I saw this movie about a year ago, and I am glad I went to see it. I thought the movie was very entertaining, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I went to the theater expecting to hear "and". I was surprised to find out that it actually was a very good movie, as it made me think about evolution and that is something I truly enjoy. I think that is a movie that I can recommend to anyone who is interested in the subject of evolution, and I thought that I would be in for a good laugh. I think it was very well done, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good laugh. It is a movie that I will enjoy watching over and over again.

Science Guy was one of my favorite movies as a kid, so I couldn't resist a chance to catch up with the guy. I had a bit of an issue with the movie, because I felt it was over-hyped, and only rated 6.7 at IMDb. Since it wasn't rated high on its own, I had a little more skepticism. Nevertheless, I went into this movie with a fair amount of skepticism, which worked out in the end. First of all, the movie was not called 'Science Guy'. It was simply named 'Fahrenheit 9/11' and 'Climate Change'. These movies are related in a very, very basic, and non-specific way. When I came out of the theater, I actually said to myself, "I can see where this movie is aimed." There were a few snags, but I was definitely rewarded with a good one. The movie is very informative, and extremely well done. It is always fun to see the guy behind the movie who is actually a scientist himself. He basically did a good job, and the audience I was with was very impressed with his performance. As a skeptic myself, I did find a few things a little ridiculous, such as global warming's supposed connection with weather, but overall, it was a very good movie. My only complaints were that it was a bit long, and the conclusion was a little lacking. Overall, I gave this movie an 8.5/10.

We all know that science and reality are two different things, and that isn't to say that 'discovery' is the same as 'truth' and 'discovery' is the same as 'science'. In a sense, all science is just a series of theories, experiments, observations, theories, and the new laws and theories that are being tested. So, to say that it all just boils down to 'understanding' the law of gravity would be more like saying that all science is about pushing ideas out of your head as quickly as possible. I guess one could argue that this could explain how a non-scientist like me found the movie quite intriguing. The movie is filled with lots of visuals, data, diagrams, diagrams. It has all sorts of data, all kinds of diagrams, and lots of information, too. It also does not explain everything in terms of physics. It does not try to. It just makes a point. The movie is about reality. It's about understanding something. And it's about taking an opportunity to be creative and questioning the current beliefs of society. Which is why the movie is one of my favourite documentaries.

I first heard of the film "Science Guy" when I was about 10 years old, which means I was probably 10 to 20 years away from ever hearing of it. Even at that, I recognized the cast, director, and all the marketing that went with it. I remember being entranced by it. To this day, I can still recall the amazing title and the great ideas it presented. These days, I try to make an effort to watch anything that comes to my attention, but the chances of me seeing it again are minimal. In this regard, it is almost a blessing in disguise. I recently saw it again, and re-watched some of the older interviews that were included. I found the original version a little better than the 2003 re-edited version, but didn't feel it really made up for the differences. However, I really loved the 2003 version. It is my favorite version of the film. The original is so polished, so compelling. It has the perfect timing, the perfect angles, and the perfect feelings. It's the best of all versions of the film, but there are some things that really separate it from its source material. The original version has the potential to be even better than the 2003 version, but they were, in my opinion, not there yet. It would have been nice if the 2003 version had been stronger and stronger, but it still holds up very well. I still find it one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.

Picking topics from the world of science and answering all their questions. Think of this as a way to learn about the World of Science. If you want a deeper understanding of science and want to know more about all of its disciplines and life forms then you will enjoy this film. What is best about this film is the fact that it is the easiest way to learn about the world of science. There is no effort needed to sit down and listen to the film and watch the interview clips from all the major personalities of the field. It's the answers to all of the questions that make this so easy to understand. For example, if you want to learn more about a disease that is considered a very important part of the human experience and whose cause you may never understand why this disease exists. It's easy to see the reasons why it exists and if you want to learn more about it you have everything you need to know. When it comes to the fundamental questions that most of us are curious about, it's a bit more complicated. We want to understand why some of the world's great and historic discoveries are so important. We want to know why people think so highly of a discovery because it changed the world. It's a bit more complex to understand, and most of us just want to understand the why. If you want to get some answers to the questions that people ask then this is a film you will enjoy watching. I think the biggest question that everyone can ask themselves is "Why is the world so big and complicated?" And the answer is there in the film. It's the answers to all of the questions that I had and that most of us want to know more about. The answers to these questions are extremely interesting, and it's a film that should be watched.

