HAPPY BACK TO THE FUTURE DAY!

The day has come when Marty and Doc time-travelled into the future. Have you seen Jaws 19 yet?

1. Video calling

With FaceTime and Skype, speaking to people why you can see them is now an everyday occurrence, even on your phone.

2. Paying for things with your fingerprint

Well, look at your phone. Don’t you keep your daughter or son from accidentally phoning your boss by protecting it with a thumbprint-activated lock?

3. Hoverboards

Okay, okay, so we don’t have actual skateboards that hover in the air. But that plonker who works downstairs from you who wheels himself to Pret – he’s using what has been dubbed a hoverboard.

4. Watching loads of TV channels at the same time

If you’re a sports fan and you have a fancy telly, then it’s possible to do this, especially in the States.

5. Franchise dominance

We joked above about the eighteenth Jaws sequel and while that hasn’t come to pass (thankfully), you only have to look at these very pages to see how many sequels and resuscitations of known films dominate the cinema schedules. But let’s please stay away from Spielberg’s shark classic..?
