The future is always neon.
If there’s anything that films set in the future always seem to have in common, it’s that there’s a lot of neon. In fact, the only futuristic films that aren’t full of neon are those films that take place after an atomic war, where everyone’s living in the desert and driving around on motorcycles. But even those films often seem to end with the promise that, once society is up and running again, we’ll get a lot of neon.
Personally, I’m hoping that I’ll spend my retirement years in a hot pink house with neon walls.
The other thing that the future always seems to have is a divide between the decadent rich and the rebellious lower classes, the majority of whom seem to spend a lot of time wandering down red hallways. Maybe one reason why everyone in the future always seems to be fighting is because there’s so much red around. Maybe if they used blue neon, everyone would calm down and accept their social status.
Who knows? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. I imagine it should be the future in another two years or so.
Until then, enjoy!
