Movie Thoughts: Don’t Look Up

Bloated. That’s what this movie is. The plot, the cast and everything else. It feels like a bunch of better movies strung together. I didn’t laugh once. I can hear people going, “You weren’t supposed to.” Yeah, I was. It’s a comedy.

It’s the opposite of The Trial of the Chicago 7 — the first movie I’ve seen in a theater that I wish I would’ve just watched on Netflix. Overall this was a big let down for me. It’s another example of a great two-sentence premise that didn’t pan out when stretched to full runtime.
