11. Mad Max (1979)
Set In Year: The future (obvs)
Prediction(s): An energy shortage leads to absolute anarchy.
Sure, one could say that Mad Max's forecast that dwindling natural resources would be a source of anxiety is somewhat prophetic. But the matter has yet to reduce us to a bunch of leather-clad, marauding maniacs. Perhaps the upcoming installment, due out next year, will do something to right these wrongs.
