Don’t Look Up: Comet Will DESTROY Earth! Climate Change SATIRE? Or COVID Virtue-Signalling?
Here’s the link for my Patreon page:
Newest Mindgasms Movie Chat with Scazio AKA Sheezan Alamgir, and the Woke Centrist AKA Dusty Cubes AKA Dustin Cubit on “Don’t Look Up.” It’s the new satire on Netflix starring Leonardo Dicaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Jonah Hill, Cate Blanchet and Meryl Streep. Dicaprio and Lawrence play scientists who discover a comet that is headed on a path straight for Earth, and is big enough to destroy all life. Unfortunately, no one in power seems to want to do anything to stop it because they only care about celebrity drama, money, fame, sex and tribalism. The movie is a hilarious and obvious analogy to the apparent lack of care about climate change in global elites, and reflects the sentiment of many huge problems in our current popular culture. However, some people are critical of it because they think it’s hypocritical for filthy rich people like Leonardo Dicaprio to be scolding us about the science of climate change, while hurting the environment and palling around with even more wealthy people like Jeff Bezos on his yacht. Another similar criticism is that the film’s message could be easily seen as a virtue-signalling analogy for COVID vaccine skeptics/vaccine hesitant people refusing to accept the science.
Check out my last Mindgasms Movie Chat with Scazio AKA Sheezan Alamgir, Tubin AKA Chris James, and the Woke Centrist AKA Dusty Cubes AKA Dustin Cubit on the Snyder cut of Justice League, Zack Snyder’s second attempt with more artistic freedom than the theatrical edition. He left the original project about halfway through it, due to his daughter’s sudden suicide. His Snyder cut is an epic four-hour long movie that a lot of nerds appreciate much more than the theatrical version. We give our opinions about it. A few improvements seem to be the increased character development of the Flash and Cyborg, more detailed world building, hierarchy of villains with Darkseid at the top instead of just Steppenwolf, and look at the dark DC alternate timeline.
