I've seen both and while I enjoyed Nightmares in Red, White and Blue, Inside Deep Throat is the obvious winner here. lol

Whatever it was that happened, I hope the person, or persons, that murdered those boys rot in hell.

This part we both completely agree on.  The saddest thing about this whole WM3 thing is the fact that the sensationalism of the whole "did they or didn't they" thing has completely trivialized the fact that there are three little boys who will never celebrate another birthday, be hugged by their mothers, enjoy a first kiss, graduate high school... 

Since I first learned about this case back in '99, my anger has always been with the judicial system, but my sympathies have always been with the victims' parents.  As a father myself I cannot imagine how devastating it is to lose a child, and I wouldn't want to imagine.


I actually am going to watch these documentaries next..  As always whenever I watch any news or documentaries about the murder of a child I never stop thinking of the horrors the children had to face before death and like you Lon, as a parent, I wouldnt WANT to imagaine how those parents feel. This case always frustrated me, because #1 if the boys were the murderers- they never showed remorse or paid a big enough price. #2 If the boys didnt do it-then the killer or killers are roaming around free . Either way. the judical system failed those boys..

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

If you've never seen them, steel yourself because they don't flinch when it comes to showing the boys' bodies or their wounds.  It was an ugly crime, and the footage reflects as much.

Also, while GS and I may disagree on the points of the case itself, I do agree with him that the filmmakers don't make much of an effort to be objective; they're obviously biased, and paint those who think the WM3 are guilty as almost comically slanted against them.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

^ Lon I appreciate you acknowledging that.

Yeah, Mistress, check em out.  They are well done.  The third one had the most graphic pics....just fyi.

Just please keep in mind you are seeing a film(s) done with the cooperation and support of the WM3.  Also note in the first one, Beyer (a parent) is painted as a bad guy, with suggestions he did it, till he changes sides and believes the boys are innocent.  Then in the later ones they blame Hobbs (a different parent).

Anyway...let is know what you think.  smile

Amen to that.

Pearl Jam: Twenty.  Great doc celebrating the 20th anniversary of Pearl Jam, directed by Cameron Crowe.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

In Search of the Great Beast 666: Aleister Crowley (2007).  At two hours and five minutes, I was expecting a lot of details and interviews with experts on the occult and what-not.  What I got instead was two hours and five minutes of hammy actors reading from Crowley's journals and a tedious narrator dragging out his lines while adding uninteresting anecdotes in between. 

A complete bore; if you come across it, don't waste your time.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

^^damn I actually had that on my radar too... That's disappointing

'Resurrect Death: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles'
Haven't see it yet, but it has a great back story, and most of it occurs in Philadelphia.  Supposedly a bit freaky.
The trailer.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

Food Inc. -- I have actually seen this one before but its been a couple years...major eye opener and a scary, look inside the food industry which effect everyone. Should not be missed.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

The Magic Trip. 8.5/10

A documentary on Ken Kesey and The Merry Pranksters. Good stuff.

  Ive been interested in seeing this.. was it good Az ?

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

Haven't seen it yet.  Haven't tracked down a place to rent it yet.  sad
I'll post a review when I do.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

^ I just added it to my Flix queue.  They don't have it instant though.  I'm assuming you don't have Flix, so I realize this doesn't help you, but thought I'd mention it.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

^^
The problem is I have Instant Netflix.  sad
First place I checked.  Checked Red Box, too.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

^ Weird.  How can that be?  I had it as a choice to add, and I added it.  Thought they just had one plan....don't understand how it's available for me, but not you.  Odd.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

^^
It split about 6 months ago- you can have Instant only, DVD only, or both.  If you did nothing, you kept both.  Since we streamed way more stuff, we dropped the mail part, which cut the (new) price in half.

I'll see it eventually.  When you see it, let me and MoH know what you thought?

American: Bill Hicks. 10/10

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

The Best Worst Movie Ever. If you haven't seen this by now, you definitely should.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

^^^ I have that and despite hearing nothing but good things, I keep putting it off.  One of these days...

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

The End of America 8.5/10
Really good, and scary. It's a documentary about how the U.S. is very quickly becoming a fascist country due to the diminishment of civil liberties and the undermining of the Constitution, and the passing of certain unconstitutional legislations during the Bush Jr. administration years.

South of the Border 8/10
Oliver Stone's documentary on media bias about Hugo Chavez, president of Venezuela.

Re: Last Documentary You Watched?

A/K/A Tommy Chong.  8/10
