THINGS TO COME (Theatrical Release USA 1936)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

Things to Come—revolutionary 1936 film—becomes an interesting watch because it contains a series of prophecies about the future. It is a good concept and is told well, but it could improve on the presentation and can be boring at times. The acting is antiquated. Interesting anticipation of future events.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. The presentation matches its time of production, but it is an interesting movie to follow the predictions and to check off which were true and which may not have been true. The original story was written by H.G. Wells.
