1. More than a little disappointing - We were very excited to watch this at home as we had missed watching at the cinema. The first mins was interesting to watch but as the movie went on it lost our interest. We just about made it to the end a real shame as we both grew up from the start of the Bowie era.
2. Some interesting moments but not that many - I am a Bowie fan. Love the last concert video/ movie of concerts he had done. That was the Bowie I liked. The early stuff was a staged show of LSD emotions. And thats what you have here. Snipits of Bowie and then an acid flashback trip and performance art and backdrop filming of performance art shown on stage during songs. Nice to see Mick Ronson again. He took a long time to get recognized into the rock and roll hall of fame. But he went literally from garbage man to the top of his profession and truly deserving of all time. He was a virtuoso! Gone too soon. This has a few early pics I had not seen of young David Jones. And a couple video clips of interviews.
Earth moving documentary.NOPE. But a semi interesting look into the past as there will be no new footage or concerts and we are left to absorb pieces of what he left us with and I do like to absorb it all as the man the icon who was gone way too soon.
3. Incoherent garbage. - If you’re looking for a music video with snippets of thoughts, this is for you. If you’re expecting an actual documentary that pays homage to one of the greatest rock icons of all time; forget about it! This is perhaps one of the most incoherent messes I’ve ever seen. It’s like Andy Warhol and Hunter S Thompson did acid together and then had a baby, that was also on acid. Zero stars wasn’t an option.

1. Bravery I'll Never Pretend to Possess - Disclaimer: I am not a climber. I was blown away not only by Pemba, Ger, and Marco's heroism, but by the effect that the lack of oxygen had on the memories of the men and the woman who almost perished on K in (everyone had a different story). The K footage was gorgeous, down to the ominous pointed shadow of K. There was a confusing story structure to the film, however, with the interspersed commentary of the Italian climber. I wasn't always sure whose story I was following. Perhaps that confusion was the point. Overall a great film, however. The spirit of K, sparkling, mocking, and deceptively out of reach, is no friend to Hominidae.
2. Honors the true heroes - The Summit isn’t just a run-of-the-mill docudrama of a tragedy. The movie also honors the actions of admirable mountaineers like Ger MacDonald, Marco and Pemba. These men resisted the temptation of the “every man for himself" mentality that high-altitude climbers face when things get dangerous. Instead, they risked their lives, and in one case gave their life, in an effort to save their fellow climbers. They are an inspiration to climbers everywhere, and this movie honors their strength and character!
3. Great movie as i watched it twice - Very well done as the scenery was fantastic and the ones who lived to tell the story did such an incredible job.Cecilie Skog is such a very beautiful woman and survived K by such a narrow margin while losing her husband in the accident! I will definitely buy this movie! Thumbs Up!!!!!!!!
4. interesting interviews & beautiful scenery - The storyline is a bit disjointed and confusing. The participants were also confused and oxygen deprived at the time. Character exploration was revealing and interesting. Never could determine if they brought that dead body down to Camp . These and movies like them continue to demonstrate the lack of organization and professionalism that could be applied to exploration efforts. These activities should only be attempted by certified professionals with proper equipment and military style organization. Otherwise, the results are more likely as is depicted.
5. This is why you should care ! - Just because you lack the motivation to leave your own house and consider walking two blocks extreme exercise and adventure, maybe you should care. Perhaps this will give others inspiration to try something amazing in their own lives and risk their life doing it instead of watching and easily criticizing . Now , go for a walk. You need it.
6. Summit - NO. Who cares - Some climbers climbed one of the most dangerous peaks in the world where one in four climbers die. So, some climbers died. The editing is horrible, the survivors were oxygen deprived and don't really remember events exactly. WHO CARES! You climb this mountain and you are nearly committing suicide. Why should I care?

1. Fantastic Movie- Wonderful and highly recommended - My fiance and I were absolutely mesmerized by this movie and the story the director and camera men so richly captured. The story of dedication, struggle, harsh environment, and ultimately the sacrifice for love and procreation was an incredible story. But it also makes man look in the mirror and I wonder how much we impact the Penguins way of life by our lifestyle and the vanishing ice pack. Gives you something to think about. Great movie, a must see!!!!!
2. Amazing movie, so cute - This movie is absolutly amazing. These penguins go through so much just to have babies. So insperational, but at times can be very sad. Penguins are my favorite animals, so I wish that iTunes had the movie "Happy Feet." C'mon iTunes, I've been waiting for that movie to be on here ever sence it came out! Still a fantastic movie. Morgan Freeman's narration is great.
3. Epic! Wonderful! Gorgeus! - ENG: Why not five? I would like to put and a half, anyway. Great film! one year filmation in the antartica with a great cinematography! Morgan Freeman just born to be a wildlife documentary narrator! If you would like to know, this was filmed in super mm for months. ESP: ¿Por qué no ? yo le pondría y media, es demaciado (para todo). Gran documental! un año de filmación en la Antártida con una gran cinematografía! Morgan Freeman nació para narrar documentales de naturaleza! Si les intereza, fue filmada durante meses en super mm.
4. Great Documentary... - This is a very good film on the mating march the penguins go on. If there's anything that would deterr anyone from seeing this film is that it's a very heart-breaking film. The torment these penguins must go through just to mate is just cringeworthy. If you're a person who can handle watching animals die or freeze, they you may survive this film. Overall, buy it/rent it, but the film is so GRIM AND DEPRESSING, that I wouldn't. Hey, Lover -- why is your username containing a reference to mine? ? ?

