    I feel like we all truly missed out on something special not being able to see this for the first time in packed theaters.

    This is my favorite of McKay’s “serious” movies. It’s a bit heavy-handed and a little lazy with some of the Internet-y jokes, but i think that’s small potatoes in the grand scheme of what the movie is about. 

    An allegory about climate change is exhausting territory to begin with, and a lot of the points made in the movie are points that have been made before, but i still think it’s a worthy effort. Leo gets his Network moment and McKay gets to imagine how we’d chew it up and spit it out. I also really liked Mark Rylance in this.
