"The second disc was exactly the same as the first one, other than that very interesting stuff"
An amateur documentary, better than many of the pros

"First, be aware of what you are getting here. These are home-grown DVR-Rs by amateur astronomer and aircraft enthusiast Jeff Chandeller (now deceased). I think people over-emphasize the differences between a "professional" and an "amateur" to the point that it sounds like nothing an amateur can say is valid, and that is a fallacy. Amateurs can be very well informed, and very well educated. What makes them "amateur" is that they are not employed in the field with which they are knowledgeable, and that fact may not have any bearing on their credibility at all.
Jeff Chandeller seemed to have an extraordinary amount of insight in the operations of NASA and space missions. I am not in any position to confirm or deny his various claims, but what he presented in his videos is clear, demonstrable, logical, and believable. For example, I was impressed with his presentation of how NASA applies static masks to exterior night-time views in order to hide details. He didn't just claim it, he gave us examples. And he showed exactly which desk is responsible for this. To Jeff Chandeller there could be no reason for this mask except to hide "anomalies" that NASA does not want the public to see. In my mind, there could be some greater reasons of national security, not *necessarily* anything that could be extra-terrestrial in nature, but orbital phenomena that is either of a top secret nature -- either produced by our own government or another's.
But Jeff Chandeller's entire documentary features real NASA footage. Yes, you have to cope with the cheesy off-the-shelf licensed background music that sounds a little like 70's porno, and really badly mixed sound narration of Chandeller's own voice, but his clips are raw and that's what it's all about. His explanation of what we are seeing helps to place things in context.
One thing that you get from documentaries like this that you CANNOT get from professional documentaries is the entire footage. Professional documentaries often show you the highlights, but they do not show you the entire footage so you can see the event in context. Context is very meaningful, and this documentary makes strong use of it.
The 2nd disk is not as impressive as the first. For one, it does have the same introduction as the first, which talks about what NASA does to hide "anomalies." But it only features one object, whereas the first disk features quite a few of them. And the object featured on the 2nd disk was not as impressive to me as the others. In fact I am thinking it could have been an object outside the depth of field (out of focus) coming into resolution from the distance as the Shuttle passes it. Chandeller attempts to show that NASA tried to "debunk" the object we had seen by focusing the cameras on lights to cause a lens flare, which looks similar, but I'm not so sure this was what they were doing. If not, the purpose doesn't jump out at me, I admit, but that presumes every single thing they do with that camera has some extraordinary purpose.
The 1st disk is worth the price of the documentary alone."

"The main video is pretty good. I like the narrators style, he presents things with a sense of humor. The footage is quite good and compelling for the most part. The negative is that the 2nd disc is almost exactly the same as 2nd. Why bother putting 2 DVDs and calling it a set when it's duplicate material. Aside from that it's worth watching. The scene of UFOs going into a thunderstorm where you can clearly see them entering the cloud layer (so it can't be ice) is worth the price alone!"
