Minority Report (2002)
  A movie that dares to suggest that freedom is too high a price to pay for safety, released when liberties are being forfeited for national security. If only all summer blockbusters were this relevant.
Blade Runner (Director's Cut) (1982)
  The first movie adapted from a PKD story (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?). It's bleak soulless influence can be seen in a whole sub-genre of future dystopias such as The Terminator, Brazil, and The Matrix.
Screamers (1995)
  The first third of the movie is burdened with expository diaglogue that explains the elaborate, but irrelevant backstory. After that it gets to the good stuff: paranoia and ambiguity, the stuff PKD does best. (based on the short story Second Variety)
Total Recall (1990)
  In my opinion, Paul Verhoeven's style is too campy for effective noir. This adaptation (We Can Remember It For You Wholesale) would benefit from less garish direction. I nominate David Fincher.
Impostor (2000)
  This movie was originally filmed as a short, but was fleshed out to feature length by creating a middle act that's just an extended chase scene, but what really ruins the movie is a obvious flaw in the storyline that sci-fi fans will spot immediately.
