So I have just recently watched the movie Minority Report with Tom Cruise and I thought about how much of that future can come true? What do you think is possible and can call of that be done by 2054? I think it is possible to do all of the computers that they show in the movie by 2030 but I am unsure about the rest.

Besides, some of the film was suprisingly accurate:
Minority Report accurate - Google Search

The advertising stuff, maybe. The pre-crime mularky, definitely not. Anything with psychics is fake.

I'd like to re-iterate my objection to the psychic stuff. Even good science fiction is tainted by excessive reliance on non-physical psychic ability (I'm looking at you Isaac Asimov). Every scientific discovery makes the world less reliant and believing in magic.

Sorry, I just can't get past a science fiction movie that relies on psychics for major plot points.
