Movie Review: “Don’t Look Up”




Astronomy graduate student and Ph.D. candidate at Michigan State, Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence), was looking at the stars for her own research when she spotted a comet!

Checking the trajectory, she decided to call Professor Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) in to take a look and verify her findings.

Sure enough, a very large comet….over 6 miles long…..was headed straight to Earth!

Yikes!

A comet this big is an “Earth killer” and will wipe out life as we know it when (not if…..the scientific proof is there and it WILL hit Earth in 6 months) it hits.

Trouble is…..no one cares, and no one is listening: Starting at the top with the President (Meryl Streep) and her dumb-ass son (Jonah Hill)…..and goes all the way down to you and me.

No one cares! They only care about trivial stuff on social media. WTF?

WAIT!

This movie is not about a comet hitting Earth!

Well….it is…..but, the bigger picture is a commentary on: The Orange idiot and his dumb-ass followers (complete with a three word chant), science deniers, social media, news media, and on and on. Hey…..we live in a really f’cked up world.

But, unlike climate change which is slow, unrelenting, but barely visible to the deniers, the comet eventually shows itself then…….

Oh, to find out what happens you can watch this movie on Netflix.

In the meantime (especially the orange idiot followers)…..watch this video made by DiCaprio several years ago (and based on SCIENCE)….scary as shit.



“Don’t Look Up” is scary as shit but not for the reasons you may think on a cursory level. The scary shit…..is us!

Go to IMDb for more information.


Drive Safe! Never Forget.
