Don't Look Up

In my opinion the best and most important movie of the last ten or so years. Brilliant satire. This is our Dr. Strangelove. The final defense against these vile people (Trump supporters, Covid deniers, Anti Vaxxers, climate change deniers) is to ridicule them, and laugh at them. See them as the ridiculous creatures they are.

My God, Cate Blanchett was unrecognizable as the Mika-type "news anchor." Loved that JLaw, once she realized the earth was doomed, got on that hot Timothee Chalamet dick. And what a dream to be in the backseat with Timmy and have Leo driving. But I digress.

Adored this movie. Should be seen by every American. Though 48% won't get it.

You had me until "that hot Timothee Chalamet dick" - that made me lol.

Sounds like a great movie in spite of that!

People who enjoy watching hours of MSNBC will enjoy this movie. It' like being repeatedly hit over the head with one of Joy Reid's wig-boxes.

One if the best, efficient and funny, commentaries on the same subject was this one scene in the HBO Show Avenue 5. It's actually hilarious. It takes place in the future where space ships are basically cruise ships for three month trips around space. Except Avenue 5 gets knocked off of course and three months turns into 6, into years. People are freaking out and actually begin to believe they haven't left space and this is all just a charade - they refuse to believe what they witness with their own eyes. This show came out before COVID and was way ahead of it's time in this perspective.

I particularly enjoyed Meryl's face... I mean Meryl's character's face, mauled off at the end.

Hahaha oh Glen.

I really think this was brilliant satire. Blew me the fuck away.

Couldn't agree more, OP! It is funny, smart and touching. Obviously, it's about global warming and the fact that we're all avoiding the disaster barreling toward us. It uses satire brilliantly to highlight difficult and dark issues.

It was the best movie of the year.

You have no taste.

I liked it but thought it was way too long. They could have easily trimmed 30-40 minutes and not affected a thing. Chalamet’s character didn’t add anything and though I liked his final speech they could have given it to someone else. They could have let Rob Morgan have another moment. His presence in the final scene felt forced anyway.

R11 Oh yeah? What's your favorite movie?

R12 I just loved the notion that this introverted girl who tried to save the doomed world while everyone else turned their backs was rewarded with Timothee's hot wiener.

it was better than i thought. it was a little long, but i liked it enough to think about it a few days after watching

When a problem becomes so absurdly large, and people are so obtuse regarding it, satire becomes one of the few effective means of sounding an alarm. Not unlike Stanley Kubrick's brilliant Dr. Strangelove, this movie did it PERFECTLY.
