Movie Reviews

Monarchy 2
L. P. Little | Albuquerque, NM USA | 03/11/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Excellent documentary of the British monarchy. As a couple of anglophiles and history buffs, my wife and I enjoyed it very much. I highly recommend it to anyone with similar interests."
History brought to life
Scott Jeffe | NY, NY | 05/25/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is good watching...although I didn't really need all the acted out scenes... What is it about people who need to see actors playing historical characters...even in a documentary. Starkey is an excellent narrator, even if he periodically insults the actual monarchy (in other forums) while making his money talking about them... All in all an excellent way to spend some free time."
The second Monarchy

(4 out of 5 stars)

"A continuation of the first set of Monarchy. Quite interesting and informative if you are into English history."
A great overview of English history
Kathryn A. Sievers | West Des Moines, IA United States | 04/20/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I know the title of this collection is "Monarchy" but the history of the monarchy in England is the history of England. This rendition is particularly good. The backgrounds for the telling of the history are the actual places the events took place. The art, architecture, and scenery are very much a part of the telling. The programs are informative and beautiful. Part 1 of this two part series is just as good!"
