There’s a sect of Ghostbusters fans who have been pretty nasty about the reboot of the 1984 classic that’s coming this summer. Not everyone who isn’t excited about the new movie is being vicious about it, but there’s certainly a very vocal, unnecessarily hateful group who are giving fans of Ivan Reitman‘s movie a bad name. Thankfully, a new documentary shows that they’re not all like that.
Ghostheads is a film that looks at Ghostbusters fandom around the world, shining a light on all the charity work by various chapters of fans who use their love of the iconic movie to bring some joy to children’s hospitals, struggling families and more. It looks a bit hammy, but also very touching. Plus, it features interviews with all the right Ghostbusters people, including Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and more.

Red Bull doesn’t only make energy drinks. The company also makes films, and mostly the kind of movies you’d expect Red Bull to make. Red Bull Media House will release their latest picture, Chasing Niagara, this summer. The documentary follows Rafael Ortiz as he plans to (illegally) kayak Niagara Falls.

The story chronicled in the new documentary The Lovers and the Despot sounds like a joke, which only makes the truth of it feel all the weirder and all the more horrifying. In 1978, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il abducted South Korean director Shin Sang-ok and actress Choi Eun-hee (who were estranged lovers) and forced them to help revitalize his struggling film industry. What followed was truly stranger than fiction and directors Ross Adam and Robert Cannan look to chronicle every beat of this incredible tale in The Lovers and the Despot. You can get a sample of what to expect in the newly arrived trailer.

Even if you think you know everything there is to know about The Beatles, a new documentary coming to Hulu this fall is bound to have something that you haven’t seen or heard yet. Director Ron Howard has been working on a documentary about the British import known as the Fab Four, focusing on the years the band was touring around the world to screaming audiences and fainting women from 1962 to 1966, and the first teaser trailer gives us a glimpse of the film, complete with talking heads from the surviving members of the band, Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Steve Gleason was once a professional NFL defensive back for the New Orleans Saints, credited with kickstarting the beginning of a huge comeback for the once-struggling football team, something that the city desperately needed. But at age 34, his whole world went into upheaval when he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Gleason is a new documentary from Finders Keepers director Clay Tweel that tells Steve Gleason’s story so far, providing the backstory of his career and the dramatic change in his life following his medical diagnosis as he deals with the deterioration of his bodily functions. However, what could easily just be a sad story is made to feel uplifting as Gleason rises to the challenge and refuses to let the disease ruin his quality of life. But most importantly, he doesn’t let it stop him from being an integral part of his family.

Tickled is one of the most bizarre and riveting documentaries of the year, but the real-life story unfolding around the film is also getting stranger by the day.
Last night at a Tickled Q&A in Los Angeles, the film’s co-director Dylan Reeve encountered a surprise: several people featured in the documentary showed up for the screening. Hit the jump for the cringe-worthy video that resulted, and some thoughts from co-director David Farrier on how he feels about proceeding with the film’s release. Massive SPOILERS for the Tickled documentary follow (If it’s playing in a theater near you, you should see it. It’s great).

America is so embroiled in the current insane election that you may have forgotten some of the craziness that ensued in the election for president back in 2012. You may not remember this, but comedian and sitcom star Roseanne Barr was once legitimately campaigning to be President of the United States as a challenge to the two-party political system that runs our democracy. Now a documentary reminds us of her journey, and gives us an in-depth look at not just her campaign, but the comedian herself.
