The perception of utopia is applied to an idea as to an upcoming society. The elite wanted to relate utopia with the creation of a fantasy world; which was ultimately impossible to get. Isolating and ridiculing the imagination of the people is the best tool to maintain the status quo. Throughout history there have always been visionaries able to imagine the future. An utopia is a vision of the future, not the present. If there are no utopias in human society there would be no progress, and we would still be nomads. Utopias are not achieved with a magic wand but with the collective effort of millions of people. Utopia doesn’t come true overnight. Depending on the project, utopia can take centuries to materialize. Also, the design may be essential to prevent any failure of system operation. When this happens, there is usually a new utopia based on previous solutions to overcome the problems. We need to look seriously at utopias as we are co-creators of reality. Utopias are plans for future alternatives that may be better or worse designed. The creation of utopias is the definitive role of human beings in our new cosmic human stage. Utopia is ultimately the process of creating the future. Utopia is an imaginary world created by you. Where you go whenever you hunger to get away from reality, you can create your utopia wonderfully, and live in a dream you cannot live in reality, building a perfect world, totally opposing with the modern world, as Albert Einstein would say, “Imagination is more important than wisdom.” A utopian society is a civilization that has impeccable political and social order. When speaking about an idealistic society, the term “perfect” is synonymous. Consequently, through the years Hollywood has been working on certain amount of movies to give the impression that the ideal society exist or that Hollywood can make it happen. In movies such as “Wall-E,” “Bug’s Life,” “Surrogates,” “Avatar,” “Matrix,” “Narnia,” and many more the perfect society give the impression to be close, but then again is very far-off. The ideal society includes knowledge, respect, equality and fairness. All these vital elements generate a faultless social order. In the idyllic society, when these components all come together, this permits one and all to live in serenity and peacefulness, and nothing ever goes wrong, but this is short-lived due to the fact that there’s not good without bad. These films, and numerous others like them, demonstrate that though a Utopia appears like it may be correct in front of us, unfortunately it is nowhere in prospect. Nevertheless, it seems as though everybody in this world has a different perspective of their ideal Utopia. After watching three recognized movies, regarding numerous specific societies’ “problems,” the authors only proved my previous point. I compared three different Hollywood films including “Wall-E,” “Bug’s Life,” and “Surrogates.” Although each society can be seen from completely different views, they each resemble each other by representing the citizens own form of utopia in their very own ideal society. In the first film I watched “Wall-E” is a 2008 American computer-animated romantic science fiction film directed by Andrew Stanton and manufactured by “Pixar Animation Studios”. It narrates a story about a remote, but not so unrealistic, upcoming where mankind has abandoned earth for the reason that it has turned out to be covered with garbage and air contamination. Wall-E, a trash accumulating robot, has been left to clean up the chaos. Fascinated with jewelries of Earth's antiquity and show melodies, Wall-E is unaccompanied on Earth except for a vigorous domesticated pet cockroach. Along the way, at some point, Eve, a shiny and unsafe and precarious investigation robot, is sent to world to find evidence that natural life is once again maintainable. Wall-E falls in love with Eve. Wall-E saves Eve from a dust tornado and gives her as a present a living plant he found in the...
