    I rarely watch any movies or go the movies at all. However, when I do watch movies I only watch documentaries since its my favorite genre in movies. My favorite documentary I recently saw on netflix was Food Inc., Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia, and The Union. What is your favorite documentary?

    Aside from everything David Attenborough has ever made, I really liked Helvetica and Spirit of the Marathon.

    sxydrkhair saidFood Inc
    The Future of Food
    Bad Seed: The Truth about our Food


    Food Inc. was excellent. But those poor chickens, so fat and overgrown that they break their legs. I feel a twinge of guilt every time I have poultry now.

    My god yes.
    I loved that movie. One of my favorites of all time.


    I also like how Bowling for Columbine. I felt like it showed people that, "Duh... Parents, take some responsibility".

    "I Survived..." Comes on the Bio channel. "Deadliest Catch" was pretty good too. I can watch any "Real Sports" or any other ESPN documentary too.
