Close Encounters
(2014)

High quality animations, decent acting and well detailed recreation of events.
I have to admit that first season contains many events already shown in many previous TV series such as: Malstrom Airbase incident, Kecksburg incident, Phoenix Lights incident, Japanese Airlines incident over Alaska and Rendlesham Forest incident. Although these episode were still interesting to watch due to nice re-enacting of the events with intriguing acting and high quality computer animations (which most of other UFO series lack of). Besides these, there were also many episodes in season which 1 included incidents from 21st century. Thankfully, non of the episodes contained Roswell "incident" (now clearly debunked as Project Mogul balloon), 1800s Aurora Texas incident (debunked as hoax) or even over exploited Betty and Barney Hill abduction. Second 2 is even more interesting as it contains less known cases, including 21st century encounters.

In general, this is TV series with high quality animations and with well detailed recreation of events. Episodes are well edited and are full of coherent interviews with investigators giving an interesting perspective. End of each episode contains short and interesting analysis with little assumptions being projected - they give quick opinion of skeptics and briefly show some photos/documents collected during investigation. Series gives clear view of events and leave it to the audience to decide what they think about these encounters. I consider it to be, currently, the best UFO series after Alien Mysteries. Complete opposite to sensationalist, cheap and awfully edited Hangar 1.

Hangar 1: The UFO Files
(2014)

This series does more damage, disinformation and ridicule, than good for the proper scientific research of this phenomenon.
Hangar 1" is one of the worst documentary series about UFO phenomenon, I have ever seen. It's an absolute disgrace. Awful editing, cheap animations, showing little original footage (sometimes they use fake footage when real one, actually, exists) and most of all, horrible analysis of evidence and facts. The whole series is presented by a group of so called "UFO experts" who do nothing more but project their assumptions, with little critical thought and questioning. There is little scientific analysis from scientists and technicians, whatsoever. Manye cases have been even debunked long time ago, so why do they still keep repeating the same stories over and over again. Such series does more damage, disinformation and ridicule than good for the proper scientific research of this phenomenon. To compare, there are great UFO series such as Alien Mysteries (2013) or Close Encounters (2014)- they are with high quality animations, well detailed recreation of events and. They are well edited and are full of interviews with eye witnesses. Contain decent analysis with little assumptions. They give clear view of events and leave it to the audience to decide what they think. Complete opposite to Hangar 1.

The Purge
(2013)

Another movie feeding on people's ignorance when it comes to human behavior and human nature.
Another movie feeding on people's ignorance when it comes to human behavior and human nature. The whole movie is built upon dangerous pseudoscience and complete lack of any understanding regarding human behavioral biology and behavioral evolution. The movie completely ignores biological-psychological-social factors shaping human behavior, insisting that human behavior is innate and inherently flawed. No behavior is inborn. No one is born cruel, greedy, homophobic, fascist, bigot etc. Behaviour is always learnt and acquired. Such movies spread disinformation and perpetuate current primitive value system with it's culture of violence and ignorance.

The Purge: Anarchy
(2014)

Another retarded Hollywood movie for uneducated authority/government lovers spreading ignorant idea that anarchy means chaos and disorder.
TRUE ANARCHY = TRUE DEMOCRACY = TRUE FEMINISM. What mainstream media and government brainwash people about is not anarchism. True anarchism has nothing to do with chaos or disorder. Also true anarchism is not an ideology because it is not based in any political or religious notion. True anarchism is self regulatory because is built upon equality of everyone and with every adult person being highly educated and informed. It's rooted in science and rational. Science is an opposite to ideology. Effective, intelligent anarchy requires absence of leaders of any kind. It is highly intellectually advanced, apolitical system without authority. It's a leaderless system and it may require guidance but not authority. Basically people guide, teach a learn from each other accordingly to their competent experience. True anarchy is built upon coherent and relevant scientific understandings and requires intelligent management of the Earth's resources with sustainable application of science and technology for social and environmental concern. True anarchy requires true science. Unfortunately, what pervades in our society is not a true science but pseudo-science. It is usually an unintelligent pseudo-intellectual "trickstery" with no consideration to well being of anyone and anything; void of intelligent actions and understanding of interdependency of all living life forms within our environment. True anarchy can only be acquired if everyone in society is equally, highly educated/informed. If all population is equally very well informed and educated then people do not require leaders because they are capable of arriving at the most intelligent, reciprocally altruistic decisions/solutions altogether. That's why it is crucial for all of us to highly educate and inform each other. Current social structures have been so messed up because they are built upon ignorance. It becomes detrimental to whole society if ignorant and uneducated people try to impose some changes by voting in the subjects they lack of any relevant understanding (simply they have no clue what they are voting about). In such cases decisions are being made ("made" and not "arrived at"), based on ignorance of majority of population. These decisions made have little of social and environmental concern. Also, such ignorance tend to perpetuate hierarchy or leader based social structures revolving around political notions. People choose political leaders to think and do the work for them. They always choose incompetent leaders because they do not understand what kind of competency is required. They choose politicians on the basis of their subjective feelings, ideologies, political notions, politician's physical appearance or capability to generate impressive speeches and manipulative promises and so on. Ignorant people are not actually interested in politician's technical-intellectual-scientific competence and if certain politician (leader) is actually capable of offering tangible solutions to social problems and if he/she can actually understand the root causes of social/environmental problems. Almost every politician knows very little about anything relevant to improvement of the quality of society such as how to technologically improve the safety of roads and transport system, how to eradicate social factors perpetuating homelessness, crime and lack of education, how to improve agricultural yield while making it more environmentally sustainable etc. Human/social problems since the dawn of men have always been of technical nature not of political nature. Politicians usually come from legal or financial background not technical/scientific background. Because they know so little, only things they can do is to impose some temporary patchwork in the form of new law or policy. All laws/policies are meaningless paper proclamations which do not eradicate the root causes of the problems but provide a temporary, relief pseudo solutions which generate even more problems. It's sweeping up the problem under the carpet. For example: politicians introduce laws to punish people susceptible to developing addictions to different drugs by imprisoning them instead of trying to eradicate the root causes making all these people develop such susceptibility to addictions in the first place (the root causes would be poverty, unsustainable or abusive parenting, unsustainable educational system, value system disorder in society etc). It's easier for them to infinitely introduce pointless laws then make an effort to educate themselves. If laws were to improve the well being of society then considering the number of them which have been constantly introduced, we should be living in social paradise by now. Instead we are living in deeply more and more distorted and controlled society. People should not expect things to become better if they cannot think for themselves and they think they should elect someone to think for them.

