    Netflix "Don't Look Up" Showcases Based Viewpoint From Climate Change Propagandists

    "Don't Look Up" on Netflix is a must watch!

    Ya, it's a movie about a comet that is going to hit and destroy the earth that is an analogy for climate change, but it's also a very based look at society that begs the question, "is this clown world really worth saving?"

    Spoiler alert, the Bill Gatesesque character ends up destroying the world.. so there's also that.

    At the end of the day, it's hilarious and highly entertaining.

    Kind of a dual message. Republicans are dumb, and don't trust the elites

    Also the don't look up is almost certainly a metaphor for vaccine deniers
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Yes. Your question above is a hallmark of dystopia porn. Methinks you missed the targets of the movie. The global warming deniers and Trump supporters are the clowns, and Merrill Streep is Trump.

    'Don't Look Up' delivers a scathing satire that occasionally veers off course







    ***Spoiler alert!***



    The end of the world scenario is a metaphor for global warming, complete with "deniers". Merrill Streep plays the President, who is an obvious parody of Trump. There is an autistic, self-absorbed, greedy capitalist tech billionaire, who may be loosely based on Elon Musk. He derails an effort to deflect the meteor, in order to implement his plan to capture the meteor for resources. He fails, after which he and the president escape in a space ship. The planet gets destroyed, everyone else dies.

    You could infer that now, but the movie was written and planned pre-Covid, and was explicitly written about climate change deniers.

    Ya I caught it, but that was a total of like 30 seconds of the movie. The main focus was on the entertainment industry and the dumbed down society who pays attention to that $#@!. Elite government scientists who are corrupt and don't know anything, elite politicians.. The President was more like a right wing version of Hillary Clinton and her son was more like Seth Rogen than Don Jr., even if that wasn't the intention.

    And the President had an affair with a porn star, who she nominated to the Supreme Court.

    Irrelevant. That couldn't possibly be satirical in nature. She looked and sounded more like Clinton.

    They probably intended the Bill Gatesesque guy to be more like Elon or something, too.. but he ended up being more like Bill Gates and Zuckerberg rolled into one. NASA is "peer reviewed" and precise, the private space industry is just about greed.. except SpaceX is doing way better stuff than NASA.. Part of the comedy is them making fun of themselves, some of that was intentional, some not so much.

    I think it's funny they had to make the Elon more like Gates/Zuckerberg and Trump more like Hillary with a son like a Seth Rogen character to really make the movie work and be funny. I don't claim they intended to do that, beyond the President looking somewhat like Hillary.

    It was clear the producer's intent was the skewer climate change skeptics, Trump, Elon Musk types, and the media, but I think it largely missed those targets and it hit these:

    Interesting article, but it is not as black and white as the author assumes it to be.

    Also, what is up with the longest tracking tag I have ever seen on the end of that link?

    I haven't seen it and don't really want to. But here's a review that looks to me like it probably got it right.
    https://www.spiked-online.com/2022/0...etflix-elites/
    Don’t Look Up is the least subtle allegory of modern times. It is a mallet of a metaphor. It is the bluntest of parables, smashing through TV and tablet screens across the globe and screaming at viewers: ‘This is a film about a comet but REALLY IT IS ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE.’ They really do scream, especially Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays the clever, sexy scientist Dr Randall Mindy, who, unlike the dentally challenged rednecks he has the misfortune to call his fellow citizens, knows that the comet is real and that it really will hit the Earth. Poor Mindy is in a constant state of apoplexy at fickle, dim mankind, on one occasion bellowing: ‘YOU ARE ALL GOING TO $#@!ING DIE.’ Leo, being a green nut himself, really hams it up, revelling in this mad, morally infantile script that gives free rein to his fire-and-brimstone eco-beliefs. Next time you see The Revenant, you’ll root for the bear.It is hard to describe just how preposterous Don’t Look Up is. Adam McKay’s 145-minute lecture disguised as a movie is on Netflix. (Where else?) It tells the story of two low-level astronomers – Mindy and his punkish PhD student, Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence) – who spot a comet that is hurtling towards our big, dumb planet. They try to warn humankind, but to little avail. The president of the United States – Meryl Streep as a female Trump – is too busy thinking about the Midterms and the media’s discovery of the fact that she once sent a photo of her vagina to her nominee for the Supreme Court to worry about something as trifling as the extinction of all life on Earth. Let’s sit on it, she says. Businessmen wonder if the arrival of the comet might be a good thing. Think of all the minerals it will contain! Think of how many mobile phones we could make! Evil, money-grubbing capitalists? Original. As for the plebs: they’re far more concerned with celebrity tittle-tattle and earning a living – so vulgar! – than they are with the heat death of humankind.

