A 1950's Howard Hughes employee-confidante, George Van Tassel, uses alien guidance and Nikola Tesla's ideas to build a time machine -- The Integratron. Is he deluded, or could it actually work? As waves of devotees join him in the California desert, the FBI gets involved fearing insurrection and possibly more. Nearing completion, Van Tassel's tale and the Integratron meet an unexpected end: the "workings" of the dome finally emerge. The unusual story is told by historians, astronomers and current residents of Joshua Tree, including the stewards of the Integratron, the Karl Sisters, and a galaxy of believers and skeptics alike.

I will start off by saying that it's extremely difficult to write an article about a documentary about an event that had a huge impact on one country's life. As such, I am going to put it simply as I feel it's my duty to do so. This is the story of our planet Earth, one that was altered by the events of the year 1999. I won't go into details here, but suffice it to say that the biggest story of all is about how we as humans are responsible for the immense destruction of the planet. It's been a while since the last documentary of this kind, so I figured I would write one about it, in order to encourage the people who watched it to watch it again as well. The film opens with the founding of the United Nations, and the aim of this organisation is to ensure peace and protect the planet from natural disasters. What we see here is the world of the past, and the future we will see. The human race has been able to survive for hundreds of years by using very little fossil fuels and the amount of air pollution and harmful chemicals have decreased drastically. We've all seen what the climate is doing to the world, and we can't see any sign of the end of the current times. The only way we can make a change is by finding a way to stop polluting the environment. The film is a true piece of documentary, but also a good story, as it's important to get the message out there to the world, even if it means taking the film-makers to the highest point of the highest mountain in the world. There are some interesting facts about the main subject of this documentary, about the year 1999, but the biggest story of all is the complete and utter destruction of the planet we live on. It's a story that will stay with us for a long time, and it's something that is something that we as humans can't take back, and it's something we can't just blame on technology. It's a story that will leave a mark on you, and it's something you can't just forget, and the thing is that you can't just blame the people of the earth. The director of this documentary, Gavin Schmidt, is a Canadian, so he has the background to tell the story of this incredible event in our history. He begins the documentary with a map, showing us the way we humans have been destroying the planet over the past 100,000 years. I could say that it's one of the most shocking films I've ever seen, and

I can't think of many movies I've watched that were as perfectly cast and filmed as this one. The characters are not developed in a way that you feel your emotions are affecting them. The world you see on screen is real. The atmosphere is very real, and you feel the alien. They always try to show you why they are the way they are, without being preachy. I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes a very realistic movie.

The movie is a great starting point for a beginner in the field of astronomy. The topic is quite interesting, and the interviews are well done. But the movie is not particularly informative, and it is quite long. I would recommend watching it on a TV or at home on a big screen. The film would have been better if it had been shorter.

I was surprised to see that this documentary had such a low rating and I am happy to say that it is not one of those "one hour documentaries" I have heard about, as it really is one hour of people telling their stories. The story is told in a very clear, compelling way, and I really enjoyed it. The fact that the movie is made by such an expert in the field and even the actors involved are not in it just adds to the experience. I would recommend the movie to anyone, as it really is a great way to start your day. If you are a fan of the documentary form, then you will love this movie.

I was really looking forward to this film. I'm a scientist, I work with these types of topics. The documentary was entertaining and informative, but the science is not always as clear as it is made out to be. Some of the information given is in fact wrong. Some of the information given is also not true. It is a good film. But, I think that the scientists themselves are the ones that should be praised for what they have done and not criticized for what they haven't done. I am not sure what they are doing to make this film, but I am sure that they are doing a great job. If you have a problem with science, then this is not the film for you. It is a good film to watch for the entertainment value, but it is not a documentary that is meant to be taken seriously. I don't know what the filmmakers are trying to achieve with this film, but I think it is important to realize that the people who are doing this are doing a good job and should be praised for their work.

