    This movie is on Comedy Central right now. I believe that it paints a grim reality of our true future, and it is very funny.

    When someone says, 'this is 2013, we're supposed to be more enlightened', I think we're not more enlightened, we're one day closer to Idiocracy.

    I don't see any other contenders put up here to dispute my claim.

    ... And there was a time in this country, a long time ago, when reading wasn't just for fags and neither was writing. People wrote books and movies, movies that had stories so you cared whose ass it was and why it was farting, and I believe that time can come again!

    I watched Pandorum last night for the first time, and it was pretty good.

    The years passed, mankind became stupider at a frightening rate. Some had high hopes the genetic engineering would correct this trend in evolution, but sadly the greatest minds and resources where focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections.

    I love this shit. Every line is a gem. It shows the totally corporate owned government and the stupid ass populace that allowed it to happen. This is the truth of the future.

    i'm not a scifi fan, & i consider this movie more of a social commentary type of documentary:c. its a great movie, thanks for the heads up. its always one of those movies i can never pass up. it sort of reminds me of woody allens bannanas from what i remember of it anyway.

    well i dont think it's sci fi. it's basically a docudrama because we are racing towards it at lightspeed.
