It’s more than possible that I’ve watched this before. I’ve seen versions of at least parts of the documentary about the making of the “Trilogy” on several occasions. Plus, I’ve listened to DVD commentary tracks, so some of the voices are familiar to me even when the faces may not be. My Star Wars game […]Read more "Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy — a documentary review"
On other occasions, I’ve mentioned that one of the benefits I’ve discovered in being an Amazon Prime member is my access to an untold number of television series, movies and documentaries that I might not otherwise watch through Prime Video. Geek, and You Shall Find was one of the documentaries the computer suggested I might […]Read more "Geek, and You Shall Find (2019) — a documentary review"

No, I was part of that mass group of humanity who was funding the cars […]Read more "The Image Revolution — a documentary review"
While it has become difficult for me to watch any documentary these days without thinking about the brilliant Fred Armisen/Bill Hader mockumentary series on IFC, Documentary Now!, I will still watch one when the subject matter appeals to me. You know what subjects appeal to me, of course. Just read the titles of my posts […]Read more "Batman & Bill (2017 documentary) — a review"
Chaos On The Bridge is a documentary currently available streaming on Netflix as I’m typing this. Written, directed and narrated by William Shatner, the original Captain Kirk, this hour-long documentary is about the turbulent first years of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Documentaries don’t fill much of my viewing time in my on-going pursuit of […]Read more "Chaos On The Bridge: a Star Trek:TNG documentary review"
