What do you think the year 2021 will be like?

Subject: Re: 2021 Predictions

Written By: batfan2005 on 07/20/20 at 7:46 pm

It will be the best year for movies as many 2020 films will push back their release dates into 2021. But at the same time a lot of films might get pushed to 2022. The Batman is one I'm worried about. I also think the Coronavirus will be still around, but won't spread as fast and won't be deadly as in 2020. Tokyo might hold the summer Olympics, but it will have little to no fans attending, like the resumed baseball season now. As for who will be president, it might still be Donald Trump.

Late 2010s carryovers like minimalist trap and downbeat pop, along with the 80s/disco-influenced synthpop that got traction this year, will probably still be popular in 2021. I believe we'll see a musical shift by late 2021/early 2022 (idk what it'll be, but I know that the current state of pop music can't last for long).

I'm actually praying this will happen. The idea of being a musician is not only to entertain, but also to be creative when creating a song. Can't keep looking to the past forever. I hope we will see big changes in 2021. And I hope they are good changes.

Oh please I sure hope not. Eight years of him would be a recipe for disaster. We need a true leader. One who'll do something about this pandemic. And care about the true serious issues, like the environment. (Anyway, that's the last I'm gonna say about this; I'll save my other rants/venting for the thread(s) in the political section.) :-X

Chinese Elvis will finally surface and take the world by storm, causing the most massive shift in pop culture since the Beatles first landed in New York in 1964. A wave of similar artists and musical groups out of China will follow, not unlike the British Invasion of the mid 1960's. One by one they will drive nails into the coffin of Western culture (which has been on the decline for the last decade or so) as China increasingly dominates the world not only economically but culturally as well.

I had a professor in the 2000s who said, half joking and half serious, that China, if it continues to rise might become a cultural powerhouse, with a "Chinese Invasion" like the British Invasion.

The thing is China hasn't been a cultural powerhouse in the world despite its economic rise. Look at Britain in the 19th century: as its empire rose, it was also a leader in culture. Same with the U.S. But China is so culturally inward it seems to have difficulties with creating global entertainment like through authors, movies, TV series, video games etc. Japan is great at this and Korea's good too, but China not so much.

If they want to be a real global power, they need to do more than be a manufacturing powerhouse. People don't live by bread alone, as they say, but also by ideas. A top global power needs ideas and culture that draw the world to it.

It is kind of early to make predictions for 2021 because there are still 6 months to go for this year and the way this year is going, who knows what is going to happen. But, anyway here are my predictions.

-Biden will be become president on January 20th.
-The Dems will take back the Senate and keep the House.
-The new Voting Rights bill will be signed into law and named after John Lewis.
-The Edmund Pettus Bridge will be renamed after John Lewis (if not before the end of this year).
-Universal health care will become law (finally).
-Biden will name 2 Supreme Justices (replacing Ginsberg & Thomas).
-Criminal charges will be filed against: Donald Trump (if he is still alive), Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Eric Trump, Bill Barr, and several more people in this administration. 
-"Count Vlad" will lose support because the U.S. will FINALLY hold him accountable for his misdeeds in the past 4 years, and the way he has been dealing with the coranavirus, there will be a coup (that could be successful).
-Netanyahu's plan to bury his indictment fails and he will be charged with corruption.


That's what I have SO FAR. Who know, I may have more in the next 6 months. It depends on what my E.S.P. tells me.

Yes, I do. Tying health insurance to employment isn't working right now when so many people are unemployed. There are more progressive Dems in the House and they will pass universal health care-because it is NEEDED! (Of course it has been needed forever but that is another issue.) And if the Dems take the Senate, it will pass and Joe Biden will sign it into law.

I think it's very rare for a president to not get a second term. Even George Bush who was clearly a horrible president got voted in the second time. So I can't really see Trump losing since his popularity ratings were quite high before the pandemic started. I do believe it will be a close call though. Even closer than the last election and Biden will win by percentage of popular vote. But Trump will still manage to take the crown. Maybe that will stir up anger and more political division. We'll see.

Well, I completely disagree for many reasons:

1) Trump DID NOT have high popularity ratings before the pandemic started. His approval rating had remained fairly steady since his inauguration (around 41-45%). Now, his approval rating is around 37-41%.

2) It would be unprecedented for an incumbent president with approval ratings around 37-41% to get re-elected. Presidents Jimmy Carter in 1980 and George H.W. Bush in 1992 had similar approvals to Trump and they both LOST DECISIVELY.

3) So far polling has shown that Biden has a wide lead over Trump (at around 8-10%) and the dynamics of the race and the pandemic aren't going to change much by November.

