterly presentable! It’ll be hip to be square again!
I just might be cool if I live until 2055.
