5.0 out of 5 stars A brillinat read about a brillinat era, 26 Jan 2014
A brilliant read. The Academy put Brixton on the map for all the right reasons at a time when it was a no go area for most people.

If it hadn't been for Simon, Pat and the team many of us simply would never had the chance to see so many great bands.

When are we going to see the film? I can't wait to see who is going to play a young Parksy stood on the door in top hat and tails?

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT TEST OF YOUR SURROUND SYSTEM, 18 Jun 2011
This review is from: WALL-E [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This film was nominated for best sound at the 2008 Oscars.
Another great animated movie that can be enjoyed by the whole family - although watching it on the big screen with a great sound system is a real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great test for sound and picture, 18 Jun 2011
Another Oscar winning Soundtrack for Christopher Boyes.
Although this film is usually thought of as one to show off a projection system there's a superb musical score mixed in with the special effects and Foley work that makes this system a great demo disc for any system.
We use this clip all the time on the same MK 150 loudspeaker system the film was mixed on to show how a well-crafted surround score should add to the involvement of the movie not fight for attention.
A great demonstration disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for home cinema buffs, 18 Jun 2011
The soundtrack for this movie won Chris Boyes an Oscar for the best soundtrack.

This is a great film to test any surround system with. The scenes in the jungle with insects buzzing all around should place sounds all around your room without drawing attention to any loudspeakers. Obviously the panning of the planes in the final chapters is also a great test for how evenly the soundstage pans and with dinosaurs fighting Kong you can be sure of a workout for your sub.

We use this clip all the time in our demonstrations on the same MK 150 loudspeaker system that the film was made on. If you're a home cinema fan, this film is a must have for testing and showing off what your system can do.
