That's Even More Entertainment!
25 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The series of documentary films continues with That's Entertainment, Part II. And just like the first one, this is 100% pure entertainment! That's right, this second installment in the That's Entertainment series of documentary films is very fabulous and educational! This ranks right up their with the first one, one of the greatest documentary movies ever to be made! Just like the first one, we get a very good look at the entertainment industry back in the good old days of movies and musicals, and so therefore, that really makes this a great documentary to watch and enjoy! This is not only very fabulous, it is also very educational, because like I just said, this gives us a very good look at the entertainment industry back in the good old days of movies and musicals! I have seen a lot of the movies mentioned in this documentary, and so therefore, I really enjoyed this even more than I had expected! On a scale from one to ten, I will award this movie another perfect rating of ten stars out of ten for being a documentary that I will probably never forget about!

Another thing, I have seen all three of the documentaries in this series, and I can say that all three of them are something remarkable to see! Considering my big obsession with movies, I am very fascinated by these documentaries! And like a lot of other movies that I have seen, this is a movie that I could just watch again and again and not get bored of seeing it! Yes, it really is that good! Going on, I am really glad that I saw this, because like the previous documentary, this has really helped extend my movie education, and I really admire a documentary that can do something like that!

To all film buffs who have not seen this, you should take the time to watch this if you haven't watched it already, because if you loved the first one, then you are probably going to love the second one as well! So in short, this requires viewing as part of your film education, and not only that, but you should see it considering how great it is! This is marvelous, simply marvelous, I am totally and completely glad that I saw this, because it really is something fabulous to see! So watch this whenever you can, because you really are going to find it fascinating!

10/10
