. . . the point at which I was forced to retract every impassioned defense I'd ever made of Hollywood as not being a bunch of elitist, out-of-touch, dumbass liberals, when the Academy implied that "The Day After Tomorrow" belonged up there with "Network," "Hotel Rwanda," "To Kill a Mockingbird," et al. in the montage of Political Movies That Have Changed Our Times.
Jesus Christ. Calling "The Day After Tomorrow" a serious movie about global warming is like calling "2 Fast 2 Furious" a serious statement about highway safety. Way to fucking go, guys.
Well, at least Jon Stewart skewered the whole thing appropriately. I'm going to bed.
