"I Know That Voice" - Wonderful!
It's a documentary by and about voice actors in animation and video games.
Very interesting, very amusing, very fun and lovely people on camera doing wacky voices.

Where did you see this?
Rented it on Google Play

This is literally the first time I've heard of someone renting a movie on Google Play. It never even crosses my mind.  But thanks!

Ancient Aliens Debunked.

Granted, it doesn't take much, but this documentary is why skepticism exists--to analyze spurious claims and get to the truth.

I haven't watch the doc  but is it basically showing clips of ancient aliens with the voice over, "That's not true either"?

edited to add the required "not".

No, it shows clips from the show, then looks at the actual archaeology and logic behind several talking points from the show, directly addressed.  It also points out flaws, misrepresentations, outright lies, and incorrect assumptions made by the Ancient Aliens jackasses.  It's pretty well done.  It also does an inadvertently good job of illustrating how the makers of the show couch things to make their points sound plausible to lay-people.

Oh, and the guy who put it together went out of his way to cite his sources and give you access to all of them on an associated website.

As an ancient astronaut theory ex-believer, this is of special interest to me.

Yeah, same here.  I was never much for religion, but UFOs and such were things that always drew my attention.  I still enjoy much of the stories, but no longer through the eyes of a believer.

I think there was, but this one was done largely by one guy, and the 9/11 debunkery, at least from what I remember, may have actually done by National Geographic.

"The Wrecking Crew" has made it to Netflix. This is about the legendary LA studio musicians who played on countless hits in the 1960s. People once mocked the Monkees because they did not play on their records (these guys, and legendary bassist Carol Kaye did) but artists from Frank Sinatra to the Beach Boys to the Byrds, the Mamas and the Papas, the Association and dozens more relied on them. It is a great story.

For the similar experience down south, "Muscle Shoals" is also an entertaining view if you like music. These largely white Alabama session musicians played for many of the 60s black artists like Aretha Franklin in very tense racial times.

Hey Harry, here you go, this one appears to be the 9/11 bullshit debunker:



Warning: Alex Jones appears.

Kind of a sad reminder that, at one time, the History Channel was actually worth watching.  And is it just me, or does anyone else have the urge to want to punch the Loose Change kid in the face?

Just saw that over the weekend. I'm a huge nerd when it comes to voice actors and I... knew just about every single voice actor they interviewed (except for some of the super old ones from the old Hannah-Barbera cartoons).

John DiMaggio may fave!

A little sad that H. Jon Benjamin wasn't there, he's another one of my forever faves.

I didn't want to start a new topic just for this but it kinda goes here:

Discovery Channel Is Finally Breaking Up With Bad Science

Quote
John Hoffman is the new boss of documentaries at the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, and the Science Channel, and he wants you to know big changes are coming to the networks sometimes criticized for favoring overcooked "docu-tainment" over scientifically accurate programming.

Let's hope this works.  ;)
The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites'.
