For All Mankind
This movie documents the Apollo missions perhaps the most definitively of any movie under two hours. Al Reinert watched all the footage shot during the missions--over 6,000,000 feet of it, and picked out the best. Instead of being a newsy, fact-filled documentary. Reinart focuses on the human aspects of the space flights. The only voices heard in the film are the voices of the astronauts and mission control.

Right, which is why I phrased the question the way I did. America could have done one of the two space programs; space station (as launch platform for long-distance missions like a moonshot and Mars-shot) or moonshot.

  Nissin Noodles - The Instant Meal with a Lasting Legacy https://youtu.be/fqseyLw2Flg
This episode describes the birth of instant noodles and the technology that turned this modest staple of the Japanese diet into a global phenomenon.

A struggling businessman, Momofuku Ando invented instant noodles 55 years ago. He developed a technique called "flash-frying", in which moisture is removed for better preservation, while locking in flavor. This way, the noodles can be reconstituted by simply pouring hot water over them.

Convenience and good taste assured instant noodles would please the palate of people the world over. Ando's altruistic nature, which inspired him to develop the product to alleviate poverty and suffering, also led him to release the patent. Manufacturers worldwide adopted the flash-frying technique, helping to make instant noodles the world's favorite comfort food.

There was a 205-page English-translated manga in 2006 (Heisei year 18 as the translators would have it) called Project X: Cup Noodle that documents the Cup Noodle development in comic book form. It is less a documentary and more an outright celebration. The men behind the Cup Noodle are presented as shining examples of the Japanese postwar work ethic and ethos, overcoming adversity through lots of hard work, teamwork, trial and error. http://www.amazon.com/Project-X-Nissin-Cup-Noodle/dp/1569709599

In a time when the Japanese food industry was struggling economically, a man named Momofuku Andou sought to turn the tide. Seeking a new type of food for a new era, he ordered the development of a “cup noodle” - a revolutionary idea for a convenient instant noodle. Overcoming public skepticism as well as doubts, even from those within their own company, Andou and his staff of young developers constantly challenged convention to create this new product. Behind the now familiar cup o’ noodle, which has sold over 8.2 billion worldwide, lies a dramatic story of the struggles of the men behind its success. http://www.dmpbooks.com/books/403/

  Forget the name of the short film, been trying to find it. Any help is appreciated. It begins with a man standing on a soapbox spouting some shit, and a crowd is cheering him on.

Consider the case of Speedy Gonzales, a looney tunes character born of the 1950's. The character was shelved by Cartoon Network. To quote Cartoon Network Spokesman Laurie Goldberg from a 2002 interview
>"It hasn't been on the air for years because of its ethnic stereotypes."
In order to remain PC and avoid offense, the quick witted, fast talking mouse went unbroadcast for some time. There's just one problem: Mexicans fucking love Speedy Gonzalez. By doing away with the only major Hispanic character in the franchise, Looney Tunes had done them wrong. Their demand for Speedy is what brought him back; he now runs a pizzeria in The Looney Tunes latest incarnation.

  It's not exactly terrible, but it could be so much better. Especially since it has a good location and concept.

Of course, the biggest highlight no matter how shitty the movie is is that it has Burt Gummer.

I facepalmed when I saw it had Jamie Kennedy, but he was no where near as bad as I thought he would be. Actually, surprisingly decent. If the movie was better, he would still fit the role. Never thought I'd say that about him.

Check it out, it might be worth a watch after a couple beers.

Tremors started sucking when they started going above ground. The reason why Tremors was cool is because the floor is lava. And because the same reason as Jaws, the danger of the plot remained unseen and a mystery for most of it.
In my opinion the Tremors movies would have done better if they stuck to this concept. This kind of movie that engages people and makes them use their imagination at least a little bit is what causes cult fandoms to develop around franchises.

But nowadays it's all CGI where the boring monster is completely visible and completely inferior to what I imagined it to be because I can almost see the damn polygons. Same reason why harry potter was shit, because even a child can imagine a better Dobby than the retard in charge of the CGI program.
Also... holy... they're putting a woman with a bow in every movie now because Catpiss was 'successful'!

Nigga, iz you serious?

Uhh, out of the five of them, it's at least better than #3 and #4.

The first one is still one of the better monster horror movies made. Well-acted, well-cast, great practical effects, and it had verisimilitude. It made sense, followed its own rules, and did a great job of conveying menace.

The second one was comedy-horror. Decent, except for aging CGI, but it was a total genre shift.

