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.

I say we take off and nuke the entire movie from orbit.

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.

Mark teaches at Doane College, a liberal arts college in Crete, Nebraska. Most of his teaching involves computer science, but Mark also occasionally teaches mathematics and the history of science; he has also been known to offer three week courses on the worst movies ever made. Mark's bad movie obsession was kindled in the early 1980s by the Medved brothers, then fanned to full flame by late-night showings of Plan 9 from Outer Space. Who could have predicted the long term effects of satin-pajama-clad, mincing alien menace? Mark's other interests include homebrew beer and wine, and practicing and teaching martial arts.
