Movie Reviews

Good information, but dry.
Malleus | 03/26/2003
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this video for use in my Grade 9 Social Studies class. It had everything I needed in terms of the content, but the production value was bare-bone minimal. It sort of looks like a high school av club made it for their final project, though they would have received an A+ for their efforts. However, my 14 year-old students failed to see the value in a video that didn't contain the flash that they had become accustomed to.I would recommend this video for a Grade 12 class or an introductory university history course, as younger children simply did not appreciate it."
Solid in terms of information, but otherwise dry

"I used this video with my Grade 9 Social Studies class. It covered everything that I would be dealing with, but the production value was... minimal. Dry and bare bones with no flash, a problem when one is trying to keep hormone raging 14 year-olds interested in history. This video is better suited for students in Grade 12 or an introductory university history class."
Excellent Overview

"Just the Facts: The Industrial Revolution
I show this documentary every semester in my cultural geography class at a local community college and I find it is an excellent overview of the many economic and geographic factors behind the Industrial Revolution occurring in England. It summarizes many points that I cover in my class and brings many concepts together regarding economic geography. I highly recommend this product as an informative teaching tool. Although it is classified in my public library as being for teens, I would suggest that its academic level is higher, and perhaps why another reviewer has rated it as uninteresting for his students who maybe were not yet ready for all that it had to offer."

"I have a personal collection of over seventy historical documentaries, and I have to say this one was the absolute WORST one I had ever owned. I hated it so much I gave it away to a fellow student in one of my college history courses for FREE. The production value is so low that it was probably produced for less than one-hundred dollars, and only features a few historians none of whom are notable. The timeline in the documentary is also disjointed and may be confusing for individuals who are unsophisticated in the history of the industrial revolution. This documentary was so bad that I decided after watching it that the 'Just for Facts' series must have absolutely no professional standards for their documentaries and have vowed never to buy one again from this particular series of documentaries. Even my worst history channel documentary in my collection is exponentially better than this piece of crap. It should be noted that the few historians that are included do not even have a very efficient grasp on the industrial revolution, and are intellectually mediocre in their analysis of the various events they detail."