4) Biden has a much higher polling average lead over Trump than Hillary did or any presidential candidate since Bill Clinton in 1996 (who won re-election easily).

5) George W. Bush was re-elected in 2004 mainly due to the goodwill that many Americans had after 9/11. Also, Bush united the country after 9/11. The Iraq War didn't become unpopular among Americans until 2006. Trump is not a unifying leader, about 50% of the country hates his guts and 67% of Americans DISAPPROVE of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Additionally, John Kerry was probably not the best challenger that the Democrats could have nominated against Bush in '04.

George H.W. Bush & Jimmy Carter both only had one term.

Trumps ratings were not that high before the pandemic. Yes, they were high among Republicans but people who call themselves Republicans is shrinking. He lost the popular vote in 2016 by over 3 million votes and he never gained any new supporters in the past 4 years. In fact, he has lost supporters. Of course there is a possibility that he COULD win by means of the Electoral College like he did 4 years ago because of interference by foreign players and GOP operatives suppressing votes.

There is another factor which sounds morbid but it is a fact. A lot of people who would probably have voted for Trump have died or is dying of Covid. The biggest cases are in states that support Trump-Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, & Arizona. And the death toll will only be going up.

I hope so but I doubt it. My reasons are:

1) Biden has said that he wants to implement a public option but a public option is NOT universal healthcare.

2) Even if Democrats do gain control of the Senate, passing universal healthcare will be difficult because:
    *The filibuster. Senate Republicans are just going to filibuster everything. Biden and some Senate Democrats have shown some openness to getting rid of the filibuster if Republicans don't cooperate but will they actually do it? Honestly, Democrats are pretty weak at using power when they have it. Also, many Democrats especially moderate Democratic senators are still overly-concerned about being "bipartisan" and "reaching across the aisle".

    *The number of seats that Democrats gain. If Democrats only gain a slim majority (50-52 seats), I highly doubt that universal healthcare will be passed. If Democrats gain 53-55 seats, then I would be more optimistic but still not confident that universal healthcare will be passed. I don't think that Democrats will gain more than 55 Senate seats, even if this year is a huge blue wave year.

I hope that I'm wrong though. This country really does need a single-payer, universal healthcare system.

1) I do know that Biden said that he wanted a public option. However, he has been known to change his mind and I think he will change his mind on this one.

2) There is a wildcard in your argument about Repubs filibuster everything-Moscow Mitch. That is his game plan. I HOPE with every fiber of my being that he is voted out. If he is still in the Senate come January, yeah, he will filibuster EVERYTHING. But, if he is voted out, who knows. The remaining GOP senators may try to use his playbook but I don't think it will fly as well.

And I don't think it is going to be a blue wave. It is going to be a blue TSUNAMI!

I doubt that Mitch is going to lose his seat. I know that many Democrats think that Amy McGrath has a shot at taking him down but that's not happening. Unfortunately, Mitch is going to get re-elected.

Also, even if he miraculously does lose, and someone like Senator John Thune of South Dakota (the most likely successor to Mitch as Republican Senate Leader) takes over, Republicans would block most major bills that Biden and the Democrats would want to pass. Republican senators such as Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Marsha Blackburn, etc would absolutely filibuster Democratic-lead bills.

I saw on the news last night that masks won’t be required during the election. Because even if you’re violating executive order, you can’t be denied the right to vote.

We may have a lot of people scared to come to the polling place. Hopefully there are no problems voting absentee.

I for one do NOT want him serving another term. He seriously needs to be voted out.

Even though I don't care for Biden either, but that's the reason I'm voting for him. I was never a fan of Trump from the beginning. I wished the GOP could have come up if someone better. I was hoping for Jeb Bush myself, but he's considered too "liberal" by today's Republicans/alt-right standards. I also wish the Democrats could come up someone better. I didn't care for Hillary either.

Like in 2016, if enough people don't show up to vote thinking Biden will win anyway, the silent majority could show us up and reelect Trump.

Advocating banning objects that express people's honest opinion, arresting broadcasters regardless of freedom of the press, people being dragged out (no indication that a crime was committed), changing the Constitution to limit who can be president...very fascist leaning.

I'm just making honest predictions, not necessarily expressing my opinion.

None of this has to do with freedom of the press. It has to do with stopping objectively dangerous viewpoints (Trumpism, in this case), stripping it of a platform. Fox is not news; it's propaganda disguised as entertainment disguised as news.

Maybe I went a little too far with 8 and 9, but as I said, I'm simply making predictions, whether I agree with them or not. The first three are guaranteed to happen. 5 is likely to happen. 6 could happen. 7 is possible.

