Rent Idiocracy and Weekend Links
So you can finally rent Idiocracy this weekend, so do it. I'm definitely buying myself a copy. I've hyped this film to no end over the past few months, but check out this recent Slate article praising the film. It's the most intelligent review I've read on Idiocracy film yet.
