I feel like I should start with one of my favorite movies of all time: Idiocracy!
This movie came out back in 2006, and I was just starting high school. I remember hanging out with a friend, and he told me he had rented this movie over the weekend and that it was hilarious. My sense of humor back then was a bit different than it is now, but I will never forget the first time I watched this movie. Non-stop laughs the entire way through. I had to pause it multiple times because I couldn't hear over my own laughs.
The movie beings with Joe Bowers, a Private in the military, and Rita, a prostitute, being cryogenically frozen as part of an army experiment. They're supposed to be woken up in one year, but the project is cancelled and they are somehow forgotten. 500 years pass, and the collective IQ of humanity drops, until Joe and Rita awaken in this dumb future, unaware that so much time has passed.
I can't stress enough how amazing this move is. It's quotable, funny, and scariest of all, could be a glimpse into our real-life future if things don't change soon.
Also, Dax Shepard and Terry Crews make this movie what it is. Great. And it's directed by Mike Judge, who brought us Office Space and King of the Hill.
