King of Kong was the one I most recently saw and I loved it. It's a bunch of hardcore folks trying to get the highest Donkey Kong score ever, dammit I'm going to watch it now.

Well, I like documentaries that has to do with military and/or archaeology...I'm not sure if they're your cup of tea.

BUT...

I'm thinking about making a documentary about a social gaming website called N4G.  I don't you've ever heard of it, but, it's like Digg, except it talks about games.  You see, that site has some wonderful nutjobs like Nasim, Macalatus, Bloodmask, Jon Smackenrow, a guy named Bill Gates (not the MS dude), and many more.

You can check this website with this link:

Ahh yes, I loved that movie I knew it won from having Wesley Willis as the opening song. My favorite all time documentary though is Dave Chappelle's Block Party.

Out of the blue is probably the best UFO documentary i've seen, they also did a press club event which is worth watching, they're also making a new documentary now that's coming out soon called Beyond the Blue, it'll be in HD too!

King of Kong was a good gamer doc to watch, but my favorite documentary thus far has to be Ken Burns "Jazz". Really fantastic.

freaking documentary betrayed me the other night, broke the promise of television. Granted, it was late and totally garbage tv, I got hooked on this show about the 750 lb man, and it's all about him getting on track, losing weight, checked into a support facility....THEN HE DIES. wth. It's freaking 10 p.m. on cable, dude is supposed to live. [sm=5FBF937852354BC6BEBDC3EF71F35203.gif]

It's hard to explain what it is about.  It's really a science documentary that talks about how humans are all connected and stuff.

Some history, religion, and animal documentarys are pretty good.  Too bad I don't know the exact names.  Planet Earth is a popular one, but it's really long.  Discovery channel had a long one about how humans evolved to be what we are today.  Also "Sicko" by Michael Moore is a good one.  Also the history channel had a good one about Nostradamus.  Also a controversial one is "The God who wasn't there".  It's a controversial because it questions Jesus existence.

The 30 days TV series by Morgan Spurlock was good.  Although I'd say it's more of a reality TV series.