    It really is this unsubtle. It’s like someone reached into the head of a freshly politicised 16-year-old TikToker and turned the contents into a film. It falls to an Expert (Mindy) and a Cool Person (Dibiasky) to try to prise open the eyes of the ignorant throng. These are the heroes of our age in the eyes of the Netflix elites – people with postgraduate degrees and funny-coloured hair. Lawrence as Dibiasky sports a severe, red-dyed fringe – to distinguish her from the billions of normies who don’t care about the comet that’s about to vaporise them – and she goes on TV to weep and wail about the destruction of the planet, like George Monbiot recently did. One good line is when Streep’s president says they should use Dibiasky for media work more often, because she’ll connect with ‘disaffected youth and the mentally ill’. Every time DiCaprio and Lawrence’s characters were on screen, I felt myself turning a bit Betjeman. ‘Come, friendly comet…’ It is sweet relief when they die. (Come on, that doesn’t count as a spoiler – you knew this crap wasn’t going to have a happy ending.)
    For the whole two-and-a-half days, or hours, or whatever, that this film lasts, you can feel the writers Adam McKay and David Sirota jabbing you in the ribs and saying: ‘It’s actually about climate change! Do you see?’ Yes we see! We get it – the comet is climate change, the politicos saying ‘Don’t look up’ are the climate-change deniers, and the scientists saying ‘Holy crap, we’re all going to die’ are the heroic climate-change activists. Blah, blah, blah, as Greta might say. It is of course this element of the film – its distillation of the climate-change issue into a morally reductive comedic fairytale – that has got many critics hot under the collar. They love this nonsense. And it really is nonsense. It is Don’t Look Up’s hammer-like eco-messaging that is the most preposterous thing of all.

    Its wrongness cannot be overstated. Seriously, what planet do Netflix execs and writers live on if they think scientists who warn about the end of the world risk being persecuted by the political establishment? Both Mindy and Dibiasky are hunted down by the CIA and forced ‘off grid’ for their warnings about End Times. LOL. The CIA is super-green, you muppets. It loves apocalyptic bollocks. Who can forget the New York Times piece from last year that praised the CIA for its ‘environmental sleuthing’, for ‘spy[ing] for planet Earth’? Makes a change from plotting the assassination of disagreeable foreign leaders, I guess. In the real world, far from the Californian bubble inhabited by the Netflix elites, it is scientists who question the idea that climate change will shortly propel us towards the End of Days who are persecuted, No Platformed, shut down. This silly film is the polar opposite of the truth.
    And then there’s the classism. Classism really isn’t too strong a word for it. Don’t Look Up drips with elitist contempt for the masses. Streep’s Prez whips up the red-cap-wearing idiocracy into a frenzy of comet denialism. When Dibiasky goes to visit her parents shortly before extinction day they tell her they’re hopeful about the business world’s belief that the comet might be safely broken up and mined for minerals. ‘Your dad and I are for the jobs the comet will provide’, her working-class mum says, and the role of the audience at this point is very, very clear – we’re meant to laugh, to mock, to agonise over the existence of such braindead creatures that worry more about their end-of-month wages than they do about the end of the world that bothers the clever heads of rich Californian movie execs. If Streep is an impersonation of Trump, these characters are caricatures of Rust Belt voters who want good, honest jobs in excavation and manufacturing and transport. Jonah Hill plays the president’s conceited son (Hill is easily the best thing in the movie, in equal parts ridiculous and hilarious), and at one point he openly talks about the successful coalition of the dumb he has created between ‘the working class and the cool rich’.

