Futuristic Sci-fi/Dystopian Films

Gavin Campbell

Continuing from the last thread, i wasn't really a futuristic sci-fi fan until i read the last thread, it gave me a good amount of great films to watch.

Now i can't get enough, do you all have any recommendations for films, tv shows, games etc set in a futuristic setting. I'm new to this genre but here are a few of my favorites so far (pic related)

not futuristic but technically sci-fi, The Man In The High Castle takes place in a world where the Nazis and the Japs won the war.

Brody Cox

Dylan King

Any indie futuristic films? i;ve always figured they wouldn't have the money for crazy cgi so i never looked into it

Joseph Johnson
Joseph Johnson

Does the new JJ Star Wars movie count?Minimal CGI in there and I loved it. Hated all his Star Trek though.

Josiah Sanders

I've never seen the Star Wars films, are they worth the hype?

Evan Fisher

What the fuck is this? Nothing with that title looks anything close on IMDB. These stills (or paintings?) look interesting af

Luis Harris

Cerebral sci-fi directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. This guy also did Solaris. ← a must-fucking-see for any sci-fi fan. It was later redone with George Clooney as lead lel. Skip the Clooney version ffs.
Anything by him is worth watching.

Colton Wright
Colton Wright

Oh shit haha my bad i should have mentioned it wasn't a movie, i was just dumping a few pics related to the theme. They are paintings by an artist named Simon StÄlenhag check out his shit, its all really neat futuristic type stuff

I'm the one who posted Stalker, and I thought the Soderburgh remake was actually pretty great

Owen Foster

Soderbergh remake
Of Solaris of course

Isaiah Turner
Isaiah Turner

Only if you can find the unedited versions of the first 3 and the last one. Episodes 1 -3 are crap made by someone who had too much power for anyone under him to tell him they sucked.

Xavier Price
Xavier Price

I saw Solaris. Loved it. Never saw the cloony version as I dislike him.

Lincoln Sanchez

Not exactly thread-related, but has anyone seen this? I'm about to watch it.

Hunter King

Why are they better unedited? I saw revenge of the sith (i think) when it came out in theaters, buti was a kid so i dont remember shit

Logan Scott
Logan Scott

I literally just watched that an hour or so ago. It was actually alright. I'm very much against low-grade, shitty films, too, but this didn't bother me that much in terms of quality for some reason.

Ayden Rivera
Ayden Rivera

Nice. Judging by the trailer, I thought it looked promising.

Michael Martinez

If you can tolerate Bruce Dern and 1970's cheese, Silent Running was breddy neat-o

Sebastian Ortiz

mfw I can't stand Bruce Dern or cheese

Isaiah Reyes
Isaiah Reyes

Well the special effects sucked on the old ones and if he had just redid that they would have been fine. To bad he changed many things that made the first ones good.

Dylan Carter
Dylan Carter

That one made me sad. Poor Huey Dewy and Lewy.

Angel Phillips

To be honest, I watched it on a complete whim. The Netflix description was so bizarre I just said "Fuck it, we're going on an adventure."

Given that I want to write movie scripts professionally someday, I figured this was a terrible movie to learn from, so I hit play.

Ryder James
Ryder James

Have you heard of Kowloon?
It was a cyberpunk city in real life.
It's gone now though.

Cooper Hughes
Cooper Hughes

I actually recently heard about it, i saw photos of the exterior and i thought it was pretty fucking neat. Does anything like this exist?

Also what exactly is Cyberpunk? I just got into the futuristic stuff and ive been seeing that term mentioned a lot

Isaac Cook
Isaac Cook

If you're looking for another good one to watch on Netflix, check out The Duke of Burgundy – if you like Art Films, then you'll love it.

Chase Perry

Cyberpunk
It pretty much refers to subject matter that mainly revolves around the internet, virtual reality, and Hackers.

Owen Foster
Owen Foster

The gist is "Low life, High technology"
Think AKIRA, Ghost in the shell, The Matrix, Blade Runner. Ect.
Check out /cyber/index.html

Julian Edwards

This is similar, its not futuristic but post apocalyptic with zombies and shit. This one has actual audio effects though its not just a person reading

Hunter Ross
Hunter Ross

that also falls under the category of cyberpunk.
You should see Serial Experiments Lain.

Christopher Hill

any more videos like this, they're so cool.

Xavier Myers

Low life, High technology
That's a perfectly concise way to describe it

Yeah, I've thought up a few stories related to the genre, wanna take a listen to my ideas? I'm going to make a comic out of it.

