More like BladeRunner considering people's attitudes towards what's different. There are times when I truly believe humanity would rather go to war than get its shit together.

Bladerunner: the ultimate expression of [other] human beings as disposable. All the above choices have great merit - and one theme unites them(except the road). In each vision, a gang of 'humans' enslaves the rest using various appendages of the government to amplify/enforce the intentional and systematic use of language to obscure rather then clarify the shared reality. Did i spin this well?
It's a Wonderful Life. I like to put my hopes for the future in reality and not fantasy.
Did you miss all the bank bailouts of the last 10 years?
The tread is about what we though, each person responding in kind. Stands to reason that what each of us feels won't be the same as others. I think you may need to watch the movie again, it wasn't about bank bailouts but something more basic to how we look at life and each other.
You mean hope in mythological deities, angels and alternate futures?
Although technically not a movie, I think "Max Headroom" typifies my expectations for the future.
For the hippy in all of us.....
Silent Running ...
Brazil - Terry Gilliam (1985)
It feels remarkably prescient today with it's theme of how humanity gets crushed by technology, procedure and information.
we seem very slow to learn from our mistakes and keep making them...
only there will be no John Connor and
without Neo afterwards
(Not that we're running out of land, but given an exploding population we will ultimately have nowhere to go but to build cities on water and use land for growing crops ... until perhaps we reach a point where most people live on water)
Definitely, this is the future (brought to you by Carls Jr.)
Idiocracy (2006) - IMDb
or Hunger Games
No, not another good one! My age is showing.
Along that same line, maybe West World?
