"Making a Murderer" went up on Netflix and it's fantastic. Binged through 6 episodes yesterday.

Description from the New York Times:


Well worth watching. i think he's innocent!

You know they found him guilty of murdering a reporter in 2005 right? Pretty sure he was a super psychopath.

Uh, notice how the title's called Making a Murderer but the original crime wasn't a murder? The documentary is about the potentially unsound nature of his conviction for murder, dude.

Does it tell you about how he doused his cat in gasoline and threw it into a bonfire?

Electric Boogaloo was pretty fun. Your standard rise and fall story about Cannon Films, an 80s movie shlockhouse responsible for Delta Force, The American Ninja, a bunch of Death Wish sequels, and roughly 55% of all breasts in films from that decade.

The american ninja is a great movie will have to watch this.

Watched this BBC documentary called HyperNormalisation that tries to show that since the 1970s, governments, financiers, and technological utopians have given up on the complex "real world" and built a simple "fake world" that is run by corporations and kept stable by politicians. It shows how Trump recreated New York while also showing how different Syria was during this time and how the US and the Middle East both developed differently in creating their own fake worlds during the same while comparing it to the state of the USSR before it fell. It paints a bad picture for Henry Kissinger in how he helped the US muck around with Syria in the 1970s. The term "hypernormalisation" is taken from Alexei Yurchak's 2006 book Everything was Forever, Until it was No More: The Last Soviet Generation, about the paradoxes of life in the Soviet Union during the 20 years before it collapsed. It's pretty confusing and it goes over alot of material for 3 hours.

He’s an interesting guy and there’s a lot of intrigue as to where he’s from and where he got his money.

Greg Sestero talks about it in the book. He might of got alot of inheritance from an Aunt or he might of had a strong work ethic to amass the money. There a story in the book on how he used to run a street car shop/kiosk that sold European bird toys and there was this Italian(I think) restaurant near it. His little shop was so popular he could afford an apartment somewhere nice. He tried to use the bathroom of the restaurant one day and got kicked out because he wasn't a paying customer so he tried to apply for a job there. They denied him and each week Tommy would come back and try to get a job there. Then one day the restaurant was busy and they lost a busboy, they went over to Tommy and told him he can have a job but he had to start right now and he did. When he wasn't cleaning tables he was selling his toys outside.

There's also another part where they shot outdoor shots around a building for footage for The Room and its implied Tommy is talking to the guy who runs the place saying "We can talk about the rent later" for letting them shoot there. Greg Sestero had seen the building before in some ad or video Tommy had shot I think for a jean commerical of some knockoff jeans that were being sold.

The book is a good read and you would prob learn more than some documentary or the movie is going to show you.

I found that you can find alot of cheaply made documentaries on youtube so I have been unhealthily bingeing the most ludicrous documentaries that the sidebar can recommend.

From the makers of Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, find it somewhere.

I'm surprised there's no Making a Murderer thread. I pretty much binged the new season, could not stop!

I've been following it since the first season so almost everything in the second season I already knew about so it was less compelling for me. I have watched the first season a bunch of times and really don't see why Avery would even want to murder anyone.

I also drew this picture a long time ago,

It's when Stephen Avery opens the door to his trailer to let Brendan come in to help with the rape and murder and how ludicrous the story is.

The reddit used to be even more toxic with the most annoying posts ever made. They have slightly cleaned up the name calling and hid the subreddits that are pro a side now. There was a thread in the tv forum for awhile after the first season.


Holy poo poo I reply to things so late. So I guess I'll give a little update on whats new for the story. Kathleen Zellner asked the court if they could test all the bones to see if they belong to the same person and other things. Then she found out from police reports that they had already given all the bones that they found behind Stephen Avery's trailer and in the quarry and maybe some other places, back to the Halbach's family to bury. And that by giving the bones back to Halbach's family, the state implicitly admitted that they were human and belong to Halbach. Then she reported to the court that they had violated Avery's due process rights by violating Wisconsin's law on the preservation of biological evidence. I think her goal is to prove that all the bones belong to Teresa and poke holes in the story by the state that everything happened at trailer with the proof of two burn locations.

In Steven Avery news, they are going to go ahead to test the bones that are buried so either you might hear about how the state had to defile the murdered tomb to prove Steven Avery guilty or Steven Avery getting set free because the State is a vile and evil thing.

I'm sure either outcome will be great to hear about.
