Pretty sure HD internet versions are out (itunes or whatnot), maybe not retail bluray. But yeah it is gettable in good quality now for anyone who is desperate to see, you may have to import/download though.


Downloading is the ace up my sleeves when I decide I would rather rent, bills and groceries paid for... cause then where would I watch my DVD's??? xD


my favorites were the '80s ripoffs of The Road Warrior

2020 Texas Gladiators, Endgame, Warriors of the Wasteland,Wheels of Fire, and others

Also enjoyed Turkey Shoot, a.k.a.  Escape 2000


I like Distopian films with action, explosions, babes and ninja skill fighting and all that jazz. Regardless in it remake or original. :D

I guess 2019: AFTER THE FALL OF NEW YORK and THE NEW BARBARIANS deserve a mention. TeddyR
Here's one to look forward to.

Now that is what I am talking about Visuals! aka modern essentials like youtube.

Collossus: The Forbin Project was quite interesting


Yep! on another note, how could I forget this?! Beyond The Black Rainbow


Is beyond the black rainbow about a girl trapped in this weird place? I think the director had an interesting formula for inspiration for this. And I am pretty sure I have heard off the Forbin project.

And any found footage found in the wreckage of any Pretoria laundry that I happen to deliver my underpants to.....  Wink TongueOut TeddyR


Trevor's underwear! Whats makes this forum home! xD

The first two Mad Max movies were great, then there's Rollerblade Warriors, Hell Comes To Frogtown, Damnation Alley, Phoenix The Warrior, Creepozoids, Crash and Burn, Hybrid, Robot Jox, and probably a dozen others I can't remember right now  Smile


Some that come to mind: Children of Men, 1984, Blade Runner, Soylent Green, The Omega Man, Planet of the Apes (1968), Equilibrium, 12 Monkeys, Escape From New York, A Clockwork Orange, Brazil, The Handmaid's Tale, THX-1138, V For Vendetta

Logan's Run is pretty much a Dysptopian future disguised as utopian.


I am thinking off a DVD buying binge now :)

BRAZIL is my favorite. The movie adaptation of 1984 was very good also.


Have you seen this? Also Metropia (2009)


ZERO THEOREM is not out in the US until September, I think. I'll probably have to wait until DVD, though. METROPIA is on my to see list.


Okay for one. My favorite teacher once showed us Brazil in class one day and two. I though you guys meant "Metropolis" About female robots and I was like "They remade it?" Considering I have only ever seen the black and white silent version. I actually got exited xD But Metropia is now another DVD I want looking it up on google.


Actually METROPOLIS (1927) should go on my favorite dystopian film list too.


Been one off my favorite films since I was a little girl. :) My parents still own it on VHS.

+1 for:

Logan's Run - I love the original movie, and have the as-yet-unwatched TV series waiting

Equilibrium - I have shown this to at least three guys who have said, 'if you were a chick, I would kiss you right now!'  Not exactly the reaction I was looking for, but a sure testament to its impact.

Soylent Green

The Omega Man

and may I add:

Zardoz - both dystopian and utopian at the same time.
The Ultimate Warrior - I saw this Yul Brynner movie as a kid.  Still enjoy it.
The Underworld movies
Aeon Flux - the Charlize Theron version which I found surprisingly good.
The Time Machine - both the original and the Guy Pearce / Samantha Mumba remake

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
