Rian Johnson'sLooper has been deemed a modern classic already by fans and critics alike, with Joseph Gordon Levitt's Joe doing battle against his elder self played by Bruce Willis. There's time-bending action, intense shootouts and even a tiny bit of heart for those love-lorn souls out there.

But the biggest lesson to learn from it is, our future looks pretty bleak. Yes, there is the added bonus that 10% of the population now has telekinetic powers and that time travel isn't too far away but an economic collapse and the decay of society all but ruins those advantages.

What other movies have prepared us for a bleak future that didn't involve hover boards?
