Format:DVD
The new documentary "Hungry For Change" covers a familiar topic, but repackages the information in a nice user-friendly way. In all honesty, I have now seen about a dozen different films that challenge the status quo and seek to enlighten the masses about the destructive nature of careless eating. But despite what seems like a patently obvious message, we (as consumers) still choose to look the other way. As a society, we have branded convenience as more important than health and big business has taken advantage of this decision in some pretty nefarious ways. But like many, while I realize my faults, I still perpetuate the problem in my own lifestyle. In truth, "Hungry for Change" really doesn't present anything I haven't seen before--but I guess a caustic reminder is appropriate every once in a while! And if you have never given your food choices much thought, I'd definitely say this is worth a look.

There are a lot of topics covered in this brief ninety minute presentation. For me, the film starts on incredibly strong ground as it deals directly with concerns of diet and nutrition. The section on dieting is both amusing and disturbing, and the criticisms presented about food manufacturers, distributors, and regulators hit the target mercilessly. Just the facts about so-called fat-free products should be shown to every household in the world that thinks it's making smarter choices! Sugar, of course, takes an expected (and warranted) beating by the experts. We even see Jamie Oliver (flavored milk's biggest opponent) at the 2010 TED conference. But if you follow this educational movement, you'll recognize many of this movie's participants (it is by the makers of Food Matters).

3.0 out of 5 stars Conflicted about this March 24, 2013
By J. Ford
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I'm conflicted about this a bit. The first half of this documentary seemed fairly solid, but the latter half went off the rails a bit for me. This documentary somehow featured a subplot about some woman who felt chubby (but didn't appear so, to me) and insecure, until she started juicing vegetables. The weirdest point was easily when this woman fired up her iPad to watch the documentary I was already watching. I giggled a little bit, thinking she was going to be pretty pissed when she got to the part where they'd been filming her without her knowledge.

I thought it was interesting that the documentary mentioned the addictive properties of modern, processed food. More focus on that probably could have made this an awesome documentary, but much of this was glossed over. Only later in the film do we find out that the people we've been hearing from aren't experts per se, but have a definite stake in getting people to buy their particular books or buy their particular juicer. OF COURSE the juicer guy thinks everyone should start pulping local flora and drinking it. OF COURSE the self-help author thinks people should self-help themselves to one or two of her books.

I did laugh when the "scary list of bad chemicals" ran past the screen as they were going on about natural, natural, natural. I recognized two of the scary chemicals as extract from orange peels (limonene and linalool).

I guess I was looking for something a bit more hard-nosed about exactly what bad food does that is so bad, and why. This isn't that documentary. But it has some worthwhile parts, at first. Watch the first half, and then go about your day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hate to disagree but... October 9, 2012
Format:DVD
I loved "Fat Sick and Nearly Dead" and saw an add for this movie on the JointheReboot website. I was expecting something more like that. I don't disagree with the ideas discussed here, I just didn't like the format. A lot of the clips were repetitive, there were only minor allusions to some of the speakers' personal stories - which sounded like they would have been some of the most compelling parts. I also didn't find the little vignettes of the diet-soda chugging lady necessary, it was a cheesy and distracting story telling device. I wanted to see more personal stories and more specifics on healthy eating and juicing and whatnot. Disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sequel to Foodmatters February 12, 2013
By GLS
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This clip did not impress me as much as Foodmatters or Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.
The subject in the movie mildly showed wrong eating habits and came to change to a healthy eating lifestyle supposedly enjoying the healthier hair, skin, and weight but there were no visible changes throughout the movie. Foodmatters went more into detail about the bad things about the standard diet full of processed foods, and Joe Cross in Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead melted the fat off before your very eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind blowing film! June 29, 2012
Format:DVD
This film is amazing. I have watched a lot of food and health related documentaries, so I was skeptical at paying a high price for another one. After watching the trailer though I was hooked and had to get it! After watching it, I'm glad I did. This film was very well produced and has such a wealth of knowledge, that even for people who have seen or read a ton on nutrition and food there is still more information for you here, and it's presented in such a welcoming way that I think it is especially great for the people who are just beginning to want to change their health for the better. I am telling all my friends and family about this film, you should definitely check it out!
