For those in the US, that's cheap. Here though.... eh.

I'm conflicted. I hope it's online streaming at least.
I have not seen the "docudrama", but from what I have read, especially comments from people where where actually involved in dealing with the accident, it is far more drama, than documentary, basically anti-Soviet propaganda.

Hollywood also produced The China Syndrome, but it is all fictitious.

It is interesting that there are documentaries about Three Mile Island, but no docudramas have been made. The Three Mile Island accident is probably the most serious accident in the US because it was the result of widespread, endemic management failure, more than any technical issues. It would be prime fodder for a docudrama. FYI

There is a documentary: Incident at Browns Ferry (1977). This movie is unrated and considerable pressure was applied to public Television stations not to air this movie. Again, it is a documentary, not a docudrama. Brown's Ferry NPP design had a single point of failure that nearly lead to a catastrophic melt down of two reactors. It seems that since the Chernobyl docudrama, many pictures of the Browns Ferry NPP fire have been removed from the internet, including from wikipedia....Here are some pictures of the burnt out cable ways that had carried the control signals to the reactors. Even Metal Conduits where burned through by the intense fire. It was a heroic effort to control the fire and the reactors with technicians entering the containment to manually operate valves!

For that show at least, it's worth it. I thought it was quite good.

@kiho: I know where you're coming from, but I feel the show portrayed just about everyone but some of the politicians in a positive life. I'm not saying there isn't corruption in other countries, but you have to admit Russia has always been the type to attempt to admit nothing and bury everything.
Which coincidence! I've started watching it last weekend. The first two episodes and I really like it. I've to say that radiactivity is a thing that fascinated me for a long time now. Bc of its invisible deadlyness I guess. So it's interesting to see what radiaoctivity does with the body. Chernobyl has only 5 episodes. Is it possible to quit it after a month? I would say give it a try.
Yeah, I'd sign up for their free trial, binge it, then quit.

The Soviet Union was initially quiet about the accident but very quickly became totally transparent and forthcoming about the accident. More so that any other country vis-a-vis a nuclear accident has up to that point. I refer you to the UK windscale disaster, which was covered up at the time for fear that the US would not continue joint nuclear weapons development. read more....
Watched Venom today.
Great movie.
Watched doom (the movie) recently.
Only made me more hyped to play doom vfr.
matrix revolution.

that movie's premise look ridiculous now...
without mr smith and tentacles fighting outside matrix, it would be a very contemplative, out of the world show.
I just watched the new trailer for the CATS movie and what the fuck.

what the fuck², well, it's 2 0 1 9.
I just saw it out of curiosity, if not I didn't even know it existed
I saw it mentioned somewhere...someplace earlier Thursday but it didn't register in my head as being real. Then I noticed it was on the Trending tab on YouTube, and I'm like, "Well I GOTTA check this out..." and...yep. The like to dislike ratio was pretty much what I expected.

The uncanny valley is highly prominent with this one. Too weird for me. Felt...wrong, somehow. XD
I looked it up.
I am mentally scarred for life now.
I watched Mr. Bean and Chicken Little with my cousins, it was on a whim, it was a little nostalgic, Chicken Little was the first movie I went to see in the movie theater on a school tour, and it was a long time since I saw both.
Apart from that, almost every day I wake up and access the Internet, a character gender or race or both was swapped unnecessarily, it's not as if I were to watch anyway, I lost interest in movies a long time I can't remember why, but doesn't mean I'll ever watch some movie again, I hope these "people" don't find a way to fucked up the animes/manga industry at least with these ideologies, currently one of the few hobbie that I have.
I read that the new 007 is gonna be a black lady. I figured that would happen sooner or later.

I've noticed that, in these reboots and remakes, they're always changing the race to black. I think that's pretty interesting myself.

They're completely ignoring all the Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, etc. actresses that could be doing just as good a job at re-imagining the role.

I know people claim it's not because studios are trying to be more PC and liberal, but it sure feels like pandering to me.
I personally do not see sense in it, I mean, they can create original series/character and put any person they want, I personally think that remake or not, if you have a source, should be more faithful possible, without putting politics in the middle, exchange consecrated characters only by ideological bias does not seem to be an good idea, I may be wrong but I doubt they'll profit as much as if they had done as close as possible to the source on which it was based, which leads me to believe that it is not so much for money, but worse, seem to be hiring by color or sex, if it were the opposite would be accused of "sexist " or "racism" and hundreds of other terms, without mentioning that if you exchange a woman for a man or a black for a white one will call you the terms above, for me it's hypocrisy.
Pacific rim has been added to netflix recently.
I love how the computer's voice has been voiced by GLaDOS.
They added Spiderman: Into the spiderverse to netflix.
Great movie.