1. This is not worth the watch for so many reasons. - Please do not watch, or if you do understand, mass conversation points remain omitted because they do not suit the presentation's narrative. There are points of view from the presenters that are neglectful of much. A better option is Dark Girls. It covers specific topics in a more valuable and meaningful way.
2. Waste of brain cells and oh yeah you’re a racist if you’re white. - Waste of time. Only watch if you want to be told because you’re White your a racist. Wonder if the Jamaican family members think that I am?? Sad that if I made a film about how black people are inherently racist towards whites/asian etc the heat that I would take.
3. Ingenius! - The way Saira and Regina help white women open their eyes and see the inherent racism they benefit from is simply ingenius, oftentimes just asking them simple questions like "who would you rather switch places with in society?" This film is a gift to us all and hopefully sparks even more conversations about our deep-seeded ideas of racism and how we each subconscioulsy believe we are "good" and others are "bad" rather than confronting that we are are all brainwashed into a system of racism.
4. A Must Watch - This is an excellent film and a must watch for all white women. I experienced discomfort at times, but facing this discomfort is crucial for change to happen. White women need to remember that discomfort is not going to kill us, but white supremacy certainly kills BIWOC and we need to take an active role in dismantling it. Ultimately, this film left me with a sense of hope.
5. Fantastic - too bad it wasn't more recent - I thought this was great, and showed what I've known all along as a white woman: too many other white women are ignorant to what's going on. I don't find it to be satire in any way. The endeavor was powerful and needed. The only thing I wish they did differently is to film a dinner after George Floyd was killed in order to see how that event changed how white women emotionally dealt with and acknowledged that tragedy.
6. Communication Is Key! - This is an important piece of work. It shows the effects of racism in all our lives. We are stronger together than divided. Those in power want use to fight amongst ourselves so that they can stay in power. When we fight racism in the face of opposition, that is when we know we are truly making a difference. This film shows the true costs of racism. Even if only one or two minds are opened, that is what makes the difference.
7. Necessary Viewing For All White Women - Step one in deconstructing your racism as a white woman, is acknowledging your complicity in white supremacy & privilege, and being wiling to hear the hard truths without defensiveness. Deconstructing Karen features a dinner with white women at different stages in that process. Saira Rao and Regina Jackson graciously share vulnerable moments from their own lives in order to try to help these women understand how their “color blindness” is actually incredibly destructive. At the point of filming this, they weren’t sure they would be able to keep their business afloat because not enough white women were willing to pay a frankly nominal fee in order to learn how to do better and help dismantle white supremacy. And DK makes it quite clear that there is no chance of the system being dismantled without white women having honest conversations and confronting each other about their internalized racism. The courage, bravery, selflessness, and utter tenacity it takes for Jackson and Rao to do this work is astonishing. As a white person, I will never be able to fully comprehend how they do it, but I am eternally grateful to them for it. I suppose that’s part of the system of white supremacy though; because of the color of my skin, I don’t have to spend precious emotional energy teaching others how their words and actions/inaction affect my life and livelihood. Deconstructing Karen centers around a dinner with Rao and Jackson confronting ww about their racism, but it’s so much more. It also explores instances of white women being directly responsible for incredible harm towards and erasure of Black and brown people throughout history. The truth is ugly, but necessary. If reading this review makes you uncomfortable: good. That means it’s for you. Rent/Buy it and watch it with a group of your white friends. Challenge each other, challenge yourself. In addition to this documentary, Regina Jackson and Saira Rao have a book (an excellent companion to the film) called ‘White Women: Everything You Already Know About Your Own Racism and How To Do Better.’ Fellow white women, we MUST do better.
8. The Most Empowering Resource Today - It is the most resourceful tool that galvanized my inner Asian-American identity. It’s superb, educational, empowering, and uncomfortable media I’ve ever seen. Thank you Regina and Saira. Thank you for waking the ef out of my personal advocacy and allowing me to use this tool to stand up for the racism in and out of my circle. (This is my first iTunes review)
9. Amazing and Necessary!!! - Regina Jackson and Saira Rao do an amazing just at having a dinner conversation that creates REAL conversation, whether the guests appreciate it or not! White Women, we need to always have these conversations with each other! I just rented this movie but now I will purchase and have it to own!!!! America Wake up, white supremacy Hurts Us All!!!!
10. A Must See - We, white women, must start by listening and validating BIPOC’s lived experiences and acknowledging our racism. Saira and Regina’s continued willingness to model courage and vulnerability even after receiving death threats and messages full of hate is nothing short of remarkable. I want a better world for my children, and I believe we white women have the power to be changemakers in this work. Saira and Regina’s final thoughts in the film left me feeling hopeful. My fellow white women sisters, please watch this documentary and do the work.

1. Suspenseful and Sad Documentary - In spring of I got on a chairlift at Alpine Meadows. Another skier got on next to me. The first thing I remember noticing was that she was missing part of one of her legs. We began tio talk on the ride up and she to;ld me her story of surviving the avalanche that ocurred in winter of . She descriubed the five days she was trapped in the rubble and how determined she was to survive and to ski again once she recovered. We spent the afternoon together and met the next day and rode some more. I am sure she would notm remember me but I never forgot her. And seeing her again in this gut wrenching documentary brought back the memories of her smile, of her courage and her love of skiing. I am glad to see she is still keeping on with her life and her will to recover and live a full life has been paramount. Way to go Ann!
2. Emotionally raw - well done! - Very emotional and gripping recounting of the avalanche disaster and miracle rescue from those that were present at the time. Forty years later and it's still raw. Current interviews laced with pictures and videos from the era are masterfully interplayed while visually feeling the storm on the mountain. Exceptionally well done!
3. Gripping from start to finish! - I grew up skiing at Alpine and never realized it was a ticking time bomb. So much so, you learn in the film that avalanche science was birthed there. But most moving is the the impact of an unprecedented storm that threw all predictions out the window and the heartfelt story of the toll it took on the ski patrol responsible for everyone's safety. Even though you know the ending the film is gripping as those moments described by the survivors is like yesterday for them... you're left with the sense that thanks to the process of telling their stories for the film, a level of healing from the trauma is finally able to happen... I highly recommend it!
4. Amazing documentary! - I was just a kid when this happened but I remember it in the news. The story is told mostly through actual footage and interviews. The camera work on the interviews is phenomenal. The emotion is captured perfectly. They have amazing footage from when it happened. So cool to see familiar newscasters. Gives you a new appreciation for the work that goes into keeping ski resorts, especially Alpine, safe.
5. Gut wrenching - I did not know this story but was told about it and this documentary recently. Tragic but compelling. I think what struck me is the honesty of the people involved. Good people making soul crushing decisions. They went through this horrific event years ago and it still lives with them. Would I be able to handle this as well as they did? That was the thought I kept coming back to while watching. stars. Worth your time and $.

1. One Event In Depth. A Strong Mosaic - A ufo crashes in Brazil. Interview of credible military, police, airport, families, and other witnesses. Many don’t want to talk, initially. Put it all together, and you will be challenged to find any other plausible explanation, other than what was described. Excellent!
2. I never knew about this incident until now… - Great story telling. The interviews were shown without voiceovers, so it takes a bit of effort to read the translations. But I believe this was done so you could hear the people’s real voices for yourself. Feeling the emotions from the people who experienced the events was unexpected. It shook me. Must watch (which means reading the subtitles)!
3. Another great UAP doc by James Fox - IMO no one does UAP docs better than James Fox. This one certainly didn’t disappoint. I appreciate James isn’t pushing an agenda or trying to force beliefs on anyone. Just like James said in the doc, watch it, process everything you see & hear (including the numerous eye witness accounts), and then draw your own conclusions. I have a feeling this documentary is just the tip of the iceberg for the Varginha case, and that we’ll be learning more about this case in the future as more witnesses come forward. Also loved the hours of extra features. Great work James & team.
4. EYE OPENING FILM - This documentary has shifted my entire world view on the UFO/Alien Phenomenon. We’re not alone and there is % obfuscation happening behind our backs. I hope this film incentivizes government officials and militaries to reveal and declassify obtained footage of UFOs and other lifeforms that have visited us.
5. No Denying It - Best documentary on any phenomena to date (and only nd to his other documentary ’The Phenomenon’). James Fox is passionate and truthful about everything he does. He is also a relentless pursuer of the truth. I double dog dare you to watch this movie and try to refute what happened. There are photographs and video of this being and it’s my belief we will see them very soon. Don’t sleep on this one!
6. Meh - For as much time as the director spent researching this seems shockingly low rent as far as documentary filmmaking goes. It was difficult to watch and poorly edited, and even for documentary standards surprisingly how basic simple effects are. Any teenager on an iPhone could edit and create better effects than this director. Which is a shame because the incident itself is worthy of attention. But, unless watching shaky cameras and smartphone cameras are your thing, the whole thing seems like a money grab with an ending teasing evidence which probably doesn’t exist.
7. Incredible documentary - James Fox makes incredible documentaries. The Phenomenon introduced me to the fact that there in indeed a reality to this phenomena. Moment of Contact takes you to get people who have had direct contact with a creature from the unknown. Keeping our heads buried in the sand is not a good philosophy and I applaud James for taking a serious approach to this subject.
8. No Nonsense Documentary - This is not a showboaters documentary. It's not all about the host, or the "investigative journalist" and it's not a bogus bunch of theories tossed at you like its the gospel. It is a straight forward, let the eyewitnesses speak for themselves, approach and yet another solid turn out by the real Fox and friends. All around great piece of work!
9. James has done it again - You can always count on James to deliver thoughtful, high quality documentaries. This is a spectacular case no matter how you look at it. I think it’s the human insights and reactions and feelings that really make it special. Some of these witness’s have been hiding or more years. It makes me think of his last film The Phenomenon. Although very different, the Ariel School segments where you hear and see the witnesses up close really made that movie so special. Moment of Contact is full of such moments. Can’t wait to see what James does next.
10. A story that’s hard to deny at this point. - With so many witnesses sticking to their story, that seem to build on each other’s claims. One can hope the next time an event such as this occurs, nets and violence won’t be all that’s offered by humanity. Perhaps a helping hand with some compassion and empathy to another beings plight.

