Format: Audio CD
The Classic FM `Movie Themes' 3 CD box sets appear on a annual basis. In 2006 we had `Classic FM at the Movies', in 2007 there was the `Sequel' and now we have the 2008 `Ultimate'.

The first and sequel sets were a good choice of music from popular films, the sequel making a particularly good buy because it consisted of tracks from a different selection of films than on the original.

The `Ultimate' title of this latest release implies that it's either the best one or the final one, but in my opinion it's neither. It's not the best for there is a considerable overlap with the music from the previous Classic FM Movie CDs, and it probably won't be the final one of its type thanks to the vast back catalogue of film music available. Disappointingly, if we exclude the three bonus tracks then around two thirds of the remaining 34 tracks are from films featured on the previous two Classic FM sets.

It should also be noted that as with the previous Classic FM Movie CDs the music may not be the exact version as that used in the film. This is made clear on the rear of the box, and while this is usually due only to a different orchestra or artist than in the original film rather than a wildly differing sound, those with a concern over this would be better choosing the original film soundtrack CD.

The three bonus tracks featuring Myleene Klass, Jonathan Ansell and Hayley Westenra may convince some to go for this set, but those who have the previous two releases should expect some repetition.

Considering the price this is a good value 3CD set for those who don't already have the first two. Given the huge choice of film music available though I would like to have seen far more new material used to make it a more attractive continuation in the series.

Classic FM Movies- The Ultimate Collection overlaps with previous editions to a large degree. In other words, we are listening to same movie tracks featured in previous editions in this three disc set. The album offers no fresh movie tracks to listen to, but offers some bonus tracks from today hottest classical artists. The title of the album seems inappropriate bearing mind we are spoilt with huge cinema choice today. Why not feature the newest tracks rather than exhaust listeners with timeless classics? Combining the best movie tracks from previous editions seems a pointless task and releasing a new version with a pop corn cover is a typical marketing gimmick to allure buyers in the album.

The tracks featured in this album are pleasurable to listen to. The greatest movie to embrace cinematic history range from Star Wars, Lord of the Rings,Great Escape and Out of Africa are featured. The tracks are brilliant and great easy listening, but the cinematic experience will not click much on light what I have mentioned.

I think Classical FM would have been better launching an oringinal version featuring today's hottest movie tracks. Too much of a glimmick to sell a product with attactive artwork. Creativity is a great selling point, but it is the end product and how it percived with buyers, that makes the difference. On the light on what I have mentioned, the album is just same old material which exhaust listeners and makes it a shamelessly a disspointing album.

I bought this as a little gift for my daughter in law to cheer her up ... and it worked! She wrote to tell me that she had been caught on several occasions singing out loud in the car to the amazement of other people at the traffic lights.

Joking apart, the CD has everything and makes a great gift, for your own pleasure or for others. Delivery was excellent.

I love classical music, especially from movies. This album is phenomenally good, makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up just thinking about it. It is a fantastic way to start your day too, I work in a VERY quiet office, so I get in in the mornings, put my headphones in and start my day with a blast of Star Wars, would could be better!? Top notch Classic FM!

I was very disappointed with this CD, somehow the quality of the recordings is very poor, there doesn't seem to be any depth to them. I have some of the same pieces on other CD's and they sound a lot better. I won't be playing it again. Such a shame as the classic FM title offered more than ti delivered.

I bought this as some background music for our wedding reception as it has a good mixture of classical music, but with a modern twist. I'm sure it will go down a treat :)
