AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH

A documentary on Al Gore’s campaign to make the issue of global warming a recognized problem worldwide.

Review: When I said I was going to a press screening of “An Inconvenient Truth,” a friend said, “Al Gore talking about the environment! Bor…ing!” This is not a boring film. The director, Davis Guggenheim, uses words, images and Gore’s concise litany of facts to build a film that is fascinating and relentless. In 39 years, I have never written these words in a movie review, but here they are: You owe it to yourself to see this film… Rated PG (for mild thematic elements) (Four stars out of four)

” Roger Ebert

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST Rated PG-13

TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY

Cast: Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Sacha Baron Cohen

Review: “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” ” Ricky Bobby goes straight, then he turns left. Then he goes straight, then he turns left again. Around and around, over and over. Such is life in NASCAR, but it’s also true of this auto racing comedy. Like the sport it spoofs, the movie has its thrilling moments but mostly feels repetitive ” it’s constantly moving but never really goes anywhere. It’s also just too much like “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” ” or at least it’s trying to be, but comes up short. Same star (Will Ferrell), same director (Adam McKay), same writers (Ferrell and McKay again). Same basic character (a fervently clueless doofus who’s unflappably confident in his abilities), same plot (he’s at the top of his game but experiences a downfall at the hands of a new rival), same outcome (he returns to the top of his game having gained perhaps a smidgen of humility, if that). John C. Reilly and Sacha Baron Cohen co-star. PG-13 for crude and sexual humor, language, drug references and brief comic violence. 97 min. Two stars out of four.