1. Skip this Movie, Read the Book - I really liked the book so I had high hopes for the movie. But… I decided to stop watching because I couldn’t get past how much this movie is really just a very public therapy session about how he did a lot of messed up things, figured out how messed up they were, got his priorities straight, and then wrote a book about it. The book was much more enjoyable and had a greater impact on me. Skip the movie, read the book.
2. Very Self-Indulgent - I was so curious about this movie, as I have seen the book EVERYWHERE for a while now and yet, twenty minutes in and I realize how self-indulgent this is. Nothing particularly deep here, nothing that expands your mind. The concepts are pretty bland. Mark Manson is engaging, but unfortunately the movie is not.
Release date: 2022-12-13 $19.99
1. Eye opening - This film is without a doubt an excellent, thought provoking look into possibilities that are both plausible and believable.. while the film does not expound a theory or conclusion it presents just the facts as the people in the film believe them to be as well as some astounding hard evidence… I strongly recommend this film!
2. His YouTube channel is just as good - I really looked forward to watching this film, and it didn’t disappoint. We are left pondering with unanswered questions, but that is it seems why Mr. Paulides does his investigations. So many unsolved mysteries. I did appreciate the Canam missing channel on YouTube even more after seeing this movie as well. His episodes on there are well done, and just as intriguing.
3. It’s great to see something based on facts - So often these things are based on emotion or what people want them to be but Dave is an incredible researcher and also as a former detective someone who does not jump to conclusions but lets the facts play out.This is especially meaningful if you’ve kept track of his incredible research as well I was absolutely a critical thinker before this and still am. The facts definitely point to something very odd happening
4. Love it!! - What a great documentary done with truth, heart and love. So much great information. No fluff! So great. Have watched MULTIPLE times. Love it. Dave is doing amazing work and the word NEEDS to spread… something weird is going on and each of his documentaries shows a different overlapping data points (AKA similarities within stories) and each movie is just fantastic. Dave continues to grow and continues to share his research with all of us. Keep it up, Dave!!!
5. Missing the UFO connection - This is an excellent movie. I would highly recommend everybody to watch it whether you believe in UFOs or if you don’t believe in UFOs, this information is good for everybody to know it’s done in extremely good fashion you will need to watch this movie at least three or four times to gather all the data which is truly amazing. The movie is put together well, my family enjoyed watching it over the Christmas holiday. I myself the first day I got it which was when it came out. I watched it three times in one day and then we watched at least three or four times over the Christmas holiday. It was awesome there’s more to this world than will ever know, keep your mind open and watch the movie. Enjoy. thank you Dave thank you angie and God bless Ben he’s over, watching the whole missing COMMUNITY and thank you. My husband got me the hairy men and Giants book for Christmas. Hat with big foot on it I love it I collect hats, and now one of your hats is in my collection. He got me a book last year as well. So now I have four signed copies and one copy that needs to be signed next time. Hopefully you come to Tempe and see us again thanks for all you do dave you’re awesome.
6. So much intriguing information - David has outdone himself with this movie! He’s interviewed some very credible people and definitely tied up some loose ends. His research is deep and thorough, therefore very thought provoking. Still he lets you draw your own conclusions. I’ve watched it times myself. Well done Dave!!
7. Thought provoking as always w/ Paulides - My wife & I have seen this twice. Definitely have to have an open mind & be able to understand that there is SOMETHING beyond that we can see/feel/perceive. Whether higher beings, or something else. The interview w/ Former FBI special agent is worth the price of admission itself. I applaud him & his candor.
8. A Must Watch! - My husband and I have watched this documentary about three times and I feel like a hear something or notice something new every time I watch it. If you think this is a bore, you must like the curtain and are not very open minded. There are things in this world that cannot be explained by our “science”. Thank you Mr. Paulides for including Mr. DeSouza in this documentary, I just wish you could’ve included more of his interview, but I do understand time restraints. We will be buying the DVD from you soon. We truly believe “the truth is out there”.
9. Missing The UFO Connection - The documentary is quite the eye opening experience. It follows suit to the Miss collection that presents the facts, and leaves the door open to have the observer make there own opinion. The testimony of the interviewed is compelling beyond belief. I definitely will be looking forward to Dave’s next project.
10. TRUTH REVEALED - I have followed David Pauline’s for many years since I first heard him on Coast To Coast AM because he is straight shooting truthseeker investigative reporter. After years of revealing facts and information about the missing and never drawing a conclusion, but taking us all on an investigative journey with him, the undeniable truth is revealed in MISSING - THE UFO CONNECTION……..SOME MOVIES YOU NEVER WANT TO END…THIS IS ONE OF THE VERY BEST.

1. Love Charlie - We all knew he was a tyrant, gifted, driven, and passionate. Most of us just didn’t know he got there. This explains it all; before the rise, and after. Best quote was Charlie saying to a chef asking him why he came in early, his response was, “I don’t work for you, I work for me”.

1. You WILL cry - There are only a select number of movies that can get to me. (Side note: most of them have Robin Williams in them) This film GOT ME. The rollercoaster of emotions, the frustration and revelations, the heart and dedication, and of course the camera work. It all comes together in such a heartwarming way. It tells a story of promise and a message to all about harmony and how far we have strayed from it. If you have ever dreamed of feeling soil in your hands and being one with nature then this is for you.
2. The Biggest Little Farm - This is my most favorite movie in years. It is beautifully filmed and it is an amazing story of possibilities. Every minute of this film tugged at every emotion. You can smell the richness in the dirt. This couple and their friends created a spot on earth truly unbelievable. I would love to be a part of this group that created this farm. I can not wait to own this film and I have a list of friends I will be sharing it with. Beautiful!!
3. What the future can look like. - This movie brought me out of a thought rut. As I once asked in economics class of some Buddhist monks who tried sustainable farming what they’re experience was. They had said it was impossible... All the “pests” from surrounding areas came to there non-pesticide farm. Amazing what a little ingenuity and creativity can do in a biodiverse setting. Kudos to this couple and the beautiful people helping to create a possible and positive healthy future!
4. Inspiring, Relevant and Enlightening - This movie presents the “why” behind so many principals that we all fight against in our world today in such a positive and entertaining way. Their story shows the value of viewing trials as opportunities, it reinforces that all living things have purpose and demonstrates the incredible power of a dream when combined with a promise. It’s honestly one of the best films I’ve ever seen and I’m genuinely grateful to those who shared this with the world. I would recommend it to anyone regardless of their background or interest in farming & agriculture. It’s genuine... and what it stands for stays with you.

1. Same old, same old with a lot more “junk” - Disappointed considering the preview. I was hoping for more of their physical/stunt scenes, but it’s really just a lot of the same old stuff with everyone’s junk on screen by about a % increased amount. A little disappointed, but I guess at their age, anything other than a joke about their unit(s) is a wheelchair or coma.
2. Best that it can be! - This movie made the most of what it had to work with. Do not hate because of any expectations; as a matter of fact, watch this without any expectations. This movie is amazing and I truly can say I have the entire collection, even the lost tapes. Despite my entire collection, I have laughed harder with this movie than anything previous! This movie is a “critical darling”.
3. Great movie - I love the new cast members ( Rachel Wolfson, Eric manaka, poopies, jasper dolph, and Zach Holmes). Also, the og cast members ( Johnny Knoxville, steveo, weeman, Dave England, Ehren mcghehey, and Preston lacy. R.I.P Ryan Dunn. And bam margera with his meltdown. My favorite stunt in the movie was the part when Knoxville was dressed up as Irving zisman at the furniture store. And the intro of the movie was so FUNNY!!!!

1. - For the troops - Thanks to politicians & generals, the US has not won a war since WWII. This movie shows why - I am a Marine VN vet (Ret) and tho we lost in that war (again!), there is this: we didn't coddle village elders who knew exactly what was going on with our enemy. Enemy stongholds, i.e., villages were destroyed to give no safe haven to enemy. So, let's comtinue to mount hugely expensive wars & ops, depriving life & limb, only to disbandon the effort a few months later! Yup, tried our damnist to win hearts & minds in VN but when it didn't work, well.... The most significantly idiotic statement in this doc was something to effect of: How can we go fight in an area we are unfamiliar with.........
2. Must Watch for Combat Arms - I saw a lot of reviews saying that everything done here was pointless but as I’m watching this, I see what they’re trying to achieve. It’s definitely a must watch for anyone who just joined a combat arms job or is thinking about joining. It doesn’t romanticize war, it shows the reality of what war is like. I will recommend this to anyone I meet.
3. Speechless - I’m a film fanatic. I’ve seen pretty much every picture at one time or another. There’s never been a documentary or feature that impacted me to this degree. Not even close. It felt like someone physically punched my in the gut. To characterize what Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger accomplished here as simply a movie really doesn’t do it justice. This was an experience. It’s one I will never forget and one that I don’t want to forget. It reinforced my disdain for war while dramatically enhancing the empathy and understanding I have of the soldiers who fight in these horrific conflicts.
4. Belongs in a special category I call “Required Viewing" - When you get into the real belly of the real monster that war is, it should make you wiser. Among my many thoughts were, “if GoPro cameras came into existence years ago, showing us the horror and in some cases, folly, of war, we’d have made much wiser choices about it over the years.” It was just heart breaking to witness these young men enduring all the stress of combat and the heartbreak of seeing some of their brother soldiers die in front of them. (Now we need a documentary that details the outrageous spending required to maintain and further our massive Federal Death Machine.)
5. War Is War And Always Hell - This movie should be required viewing for every American. We need a reminder that when we go to war, or invade/intervene with some military action (perhaps not formally termed "war"), human damage is unavoidable and long lasting. Any number of reasons could be responsible for what I believe is a kinder gentler portrayal of America's wars in the past years. Restrepo breaks the mold. Small things stab deepest: the anguish on a strong soldier's face when he hears news of the ambush, how young they all seem, not knowing what local to trust, the language and cultural barriers, and more. I desperately wanted the three soldiers dancing in their shack to be transported home. "Why aren't they clubbing and raising Hell here like American boys should be doing at their age?" My question is not intended as a political one. It is emotional. War is easier to accept when reported as statistics dying to fight an enemy. The up-close and personal reality - not so much.
6. Great - I can't say anything negative about it, this is a great movie. I recommend it to anyone that has someone special to them in the armed forces. It's touching. It's eye opening. It makes you really appreciate them. I have an army boyfriend whom I love. He's in this video. & I know a little bit more about what he does now.
7. Unappreciated - Too many people now days take everything for granted, no one cared about our soldiers anymore, it's sad.
I think this is a true masterpiece of art that everyone should see, I did cry when sergeant Rugle was killed, because I have too many friends in Afghanistan today, and will one day be there myself, this is by far the best film that can be depicted of this ongoing conflict, hooah to the rd I hope to join y'all some day... God willing.
8. Unbiased and focused on the soldier - It is rare that a military documentary does not have a political slant to it. This does not. It focuses on most important thing in a war. The soldier. We see them as people. The fathers, sons, brothers and friends they are. We see their fear, frustration, boredom, fun and creativity. You must see it.
9. Awesome - This really hits home. I have served over there, and I definitely miss my friends I lost. Hey Vietnam guy, there is a point to this documentary...it's called showing people what people we go through. Yes, Vietnam saw a lot more combat...but who cares? It's still war! And they are only acting like its a "video game" because it's their way of getting through it. So get over yourself and have some respect.
10. Anyone remember our fathers and uncles - I rented this because if the reviews...highly disappointed. It is sad to watch a group of kids treat war like it is a video game. Talk to a vietnam vet who has seen this movie. The amount of action the average man in Vietnam saw compared to these kids...??? No real point to this doco

1. Beautiful and Sad - an angel - This is a beautiful movie about the pain of isolation, a fallen angel, family secrets, and how talent from God becomes a commodity. The greed and deception of those who were loved so much by Whitney Houston and those who loved her in return. None could save her from herself. The saddest story about the most powerful female voice in our time. Her legacy is one of love, laughter , pride and joy in spite of the pain. A fabulous job of telling this woman's life story. I recommend this documentary for everyone who needs to face addiction and abuse.

