But wait... Aliens is set in the future, so will our attitudes in the future, which will then be the ‘now’, be outdated by the standards of what will then be the distant past that folks of the past had assumed of the future?Yep it's everywhere now.
Flipping through my Sky Movies Film Guide and planner a couple of days ago I noticed once again that they were showing "Aliens - Director's Cut" from 1986. In the info text box was something along the lines of "Contains outdated language and attitudes which some may find offensive".
As a society we truly are fucked.
Or will we look back and say “We were right to assume that in the future we would still be right about our assumptions of past wrongness in the future”?
