Extraordinary: The Stan Romanek Story (2017)

I’m a sucker for UFO movies, even if I’m not sure where I stand on the topic. There’s something primal and awe-inspiring about the idea of alien visitors that’s always fascinated me, which is why I sometimes end up watching complete garbage like this. Presenting evidence it purports to be legitimate even as it’s laughably crude, and relying greatly on testimony from Stan Romanek that reeks of insincerity and manipulation from the beginning, everything about this documentary just feels off. The movie, its claims and its evidence are so astonishingly, transparently fake that I had a hard time believing I was expected to take it all seriously, and kept waiting for a twist to the narrative that never came. It’s crude hack jobs like this that have relegated UFO mythology to the garbage bin of serious exploration.
