UFO - Secrets of WWII German Flying Saucers (1991)

Director: Christopher McIlrath

Writer: Mario Pranther

Composer: Visions of a Nomad

Starring: ???

More info: IMDb

Tagline: ???

Plot: A documentary which delves into alternative theories of UFOs, specifically supposed development of similar crafts under the Third Reich.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again?  Nope.

I'm not buying what this guy's selling at all.  Showing a bunch of blurry photos doesn't prove anything.  They could easily have been doctored with some kind of Nazi Photoshop.  That's just one part of what's wrong with this.  Everything shown and said is meant to be taken at the film makers' word so you'll either believe it or be skeptical about it.  The narrator talks in detail about the Nazis making anti gravity engines and all kinds of otherworldly crafts (and succeeding, too) as well as the secret Nazi UFO bases in the Antarctic.  I'm skeptical of the whole thing and I'm willing to bet that most of this is just a load of horseshit that's been passed around and talked about so much that people started to believe it.  It doesn't help that the quality of this film is in the ballpark of VHS and it's a dull film even if they do a nice job of compiling a massive amount of pictures of documents and UFOs.  Plus the music is mixed loudly, making it difficult to sometimes understand what the narrator is saying.  It really requires to you pay attention.  The music is at times too busy to be used under talking anyway.  I must admit that I did find some of the tracks quite good and I wouldn't mind hearing them just as music and away from this film.  I couldn't find out much about this film.  Only part of it is the above YouTube video.
