Your favorite documentary? Answered

I actually have several.

Planet Earth is amazing. We're halfway through it right now. The next episode is about Jungles. :D I also watched one called Living Dolls on youtube last month and it was really fascinating. And the one about Prussian Blue - Nazi Pop Twins.

Oh, and Outfoxed, it's about Fox News. I love to hate them. :D

One more: Who Killed the Electric Car? Watch it and try not to get angry. I think that might be impossible.

Now I'll stop rambling. I want to learn about new ones. :D


[http://thepiratebay.org/tor/3556960/Jesus_Camp_(2006)_-_on_evangelical_christians_in_USA Jesus camp] - Very objective
The Root of all Evil - Ted Haggard scene is scary
The Most Hated Family in America - Case of a group of individuals with insane / hateful beliefs, who get persecuted for their ideas, and somehow feel their persecution brings them validation

If you can't guess, I'm not very religious.

(Oh yeah, and the Zeitgeist, but that has already been mentioned)

Yeah it is; actually it's about the whole Phelps family. It's another fantastic Louis Theroux BBC documentary. I recommend most of the Louis Theroux docs.

I've been watching it for a little while now. I'm at a loss for words on these people. It seemed like Louis kind of got offended over a few things they have said. I don't really blame him though.

I've been wanting to see all three of those, actually! I've seen a lot of clips from Jesus Camp - highly disturbing stuff. Reminds me of church camp. But I love when they start forcing the children to speak in tongues and one little girl seems to get stuck saying "chicky" over and over again. She sounds like my boyfriend's Cuban grandmother. Yay! I think more than anything that I'm trying to find humor in it, though I normally just end up really angry. :P

who killed the electric car.

Ha! I have outfoxed on my shelf right now :p I have given up on TV news media and their internet spawn (that's across the board - not just Fox) :/ Planet Earth - absolutely... I wish I had an HD method of watching it. Absolutely amazing and very well done. SiCKO, I thought, was pretty good... It's the only Moore moviefilm I've seen... But I can sympathize to some degree... My parents have been waiting to turn 50 so they can finally get better insurance through AARP (they're self insured as they own what's classified as a "micro business") :/ We're going to have a "Happy Semi-Centenial" birthday for my father in a few weeks :p

Also... Touching the Void - Story of two climbers and their perilous journey up the west face of Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes in 1985. After watching it I felt like I'd just climbed the mountain! Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer - Nick Broomfield's second documentary on Aileen Wuornos, who was executed in 2002 for killing seven men.

My recommendations would be: Dig! - Documentary following 2 rocks bands; the Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Dandy Warhols, compiled from 7 years of footage. The King of Kong - Diehard video game fans compete to break World Records on classic arcade games. Brilliant! One Day in September - Oscar winning documentary about the 1972 Munich Olympics, that were interrupted by Palestinian terrorists taking Israeli athletes hostage. Gripping stuff. I'm off to watch 'Who Killed the Electric Car' and 'Room 335' on your recommendations...

A great motorcycle flick "On Any Sunday" some awesome shots about motorcycling on any Sunday of the year. Made by the same guys who did "Endless Summer" about surfing around the world.

I watched a documentary the other day called the future is wild it what scientist think animals will look like in 1000000 years

I want to see Who Killed the Electric Car. As for favorite documentary... Thats a tough one because I cannot think of any off the top of my head. Typically I watch ones on The History Channel, Discovery, etc. But I don't remember their names until I see them again. I have been watching the Most Evil series recently, but I don't know if that is considered a documentary or not. Has anyone seen Sicko? If so, is it worth watching?

I saw one episode of Most Evil and I really liked it just because I knew who everyone was. Though I cheated a couple times and got out my serial killer encyclopedia. :P

You have a serial killer encyclopedia? I just looked the people up online...

A couple, actually. Used to be what I was fanatic about. One of the first books I checked out with my library card when I was a kid was a book about Jack the Ripper. I used to know most everything about serial killers, but for some reason they've fallen out of my favor lately. I'm thinking of selling some of my books about them because I have tons.

I'm reformed! It didn't manifest into anything! Just don't make me angry. :D

Oh. :( DAMNING EVIDENCE INDEED! Am I at least charming like Dexter? :D

He has a white hand... Did you chop it off, again!? WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT THAT?!!? Sḯgh...

What type of meat was that pot roast made of exactly? "I cleaned up afterward! :)" Of course you did, if you mean cleanings the blood off your clothes...

Zeitgeist. It is about religious, government, 911, and a lot of other conspiracies.

This Is Spinal Tap. sure, its mockumentary, but it is amazing.

I really liked Supersize Me.

I forgot about that one. I thought it was pretty good. Really makes you question getting a Big Mac...

Gimme big hips and a side order of thunder-thighs LOL

Honestly, my parents make me stay away from fast food joints. part of it is because they are both physicians, and they see the effects of the epidemic all the time. The film is disgusting, but a wake up call.

Yeah, I was kind of making fun of a commercial from tv, the line is actully:

Can I Have Some Blubber With The Thunder Thighs Please

or something like that.

Here is a very poor video of a small portion of the actual commercial (for Subway, I think):

I need to see that one again, honestly. I haven't seen it all the way through!

I like the Civil War, by Ken Burns. Yes, all 19 hours of it.

I love that most evil show, its on at like 11.pm though and don't finish till 12, and I gotta be up at like half 5, so I'm always knackered, still don't know who ranks as a number 22. Any survival show! Ray mears, bear grylls etc. myth busters(love that)deadliest catch, anything on the documentaries section really, I friggin hate(HATE)Eastenders, holby city, big brother, I could go on for hours....

I watched a documentary on John Waters. Which was great.

Anything David Attenborough. And "Grizzly Man", it's freakin' awesome.

I loved Supersize me, it put me off junk food for life.

I watched Who Killed the Electric Car while sitting in the same row as the Mid-America Electric Automobile Association, nearly all of whom had driven there in EVs. There was much cheering.

I've seen who killed the electric car..not bad.

Andrew Jinkens, room 335.

It's about a ninteen year old who moves into a retirement home for a month. It's really moving, and he befriends the residents. It sounds boring, but it's actually really good.

It looks really interesting, just from the trailer. I will have to hunt this one down. Thank you!
