Scifis that either think our future or (accurately) defined our present

Rank's base on the quality of the reflection.

Space's not considered scifi-y if it just serves as a backdrop.
Godzilla and kaijus aren't included since they deserve a list of their own.
Super-heroes aren't science-fiction.
Although time-travel is one of my favorite trope it doesn't automatically qualify as (good) scifi.
