Most people aren’t enamored with the concept of documentaries. The premise of spending 1-2 hours watching a program under the guise of educational exploration is lost on those who’d rather have their entertainment be anything but. It’s true, there is a time for learning and there is a time for entertainment. A good documentary, however, does both. A good documentary will hook you with a prospective topic – something you’re mildly curious about or something you never knew you’d be interested in – and takes you on an enlightening journey that expands your mind, all whilst leaving you feel entertained. No one truly likes spending time learning stuff, but everyone does like feeling like the smartest guy/girl in the room. A good documentary leaves you feeling smarter and more informed, with the least amount of effort from you as possible.
The following entries make up some of the best, fascinating, and nerd approved documentaries that you can watch right now on Netflix. So sit back, relax, and be prepared to learn some shit via your Television or streaming mobile device. (more…)
I don’t know about you guys, but I like to think of myself as a voice actor aficionado. I’m sure this is due to me watching cartoons for my entire life. Even now, as an “adult”, you’re more likely to catch me watching something animated over live-action. I’ve become really good at spotting a voice actor when I’m watching something and I just KNOW I’ve heard that voice before. Then again, there are some actors whose range is so amazing you wouldn’t believe the variety of voices that come out of their mouths. If you’re like me and seriously dig voice actors and the incredible work they do then have I got a documentary for you.
I Know That Voice is a doc about professional voice acting and it allows us to put a face to those voices we all love. Notable actors in the flick? Billy West, Kevin Conroy, Tara Strong, David Kaye, John Di Maggio, Tom Kenny, June Foray and tons more. Or as you might know them Fry, Batman, Bubbles, Megatron, Bender, Sponge Bob and Rocky the flying squirrel. Check out the trailer,
I think this documentary sounds fascinating, again it could because I’m something of a voice work nutjob, but come on, if I can’t let my nerd flag fly here, where can I? IMDB lists I Know That Voice as releasing in 2013 so hopefully more info will be available soon.
What do you guys think of it? Who are some your favorite voice actors?
