Default Best World-Bulding Scripts?

Just curious -- which scripts would you say stand out at being especially effective at world-building?

To be clear (in case some may understand the term "world-building" in a different way than I do), I mean: which screenplays that present stories set largely or entirely in worlds other than our own present-day Earth -- be it science-fiction planets, or future Earths, or alternative realities -- depict those unfamiliar environments in the most effective of ways?

Given the current "less is more" mantra of screenwriting, this presumably means scripts that give the reader the most impactful presentations of their worlds with the greatest economy of words: no more than needed, but enough to provide an engaging, perhaps even irresistible impression.
