  • Future Medicine in the Movies - an infographic

  • 2084
    "In the year 2084, society is slowly being crushed into conformity by an all-powerful computer.
    But one man is surprisingly impervious to the malevolent machine’s relentless conditioning.

    "In the real world, people often have trouble discerning whether a demonstration is a march, a protest, or a riot. The terms used used often depend on which side you sympathize with more. In the movies, there's no reason not to go all out, with crowds, violence on both sides, guns and explosions, and even deaths. A movie riot is rarely the case of "less is more." The most affecting riot scenes are quite over-the-top, even when they are about real events."
