Cloud Atlas [DVD + UV Copy] [2013] <b>DVD</b> ~ Tom Hanks

Cloud Atlas is "movie marmite", you'll either wonder where the three hours went or get bored and fall asleep.

This is Science Fiction as you have never quite seen it before and really needs to be seen on the 'big screen' to fully do it justice.

I bought both albums on cassette at the gig and played them until they finally died in the dark recesses of my cassette player. Franky I had played them so much the initial respect I had for them had faded, they had literally been "loved to death".

After watching the BBC replay of the Hammersmith Apollo "Brutal Planet" gig I ordered the "Brutally Live" DVD and rediscovered the band. That led to a rush to catch up for lost time… Read more
