Dystopian Universe

© mattepainting.org

If you are following the last couple of posts you must be knowing that I am too much into the book 1984 and everything else related to it. As I searched along I got to know more about it and I found out that there is a particular genre dedicated to these types of literary work called “Dystopia”. Dystopia is a community that is undesirable or frightening, it’s from Greek meaning “not-good place”, also antonym of utopia(the blueprint of ideal society).

Unknowingly I have watched many movies of this particular genre and most of them are my favorite.To list the movies which I have seen and fall into this category are:
1. The Matrix series
2. Minority Report
3. 12 Monkeys
4. Equilibrium
5. A Clockwork Orange
6. V for Vendetta
7. District 9
8. Wall-E
9. I Am Legend
10. I-Robot
11. In Time
12. Terminator Series
13. Planet of the Apes
14. Total Recall

The interesting thing about these movies is that they are brilliantly directed and I loved them all(except a few like A Clockwork Orange and 12 Monkeys, especially because of their endings and depressing plot line). If you have seen any of the above movies odds are that you would like the rest of them too, except of course number 3 and 5(watch them at your own risk).

Enough about movies already..!!

I have started reading the book “Solving the Procrastination Puzzle” by Timothy A. Pychyl. It has a promising start and I would share my learning with you in subsequent posts.
