Apparently, my theory that snakes have scared so many people since childhood that it would not make for a blockbuster summer film proved accurate, as "Snakes on a Plane" did a paltry $13.9 million this weekend ($15.3 million if you include the Thursday night previews), according to Box Office Mojo.
Meanwhile, there are at least 25 people Saturday night at the 7 p.m. screening at Market Street Cinema of "An Inconvenient Truth," the documentary that follows Al Gore around in his discussions about global warming. That's a pretty good number still at Market Street for a film that's been out several weeks now. As for the film, it had plenty of facts to offer that I had never heard before, and I've heard the global-warming crowd's figures often in the past several years. Gore puts it in undertandable language and visuals. It had some slow moments, but overall was a good way to spend a couple of ours.
