    Which movie, dystopian or not, has been or will be the most accurate?

    My vote? Demolition Man. Between the millennials and the chains taking over.,,

      I'd say Back to the Future, because, like, it was the future and they came back from it.

      But if we keep time travel out of it, I'd go with Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone as an apocalyptic view where everything sucks. Everything.

          It sure seems like 1984 with a little Fahrenheit 451 thrown in might be right around the corner.

              regardless of the time period or movie that tried to portray the future, I am still waiting on all the cool clothes they thought we'd be wearing by now
