The Great Warming: Same Old Schlock

UPDATE (8:54 pm): Stephen Macklin over at Hold the Mayo takes a closer look at The Great Warming's website.

Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth seems to have started a trend, as we now have another movie to scare us into going back to the horse and wagon: The Great Warming, narrated by Keanu Reeves. Its website tells us:

We are living at the dawn of a new epoch. Year by year, degree by degree, Earth is growing warmer...a legacy of the Industrial Revolution, population growth, and our addiction to technology, speed and power.

Does that mean that Reeves should do penance for his movie Speed? I wonder how much gas was sucked up during those speeding bus scenes? Will Hollywood stop filming movies with endless car chases? (Don't bet on it...what's good for us is not good for them.)

As Mark D. Tooley on Front Page Magazine points out:

When some evangelicals flocked to movies about the Great End Times prophesied in Scripture, the Left mocked their harmless fascination. Now, Hollywood and the Green Left applauds as ostensibly more hip evangelicals, anxious to show the world how different they are, latch onto Global Warming as their more politically correct Apocalypse. Hollywood glitterati, Ted Turner, and the New York Times are not likely to lavish praise on another installment of the Left Behind series. But apocalyptic warnings about a planet that will burn up unless the United States repents of its carbon sins are sure to attract the Beautiful People.

Indeed, on the movie's website, you'll see a link for churches who are involved in saving us from our industrial folly. It seems that Hollywood has found a use for religion after all.

This film was shot and edited long before the Gore film was conceived. It has been in production for about 5 or 6 years.

Please se the New York Times for a mroe accurate review of the film: http://movies2.nytimes.com/gst/movies/movie.html?v_id=345068
