Movie Description:
The 'Hurt Locker' meets 'An Inconvenient Truth', THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES is the Emmy? nominated investigation on how climate change impacts increased resource scarcity, migration and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability. Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS, border walls and the European refugee crisis - laying bare how climate change interacts with other socio-political factors to exacerbate societal tensions and spark conflict.

    Cooper and Hemingway: The True Gen is an unprecedented look at the bond between two of the most iconic artists of the 20th century.Utter opposites... nothing in common. The cowboy and the suburbanite. The conservative and the liberal. And yet these two artists (a word both men scoffed at) were the best of friends, right up to their deaths a mere seven weeks apart in 1961. But is the friendship of these two men really so surprising? A study of these two men is a study of the 20th century. Their internationally renowned careers (Cooper, two Best Actor Academy Awards; Hemingway, Nobel and Pulitzer Prizes) were played out over the same turbulent decades: the hedonistic 20s, the grim Depression 30s, the war-ravaged 40s, and the deceptively slumbering 50s; throughout, their public and private lives connected, parted, re-connected, intertwined, over-lapped, and collided. It is no small irony that the lives of these two men should suffer untimely ends at the dawn of the erupting sixties. ...

A Lame Blame

This misrepresentation was aimed at the gullible and easily led. The climate does play a hand at creating famine, natural disasters, etc., which in turn can cause civil unrest and mass migration; but to put all ones eggs in the terror basket as the sole cause of the numerous pockets of global misery......is a real stretch......that even Elastic Man would have difficulty attempting.This documentary is more of a promo presentation for the American military with transparent attempts at declaring that they alone can combat this global menace.I gave it a 3 points on the quality of the cinematography. I deducted 7 marks for its outlandish foolishness and overt stupidity.

Beautifuly shot yet flawed

First and formost, this movie looks great!There are many drone shot scenes, well set-up interview environments, great shots and clips from the ground and fantastic computer generated simulations. It does add upp to a nice to see documentary. Add an important topic to it such as climate change and its impact on geopolitics, while also pointing out the important fact that climate change is only part of chaos at hand. and it seems difficult to fail, right? Yet it does feel lackluckster. While pointing out the threat of chinese global expansion along with a view other countries it never dares to talk critically about its own, the USA. This slowly meanders into the movie feeling oddly xenophobic, and sadly so. I really liked many parts of this documentary, but i cant let myself fully enjoy what i was seeing as i had this nagging feeling that it also wanted me to feel better about all the US, despite all shortcomings it has on its own.

But is the sky REALLY falling?

Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" begins with the assumption that man-made global warming is real, and proceeds to blame every flood, hurricane, endangered species, and other natural disaster on CO2 from the evil industrialized nations.Ten years later, "The Age of Consequences" picks up the narrative by blaming every political crisis in the world on the same dubious cause. Madeline Albright, Secretary of State in the Clinton-Gore administration, is billed as the star of the film. Other politicians and military personnel also contribute. Climatologists and meteorologists are notably absent.Those who are already terrified by global warming (oops-I mean climate change) may enjoy being further terrorized by this film. The continuous music track, reminiscent of the soundtrack of "Jaws" will help. But if you are looking to be informed, look elsewhere.
