On the one hand, detention is a lot less awful in 2013. On the other, we've totally lost our ability to connect with real people or overcome the limitations of our identities by prolonged and probing conversation, however juvenile. Also, nobody knows who Barry Manilow is anymore or why he needs his clothes back so badly. Now that we think about it, the weirdest thing about old sci-fi movies is the fact that despite all those gadgets, people still do things by taking action in time and space. Guess they got that one wrong.
