Re: Who has the most realistic 'future'?

The Time Machine (that remake) depicted the future well (the immediate one, not the Morlock future). AI, interactive menus, and 3D technology is already used.

Minority Report (aside from the psychics) had a plausible future. Their highways and police dispatch responds to overpopulation.

It's Sojouner, so, yea, I'm thinking it's the same joke I was going to make, and I haven't seen the movie (Though, I knew that's what you meant)

You never know. That's why I'm stupid & use emotes. Besides, it seemed like a good opportunity to recommend the movie regardless

LOL

IMO, possibly the film I, Robot and, for farther ahead, the Alien movies, especially Alien: Resurrection.
