Which ones have come to pass?

Asked by Jak (3600points) January 8th, 2016

As an extension to a question asked earlier regarding sci-fi movies, I was thinking about They Live. Now the subliminal conditioning may not be as overt as the movie, but I believe the argument could be made that there are multiple ominous similarities between real life and that movie. Are there other movies out there that have the same disquieting slices of real?

Idiocracy.
You know it is bad when the republican frontrunner makes a “President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho” sound like a good idea.

Well They Live was the director/writer’s own satirical commentary on our consumerist culture, so of course there’s a lot of similarities. That was the point.

@Darth_Algar. Yes. Ok. I was looking for other movies that did the same thing. Like the first responder. That was a good one which I had not thought of.

@ragingloli ‘s got it! That would have been my choice too.
