Is Dystopia a Metaphor for The Real World?

This honestly took a while for me to come up with. I still feel as if there is no way to perfectly define what I feel dystopia is. Anyway, here is my take on it. Dystopia is an imagined world that is full of fear, thrill and making the impossible seem real. I say this because I think of the movies Alita battle warrior, Percy Jaackson, hunger games, and Squid Games. Watching these movies is very scary to me. It also makes me think about what I would do if I were in the situations these people faced. These movies make me have a whole range of emotions. Like I said at first I am scared and then the more I watch I think if that was me, I would do this. I convince myself that I can outsmart whatever monster or obstacle that pops in my way. These people start off in the real world but one little thing changes their life. It is not that far off based on what people face everyday. It is just more dramatized. Whatever these people are going through in these dystopia could be metaphors for what everyday people are facing.
