Why should you pick the AoGG DVD set? First because of the quality of the image. Forget your old VHS version, these DVD are of an incredible quality and the pictures from PEI are just amazing. Second, for the behind-the-scenes, the cast and crew interviews and all the comments. I rate both the first and second movie 5 stars, although I do not care too much for the last one. But for the price you pay through this website, the nice box and the additional comments and interviews, I find worth buying the whole collector’s package. And also, I like the idea of owning the full trilogy. Highly recommended to anyone who liked AoGG and highly recommended for anyone who never saw AoGG!

Anne of Green Gables is a remarkable movie (series). Although I never read the books from Lucy Maud Montgomery, I watched the series with my fiancee, whom I got this collector’s series for. This is not my typical type of movie, but I really enjoyed it. The cast chosen to play in this series is noteworthy. And it is hard to believe, after watching the first movie, that Richard Farnsworth (Matthew Cuthbert) was actually a stuntman for 30 years! I got this collector’s dvd set because it came with the extras, which I found very valuable (my fiancee was just crazy over those extras!) as they added another dimension to the tale. I’m happy I got to watch this series and a tip for all guys, I can certify that you will become the luckiest man in the world if you get your gf/fiancee/wife this as a b-day present or Christmas present.

Anne of Green Gables is definitely one of my favorite movie. It stars Megan Follows as Anne Shirley. Megan Follows and all the cast do a wonderful job. The storyline is wonderful (although it does not always follow the storyline from our beloved books from Lucy Maud Montgomery). I decided to buy the Collection, because of the discount you get through this website, it comes up cheaper than buying each DVD individually. The comments and extras are a wonderful addition to this already so great 5 stars movie! Love it!

I have always been a fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery books as well as the Kevin Sullivan movies. Whether it was Anne of Green Gables, its sequel or Road to Avonlea, I have always been pleased with what Kevin Sullivan has achieved. However, this last movie of the trilogy is not at all what I expected. I am somewhat disappointed. While the movie is okay, somewhat decent, I did not think it was very representative of any of the books nor did it pictured Anne Shirley as how she should be. Kevin Sullivan took too much liberty with the storyline and I would definitely not call it a “continuing story”. This movie is not recommended for people who have read the book and have high expectations of the movie.

My husband and myself have watched the movie on TV, when it first aired. Our opinions were mixed. Because I am a fervent fan of Anne of Green Gables and have read every single book, my expectations were totally different, and I was shocked at the dissemblance between the movie and any of the book. However, my husband, who hasn’t read any of the book did find the movie quite interesting and decent. Sadly, a movie that I recommend for non Anne Shirley fans, and to complete your trilogy!

This movie was okay. Not a 5 stars, but not as bad as everyone depicts it to be. It sure does not follow the books, but the storyline is fine. A movie I recommend for entertainment, but don’t expect to recognize any parts from the books, there are none.