The Secret
(2006)

Disgustingly consumerist and shallow, pseudo-scientific, new agish style mumbo jumbo, completely detached from the laws of nature and void of any logic.
"THE SECRET" Movie and the book based on the movie.

One of the most delusionary, dangerous systems of belief people have invented recently. No different than any other religion. Disgustingly consumerist and shallow, pseudo-scientific, new agish style mumbo jumbo, completely detached from the laws of nature and void of any logic. No wonder it is so popular considering that vast majority of people are not capable of expressing some degree of intelligence and critical thinking.

It's astonishing how crafty unintelligent Homo Sapiens is in generating delusionary systems hahahaha

Ah and don't forget! According to The Secret. Greed, acquisition of material goods and wealth, wanting of power are goooooooooooood! ha ha

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
(2011)

The reason they did this remake is because most US viewers are too ignorant when it comes to non-US, non-English movies and they are not capable of reading subtitles...
I doesn't make sense to make US version of the movie just 2 years after original was released. Original was exceptional. This is a merely commercial corporate Hollywood copy designed for mass entertainment and profit. The reason they did this remake is because most US viewers are too ignorant when it comes to non-US, non-English movies and they are not capable of reading subtitles. They did similar thing with another great Swedish movie called "Let The Right One In". Such an ignorant, senseless and pointless attitude is a typical of multinational mainstream profit-entertainment companies. I give it 3 stars as main characters performance was very well done.

The Economics of Happiness
(2011)

Such a great documentary should be available to watch for free...
I don't understand why such a great documentary has such a very limited access. It should be available for everyone to watch for free. The information should be spread and shared. Monetary cost of production is irrelevant. For example there are many exceptional documentaries produced by The Zeitgeist Movement or The Venus Project which are free to watch despite that production basically bankrupted people who produced them. They didn't care as they understand that the planet is the most important not some profit margin. We are reaching the point of no return when planet's ecosystem will no longer be able to sustain and support human life. You can always ask for donations. The fact that it is nor free to watch undermines the whole message the documentary is trying to send through...

Thrive: What on Earth Will It Take?
(2011)

"Boxed in" and badly under-informed solutions...
The movie doesn't bring anything new to the subjects. Also, is poorly edited and chaotic. The first part it is pretty much about paleoastrounatical hypotheses ala Erich Von Daniken mixed with some random ufological facts and myths. It mixes science with lay hypothesis. The second part is pretty much very simplified revision of documentary "Money as Debt" mixed with Illuminati/New World Order hypotheses in style of Alex Jones - Info Wars. The last part is supposed to show the solutions we need to take if we want to change the current social paradigm. Despite few good points regarding changing our lifestyle and ceasing our support for current system it doesn't give any rational and logical scientific solutions to current social problems. Solutions they offer is nothing more but a patch-working the effects of social/system defects and they are not solutions focused on the causes of the problems. Those problems are not caused by some secret government agenda or some secret society but malfunctioning monetary/profit system itself and those problems are an intrinsic part of it. Corruption of human mind is the effect caused by the corrupted environment in which human being is being raised since prenatal stage. Gamble has a very "inboxed" way of thinking in how he tries to find "solutions" within current monetary/profit system. Well, I don't expect creators of this film to think out of the box of monetary system as the movie is not free to watch as they sell this film online and also ask for donations. They try to persuade the viewer to join their movement. I don't really understand why well educated person would do such thing if there are other great and better organizations like The Venus Project or The Zeitgeist Movement which offer very deeply researched and educated scientific solutions to world problems...

Alien Visitor
(1997)

Great movie.
Great movie. If you are very educated person with open mind without rigid, automatic thinking and you can think out of the box you will love this movie. If you aren't then this movie will be a harsh attack on your ego and the illusionary personality it created. You will hate it... As shown in the movie such identification/attachment to illusionary mental concepts of religion, ideology, status, wealth, race, nationality, country and other similar is caused by a lack of control over one's mind. Identifications with such fleeting mental concepts are only possible when a person's mind is not open and has become very rigid. Such identifications/attachments have proved to be extremely dangerous and destructive to all life on this planet. The madness of human mind can be clearly seen on global scale. What has been happening around the world is a direct projection of all individual minds of all people. The history of human kind is a history of mental illness. If you look at the history of human kind using medical criteria you would come up with a diagnosis of severely psychopathic mental disorder. As explained in the movie, considering the current state of life on our planet projection of such mental attitude is no longer acceptable...

Zeitgeist: Moving Forward
