Not sure...
Xavier Breath (14 hours ago)
The movie was an attack on capitalism NOT socialism. The fact that you don’t see that FACT means you are one of two things. Either STUPID or a LIAR. You are either blind or a distorting propagandist. In the movie the company Brawndo buys the FCC and the FDA. How on earth did you miss that FACT? Again complete distortion and dishonesty on your part or you yourself are one of the idiots.

The major and unsubstantiated assumptions Dave makes here is that intelligence is determined by genetics and that Darwinian evolution is true, both are wrong and there is more than enough credible verifiable evidence to prove it. Also, the IQ test isn't a test of how much you know but rather how you think, in other words, a high IQ doesn't equate high intelligence and a low IQ doesn't equate to stupidity. What about wisdom? wisdom is separate from intelligence and IQ, wisdom is an invaluable if not essential quality in a prosperous society.

The irony is that to actually tie two buildings together with rope takes a lot of intelligence. Think about it... how the fuck did they even do this?

The society described in this movie is irremediable. It cannot be fixed because the needed resources do not exist. Any attempt to divert resources to worthy projects will be destroyed by the demands of the idiots who constitute the majority. The only future for such a society is total extinction.

Can we take our Liberal bilnders for a second and understand that the movie deals with renegade Capitalism unchecked resulting in Brawndo becoming a monopoly and essentially the new government of which itself sets up a dependent welfare state? Just because it is a company doesn't mean it can't gain power and run a socialist states itself. Saying that the movie is only criticizing Capitalism is plain bias and ignorance. Or you miss the point. The bar codes, the lack of individuality, these are all socialist jabs. Infact an amazing analysis of how anarcho-Capitalism can wrap around and become a Socialist state. But instead of the feseral government being the nanny, Brawndo is. Fascinating honestly and a good critical take on the dancers of runaway Capitalism and run away Socialism taking society to the same point. You have people sitting all day infront of the TV, with a job yet, there they are, welfare. You have elements consumerism with commercialism and name brands plastered everywhere. You have authoritarian rule secured by mob rule. The movie questions multiple types of governing. But people just see "Monopoly" and that's all they take from the film. Or all they WANT TO take...

Beware dude... I'm not saying you INTEND IT. But seriously, just BEWARE, the idea of the Inferior "breading like vermin" compared to the Superior, has led to a lot of cultures saying "let's get ride of the inferior" and when they say 'get rid of' they of course mean, cull as if human beings were nothing more than animal and leave corpses in their way.

The solution is simple in such a scenario: mass execution the stupid. Not outright. Put them to work. Hard work. Make children taxing. Make family hard to sustain. Whittling away of the stagnant gene pool through social improvement. Clean the land, irrigate the soil, shoot the dissidents and the lazy. Authoritarian? Yes. But in coming generations, the IQ will rise and the population will be controlled. After social improvement begins, the masses will be set on a good trajectory.
Nikolas De Moulin (2 days ago)
How exactly did you come up with this narrative of it being the result of socialism? lol. The film director openly stated the film's intent was to mock capitalism and the brain dead consumerist populations it tends to produce. America was actually the inspiration for the film. That's why everything is run by corporations, fast food places are the only restraints left, people wear corporation and brand name logos on their clothing, all anyone does is work then buy a bunch of useless shit like farting TVs and all they watch is "reality" television like WWE wrestling and Kardashian like shows. It's a dystopian capitalist future. consumerism breeds stupidity because overabundance makes people weak, natural selection no longer functions as it should etc.... And the whole Bullsh*t line capitalists use about how capitalism is about competition is nonsense because in the real world that's just not true. there's no such thing as equality nor will there ever be. So claiming capitalism will work because competition keeps it in check is nonsense. As we see even today, we don't see an open field of competition. we see monopolies forming in every area. Google, Facebook, twitter etc... are literally monopolies. That's capitalism. They grew faster thanks to getting hundreds of millions in funding where as their opposition didn't get that funding thus their competition isn't competition at all and thus sites like Twitter are the only viable sites doing what they do and now they can suppress people who hold dissenting opinions. the same thing started to happen with electricity and gas companies which is why we had the government step in to regulate it saying you can't refuse someone electricity or gas for heating their home just because you dislike their politics/beliefs.. but in a capitalist world they could. In a pure capitalist world all hospitals would be private and you could literally be charged criminally for not paying a bikl or refused help outright fir bot having money. that's not a good world. it's a jewish merchant paradise but its not a moral world. competition is a lie skewed by corporatists. one company dominates, becomes a monopoly and then can fuck over the people as they wish because people have no choice. that's capitalism and I'm tired of capitalists doing the "no true Scotsman" nonsense just like communists do. both capitalism and communism are utter trash systems which both result in totalitarian control. communism does this by government and out right violence where as capitalism does it through corporations using blackmail and subversion like flooding addictive drugs, food and media into a peoples community. Slavery is still slavery. just because the capitalists do it "peacefully" in comparison to Communists doesn't change that fact.Both end up with the same result. Socialism isn't evil. Helping our people who need food and shelter but can't afford it or sick people with no money to pay for it is a GOOD thing. The problem only arises when you have open boarders and you start letting non-whites flood into your country to abuse those social programs that are designed only for our fellow white people. That's the only issue. Socialism is viable. National Socialism is a tested a proven system. it pulled off the greatest and fastest economic recovery in recorded human history and did so in less than 7 years. It also led the world in technology, art, philosophy etc..... In fact without NatSoc Germany there wouldve been no space program, no jet aircraft, no rockets etc... so this is quite a bad review for you because you're letting your bias shine through and are inserting your personal agenda into the film then claiming this is the film's intent. The film clearly laid down the foundation that nothing is free in the films universe. in fact the main character goes to prison for not being able to pay his medical bill. that's not socialism but capitalism/corporatism run amok. the film was anti-capitalism if anything..