In the past, when I have seen a film called "Why Aliens?" the answers were rather poor. "Who cares?" the movies were just so boring. As for "Alien: Covenant", well, it was so boring that I had to watch it 3 times just to catch the big break to get to the bottom of it all. The film begins with the crew of the colony ship Covenant finding that the planet they landed on, "Earth", is inhabited by creatures called "The Visine". The crew tries to return to the ship, but discover that the ship is at the end of the galaxy. All ships are set to leave, except for the Covenant, but they are also going to leave the Earth. As a result, the crew of the Covenant heads to a planet they've been told is a moon of a planet they've never heard of called "Gravity". The Covenant is scheduled to fly to that moon, only to discover that it is going to be a colony of sorts. Then, the Covenant leaves the ship and heads to the planet Gravity. And so begins the film. As you can see, the movie is very "small" as far as the amount of "stuff" the "special effects" can throw at you. For instance, when a monster attack the Covenant, there is a "pink glow" or "flash of light". This is a very "limited" special effect, and is only used to show what the monster is doing. These kind of effects are used in only few "action" movies, and so are only used in very limited amounts of the "special effects" used in this movie. For example, when the monster starts attacking the crew, the special effects show the "monster" as a huge glowing ball of light. This is a very limited special effect, and is only used for about 10 seconds. In other words, in most cases, special effects are used in very limited amounts of the "special effects" used in the film. "Alien: Covenant" is no different, other than the limited amount of the "special effects". The only "special effects" used are the "flash of light" and "pink glow" of the "monster". So, even with the limited amount of "special effects" used in the film, this is not a "big" film. The only other "special effects" used are the "slithering" of the "monster" (which is not used as much as you would think), and the "shock" effects of the "monster"

I am a big fan of the franchise, and it was nice to see a documentary that was more about the actual story than just the trivia. I don't know how this is supposed to be a documentary, but it seemed like it was trying to be a documentary, and it was more like a music video. It is worth a watch if you are a fan of the series, but it is not really worth watching if you aren't. I have heard many fans of the series say that this is not a documentary and that they were disappointed that they weren't shown more. The fact that the documentaries that they were in were more about the trivia and not the actual story made me think that maybe they should have been more involved in the actual story. The cast is great, but there were a lot of people who didn't do a good job. I would have liked to see more of them in the documentary. Overall, it was a good documentary, but not a documentary that I would watch again.

It is not just a documentary but a film that has to be viewed for its significance. The Human Race is being revealed in a sense that has been hidden from the public for a long time. This documentary will be watched and appreciated by many. And will give you a better understanding of humanity and our ability to see our world in a different way. It will also give you the ability to connect with other people who have gone through similar experiences. The documentary is not to be taken lightly as it will challenge the beliefs and attitudes that many people have of the human race. To a viewer that has been raised on a strong belief that our planet was created by God, this documentary will make you question what you believe and how you live your life. This is the first documentary I have ever viewed that is both documentary and movie that has really grabbed me in both senses of the word. There are many things that will make this film a must watch for all audiences.

This movie will leave you wondering about your values. You will be touched and inspired by the story, and by the art. Your children will be touched by the way the world works, and will wonder how our lives are so different. It will touch you to think, and you will be touched by the way your life changes.

This documentary could be a bit over the top, but is still well worth seeing, just to see the footage that is used and the personalities that have taken part. There is a long sequence that looks at the whole selection process. However, the documentaries do not cover the basic aspects of the program, such as who gets to choose who gets to go on the program, who has to have their parent or guardian sign off on the project. This makes the material almost irrelevant to the wider public. The only person that this documentary mentions, is Nick Hanauer. He is interviewed on a few occasions, and all are very positive about the program. As for the stories, there are many, but the focus is on the interviews and the themes that they cover. It is well worth seeing.

I've been to Antarctica and the stuff is ice-free and in many places you can walk around, but I would recommend that people do not visit the land, at least not to save their lives. Some of the areas are a bit dangerous, so if you want to go, there's some precautions that need to be followed. The ones that really caught my attention were the ones where you could hear the sea in the background. The reason that they didn't add it was probably because they wanted to preserve the scene for the next ones. I would also like to mention that there is some low light in the film. If you are shooting a movie in the dark, make sure that you get some lights or other equipment that will enable you to see the dark. In the end, the Antarctic is a beautiful place to see, but it is not for everyone. If you are looking for some great adventure, and it's not too hard to find, go and visit Antarctica.

I would rate this film 8 out of 10 if I could. The same rating for another documentary made on the same subject. But this film is so true to life. The thing that strikes me the most is the attention to detail. For example, this film has a saying that goes something like "No man is a great chemist and no man can teach a man to work in a laboratory". The problem is that men (and men in general) just can't get on that line. If you could give this film a 10 out of 10, I would do it. I would say that it's worth watching and that you should see it.

This documentary tells the story of the creation of the planet and the resultant climatic change that took place during the first half of the 20th century. What really intrigued me about the movie was the social commentary that was embedded in the narrative and how the viewer is given a more nuanced understanding of how the current global warming agenda is affecting the lives of the most vulnerable in the world. An eye opening, inspiring film. See it!

