That's a bit ahead of schedule, but considering that I've made a 2019 poll like this I'm very much digging it. 2020 certainly has much more movies set in it then 2019, which is a bit odd, to be honest.

I think they both are about equal, 2019 was more far reaching than 2020, as most of the 2020 movies only jump a decade or less into the future. I like your movie list better, there are more iconic movie in the 2019 version. As for the ahead of schedule, I don't really see any new answer options popping up, so I am taking a set and forget philosophy and will push it to the forefront of the discussion on New Years.

A timely December 2019 poll looking back at the 2010's and forward toward the 2020's as the decades change.

A decent movie, it has some tough competition though. You can vote for your choice, Running Man in last year's New Year Day 2019 version by nikolayyeriomin. here: https://www.imdb.com/poll/RaikJ8uAANI/

Which of these past movies set in a not too distant future year, 2019 is the best future look of today?

My first choice for movies set in a future 2019 would be Blade Runner (1982), then Akira (1988), then a toss-up for third between The Island (2005) and The Running Man (1987).

Corrected.

Are you sure it needs two commas, instead of just moving the one comma to after 2020?

Neat!   
You seem to have all the big ones.
My favorite is Quiet Place or Edge of Tommorow.

Thanks, both of those are very near future being set only 2 years (A Quiet Place 2018 | Movie Timeline: 2020 –2021) and 6 years  (Edge of Tomorrow 2014 | Movie Timeline: 2020) into the future.
