    It’s a Netflix movie. It does not matter one bit what general audiences think of the movie because general audiences only need to play three minutes of the movie for Netflix to count it towards viewership numbers, and even then no one has access to those numbers so they can just say it’s a hit and no one can contradict them.

    Netflix doesn’t care if people watch their movies for 3 minutes. They care that people subscribe to their service. And this will be their biggest subscriber draw of the year. What general audiences think about this movie is extremely important, because they want general audiences to subscribe to Netflix to be able to watch this movie. So they’re going to sell it like a hilarious comedy with the biggest stars in the world.

    Even as someone who liked The Big Short and thought Vice was decent

    I don’t think I can explain fully how much Vice and WoWS in particular rubbed me the wrong way because no one wants to hear my treatises when there’s whole articles explaining my viewpoint. TL;DR: there’s a line between vicious satire and glorification, and for me both films crossed that line.

    But I loved The Big Short. I don’t think the Don’t Look Up script raised any real moral issues for me, I highly doubt it’ll be divisive in the way Vice was. The only risk DLU runs of being “divisive” is if people think it’s good/bad, though I guess Streep has a big responsibility in the film.

    As a former scientist though, I hope the new script actually makes fun of scientists (not in an anti-science way ofc). Scientists are often remarkably spineless when it comes to stopping politicians from doing bad things lol.

    i don’t think it’s a slapstick/beast comedy, adam himself defined the film as a satire

    I don’t know what people are talking about, but none of the lines in the teaser are in the script. I just checked. Looks like the movie is going to differ from that initial draft.

    When the Venice lineup was announced, The Playlist’s Gregory Ellwood tweeted that Dune premiering out of competition was a red flag. Why? Are films that screen out of competition considered bad? If I’m not mistaken, ASIB screened out of competition at Venice in 2018. Or is the decision to screen out/in competition just a studio call and nothing to do with quality?

    I also asked this on the DLU thread but since mostly only fans of that film are posting there: was David Sirota always part of this film??? I don’t remember his name being on the script and it kinda has to be. I’m so so so much more excited now because if he joined late, it’ll be….a lot more leftist. Probably also more divisive but to be fair I don’t really care if it pisses off liberals lol. I’d rather the movie be awesome than it be Oscar nominated, though for many other reasons I think it’ll probably be fine.

    The description of Dune by Venice festival is a bigger red flag. It skips the quality of movie and simply highlights the visuals.

    Yes I noticed that. They made it sound like a tech contender more than a BP movie.

    I think it’s Warner’s regular procedure. Joker was supposed to premiere out of competition too, Todd Phillips had to work hard to convince the studio to go in competition instead.

    Because the accomplishments in the visual field are just that impressive, imo. Nothing against the quality of the rest of the film. WB isn’t doing the Joker technique if they don’t have confidence it’s more than a tech contender. And it is. I’m perfectly confident about that.