I have been a fan of the works of Iain M. Banks since I was a teenager. I found the films he made in the 1970s and 1980s to be fascinating, imaginative, and funny. This documentary is just as good. It covers the history of the Banks' work, the man himself, and the people he influenced. I enjoyed it. It does not try to cover the entire Banks' work, and I do not believe it was meant to do that. It is a good documentary that is very entertaining. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Iain M. Banks or anyone who is interested in his work.

Very nice documentary. It presents a huge historical scientific community about the past, present and future, and how they were affected by the two cosmic cataclysms of 1999 and 2001. We learn that both events were foretold by the ancient Egyptians thousands of years ago. Some of the experts believe that the Maya could have foreseen the future, while others believe that the Mayans were mostly dumbfounded by the events. All that is interesting to watch, and what makes it unique is that it is presented as a documentary, and that it is quite self-explanatory, although you can't go see it in a cinema. A bit of background is given, about the origins of the world, and the origins of the human race, but the human race is only briefly mentioned. It has a somewhat historical feel about it, but it is not really explained in detail. Most of the time, I was watching the presentation and not the history. What is explained is also not explained very well, especially if you've never seen any of the documentaries that it is based on. The documentary does not give us a lot of background information about the two events. It is also difficult to understand the two-dimensional science presented in the documentary, because they really don't make a lot of sense. You have to see the documentary to know what I mean. If you want to learn about the past and the present, you could watch a few documentaries about it. Personally, I think it's more interesting to watch documentaries about the events themselves, because they are quite easy to understand, and because they are based on research and have a lot of context. I give it a 8 out of 10.

If you are not a climate change denier, and you're a science-minded person, you should definitely watch this documentary. The narrator, author, and an all-star cast of scientific experts (including the most well-known climate scientist alive, Richard Lindzen) will go into a lot of detail about why climate change is bad, and how humans are the root of the problem. But it's not just a 'war on coal' or a 'war on oil' documentary. It's also a call to arms for environmental conservation. You will hear all the claims you will hear, and you will also see what's actually happening in real-time, so that when the alarm bells ring, you will know what to do. The environmental stories are fascinating, and the information given is interesting. The current problems are explained with a realistic look, and that makes them more engaging than the facts would otherwise be. The music is also great, and the cinematography is excellent. I really recommend this documentary, especially to anyone who cares about environmental issues. I give it a 9 out of 10.

I find myself drawn to films that offer different points of view. This is one of those. The movie is the first of a trilogy that offers a variety of perspectives, not just those who are on the "frontlines" of the conflict, but those who are marginalized and must choose their side. The director speaks with an earnestness that goes beyond the typical view of war being a tragedy of bodies and ruined lives. This is a tough movie to sit through, but if you give it a chance, you will come out with a much better sense of what happened. Like I said, it is not easy to watch, but you will come out with a better sense of what really happened. The movie runs about 2 hours and 30 minutes, but I found myself wanting to watch it again. I felt like I was able to relate to the characters, and at the end of the movie I wanted to know what the story was about. The director does a good job at capturing the essence of the Vietnam War. There is the realism that there is no question that the war will be there in twenty years, and that everyone who was there will have their story told. There is the discomfort and pain that the war inflicts on the men and women who were there, and the moral and cultural impacts that it has on people's lives. There is also the fact that the war was a great "peculiar institution," one that served the national interest and was responsible for the deaths of over thirty thousand Vietnamese soldiers and civilians. The people who died and the people who were traumatized by this war will not be forgotten.

This is the most enjoyable, thought provoking and comprehensive documentary I have seen about the UFO phenomenon. The interviewer and producer of the film speak with a large number of people from various countries around the world about their beliefs and experiences with UFOs. They explain that they have been contacted by many people who have experienced UFOs, both terrestrial and extraterrestrial, and that their testimonies are based on real experience and in many cases corroborated. There are many disturbing facts and incidents that people are afraid to tell. They explain that there are a lot of myths and misunderstandings about UFOs, and that there are also many false beliefs that have been held by the public. This documentary also addresses many important scientific and physical issues related to UFOs. They explain that there is no scientific evidence that suggests that UFOs are "our planet's landing gear", that they are "an artificial visitation", or that they are in any way "the most advanced beings on earth". These are the beliefs of many people, and if they are wrong, there are many legitimate scientific explanations for their existence. Most of the people interviewed have been contacted by a variety of UFOs, and they have heard various explanations, but they have also heard stories of people who have witnessed UFOs. The main reason they decided to film the film was that they had all experienced UFOs, and they wanted to know more about the reality of UFOs. It is a great documentary, and is worth watching.
