1.
Zeitgeist (2007 Documentary)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
Mythology and belief in society today, presenting uncommon perspectives of common cultural issues. (118 mins.)
Director: Peter Joseph
“ 9.8/10.

Should be required viewing for everyone.
A shocking mind opener for both, the experienced documentary lover and those who rarely watch tv or movies, and everyone in-between.

If more people watched this documentary and others like it, i believe we would have a much more intelligent, open and informed society, armed with the information needed to make our own choices by lifting the veil on politics, war and religious dogma.

DO NOT LET THIS ONE PASS YOU BY! ” - Mychosenamewastaken
 
2.
Making a Murderer (2015 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
Filmed over a 10-year period, Steven Avery, a DNA exoneree who, while in the midst of exposing corruption in local law enforcement... (60 mins.)
“ 9.8/10.

Regardless of your opinion of Guilt or Innocence, this is a fact.
This case has FAR to many inconsistencies, violations of civil and constitutional rights, it all stinks far, far too much.
Even if only 10% of the things that the defence claims, turns out to be true (which im certain it will be) that should be more than enough to outrage a nation.

But like most people, and most first world nations, we suffer from sever short term memory loss and yes, ill say it.. Extreme apathy. We like to think we care, but deep down, we care about ourselves, our comfort and our desires.
It's only convenient to care about things like this when they entertain you. It is a selfish veneer we drape in front of ourselves to see the world through the way we want to see it.


I think it's great when noble people set out to help the world or help their fellow man, yet it never turns out the way they or anyone else hopes. They end up losing interest, something new comes along, THAT is how galvanised our ideals are, they are NOT static, they flip and change and do 180's all the time to better accommodate what suits us, what makes us comfy.

Again, even if he is guilty, this case should have been thrown out halfway through the trail, it is a travesty and a mockery of the so called "Impartial Judicial System" in the US.

If this man was rich do you think he'd be where he is right now??
If this man and his whole family were not constantly looked down on, but were instead, respected members of the society, do you think this would have happened?

Again, regardless of what you think of Avery. Something is very very wrong here.

Not interested in people telling me i just don't know about the case and have not read, or watched everything available that they claim with extreme fervour (like they have won some sort of game and need to gloat like a child.) shows the undeniable guilt of Steve and Brendan. Because I've seen everything (The interviews) and read a wholllleee lot of transcripts available on line. After doing months of research, i'm still firm in my belief that this is one messed up situation, not because it was a murder, but because nothing seems to fit and everything seems very suspicious, happening just at the right time, everything always seems to benefit Manitowoc and there unflinching hatred and over zealous need to "GET THIS MAN!"
How dare he try to sue us!

As far as I'm concerned, the biggest slap in the face to logic is that Spare key they found in Stevens room, regardless of the several thorough searches of the premises and that room particularly by the officers who were actually meant to be there, they find nada, not one shred of anything, Low and Behold in come Lenk and Colbourne, 2 officers FORBIDDEN from being involved due to conflict of interest, and guess what they find on there first search... The Key, in plain view.
Seriously? It sounds like a goof in a movie for god sakes, it's such a slap in the face of rational minded people and in general the laws of physics.

Anyways.
Watch... Now. ” - Mychosenamewastaken
 
3.
A Murder in the Park (2014 Documentary)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
Documentary filmmakers assert that Anthony Porter - a former death-row inmate who was spared the death penalty thanks to the efforts of a college journalism program - was actually guilty, and an innocent man was sent to prison. (91 mins.)
“ 9.8/10.

One of the most disturbing documentaries you will ever see.

It looked so random, i thought it was going to be another "Oh no, man is in prison for something he didn't do and get's released *insert cheer* But nope, this one is something very unique, it absolutely blew my mind.

This documentary is in a league of it's own, it's unknown amongst most TV and documentaries watchers, yet it's one of the best, most original and most shocking documentaries i have EVER seen.

A must watch. ” - Mychosenamewastaken
 
4.
Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills (1996 Documentary)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
A horrific triple child murder leads to an indictment and trial of three nonconformist boys based on questionable evidence. (150 mins.)
“ 9.8/10.

One of the first, and most intriguing (and at the same time, sickening) documentaries to show the absolutely absurdity that is the US justice system, and how they can and are willing to squash any human being as long as they are not wealthy and/or powerful.

The lengths that this system goes to, to keep certain people in jail (even with overwhelming evidence of their innocence) with nothing but circumstantial evidence which is paper thin at best, is a real eye opener.

This is a real shocker, one of those documentaries in which you will find the need to binge watch all 3 addendum's and all the stand alone documentaries, movies and books on the subject.

Once this is seen, you will never be able to see the US justice system in the same light again. ” - Mychosenamewastaken
 
5.
Only the Dead (2015 Documentary)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
Australian journalist Michael Ware's experiences in Iraq during the 2003 war and after. (77 mins.)
“ 9.7/10.

