Justin and I love watching documentaries. We generally have the same movie preference, but on evenings that we can’t find anything to watch, we’ll scroll through the documentary options.
If you are looking for something new to watch, check out some of these films!
Justin: He’s an American hero who gave up his life to save his friends. If you’ve ever heard of “the murph” workout, this is who created it.
Justin: Even though I don’t drink wine, I found this fascinating. Statistically, the test to become a Sommelier is the hardest test in the world. This documentary follows a few guys as they attempt to become Master Sommeliers.
Kate: This is the most recent one we’ve watched, and we’ve actually watched a few of the other years as well. We find ourselves saying, “we feel like we know these people!” during the documentary because we’ve watched them grow over a few seasons. While neither of us are into CrossFit, we both appreciate how dang hard these people work and how amazing it is that they can do what they do! Justin actually tried CrossFit after watching one of these documentaries but it wasn’t for him. I’m more of a higher energy/cardio/boot camp style work out kind of gal (when I’m NOT 9 months pregnant, of course) so I dont’ really have any interest in trying CrossFit. All that to say, whether you are into the sport or not, it’s a very fascination documentary to watch!
Justin: This is a Crossfit Game Documentary with people displaying amazing feats of strength. It was motivating for me to see these men and women push themselves to their limit (and beyond). Make sure you watch these in order so the winners aren’t spoiled for you!
Kate: This story was incredible. I didn’t know exactly how it was going to turn out, but I found myself so emotionally invested in Eduardo coming out on top and pursuing his dream regardless of what happened during a freak accident. I don’t want to give too much away, but this is definitely a motivating story of someone who pushes himself HARD to overcome obstacles.
Justin: This was a good example of what people can do with the right attitude and sticking to your goals.
Justin: This is crazy. If you think running a marathon sounds hard, you ain’t seen nothing yet. These were created based on a historic prison escape, it’s definitely worth a watch.
Kate: This documentary hits close to home for personal reasons, and was incredibly heartwarming and powerful to watch. It’s the kind of thing that makes you think about what YOU are doing in your life, and how you can help others overcome a tough time.
Have you seen any of these documentaries? If so, which was your favorite? Or do you have a film you would highly recommend?
