I thought it was a fantastic film.

And so too did Georgie boy!

Watched it last night. We certainly enjoyed it, it skewers a lot of targets, but perhaps in a rather obvious way. It felt a bit like a sketch show expanded into a slightly-too-long film?

I thought it was very good with decent performances from all of the main characters, made me laugh and shake my head in annoyance in equal measure.

YMMV I suppose, but I thought it flew by. I had opened and begun to consume one of these at the time, mind...

I found it a bit of a struggle.
A planet killing comet, hurtling in from out there, is a less than satisfactory metaphor for self-inflicted environmental breakdown.
The cartoonishly grotesque president, tech billionaire and meeja hosts 'other' the problem.
"We really did have everything, didn't we?" reflects the Dicaprio character at the last supper, without irony.

Every day I compete for road space with single occupant SUVs being driven short distances, along routes well served by public transport, by people who quite possibly thought highly of this film.

I think this might be a problem for me too.

What was the film with the aliens who did the swirly black circle communication, who refused to go away until humanity started to work together, on its problems ...??

I quite liked that..

We really could do with those guys turning up very soon
