Good documentaries?
Just wondering if you guys know of any good docs to watch. I'm pretty open as to what they're about. I haven't seen a thread like this, but if there is one feel free to link it.

Thanks

Yeah I got a good documentary for you. It's called a fucking history book. Try it some time. You'll learn a shit load more than you would off of T.V. unless you get a shitty book. Gotta watch out what kind of book you buy.

Well "Religulous" is always good. Laughat

An interesting one I came across was called "Superheroes". It's about real-life people who dress up as superheroes (their own brand; not Batman or anything) and stalk the streets at night looking for injustice and evildoers. It's part fascinating, part sad, and part inspiring. It was kind of cool to see these people dress up as heroes and actively help the homeless and the poor.

There's a good bit of unintentional comedy as well - given the topic.

Aaaaw I do to, it gets boring after a while. When I'm not reading about history I prefer to watch movies based in that historical timeline rather than watch a documentary.

Here is another website:

One very good documentary (if you've got about 3 hours to kill) is about the 14th-century sojourner Ibn Battuta, who traveled just about everywhere between Northern Africa and China over a 30 year period. It is hosted by a British Arabist who would have fit in quite nicely with the Monty Python crew:
