thanks to Al Gore for trying to convince Governments to make the shift to save the human race. Great movie woke me up!
Actually an update rather than a sequel to the first documentary draws a more depressing and hopeless picture of what can be done to confront the climate change, despite its efforts not to appear so.
Another punch to the face doc that documents the event after the first film blended with more informative moments similar to the first one. A great sequel that I would say is about as important as the first one
Better than the original!
Another one, it basically is repeated the same stuff as the first. Watch the first, not this.
In this follow-up to the 2006 award-winning documentary, former vice-president Al Gore engages a relentless global campaign to slow the earthly havoc of climate change. In this film, he is the hero confronting the villains, the opposition of those criticizing his agenda and naysayers rejecting environmental disasters contributed by global warming. Where, might you guess are the battlegrounds of these confrontations?
In so much of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, these are the governmental administrations; the weapons have politics as their ammunition under the guise of diplomacy. That is the movie's story here in my viewpoint, where the real-life drama lies having political leaders, officials, and Gore's associates as supporting characters.
Al Gore has admirable qualities; he is an exceptional speaker and capable dealmaker, holding the attention of his listeners. His presentations alerting about climate change are compelling, boiling with evidence, well-researched and prepared. Kudos for the film's producers and directors gathering stunning footage from across the globe revealing how severe and life-threatening the continual damage of our spherical residence.
Here's the problem with the movie; it depends too much on politics as the ultimate solution, the happy ending. Can our world leaders save this earth by regulating their nations' carbon footprints, by enacting the policies Al Gore recommends? Mr. Gore quotes Bible scriptures including an indirect recitation from Moses' words (Deuteronomy). He indicates other Biblical references such as a statement from the book of Revelation. Oddly he seems to credit 'Mother Nature' above God.
Perhaps, the most suitable scriptures Mr. Gore may quote are Psalms 146: 3, 4. You may read them; the bleak reality of those ancient verses radiates in the documentary, especially after Gore, his endorsers confront stunning setbacks and disappointments.
A lot of what else is Mr. Gore's show, we hear some but not enough from environmental experts and scientists' expressions, hardy any shown at his capacity-filled presentations to support Gore's arguments. In the film, the camera follows Gore close enough to leave out personal involvement outside the political theater.
You and I have a stake in this matter. Isn't it true other than us urging and voting for local administrators to implant renewable energy options? (I am neutral to politics, the film isn't.) Example, Mr. Gore noted the high number of cell phones used globally, more than the earth's population. How often have you seen discarded, used, broken cell phones on streets and in the garbage?
It is not unbelievable that the chemical leakage from the phones and other electronic devices affect the ground and water supply. Why didn't the film share this little fact, in addition to how many plastic items and other materials are poorly discarding by the tons?
In one of Gore's passionate efforts he endeavors to persuade an Asian government to ditch their plans to build coal mills and opt for a singular, renewable energy solution. He names the US energy contractor selected by him apart from others in the same industry. Talk about sponsorship! Why did not Mr. Gore recommend his active audience to follow suit for their homes?He skipped over other obvious environmental conscious counseling. Well, we cannot blame the film editors on these missed opportunities.
The movie provides truth to power poof of climate change excluding much the audience's person by person impact. So, if you are not rooting for the Gore team, the film might either dis-involve or bore you into disinterest. I did not see the first film, An Inconvenient Truth; it is apparent the sequel depends on it rather than stand firmly on its own merits.
"GORE DE-BUNKS THE DE-BUNKERS"
by Dane Youssef
What makes someone a fan? And where is the line between ï¿ 1/2I like this on a personal levelï¿ 1/2Â? and ï¿ 1/2I think this is important and we need to start doing itï¿ 1/2Â?? Did people ï¿ 1/2likeï¿ 1/2Â? Goreï¿ 1/2(TM)s filmï¿ 1/2 or is it just that the message seemed necessary?
When reviews came out, I read feedback from folks who didnï¿ 1/2(TM)t like INCONVENIENT TRUTH because Gore was preaching to the choirï¿ 1/2"he wasnï¿ 1/2(TM)t telling them anything they didnï¿ 1/2(TM)t already know. People watch the news. Kids even see those shows like CAPTIAN PLANET and know whatï¿ 1/2(TM)s going on in the world. Some felt Gore didnï¿ 1/2(TM)t really bring the facts in a way that was all that new, exciting or even very informative. The biggest most personal touch in INCONVENIENT TRUTH was the bumpers of footage that was a documentary on the former Vice President himself. His childhood, his relationship with his wife, his sonï¿ 1/2(TM)s near-brush with death, his twice campaign for the presidency, his late sister, his father and his attempts to plead to the officials that global warming had
Now I personally was the biggest fan and follower of INCONVENIENT TRUTH. And it had been everything. Gore called it "the slide show" before giving it the more enticing and grabbing title of INCONVENIENT TRUTH. I felt not only the personal mission and mantra to ï¿ 1/2Save the Planetï¿ 1/2Â?. I was inspired to be the crusader for my own personal cause and mantra myselfï¿ 1/2"whatever it may turn out to be.
