Netflix Instant: Dystopian Future Edition

The theme for this week's Netflix comes courtesy of the only interesting wide release, DIVERGENT. This is yet another young adult book series that takes place in a dystopian future and features a no-nonsense lady protagonist so here are a few dystopian future movies. Check them out after the break.

I already reviewed this movie, but it's a fun, gory action adventure set in a very anti-corporate future.

This Brian Trenchard-Smith joint is one of the first movies of his that I saw and I still revisit it every once in a while. For the sake of including this movie, I'm going to imagine that this is set in a dystopian future, given that the social rejects are segregated in a drive-in.

As a chubby nerd with bad vision, the thought of a future where your life is determined much more explcitily by your genetic material, this movie stressed the hell out of me. If I remember correctly, this was not that well reviewed when it came out, but I've also rewatched this movie and I quite like it.

That's it for me, folks. Hope you enjoy them.
