steven spielberg

I do like the introduction to Universal Blu-rays and DVDs.  Celebrating 100 years of Universal Studios, I can never seem to skip this little intro from the studios.

Featuring scenes from Jurassic Park, E.T, Back to the Future, Schindler's List and more.  Listen out for the music from Amazing Stories too.

Josh Brolin was the guest on the American talk show 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.'  It doesn't take long before the subject gets on to The Goonies and in particular the much anticipated and talked about sequel.  Brolin explains he wants to do it and that Spielberg has an idea but the waiting continues.

Check out the video.

A much anticipated Sherlock convention that was due to take place sometime this year has no been put back until next year.  The event is being organised by Massive Events in association with Hartswood Films and Showmasters Ltd.

The organisers took to Facebook and posted the following:

"This has been one of the hardest tasks we have ever had to deal with and we now understand how difficult it must be to film the actual tv show as so many of the main cast are incredibly busy and popular!
"We just wanted to let you all know that we really do care and we want to deliver the most incredible event we can and that is why things are taking a bit more time that we originally anticipated."
 Were you all set to attend this event this year?  Let us know your thoughts.

sylvester stallone

Sylvester Stallone has revealed how he (and we must agree) would have made a bad Han Solo.

The Sunday Express said:
The action man has revealed he was up for Harrison Ford's iconic role and reluctantly turned up to audition for the part following the release of his breakout movie Rocky.
He took one look at Lucas and his sidekick upon entering the room and knew immediately he wasn't going to get the part.
Stallone recalls, "After you've seen 100 people, you get tired, so you just hope the guy in front of you disappears... I got nowhere.
"I said, 'Let me just make it easy for you; I would look like crap in Spandex, leotards and a ray gun. Guys from outer space don't have this kind of face'."

Guys like that do have faces like that in outer space but are normally from The Outer Rim.

George Lucas is among three technologists to receive the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers highest accolade

Lucas is to receive an Honorary Membership in the body in recognition of his many contributions to entertainment technology, from founding Industrial Light & Magic, Pixar (which began as a division at ILM) and THX to advancing digital cinematography.
“In his determination to push the medium of cinema with new technologies and techniques, Lucas encountered both support and skepticism,” said SMPTE in its announcement. “It is now clear that his perseverance and vision were key factors in the eventual widespread adoption of digital cinematography in motion picture production.”

thx soundbar
Fancy a soundbar that's THX certified?  Look no further than this impressive setup from Teufel.


Teufel Audio presents its successor to the multiple award-winning Cinebar 51 THX: The new Cinebar 52 THX. In addition to fulfilling the stringent criteria for THX certification for cinema sound, the new soundbar from the Berlin hi-fi manufacturer offers Dolby Virtual Speaker technology and multiple connections for audio and video sources. A more compact home cinema system at this level of quality is simply not available anywhere.
Regarding the Cinebar 52 THX’s many advantages over standard soundbars, product manager Alexander Paul explained:

“It allows you to enjoy the director’s cut every time. With the Cinebar 52’s THX certification, we guarantee that movies sound just like the director intended. In addition, the use of Dolby Virtual Speaker technology creates a realistic surround sound atmosphere from a single loudspeaker enclosure.”

The Cinebar 52 THX had big shoes to fill. Its predecessor, the Cinebar 51 THX was the world’s first soundbar with THX certification and was awarded no fewer than five reader’s choice awards along with many commendations from technical journals.

Putting the sound in soundbar
To achieve THX certification, the Cinebar 52 THX needed to pass THX’s demanding tests to ensure that the device is truly capable of cinema sound with a sound pressure level over 100 dB. A total of six high-end drivers in an authentic 2-way construction along with a precise 250 watt subwoofer for deep bass all the way down to 35 hertz tuned by Europe’s most experienced THX developer, Christoph Winklmeier, helped the Cinebar 52 pass these tests with flying colors.

Fully loaded feature set
The Cinebar 52 THX offers the following connections: 4 HDMI inputs and one output in the current 1.4b standard. Six additional digital and analogue audio inputs allow the device to accept signals from CD players, iPods, and game consoles.
Thanks to CEC and ARC functionality, compatible televisions and Blu-ray players can automatically control the soundbar as well. This is almost a shame considering that the soundbar comes with its own high-end remote made from attractive aluminum. The Cinebar 52 THX’s enclosure is likewise made from this vibration-resistant metal. A contemporary high-end design featuring brushed aluminum underscores the device’s high performance level and allows the Cinebar 52 to be easily integrated into any type of interior.

