Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006)
Innovation, and what scares the status quo
I saw this excellent movie last night, and it really makes one wonder, why does innovation scare people so much? The best line ever "I don't want to be European" shows the ignorance of the the American public at large, and rather then be dumbed down by the typical Hollywood recycling this summer, go see Who Killed the Electric Car and exercise the neurons in your brain!! The current wave of documentaries are not lightning rods of false facts to open up leftist debate from environmentalists to make us all into communists and fascists, but rather an intellectual eye opener to show some potential other sides to the current state of being. This is not a typical documentary, it is actually one of the most entertaining movies I have seen this year, and actually offers more comedy then even Grizzly Man! Go see this movie for the entertainment value, but also to see potential ways to not have to pay $4 a gallon for gasoline someday, as well as other potential neglected 1970's ideals as solar power. The electric car seems like it was an idea way ahead of its time, much like the Apple Newton, and its a shame that there is not a single one still on the road, not because of the inability of the car to be viable, but because the manufacturers took them all off the road. Is this really progress? Or should the public be upset that the manufacturers would rather lobby the government to keep oil as the only way to fill up a car? You can keep you SUV or you Hummer, but at least check this movie out to see what you are missing!
one of the last great Burt Reynolds action flix
this is one of, if not the last, of the great Reynolds action flix, and shockingly it is not available on DVD, while such horrid Burt movies such as stroker ace and cop and a half are. although Burt seems to think he is Mr. Majesty is this fine flick, it is just an awesome movie set in the Oregon wilderness where ex-fed Burt has to kick some big bully bad guys such as cliff Robertson's tail.....in terms of pure pimpitude, Burt gets a 10 here, never has his toupee, bad stache, tight jeans, and shades been on such display, and he can still play the ladies, but the bad guys are his real targets in Malone. time to burn the ID and head off into the woods i guess. someone please bring out that all time classic Malone on DVD, and remind folks of how great action flicks could be pre segal, the rock, and van dam.....when Burt, chuck Bronson, and Clint reigned supreme, with Sly Stallone still trying to escape from clubber lang and thunderfoot
