So apparently the high-quality commentary you’ve come to expect from this blog has been replaced by me just posting trailers for terrible films.
No really. That’s hilarious. The dystopian straw man political party have the worst slogan I have encountered. “When WE provide for every need, YOU are fully developed.” It does not exactly roll off the tongue. The creepy old white guy that heads up the fake political party should really fire his slogan writer.
Adorably overwrought synthesized score? Check.
Oblique and inappropriate references to the Hunger Games? Check.
Symbol that could easily be mistaken for advertisement for the Olympics? Check.
Ronald Reagan quote? Check. Oh how very check.
This does win for most sinister use of QR codes, however. So there’s that.
I’d like to think that the “we just become passive people waiting in lines” is a witty jab at the British and their professional-level queuing skills, but I honestly cannot look at this and imagine its makers possessed the necessary cultural awareness for that level of irony.
This is supposedly the trailer for a longer film. I want to see it. I want to liveblog it. Yea though it has the potential to cause facepalm-induced brain damage, I am drawn to bad movies like a moth to the flame. (And then I sit down and watch them and keeping thinking, “What the fuck is wrong with me.” Seriously guys I need help.)
