10 Most Prophetic Sci-Fi Movies Ever

Item: The 10 most prophetic sci-fi movies ever/Popular Mechanics

More Info: When Arthur C. Clarke died last week at the age of 90, science fiction—hell, science in general—lost one of its greatest, most forward-looking masters. In his honor, PM’s resident geek and sci-fi buff analyzes the most eerily predictive, prescient films of the future. They’re not necessarily the best movies—just the ones that got the science right, or will sometime soon.

List: 10. "2001: A Space Odyssey," 9. "Short Circuit," 8. "Soylent Green," 7. "Blade Runner," 6. "The Running Man," 5. "Destination Moon," 4. "The Truman Show," 3. "The Road Warrior," 2. "Minority Report," and "Gattaca."

Question: I was surprised to discover that I've seen 8 of those movies. How many have you seen? And are there any movies that should be on the lis?
