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.
