Watching it now but this tendency in movies to not identify the cataclysmic event is annoying. I know it opens the director up to criticism that “no xxx doesn’t happen that way” but doing things this way whereby no one talks about exactly what is wiping out the planet is lazy.

Not unlike Clooney himself. Always the smooth, woke liberal who knows better than the rest of us, but hiding behind vagueness and virtue.

Just finished watching it. A dystopian sci-fi with a message of hope seems relevant in these times.

Cool spaceship Aether.

Could not help wondering if the filmmakers were making some kind of a statement with a black and white couple.

Watched it last night. It wasn’t anything special but wasn’t a waste of time either. Clooney usually does a decent acting job in his films. Ignoring the details of the apocalypse throughout the film is just dumb. We are currently in the midst of a global pandemic and everyone is constantly talking about the cause (China) and details surrounding it ( # of infections and deaths, lockdowns, and vaccines, etc). I suppose the intent was to focus on the human trials and tragedies. As TheRat stated, it’s just lazy to not work on coming up with an explanation for it at all. Although alluded to I was surprised he would pass up such a golden opportunity to gin up the global warming hysterics. I suppose he has been sufficiently vociferous about Leftist causes that he could get away with making a film not so overtly woke as to repel non-believers in the Progressive catechism. This film was an example of the soft sell.

That goes without saying. A lot of us here on JT know inter-racial relationships and take it for granted. Few feel the need to moralize about it. I often see Lefties like Clooney as confused; hyper-focused on racial differences while pushing inter-racial relationships as the ideal. They are strangely ignorant of the fact that they are overtly racist in their worldview.
