4 part HBO doc on Dre (and others)

Just from the trailer alone you see they spoke to Snoop, Eminem, Springsteen, Bono and Stevie Nicks

Whoa, I didn't know this even existed. Considering I had a binge on LA punk recently (I got Germs and Screamers and Circle Jerks on vinyl AND re-read We Got the Neutron Bomb) I should probably watch this

Atari: Game Over- pretty good documentary on Atari burying ET cartridges in a New Mexico landfill. The parts about the digging up the cartridges was ok, but i was more interested in the history of Atari and the bumbling of the release of ET, giving the poor guy only 5 weeks to complete the game from start to finish. Makes me want to get a Flashback to play these old games again.

KING COHEN

Featuring a cast of thousands! (you will get a kick out of the partial listing at the end of the trailer)

It's also great to see Dave Schow show up unexpectedly

On another note, I did see some of The Defiant Ones when HBO had a free weekend run recently. My conclusion was that both guys are basically just some rich assholes that didn't deserve a freakin' three part documentary to be made about them no matter their success. Mean, I know, but that was the reaction. The Dee Barnes beating put a real bad taste in my mouth and I didn't care about Jimmy Iovine's workaholic ass at all.

I'm just lucky I didn't see the third part which apparently is nothing but a commercial for Beats

It's about the most famous musician you've probably never heard of.

Just to remind people, the Ken Burns documentary series on the Vietnam War begins on Sunday.  I believe it is 2 weeks long for 90 min - 2 hour shows so this one looks to be just as in depth as the Civil War and Baseball ones

George Michael: Freedom

This was filmed before Michael's death and he is the narrator of his own documentary

Quote

George Michael: Freedom features interviews with the five supermodels from David Fincher’s “Freedom! ’90” video; Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Tatjana Patitz and Linda Evangelista – who come together for the first time to discuss their experience on the iconic music video. The film also features interviews with some of Michaels’ most famous friends and music legends, including Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Ricky Gervais, Nile Rogers, Mark Ronson, Tracey Emin, Liam Gallagher, Mary J. Blige, Jean Paul Gaultier, James Corden and Tony Bennett.

FYI, all the episodes are currently available on their website and through their mobile/streaming app.

To no surprise, The Vietnam War is pretty awesome. It helps that some of the people in this one are still alive to talk about it. 

In other news my blood pressure and hostility are going to increase around 1 AM through the next week or so
