Feminists: What Were They Thinking?

This is a documentary about women who modeled for a photo book about feminists during the late 1970s.

Liked the interesting personal stories of these women! I think present day society would be very different without the feminist movement. Women might still be stuck at home being a housewife, earn less pay than men and have no legal means to abort their babies.

This is a documentary on how algorithms are essential to our modern life.

Liked the real life examples given by the narrator! Algorithms are useful for sorting things in order, matching things by preference and finding the shortest route over multiple places.

The story is about how the owner of an old theater gathered a group of wannabe singers to create a fantastic show.

Liked all the nice songs! Was surprised that Reese Witherspoon and Scarlett Johansson were behind the voices of Rosita and Ash as they sang really well!

This is a documentary of the 2012 Barkley Marathon which is a 100 mile trail race with a cut-off timing of 60 hours.

Liked the quirky organizer who created the race with inspiration from a prison break that lasted about 60 hours! The cuts on the racers' feet looked terrible!

Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru

This is a documentary about a professional speaker named Tony Robbins at his 2014 "Date With Destiny" seminar.

Liked the day by day account on the six day seminar which is filled with personal anecdotes! I was amazed by how he could ask the audience really deep questions about themselves to find out the root cause of their problems!
