1. 1984 (1984)
1984
1984 came and went, and the hellish police state envisioned in this movie did not come to pass, at least it hasn't yet. In a nice twist, the movie was released in 1984.

We haven't made contact with aliens, we don't have passenger space flights and we don't have sentient AI.

5. Future Boy Conan (1978)
2008
Was the Earth nearly destroyed by "Ultra Magnetic" weapons? No, we made it fine through 2008 and there aren't any ultra magnetic weapons (that I know of anyway).

6. 2010: The Year We Make Contact (1984)
2010
Arthur Clarke's dreams of space travel still remain a fantasy. We haven't even made it back to the moon since the 70s.

7. Aeon Flux (2005)
2011
99% of the Earth's population did not get destroyed, as I write this with 2 months to go in 2011, but there's still the billion to one chance of it happening....


 

Movies that predicted the future with very specific dates, that are now in the past.

Updated for 2011.
