4 Horsemen

Havent watched this one yet, just seen it posted on one of the documentary channels Im subscribed to...

Synopsis : Have you ever wondered why we haven't returned to the moon again? The truth is that NASA is hiding a very dark secret from us.
Is there an "Alien Base" on the Moon? More and more people are coming forward with stories that might prove this is true. Rumors say that there is an Alien Moon Base on the far side of the moon, the side we never see from Earth.

    Deliver us From Evil

    Documentary about the catholic church and a priest who was accused of molestation several times, but was never put in jail and the church instead moved him around to different cities where the accusations would continue.

    Capturing the Friedmans

    Documentary about a family who was accused of molesting kids in their home while they ran a computer lab in the early 80's. Starts off making you think they were wrongfully accused, but then about halfway through a bomb is dropped that makes you not think that.

    Botany of Desire

    Documentary about 4 plants that are desired by humans and the role they have played throughout history. Tulips, Apples, Marijuana, and something else i dont remember.

    Food Inc.

    Documentary about the food industry.

    Super High Me

    Comedian Doug Benson quits smoking weed for 30 days, takes a physical/different health tests, then smokes marijuana heavily for the next 30 days and retakes the tests. Some results might shock you. Pretty funny.

    Art of Rap

    Ice T doing a documentary about hip hop culture. Interviews a lot of great Emcees.

    Documentary called "The Real Rocky" about the boxer who inspired rocky apparently. Only watched a little bit late last night but it was cool. Some white dude who damn near went 15 rounds with Ali. Cant remember his name for the life of me.

    Real Superheroes - This is a documentary about people who are pretty much copying "Kick Ass" They dress up in suits, have code names, and go look for crime in the streets. A lot of people form teams. A lot more "heroes" than i'd have thought.

    Yall need to watch this on Netflix. 🤬 Mind blowing.


    About a amatuer bike racer who wants to start trying to use steroids after Lance Armstrong got busted and see how he does compared to his previous races.

    He asks docs to help him dose and come up with a program so that he wont test positive, and he eventually gets suggested to contact a russian Scientist. He meets with the scientist via skype who begins helping him form a program for dosing steroids and a exercise regimen. This Scientist was involved with the Russian olympics team for years.

    Time goes on, Russian Scientist ends up getting involved in the biggest reveal in sporting history, then the director has to help him fight the case.

    I dont want to give too much info on it, but i promise you it is a much watch. 🤬 amazing.

    I highly recommend hypernormalisation. The man who made it has access to all the BBC archives and he basically explains how the world has reached the stage it is in.