Soï¿ 1/2 INCONVENIENT SEQUEL? What does Gore bring us this time? Sounds like a guaranteed re-hash. ï¿ 1/2Hey, this is one of those films where you can pretty much get the whole gist of the movie by watching the trailer? Or maybe you can get it
Gore doesn't just a nice safe "more of the same". Another almost entire college lecture done on Apple. Like someone used their iPhone to record a class at the local university. Not just a Keynote speech. It was
There are a few scenes of Gore Jr. onstage lecturing on Apple slides this time. A lot less than the first one. And more of the man on the move, on the pursuit to do more than just sit back and tell everyone else to ï¿ 1/2give a hoot, donï¿ 1/2(TM)t polluteï¿ 1/2Â?.
I myself have actually heard people say directly to we, "Yeah well, let's say it is true. What is Gore himself personally doing about global warming? Is he just telling everyone to watch their smog? What, does he expect everyone to ride a bike while he continues to tool around the world from place-to-place in a private jet?"
Not a slide-show lecture recorded live in concert like a stand-up concert special. But a real full-blooded documentary. On location and everything. Not just charts and graphs. I have to admit, I was intrigued.
Even Doug Walker when doing his beloved, beloved NOSTALGIA CRITIC and going after Kevin Costner's notorious WATERWORLD, he made a jab about Gore doing another one.
Since TRUTH, numerous others have gone on to discredit and "de-bunk" the propaganda that is just panic and paranoia from the former deputy President of the United States. This film is kind of a "See?!? SEE?!? I WAS RIGHT!" And it shows Gore on location getting involved. Getting involved more than a lot of us have.
SEQUEL wasnï¿ 1/2(TM)t as well-received. Itï¿ 1/2(TM)s totally understandable. Itï¿ 1/2(TM)s not just hard to make a good sequel. The first time around, everyoneï¿ 1/2(TM)s blown away. Butï¿ 1/2 when they have a better idea of what to expect and you donï¿ 1/2(TM)t really catch them off guard quite as much. Itï¿ 1/2(TM)s not as shocking.
Why this INCONVENIENT SEQUEL? Gore felt there was still work to do. This movie is Gore debunking the debunkers. Those screaming that Gore lied and the whole thing was just a stunt to get us to notice him and we all fell for it. Even our current Chief was crying out for Goreï¿ 1/2(TM)s own Nobel Prize to be rescindedï¿ 1/2"the medallion and the money.
Those who remarked that Goreï¿ 1/2(TM)s filming winning every prize---every trophy, ribbon, plaque, certificate and just plain award in general for ï¿ 1/2Best Documentaryï¿ 1/2Â? (not for Gore, but for TRUTHï¿ 1/2(TM)s director, David Guggenheim). A consolation prize for the Presidency that was unjustly stolen from him.
The two standing ovations this movie got at Sundance were nice and so will be whatever this movie wins for. Hopefully, itï¿ 1/2(TM)s the box-office return thatï¿ 1/2(TM)ll be the biggest. But after seeing both TRUTH and SEQUEL, one needs to really ask, ï¿ 1/2What are you going to go now about our global warming problem? Goreï¿ 1/2(TM)s not just putting on a little show for us? Are you going to do something? Andï¿ 1/2 when? And are you going to keep it up?ï¿ 1/2Â?
Gore is still working. Gore is still here. One wonders if Gore could use this approach to personally address a lot of other issues that seem to plague our little world besides the always-increasing temperature.
Everyone should see this movie. Both of them.
And thenï¿ 1/2 everyone should doï¿ 1/2 something.
--As Always, DANE R. YOUSSEF
Superb and fact-based
Nothing new but equally as powerful as the first film.
This movie deserves more than 5 stars. This shows us humans about the world that is crumbling around us because of our false perceptions of reality by the media and by the ignorant politicians that so much as say that hurricane harvey was because their mayor was lesbian and it was gods will: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/ann-coulter-harvey-climate-change-god-punishment-more-credible-tweet-a7919301.html . This movie shows us the destruction and harm that we are causing to the entire world, and how god damn petty and greedy american politicians are. Ignorant people follow trump's lead as if he were a savior. He does not have a degree in the sciences, nor anything to do with science. His specialty is deception and lies because he is a business man through and through. ll in all, this movie deserves a lot of credit because it is not based on something fake off the backs of hollywood, it is the jarring truth of what we are doing to our home.
