I'm very much on the record in my belief that An Inconvenient Truth is an awful awful movie. Didn't learn anything in that movie that I couldn't have gotten off of Wikipedia, and at least that way I wouldn't have wasted $7 on the DVD (a DVD of a freakin' POWERPOINT presentation? Ugh. I'll never get over that movie, I swear).
Nevertheless, I understand that many people thought it was great and, well, good for them, however, if I ever needed further proof that Davis Guggenheim deserved a good year or two in film school before he won an Oscar (an Oscar for directing a freakin' POWERPOINT presentation?) it was this news that he will be directing the Melrose Place pilot episode.
As if the TV execs didn't learn from the complete and utter disaster that was the 90210 reboot, the idea of a Melrose Place for the new decade is just going to confirm this new remaking TV series trend won't last too much longer, I'm sure. Unfortunately, television is in a very-unironic phase right now so I don't see how it will work. Hurray then that the man who turned a freakin' POWERPOINT presentation into such a scintillating movie-watching experience is on the job! It'll go like gangbusters.
