The Revolutionary War, a review by Antares


The Revolutionary War (1995) 80/100 - The main strength of this documentary was the inclusion of Charles Kuralt as narrator. It's very sad that most people today have forgotten this eloquent broadcaster whose ease of delivery always made him a joy to listen to. The programs tended to stay on the course of the battles that took place between 1775 and the war's end in 1783. It does mention the Continental Congress, Thomas Paine's writings and all the legislative taxes levies upon the colonists, but these series of events take a backseat to the battles of the fledgling Continental Army. Being a student of military history and tactics, this suited me just fine.

What the color coding means...

Teal = Masterpiece
Dark Green = Classic or someday will be
Lime Green = A good, entertaining film
Orange = Average
Red = Cinemuck
Brown = The color of crap, which this film is

Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith


A part of

Star Wars: The Complete Saga



Year: 2005
Director: George Lucas
Cast: Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Hayden Christensen
Overview: The STAR WARS saga is now complete on DVD with Episode III REVENGE OF THE SITH. Torn between loyalty to his mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the seductive powers of the Sith, Anakin Skywalker ultimately turns his back on the Jedi, thus completing his journey to the dark side and his transformation into Darth Vader. Experience the breathtaking scope of the final chapter in spectacular clarity and relive all the epic battles including the final climactic lightsaber duel between Anakin and Obi-Wan.

Watched: 2nd. Oct 2011
My Thoughts: The final part of the prequel trilogy. I enjoyed this a lot more than the earlier 2. In this they really set up the original trilogy with the 4 births - The Empire, Darth Vader, Luke and Leia.

My Rating: I found this to be enjoyable and so a 4

I enjoyed the whole Heroes series. I still think it is surprising that the first season as so highly regarded. I really liked it, but still I was surprised that it was taken to such a high regard. I also liked the later seasons even though they generally aren't as well liked.
