Description

    They depended on each other. And the world depended on them.

    From executive producers Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and Gary Goetzman the two critically acclaimed 10-part HBO Miniseries Band of Brothers and The Pacific.

    Band Of Brothers
    Based on the bestseller by Stephen E. Ambrose, Band Of Brothers tells the story of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army. Drawn from interviews with Easy Company, as well as soldiers' journals and letters, Band Of Brothers chronicles the experiences of these men who knew extraordinary bravery and extraordinary fear. They were an elite rifle company parachuting into France early on D-Day morning, fighting in the Battle of the Bulge and capturing Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden. They were also a unit that suffered 150 percent casualties, and whose lives became legend.

    The Pacific
    From executive producers Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman, The Pacific tracks the real-life journeys of three U.S. Marines - Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) and John Basilone (Jon Seda) - across the vast canvas of the Pacific theater during World War II. The miniseries follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima, through the horror of Okinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day. The miniseries is based in part on the books Helmet for My Pillow by Robert Leckie, and With the Old Breed by Eugene B. Sledge, with additional material from Red Blood, Black Sand by Chuck Tatum, and China Marine by Eugene B. Sledge, as well as original interviews conducted by the filmmakers.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A double dud With a comprehensive story to tell on two powerfull topics "Band of brothers" & "The Pacific", I felt confident that action and a sensitive and carefully researched storyline would sensitively reflect the enormity of these two theatres of conflict. I was wrong. Wooden acting, lots of dead dull nothing happening moments. I am unlikey to get this out for another playing - ever. So many lost opportunities. the few action scenes was far outweighed by only telling 5% of the whole story. Typical heavy handed american direction eventually crushed the life out of a potentially noble and dynamic saga.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compelling story Bought this for the pacific, haven't watch BOB yet. The pacific was an amazing tale, one that really brought the war into the lounge room and did an amazing job of making you feel as if you were there. In saying that some episodes can feel slow especially during the time the Americans were stopped in Australia, other than that this show has to be right up there on my best ww2 movies and shows I've ever seen

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful It was great to find both band of brothers and the pacific together in full. Both are very powerful and emotive. It seems realistic and really is an eye opener. I introduced the series to my partner who hasn't seen the series before and he was really impressed with it. It's a very powerful series and really did make me feel for the characters and grow attached to them.