1. D Movie was... alright - Well first of all, the film was good. But let's be honest it wasn't what most girls/guys were saying on the reviews. It's not PERFECT and it's not as inspirational as I thought it would be. I think they should've touched MORE on their roughest moments and how they overcame it. Also, it just... wasn't very entertaining. I was actually a bit bored, but I suppose there were parts where I was grinning ear to ear. And It was good to watch- but the screaming fans was really making me want to delete the movie. I understand that D is built on their fans but this documentary is about them not the fans, other than those things it was alright. But to me I feel like it wasn't worth my $.. Overall, I give it a THREE stars because it didn't really live up to my expectations which were based off of these reviews.
2. DIRECTIONERS? yep, DIRECTIONERS! - Obviously, I am a directioner, so I am going to write a long review about them. Okay, fist of all that movies was blooming brill!! I loved every single second, it really felt like I was there with them and it wasn't all cheesy. IT WAS ACE! I watched the movie about times and every time I started even loving it more. I highly recommend this, and I bet DIRECTIONERS themselves already bough it, but this movie was pretty, scratch that, IT WAS FREAKING BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!! xx

1. Excellence - Not only is Alex’s feat undeniably incredible, the filmmaking in this documentary is very good, and a marvel in its own right. There were guys climbing the wall simultaneously with Alex, all while shooting this project and managing to not die or cause Alex to die. Impressive. Minimal use of motion graphics- looked great but not overused. The buildup to the climb was very well crafted. Not much negative to say; maybe a couple wobbly shots, seemingly from something like rolling shutter. Chin also heavily employed the “hold the shot on someone after they say something remotely emotional, even if it wasn’t an emotional moment” method, but so does every other documentary on the planet.
2. Watch this NOW - this was one of the best suspense movies that is actually a documentary. it's a must see... you will not be disappointed!! it would be great if there was a film about the backstory: Alex's early family life. it takes an extraordinary person to be so determined AND so successful... would love to know more.
3. Breathtaking photography - Thirty three minutes into this documentary the bickering starts with the girlfriend. He himself remarked she was present both times when he was injured. I think his mistress is the mountain which leaves no room for romance. I am weary of her whining. I stopped at minutes to check reviews thinking it was just me. The only negativity was towards Sanni. National Geographic should have left her out altogether. I’m not sure I want to watch the rest.
4. Offers the complete story of what it takes to free solo. - This a truly well done documentary, with a broad focus on the motivation, inner fortitude, resolve and athleticism required to acheive a climb up El Cap without ropes. I found Alex Honnold to be a deeply interesting and inspirational character, not to mention occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. (!) During the making of this documentary, Alex acquires a girlfriend and the ways in which that affects and complicates the climb makes this more that a one-dimensional adventure story. The photography is astounding, and it's intense to watch the climb, even knowing that he makes it. Highly recommend!
5. Testing Yourself X - For anyone who is fascinated by the psychology of extreme athletes, this is a must see. Quite fascinating to witness the narrow focus it takes to achieve a goal. The driving force behind this climb comes from deep within the climber. It saps away so much energy it creates unbalanced relationships. You see Immense courage, remarkable skill (math/physics style), and his personal resolve. A thrilling movie, but one filled with shots at great heights. The photography is remarkable. The danger of climbing El Capitan is real, and the level of execution is beyond X.
6. Inspiring, engaging and sometimes lacking.... - Fantastic production that showcases an incredible achievement. Hard to walk away not inspired! The chemistry and genuine acknowledgement of the risk/fear between Alex and his fellow climbers/film makers was spot on. A bit too much emphasis on his newfound gf. At least in the film she comes across a bit opportunistic and detached. Take back about minutes of that and replace with more focus on the final climb, his physical fitness/training and history of the activity. Cheers Alex. Well done!
7. Star Wars? - I purchased this movie hoping to gain more insight into the psychology of Han Solo.....but I think it’s actually about his great great grandfather. Who knew he had such amazing mountain climbing lineage and genetics to turn certain portions of his brain off!!! Overall great addition to the Star Wars universe. Wish they would have mixed in a few classic star war lines like “I’ve got a bad feeling about this” or “keep it up fuzzball”.....
8. CRAZY AWESOME STELLAR - As a climber myself, I was looking forward to watching this doc. The film effectively connects the viewer to not only the subject, Alex Honnold, but also the film makers themselves and the stress this climb placed on all of Alex's friends and support. My hands we sweaty as I watch every move from the edge of my seat. Whether you climb or don't, this film reaches transends an unbelivable atheltic accomplishment of epic percission. It's uncomparable.
9. Best documentary I have ever seen - Not only is it amazing to watch what Alex can do, but to learn about him, his lifestyle, his methodical planning of what he does is a real treat. So inspiring, and so nerve wracking!! I’ve seen it twice, once in IMAX and my hands swear each time. Way to go Alex!!
10. Plays like a big budget movie, but it’s real! - This is an incredible work of film making and it is a travesty it was not nominated for best picture in addition to winning best documentary at the Oscars this year. This plays like a normal film but it’s all real, which makes it that much better. You dive into the life of someone who does one of the most dangerous things for a living, climbing without a rope. You see how that effects him and those around him in a film that follows an emotional and exhilarating narrative. This is the film to kill the stigma against documentaries.

1. A Heartwarming Chronicle of Hockey/Life in Northern Minnesota - Tommy Haines’ documentary of northern Minnesota hockey team - one a powerhouse, the other trying to recapture past glory - provides some great action on the ice and in the locker room, but the emotional heart of the movie is off the ice showing the intersection of high school life, families, and the communities that support them.

1. Great Documentary! - If you just know one JJ song, this documentary is worth a rental. I have always admired Joan, but this dig deep into what it took to become Joan Jett on all levels. I was particularly impressed that they didn’t dive into her sexual orientation; what a relief! Really-who cares!? Joan is an amazing artist and human being. Enjoy!
2. This Rocks! - Bravo to Joan Jett. Women have a right to follow their dreams or ambitions, whatever they may be, and she made that perfectly clear. It is inspiring and especially needed in these times as it was decades ago. Thank you Joan Jett and also thank you to Kenny Laguna and the rest of the Blackheart musicians and staff.
3. Inspiring and Exciting Must See! - This is a must see documentary about what fighting for change is all about. The struggles and success makes you always pull for the underdog. Someone being told they aren't good enough only to prove everybody wrong, is the best outcome in life. A strong woman and and inspiration to all. Super talented and a beautiful person!!! I loved it so much!

1. Nice portraits of the human-animal bond - I caught 'Cat Daddies' last night at a showing in Columbus, OH and really enjoyed it! It's a pretty straightforward premise: the doc features or so men and their pet cats and shows how their human-animal bond enhances the life of each "cat daddy". I kept expecting it to morph into a lecture on masculinity and the history of the femeninization of cat ownership (which I actually would have dug ) but it didn't -- probably to its benefit. The issues of gender, the effects of global warming, the state of American healthcare, Covid, homelessness, race, poverty, social media, etc are all present and important parts of these men's lives -- but they are woven through the film in a skillfully apolitical way. By steering clear of a social "deep dive", 'Cat Daddies' allows the focus to stay on the individual, emotional bonds between men and their cats, and -- like pet ownership itself -- remains something (most) everyone will enjoy.

