    "The Matrix collection is a collection of the 4 Matrix movies. They are the story of Neo who is a office worker who figures out the world is a lie and he can break free. The first movie is excellent but sadly each one after that gets a little worse. That said, it still fits the topic."

    "The special effects are top notch, even better than by today's standards, in my opinion. It had a great story but it was so boring and slow. It could have been better if they cut out some scenes and did a better job with pacing."

    "Growing up I never realized just how dystopian this film was. To me it was just a cool scifi setting. It's only when you get older you start to recognize the elements of corporate malfeasance, government authoritarianism, and the collapsing economy that shapes the world Robocop is set in."

    "Metropolis is a classic. It was made in 1927 but set in 2026. It is a silent film but it is very impactful. It has been very influential on the genre of science fiction ever since its release."

    "I would not consider Dark City to be dystopian. It is more of a brooding anti-hero movie, similar to The Crow. If you liked the Crow I think you would enjoy this movie, but I still would not consider it to be dystopian."
