Review of World War II Pacific News

It is not our intent to recreate battle scenes or stories through modern day documentaries. This has been done considerably. Instead we are making available a collection of War-era newsreels and other military films that were created during the war, and you will see what folks saw during the war at home in theaters, or in the work place. Some were issued as propaganda, and thus suitable for the times, but may not be politically correct for today's society. However, these are not fiction. What you see is what happened during each conflict, and some are more graphic than others. It may not be suitable for small children, although these are not rated one way or the other. It is all history during a time when the world was a different place. These are from 16mm films that have been professionally transferred.

In the future we will be offering a few more DVD's of various films we have obtained.

This collection includes 8 different Black and White newsreels that were made sile

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good
3 Star Good
2 Star Fair
1 Star Poor

The rest is optional but appreciated.

In your opinion, how was the narration level? There was no narration.
Just enough.
Could have used more.
A little too much.
Way too much.
Narration can be turned off.

Aside from the content of the DVD, how would you rate the image quality (sharpness, camera steadiness, etc)? Poor.
A little rough around the edges.

How would you rate the VALUE of this video? Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Good value.
Excellent value!

Last question. Would you recommend this DVD to others? Definitely not!
Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
A "Must Have"!