And "people being dragged out (no indication that a crime was committed)". Isn't trespassing a crime, especially if it's the White House?

These things won't happen because of something called the First Amendment to the Constitution.

Also, this is what it takes for the Constitution to be amended:


-Proposal by convention of the states, with ratification by state conventions. This method has never been used.
-Proposal by convention of the states, with ratification by state legislatures. This method has also never been used.
-Proposal by Congress, with ratification by state conventions. This method has been used one time.
-Proposal by Congress, with ratification by the state legislatures. This method was used for all current amendments except one.



Just because Washington is owned by one party (i.e. majority in the House & Senate plus the White House), that doesn't mean that they can just change the Constitution on a whim.

Yesterday my brother and I drove to Lincoln, NE (where we grew up) to visit our mom, and afterward we decided to stop at Duffy's Tavern, a downtown bar that has been a Lincoln institution since 1936 and where generations of college students have gone to hang out and watch live music. They followed all the masking and social distancing protocols and we sat outside in the beer garden.

And it worried me. Usually at 7 pm on a Saturday night the place is packed but there were less than 10 people there. One of the bartenders said that it starts filling up after around 10 pm but still it was apparent that their business right now is a tiny fraction of what it normally is and it seemed to me that they couldn't keep operating like that forever.

This isn't so much a prediction as it is a fear of mine, but my concern is that if this pandemic goes well into next year it could have a profound and lasting negative effect on our culture that might be irreversible. There are countless locally owned bars and restaurants and music venues nationwide that are in danger of disappearing forever (and quite a few already have), and these places are a big part of what give neighborhoods and cities their own identities and personalities.

I worry that if the pandemic situation isn't resolved soon, then local mom-and-pop establishments (except for places that offer take out, they seem to be doing all right) will be a thing of the past, relegated to the scrap heap of the 20th century. I worry that after all these places go out of business and their buildings lie vacant, some multinational conglomerate is going to buy them all up on the cheap and reopen them as soulless, cookie cutter Applebee's type establishments.

I'm especially worried about the local live music venues. They seem to be especially vulnerable to all of this, and I worry that iHeart Radio or Live Nation or Ticketmaster could buy them all up and basically shut out any artists who they feel are either too controversial or not commercially viable enough, similar to what they already do on commercial terrestrial radio.

I really hope I'm wrong about this and that this is all just a paranoid conspiracy of mine.  :-\\

Even with practically all festivals and events cancelled, it seems like there are more tourists than ever crowding this area.

Usually it’s a mass exodus on Labor Day and we get our area and our sanity back, but I don’t think that will happen this year. There’s no reason to. A lot of them are saying they’re staying. With more people either being paid to not work, being able to work remotely, and schools likely either closing or going remote... people can be anywhere and perform their duties.

Adding the closure of cinema, I guess we have to look forward to watch new releases at home on your pay-to-view television. Not to mention about how the production of the movies is going on?

Also the article mentioned the reason WB is delayed the Batman other movies, like Dune is proactive measures because they are anticipating another wave of Coronavirus outbreaks over the upcoming winter months that's even worse than before, combined with the flu season. Production could get halted at any time, so this gives them more room to work with so they don't end up missing the previous release date. I'm hoping for a chance they finish production and filming and can release it 2021 after all. I think WonderWoman was once delayed to 2021 but they were able to move it back up to Christmas Day.

Also with The Batman, it's not only the pandemic itself that's causing the delay, but supposedly Robert Pattison himself. Not just because he tested positive for COVID, but he was said to be uncooperative and failed to stay in shape during quarantine for the character. That movie plus the sequels might be in jeopardy, and the sequels might get cancelled altogether unless they recast the Batman like they did with the 1989-1990's series.

Also Jurassic World 3 got pushed back to 2022, so looks like it's going to be mainly movies originally scheduled for 2020 to be released in cinemas in 2021, like the new Ghostbusters, 007, FF9, Dune, etc. They may just release them straight to streaming.

With movie theaters on the brink (or beyond the brink) of extinction the time is right for the movie industry to reset and rid itself of this "Marvel Comics" mentality that has plagued it for decades now. People are approaching things in a new way now that 2020s culture is here to stay. If something doesn't change with all this money grubbing lack of creativity, movies are finished as an art form.

Even though the fans of Star Wars are still loyal to their cause, the general interest is fading with the continuing tales of the Star Wars saga. I was there for the first Star Wars film, and now all the others have just faded into one. The music is still great.