1. Believe in yourself and you can achieve anything - Worth the time to see this man in a light that you don’t always get to see. The inspiring story of a man who always believed in himself and surrounded himself with people that believed in him as well. Through hard work and discipline, he was able to accomplish his goals of first, one day competing in the UFC, next capturing the featherweight title, then the lightweight title as well. A lot of time spent on the journey to the fight with Jose Aldo and not enough time on the rest of his story, but still in awe of the story presented to me.
2. Very good documentary - As always, it seems that if Rotten Tomatoes hates a movie, I’ll like it. And not sure what the only other reviewer’s talking about, but know if you’ve gotta trash talk on one’s heritage (ie, leprechaun, etc), then probably not very objective. If you like MMA, & esp Conor McGregor, then you’ll like this inside story. I’m both, plus Irish , so I definitely enjoyed it. I won’t say it’s “perfect,” but it’s very entertaining & definitely worth the purchase or rental.

1. Hindsight Always /, Time For NY To Settle - Ken Burns' film doesn't attempt to examine the nuances, minutiae, or even important details of the the case as it was understood in the late 's or how it came to be understood in the st Century; that's been done already. This movie is about the personal narratives of teens who were cajoled and prodded with the time honored 'Good Cop/Bad Cop', 'Snitch or be Snitched' interrogation techniques. TCP's noble purpose is its appeal to NY City: Settle The Lawsuit brought by these who were wronged by a prosecution based on denial of the implausibility of -transference of evidence between the victim and defendants. One Last Detail: Trisha Meili never made any accusations against the young Men persecuted for the brutalization she suffered. Not at their trial and not even in her book. The Central Park Jogger has always focused on recovery, forgiveness, and moving forward.
2. One of the best documentaries EVER! - I lived in NYC at the time of this crime and can attest to the fear and racism that permeated the city at this time. This documentary captures not only the tragedy of a fatally flawed justice system but also the incendiary nature of the race baiting of politicians, police and media. You can't come away from this documentary without a heart broken for the five young men and their families. The fact that the city has not changed its position towards these young men is criminal. They were exonerated and yet the city refuses to settle the wrongful imprisonment suit. Disgusting!
3. The Central Park Five - This event happened in . Five colored children were falsely accused in New York. No physical evidence linked them to the crime. The media was horrified and focused racist columns on them from the beginning because the children had been held too long by police and confessed. No one cared about the children and their families. Not many willing to take responsibility after all when the real killer's DNA matched. Reminds people to disbelieve media and not watch and automatically believe.

1. As close to the real climb as you'll ever get - This was a very interesting documentary. Very we'll made. It really gave a deep sense of the long and arduous struggle it was to take Everest for the first time. Really great imagery and effects give a strong sense that you are there struggling alongside the original team - not knowing if what you're trying to do is really even possible. For those who fantasize about the extraordinary adventure you'll probably never really take, this is as good as it gets.

1. Fantastic documentary begging to be made into a Hollywood film - What do you get when a former Gambino family protege teams up with a Miami fixer and Cuban smuggler? All set in Miami as the Cold War fizzles out to and Soviet Union crumbles to pieces.....A story better than a sky blockbuster. Stayed hooked during the whole film. Well done.

1. Superb Documentary - By far the best UFO phenomenon documentary produced to date. I’ve always been interested in this subject, but since the validation of the FLIR videos, my interest has increased dramatically. This film pushed my interest in overdrive! A ton of information packed in this film. Requires multiple views but each time it gets better and better! Bravo, James Fox.

1. Inspiring story - A neglected musician is miraculously idolized in South Africa. It is a tale of redemption. The most touching aspect is the integrity and simplicity of Rodriguez who apparently does not let fame go to his head. The mother of the daughters does not appear, leading one suspect that he might not have a saint. But his daughters do seem to adore him. This is a very well made and affecting movie.
2. Astounding - Astounding that this incredible musician and man who changed a nation is not known to us here in America. Less astounding is that music industry executives stole the royalties from his work for years with no shame. Yet, in the end, this man who is so extraordinary has a story that truly makes you believe in the days of wonder and miracles. It also makes you aware that things we do every day can be affecting people around the world we will never know. This man and his music started a movement that changed a country and a world. Everywhere I go I hear his music…..Mexico, Europe, Africa, Central America, Australia……..but still, not in the USA. It is a story to learn and carry with you.
3. Cause - Mr. Rodriguez a truly inspiration to everyone out there with a dream! What a humble attitude a real genius, a hero for everyone pursuing a dream. Believed in your self. What a lovely true history and miracle !!
A perfect example to all you out there with last names Gonzalez or Morales :) to never give up your most precious life dreams. Excellent !!!!!!!
4. Sugar Man is a Perfect Film - I was hooked-in every moment of this film. It unfolds perfectly and the ending is % satisfying. (The other % I wanted to see footage of discovering who really pocketed all that money … but I guess we can infer Clarence Avante and Sussex records screwed Rodriguez over big time.) I want to buy his albums just to support the guy; his music sounds a bit dated now, but in context you can hear that he is an amazing writer. I guess America was going to have only one "Bod Dylan" at the time. Yes, I want to buy his music … but I want to make sure he gets paid now!
5. Profound and moving story!! by Laura Dodd - This story has been a long awaited tale of how sometimes even a Superstar gets overlooked! I thoroughly enjoyed this movie! It is inspiring,motivating,and thought provoking of how one man’s heartaches can help so many people just by the sound of his voice and songs. Definitely, not a movie to miss!!
6. A pretty good movie... - …but film makers are really getting desperate for subject matter. There are millions of musicians nobody has heard of that we could frame up and make it look important. If there were real artists alive today like Cobain, Dylan, Lennon we wouldn’t need to dig around desperately to make a movie about someone great. Also I don’t like the obsession with acting like people didn’t make money. Obviously he would have made money on the six sold out concerts he did, and this movie of course. There’s nothing wrong with money. It’s so cliche to try to frame every artist as a victim who lost all their money to industry. Minus one star for that contrived crap.
7. WOW !!!! - Great work ! Growing up and coming of age in that same nieghborhood (southwest Detroit), and not knowing the man but probably drinking at the same bar or stripclub while in my own little world. I missed a great opportunity at a young age to expand my mind. I guess its never too late. Love your music Sixto
8. Wow - what an AMAZING story and movie. - Love love love this movie - might be my favorite documentary of all time. I am especially glad that even though I thought I knew what the movie was about it was actually a really wonderful surprise.I'm so glad someone went searching for searching for Sugar Man because now a whole new generation can appreciate this amazing man and his music.
9. "Searching for Sugar Man" in MI - What an amazing true story! Sixto is a fantastic musician and now he may get recognize that he so much deserves. He's just amazing person that be so great with music and live an ordinary life, definitely not of material things. God bless him and all that brought this great story to life. Now if only all his music he has ever written can be recorded here in United States, that would be another gift to us. Thank you for sharing this wonderful story.
10. A perfect example of life is stranger than fiction - I saw the interview on Minutes and was intrigued so I bought a few songs from his first two albums and was amazed with the lyrics. People compare him to Dylan and the comparison is reasonable with the exception that Rodríguez can actually play the guitar in addition to writing meaningful lyrics.
I rented the movie a few days before the Academy Awards and watched it. It is an amazing story about an amazing individual and his devoted fans in South Africa. Rodríguez is one of the most humble, intelligent, and soft spoken musicians I have followed. He is a breath of fresh air in the over-produced, over hyped flash-in-the-pan sensations of the constantly connected world.
The movie was a struggle for director/producer Malik Bendjelloul. He was on the edge of destitution by the time it was finished. His perseverance and a little luck saved the film and both he, his film and the subject all got the recognition they deserved.
11. South Africa: Hero...America: zero, zero no more!!! - Justin Beiber, you think you got something special?? You could learn a thing or two from this brilliant and humble man. After a well deserved rediscovery and fame, he still lives in the same house and giving his money away to family and friends. One word that is almost as forgotten as he was... GRACE. He doen't seem to be bitter about anything that happened to him.
And, what about the director? Malik dejalloul? He almost became just as poor as Rodriguez trying to finish the documentary. I want to know his story as well...
FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY!!!!!

