Inconvenient Truth

I went to see An Inconvenient Truth this morning. Brandi decided that the impending collapse of civilization was unworthy of 100 minutes of her attention, so I went alone.

Apparently, she isn’t the only one who felt this way. I was completely alone. I was the only one who bought a ticket for this showing, and they fired up the projector just for me.

It was awesome. I plopped my ass smack dap in the center of the theater with my big bucket of popcorn and gallon of coke (the smallest size they sell, apparently).

The movie kind of felt like two completely separate shows spliced together. One was of Al doing his slideshow presentation (which totally kicked ass), and the other was of Al’s personal crusade (which felt kind of phoney).

The slideshow was great. Plenty of charts and graphs, interspersed with some actually fairly funny jokes to break up the monotony.

The “Al Gore as regular schmoe” parts kind of bugged me. They show him standing in line at the airport, and flying on commercial airlines. I somehow doubt that a former vice president travels this way. There was no sign of secret service anywhere, either.

I give it 4 Jihadis.

4 Jihadis out of 5

I’m afraid that this movie is probably just preaching to the choir. People who already know the truth about global warming don’t learn very much from this film. People who deny global warming are willfully ignorant, and probably wouldn’t go see the film anyway.
