The Day the Earth Yawned While Hollywood Preached
But you already knew that.
The “global warming action film” is in wide release today. Normally I’d be excited about a film wherein an alien destroys great chunks of humanity. But I have no desire to be lectured about the evils perpetrated upon poor, innocent Mother Earth. I can turn on Discovery, National Geographic, or CNN for that.
Oh, Also While I’m Thinking About It: It’s impossible to escape chatter about the Golden Globes (or any of those award shows) here in L.A. so I did take a peek at the list. The only one that gets my full recommendation is In Bruges. It’s really not what you expect, but believe me when I say that both Colin Farrel and Brendan Gleeson deserve “Best Actor (comedy or musical)” for this film. It’s a shame they can only give out one award.