1. Very Good Movie about Tony - Impressed with the movie. Much better than I expected. I purchased the movie as a respoect to my favourite storyteller Tony whose movies I had watched for years. This movie shows very well his life, mostly through the eyes of his friends and family. Tony was great! I miss him. His daughter can (and I am sure - will) be proud with her dad. Kudos to the team that made this excellent documentary movie about Tony!
2. A Worthy purchase - I don’t get too emotional about celebrity deaths this one resonates something within . Beloved bohemian artist author of many things so profound simple at times humorous and depth of human kindness that touched so many. A mile in his shoes is to circle the world and back again . A fallible human who gave so much of himself before he left . ”The least I can do is see the world with open eyes” Anthony Bourdain
3. Really Great...But Sad - How does a person that has everything in life, Loved by millions, Possessing Millions of Dollars, and famous for food which we all love, commit suicide?? You'll wonder the same thing after watching this movie. I left the Theatre thinking this is a self absorbed individual who was either unwilling or unable to tame his inner demons. It appears he tried to find happiness outside himself, instead of looking internally.

1. Amazing Concert - I am from New York. I had heard about this concert but did not know how real it was. At the time I thought someone must have been mistaken. I was so wrong. Many years later I had the good fortune to see this. All I can say is that thank God someone held on to the recordings. Seeing the musicians interviewed so many years later and seeing their original performances as they occurred was mind blowing. I loved how the politics of the day were interwoven into the video. Thank you to all involved who were able to bring this (finally) for us to see. It brought tears to my eyes.

1. The Documentary That Was Bigger Than The Artist - When released, The Last Waltz set the standard for concert/documentary films. For some, like myself, prior to their farewell performances captured in this film, The Band was not really on the radar screen, aside from a few classics like "Up On Cripple Creek." This movie changed that, and made many of us realize that we'd discovered them too late. Thankfully, this performance, with plenty of guest artists, documented The Band at their best.

1. MJ ‘s Genius Enshrined. - Regardless what you think about the MJ contraversies, there is no doubt that he was history’s greatest pop star. He performed for five decades, and this film shows his preparation for what would have been a final tour. So while this is not an all out performance, seeing MJ in rehearsal in some ways is more impressive. He knew what he wanted his show to be, and worked with his fellow performers with kindness. There are just enough performance moments to keep you entranced, but this is an MJ on % because he is rehearsing and trying to save his voice. But an MJ on % is better than just about any other performer that ever lived.
2. Was one of the first to see this movie! - I saw this the very day it came out on its earliest available showing possible, and OMG... it's like, oh thank God, it was all just a bad dream, & there's my bro Michael alive and well and still at it... I cried at the end wishing it never had to end. Love you forever, Michael! ;D
3. This is it EASILY ONE OF MY FAVORITES - This movie is awesome truly heart breaking that he's gone but the world will truly see him for what he an entertainer! is Love you Michael Jackson!!! Honestly still to this day I have the wii game Michael Jackson the experience and sometimes I still play it lol
But anyways I loved this movie and I wish I wasn’t so young when he died because I would have loved to see him live Rip Michael
4. A once in a generation talent - Michael was a perfectionist and he never would have allowed this behind the scenes documentary of his rehearsal process to be released. But oh are we the better for that happening. This Is It is a fascinating look behind the scenes into how a Michael Jackson concert was sculpted. Michael’s incredible talent is on display throughout the film. If we didn’t know it before we certainly know after watching This Is It, Michael Jackson was a true artist, a musical genius, a perfectionist, and at the same time so vulnerable and so human. We are all blessed to have been alive during his most productive years. Whatever you think about Michael Jackson as a person, there’s no denying he was a once-in-a-generation talent. Miss you MJ. You played such a huge role in my life in the s. Thriller changed everything for me. It expanded my understanding of what music could be. And the music video, and the making of the music video, expanded my understanding of filmmaking. Rest in peace. You will be remembered for your musical genius, up there with the greatest of all time, like Elvis and the Beatles; and as a man with an unparalleled understanding of music... the late th century’s Mozart.
5. It really was it - This documentary was so good had me crying...really shows how Michael REALLY was..! ....I miss you so much my baby you brought peace and love to this earth that's all you wanted to do with your music. So gentle and so kind "somebody once said it's the soul that matters" I love you -FOREVER painful years without my Michael Joseph Jackson the world isn't the same & we miss you so much. I know you are making the angels sing up there. You did your deed on earth && God said "now it's time to return back to me..." I would have done absolutely anything to go back in time && meet you but you're finally at peace now my love who knew this would really be it....Conrad will pay for what he's done..but I forgive him God taught me to forgive so I will...just can't forget MJJ
6. Absolutely Amazing! - This is it!This movie is awesome.This Tour would been amazing to.If he was going to make this his last tour then his last tour would have said goodbye to MJ tours in a great way.Wish he could have saw it.Michael Jackson honestly could have stopped at thriller and would have been the king of pop but he kept working.I love you Michael
7. Genius at Work. - I have never written a review for lack of desire to. However, as a professional dancer and artist I have to say he has influenced me greatly both in work ethic and pushing myself to do better. In this film you see the true genius behind the man. You see him working one on one with aspiring artists, and working on every detail (as was his reputation). You see how he changes/inforces the simplest things that make an instantanious difference in the sound or gravity of the music. He knew his music inside an out, and wanted it to be the best that it could be. All the while keeping a harmonious and loving atmosphere. He is one of my idols as far as artists go, and seeing this film only confirmed that fact. If you are interested in seeing the creative and working process of Michael than this is the movie for you. I can't help think if he hadn't died what that world of popular music would look like today. He, unlike so many artist today could do it all...LIVE. (Even at ) "It's all for love." RIP MJ
8. RIP King Of Pop - This Is It. Michael Jackson is the one and only king of pop and this movie shows us what the real Michael Jackson was like and what he did to bring the thrill to his fans I just wish he was able to do at least one show so that we the fans could see what the show in full production would have been like but God needed Michael for a reason and we all know that Michael is looking down at us and watching us live his legacy. Once again I say Rest In Peace Michael Jackson. We miss you and we Love You
9. Brilliant! Spectacular! Out of this world! - MJ was definitely one of the best performers of our time and now that he is gone, we'll mourn for a long time. Thankfully we have this brilliant video to show us what he was doing for a comeback. Great movie, great singer, great order. May his spirit live on.
10. This is it. - I am getting so SICK of people crappin' on mj. What's your problem. Even if he was even SLIGHTLY screwed up, do you know how crapy his child hood was? If you had a child hood like that, you might be a little wired too!! I don't believe I'm all that magazineCRAP!! And you shouldn't either!! So why you do, is a total mystery to me. Maybe we should start making up crap about you. " hey so and so did this and this." can you please just keep your poo to your self? I'd like that. Oh... Also, I LOVE this movie!! It's amazing.