I was saying this since I was fourteen years old after reading Darwin. My peers thought I was a lunatic for saying that we were staring down the barrel of a loaded gun in evolutionary terms. Looks like I was right.

Most think that Communism is the opposite of National Socialism. In part, it is. But the truth is, Idiocracy is the opposite of both ideologies. It's degeneracy that Communism couldn't dream of accomplishing and the true opposite of all National Socialistic ideals. It's where we are now. Let that last statement sink in.
Armus Skinofevil (3 days ago)
Your analysis has one serious flaw. You assume that the hics are on welfare. Poor people can be employed and hard workers without government assistance. There also is no evidence to support a capitalism v socialism argument. I believe this is your own bias clouding your judgement. The fact that Joe was charged money for healthcare shows that socialism is not a factor. The mega corporations actually demonstrate the end result of capitalism.

atwfnj (4 days ago)
It seems people like to discuss their own interpretation of this movie based on their own political beliefs. I've found good points here against both rampid capitalism and mindless socialism... ... and that's why there needs to be balance in a system. Smart people to balance the dumb ones. This can only happen if there's hardship somewhere in the system for natural selection to favor the intelligent. Or eugenics. We genetically modify our offspring to be smarter and healthier, since selective breeding on the intellectual's side is not fast enough to outweigh the rapid dipshit breeding. Then the smart humans colonize the stars, leaving behind a stinking, dying Earth of crumbling societies, where only the smartest or strongest can make it out. That's one of my theories. It's sad, but possible.

Mostly a summary of the plot with your interpretation of the show tossed in. Not a good review and I don't agree with your view of it. Idiocracy is becoming the 1984 of movies. Everyone looks to it to confirm their own worries in the world. Honestly the movie isn't even that good, but it's alright the first couple of times you see it. I'm just tired of people referencing this movie when we're smarter as a species across the board than we ever have been.
michele Lyons (5 days ago)
You have many good points. One of the biggest threats facing the world today is over-population, and no one wants to deal with it, or even discuss it. It is treated as a god given right if everyone wants to have ten kids. Well, I feel it is a right, if you can afford to feed, clothe and support your ten kids. But it is not your right, if you expect everyone else to support them for you. But no one in our supposedly freely speaking society wants to discuss reproductive responsibility. As our science has advanced, we have eliminated many of the things that served to reduce the human race. As food production, shelter, medicine, etc. become more advanced, there were fewer plagues, famines, and so on, so fewer people died as a direct result. But reproduction did not go down correspondingly. More and more people are supported by society, regardless of whether or not they are capable of supporting themselves or surviving on their own---or returning anything to their society. So what happens when the resources finally run out? While it is unlikely that I will live to see the culmination of this problem, it makes me fear for the future of our society and for the welfare of younger generations. .

