well, I will echo some of what was already mentioned...
The new age backdrop blue screen stuff was too much, it reminded me of:
Sharing production values with Heaven's Gate is never really a good idea!
It would have been more effective to me if he was behind a podium or sitting in a garden instead of flying around in the Torus-o-pod Navigator.
The first 30 minutes or so almost lost me as a viewer. Watch me take this Triangle and make it into the supershape! (here's what you can do, here's what you can do, something something something, with Spirograph
Thriving - Hasn't thriving always ebbed and flowed on the planet. I mean, Dinosaurs thrived, now they are gone. Aztecs thrived, now they are gone. Europe thrived, then the black plague and dark ages came.
I am in the crop circles are made by people mind of thought, the better of the makers do research and make amazing geometric patterns, but still made by people.
Ancient Aliens, while compelling to ponder, there is also ancient artwork of demons, monsters, etc... Plus, these ancients earthlings wore war headgear, ritual headgear, etc... so for them to draw images of headgear wearing, humanoid shapes is not far fetched.
Free energy machines - if ONE existed, it would make the creators, investors and people involved in it the richest people on the planet. "but the government took my machine!" - build another! build it in Russia or Brazil! Build it and become the richer than Bill Gates!
That said, I do believe that Oil and Car companies buy and kill off newly developed technologies, as well as that some shady stuff may have happened to the inventors.
When the movie turned to banks, money systems, etc... it really took a turn for the better in my opinion and started to hold my attention a lot more. Banks run the gov. Giant Corporations and Pharma/Drug companies are evil, yep, I agree with all of these things and this was presented well.
All the food items, all the leadership talk, yup, agreed. Bail outs of banks instead of people, outrageous, agreed! How we bought support for the Iraq wars, etc... It would seem though, that he is preaching to the choir as far as the audience who will watch this past/make it through the first 1/2 hour.
also, several times, the host said things like "In my scientific research", but no research was ever presented. He never tested his hypothesis, never designed an experiment to which observe, analyze and make sound conclusions. To me, that is scientific research. The way he used it, I could only assume that he was twisting "I researched a scientist" into 'In my scientific research".
All is all after the first 1/2 hour I was glad I watched. While nothing groundbreaking (to me anyway), it is important to have a reminder every so often of what the banks/gov/food and drug companies are doing, how they are doing it, etc... I really think this could appeal to a much larger market of viewers if the blue screen production values were reigned in. Also, it tried to cover too many specific items, I think it would have benefited without the super shapes and torus at the start.