1. Unwatchable - Look, Ruth Bader Ginsburg obviously bucked many norms from her day. She undoubtedly had a mind that was far more brilliant than any of us making comments on this movie. However, that doesn’t mean this movie is any good. This movie is sycophantic tripe. The USSR couldn’t have made a better propaganda piece. Although I disagree with many of her views, she still deserved an objective telling of her story because that would’ve been far more compelling and impressive than this production from the Ministry of Truth. The only thing worse than some of RBG’s legal opinions are the mouth-breathing sycophants who deify her without having ever read RBG’s written legal opinions. I disagree with her, but she deserved better than this terrible production.
2. A person who put personal agenda above the responsibilities bestowed upon them - She was a powerful impact on the equality of women in the US, & should be remembered for that. But because she didn’t relieve herself of her charge when unable to execute her office- because of political reasons, demonstrates the true character of the person, & compromising the Supreme Court & eroding the checks & balances of the US government. Shame on her. She is not a hero, not an icon, just another brand for individuals who don’t believe in the Bill of Rights for everyone (but only for those who have confirmation bias). The film was well made, no surprise there. But is a work of fiction. Lies of omission are still lies.
3. Garbage - Don’t listen to the positive reviews they are just from lib-socialist commies hell bent on destroying moral decency in the country. Movie was a political work of fiction of revisionist history. The brainwashed love this joke of a bio pic focusing on the history of now. Now bow to your government overlords... they know what is best for you.
4. Another love story - Everybody wants to act like she was something special this film is a puff peace the real story is why didn’t she retire under ohbamas watch she knew she had very bad cancer how effective can you be when your that sick, she had a amazing story to sure. If your a RGB fan then sure you might enjoy this.
5. Amazing woman - Championed as a hero for expanding the ability of women everywhere to end the life of their unborn children and furthering the work of those in power to continue to descend into a national immorality both ethically and sexually. Her death , removing her decision making from the public sphere, is easily one of the best things to happen to this country in a long time.
6. A disgusting piece of propaganda... - Yes, it's become typical of the media to celebrate people who should be in jail, and no exception here. This perspon lobbied for the legal age of consent to be twelve years old and championed abortion. Truly a horrific individual who did not deserve to be worshipped.
7. Well done! - From this wonderful film I learned so much more about a woman who worked so hard to improve all our lives and to help our country try to become "a more perfect union". I think we are all blessed (I know I am) that she cared so much, worked so hard, and loved this country so much. So thankful for her life!
8. Excellent - Very well done. I wasn’t aware of her incredible impact on women’s rights earlier in her career. She’s a legend. Anyone saying it’s propaganda is either completely biased or living in an alternate universe. Her accomplishments are impressive regardless of your political persuasion.
9. RBG - I’d be willing to bet that most of the negative reviewers of this amazing documentary didn’t even have the courage to actually watch it. RBG is an incredibly brave and persistent fighter for equal rights and her history and her effect on our history is an incredible story. Powerful and inspiring!

1. Amazing. - Watching this was life changing for me. Well made, great story and it teaches you a lot.
You definitely learn that there are not such things as “impossibles.” With this film I learn that’s just a word that the one that is not willing to try or did not tried hard enough uses to justify him not being able to achieve what he wanted. I think Marc is a name that is synonymous to: “possible.”
2. Adrenaline and emotion packed film… - Free Solo was an awesome documentary, but for me watching it not as terrifying as viewing this movie The Alpinist. Seeing Marc-Andre hang on sheer cliffs with only ice axes had me falling out of my chair. Add to that the emotional ups and downs of his life story. Very heart-felt!

1. Very moving and inspiring! - I watched this with my mom, who had no prior knowledge of Iris, and her first comment was that she hated the glasses. Her second comment was that she thought Iris was a hoarder. I definitely took offense to the comment about the glasses, and realized there was probably some truth to the hoarder comment. Either way, the thing I take from the movie is that we may not have all the money for society to let us be considered an eccentric, vs someone who needs fixing, but we can claim that space for ourselves. Living an authentic, passionate life and having a calling that can get you out of bed every morning are the fountains of youth and vitality. Wonderful portrait of an inspiring woman!
2. Very Disappointed - Interesting but in the end ,she realizes that her health and her husband's can't buy them life; all the things they accumulated was that of little value in the end. It cost thousands of dollars to store her treasures and now she is having to part with it. Made me think of King Salmon ; Everything is vanity in the end. Truly sad in the end.
3. Jameel - As a geriatrician who often times has to deal with the hardships of my patients getting older, this movie serves much more of a purpose than just to glorify one amazing confident lady. While it is true that if she were poor, then she would be considered a hoarder and those closest to her would encourage her to relinquish her collection, move to assisted living or long term care, and live out her remaining days in a mundane routine with others. These would all be things that would kill her spirit. I do not believe she has any sort of cognitive impairment, but the point I am trying to make is while we funnel billions of dollars in Alzheimer’s research for the “cure,” I find it much more enlightening, that if we focused our efforts on allowing our older folks to maintain individuality and creativity (of course in a safe manner), then there would be less ageism and more monies allocated appropriately to supportive care rather than curative care.
4. Hoarders for the rich and stylish - Iris Apfel is lovable but this movie skips along a rather dull surface and seems like a PR reel more than anything else. If Iris were poor it would be an episode of Hoarders. But she is a rich NYer, so instead, she gets a show at the Met. We never find out why Iris is depressed, what drives her OCD or more about her relationship. Cotton candy for publicists/stylists who live in Manhattan.
5. Inspired - Amazing, inspiring, delightful! There is nothing quite like Iris Apfel. This movie feels almost voyeuristic at times as the camera follows Iris through scenes of everyday life. Much of the film is spent in close camera shots which allow the audience to understand the subtext of the very intimate relationship between Iris and her husband Carl. Watching her place costume jewelry on manikins provides tremendous insight into what makes her sense of style so unique. It's hard to resist falling in love with Iris Apfel after watching this movie.

1. Excellent Film - Probably the most human story ever told on film about this subject. It sheds new light on this amazing story but also asks us why we refuse to accept this phenomenon as possible. Well told without any sensational music, sharp cuts or cartoonish clips. The story unravels through the eyes and words of the kids and adults and their experiences on how this affected their lives. Truly compelling. Should be watched by believers and skeptics alike. Bravo!
2. Won't Forget This One Anytime Soon - Haunting, emotional, yet soothing. Our society treats those who have inexplicable experiences so cruelly. This is a gorgeous, moving testament to that, and a story of hope and of the kind of wondering that any human who is paying attention does regularly. This one is really going to stick with me!
