This week’s Documentaries To Check Out

Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives

This documentary is for all those Hip Hop heads who lived through 90‘s Hip Hop. You remember hearing those shows via tape if you weren’t in New York. I remember hearing tapes all the time and some of the songs they played you would never hear them anywhere else or even hear them again. It was the place to be for real MCs to showcase their skill. You get the story from the start to the end of the duos run, even that point where it felt like they sold out by being on Hot 97. Great documentary for those who love Hip Hop and remember or just want to get a quick glimpse into a time far gone.
I Am Road Comic

This documentary explores the perception of what is to be a road comic. You get the real details of budgeting and how hectic the travel is as well as the places that suck for road comic…. Houston, don’t know why but it is universally panned by comics in this film. You get the unwritten rules of being the opening act to selling merchandise.

Going Clear

This documentary is very close to being completely full of hate towards Scientology. What keeps that from happening is the fact that the people speaking were all at some point in their lives a member of scientology. The begining isn’t much new information, it’s the second half that gets creepy. Every religion is a few steps away from being a cult or just becoming something awful and this documentary shows that scientology has crossed the line a few times but depending on where you stand with scientology you either see it or you don’t.
