I happened to watch this on demand last night, and thought while parts were funny, it wasn't very good.

I was torn, and i couldn't figure out if i was laughing at the stupid shiat they were laughing at or if I was laughing at how stupid they were for laughing at the stupid shiat. In the end, I'm convinced this is exactly what mike judge wanted in the movie.

A surreal trap to any over intellectualization.

Idiocracy is a decent movie, but would have been better without studio and network interference. The observations made aren't especially poignant unless you happen to be in need of a clueing-in, which kind of makes the movie about you. But I like the "that's so true" aspect.

/Oh and, Ow My Balls!

The ingredients in Brawndo should really contain sterilization chemicals.

Alright, that's IT. I don't want to hear any more of you smart Farkers ranting on about "breeders" and "crotchfruit" and how babies are disgusting and annoying and cramp your lifestyle. That's how we got into this mess, people!

The future of human civilization depends on us. You're going to pair off, you're going to mate, you're going to have offspring, you're going to educate them, and you're going to f*cking LIKE IT. Two-kid minimum, more if you can handle it.

And for f*ck's sake, don't let your kids date stupid people!

Calvin Coolidge: Wow, they completely ripped off the Powerthirst (pops) video from YouTube.

It was voiced by the same guys that made the Powerthirst video...credit is even given at the end of the video.

If you didn't pay attention well to idiocracy, you'd think it was simply about making fun of dumb people. But if you rewatch the intro, you'd notice that it's a heavy critcism on all the 'smart' people. All their worrying about money/time/correctness, leads to the over population of idiots.

That parts easy to forget as 95% of the movie is just stupid shiat.

I hate to bring this thread up again, but....

Let's see how Sylvia Browne did in her predictions for 2007, 187 posts!
Not one post/mention of Brawndo.

Looks like Mike Judge, creator of Idiacracy, has an equal foothold in the prediction circuit. Brawndo +1

Don't wanna sound like a dick or nothing, but says here you're farked. You're shiat's all retarded, and you talk like a fag.
 
2007-12-09 01:43:15 PM  
Idiocracy really accomplished something interesting in my opinion.

It seems that every single person who liked the movie was also left somewhat uncomfortable or found the movie to be unsettling.

How often do you watch a movie and not know if you should laugh at absurdity or be scared that there is a lot of truth to it?

I got upset too. It hits a little too close to home.

It is produced by Redux beverages, makers of the infamous Cocaine Energy drink.

Tastes exactly like lime jell-o!

KerwoodDerby: Nobody wins when life imitates art.

Ah, but what if life imitated Met-Art? (NSFW, eh?) That's something I think we could all enjoy.

But: Creating a drink based on some stuff that was in a movie that wasn't insanely popular seems like a pretty dumb thing to do. It probably won't make the creators much money. Even if it is funny, it'll have a short shelf life, much like the $MOVIE cereals that show up every time there's a big-budget animated movie.

Electrolytes are commonly acids, bases or salts, not sugars.

It sounds like the Brawndo commercial was produced by the same guys as the Powerthirst videos. So they couldn't, in fact, rip themselves off.
