5.0 out of 5 stars Looking and sounding amazing on blu-ray, 4 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I received my tin cased copy this morning and I can honestly say it's a fantastic production. The scene where Alex Kintner gets chewed up is truely horrifying as is the spruced up 7.1 sound that accompanies this especially if you have some good speakers and amplifier set up!

A real pleasure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic detail, 1 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mahler: Symphony No. 4 (Audio CD)
I'm loving Honeck's Mahler. His attention to detail is wonderful and this is obviously inpiring the Pittsburghers. They better hold onto that fantastic first horn before Vienna or Berlin snap him up!

Great sound from Exton too. Looking forward to the 6th, 7th, 8th & 9th symphonies!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect late night film !, 20 Aug 2012
This review is from: Silver Streak [1976] [DVD] (DVD)
I love this film, I can watch it over and over and over and over and over and over without getting bored. Wilder is great and the fantastic McGoohan is the villian. Mancini's score is truely memorable.

Waiting for Blu-ray...........

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest actor in the world !, 10 July 2012
The Greatest actor that has ever been recorded in sound and vision portrays No 6 in a performance of a lifetime.

Patrick McGoohan knew he was great but never let on. He was greater than Brando, Nicholson, Hanks, Newman, Fonda, Hackman, Bogart, Stewart, ect etc etc etc

He was simply the finest actor ever to grace the screen, He was at the top of the top, even if he never had the big film parts or awards,

Just look at his genius acting as the warden in Escape From Alactraz. It is as if it is happening for real.

1.0 out of 5 stars Well played but totally characterless!, 19 Jun 2012
If you want to know what Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto sounds like, for say, studying purposes, this version will do. It's well played and recorded, though a little smudged in places.

But if you want something more look elsewhere. This performance by both soloist and orchestra is totally devoid of character. There's no inflection, no personality, just straight forward note playing. It's TOTALLY & utterly boring. What's the point ???

Don't waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest performance of Elgar 1 ever recorded!, 17 Jun 2012
The title of my review says all. Both conductor and orchestra reached a different level here. Playing is at full tilt. If Elgar can hear this recording, he'll be more than satisfied, I'm sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow Love this film!, 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Drive [Blu-ray] (2011) (Blu-ray)
If you like it dark and semi slow, you'll love this underground LA drama. Gosling does a truely weird job as the lead, kind of ponderous and stoned in a Marlon Brando type way. Looking awesome on blu-ray.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest Bruckner recordings !, 8 May 2012
Haitink gives us one of the greatest Bruckner 6s, if not the greatest. Playing of the Statskapelle is majestic. This is a Bruckner 6 for a lifetime.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money - get Tennstedt or Inbal, 29 April 2012
This conductor hasn't got a clue how to interpret Mahler or how to pace the 8th.

Fine sound and visuals (and that's all it seems to take to sway the other reviewers on here) can't compensate for such a shockingly bad interpretation. And why is the tenor soloist off? Of all parts!!!! Mahler would have kicked this shambolic lot out!

Get Tennstedt Festival Hall or Inbal's denon recording to hear two very great 8ths. Leave this in the bluray dustbin where it belongs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest Heldenleben, but the greatest Zarathustra alongside Kempe !, 14 Mar 2012
Buy this fine sounding recording for the finest Zarathustra, it's really the greatest performance ever captured - (alongside Kempe's awseome Dresden recording).

As for Ein Heldenleben, the greatest performance on disc is currently Haitink's 1970 Concertgebouw take, stunningly playing and interpretated.
