Korengal wasn't nearly as good as Restrepo, but still solid.

Yeah I was left with the assumption that this was leftover footage thrown together for a cash grab after the success of Restrepo. It didn't really offer anything new.

I'm starting to get into ESPN's 30 for 30 docs. Pretty interesting stuff. Anyone have favorites I should seek out? There's a lot to choose from.

I wasn't able to watch the entire thing, but what I saw of their doc on sports photographers was outstanding.

I thought the Bo Jackson and The U ones were the best so far.

Been watching a bunch of nature docs. The spy series on netflix is really good and has excellent imagery. "Life"is another good one.

Most are very good. The Christian Laetner one is really good too.

Saw Fahrenheit 9/11 again the other night. That footage of the soldiers in Iraq made me think of you Ruddo. I can't imagine what you've seen.

The only thing worse was that quote I just read from Brendan O'Brien about Pearl Jams last album

Watched Tyson last night, which was one of the best movies I've ever seen. Innovative, unique, and full of piercing empathy, understanding, and social clarity. I love James Toback.

Watching the documentary "1" right now. Pretty good if you are an F1 fan.

The 30 for 30 about the miracle on ice from the russian perspective was pretty good. Also the one on rotisserie league baseball.

I never realized just how deadly a history Formula 1 racing has.
