Mike Judge Returns!

1

April 10, 2009 by MK

One of the most criminally-underrated writer-directors is back, this time with the once criminally-underrated himself, Jason Bateman.  Dig Extract:

Looks awesome, like everything else Judge has done.  Which leads us to the most criminally-underrated chapter in Judge’s career:  Idiocracy.  In a showing of everlasting wisdom, 20th Century Fox buried the movie for years, then finally released it on a limited basis without any promotion whatsoever.  Maybe it had something to do with the film’s anti-corporate message, in which society deteriorates so badly over the years that the energy drink Brawndo replaces water as the go-to liquid of choice, up to and including crop cultivation.  And the #1 rated show on TV is “OW!  My Balls!”

Do yourself (and the criminally-underrated one) a favor while we wait for Extract.  Rent Idiocracy —  84 minutes of cult classic comedy.