I absolutely LOVED this doco, however, be warned, it is INCREDIBLY
intense.
The violence and graphic nature of this gritty conflict is show in full detail and the documentary maker goes as deep as i have ever seen any foreigner go into the world of the suicide bombers.

This guy honestly has some of the biggest balls i have ever witnessed.

Respect...

NOT FOR THE FEINT HEARTED!

You have been warned... ” - Mychosenamewastaken
 
6.

A filmmaker decides to memorialize a murdered friend when his friend's ex-girlfriend announces she is expecting his son. (95 mins.)
Director: Kurt Kuenne
“ 9.7/10.

One of the most heartbreaking things i have ever seen.
A clear example of the leeway given to Women in the western societies and the obvious failure (once again) witnessed in the justice systems of the USA and it's neighbour Canada. ” - Mychosenamewastaken

“ 9.7/10.

Peter and Fran Jackson give us a fresh look at the WM3 case as they re-examine it, bringing to light extraordinary evidence with the aid of some of the worlds most renowned experts in their respective fields (such as forensic investigators etc.)

A must watch for those who watched Paradise Lost 1, 2 and 3 or even those who have never heard of the case.

It's best to start with the original Paradise Lost however, this should really be considered an addendum or the fourth part in the series. ” - Mychosenamewastaken

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X

A MUST WATCH, mainly for the most extreme skeptic.
It's also an excellent watch for people naive of the subject in general, or your occasional UFO investigator to the most fervent over zealous believer.

Personally, i think if you are a skeptic and/or someone who flat out denies, and refuses to believe in this kind of thing at all, Labelling any believer as a nut job or hick with no integrity, this should be quiet an interesting experience for you.

The down side is, if you are not open minded and/or flat out ignorant, going into this with doco with mindset in which you cannot accept even the most obvious factual evidence and the many high ranking officials who are highly respected in their fields flat out telling you these stories, in which they have no reason or gain no benefit from lying.
These are some of the preeminent doctors, high ranking military men who were privy to these documents and seem to have no reason to collude just to lie to the public.

It amazes me that people can be so ignorant and naive in this time in history.
They live in a world of "My government would never harm me and only looks out for its citizens best interests in this great Free, Democracy."

This worries me the most, The stripping away of the constitution when soon it's going to be smashed too pieces, the same way it has been done over and over again in the past, mainly via false flag attacks, which are used to rally a country into a tempestuous fervour (EG. The burning down of a building in Nazi Germany that Hitler used to rally his masses) making them outraged enough to fight and die for the freedom they think they are protecting, yet are actually helping erode, and will no longer retain democratic rights, the complete utter refusal to even look at the evidence and facts or weigh them, yet instead, they read Woman's Weekly and watch Keeping up with the Kardashians and watch every news channel at all times of day, spoon feeding that propaganda garbage to the masses (Not seeming to realise that these TV corporations are all traced back to 4 or 5 Multi-Billion even Multi-Trillion dollar parent companies who in reality actually control pretty much every single facet of our main news outlet station, newspapers, highly visited news sites in most first world countries.

So can you kind of see now, how it is possible? The higher ups ban or censor a story the are told to change, or deem it necessary themselves, the mid companies don't want to loose their jobs, so they again send it down to the actual print or tv stations, by that drop in the chain of command, most facts are left out, the bottom stations who broadcast would get very little of the actual story other than a brief censored outline of what occurred (if not completely tampered with and made into something completely different)
These people can easily steer the news and therefor public opinion into whatever they are ordered to.

There is a massive misconception in the statement "No way, could all these people be able to keep a secret this big, it's not possible'
And that would make sense, if the secrets were told to everyone, but they are not, these people are not dumb, hey have been doing these things for century's (again, please do some research) they are deals brokered behind closed doors, in sprawling mansions with only a few of the most elite, privy to the real operation to put into play, see therefore, no one knows about it, there is no records on any level of what was said, and the highest secrets only are discussed on the highest level with the lowest amount of people, From there, they trickle down bits and pieces as they see fit and their plan is masterfully woven, like a spider web. Each layer further out knows less and less, but again, only the top elites know what is actually happening.

THAT'S how you keep a secret so big like this.

It has been proven over and over again how many times the US and other nations have lied in order to keep the public in the dark, they say it's for national defence, but it is defiantly not, it is for THERE defence, so we don't raid the streets and lynch them for all the hamster wheels they have been making us run on day after day for hundreds of years like animals, whilst they live like kings laughing at us idiots, us peasants who are too weak and stupid, too apathetic.

Why? It's very simple, these people literally rule the world, they own 99& of the wealth and with that wealth, if you don't think they can pull off pretty much anything they want, you are too far gone to reach and i feel sorry for you.

