Hey readers–it’s time for another update to the #scifitop7 Twitter hashtag! The next category will be dystopias, in any written or filmed form. Of course, many of my favorite speculative works are dystopian in nature, but I digress… 🙂
My #scifitop7 dystopias (any media): Battlestar Galactica(2004); World War Z; 1984; The Year of the Flood; Oryx & Crake; Blade Runner; Gattaca
For the record: some of my more high-ranking favorites like 28 Days Later didn’t make the cut only because I don’t really consider them “dystopian” in the same way as the rest of the list. They might have an apocalyptic tilt, but to me, that’s not the same thing…feel free to diplomatically disagree 🙂
Thanks for reading! Check back for upcoming media appearances and contests. And have a good weekend!
