An Inconvenient Truth

What can I say about Al Gore’s Global Warming documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth”, that hasn’t been said already? Fascinating, eye-opening, scientifically sound, a must-see - these are all clichés.

But I’ll tell you one thing. All the sceptics who say that global warming is cyclic, that we’ve had one in the middle ages, that global warming is just a theory... they can’t possibly have seen the data or they would have realised how wrong they are. So, if you are one of them, please go see the movie. And if you’re not, you will have seen it already.

This is certainly the best (not to mention the most important) movie I’ve seen in a long time.

Which reminds me: don’t bother with “The Wild”. “The Wild” is the story of “Finding Nemo” using “The Lion King” characters placed in a “Madagascar” setting, with a few in-jokes from “Pirates of the Caribbean 2”. And, judging by the trailers, we have a “Babe” the talking piglet remake too, this one called ”Charlotte’s Web”.

Come on, screenwriters, surely there are some original ideas out there? Not to blow my own trumpet, or anything.

There are thousands of new ideas out there, but that in itself is a problem. They are new. Untested. Too much of a $$$$ risk.

Aparently, though, Charlotte's web is a book that came before Babe. But either way, one talking pork movie is enough for me.
