Fireball: Visitors from Darker Worlds - Surprisingly dull doc about meteorites. Especially because his previous doc about natural phenomena, Into the Inferno, was pretty good. Here the subject matter just isn't that gripping on its own (a lot of tedious scientific talk) and Herzog doesn't do enough to bring a sense of wonder to it. There are scattered good moments, usually when he focuses on the human element. But most of it is rather meh. Rating: Fair (61)

Been doing a massive Herzog binge over the past month, rewatching everything in the two Blu-Ray collections, and a few new ones as well. If Shout Factory happens to do a third volume, I hope these are on it:

Grizzly Man
Wings of Hope
Jag Mandir
Encounters at the End of the World
The White Diamond
Invincible
Bells from the Deep
My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done?
Into the Inferno
Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World

I know some of these are already out on Blu-Ray, but I'm a sucker for a box set.

Didn’t know there were 2 box set collections.  I have had one for at least 5 or maybe 10 years but only watched 2 movies out of it so far.
