Why I will not watch the film Idiocracy

People tell me that I must see the film Idiocracy.

People I respect and think are really smart tell me how great the film is.

Then you hear people comparing the real world to the world portrayed in the movie. “See — Idiocracy is true”. That kind of thing.

However, I hear the same thing from people I think are dumb, or those I just disagree with. They are applying their own social/political filter to the film and they see what they want.

So what we have is a film that everyone thinks is speaking from their point of view. I’m not really interested in that, so I’ll never watch the film.

  1. I assume you would normally consider recommendations of people you respect and not consider recommendations of those you don’t like. So where do you end up on this last possibility?
