10 Movies From The 90s That Were Eerily Accurate About The Future

- Page 1

Nowadays when we watch our favorite movies from the 90s, not only do they induce nostalgia, we also notice that they have made many assumptions about the world in which we live today.

Looking back at them, many of the predictions of how things would turn out were way off, and hilariously so. However, there were a few occasions when a movie's take on the future turned out to be eerily accurate.

Here are 10 movies that accurately predicted things that actually took place in the years that followed:

1. The Truman Show (1998)


When The Truman Show with Jim Carrey hit the big screen in 1998, everyone was simultaneously weirded out and fascinated by the concept of someone's entire life being a television show. Today, reality TV is no longer a fantasy, and some of the world's most popular celebrities have stemmed from such shows.

2. You've Got Mail (1998)

Hooked on Houses

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks play star-crossed lovers who find themselves caught up in an online romance. At that point in time, online dating was something that not many (if any) people did. Almost two decades later, Nora Ephron's vision actually became an accepted thing in our society, and most people can say that they have tried online dating at least once.

3. Face/Off

Although entertaining, we can all admit that we found it a tad bit ridiculous that Nicholas Cage and John Travolta's characters switched faces via a surgical transplant. We could've never imagined that just 13 years after the movie was released, a team of 30 Spanish doctors performed the world's first successful face transplant.

4. The Net (1995)

Trivia Happy

Sandra Bullock takes on the role of a computer programmer, who did something almost unheard of at the time: she ordered a pizza online. Oh, and no, she didn't use a credit card to pay, she paid with cash.

5. Super Mario Bros. (1993)

The movie based on the adventures of the famous animated plumber, Mario and his brother, Luigi, was without a doubt absurd, but there's one eerie scene that became reality eight years later: the destruction of the World Trade Centre.

The scene, which takes place near the end of the film, shows the human world merging with the Koopa world marked by the fall of the twin towers in the same order that they were attacked in 2001.

Scarily enough, Super Mario Bros. wasn't the only film to foreshadow 9/11...
