  • I'm halfway through Don't Look Up and half the cast is punchable, this is an on-the-nose movie.

    I love it.


    *edit* What a great film. It nailed it, and of course the "media" is gonna hate the accurate thrashing they took in it.

    I almost missed Chris Evans cameo. Brilliant sendup of Amageddon-esque films.

    Also, Jonah Hill's post credit scene was *chefs kiss*.

        That's been on our list as well. I can't believe someone managed to do it. It's such an incredible achievement. I can't even fathom how much that cost.

            Wasn't he playing an actor promoting an Armageddon-like disaster film whilst "both-sidesing" the controversy by saying the national discourse had gotten too divisive? The 'Devin Peters' guy.

            EDIT: Yeah, that's it.

            I thought the movie was solid. A little on-the-nose with its satire, but what can I say? We live in interesting times. The worst and most confusing character for me was the Bash CEO, who was clearly too inept to be leading his own company or have anyone take him seriously, and I assume was an attempt to create an amalgamated character that spoofed both Elon Musk and Dump.

            I could see elements of both Network and Primary Colors in this movie, along with topical humor from our current timeline.

              I didn't recognize him, but my god that scene.

              I don't think the actors playing in the movie realized how perfectly and deeply they were being destroyed. The Ariane Grande concert was the most brutal indictment of celebutards I have seen since Day of the Locust.

                        • No Time to Die. B-

                          Good to see Craig go out on a decent note after a string of really bad Bonds.

                          Spoilers:

                          Premise was fine. The plot itself is such a meaningless hodgepodge I stopped worrying about it about 45 minutes in. I think Malek was wasted with bad writing.

                          The Mabuse references to Blofeld in prison were excellent and I would have like to have seen that developed more. Even though the Magik Eye was ****ing stupid I forgave them since it served an excellent purpose.

                          The love interest was about 14 years old, and it was pretty tough watching an apparently 70-year old Bond slobbering all over her.

                          The kid was cute. It's a cliche device more worthy of a franchise like Indiana Jones but whatevs.

                          Q's Muppet Baby cuteness is such a Disney/MCU note it really jarred.

                          Loved the opening sequence. Loved the revival of "James Bond will be back" in the closing credits.

                          The passing reference to the Blofeld brother theory was hilariously done.

                          The toss of the visitor badge into Moneypenny's trash was also a perfect note.

                          I hope they replace Fiennes, he's ghastly.

                          Poor Felix, how many times he gotta die?

                          And as always, pure cinematographic porn. So beautiful, especially the Italy sequences.

                              I thought I heard mixed reviews of Don't Look Up, but I may give it a shot. Netflix seems to be the king of "eh, this isn't that terrible" movies with big name casts as of late.
                              Don’t Look Up - I really enjoyed it. McKay pretty well skewered everybody. It’s sad that they just had to make Trumpers look stupid was to show them what doing what they do, the same thing for the Fox News parody.
