Guys Night In

Most of the time we’ll flip on a movie to relax and zone out for a bit. We’ll watch something with a sweet car chase or a sexy female lead to kill a couple of hours. There are occasions, however, when we want to learn something when we break out the popcorn. That said, it doesn’t mean the film has to be boring. These are 10 documentaries every guy should see.

1. Dogtown and Z Boys

For a history lesson on why the X Games could even exist, check out Dogtown and Z Boys. The film explores the California skating scene of the mid-70’s when it blew up. It’ll make you want to pick up a deck and hit some seaside surf town. Netflix DVD iTunes Amazon Instant

2. Hoop Dreams

Saying Hoop Dreams is about basketball is like saying Titanic is about a boat. This movie is so much bigger than a sport documentary, it is a behind the scenes look at the streets of Chicago in the early 90’s and how much a dream can really drive a man. Netflix DVD Netflix Instant iTunes Amazon Instant

3. Exit Through the Gift Shop

You can debate all you want whether this is a legit documentary or not, we’ll side with putting it on this list for the simple fact that it could be and it’s awesome. The attempt to get Banksy on camera turned into a more elaborate film than you could imagine. If you believe it. Netflix DVD Netflix Instant iTunes Amazon Instant

Ayrton Senna

4. Senna

Your palms are gonna sweat like you were actually driving an F1 race car while watching Senna. The life of Ayrton Senna, which is chronicled in the film, was crazy, exciting and, at all times, insanely fast. This documentary lets you experience what it was like to live like an absolute racing king on and off the track. Netflix DVD Netflix Instant iTunes Amazon Instant

5. Brother’s Keeper

The trailer for Brother’s Keeper doesn’t do it justice. Trust us. This documentary has all the makings of a great murder mystery movie, only it’s not scripted and acted out. Netflix DVD Netflix Instant iTunes Amazon Instant

6. The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters

Watching your friend play video games can be insanely boring. That is exactly what makes this movie so impressive. The King of Kong depicts the fight for high score supremacy in Donkey Kong back in the early 80’s. It’s as entertaining to watch as going to the arcade back in the day. Netflix DVD iTunes Amazon Instant

7. Jiro Dreams of Sushi

This is easily the best movie about raw fish ever made. Jiro Dreams of Sushi tells the story of the world’s greatest sushi chef – A little old man with a restaurant in the basement of an office building. It’s about care for your craft and always striving to get better. Netflix DVD Netflix Instant iTunes Amazon Instant

8. Murderball

Any sport that has the word “murder” in the title is legit. This look into the world of paraplegic rugby players is both eye-opening and exciting. Don’t think it’s just some inspirational story though, Murderball is chock-full of sex, anger and grittiness. Netflix DVD

9. Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap

“We wanted to hit everyone across the head with a sledgehammer.” That’s just one of the lines from a movie featuring some of the greatest rap lyricists ever. Something from Nothing is the ultimate story of hip hop. It traces the art to its roots and, with the help of legends like Run DMC, Snoop and others, gives viewers a sense of what it’s really all about. Netflix DVD iTunes Amazon Instant

10. Paradise Lost – The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills

If you’re looking for another murder mystery and want to seriously question the justice system after watching Brother’s Keeper, this should be your next stop. From the same filmmakers, Paradise Lost drops viewers right into the story of three murdered children and the kids found guilty for killing them. Netflix DVD

Halloween Treats


For all you fright finders and scare searchers here is a great way to spend your Halloween after you fill your stomach with government subsidized candy. This is a quality list of some of the scariest movies you've never scene... and now you will. I also have to add the Collector to the list and Funny Games purely on principle.

McIntosh McAire

McIntosh McAire
Nope, it's not a new low-calorie menu item from McDonalds — although they could probably stand to introduce such a thing. The McIntosh McAire ($TBA) is a standalone speaker system designed to let you enjoy your media wirelessly via AirPlay. The unit includes both Wi-Fi and Ethernet hookups, as well as a USB port for charging and an RCA input for non-AirPlay devices, but its the dual 4-inch woofers, 2-inch midranges, and .75-inch tweeters that are the star of the show, along with the unit's classic, premium looks.

Alien Bar

Alien Bar
We can certainly think of more pleasant places to have a drink, but if you like your beer dark and your aliens scary, make a visit to the HR Giger Museum Bar. Designed by Giger himself, the bar's space recalls an ancient castle, but is covered in the skeletal designs he made famous when creating the monster from Alien and its environment. Be sure to visit the museum — which houses the largest collection of the artist's work, from the early '60s through now — while you're there.

Grime Writer

There are plenty of great graffiti artists in the world, but how do we know that we ourselves are not magnificent. I have yet to really make my mark on society with my pen simply because of my fear of prosecution, but the new Grime Writer ($13) is here to get you into the game of street art without the fear of police. Simply filled with cleaning solution (probably bleach), you can turn any disgusting window, rock or sign into the next Banksy and even curse out brainwash... your choice.

ZEAL iON HD Camera Goggle

ZEAL iON HD Camera Goggle
     Why would you strap a heavy camera to your head when you can simply wear goggles instead? The ZEAL iON HD Camera Goggle ($400) puts an eight-megapixel sensor and a 170-degree wide angle lens right on your forehead, capturing 1080p video or full-quality stills from exactly where your looking, so you can not be your own tripod— and letting you review your shots via an in-goggle viewfinder. Even with all the hi-tech add-on's in these king of cool goggles they still work as great goggles, with a high-density, anti-fog infused Optimum lens, impact resistant frame, and dual strap adjustments.
