Don't Look Up

 

Don't Look Up

 YouTube. Politics at play:  President  expects the audience to agree. Meryl Streep is Madame President, who is scales down the danger, eyes on the numbers, hopes for good numbers in the re-election. Don't look up!  is an oft-repeated command. If she said that often and loudly enough, her nation would believe it.  She is one darn crazy, devious president.

Telling someone, "Don't look up!" almost always makes that someone look up. In fact, everyone around that person will also look up.

Would you? Sure, and I would, too. ONCE. 

This movie is "Don't Look Up!"

Here is a synopsis, which says everything I would want to say, but can't:

Astronomy student Kate discovers the existence of an unidentified comet. Her professor, Dr Mindy, calculates that the trajectory of the asteroid crosses that of the Earth and that an impact will take place in about six months, killing all life in the process. They travel to the White House to present their findings. However The White House has other plans and are trying to silence Dr Mindy and Kate. In their attempt to inform the population through a television program, nothing really changes. Nobody seems interested and they will soon find out why.

Each YouTube video is between 3 to 5 minutes.

This film is chock a block with some really top-notch actors. Each is particularly gifted in improvisation and the film has some comedic acting and improv.  The video above is well-done synopsis. Those who are upset at a spoiler need to know: it is all predictable with a whole lot of funny.

    1. If it ever made TV (which I doubt), it would be pretty edited.

    1. Give it some thought, pop over to watch it on Netflix. Let me know what you think.

  3. I've heard a lot about it although haven't been motivated enough to see it. The government trying to silence people? Almost too close to reality.

    1. It is funny, with all that talent playing around with the dialogue.

  4. There was a large meteor that just passed the earth. I didn't look up but I heard you could watch it pass by on Youtube. I'm not kidding. I can't believe it wasn't all over Facebook?! I don't know about the movie but I do like Meryl Streep's hair!

    1. I didn't know about that! Will go to our science sites.

      It always amazes me how Meryl Streep can change her looks.

  5. Of course I would look up. Think you sold me with "funny" but I will wait for it to come to the small screen.

    1. It is on Netflix. I doubt it will go big screen. Too controversial.

  6. It has been years since I watched a movie big or small. I am thinking about learning to operate the CD player I have here in the coach. So far I have found ALL media goes at too fast a clip to read closed captions for me to follow. BUT this one seems enough to make me try LATER!
    Good stuff for a post.
    Thanks, Sherry & jack cooling it in Florida

    1. My gr-daughters always set us up. They are teenagers, after all.
      Closed captions can be good or awful. Just depends.

  9. I have been hearing all sorts of things about this. But I fear it feels too close to reality, so I'll pass for now.

    1. It is funny. No seriousness about it. Actors are super.

  11. It is us. Too many people are just not looking up, wanting to be entertained until the predictable end.

    1. That is the way it is now. It is easier to deny than it is to find truth.

  12. Haven't watched this yet! Undoubtedly a good satire!

  13. Have heard a lot about this movie, and would love the satire. I have Netflix, but haven't watched it yet. I will be, though. More bad weather coming, so maybe later this week. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
