Beyond the Mat (1999) – Review

Described as a heartfelt documentary focused on the day-to-day lives of professional wrestlers, this explores a bizarre sporting world to some, but a much loved one to others. The film follows athletes such as Terry Funk, Jake Roberts, Darren Drozdov and even Mick Foley on their quest of doing what they love – traveling on the road, entertaining the fans and putting their bodies on the line. This emotional documentary dates back to 199 and is something most wrestling fans will have already seen since its release over twenty years ago. Beyond the Mat is currently streaming on Netflix.

Apollo 11 (2019) – Review

An unbelievable look at the American led Apollo 11 space mission that landed successfully on the moon and returned to earth in 1969.

The film manages to capture the events spanning all the way from the initial launch preparation to shortly after the safe competition and touchdown back on earth. A truly spectacular documentary based on, at the time, the most dangerous space mission of its kind.
