    "This is one of the best Stanley Kubrick movies and also one of the best dystopias ever depicted in film. It's based on the book by Anthony Burgess and like the book its pretty disturbing. But not without reason. The movie digs deep into crime, punishment, and society. I won't say more for fear of giving something away. Just see it."

    "I love Akira because it combines several cool genres in the movie. It has a person with psychic powers, action, and it is post apocalyptic which is always cool because it makes it a survival movie as well. I love the characters and the mysteries unraveled about Akira. It was quite the interesting tale."

    "The concept of this movie sounds really cool and the plot leaves a lot to the imagination. I would love to see how the aliens go about their uprising and get back at the humans."

    "This one doesn't even need any mentioning. Gattaca is simply one of the most memorable sci-fi stories of the modern age and we are actually living in that age now. The idea of genetic enhancement in the story is something that is already becoming available in the real world. This is a very good story to watch because it makes people think about the ethics or the moral implications of being able to always achieve perfection to a genetic level. It's a great show that will make you think twice about what you think is "true progress" for humanity."

    "Although this is an older movie, I've heard people raving and saying that I had to watch it. So I finally did, and it's an interesting enough sci-fi movie. It isn't a bad way to spend a few hours. I would not call this an award winning movie, but it is interesting enough that I could watch it more than once. The period the movie was made is blatantly clear and its interesting to see just how far movies have come since this. "

    "Nowadays, we hear about the dangers that lie ahead from climate change nearly every day. But "The Day After Tomorrow," on that same topic, was released 14 years ago, making it a pioneer on spreading public awareness on this issue. There are many dystopian films, but I place this one on my top 10 list."
