I give each movie three numerical rankings:
- Futurism rating
- Entertainment rating
- Plausibility rating
These are combined to rank the best futurist movies.
Is the movie a thoughtful, coherent view of the future? Does it present something innovative? Does it depict an elaborate scenario, an event, or a single variable? From 10 (superb) to 1 (abysmal). Plausibility is rated separately.
How much I enjoy it, with 10 the highest. I make no claim that my response is typical.
How likely is it that this set of circumstances might arise? Sometimes, for instance with meteor impacts, the rating is based on how plausibly the response to an unlikely event is depicted.
