The Pacific Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , on May 19, 2010 by getbent57

ThePacific Just finished watching part ten of The Pacific.  This is a really good miniseries.  It is nice to see the war from a different place.  A lot of people are comparing it to Band of Brothers and complaining.  I think they forget,  this is pretty much what how it happened.  That is how the Pacific battles were.

The story focuses more on the horrors of war and what it does to people.  They don’t hold back and showing you this either.  There is one scene that still sticks with me.  It would rival and horror movie.  Want to describe it but I don’t want people to loss the impact if they have not see that episode yet.

This is a very good watch.  I think it will be even better once it is out on DVD and gets all kinds of extras.

The Pacific Part One

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on March 15, 2010 by getbent57

Part one of The Pacific aired last night (March 14, 2010).  If you are not sure what the Pacific is.  Well it is a 10 part mini-series on HBO about the battles in the Pacific during WWII.  It is made by the same people that made Band of Brothers.

Well part one is good.  It starts off a bit slow but builds on the tension.  There are some nice battle scenes.  But the best one takes place at night so it was kind of hard to see what was going on.  The best is yet to come for sure.  The battles are going to be epic.

ThePacific There is new mini series by HBO called The Pacific.  It starts March 14, 2010.  It is from the same people that made Band of Brothers.  So you know it is going to be good.  There are going to be ten episodes.  So if it is any thing like Band of Brothers each one will pretty much be there own movie.

Band Of Brothers Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , on November 26, 2009 by getbent57

bandofbrothers Spike TV is airing the Band of Brothers miniseries today (Nov 26, 2009).  I have the DVD box set for a few years now.  I think it is time to do a review.  Might be saying, “you are a bit late to the draw”.  Well I have had the DVD long before I started blogging.  Any who, this has to be the best miniseries ever made.  Every episode is like its movie.  In fact each episode is a 1000 times better than a lot of movies out there.

I was reading on Wikipedia that are working on a sequel called The Pacific.  That one will start airing in March 2010.

If you have not seen this miniseries or have all see bits of it.  You need to watch it from start to finish.