Thomas Butler

The concept of the story I have in mind is rooted in another, a small story of a vampire hunter, in the story, it's not too important, but it is the chronological beginning of the setting. The gist of the story (Which I drew it up in sophomore year, I have no idea where it is now,) is; the bastard son of a Spanish aristocrat and a peasant woman in 1800's Mexico discovers that vampires are present in the town he lives in when a weak vampire attacks him in his sleep, to his surprise after getting bit, the vampire began burn alive, as his blood is completely caustic to vampires. He takes up vampire hunting, and eventually discovers more oddities in the world, all a result of a strange material that distorts and bends reality when various things are done to it, such as running a current through it. The comic never really got too far into it, as it was just an excuse to have theses weird occurrences in an otherwise normal earth. There was enough present on earth to cause such strange creatures to exist, but come the 1900s, A massive explosion rocks Siberia, bringing in thousands of tonnes of the stuff, this has the effect you'd expect, it wasn't world ending, but things where stranger from that point on. WWII comes around, and the axis powers comes to attain a large quantity of the stuff, they manufacture a weapon of mass destruction with it, and bomb London, The US had just developed its own WMD, the nuke, then they nuke japan, thus ending the war in a stalemate.
Now for the cyberpunk story
I haven't really nailed down the setting, but it has to take place in a mega city with an intense Asian influence, think Hong Kong.
The previous war had left the area the city was in a political gray area, as such it became a haven for just about anyone, gangsters, political fugitives, multinational corporations, and secret societies. Law is loose in this town, and the levels of violence are sky rocketing, the cities council (Made up of businessmen, and various aristocrats) hires multiple paramilitary factions to act as a form of law reinforcement. These Companies are ridiculously competitive, fighting for territory and funds, just like a bunch of glorified gangs. Not to be confused with actual gangs, who control the massive slums of the cities, massive structures of retched squalor and misery. One of these gangs was home to a man named Macready, and he adopted an orphan, a son. His son lived quite comfortably with him and his family, but as a figure head of a large gang, he was a constant target for gangs, and police. One day the cops manage to nab him, and through him in the slammer, one practically run from the inside by a rival gang. The rival gang contacts his son, and hold the life of his adopted father hostage. The ultimatum they give him: Make hits for us, or your father dies. Not wanting to see his father killed, he accepts, now a soldier for men that would like to see him dead, he's forced to run head first in situations so dangerous they'd be the end of the average man. (Part 1)

Jack Allen

Not a big fan of vampire stories, in general, but I like the idea of a guy whose blood is poisonous to vampires.

As for the Cyberpunk story, the general idea seems solid. I like the idea of a character whose duality is forced upon him.

Mason Price
Mason Price

(continued)
The son begins to work for the gang, at first working as a street punk in incredibly dangerous neighborhoods, often time fighting dozens of delinquents at a time, despite the odds against him, he manages to not only survive but thrive, eventually becoming a small urban legend in the area (can you see where this is going,)
The sons reputation is duly noted by his "Employers" and they task him increasingly more difficult and dangerous assassination missions. Often out numbered and outgunned, he still some how manages to make it out of each situation alive, eluding both death, and law enforcement. This continues until his employers decide that he's too dangerous to be allowed to live, thus they send a hit squad to kill him. Naturally they fail, the son then is notified that his father had been killed in a prison riot, no doubt orchestrated by the mafia clan that he had been working for, feeling seething anger, he goes on a one man war against the very people he worked for, destroying the organization thoroughly, On his final assault on their headquarters, he is heavily wounded, and his captured by authorities. The court sympathizing with him refuse to give him the chair, but give him the equivalent instead, serving as the point man for a police forces' suicide squad. It's here where he begins to encounter various spooks and monsters, like werewolfs, psykers, and vampires.

And all this is the cobbled together backstory to a quest I'm running.

Ok, you went off the fuckin rails at the end with the supernatural shit, but all in all, I think it has potential.

Just make sure you do your best to keep the autism in check, and if you can manage that, then I'd be interested to see the finished product.

Noah Martinez
Noah Martinez

well, the supernatural elements are going to be underplayed, the situation would be like any other one but somewhere along the line shit would start getting weird.

Liam Jones

Children of Men.

