I watched the Tony Robbins documentary. It doesn't reveal a lot about him, except that he's crazy and his followers/staffers are even crazier.

Idiocracy recently became the first movie to cross genres from satire to documentary.

^^it was interesting. i was hoping for more on who TR really was offstage and away from his work and there was very little of that.

yeah, when i was watching it i was wondering if he produced it, a lot of it just seemed to be promoting him. i'm sure he has some flaws/secretes, but they didn't touch on any of that.

i read an article that said the director attended his Date with Destiny event and then pleaded with TR for several years to allow him to film it and make the documentary. TR eventually agreed, but he also came on as producer and invested a lot of money into the production.

Just watched a pretty interesting one called Tickled, it's on HBO, it starts out as a journalist looking into a competitive tickling league that he sees a video about online, and that leads down a crazy rabbit hole when he starts looking into the company behind it with threats and intimidation, I recommend it.

I just watched "After Porn Ends" and "After Porn Ends 2." They were both interesting, but it was a lot of sad stories. The worst was the lady who became a porn star after getting a full academic scholarship and dropping out of college. Then she applied to Mensa and got accepted when they saw her SAT scores. Then her husband died in a car wreck when she was 8 months pregnant and now she is an alcoholic. What a waste of a mind. Someone like her needed to earn a STEM degree and do some good for the world.

If you haven't seen the ESPN 30 for 30 OJ: Made in America, set aside some time to watch it. It's 7 and a half hours, but it's AMAZING! I'm on my second watch now. It's on watchespn if you're a cable subscriber.

Also, another plug for the Barkley Marathons. Even if you're not a runner, it's such an interesting look into the crazy stuff people will do to themselves.

Icarus


Both on Netflix.

I waited and waited for Flatball to hit netflix. I almost bought it outright from iTunes because I was so excited for a documentary about ultimate... and then I watched it.
I'm glad I waited for it to be on netflix... disappointing...

I watched Icarus last night. It was good. Almost like a documentary and a thriller combined.




Also interested to see Machines when it comes out, as I work in the US textile industry. These scenes are pretty unrecognizable. No wonder we have difficulty being cost-competitive.
