Pick all of the dystopias you found interesting and reasonably well-drawn. The first round is multiple choice.

IMDb shows many titles for A Boy and His Dog. But the only sci-fi one was released in 1975.
Metropolis has been remade a couple of times, but I won't specify a specific release considering the formats are so wildly varying and they are all pretty well done.
I will remind viewers that this is best DYSTOPIA, not best movie. I know Serenity has a lot of fans, but try to judge the background society. ;)

Hmm, I think I jumped the gun there. Can I take back a vote? While The World, the Flesh and the Devil is a great movie, I'm not sure it qualifies as a dystopia, it's more post-apocalyptic.

close enough. I had to look that one up so it is post- enough to qualify by my standards.

I really, really hated A Boy and His Dog.

I did indeed vote for Serenity, but I swear it was for the dystopia. It is, to me, much more plausible than dystopias where everyone's at the same level.
