Well, after talking with a friend about some of the movies that we’ve both seen, I decided to look for a list of dystopian films. I found the list on wiki, and then just took the time to sort it by IMDB rating.

I’ll use it to sort what movies to watch next, maybe it can also be of some use to you.
