As entertaining as the sci-fi from these decades often was, it never fails to amaze me how inaccurate and often bizarre their vision of a future society was. I watched Logan's Run again the other night, and couldn't help but wonder why the makers imagined people would be wearing such ridiculous and impractical clothing; short dresses made from wisps of gaudy-coloured material, jumpsuits and extravagant suits of authority. Of course Logan's Run wasn't the only culprit. It seems, then, that futurism in the eyes of these people had a duty to be as outrageous and different from their own time as possible, merely to stand out as so. Practicality, reason, natural progression and logic seemed very much to take a back seat, in favour of fantastical ideas and strange clothing. But what about current visions of the future? Are they really any better, or do we just imagine/hope they are? Will people 40/50/60 years from now be watching/reading today's sci-fi and be asking the same question?
