When Arthur C. Clarke died, science fiction – hell, science in general – lost one of its greatest, most forward-looking masters. In his honour, Popular Mechanics’s resident geek and sci-fi buff analyses the most eerily predictive, prescient films of the future.

I’m not going to list the films in ranking, instead I’m listing them alphabetically.
