I Have Seen the Future, and It Sucks

I can't ordinarily see the future. But, with Mike Judge's help, I can. Unfortunately.

I'm hesitant to apply the genre labels to the 2006 "science fiction" "comedy" Idiocracy. An impressive work of genuine prognostication, the film plods under the leaden weight of authentic foresight. If you really want to know exactly what the year 2505 will be like, watch it and take notes. If you want to be entertained ... not so much.

I heard the movie is supposed to be a commentary about how we as a society are progressively getting stupider, yet ironically this movie may be helping the cause.

Me, I still campaign to put lead back in paint.

Yeah, it's sort of like "Dumb and Dumber in the Year 2005." The 'concept' part is handled very well, but I just didn't think Idiocracy was that funny most of the time. (I loved Dumb and Dumber, and I'm a huge Mike Judge fan too. Go figure.)
