Tickling the Dire and What You Can Do [How to Boil a Frog]
Global Warming isnít the problem.Having to hear about Global Warming, thatís the problem.Itís happening. Itís not happening. Itís our fault.Itís not our fault.We can do something about it.We canít do anything about it.We have to try.Why bother?
Weíre people though.We like to express ourselves.We canít help it.People have to spew about something between the violence, boredom, and celebrity oo la la.Assuming that Global Warming is an inescapable topic, can we at least make it entertaining?Is there any chance we could make it funny?
The film ďHow to Boil a FrogĒ entertains well. Itís quite funny.It sweeps you through the dire muck and depressing mire of impending doom. It refreshes your knowledge about Global Warming AGAIN.Repetitions, mush brain.They build strong muscles.
More notably, this film outlines a substantial regimen of what you can do.
Whether you consider ďAn Inconvenient TruthĒ a milestone or a hackle raiser, thankfully, the guy on screen throughout ďHow to Boil a FrogĒ is not Al Gore.This guy is nobody in particular, and thatís part of his message.The subtitle of the movie is ďmake friends / make fun / make trouble.Ē
Itís a well constructed call to action, or at least a feature length realization of intelligent sketch comedy.
