"The future is now"... too bad it isn't

I just caught last year's released "The Time Machine" on DirecTV earlier today and in one scene, our time traveller arrives in the year 2030 where it seems everyone was riding bikes. An electronic billboard displayed an ad proclaiming that "The future is now". It seemed like such a great vision until you get to the next scene in the movie which occurs 7 years afterwards where you find out that Man has accidently blown the moon out of orbit in an attempt to build a colony. |8^)

I quite enjoyed that movie. It deviated quite a bit from the short, but still very entertaining nonetheless. Then again I am a total sci-fi geek.