I don't believe in all conspiracy Theories, actually, hardly any, but it takes a very stubborn and weak willed person to refute logic and rationalism when it is shoved right in there faces, because it damages their ego SEVERELY, what they think they know is that they are right, and we all know what happens when you attack someone elses beliefs and smash them to smithereens via logic, their world falls apart and they just cant handle it.
If they were wrong about that, what else could they be wrong about, you see how it works? It's a defence mechanism.

See, ill be attacked as someone who is liar and conspiracy theory nut jobs because they couldn't possibly believe it is true, yet the facts are out there, it takes a few minutes on google to find out that most of the media in the US are all under a few parent companies. As one fella said "there is no way they could keep these conspiracies private, it's ridiculous to think that all the news corporations somehow collaborate with each other to censor the news as they see fit" They claim this is ridiculous and impossible, not knowing, again, all these places you get news from are all connected, they take their orders from the top, just like an army chain of command.

Obviously quiet bias, regardless of the self made statements made that this man is a sceptic, it becomes quiet clear, quiet quickly he is defiantly nothing of the sort.

However, just because someone is bias, does not necessarily mean they are wrong, just means they are more likely to be misled by the "evidence" because they see what they want.

There are 2 things any viewer or believer/denier in conspiracy theories and conspiracy theory documentaries need ask themselves.

1. Could a conspiracy this big be kept from the public, that is the main thing i hear when people deny conspiracy theories, even ones that have been proven and have ended up being declassified and acknowledged by the governments of the world due to their outing.
The sinking of the Lusitania would be one good example.
Another would be the Manhattan project.
There are countless more (google them, don't be lazy)

So yes, i believe it can easily be done. And i believe it is done alot more often then we like to believe.

To think the government (especially the US government) wouldn't lie to it's own people is just incredibly naive and ignorant. It's not even a question any logical person can ask, it's a fact, it happens all the time.

2. Why is this documentary being sold instead of being released for free if the makers claim that they just want everyone to know the truth because of things like the typical - they can't live with their haunted conscious anymore (lol) and the public needs to know!
You should have an answer for that yourself.

Monetary gain should always be the biggest giveaway when dealing with documentaries of this sort.

However, this documentary was an excellent view into the world of UFO's and ET's.

Real or not, it was a fascinating watch.

Would recommend. ” - Mychosenamewastaken

WWII in HD (2009 Mini-Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
Follow the lives of soldiers who lived World War II, through previously unseen color footage. (60 mins.)
“ 9.3/10.

Excellent documentary with lots of never seen before footage all cleaned up and colourised in HD.

A little heavy on the American campaigns, but it is an American doco, so it makes sense, This however, takes nothing away from the amazing editing, score and the Sensual, Melow and Sexual voice of our Narrator, "BARRY" The Garry Sinise "WHITE" (Seriously, he should be the only person allowed to do voice overs for anything. Just listening to his voice make my nipples hard as glass cutters.)

All in all, a masterfully mesmerising all round genuinely kick ass ride, It is very well put together for a mini series chronicling WWII (mostly the pacific theatres of war)

I would have liked to see more about the Russians and the European Theatre, but The USA did not deliver the main thrust that should be acknowledged as the sword that broke the Nazi Regime in to splinters.. it was alllll the Russians. I find it uncanny and honestly Amazing that in this day and age, people STILL do not have a clue who really beat The Third Reich.

I'm not saying the US and UK didn't help, but it was mainly the Russians, starting with Operation Barbarossa (Biiiiiggg Mistake on that one Mr. Adolf.)

As we all know however, That the Propaganda used to help us band together to despise and destroy Nation Socialism, is the same propaganda still used to this very day in very insidious ways on it's own people, often if not always, for the wrong reasons.

It's now all to often to here it used as a weapon against it's own people, rather than a rallying cry for a true need to galvanise the masses for an impending red alert, Something i find disgustingly abhorrent, for it is now used mainly to achieve whatever goal the higher ups wish for, like a game for Politicians and the Rich who spend their time in Sprawling manors who have too much gold in their pockets and too much time on their hands, whilst the middle and low classes end up in combat, dying by the thousands, these cowards sit behind a desk and collect yet more gold via corrupt incestuous open door deals between war mongering politicians and the men who own the corporations that are responsible for making all wartime munitions, aircraft's & Ships etc.

Dwight D. Eisenhower gave us a stern warning during his farewell address, that if we left it unchecked or let our guards down (which we have) the Military Industrial Complex would one day end up running the country and by extension most of the world, because hey, at the end of the day, everyone wants to be rich. If it costs millions of lives, who cares?!

All in all, defiantly highly recommended if you are a lover of all things war or even if you are a newbie to WWII and are just starting to investigate, this is the perfect place to start.