Contrary to popular belief a movie that bombs at the box office can actually be profitable. Studios like to recoup their investment as quickly as possible so box office revenue is given lots of attention. But there is the Blu Ray, Video on demand and eventually the TV markets which can actually make more money than the box office. Movies that become classics or get a cult following (like Barbarella, Spartacus, all the Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns, etc...) go on to make money for years, even decades after the original release. https://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/093015/how-exactly-do-movies-make-money.asp

Interesting take, but this movie is clearly more a capitalist than socialist dystopia. Currently the loss of institutions and traditional values in the USA is clearly coming from right wing GOP politics, not left. Further, as seen all over the world, when women are educated and given access to contraception and abortion, birth rates plummet.
At least its better than the 1984 documentary of the leftist sjw timeline

I'd see Judges prior film "Office Space." Indeed, I'd watch all of his stuff. He's got fairly complex views on society. This film isn't really an attack on Socialism as it is an attack on control by consumerism. "Office Space," for example, is a scathing attack on the soulless corporate world. It's one of the best and funniest critiques of modern capitalism I've seen. "Idiocracy," seems more of an indictment of how contemporary society makes it harder for people with a few clues to procreate. With the smart people essentially eliminated, society can take any form it choose in this case it replicates ours; hence, it becomes aimed at the lowest common denominator. Just look at infomercials, the Kardashians, etc. Thus, it's not socialism which is making people dumber. It's pacification and inaction; moreover, the "socialism" we see in this film is via corporate control, to ensure profits for the companies which encourage idiocy. Ah, I could debate this for hours. Needless to say I enjoyed the movie, and I loved the bastardized version's of History with the time machine.

Elitists prevented it from being promoted because they thought this might let the cat out of the bag. They were wrong. The cat came out of the bag and nobody gave a shit and everybody kept acting like retards. and the elitists dismissed it saying "well might ass well make a buck off this failure by releasing to public as a parody.

Ahahah a dumbass talking about a dumbass movie. No, the convergence of state and the private sector does not occur because of the abandoning of free market competition, it occurs because COMPANIES ARE TOO POWERFUL. If anything it's the intensification of capitalism at work here. And that has nothing to do with socialism, that's closer to corporatism from fascist Italy. Read a book for fucks sake.

MegaSudjai (8 days ago)
A good review but I think that you've misread the symbolism behind what Costco and Brando represent completely- these massive companies represent how private corporations can gain and exploit a monopoly within a market if allowed to. They represent capitalism gone wild, assisted by an incompetent government (or one more interested in pandering to their private investors than governing a country with prudent sustainability), and a critique of modern populist politics and the the people who are easily influenced by it. This interpretation explains why Brando stocks plummet, the mass lay-offs, and the subsequent attempted mob lynching of Luke Wilson's character after he made the mistake of giving the crops water and not Brando. I think this movie has proven itself to be quite clairvoyant in the wake of the rise of Trumpism.

"The stupefied population are satiated with hyper consumerism, mindless entertainment, and a culture that pursues instant gratification." and that's the cause of the welfare state how? Sounds more like rampant capitalism to me. I think you're hammering the square peg of the message in this film into the round hole of your personal beliefs here Dave, as with most of your content.

The reality of it is race is the main factor. In terms of eugenics Caucasians have on average IQ of 100-105. Asians have on average IQ of 105-110. Sub Sarharan Africans 70, Hispanics, 75. Race mixing and the browning of America will be the downfall of the west. Look at what is happening in Europe.

Average not static, learn the difference. There are blacks with iq well over 100 and whites with iq under 70, and everything in between for all. I’m gonna burst your bubble here, there are black people in your city, with a much higher iq than you...and there are Asians with a much lower iq.

The one thing I disagree with this is that quality over quantity. I think you can have both quality and quantity in a serious committed marriage monogamy. It requires a return to traditional gender roles and homeschooling to cut out all of the social agenda garbage being pushed in schools today and stick to the math and sciences as well as the communicative Arts of Reading Writing and vocabulary. If you look at many of the founders of the United States many of them we're last-born of families of 6 or 11. I myself have 8 children all of them test much higher then their current grade level and my oldest is currently in nursing school Desiring to become a doctor.
