Science Friction versus Science Fiction. Distinguishing Doubtful Facts from Fantasy.

22 May

Watch Science Friction | Prime VideoScience Friction is an excellent documentary that examines if that favourite network program on History, Travel Channel or A&E is getting their facts right. Skeptoid Media wants to debunk more than just the supernatural. This work targets all those other specials about archaeology, geology and zoology. Programs like Ancient Aliens and Ghost Adventures are their least of their worries.

Those scholars who’ve appeared in these specials say a lot of what they have expressed is taken out of context. Dr. David S. Anderson, Jonathan Davis, and Dr. Ken Feder are misrepresented. They make up a third of the people interviewed to expound what these shows have gotten wrong. It’s easy for viewers to fact check themselves, but these days, not even Google is safe, unless the information presented is annotated and given a bibliography. In this piece’s case, it’s to have a website to list the credentials of the people they’ve interviewed.

The Ariel Phenomenon. Was it a Hoax or Something Else?

20 May

The Ariel Phenomenon PosterNot everyone knows of the UFO landing that occurred in 1994 within the Jewel of Africa, and not even the local military took immediate notice. By the time they were informed and arrived at the scene, the aliens were gone. But the Ariel Phenomenon—named after the school–is a concern.

Many kids (over 60 of them) were affected in some level, and 28 years later, most have tried to move on. But the images haunted them; they were traumatised. As adults, these individuals still don’t understand what happened. Filmmaker Randall Nickerson tracked down a few of those eye-witnesses willing to recount that meeting in Zimbabwe, and it’s their journey that he chronicles about how they are coping. 

One aspect of the production that I liked is that it’s not filled with recreations. Another aspect is that it looks at what goes in on other parts of the world. It’d be arrogant to think activity only happens in certain countries. The USA, Peru and Mexico always tops the lists, but we rarely hear about UAPs in Africa. In what this filmmaker focuses on are these people coming to terms with what they experienced. His approach to let them talk about what happened is like therapy, and we can follow along to figure out all that they’ve gone through.

The Search for the Profound with Caroline Cory’s Tear in the Sky, An Interview

18 May

Caroline Cory

Caroline Cory’s interest in parapsychology has always been constant while growing up, and to see her enthusiasm is key to why her documentaries must be watched. We see her wanting to learn more about what it all means. Whether that’s with testing people for their PSI ability in Superhuman or simply examining this mysterious world in works from her own production company, Omnium Media. there’s something to think about. Her latest, Tear in the Sky, concerns the strange aircraft known as Tic Tac UFOS often seen around Catalina Island.

She got to talk to the various members of the crew from the USS Nimitz since they were near, and to focus on this particular incident may well get the federal government to open up.

“They were on those ships in 2004,” said Cory, “And we had a huge amount of equipment, some even military-grade, to observe in real time. We got crazy stuff–amazing anomalies. My film takes a totally different approach to ufology.”

The federal reports have not made a full disclosure. There’s people from Avalon, a township on that island, and It’s not just them wanting answers about the fairy lights. Others who live or are stationed nearby are curious.

It’s a phenomenon everyone wants further understanding on. Everyone is asking how do they fly? The way they skirt the sky can’t be done based on humanity’s current understanding of physics. A less asked question is why is this area so special? Cory believes the aliens have their agenda and are doing their thing without too much concern about a “Prime Directive,” a concept well known amongst Star Trek fans. It’s not necessary about space tourism either, but rather in what they find fascinating. Parts of Catalina Island have a military history and it may well play a role to why alien ships are often spotted here.

Look Up! Is That “A Tear in the Sky?”

2 May

A Tear in the Sky (2022) - IMDbComing to Amazon Prime Video

The Navy often encounters Unidentified Aerial Phenomena and whether they cause A Tear in the Sky depends on who you ask. But as for what powers these UFOs, nobody knows. This latest documentary tries to figure out if they are using wormholes, micro black holes, cold fusion, or some unknown technology to travel about. What this work hosted by Caroline Cory tries to discover is if energy can be observed/detected using current Earth technology.

Whatever kind of propulsion is used, it’s bound to be light years ahead of what NASA and private enterprises are trying to craft. I believe it’s cold fusion after I finished watching. Michio Kaku, even leans towards it too, and I’ll gladly watch anything this physicist appears in!

It’s Better to Stay Behind than Escape From Area 51 …

Escape from Area 51 (2021) - IMDbBy Ed Sum
(The Vintage Tempest)

Cleopatra Entertainment

Available on VOD 

Home Video & Soundtrack Release
Sept 7th (Amazon link)

Not every movie about UFOs deals with conspiracies. The sci-fi stoner comedy Escape From Area 51 momentarily plays with the storm Area 51 movement–which was what caught my attention–before dealing with the plot at hand. This movie’s story pairs well with Shae Sterling’s Alien Addiction for its low brow humour. I’m certain there is no family connection with David Sterling, the producer behind this work. It’s doubtful that director Eric Mittleman, who also co-wrote with Ted Chalmers, Carlos Perez and Robert Rhine, even knows of the New Zealand made film.

Curiosity seekers may well be hard pressed to find something to like about this work. It’s basically a T&A schlocky feature with a lot of sexual innuendo that will get fans of Donna D’Errico (Baywatch) giggling. She plays the alien who was locked up at the facility and when she makes the mistake of using her alien tech; it draws Sklarr’s attention (Chris Browning, Sons of Anarchy). He’s been scouring the galaxy because there was a War of the Worlds between their civilizations in the past… Well, maybe; I had to make this joke somehow.
