Best dystopian movie
As I'm sure most of us are 40K players, I presume dystopian fiction would be popular amongst a lot of you? So, name your favourite movies! I don't see why it wouldn't be okay to talk about novels as well if anyone reads at all.
My personal favourite is Blade Runner. Cliche, I know, but it is a very good movie and actually in my top 5 of all time favourite movies. It pretty much captured my idea of a future dystopian society perfectly, which is why I am so fond of it.
The City of Lost Children and Delicatessen (both by Jean-Pierre Jeunet) are also two favourites due to the cinematography, and again, they manage to portray the scene excellently. The plots are simple, but it really doesn't have to be complex because the focus is on the cinematography and acting, and they are both excellent.
I'm going to mention The Matrix as well. For some reason, I get a lot of hate for that. Personally I think the first movie was very good (the second two, I still enjoyed, but they weren't so good) it had an original idea, and I still think the fight scenes are cool no matter how cheesy they may seem. I remember it was immensely popular when it was first released and I honestly don't know why people are suddenly bashing it.
As for novels, A Clockwork Orange is a classic and a definite favourite, anyone who's read it will probably know why. I'm also currently reading Brave New World, which is also very good.
