So last night I watched Idiocracy. It's starring Luke Wilson and was released mostly straight-to-DVD last year because its very anti-corporation and so it's company refused to promote it. How scary is that?
Speaking of scary, the movie definitely was. A completely average guy - average IQ, average strength, etc - is "frozen" for what is supposed to be a year in a crazy army experiment. But he is forgotten and doesn't wake up until the year 2505. By this point, the world has gone crazy.
Everything is branded, people are all insanely stupid and the President (pictured above) is a former wrestler-porn star. Joe is suddenly the smartest person in the world. Definitely watch it, it makes you want to actually be intelligent and read.

Doctor: Don't worry scrote. There are plenty of 'tards out there living really kick ass lives. My first wife was 'tarded. She's a pilot now.
Frito: [Acting as Joe's public defender] It says here you robbed a hospital. Why'd you do that?
Pvt. Joe Bowers: I'm not guilty!
Frito: That's not what the other lawyer said.
Judge Hank "The Hangman" BMW: Now prosecutor, why you think he done it?
Prosecutor: 'Kay. Number one your honor, just look at him. And B, we've got all this, like, evidence, of how, like, this guy didn't even pay at the hospital. And I heard that he doesn't even have his tattoo.
Prosecutor: I know! And I'm all, 'you've gotta be shittin' me!' But check this out man, judge should be like [bangs fist on table]
Prosecutor: 'guilty!' Peace.
Pvt. Joe Bowers: I just need you to tell me how to get to the time machine.
Frito: Oh, that's easy. You go down by the museum and stuff... It's like- it's, like, by the museum... Sorta by... Actually, not really. More like on the street, you go, um... Wait, let me start over. Okay, you know where the time machine is?
So the former Olsen and Olsen Detective Agency are looking like the ghostly criminals they caught as young'uns. Whatever. You know I think they look amazing in anything.