Owen Parker
Owen Parker

I haven't seen any TV shows mentioned so heres one

Colony: Not sure what specific year it takes place in but its definitely in the future. Los Angeles has been invaded and occupied by outside forces who has put a giant wall separating the city(trumparoni) causing a rift between the city's residents; some have collaborated with the occupation, while others are rebelling and suffering the consequences that come with that choice. Former FBI agent Will Bowman and his wife, Katie, must consider their familial obligations when making their decision because they were separated from their son, Bram, during the invasion. Proxy Snyder, a cunning and powerful leader within the occupational government, offers Will the opportunity to get Bram back if he works with the invading faction. Will's decision doesn't sit well with Katie, but the couple risk their lives – and their relationship – to protect their family.

Ryan Cooper
Ryan Cooper

Nothing beats Children of Men imo

There's also
The Divide (life in a bunker as the world ends) 7/10
Extinction (post-apocalyptic world inhabited by mutants-like creatures. Not your average Hollywood slash/gore type of movie. Actually has substance) 8/10
Automata (Movie about AI) 8.5/10
Snowpiercer (Life on earth is extinct, and the only humans are on train which runs around the world indefinitely) 9/10

Levi Thompson
Levi Thompson

FUCK YES Automata, i've seen anons giving it a lot of shit but i fucking loved that movie

I'll have to check out Extinction and The Divide! I might have to watch Snowpiercer again as well, i didnt get that shit

Gavin Martinez
Gavin Martinez

And how could I forget Threads.. About a nuclear war breaking out, and the horrors of an atomic bomb attack. Dark, gritty and extremely depressing. One of the best movies in the genre.

Caleb Thomas
Caleb Thomas

Cool man, glad you agree. And yeah, Snowpiercer got pretty confusing towards the end. It's a hell of a movie..

The Divide is pretty brutal.

There's also Blindness, based on a besteller book by Jose Saramago. About a virus that turns people blind, which of course plunges the world into chaos.

Kayden Thompson
Kayden Thompson

Last Night: The world has six hours left until an asteroid hits and wipes out humanity.

The setting seems interesting, but like all movies I bet it depicts the Nazis as evil monsters who killed 6 billion Jews in gas chambers built after the war in bathrooms with crappy doors, not to mention the holocoasters.

Easton Brooks
Easton Brooks

eh to be fair the Nazi's were assholes. Obviously you'll feel differently if you agree with their ideals.

The show itself cool though,Its interesting seeing everything Nazi-fied, lol

Connor Peterson

Tyler Gutierrez
Tyler Gutierrez

Eh idk, there are some movies i like where it just about the visuals and/or concept. I don't look for elite directing in what i watch, i just take it at face value

Juan Powell
Juan Powell

visuals are one part ,and certainly an important part in cinema but the plot is the backbone of a film and the stronger it is the better. a great plot is good at face-value and amazing when you take an in-depth look at it
one of the reasons michael haneke is one of my favorite directors

James Young
James Young

Good plots are equally important as execution i guess, just look at The Purge. Incredibly cool concept (imo) but POORLY done. I just saw the newest one and it was shit as expecte

Zachary Gray

The Expanse is dope, i've never liked these space type shows. Not to mention it was on the Sy-Fy channel so i brushed it off as cheesy, cheap, or both. I was surprised at how well done the show was, i ended up loving it.

They don't specify on what year its taking place in, but to give you a sense of the time basically we have colonized most planets in our solar system.

Now i'm looking for more, preferably with the futuristic/cyber punk theme

Could any of you help me out with remembering the name of a movie? I can't remember much they showed it to us back in 8th grade. Anyway all i remember is it was a bunch of kids in some building and i think the sun never comes out or something because they were excited as fuck when it did come out.

thats all i can really remember

Asher Rogers

It's too Hollywood-y in my opinion. The heroic American's struggle against the evil Nazi occupiers…

I tried watching it. It's bland, full of chliches and doesn't make me anxious to know what'll happen next.

Isaac Morales
Isaac Morales

Not that user but
i thought the same thing but i mean what else would you expect for a plot?

It would make sense for some sort of resistance to be in the plot

Dylan Foster
Dylan Foster

found something similar but like the user mentioned it doesn't have audio effects like this one below vvvv

any help anons?

Carson Flores
Carson Flores

Fair point, but it's the exact same predictable premise that you can find in nearly 70% of Hollywood movies.

They could've made a much more challenging resistance plot but instead they chose a stereotypical story with flat characters, simply because that appeals more to the majority of viewers and that's all that matters.
