Is 2015 the Year of a Data Dystopia?

“Two thousand fifteen! You mean we're in the future?” - Marty McFly
Having recently watched the Oscars a couple of months ago, there is something about this time of year that makes watching a good film particularly satisfying. But even amidst so many great new releases, there is nothing like sitting down and watching a true classic with the family. Back to the Future Part II, starring a fresh faced Michael J. Fox, and Christopher Lloyd as the eminent Doc Brown, has to be up there amongst the best. Not least because it offers a refreshingly positive take on the future, without the dystopic themes and imagery of other futuristic classics such as Robocop, Terminator, or Mad Max.  That’s not to say that dystopia is without merit, it is a major motif in both literature and film, indeed, what self-respecting sci-fi fan doesn’t love a good alien-controlled, cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic storyline? But sometimes it’s good to get away from doom and gloom!
