idiocracy

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.

Quotes:

[Billboard Ad]: If you don't smoke Tarryltons... Fuck You!

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.
[crowd boos]
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.

OMG the olsen's what is up with the blond zombie hair....that's no good though the outfits are still fab on them...

remember they were wandering around looking like bag ladies a year before the Balencia show with the "bag lady" dresses.

I wanted to see that movie terribly badly, but I'm glad I didn't waste my time because it sounds like it barely made par. Oh well, might as well check it out anyways because it has my Luke in it :]

The Olsen's
hate em and love em at the same time
what a strange, strange world we live in.

Isabel said...

Damn, those Olsens look fab.

luke wilson is so hawt, I read a review of that in the paper here, it sounds really good. It hasn't been released in the UK, I guess because of why it wasn't released in North America in cinemas. Ah well, I'll be sure to see it sometime

That movie sounds hilarious. I shall have to track it down. Olsens look fab, I am strangely obsessed with those mini-turbans. However, I would never wear one whilst sober.

oh sweet jaysus.
that is southern woman speak for "oh sweet jesus."
my favorite cafeteria lady (yes i hang out with cafeteria ladies...shut up) is southern and whenever my friends and i ask her for extra pie (we're MAJOR pie whores) she always says "oh sweet jaysus" in that accent so i've started saying it.
what was my point?
oh yes. the olsens. oh sweet jaysus. i will admit SOMETIMES they look good but for the most part it looks like they fell out of the fug tree and hit every fug branch on the way down.

now i have an urge to see that movie.

I love it. No matter how much you make fun of these chicks you still remain loyal. That's why I gravitate towards you... lol.

As for Idiocracy, any movie that contains dialogue like that has got to be a ball full of CAMP. Sign me up. Never knew about such crap...LMAO.
