Class of 1984 (1982) - Mark Lester's eerily prediction of what our public indoctrination centers would turn into in 1984.



Class of 1999 (1990) - While a little more over the top.......it still made raise an eye brow.

I don't know about anybody else, but that's exactly how I dressed in the year 2000.

Escape from L.A. (1996) - Set in 2013. I wish it really happened to LA at this point.

Only a few more years before The Terminator joins this list. Starting to think robots might do a better job of things.
In Terminator 2, Judgement Day was supposed to happen in 1997.

Escape from New York was also 1997. 
So was Predator 2. 

I have no clue what it was about that year that caught people's attention.

My guess is that it was a year that was close enough to the current times (1990-1991) that it would still look fairly modern while also far enough to give some plausible deniability for certain plot or setting elements.

Same reason why the first Resident Evil game was set in 1998 even though it came out in 1996.

RE2 also is set in 1998 but it also came out that same year, it still might sorta count since that game takes place in September of 1998 but came out around January-February of that year.

I remember the first X-men moving taking place "in the near future".  Then the rest of them took place pretty much "now".

I guess when they said "near future" they must have meant something like "a couple weeks from now."

Not a movie- but a TV show-

SPACE: 1999 (1975)
Along with series regulars Martin Landau and Barbra Bain (both who had costarred in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ) featured cool guest stars like Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee!

WESTWORLD (1973) is set in 1983.
I seen this movie at the Strand in Paw Paw, Mi. with my school buddy Mike Grimm. I had the Famous Monsters mag with it featured on the cover.

^ I can't remember much about this film except Tom Arnold driving a minivan over cgi earthquake stuff.
Oh- and towards the end when somebody gives the bad guy ( I don't even recall wtf was going on) the " f**k you" finger, which I'm sure every 11 year old in the audience found endlessly funny.
I hate that movie.  Hatred

    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.
