Movie Reviews

More propaganda and newsreel footage than serious documentar
Kenneth M. Pizzi | San Mateo, CA United States | 05/09/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The Korean War has been terribly under-represented in both print and documentary. The late David Halberstam's work, "The Coldest Winter," should hopefully rekindle some interest in it. This war certainly deserves better than this documentary. As typical of Timeless Media, this is really a series of newsreels of with a heavy dose of propaganda (decisively anti-Communist as a sign of the McCarthy era) trying to pass itself off as a "documentary" to the unsuspecting buyer. While slightly better than "The Great War: WWI" another disappointing production of Timeless Media, it is, by no means, definitive.

Those seeking a more comprehensive examination of the Korean conflict would be better served by other series available elsewhere like, for instance, "The History Channel." Buyer Beware...$9.99 is too much to pay for this set; I purchased mine at Ross-Dress for Less for only $4.99."
Korea - Universal News Reels
C. White | Tennessee | 11/30/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is another great package at a great price made by timeless media. This one has all of the Universal newsreels in chronological order. This serves to present you with something nostalgic, but also to show the propaganda that the american public was shown. You only get half the story here from the standpoint of the us military censors. This does include some great footage, but mostly in rear areas. This is a must have for Korean war history, even though other sources are needed for an accurate representation."
My War
D. K. Hansen | Riverton, Utah USA | 01/06/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Hsaving served during the Korean War, the DVDs brought back memories. Some of the merories I would just as soon forget. The coverage of the war was excellent. It provided information that was not normally known by those who served outside of Korean. The DVDs provided a good idea of the mountainous country our service men and to climb and the difficulties the mountains provided. It provided good coverage of both the ground and air operations and the value of each."
Not What I Thought It Was Going To Be
A. Moore | Chicago, IL USA | 09/15/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Primarily a series of old newsreels. Did not provide an accurate chronological depiction of the war."
