Minority Report

Well, I’m not sure if you’ve seen Minority Report because it was released in 2002 and it was directed by Steven Spielberg.

The movie takes place in the year 2054 when criminals are caught even before they commit a crime. This can be done because of the advancement in technology and the use of the 3 psychics. It so happened that one of the psychics predicted that one of the officers in the special unit (Tom Cruise) will commit a murder and he sets out to prove his innocence.

So we watched this movie during NCT tutorial but not the whole movie though, just parts of it. It’s been a long time since I watched a movie in class, the last time was in secondary school I think?

Anyway about the movie, it’s very futuristic, kinda cool and scary at the same time to see how advanced technology can potentially be, based on what I saw e.g. the spider robots,

the cars driving on the sides of buildings and the

advertisements that targeted specifically at the individual just by scanning their eyes.


Will the world really become like this 50 years down the road? I like it the way it is now though, instead of relying fully on technology. I can’t deny that technology has helped us in many ways. One of which is through instant messenger which helps us to communicate with people who are geographically separated from us.

Imagine the cartoon characters on the cereal boxes becoming animated (there’s a part of it in the movie). Wow, then there’ll be more opportunities to advertise and reach out to the target market based on a database of stored user information. Yes, that would also mean, you can be easily tracked down.

Okay, I’m done! Good night! 🙂
