Well, the year 1984 turned out to be not nearly as unpleasant as George Orwell predicted, so there’s probably no reason to worry about all the recent movies featuring a dystopian future. “Elysium” and the upcoming “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” (opens November 22)

are just two of the films that suggest that if you think things are bad now, just wait a hundred years or so. What are your favorites in this genre? Put your picks in the comments section or send them to me at petervkeough@gmail.com. The deadline is Monday.
