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.

I was thinking about the date the Terminator is sent back, which is 2027. I guess there was some Millenial Fever going on about 1997 although why they picked that particular year I have no idea.

surely there must be an old movie that was set in 2020? that year has such an iconic 'futuristic' ring to it...

Maybe that was from one of the later sequels.  They changed the date a few times I believe.

FRANKENSTEIN 1970 looks a lot like 1958.

    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:
