  1. The movie Idiocracy is different than others, because this film shows us a future society without values, without culture…
    I think that this film reflects some current behaviors, which slowly are settling between us. Some examples of this situation are disrespect and little empathy.
    Young people today have to try to change some of our attitudes similar to this movie.
    Personally, I hope this movie never comes true, althought today’s society is very similar to the plot of this movie.

    I think the film is amazing because it is very fun and curious. The film expresses a reality which can happen in a few years. Moreover, i belive that this reality is happening in some American countries.
    In my opinion, allí this is due to people don’t use new technologies in a properly way. Also, se read online some fake news which can damge use. Finally, there are a los of students who leave their studies because of look internet.

    • Idiocracy
      Idiocracy is a movie about a failed military experiment, officer Joe and Rita wake up five hundred years ahead in the future, in a dystopian world in which natural selection has favored the most idiots, because they reproduce more. This has resulted in a stupid and ignorant humanity, so that Joe discovers that he is the smartest man on the planet. He soon becomes a close advisor to the President of the United States.
      In my opinion this movie is very funny and interesting.
      I think that this is really going to happen, but not yet, there are still a few years to go to get there, but with what is happening today we can already perceive that it could happen. For example drones, we thought it was impossible and now it is almost something used every day.

  3. Idiocracy conclusion:

    From this film I draw the conclusion that as time goes by, the human race is losing its intellectual faculties. I think that this is due to the fact that human beings are making less and less effort to achieve things, so by using their heads less and not using them as much, they atrophy.

  4. First of all, I have to say that the movie is very funny, I like it because it shows some aspects of our society in which we are living. The film Idiocracy is different from others, because this film shows aspects that are established in our day to day. To prevent this from happening we have to stop to think and change the situation we are in before it is too late, we have to be more respectful and more responsible to all people. In my opinion, I think this is affecting us today, but we do not give it importance because we are lazy and we go through everything, but in the long run this is going to affect us a lot.

  6. «Idiocracy» is a very interesting film, as well as fun, with many facts to take into account, such as: the explanation of how the world could end up like this (he explains it in the film, and says that it is a fact of natural selection), as only the most useless humans reproduced, and intelligent people became extinct. I believe this will never happen in real life, but if it does, it will be within a long period of time. Then the fact that a machine is invented to preserve people for many years without degrading bodies, that can lead to good and bad events, but it would be a great advance in real life if people could be preserved during so long.

  7. Hello! I really liked the Idiocracy movie, it seems to me that it is a reality that will happen in the near future, in the movie it says that it will happen in two thousand five hundred but I think it will happen sooner. I recommend watching this movie because it is very entertaining and it is something that will happen. ‘
    In conclusion, if you have not seen this movie, I recommend it to you and I hope you like it as much as I do and in a few years we will see if what it says in the movie will happen.

  10. This film tells about a girl and a boy who join a military experiment in which they slept for 15 years, and when they woke up they found a totally different society from the one they had known.

    My favorite part is when they put Joe in the government because his intelligence stands out from the rest and his assistant is his lawyer Frito, they ask him to solve the problem of growing crops and Joe manages to do it only by changing the energy drink for water.

    I really liked this movie, it has a lot to do with the present, some of the things that happen in the film’s society are very similar, even the same as those that happen in our society,

  11. Idiocracy is a 2006 motion picture comedy, directed by Mike Judge. This comedy denounces American culture, which is portrayed as anti-intellectual, insensitive to the environment, consumerist, obese, saturated by marketing, violent, dominated by large corporations, a gun lover and a junk food fanatic.
    They apologize to a hypothetical form of government controlled by people of low intellect, since the term idiocracy in English or idiocracia in Spanish refers to the combination of the Greek words ιδιωτης ‘idiocy’, and κράτος, ‘kratos’, power.
    I think this could happen, but there is still time, there are a few years to get there and I don’t think I will have to live that. But with what is happening today we can already see what could happen.

  12. In my opinion, it is a funny and funny movie that talks about what can happen in a few years. In this society there are people similar to the one in the movie, I think we should change our attitude so as not to end up like those people.
    I have laughed a lot with the film but I also worry about the future where people, instead of progressing, regress to the point of stupidity.

  13. Idiocracy.
    This film shows us a future society in which people are not at all intelligent and are very idiot.
    I believe that the film teaches us this because in our current society, some people have similar behaviours, haven’t respect, haven’t education, haven’t values … and it teaches us this so that we can change behaviours that can gradually make us something similar.
    In my opinion, the situation of the film is very extreme, but in our society there are some similar behaviours, and in the future, people will still look more like the film.

    I liked the movie a lot, because it talks about reality
    500 years from now, I think this will happen before 500 years, I think it will be 50 or 100 years from now because, people no longer study, they leave studies at an early age, he only knows how to party and no longer wants to learn anything

  15. Idiocraphy.
    The movie that we have seen I liked how they represent it because I really believe that this will happen shortly because people have less and less desire to learn new things, and the evolution of technology is another reason why I think we will end this way. This worries me because if we don’t find a solution now to avoid it, worse things will surely come.

  16. I belive that this film is very entretaining however it in plot doesn´t make much sense.
    I think this could happen in our societyy because tere are a lot of ignorat people who could destroy the economy of our society. It is very probably that our society live this situation in the future. But on the orther hand, there are intelligent people who can control our society and help it to have an imporant economy and save the planet of ignorat people

  17. I liked this film because i think It represents what in some years will happen in our planet if we don’t do something for avoid It. The film represents two persons who travel 500 years in the future and they are considered the most inteligent people in the world because the people of the world won’t know nothing in the future. I think the society in this film is more ignorant. In my opinion the film is great.

  18. The movie doesn’t hide its message, showing how, slowly, the people will become more and more stupid, uncultured, dependent of technology and, the worst of all, easy to manipulate and convince.

    Obiusly this is showed in the film with humor and exaggerations, like making every media of entretaiment and scientific advance focussed in sex or violence, also, can we have a moment to talk about of the dark inplications of making the rehabilitation a whole show of monstertracks?

    And at the last, I want to point out two more things, how the activities of everyone are registred with the use of the tatoos and the fact of how many marks have take the control of the diet of everyone like Carl Jr’s or that energy drink being the replecament of the water.

  19. The movie «idiocracy» is a movie in which very rare people come out and at the highest level of idiocy that a person can have, they are eating garbage, they like to see people kill each other live, the president does nothing beneficial for the city, they discriminate against the different, in the hospital you are attended by a machine and the city is shit. I think in the near future there will be people like that, although today there are already people like that.

  20. In my opinion , this movie is very interesting sinceit shows some behaviors that are very similar to today’s society. I belive that we would have to change because otherwiseit could affect our future and the bad thing about all this is that if we do not change it could be very soon. Finally , to finish , I want to say that this movie would have to be seen by everyone and to prevent what may happen in the not too distant future from happening.

  22. Idiocracy is a film in which American society is criticized for being anti-intellectual. It’s not a great movie, but it has a lot of joke scenes. In this one, a useless man awakens to a future in which idiots rule, so he feels smart.
    In this movie they mix humor with reality, and in a silly way it makes us reflect on our future, a near future.
    As I have said before, this comedy makes you reflect and realize that every day we are more idiotic. In my opinion this is true, since every day we let technology use us more, making us useless. Idiocracy warns us that as if we continue like this, the future that awaits us is very similar to that of the movie, so we must act quickly.

    Is an film for make see and make us reflect on how could be the human in the future, if we came back idiots,

    In the actually need an minimum of knowledge that it’s stay in Eso, if it’s stops being this the new generations we would become idiots an we would depend only the technology. It’s curious how an film can make us reflect about an future.

    In my opinion it’s very good since it plasma the actually society’s degeberation, it has a lot of details that make us laugh, and think. Apart from the fact that at some moment think »what idiocy is this» the film is wery good, very entertaining, and the perfect film if you want to have a laugh.

  24. I am going to write about the film «Idiocracy» which was recording in 2006 [not necessary].
    In my view, society is reflected in the film.
    On the one hand, I want to talk about freedom. In the film, we can see that they have controlled everyone by a barcode. It allowed them to locate all people who use [by using] sensors.
    The same thing happens in our society. The only difference is that we do not have a barcode tattooed on us, but we have different things, such as the mobile phones, that indirectly take away our freedom.
    We are not aware of how little freedom we have, just like the protagonist of the film who did not know that barcode was going to have him so controlled.
    On the other hand, we can see in the film that they follow trends. For instance, watering crops with isotonic drink, it does not make any sense. However, the same thing happens in society, we follow trends and we allow ourselves to be influenced very easily, doing things that we do not always have sense.
    In addition to this, when we are influenced, it is very difficult to realize that we are doing things wrong. The same thing happened in the film, they did not believe that the crops would grow when watering with water.
    In conclusion, the film is really good to compare it with our society.

  25. I think, idiocracy is an interesting film. After watching this film, i realized that the society can change in a moment. I felt very disappointed because i discovered that the planet can be controlled by stupid and idiot people. I believe that this silly society can be dangerous because It could finish with the intelligence life in the planet. In my opinion the technology is positive for the society but in this case the technology controls all people’s life, so they don’t need to think. On the other hand, Joe and Rita, who had been frozen for an experiment, desfrost and noticed that the new society os ignorant. So, they want to return the intelligence to the society.

  27. Idiotcrazy is an interesting and funny film.
    The film invites us to think about a possible future not so far away , nobody wants these future but nobody does anything to change it. The film is a criticism of American society but it can be seen in another country. The most important thing about that society is the ignorance.
    The author sends us a message through a comedy.

  28. This movie shows us how the people of the future becomes more and more foolish because of technology, they speak a strange language other than now, and they are easy to convince.
    In the same way, you can see how they control people through a tattoo on their wrist, a barcode. That already gives an idea of ​​how we are going to be in the future, controlled wherever we go.
    In the film you can see how they no longer use water for almost nothing, if not that they use soft drinks.
    In conclusion, the film teaches us a way to see how we could be in the future if we paid attention to technologies, and let ourselves be influenced by them.

  30. From my point of view, Idiocracy is a very interesting film, although this film has made me ask myself some questions such as, will our future be similar to that of the film?

    I think that it will not be literally like that but it will not be how we imagine it full of robots and everything well organized, I think we will get worse as a society but not until we get to have a jail like the one in the movie or the «water» they drink in the movie.

    Finally, I liked the movie because it is about a really horrible future but with humor and that is what makes it entertaining.

  31. opinion on idiocracy movie: idiocracy is not a normal movie, as it talks about a trip to the future, but the future is not as you imagine it, it is much worse, the movie helps you to reflect on the future of the u anity, on what you want and what you should do in the future, helps you to reflect on whether or not you want the world to be like this in the future or if you want it to be a world without toxicity and bad things, it also teaches you that there are many things They are not solved from one day to the next, but they need their time, for example the vegetation in the film did not grow from one minute to the next, but it took a while, because everything takes its time. It also helps to reflect on politics, because I think nobody wants a president who kills you with a truck for not making things happen from one second to the next. But above all, it helps you tell yourself what you want to do, whether to be a person with a future, intelligent and with a job or to be useless who does not even know how to count to 20.

  32. opinion about the film ideocracy: Ideocracy is not a normal film since it talks about an unexpected future in which a deplorable world is presented due to big companies and low studies this film makes you think about whether you want a world in which the vast majority of people have a much lower than normal IQ. It also helps you to reflect on the policy that not for doing something not well seen at the time they send you to rehabilitation which is a game in which two trucks chase you to death in my opinion is a fun and simple movie but with a context that which makes you think about whether you should study or go through it all.

  33. The film shows us a future full of people without culture or without studies, but when Joe appears they think he is the smartest person in the world (although they almost killed him) and show how a normal person can become the smartest in that universe. In my opinion the film can happen if we continue not to give so much importance to study, the film is an exaggeration, but I think we could reach something similar in the future.

  34. this film is too funny and it can be one of the futures of the humanity, I think that the situation of the film may not happen in our future since there are still many more people who want to study, yea, I know some people don’t want to study but that will never change because they want to get a shit job, earn only the minimum money, I have hope in this humanity that we will not end up like this.
    Thanks for read and bye bye.
