Idiocracy (2006)

Idiocracy is the movie about a guy that is average in every possible way that is subject to an Army experiment gone 100% wrong. When the man in charge gets arrested for trying to run a prostitution ring the base is shut down and the project is lost, for about 500 years.

When Joe Bauers (Luke Wilson) wakes up with his fellow experiment victim, Rite (Maya Rudolph) he discovers a world where being completely average would make you the smartest person on Earth.

This seen kind of explains it all really. Brawndo is basically Gatorade by the way. The entire movie actually comes across as sort of a warning. It was funny in 2006 when I first saw it, but now it seems like more of a warning. The performances are great and the movie is hilariously funny but not in the traditional laugh out loud funny.

Most of the funny parts of the movie come from recognizing that many of these people are kind of realistic but in a greatly exaggerated way. Nobody is actually this stupid, but we all know that guy that just doesn’t get it.

The movie is well written and if you have Hulu is worth checking out this cult classic. It is far from perfect obviously, but it is thought-provoking and interesting and one of those hidden gems. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

A Hidden Life Trailer

A Hidden Life is another movie coming out that is based on a true story. This one about a man that refused to be a Nazi. A literal Nazi by the way, in Germany during World War 2 this isn’t a metaphor or anything like that. He is taken from his family, tortured and beaten and refuses to do what he sees as wrong. The trailer seems cool, tho it won’t be a movie for everyone. I look forward to it hitting Netflix or Hulu personally. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Endgame Writer Explains Why There Was No Thanos/Hulk Rematch

ScreenRant recently talked about how co-writer of Avengers Endgame Stephen McFeely finally answered the question of why we never got to see that Hulk vs Thanos rematch many of us looked forward to. As one of the people that was initially annoyed by this I have to admit, it makes a lot of sense. The general idea is simple. After the snap, he learned to be more one with the Hulk and became Smart Hulk as the MCU calls him. Because of this, it was no longer a driving force for him to fight Thanos or anyone else.

That is it, that is why we never got our rematch. Because Smart Hulk had no desire to fight him again. Now while this does make sense, I will admit I still would have enjoyed seeing this. Going forward tho smart hulk can be quite fun to watch. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Rock, Vin Diesel and Jason Statham Can’t lose fights

Yes, you read that right, according to Screenrant all three have contract stipulations that forbid them from losing fights, and even have a clause that dictates how many times they can be punched in a movie. This isn’t really all that odd tho, the internet is full of examples of stars having things, both odd and not so odd in their contracts. It does seem a bit odd tho, and maybe even egotistical to have such a thing written in there tho. To each their own tho. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
