Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , on December 5, 2018 by getbent57

They_Shall_Not_Grow_OldThere is a very interesting documentary I want to see, They Shall Not Grow Old.  This documentary is about what it was like to be a soldier during World War One, the Great War.  It was directed by Peter Jackson.  They use real footage and audio from 100 years ago and restored/colorized it.  You can see the trailer > here or below.  The film was all ready shown in the UK.  Have read it will be in select theaters on December 17 and 27.  Not sure if will be be were I live.  Will have to keep and eye out when it comes to disc.  May be even Netflix will have it.  That would be nice.

The_Oral_History_Of_Image_ComicsA few post back talked about AMC’s documentary series, Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics.  Have watched the first three episodes of that and it’s really good.   Have discovered another new comic book related documentary.  Which is called The Oral History of Image Comics.  It was made by the people of the website SYFY Wire.com.  Have never heard about this site until I see a link to the doc on FaceBook.  Have not watched this five part series yet.  Plan to soon.  Know a little bit about Image Comics.  It was created by big named artists to allow them to keep control over the own works.  Think they are most famous for Spawn and The Walking Dead.  You can watch the documentary series > here.

A LEGO Brickumentary Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , on August 8, 2015 by getbent57

A_LEGO_BrickumentaryHad to check out the documentary, A LEGO Brickumentary after seeing it reviewed on EP Daily.   Everyone knows LEGO is awesome and more than likely have some or did.  This documentary covers a lot of ground in the huge world that revolves around LEGO.  They start with some history which is really interesting.  Take a look inside the company.  They the rest which is the best parts.  Are talking to people who use it for so many different applications.   There are people who use it for art or architecture.  Others for therapy or fun.  Pretty much everything has a convention.  Turns out there are many just about LEGO.  It is amazing to see what people can make.

Have to say this is a really good documentary.  Like all good ones they only have some much time.  Would like to seen more.  One other thing I would like them to talked about would have been the video games.  Understand why they don’t.  It is the story of the toy itself.  Do recommended watching this documentary.  It is for anyone and everyone.  You can check out the trailer  > here if you are interested.

But > here is the link and its all so below.

I Am Sturgis: The Movie

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2015 by getbent57

I_Am_Sturgis_The_MovieThe people behind the awesome motorcycle documentary, Why We Ride are back with a new project in the works.  The new project is called I Am Sturgis.  2015 marks the 75th anniversary the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.   Think this is the biggest and most famous motorcycle rally.  So the film makers will be there.  They will be making the documentary in the same vain as Why We Ride.  But just at Sturgis.  Which will be great to watch.  Just like their last one you can help out by their Kick Starter Page > here.  Think it is a very cool idea.  It is set to come out next summer.  Hope they get all the funding because I would like to see it.  If you haven’t seen Why We Ride it is well worth you time checking out.  The best motorcycle documentary I have ever seen.

On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2015 by getbent57

OnAnySundayTheNextChapter.jpgHave been waiting a very long time to watch On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter.  First was going to buy in off of Amazon.ca.  That had a listing it would be out February 10, 2015.  Went to order it on the tenth but the site said, “it would ship within 2 to 5 weeks”.   Later found a different listing saying it would be out March 3, 2015.  So on the third tried to order it and the same thing was there.  This pissed me off.  Ended up renting it off of the Google Play Store.’

Am glad I only rented this because it was a big let down.  It wasn’t very entertaining or interesting.  There is some good bits in there but that’s it.  They do some nods to the first documentary.  How ever they felt out of place.  Think the problem with this documentary is they tried to cram to much in and not letting some of the segments to be flushed out.  If you like motorcycles it worth checking out but not to own.  There is a much better documentary that is newish called Why We Ride.  Which is so much better.

OnAnySundayTheNextChapter.jpgWas planning on order myself a copy of On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter.  It was set to be out on Blu-ray February 10, 2015.  How ever when I went on to Amazon.ca on the tenth to order it wasn’t available.  Saying it would ship within 2 to 5 weeks.  Which kind of pissed me of.  Have been looking forward to seeing this motorcycle documentary ever since I first read about in back in October.  If you never heard of it.  It is a sequel to the very famous 1971 documentary On Any Sunday.  Which is pretty good.  Well worth checking out.  You can find on YouTube.  You can check out the trailer > here or below.

[Update] Found another listing on Amazon.  Saying it will be out on March 3, 2015.  Will check back to see if its true.

OnAnySundayTheNextChapterA few years back got to see the 1971 motorcycle documentary On Any Sunday.  While it was old and date it was still very good and entertaining.  There is a sequel coming out on November 7, 2014.  It is called On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter.  It is was made by the same family that made the first and along with Red Bull Media House.  The people at Red Bull are great at making spots videos so this documentary will look awesome.  Am sure it wouldn’t be long before it will be on VOD and on Blu-ray.  When it does plan on getting myself a copy.  You can check out the trailer > here or below.

Superheroes: A Never Ending Battle Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 12, 2014 by getbent57

SuperheroesANeverEndingBattleGot to check out the PBS’s three part documentary called Superheroes: A Never Ending Battle.  Am a fan of comic books (even if I only have a few) and there history.  This documentary covers the very beginning of how comic books came to, to their fall and right up to now a days with the blockbusters movies.  The doc is broken into to three time lines.  Part one starts from the very beginning in 1938 to 1958.  To were they are formed right up to the government regulation comes into play.  Part spans 1959 to 1977.  This one covers the space race, atomic age as well as the pop culture world that draws influence of of each other.  Part thee covers 1978 to now.  This one shows how the comic book world has become more adult and mainstream.  Talks about how big superhero movies, TV shows and video games are.  This part all so talks about how comics books have become digital.

This is one of the best well made documentaries I have ever seen.  The subject matter makes it even better.  You don’t even have to ever read a comic books to enjoy this.  Even if you ever seen a superhero movie or TV show (I am sure every one has) you would enjoy this just as much.  On a side note there is all so a companion book.  Which is called Superheroes!: Capes, Cowls and the Creation of Comic Book Culture.  This one will be added to my wish list.
