As the Comic Book Guy of the Simpson's would say, "Worst. Movie Review. Ever." The opening statement:
Once in a while, as I'm taking out the recycling or staring through a hole in the ozone layer, I'll think, ``Al Gore should cut an album." It would alert the world that the planet is in serious danger, the way Marvin Gaye's ``What's Going On?" did 35 years ago....He may not have Gaye's eloquence or the singer's lush production values, but in an eco-horror show that politely masquerades as a documentary, the former vice president effectively warns of man-made cataclysm.
Plenty, plenty more where that came from......
``An Inconvenient Truth" is galvanizing in its own right, but it would have been something to see Gore try a Michael Moore-ish road trip, to evangelize for, say, better fuel efficiency standards and bark in front of the White House for the president to sign the Kyoto environmental accord.
Whew! This would be a delightful movie review to fisk. Perhaps a group fisk is in order, feel free to fisk away in the comments. For starters, while Marvin Gaye's song was a great tune, I can't recall any great awareness or social movements resulting from it.
