If you’ve got 15 spare minutes and want to feel like a health nut even though your hands are covered in Cheetoh dust, I suggest you watch this Vice documentary on a 38 year-old man who doesn’t eat anything but cheese pizza with extra sauce all day long. Extra sauce? What sort of picky eater are you?

It warrants mentioning that if you’re looking for a chuckle and an opportunity to mock the guy for having the dining habits of a four-year old, you might want to pass. He’s got diabetes and denies that it’s caused by his eating habits, even though that he admits that diabetes would be worth it. Kind of a bummer, actually.

Anyway, if you wanted a kick in the ass to get a bowl of quinoa for lunch instead of a French dip, this is probably it.

This trailer for the documentary Armadillo shows us that serving in Afghanistan isn’t all hanging out and reenacting the volleyball scene from Top Gun. Though there does seem to be a fair share of that. This is being positioned as the premier documentary about the current conflict in the Middle East due to the unprecedented access the filmmakers had to their subjects. So, if you ever wanted to experience what it was like to be shot at (without having to travel to Detroit), this is the documentary for you.

Two Irish Families Beat Each Other Senseless In New HBO Project http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/two-irish-families-beat-each-other-senseless-in-new-hbo-project/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/two-irish-families-beat-each-other-senseless-in-new-hbo-project/#comments Tue, 25 Jan 2011 06:54:09 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=21995 It sounds like the unholy child of 'Step By Step' and 'Fight Club.'

The post Two Irish Families Beat Each Other Senseless In New HBO Project appeared first on Screen Junkies.

A documentary called Knuckle screened this weekend at Sundance, about two Irish families with a longstanding rivalry who mercilessly beat each other up in the name of family honor. Okay, now I officially wish I was at Sundance.

HBO was super impressed with first time director Ian Palmer’s buzzed-about documentary, which sounds like the unholy child of Step By Step and Fight Club. They purchased the remake rights to turn the documentary into… a series? Danny McBride‘s Rough House Pictures is attached, which sounds promising.

Apparently, we don’t learn why exactly the families hate each other, but hate each other they do. They even send taunt videos back and forth, like in the WWE, only there’s no need for bad acting because it’s all real. Well, I’m not waiting for the remake. I don’t care whose ass I have to kick to get a screener, I will see this awesome sounding movie. (Deadline)

‘Catfish’ Directors Defend Against Accusations of Fakery http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/catfish-directors-defend-against-accusations-of-fakery/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/catfish-directors-defend-against-accusations-of-fakery/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The new film Catfish wants to get people talking, but maybe not in the way it has. Since its premiere at Sundance, the film has made an impact on viewers. It begins with NY photographer Yaniv Schulman starting a Facebook relationship with a Midwestern family, then goes to a dark place. Some people are calling bullsh*t on filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost. They’re sticking to their story though. “This question of whether the film is real or not never occurred to us while we were editing because why would you ever suspect that people would be suspicious of something that actually happened to you,” Joost said at a roundtable in Los Angeles today. “But when we started showing it at Sundance, that’s when we started getting questions from the audience. When we were making the film, there were many times when we thought wow, this is too good to be true in a lot of ways, or I can’t believe that just happened the way that it did or that we captured that in the way that we did, but it really happened. That’s the truth.” More after the jump...

The new film Catfish wants to get people talking, but maybe not in the way it has. Since its premiere at Sundance, the film has made an impact on viewers. It begins with NY photographer Yaniv Schulman starting a Facebook relationship with a Midwestern family, then goes to a dark place. Some people are calling bullsh*t on filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost. They’re sticking to their story though.

“This question of whether the film is real or not never occurred to us while we were editing because why would you ever suspect that people would be suspicious of something that actually happened to you,” Joost said at a roundtable in Los Angeles today. “But when we started showing it at Sundance, that’s when we started getting questions from the audience. When we were making the film, there were many times when we thought wow, this is too good to be true in a lot of ways, or I can’t believe that just happened the way that it did or that we captured that in the way that we did, but it really happened. That’s the truth.”

More after the jump…

Other viewers are angry that they’re being a sold a thriller. The title is mysterious, the tag line is “Don’t let anybody tell you what it is.” If you don’t get a massive shocker, that might be a cheap marketing ploy. The filmmakers stand behind Rogue’s campaign too.

“That is part of the movie,” Joost continued. “That’s I think the crux of the second act. What I like about it being marketed that way is just that it kind of has you looking in a different direction and expecting something and the film ends up being a lot more than that.”

So the film doesn’t end with the filmmakers disappearing under a bundle of sticks, but it’s got something to think about. If you take their word for it that all this Facebook mystery really happened, you can learn from their experience.

“I think it says that the internet and social networking is sort of a perfect distraction and fantasy for people to fill any empty space in their lives, whether it’s just to fill time and distract them from a real life situation that’s uncomfortable,” Ariel Schulman said. “A bad date or a boring dinner, just hop on your phone and you’re on the internet and you’re surrounded by 1000s of people. Or it can fill a much simpler void which is my life isn’t what I want it to be I am not who I want to be. Let me create a better self, at avatar. Bam, five minutes later you’re up and going.”

Suspicion comes with the territory. Certainly in a world where even Hollywood films use a documentary style, the filmmakers understand skepticism. “I think that there has been a trend for a while of the mockumentary and also the fake documentary which is kind of a different thing,” Joost said. “The Cloverfield and Blair Witch Project type thing and then even more recently, those commercials that are trying to look like YouTube viral videos where something totally crazy happens and a visual effects company manipulates it. So I think people are trained now to be suspicious about what they see and wonder what the motives are behind it.”

Catfish opens September 17.

The first clip is a featurette that gives us a glimpse of just how huge this concert tour was going to be and how meticulous the preparation had to be to pull it all off. 

The second clip is a string of shots showing how Jackson and his backup dancers put some of the choreography together. Not since… ever… has goose stepping been so cool.

Tonight, National Geographic Channel is airing an all-new documentary called "Hitler's Stealth Fighter."  Apparently in the final months of World War II, American troops discovered a top-secret facility in Germany with an advanced, jet-propelled aircraft like no one had ever seen before.  It was called "The Horten Ho 229." It was shaped like a massive bat wing... like something out of Star Wars.  But its wooden body was most definitely man-made.  So what did Uncle Sam's army do with it?  Well, they brought back to the United States to be studied, of course.  And everything that they learned about the Third Reich's mystery plane stayed a mystery… until now. Screen Junkies had a chance to check out an advance screener of the doc, and it's definitely worth watching.  Aside from showing you this prototype of airborne insidiousness inside and out, it also makes you think about what might have happened had Hitler and the Nazis gotten their plane manufactured en masse and into the skies.  It's some scary scheisse.
