Dan Drezner is calling for a boycott of the new film – I for one love this kind of stuff. As much as alot of is plain nonsense – I’m a sucker for big epic special effects pop-corn movies. I had the same buzz with Independence Day, and no doubt it will be the same for this film.
As for the environmental aspect, I think MoveOn.org are taking this one just a bit too far. But as already discussed on this blog, I am of the opinion that global warming is taking place, and that Carthage must be destroyed.
