DON’T LOOK UP (L to R) JENNIFER LAWRENCE as KATE DIBIASKY, LEONARDO DICAPRIO as DR. RANDALL MINDY. Cr. NIKO TAVERNISE/NETFLIX © 2021

OK, no reason to mince words.

This film was a major disappointment.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence and Leo DeCaprio, who are excellent actually despite what they’ve been given to work with, it’s about the discovery of a comet that’s certain to doom earth. Like extinctionn of dinosauer stuff.

And what happens when the duo tries to warn authorities and the populace.

It’s written and directed by Adam McKay, who seriously misses the mark.

I have a theory as to the major conceptual flaw that the endeavor suffers.

To learn more details about the movie and this adroit observation of mine, you’ll need to listen to the podcast below.

    Have to say that Marilyn and I do not agree. We both enjoyed the film for its satire. Yes it was over the top but I don’t know that doing it more subtly would’ve been an improvement. We just enjoyed the ride. All the best and a happy new year to you. Hopefully Nola in 22

    I agree with your assessment C.D. Dazzled by the cast but with a few exceptions there’s not much there there. I kept thinking “is this an attempt at ‘Dr. Strangelove’?” I’d have to watch Strangelove again to see if it feels as forced as this Don’t Look Up does.

    I agree… it was a rent payer for j law