After reading reviews for this documentary that I cannot imagine anyone liking it, I thought to myself, "if that's the case, I'd rather watch a documentary about ISIS than this boring piece of garbage." I can see that some people found this documentary quite enjoyable, and while I'm sure there are some viewers that found this documentary quite enjoyable, I personally didn't enjoy this documentary at all. However, I've found that a lot of people are either so anti-science, or they believe that things that are wrong with the world must be scientifically correct. I'm not saying that I'm anti-science, I'm just saying that a lot of people seem to have an unfounded belief in that they should be able to disprove any sort of truth. While many of the things that are wrong with the world are not really wrong, for example, science is in fact changing the definition of many things, such as the theory of evolution. Also, for me, this documentary was just boring. There were a lot of good points made in the documentary that made me appreciate the overall message, but it just wasn't enough to make me really appreciate the documentary. In my opinion, this documentary would've been better if it had not been the documentary.

It's not often that a movie features both a gifted scientist and a caring father and it was refreshing to see such a movie. This movie will certainly blow your mind. The first half is filled with facts and common sense. The second half is also filled with facts and common sense. The narration is simply outstanding and the sound quality is superb. I just hope that more documentaries are made such as this. You will not be disappointed if you are a believer of evolution.

I was surprised at the quality of the movie. It was really well thought out and the talking parts were fairly good. I liked the fact that there was a diversity of opinions represented in the community and I liked the way they presented the issues. The movie did a good job in conveying the fact that many of these people are doing what they do because they feel their life would be better if they were not doing it. This movie is excellent because it really helps us understand the community of these people and how they have been victimized by the powerful corporations that want to dictate the laws in our lives. Overall I found it a decent documentary and thought it would be better than average.

I'm not sure if this film has really received much notice by most scientists, who probably just really like the old Cretaceous Science Guy who talked about evolution, but if not, it should. I was a big fan of Cretaceous Science Guy when I was growing up, as the man I watched movies with. This is an excellent movie, and I really enjoyed it. It's filled with fascinating anecdotes, and the stories that they tell are interesting, and I think all the science videos should have that kind of storytelling. What really surprised me was the structure of the film, as they started with a sort of summary of the basics of science, and then showed a film about the people who had a field in science, and then continued to the more interesting parts of the film, which was all about Cretaceous Science Guy. It's a very thorough presentation of the subject, and I think it does a very good job at that. The filmmakers do a great job of telling the story of how Cretaceous Science Guy got to this point, and they show a variety of sides of the man. He was an advocate, he was an honest scientist, he was a journalist, he was a provocateur. He was also one of the biggest stars of his time. It was good to see that he was truly an entertainer, and that he never stopped working to get more attention for himself and his films. I think it was great to see that he didn't always believe in the evidence he presented, but he always pushed for more evidence and better arguments for the cause of science. One of the other things that really impressed me was that they put together a very interesting and colorful cast of people who were involved in the creation of the dinosaurs. We get an overview of some of the more famous scientists involved in the creation of the dinosaurs, but not a lot of background information about them. I also think that they should have mentioned that Cretaceous Science Guy was a scientist and had been a professor for quite a long time. He actually had quite a solid research background, and I think that was very important for making this movie. Overall, it's an excellent film, and I would recommend it to anyone who is a science enthusiast. They also have a great new documentary about paleontology that I haven't seen that well done, so it's a really good watch if you haven't already seen that. I would like to see it, but unfortunately I haven't seen it yet. 7/10

In my opinion, there is no one more qualified to comment on the science in this movie. What it shows is all done scientifically and does not mince words. So if you are expecting a silly movie, this is not it. However, if you have any level of interest in science, you should check this out. I'm giving it 7 because the movie is entertaining enough and the message is clear. Not that I think it is an evil message, it is merely the reality of the way the world works.

For me this film had many faults. While the film was pretty clear in its message, it still had some flaws. For example, the fact that the earth is billions of years old was never explained in any way. It was never even said that the earth is billions of years old. Even a simple question like that might have led to the correct answer, but it never was. This is something that really would have been very important for the viewer to know. The first thing that bothered me was that the only actual explanation was that the sun has been on earth for about 400 years. At that time, the earth was not very old and most of the solar energy that it took to keep it warm had already been absorbed by the earth. While this may have been a valid explanation, it was not an interesting one. If the earth was millions of years old, it would have taken much longer for the sun to absorb the energy that was being absorbed by the earth. Also, we do not need to see a tree growing for three million years to produce a tree that produces fruit in the future. All that we really need is a tree growing in a few hundred years. To me, this was just one more issue with the film. My final problem was with the lighting in the film. The production staff should have used natural lighting to portray the process of evolution. Natural lighting is not only more natural, it is more beautiful and gives the viewer an improved view of the evolution of life. Natural lighting is also one of the best ways of expressing evolution as well as the science of evolution. The lighting in the film was simply not natural. My final problem was that it was far too "science" and too "Christian" at the same time. My personal preference is that the word "evolution" be removed from the title of the film. That way the viewer would be more apt to believe that what the film was saying was true. The word "evolution" simply used to cover all of evolution would have been sufficient for this film to be a success. Instead, the word "evolution" was used too much to cover all of evolution. This decision was not good for the science and the Christian message of the film. I believe that the title of the film should be "Why I Am An Evolutionist."

I never wanted to see this documentary, but I was forced to see it because of a friend's and family. I love Roddy Piper and have been a huge fan of his for years. I saw this documentary about 2 weeks ago and I'm now quite impressed with it. Roddy is really funny and entertaining in this documentary. I can't say much without revealing some of the subjects of the film. However, the story is all true, I didn't find any faults. I would love to see it again, but it's a rare treat for me to see it again.

This is a great documentary on how Nye the scientist addresses our most pressing problems of the day. He explains that if you want to do something that is right, that makes you feel good, and that makes people feel good, it's up to you. There is no wrong or right, in fact you don't have to be an atheist or a believer in any religion to be able to do this. It's just about being honest with yourself. It's not about "suppressing" something that you believe in or if you feel so strongly about something that you would want to "blink" (or say out loud). It's simply a matter of being honest with yourself, having some basic science, and being a good person, being nice to people, and listening to other people, and trying to help everyone, no matter what religious background you are from. And that's the great thing about it. Just the facts, simple as that. You can read this, or maybe it's already on your brain, but it's there for you to see. And just by taking the time to think about it, or asking yourself questions, it will help you, not hurt you. I'm a huge fan of Nye's work, and I thought this was a great movie to watch. It's one of those documentaries that you watch, and say to yourself, "I wonder if I could do that?" If you are looking for a scientific debate, then it won't do you any good to watch this. The only "debate" you will see is on what people want you to believe or not believe, and you can't find out what Nye believes based on this documentary. It's not going to take you away from what you believe to be true. Just watch it, and learn a little bit. Do it with an open mind. Maybe that's what you need.

I must admit I haven't seen the original, and as such, my review is going to be a bit biased. The original didn't exactly have a well thought out message, but it was a very well made film that moved the story forward. Although this version has its fair share of preachy and preachy preaching, it is still a very good movie. I don't know what the new poster says about the message of this film, but it is certainly not a film that would be appropriate for younger children. This film is a satire of the environmental movement, a film that should be watched by those who can appreciate a little black comedy. It is a fun film that anyone can watch without feeling like they are being forced to by the message. This film is a little subversive, but it is done in such a funny and well thought out manner, that it is impossible to criticize it for being wrong. It is actually rather funny how the script writers never mention the current environmental movement, and only use a reference to a recent event. Instead, the film is about the environment, and even if it doesn't have the correct message, it still has the appropriate comedy to keep the viewer entertained. Overall, this film is a funny, but just as importantly, very thoughtful film that is worth watching. It is definitely worth watching, and is definitely worth a second viewing. A sequel to this film is inevitable, and one can only hope that the current environmental movement is one that people will be able to appreciate, and not just be forced to watch a parody of it. 7.7/10

