The day after tomorrow

     I saw "The day after tomorrow" last night at the drive in with Mandy. The concept was a little chilling, thinking about the possibility of another ice age occurring due the effects of our very real issues with global warming.

     I was not that impressed with the story line, I had no real connection to the characters themselves until the very end. I'm no critic, but... I would recommend seeing the movie if only to give yourself more awareness of the possible effects our environment could have on life as we know it.

Wow, first of all, you still have a drive-in 'picture show' where you live?  ku-ul!
Second--good recommendation that, even though character development is lacking (and what disaster flick bothers?), we should see for the harmful effects of global warming.
'Course we see it everyday, skipping Spring and shooting right into Summer, around these here parts.  If we want seasons we gotta stop with the oil-based cars.

I'm definitely going to see the movie. Scientifically, it's off the mark. Weather patterns dont' change THAT quickly and a hurricane would dissapate over land but far worse weather than that is recoreded in the gelogic record of earth.

I was watching Grease last night on VH1.  Does your drive-in have swings and places to buy refreshments.  I don't think I have seen one in 17 years!

Mumsy- yes, Ku-ul! the drive in is definitely Ku-ul! and agreed, we need to become more responsible for our own environment.

Gregg- It wasn't really a hurricane, the weather patterns just resembled a hurricane. Agree that the scientific concept is a little over the edge but the message was obvious. We need to take care of our environment before it's to late. When you see it, let me know what you think!

Bill- your lighthearted way of comparing situations to quotes and clips you have watched on TV reminds me of Martin Tupper (Brian Benben) from Dream on. Do you remember...
I love that about you :-)
Watch for an entry soon about the Drive In near my house.
