Film and Television Reviews
By: Nicholas Newman
A look at some of the latest in film television and DVD.
- Cool it - Bjorn Lomborg
‘Cool it’, the movie examines the voracity of some of the arguments and proposed solutions, trendy eco-warriors such as Al-Gore has publicised in his movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’. ‘Cool it’, is a film adaptation of the book with the same name by noted Danish climate expert and scientist Bjorn Lomborg.
The film accepts the general thesis of global warming, but questions the economic and social solutions that are put forward to solve this problem.
- Chuck, Series Four
Chuck is what you would expect from James Bond if he had a sense of humour and could keep an on-going relationship. Chuck is certainly full of high jinks and parody of many of the spy films, we currently see including Mission Impossible and The Bourne Supremacy. There is everything in it from a hideout similar to the bat cave to super gadgets that appear from the most unlikely of places.
However, the magic for Chuck's fans is the clever plots and relationships that our hero Chuck has with his bride to be and other supporting characters in the series. Unlike a lot of American TV, Chuck is not for the brain dead. It is equal in many ways to The Big Bang Theory.
- Leverage the complete third season.
Leverage is the American remake of the BBC television series Hustle.
Unfortunately, this Americanised version lacks the subtle humour and intelligent repartee that plays between the characters of the British original version. However, it is still a very entertaining, sometimes comic crime caper, ideal for avoiding all those boring hours of Olympic television that will be available from the main broadcasters and cable companies, including the BBC, ITV, Virgin Cable and Sky TV.
