Watched that yesterday. Really good and worrying 




 
You don't seem like much of a worrier- what was worrying about it?

Massive peado cover ups. When I say worrying, I wasn't actually worrying IRL. Just wanted to be clear
 
Also, Holy Hell is very good. Saw someone mention it, Law maybe. Crazy

Hitlers Last Year in colour. Quite into world war 2 stuff these days, this was fascinating. Seeing it all colourised just makes it seem all the more real somehow, like it actually happened, instead of feeling so detached from it.

Zero Day is an interesting watch. About the Stuxnet computer virus supposedly created by the US & Israel as a cyberweapon.
 
Holy Hell was good...can't believe that guy was still up to his same old tricks at the end! Weird old cunt.

Man v Snake on Netflix. Very similar to King of Kong, and has lots of the same people in it.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2933794/
 

If you ever played the game "Snake" on your early model Nokia cellphone, then you're familiar with "Nibbler," the original "snake" game. MAN VS SNAKE tells the story of Tim McVey (the gamer not the bomber) who in 1984, on a single quarter (and over forty-four hours of non-stop play) was the first person in history to score over one billion points on a video game. This historic accomplishment led the City of Ottumwa to declare a civic day in Tim's honor (Tim McVey Day) and present him with the key to the city. Twenty-five-years later, when rumors of a higher score surface online, attributed to Italian kick-boxing champion Enrico Zanetti, it calls into question everything Tim McVey has believed for decades and forces him to make a decision: either set a new world record, or risk losing his legacy forever. Now middle-aged and out of shape, Tim discovers that reclaiming the Nibbler title will not be easy. Packed with unexpected twists and turns, the film documents one of the epic achievements of the classic gaming era and proves a powerful tale of the triumph of the human spirit.

New Vice doc sounds interesting
http://www.vice.com/en_se/video/iceman
 
Wim Hof first caught the attention of scientists when he proved he was able to stay submerged in ice for one hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing. Since then, he's climbed Mount Everest in his shorts, resisted altitude sickness, completed a marathon in the Namibian Desert with no water and proven – under a laboratory setting – that he's able to influence his autonomic nervous system and immune system at will.
 
Almost everything Wim has done was previously thought to be impossible, but he's not a freak of nature; he's a master of meditation.

I know it's old now, but watched Cartel Land this week. Properly harrowing how fucking Mexico is right now.
 
Also watched a Storyville last night about James Foley, the first guy to be publicly executed by ISIS. Even more harrowing. They're talking about him as if he is actually Jesus at the end, but he did seem to be a pretty inspirational chap. Does make it pretty hard to take when it comes to the end. His family all have pretty interesting takes on the whole thing too. Would definitely recommend.

He swam 100m under solid ice and his retinas froze half way. He says he can train anyone to be able to withstand the cold.

Easily one of the best documentarys i've ever seen. In my top ten without a doubt. Visually brilliant, the storytelling is amazing and cuts as deep as possible into the situation.The twists are worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster.

The American angle with the play army border clowns was not necessary. Utter jokers. That aside it's a masterful piece of documentary.

As Modus said, truly harrowing. Not for the feint hearted.

It's a rare 10/10 in my opinion.

O.J. Made In America. ESPN 30 for 30, 5 part series. It's long at a total of 7 hours 30 minutes but a good insight into L.A. life through the 70's-90's.

Now about to watch that cartel land, sounds good.
 
Watched Adam Curtis - Hypernormalization last night, thats a pretty fucked up documentary, really interesting though. This sums it up perfectly "In the film, Curtis argues that since the 1970s, governments, financiers, and technological utopians have given up on the complex "real world" and built a simple "fake world" that is run by corporations and kept stable by politicians"

Really enjoyed Requiem for the American Dream, on Netflix. Interesting to see Noam Chomsky's take on how the economic divide has taken place.

LOL to be fair, Cartel Land is pretty fucking Mexico.
 
I wonder what word I intended to put into that sentence.
