Don’t Look Up is a movie that is sure to upset political parties on both sides which it already has amongst the critics I’ve seen throw a hissy fit about it on Facebook.
I however, loved that it wasn’t conventional and made with cookie cutter lenses, Adam McKay probably took this film to Netflix so he would be able to take bold swings at people which no other studio would even dare to during the golden age of Cancel Culture.
Leonardo DiCaprio is passionate about his political stances, so it makes sense he would be a part of a movie like Don’t Look Up, where it mirrors the universe we currently live in. With people not believing in a catastrophic plague like ending of the world. Also some other stuff Adam and company poke fun at todays world may be a bit much for people.
However, it’s refreshing to have a no bars held comedic powerhouse from masters of their art like a Jonah Hill, and Meryl Streep killing it in a satirical look at Donald Trump and his followers. “Don’t Look Up!” And Jonah of course with the classic line “We’re the cool rich!!!” Its a helluva time that deserves to be seen on the big screen.
I can’t wait till it comes out on Netflix comes Christmas to see social medias reaction to it, including the knockout cameos from Kid Cudi and Ariana Grande, this is Mel Brooks times 10!! It’s the ultimate disaster film of the year and make sure you stick around for the credits!
Overall grade: 4/5
