'Movies Like Total Recall': Dystopian Sci-Fi Classics

After the fall of fascism and the growth of communism, Hollywood was inundated with speculative sci-fi imagining how the future might look if 'The Man' got his way. Having passed many of the years these films were set in (e.g. 1984), all we can say is : 'Thank God it's not THAT bad!'

'Movies Like They Live': The 80s Campiest Sci-Fi

No other decade matches the 80s for pure campness; if you want to understand the camp aesthetic, you can read any number of lengthy critical theory essays. Or you can just watch 'Flash Gordon' and get the whole thing in a nutshell.
