I've been waiting for a quality review of this film. Thank you. I feel like I would need to pop a Xanax before watching it to contain my frustration and ire. I admire much of Dunning's research and work but I think UFOs are his blind spot. Compared to the high quality of his other output, he is quick to accept the first available alternate explanation, as shaky as it might be. (Case in point: Scuttlebutt from decades later that Lonnie Zamora was hoaxed by students.) He gives no credence to witnesses, even when they are Navy pilots with everything to lose by coming forward with their testimony. And Dunning makes little effort to hide his disdain for the UFO topic, whether in the comments you cited or in jabs taken on X/Twitter with his compadre, Mick West. They continue to laugh off the recent momentum in Congress regarding the topic as collective hysteria, to the point that they nearly start to sound like the conspiracy theorists, themselves. I think more of an open mind is warranted at this point. It sounds like Dunning is treading tired, old, narrow-minded ground in this film. I admittedly will enjoy watching the reactions from debunkers like Dunning and West if the alien craft retrieval program is ever revealed to be a reality!

"But he was on Fox News, so his opinion holds more weight than mine"

Thank you for watching this movie for us so we don't have to. ๐Ÿ‘ฝ
