I have a love/hate relationship with them since they actually make me worry about the future, but they're also REALLY good. So I think I do like them, but I need to be in a particular mode to watch or read.
Dystopian (opposite of Utopian) stories have been around for a long time. I read 1984 back in high school and liked it well enough but hated Fahrenheit 451. My wife read the Handmaid's Tale in college and hated it too. I have yet to read the Time Machine or Brave New World. However, I did like the Running Man. I hope I have time over Christmas break to read Armageddon's Children.
Post-apocalypse and dystopia stories make me really uncomfortable. I never liked having to read books like Fahrenheit 451 or Brave New World or The Giver in high school. And I couldn't get into The Hunger Games or pretty much any zombie movie either.
