ANZAC Girls product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsHonouring the Centenary of the commencement of World War One.

A moving new six-part miniseries based on true stories of Australian and New Zealand nurses at Gallipoli and the Western Front. ANZAC Girls is based on real events and real people - Alice, Elsie, Olive, Hilda and Grace. Like their brothers, fathers, lovers and husbands, these ANZAC Girls are our heroes. But they were also just ordinary girls - our sisters, our daughters, ourselves - looking for adventure, love, fun and friendship.

Beginning in the heady pre-Gallipoli days in Egypt, moving through the devastation of that campaign and the utterly unexpected casualty count, through the bitter months on the barren island of Lemnos, to the long hard years of the war in Europe and the Western Front, ANZAC Girls is personal, intimate and raw.

I read the write up when I noticed that the DVD was available for review and I was really excited when I opened the KIWIreviews parcel and noticed that I was successful in getting this DVD to review, I saved it to watch with a friend as she I had posted that I had got the DVD to watch and she had missed the last two episodes when it was on TV.

My first thought was that it started off a bit slow but once the story got moving then it was really captivating and interesting, some parts had me in fits of laughter and some parts almost had me in tears, the actors did a brilliant job. The nurses were treated like second class citizens and they had made the best of a bad situation, I really liked how they made sure to keep in touch and how they also got sick and needed days off to recuperate and they faced hardships and loss.

I love history and always find that most stories are told from one point of view and that often you don't see the other things that happened but this was based on what the nurses had to put up with and deal with and how they managed to cope, the romances even when they knew it was not the best time and the friendships made and for some the learning opportunities.

I would watch this again and be sure to let my kids watch when they are older as it is a well rounded story and one that is relevant to most kiwis.

Product reviews for listing 2027: Get Smart
Directed by Peter Segal

Product image for Get SmartIn the world of covert intelligence, only one man is Smart. Steve Carell is in CONTROL as Maxwell Smart, the novice agent often out of his depth but never out of options, in this action comedy pitting him against the nuclear scheme of the evil spy group KAOS. Anne Hathaway partners with him as ever-capable Agent 99.

Travel with Max and 99 through the dangerous realm of moral radios, malfunctioning pocketknives, exploding dental floss and much more. Look out Agent 007, Maxwell Smart is here to save the day. His way.
