9. MINORITY REPORT (2002)

Who knows, some day you might drink a bit too much and knock some disrespectful bouncer straight into a hospital, or pay a generous cable guy to illegally hook your tube up with the dirty channels. In reality, there’s no way to see into the future and know whether we’ll break any laws or not; in Philip K. Dick’s universe, though, a special division of the fuzz can do just that. Steven Spielberg directed this adaptation of a Dick short story, starring Tom Cruise as a cop who, using precognitive beings to see future events, arrests criminals before they actually commit their wrongful act(s). It’s a slightly altered presentation of a Big Brother scenario, one that puts BB into a police department and gives the idea a positive, lawful spin. Yet, since none of us know what the hell we’ll do in the future, the concept behind Minority Report is more than a little discomforting.
