    Not a doc... but a 4 part series by BBC House of Saddam. Was really really good, a great story of the iraq's history/war.

    watched "comic con: episode IV - a fan's hope"...... pretty good, despite kevin smith being there... showed the "human" side of geeks, like the budding comic book artists, and the outcast girl who just wants to make great cosplay shit.

    That dork with the azn girl is out of his mind to marry that clingy wierdo. That girl wouldnt even let the dude take a piss without following him. He is going to be owned for the rest of his life, what a sad couple.

    Century of the Self (you tube)....not really a documentary and some commie undertones but interesting nevertheless.

    I watched "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" the other day. I don't know if I would call it "must see" but it was definitely fascinating.

    Watched the first 3 parts of "Auschwitz: Inside The Nazi State" last night. It is really well done, just very difficult to watch. I'll finish it up tonight.

    I'm with you on that one. Being native of Detroit, it was awesome. Being a lover of music documentaries, it was even better.

    ya'll got to see this one!!

    When you say beyond belief I hope you mean it disgusted you. I hope Denmark allows for his extradition.

    ^ What did he did with the gold? Did he kept the profits? I was disgusted about the corruption that goes on around the world though. Coming from Singapore, one of the cleanest countries.

    On a side note, he was impeccably well dressed. Loved his safari wear. Suit with those leather boots.


    Just finished watching The Art Of Rap. Recommend any self appreciating hip hop fan to watch it. Shows you the mind of the greatest rappers from the 80s to these days.

    Snoop Dogg is surprising intellectual. Thought he was just a crack head. He actually made some sense.

    ^^Spoilers in response

    He didn't leave the country with diamonds or gold but he did pour thousands of euros and francs into the hands of the very people he was trying to expose. The only way he could get his footage was to legitimately become one of the bad guys and he justified it throughout the movie by saying that there are people doing much worse. The guy is a dirtbag if you ask me.

    ^^ I believe you guys are missing the point completely. He did the same as any undercover police officer would do to try and expose a crime.

    He was playing it up, come on guys. Does anyone seriously believe he enriched himself or intended to? The guy is a journalist. He was risking his life every day exposing this.

    Just watched Werner Herzog's Happy People: A Year in the Taiga.

    A community of people in Siberia, mainly focussing on the Sable trappers.

    An unusually mild temperature of -33C on 31st December!
