Does anyone get the impression that the new movie "The Day After Tomorrow" is a left wing wake up call for global warming? I saw this movie yesterday and while it was very entertaining, it seems to be laced with left wing propaganda that did nothing to enhance the story. I think I even heard someone say the line to the effect of "Maybe we will learn our lesson this time". What??? Are they saying that the cavemen caused the last ice age? I also got a kick out of the line "I've never seen the air so clean". I have a question for you folks up north. Did the theater erupt in laughter when the immigrants from the U.S were crossing the Rio Grande? What about when the news report mentioned that the U.S. erased all of the Latin American debt in return for allowing Americans to cross into Mexico? Down here, it's the funniest thing anyone ever heard. While I think this movie is meant to be pure entertainment, I did catch a hint of an agenda which disappointed me a little. The director (Roland Emmerich) is known for his large scale disaster movies (Independence Day, Godzilla, etc) so I was expecting a fun roller coaster ride. Instead I was greeted with yet another preaching session about how the world will end soon if we don't do something about the environment. If I wanted that, I would have turned on CNN. On the plus side, it was nice to see a more character driven movie instead of a "Let's use a nuke to cure this problem" type story. I like disaster movies that focus on how people deal with the problem. I guess that's why I enjoyed "Deep Impact" so much. Overall though, I would still give the film a thumbs up. It really is a fun movie as long as you go in with the idea that it's also meant to preach about what could happen if global warming gets out of control.