At first I thought you meant Ghostbusters 2 and I'm one of the oddballs that liked that one better than the original, but then by "last one" did you mean the remake in 2016? That one was a disaster. Nothing wrong with an all-female cast, just that it could have been casted better. I would have casted Anna Farris and/or Aubrey Plaza. Then there was the Saturday Night Fever dancing with the closing credits that just set the tone for the whole movie.

Also Indiana Jones. That one might be scrapped altogether otherwise it will probably suffer the same fate as Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I thought the 2010's were overdone with the Marvel/Avengers movies, but I've always been a Batman fan and I was looking forward to another reboot. The new Jurassic Park looked promising because it's crossing over the cast and characters of new and original. I also like the reboots/sequels of other 80's classics like Bill and Ted and the upcoming Top Gun. It seems fitting in a time of 80's nostalgia.

They are going the way of drive-in theaters. They were popular in the 1950's and then became a thing of the past, but they were still around, even starting to make a comeback during the pandemic. I started to not care for theater experience before the pandemic. You rush to make the showtime only to sit through more than 30 minutes of previews. You pretty much have to give up an entire afternoon or evening, and there's only a handful of films each year that's worth that trouble. Not to mention the price of tickets and if you buy snacks. I'm also the type that likes to be in control of when I can watch the movie, and can pause if I need to (ex: bathroom break).

Movie theaters were already on their last legs before the pandemic. That's why they won't survive. This is just the last nail in the coffin. And for all the reasons you stated. Going to the movie theater is now an expensive, inconvenient, time wasting  and often uncomfortable proposition. Not to mention rude, crude people who talk loudly on their phones, come in late, etc. It wasn't always this way, but that's what they deteriorated to.  Besides, we now live in an on-demand culture and nobody wants to submit to the timetable of the theater.

By the way, drive-ins don't have a snowball's chance in hell of making a comeback. It was a cute, semi-interesting novelty for the pandemic, but that's about it. As I have said on this forum time and again for all the people who think this and that thing are "coming back", once something becomes obsolete it NEVER comes back to the mainstream and into regular usage. Oh yes, little things may come back as "fads" for ten minutes, but are never really taken seriously and certainly  never absorbed back into the regular mainstream usage they once enjoyed before they became obsolete.

Biden probably has another 4 more years.

He WILL take office on Inauguration day. Whether he makes it through a full term or not, no one knows for sure. Age isn't everything. In fact, just the other night when he came out to give his acceptance speech, he jogged out onto the stage and spoke with energy.

The first half of 2021 will probably be just a continuation of 2020. Even if a vaccine for COVID-19 gets approved either this month or next, I think it would still take a while before governments start to remove restrictions on movement, face mask requirements, social distancing, etc.

The interesting thing to see is when we finally DO emerge from this nightmare of a pandemic. THAT is going to be the true "transition".  I guarantee you that no matter how fully we recover from the pandemic, you will be seeing articles like "Are We Really Out Of the Woods Yet?" and such. There will be people who don't believe it's over just like there are now people who think it's a hoax.  For at least a year after the pandemic is officially declared over you will see people (and organizations) with a foot in and a foot out. There will be a massive rush of people who will go back to large public gatherings, restaurants, etc, and there will be a similar amount who are hesitant. There will be a "divided culture" of sorts.

That is correct. There have been some people posting here like things will change like the flick of a switch because of the vaccine and that people will be running out to movie theaters, restaurants, etc in droves like it's the fall of the Berlin Wall all over again or something. It doesn't work that way. The vaccine is going to take a while to work and it's going to take the whole year for everybody to get the vaccine, and all kinds of mistakes will be made, delays will happen, etc, and that's not even including the rest of the world. Not to mention the people who won't get it for whatever their own reasons. There will be no "flicking of the switch", believe me.

2021 is mostly likely going to be a 2020 2.0 or 2020 Part II, rather than a brand new year. Several restrictions are likely going to be still in place throughout the year. The current recession might even become a depression. By summer 2021, the news would had already been talking about the third wave, while the Olympics (which was already postponed from 2020) are likely going to be held in reduced capacity compared to previous Olympic years.

I don't know if our country can handle being in lockdown and isolation past next spring or summer without having some kind of mass meltdown.

If this is indeed the case, then it is absolutely critical that the next administration address the mental health issues that are affecting us. I don't know what the answer is, but something needs to be done to help boost our morale.

Unless, of course, the powers that be want us to be angry and afraid and depressed (I have my own suspicions that they do, and I'm trying my damnedest to be happy just to spite them).

If this isn't resolved within the next 4-6 months, then people are going to start fighting for their right to party.
