In an article published in Issue 130 of the Oeste Magazine, Dagomir Marquezi writes about the devastated world in films and scientific conferences. For the columnist, most filmmakers and scientists are speaking the same language. Which makes it practically impossible to differentiate between art and fiction. After all, does art “imitate” life?

According to Marquezi, filmmakers are inspired by “scientific” predictions to create films in which millions of people are killed in front of a movie theater crowd. In this way, the journalist lists a “recipe” that disaster films must have and selects seven titles that are perfect examples.

“The list below cites catastrophe films of global reach. You know the scene: at a certain inevitable moment we see a TV screen where brave reporters document the destruction of London, Paris, Sydney and Singapore. Some of them died during the report. The world as we know it is at an end. There is no escape. Pass the popcorn.”

Don’t Look Up: It is a comedy about “denialism”, with militant actor Leonardo DiCaprio in one of the main roles. Meryl Streep is a completely irresponsible president, a female version of how leftists see Donald Trump. The Republicans in power are idiots who want to make “trillions” from the minerals inside the comet. And (one more spoiler) still manage to escape the catastrophe, moving to another planet, indifferent to the fate of the rest of humanity. The film instantly became the darling of the left caviar in the US and was nominated for four Oscars and 84 other awards.”
