The Pacific HBO Miniseries

Thursday, March 25, 2010
I watched Band of Brothers with awe many times and I was so interested with history then. I am aware that war movies like Band of Brothers and Saving Private Ryan are all American-side story-telling, but I am more concerned of the acting than any other perspective. I followed Easy Company all throughout and their leader Winters. But this time, the second world war is to be told based on the Pacific, by real stories of some veterans.

The Pacific is a ten-part television World War II mini-series, produced by HBO, Seven Network Australia and DreamWorks, that premiered on March 14, 2010 according to Wikipedia. Part of the people who stood as producers of the expensive project include Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Gary Goetzman. The Pacific HBO miniseries was mainly shot in Australia. Besides, The Pacific is lodged basically on two memoirs of U.S. Marines including Eugene Sledge entitled With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa with Robert Leckie entitled  Helmet for My Pillow. The series will narrate the stories of the two war veterans and as well as Marine John Basilone, as the war against the Empire of Japan happened. In addition, the memoirs of Sledge entitled China Marine and Red Blood, as well as the Black Sand, which is the memoir of Chuck Tatum, a Marine who fought alongside Basilone at Iwo Jima were used as basis of The Pacific HBO miniseries. Just like Band of Brothers, the said miniseries will capture the hearts of the viewers and gather more knowledge and understanding regarding the war in the Pacific Theater of Operations.

    Do you know if there's a home video available for this series? Well, I'm just curious. This could be an option after our weekend getaway plans next week. My friends and I planned to visit Mountsea Resorts in Cavite. My close friend, Jeena, who currently lives in the US is coming home next week. We're very excited to explore Cavite resorts and Tagaytay areas.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for sharing this post. We've watched some clips of this show in Youtube while staying at Watercamp Resort in Cavite. It was an amazing mini-series since I'm familiar with the story. Hopefully, we will watch another popular movie in the vacation houses that we will visit soon. I'm dreaming of visiting many Cavite resorts this year. How about you?
