New on DVD
A slew of forgettable movies hitting DVD of late, with probably the most notable among them being the monumentally important though somewhat problematic documentary An Inconvenient Truth, in which Al Gore presents his standard global warming slideshow. The science is simple and hard-hitting, the points very well made. The bad points? When the film tries to give us Al the person, Al the father, and not just Al the environmental scold (the last persona works best for him, and the film). Scary and poignant, though of course still likely to make no difference in the end.