I have to admit I haven't watched a documentary in quite some time. What i mean is that this movie has set the standard for movies on PBS. The documentary is not too long and it really touches the audience, it's got a really good perspective on what is happening in the world today. When I watched it I didn't really care about what was going to happen and that's the way I like documentaries. I really liked it because it is so open and the views from the different sides of the question are clear. The science of climate change is a tough subject and there are many voices for both sides and there is a big difference in opinion between scientists and environmentalists. The reason I like this documentary so much is that it was not just some voices against something and a scientist saying something. The documentary is not so scientific, it really shows the arguments from the different sides. I really think that this is an amazing and well made documentary and I hope that more documentaries like it are coming out of PBS.

Nye talks about how the Internet has changed things for him, and how he has watched people create "the magic", and how he believes that change is inevitable, and just like that, he talks about how he feels that he has had a change in his life. I must say that I liked this one, but I am not really impressed by Nye's talk, I think he was a little over-dramatic at times, and I felt like he was just doing this because he felt that he had to, but I'm not sure he was really trying to make this movie interesting. Nye is one of the people who is most famous for being the first guy to say it's OK to lie if you're lying about something. In this movie he says that he has watched people create the "magic" and thinks that it's about time that change happens and he does not think that it's going to happen any time soon. It seems to me that Nye is saying that he's changed as a person, and he has changed his life, but I don't think he believes that his lifestyle has changed, and I do not really think that he wants change. I think that he's just watching movies, and he is not really thinking about anything else. This film is supposed to be a "comedy" film, but it is very dull, and it does not really do anything for me, and I'm not really sure what I feel I got out of it. I would probably enjoy it if I didn't know that it was made by Nye.

I have just come from seeing the special event entitled "Science Guy", hosted by the great Phil Plait. And the opening remarks by the Science Guy is an interesting glimpse into the everyday life of a self-professed science geek. Phil is as fresh and opinionated as they come, and his opening remarks are filled with delightful, intelligent humor and ideas. The topics discussed in the film were interesting and seemed to be relevant to the audience. My suggestion is that if you are into any of the subjects mentioned, this is an excellent documentary that you should watch. The only downside to this documentary is the length of it. It is 2 hours, but for me, it felt like a really long hour and a half. The time went by really quickly. Overall, I thought this was an interesting documentary that is worth watching.

I enjoyed the film, I like that there are some interesting scientists who present scientific problems to the public, for example Paul Nurse who told his scientific story of his attempt to cross Antarctica with a sled and he did it in 50 hours. There are lots of famous people who talk about the various problems facing their profession. Some of them are honest and non-biased while some are trying to save their reputation. Many of them go on about the problems facing their field while others are more embarrassed by them. While all the scientists in the film are trying to provide a balanced view they all have something different in mind. Some of them are on the same side as Nye and are happy to be promoting his view while others are just concerned about their own image and some are just trying to save their own lives. Some of them are trying to convince others of their point of view while some are just presenting their own views. The atmosphere of the film is rather low-key with a few claps and lots of happy faces but if you like documentaries you will enjoy this one.

To be honest I haven't seen any of the previous Nye's works and found this one of his most enjoyable ones. Nye goes way beyond his original idea to say something about the process of how science and religion interact. He does an excellent job of showing us how our government is failing in order to get the most out of science, and how when it comes to the church and God, our freedoms are more important. It's really a fascinating look into how and why science can be abused. Nye is certainly not the only one trying to correct what is wrong with the government of our country. He doesn't have a lot of resources and is not even an engineer, so it's hard to say for sure if his statements are accurate. But if you're an atheist, this is a must see. It's a must see for any and all that have an interest in science. It's a good film and highly recommended.

Wow, a movie about the silliness and stupidity of science. It is so funny to see these dumb scientists try to create and create. This is the essence of comedy. It reminds me of the movies "Is It Safe" and "Finding Nemo". I'm still trying to figure out why a scientist would not like this film. Maybe they think it is funny, or it is that they don't know the science. Maybe they didn't want to be open minded when making this film. Maybe they want to get a rise out of the audience with the dumbest jokes they can. In my opinion, if you want to see the science of the subject, don't watch this movie. If you want to see the silliness of the subject, you need to watch this movie.
