    Maybe not quality wise, but the one I enjoyed the most first time viewing was The Matrix.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I like some of the films on the list, but also, does "Planet Of The Apes" with Charlton Heston count?

    I just watched "1984" a few weeks ago and I was pretty impressed with how well the novel translated to film. I loved Richard Burton as O'Brien. I would have to say I'm partial to "A Clockwork Orange" though. I love Stanley Kubrick's work and it's amazing how relevant this film can actually be.

    The 1990 film, "The Handmaid's Tale" (based upon the novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood, published in 1985 and one of the best dystopian works of literature ever written, in my opinion).

    Blade Runner is hard to beat for pure visual design and atmosphere as well as being just awesome sci-fi.

    V for Vendetta made you think a little more about where things are headed.

    For me, it has to be "Rollerball."

    Simply because it was so prophetic in so many ways. And we are now there.

    Corporations running the world. Corporate wars for profit. Bloodsport as the biggest worldwide form of entertainment. Freedoms being taken away, ostensibly for our safety or comfort. More and more decisions being made for the masses. Massive priveliges bestowed upon the conformist or necessary advertisements for a prescribed way of life. Half the population drugged out of their minds on pharmaceuticals that numb, not enhance feeling.

    The list goes on.

    But the worst thing about it all? There are a lot of "Moonpies" out there. People who fall for the propaganda, buy wholeheartedly into the way it is, can't see the wrong that is being done, and ultimately fall victim to it.

    If you haven't seen it in a few years, I recommend watching it again. It may take on a whole new meaning.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    Bladerunner every time. 1984 is a worthy second. Clockwork Orange was over rated IMO.

    EDIT: Just saw Battle Royale on the list, awesome movie.

    Mila Kunis is possibly the dumbest person I have ever heard speak, and that is coming from a fellow countryman and saying a lot. How the hell she ended up in such a spiritually cool movie is beyond me.

    On The Beach (1959) with Gregory Peck is a good one. Good book too. Maybe not exactly dystopia but more post apocolyptic.

    Read the book first (Neville Shute) and then see the film.
