    "I'm a huge history buff, and nothing gets me more excited than when a director makes an accurate portrayal of a war. The World at War happens to be one of the best I've ever seen, providing heart-wrenching details of one of the greatest battles humankind has been through."

    "Shoah is such an amazing film on some of the events that happened during WWII, it was almost hard to watch seeing the things that had happened. If you're into documentaries I recommend watching it."
