    For all its faults, the Biden administration have made some efforts towards addressing Covid and climate change.

    Well… in light of Build Back Better & the strange notes of surprise about Omicron, I’m not sure we can say that anymore but lol yeah ofc the bar is WAY too low & yes the efforts to put it into the bill in the first place were there so… yeah.

    Tbh if I’m honest, Meryl Streep was handed a Selina Meyer role in a different garb and it didn’t work. Susan Orlean is basically a less interesting Selina Meyer. There’s really not much else there.

    I liked this more than I thought I would. I disliked the editing and the lack of subtleness, but it was funny and had some inspired ideas. J-Law, Leonardo DiCaprio and Cate Blanchett were great. Meryl not so much, though.

    I’d give it a 7/10. Not deserving of any Oscar noms, but definitely worth a watch.

    DON’T LOOK UP????????

    DON’T LOOK AT THE SCREEN!!!!!!!!!!!

     

    This movie actually had me thinking with it’s supposed all-star cast that it would be entertaining or half-way decent. IT WAS NEITHER!

    THE BIGGEST DISSAPOINTMENT OF THE YEAR!

    The plot and story is so stupid that it doesn’t even try to challenge the climate change theory it’s supposed to be about. The characters just go on monotonously preaching about the end of the world with nobody even learning anything in or out of the movie. The end was so fake and cheesy. THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IN REAL LIFE!

    As for the acting, WOW……………

    THIS MOVIE DESEVERS EVERY RAZZIE POSSIBLE.

    THE CHARACTERS WERE SO ANNOYING, DULL, AND LAME.

    MERYL STREEP WAS THE BIGGEST DISSAPOINTMENT AS A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! Her character was not funny, grand, insightful, motivational or a leader in anyway. Did I mention NOT FUNNY…AT ALL!

    Cate Blanchette was embarrassingly disgusting playing a news reporter who actually stoops low to a whore level dim-wit as the world is ending trying to sleep with any guy she can get her hands on. EWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!

    JONAH HILL….HAS ZERO TALENT!

    His character was so lame and stupid they actually edited his scene from the trailer and removed it in the final movie. The SIT TIGHT AND ASSESS SCENE WAS TRIMMED DOWN FROM WHAT THEY SHOWED IN THE TRAILER. I THINK IT PROVES THAT THEY GOT NEGATIVE FEEDBACK BECAUSE THAT WHOLE SCENE WASN’T FUNNY!

    THE RAZZIE FOR WORST SUPPORTING ACTOR GOES TO MARK RYLANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Who should even get credit for how bad the performance was? The writer or actor? I guess since his character was horrible the actor deserves credit!

    His character type of a Mark Zuckerberg/Steve Jobs/Jeff Bezos is so bad it’s unreal.

    HE IS LITERALLY ACTING IN ANOTHER MOVIE. HIS PERFOMANCE IS NOT GROUNDED AT ALL AND HAS ZERO SUBSTANCE OF ANY KIND OF WEIGHT THAT THE MOVIE CAN USE! THE WORST PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR DEFINETELY!!!!

    ARIANA GRANDE IS JUST AS AWFUL!

    HER CHARACTER, WHOSE NAME (RILEY BINA) IS THE MOST LEAST REALISTIC POP STAR NAME EVER IS ALSO ONE OF THE WORST CHARACTERS IN A MOVIE.

    Are we really supposed to believe her image would be used to help people in a doomsday event? What is her song and image about exactly? Don’t look up? That doesn’t even make sense. I had zero respect for her character and especially now zero respect as an actress. The scene where she tells Leo’s character to GO F*** OFF because he’s old was not funny at all and extremely tasteless. ARIANA GRANDE DESERVES THE RAZZIE!

    THE TWO LEADS ARE ALSO BLAND. JENNIFER LAWERENCE IS SO MISCAST IT’S RIDICULOUS. LEO ALSO SEEMS MISCAST DUE TO EVERY CAST MEMBER AROUND HIM BEING NOT UP TO PAR. DON’T LOOK UP IS ONE OF THE WORST WASTED ENSEMBLES EVER, A TRUE JOKE!!!!!!!! YET THE TWO STARS GOT TWENTY MILLION IF NOT AS MUCH EACH!!! TWENTY MILLION FOR THIS MOVIE???? THAT’S GARBAGE. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DON’T LOOK UP!!!!!!!!!!!! WAKEEEEEEEEE UPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!

    FINALLY. I THOUGHT THE END WOULD HAVE SOME COOL STATE OF THE ART EXPENSIVE VISUAL EFFECTS……NOTHING ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING MEMORABLE FROM THE VISUAL EFFECTS TO THE SCORE.

    THE FACT THAT I SAW THIS IN THE THEATER WAS SO SAD BECAUSE OF HOW TERRIBLE THE MOVIE INDUSTRY IS FOR PRODUCING TRASH LIKE DON’T LOOK UP. THIS MOVIE ACCOMPLISHES NOTHING IT SETS OUT TO DO. IT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN WRITTEN, LET ALONE MADE!

    Now I may be wrong, correct me if I am but did this person…

    Who joins a forum in 2019 and goes more than 2 years without posting, only to unload a first post on a some “poor” movie in 2021?

    The thing is…The characters was supposed to be that way. That’s why it is a satire. Janie Orlean is not a motivational leader because that’s how she was written. Are these people thinking? This is why I hate a lot of people here. You are pointing out the obvious reasons why they call this movie a comedy and go rant about it because they were written like that. Go watch Argo or Zero Dark Thirty if you want a serious political movie.

    That rant reminds me of the Leo breakdown in live tv.

    Funnily this is the 2nd Orlean Streep has played (Susan Orlean in Adaptation. I wonder what means).

    Well ignore the rant. For me it was basically a Selina Meyer role and I think… it was maybe just a bit too broad? Hey I liked the film a lot, the satire is cutting and balanced very well with the slapstick and the sheer tragedy of it all, and it’s exhausting on purpose, which I like a LOT. I’m guessing Orlean was a David Sirota inspired character and let’s just say I don’t particularly find the character entirely insightful or new because we saw it done better on Veep. If anything I’d have preferred her to go full on rampaging.

    Drug abuse at this time of year is a real problem.

    Bill Hader and Barry in everything (2 babka)
    The Great - Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and comedy writing and directing

    Severance in drama series, writing, Adam Scott for best actor, Ben Stiller for drama directing, and the whole cast in supporting.

    Anyway, I watched this a few hours ago. Leo was the standout, and I really liked Rob Morgan and Melanie Lynskey. I thought Chalamet was pretty good considering his limited screen time.

    Don’t understand the Lawrence love. She came off as forced to me. I don’t understand how she got $25 million for this role but that’s another topic.

    The jokes were hit or miss, the tone was a bit all over the place but when I paused it at 1 hour 47 minutes in I was surprised – it didn’t feel that long. Loved the dinner scene but the end credits scene kind of ruined the ending a bit.

    I can see Leo getting that 5th slot in Actor. I’ve got Dinklage for now but I’m not confident in his chances.
