HeFixesTheCable: Gordon Bennett: I loved Idiocracy. Granted, it wasn't the greatest of stories but the scenario was inspired and many of the set pieces were brilliant.

I can't say that I'm terribly confident about this idea. Camacho was a great character, but he doesn't have the everyman persona that Luke Wilson's character had as a protagonist and I can't see how that would work as well. Don't get me wrong, I'll give it a chance and I very much hope to be wrong about my pessimistic prediction, but at least at first flush it doesn't appeal to me half as much.

I am, along similar lines very much anticipating the time I will take to sit down to watch Bobcat Goldthwait's God Bless America (pops, red bland trailer, don't know if that is SFW or not). The satirical aspect looks to draw on much the same source. Any Farkers seen this yet? What did you think, and how does it compare with Idiocracy?

Wow, that's odd...I watched it for the first time last night. It's enjoyable. If you find yourself making faces of disgust as you flip through channels, if you're one of those people who "doesn't watch TV" [puts monocle in eye, sips Earl Grey], you'll like it. I confess to being a TV snob, incapable of watching just about everything on outside of movie reruns, serial dramas (e.g. Breaking Bad, The Wire), and Tosh.0 (I never said I was classy). The opening scene of the movie sends up all the dreck on TV, from Mean Girls to American Idol.

If you have ever had the urge to just start performing mercy killings, you'll like it. It's not a "great" film, but it is a guilty pleasure (the second kill is a skeet-like "pull" shot of a screaming baby).

EDIT: "Bad Girls Club," not "Mean Girls."
