Movie Reviews

Without a doubt the most compelling analysis available
kewlboy | Calgary, AB Canada | 05/28/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While there are many video documentaries available on the U.S. presidents, few are as insightful, objective and informative as this series from PBS. In fact, many teachers and professors have been known to use these films as an introductory basis for their students, and although they are long, about 12 hours combined, you will come away from the "experience" knowing much more about the presidents than you could ever have thought possible. In that vein I would suggest this series is the equivalent to reading a good 300-400 page biography of each leader separately. For anyone with an interest in U.S. history this series is a must own! Buy it today!"

Fantastic History, As Well As Entertainment!

"Wonderful package-anybody who has seen one of the various documentaries under the PBS "American Experience" banner does not have to be told how terrific they are. "The Republicans" set is equally good, and the transfers are stunning."
Ultimate documentaries regarding these Gentlemen

"It is compelling and breathtaking to ride along the bumpy roads that were layed out for these Presidents through these AMERICAN EXPERIENCE DVD's. David McCullough and PBS are second to none.LBJ's segment is my particular favorite. While men with FDR and JFK's personality could be elected today... the days of men like LBJ... for good or bad... are over. He was way too animated and crude for today's candidate... which makes for wonderful recollections and storytelling found in his DVD."
