Neither Utopic nor Dystopic...Choose your weapon er... bike.
Novels about the future often portray either a dystopian or utopian society punctuated by reflections on how the surviving humans interact with each other, with the environment or even with sentient machines, more specifically humanoid robots that will either serve and save humankind or cause the dawning of doomsday or Armageddon, whichever the author has a penchant for. Some would juxtapose the two and show how divided they are when it comes to how they value human existence. However, be it dystopian or utopian, many novels that have been brought to the screen especially by Hollywood most often show a generation that is dependent on an energy source that is either arbitrarily abundant or rare.