    The slogan of the manipulative Trumpite elites who brainwash the ignorant multitude is literally ‘Don’t look up’. They have it printed on caps and t-shirts. They say ‘Don’t look up’ and the working classes obediently refuse to look up. Which means they don’t see the comet even when it is close by. I’m not making this up. There’s McKay and Sirota digging you in the ribs again: ‘Ordinary people are stupid as $#@! – do you see?’ Guys, we see. There’s a scene in which one of the working-class robots decides, finally, to look up and, lo, he sees the comet. ‘They lied to us’, he says. God I would love to see the casting notes for this bit-part character. Must be fat. Must look good in a mullet. Must be able to sound dumb as hell. The snobbery of this movie is as unsubtle as its eco-metaphors. You’re beaten across the face with it from beginning to end. It just feels depressing after two-and-a-half years. Or hours. However long this thing is.

    Don’t Look Up sums up the unbearable smugness of the Netflix elites, of those West and East Coast cultural movers and shakers who see it as their responsibility to ‘raise the awareness’ of the little people. The makers of this movie really have convinced themselves that they are brave soothsayers who risk being collared by the CIA and capitalism itself for their reckless propagation of The Truth, when in reality they themselves are the new corporate elites who exercise an extraordinary amount of influence over public life in the 21st century. These days, it isn’t ‘denialism’ that is the problem – it’s catastrophism, the view of everything, especially climate change, as a calamity that our hubristic species has brought upon itself. That is the elite consensus opinion right now and, not surprisingly, Netflix, the cultural embodiment of the new elites, is riddled with this decadent, indulgent End of Days hysteria. Seriously, I can’t have been the only person who was rooting more for the working-class upstarts chanting ‘Don’t look up’ than I was for DiCaprio’s shrill, self-satisfied prophesier of doom.
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    Yes, there is a great deal left worth saving.

    In fact, the only things needing destruction are the Marxist clowns that are turning our world into clown world.

    I definitely agree on that point, the normal world wasn't really portrayed much except by the main characters. The only way the normal people were portrayed as were crazy comet deniers, but fortunately there was very little focus on that during the film.

    A friend who is a a livelong GOP guy and a huge Trump supporter recommended the movie. He thought the exact same thing as you. He loved it. His impression was the Streep character was supposed to be Hillary. He's a big fan of Beavis and Butthead, so to him the movie was just like Idiocracy.

    They are the new global aristocracy. You are a peon. Hypocrisy is a term that can only be applied to peons, workers and deplorables.

    He is a celebrity UN climate change ambassador who has called the issue ‘the most urgent threat facing our entire species’.

    But while he urges fans to take action, Leonardo DiCaprio has been spending time on one of the world’s biggest, and most environmentally unfriendly, superyachts.

    The 315ft, £110 million Vava II – which even features a helipad on the uppermost of its six decks – produces as much carbon by sailing just seven miles as an average car belches out in a year.
    ...
    The couple have been staying with friends on the superyacht, which also boasts a gym, swimming pool, ‘beach club’ and cinema. The Vava II – the biggest yacht to be manufactured in Britain – is owned by the Swiss pharmaceutical billionaire Ernesto Bertarelli, 46.
    ...
    The Titanic star and his girlfriend of five years partied with a host of celebrity pals at a Unicef gala on New Year’s Eve whose guest list boasted Amazon boss Jeff Bezos, boxer Mike Tyson and British singer Dua Lipa.

    In Leo's defense, the yacht has been anchored most of the time he's been on it.

    Is there really a comet or other cataclysm on the way? Or is it a psyop to create yet more fear and submission? That is truly the million dollar question. The answer to that is probably only known by paygrades higher than Leo and Joe's.

    As far as the film itself is concerned, the ending is pretty $#@!in' funny...

    Talked to another person tonight who loved the movie. She is young, but a GOP, Trump type person. She is savvy enough (and young enough) to look up articles which describe the intended persons being satirized, Trump, Trump Jr., Musk, etc., but she still really liked it.

    @dannno, you are not alone.

    "We have set them on the hobby-horse of an idea about the absorption of individuality by the symbolic unit of COLLECTIVISM. They have never yet and they never will have the sense to reflect that this hobby-horse is a manifest violation of the most important law of nature, which has established from the very creation of the world one unit unlike another and precisely for the purpose of instituting individuality."- A Quote From Some Old Book

    I made it 5 minutes, including the 1:30 minutes of advertising at the beginning. No idea who this guy is, but he shouldn’t quit his day job. Pro tip: when wrongly referencing something from the movie, don't display images from the movie that show you got it wrong, i.e. it’s “The Daily Rip”, not “Morning Rip”.