The rest, including this one, are just aping the second. This one fails fucking hard, in my opinion. Guns are magic, helicopters are magic, missiles are fucking magic, and all of the sudden, we now have magic lightning bolts on demand.

  Great! I loved the Evil Dead movies, back when I saw The Evil Dead II in the theaters in 1987 (a remake of the 1981 movie, later remade again in 2013). ED2 is a terrific and fun horror movie.

I was clued in to Animmex as a site for viewing (and downloading using GetThemAll Video Downloader for Chrome) TV shows and occasionally movies, such as Rick & Morty, The Walking Dead, Top Gear, etc. Unfortunately, even though these are HD videos, sometimes they can look a little glitchy at times.

Are there any other sites for watching and/or downloading TV shows that you swell people recommend?

That... is absolutely not a Hughes 269 or a Schweizer 300 series airframe.

I've flown more of those fully-articulated pieces of shit trainers than I care to remember. That is not one, there is a 0% likelyhood from the silhouette profile.

Your options are in the 80s-90s era attack helicopter configurations, which are all pretty much indistinguishable unless you can resolve very specific details on them.

Most likely, its a T-129 because only Turkey would be stupid enough to do that, aside from flying top cover for ISIS... seriously what fucking moron noob rotorcraft pilot flies like that in an area swarming with MANPADS and just makes a tight little orbit at about 100ft AGL around a piece of sand off from a highway. It's like "HEY SHOOT ME! I AM A BIG EXPENSIVE TARGET!" without actually providing any security for that convoy...

Really makes me think its edited video, to be honest. I can't figure out what the pilot is trying to even do there, though the video doesn't really show anything... it just feels off to me, like I wouldn't be flying that way to begin with.

The tail looks too tall in relation to the length of the boom, which extends from the top of the fuselage, for it to be a T-129. No indication of landing gear either.

The compression is really bad, but I'm certain it's a Hind.

TALE OF THE TELETANK: THE BRIEF RISE AND LONG FALL OF RUSSIA’S MILITARY ROBOTS
Seventy-four years ago, Russia accomplished what no country had before, or has since—it sent armed ground robots into battle. These remote-controlled Teletanks took the field during one of WWII’s earliest and most obscure clashes, as Soviet forces pushed into Eastern Finland for roughly three and a half months, from 1939 to 1940. The Finns, by all accounts, were vastly outnumbered and outgunned, with exponentially fewer aircraft and tanks. But the Winter War, as it was later called (it began in late November, and ended in mid-March), wasn’t a swift, one-sided victory. As the more experienced Finnish troops dug in their heels, Russian advancement was proving slow and costly. So the Red Army sent in the robots.
Specifically, the Soviets deployed two battalions of Teletanks, most of them existing T-26 light tanks stuffed with hydraulics and wired for radio control. Operators could pilot the unmanned vehicle from more than a kilometer away, punching at rows of dedicated buttons (no thumbsticks or D-pads to be found) to steer the tank or fire on targets with a machine gun or flame thrower. And the Teletank had the barest minimum of autonomous functionality: if it wandered out of radio range, the tank would come to a stop after a half-minute, and sit, engine idling, until contact was reestablished.
Notably missing, though, was any sort of remote sensing capability—the Teletank couldn’t relay sound or audio back to its human driver, most often located in a fully-crewed T-26 trailing behind the mechanized one. This was robotic teleoperation at its most crude, and made for halting, imprecise maneuvering across uneven terrain.
What good was the Teletank, then? Though records are sparse, the unmanned tanks appear to have been used in combat, including during the Battle of Summa, an extended, two-part engagement that eventually forced a Finnish retreat. The Teletank’s primary role was to throw fire without fear, offsetting its lack of accuracy with gouts of flame.
On March 13, 1940, Finland and the USSR signed a treaty in Moscow, ending the Winter War. It was the end of the Teletank, as well—in the wider, even more brutal conflict to come, the T-26 was obsolete in practically every way, lacking the armor and armament to stand up to German tanks, or even to antitank weapons fielded by the Finnish. With no additional units built after 1940, the T-26 was a dead design rolling, and the remote-controlled version was just as doomed.
For a few months, nearly three quarters of a century ago, Russia led the world in military robotics. It’s a position the country would never hold again, as both Soviet and post-breakup forces have all but abandoned the development of armed ground and aerial bots. Even as recently as 2008, during its conflict with Georgia—triggered, in part, by the downing of Georgian reconnaissance drones—Russian dron