Technical Data:
Soundbar:
  • Frequency range: 120 Hz – 22 kHz
  • Sound pressure: 103 dB/1m
  • 2 x 25 mm tweeter, 4 x 100 mm midrange driver
  • Power output capacity sinus: 120 watts
  • Standby function: 0.4 watts
  • Video connections: 4 x HDMI-In, 1x HDMI-Out with 3D support, CEC and ARC
  • Standby function: 2 x coaxial digital, 2 x optical digital, 1 x stereo cinch, 1 x stereo jack
  • Audio formats: Dolby Virtual Speaker, Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS
Subwoofer:
  • Frequency range: 35 Hz – 120 Hz
  • Sound pressure: 101 dB/1m
  • 250 mm bass driver
  • 150 watts sinus, 250 watts (peak) power capacity
  • Standby function: 0.4 watts
The new Cinebar 52 THX is available now at http://www.teufelaudio.com.uk for £ 799.99.


About Teufel Audio
Teufel is Europe's #1 direct seller of loudspeaker systems. The company was founded in 1980 in Berlin and currently offers a wide range of premium audio products. The Teufel portfolio includes home cinema, portable, multimedia, and PC sound systems along with multiroom and streaming devices under the name “Raumfeld.” In 1996, Teufel became the first German company to offer THX certified loudspeakers, an extremely exacting audio standard for cinema-grade surround sound and today offers the largest selection of THX certified speakers in the world.

Tuesday, 26 August 2014


This past weekend saw the long-awaited premiere of series 8 of Doctor Who -- and the highly-anticipated arrival of Peter Capaldi as the latest incarnation of the Doctor.  Those two things combined translated into really big numbers for BBC America!

From Deadline Hollywood:

The Season 8 debut of Doctor Who on BBC America pulled in a record 2.2M viewers on August 23. Also, the Saturday’s 8:15 PM debut of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor in the long-running Time Lord series drew slightly more than 1 million adults 25-54. That’s a big jump from the 1.56M total viewers and 723,000 in the demo who watched the Season 7 premiere back in September 2012 — a record at the time. When added together with the 796,000 total viewers and 352,000 among the 25-54s with the 10 PM series debut of Intruders, August 23 was the channel’s highest-rated Saturday night ever.

In the U.K., the premiere on BBC One was the highest rated opening for Doctor Who since 2010:

The launch was seen by 6.79M viewers according to the overnights. That was worth a 32.5 share. Capaldi’s start lands as the series’ most-watched opener since 2010. The record opener of the modern Doctor Who series was 2005’s debut that starred Christopher Eccleston as the ninth Doctor and drew 9.9M viewers. On the low end of the scale is 2012 with 6.4M.

While some have criticized the plot, Capaldi's performance was widely hailed as "brilliant," "amazing," and "impeccable."  Jenna Coleman, who plays the Doctor's companion Clara Oswald, was also roundly praised for her strong performance.

The second episode - "Into the Dalek" -  airs this Saturday.  The teaser can be seen below.

Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings has once again been voted the number one soundtrack by Classic FM listeners.  That's five years in a row now.

John Williams' Star Wars was a close second and our favourite composer was the most represented in the top ten with four entries. Harry Potter was number 10, Jurassic Park number 7, Schindler's List number 4 and the previously mentioned Star Wars number 2.

But I have to question the listener's taste with Jaws only coming in at 31.  The other John Williams soundtracks in the list were

Raiders of the Lost Ark - 15
E.T. - 19
Superman - 26
Close Encounters - 48
Seven Years in Tibet - 57
War of the Worlds - 77
Empire of the Sun - 79
War Horse - 99

Steven Spielberg who worked with Richard Attenborough on the 1993 smash hit, Jurassic Park paid tribute to the english actor and director who he described as his 'dear friend.'

‘Dickie Attenborough was passionate about everything in his life – family, friends, country and career.

‘He made a gift to the world with his emotional epic Gandhi and he was the perfect ringmaster to bring the dinosaurs back to life as John Hammond in Jurassic Park.

‘He was a dear friend and I am standing in an endless line of those who completely adored him.’

Sunday, 24 August 2014



Really sad news tonight as acting legend, Lord Richard Attenborough, star of Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park has passed away at the age of 90.  The BBC broke the news.

The news website report:

He died at lunchtime on Sunday, his son told BBC News.
Lord Attenborough was one of Britain's leading actors, before becoming a highly successful director.
In a career that spanned six decades, he appeared in films including Brighton Rock, World War Two prisoner of war thriller The Great Escape and later in dinosaur blockbuster Jurassic Park.
As a director he was perhaps best known for Gandhi, which won two Oscars.
Lord Attenborough had been in a nursing home with his wife for a number of years, BBC arts editor Will Gompertz said.
He had also been in a wheelchair since falling down stairs 6 years ago, our correspondent added.
His family is expected to make a full statement tomorrow.



Gandhi and Richard Attenborough Win Best Picture and Directing: 1983 Oscars

patrick stewart ice bucket challenge

We've seen numerous celebrities take up the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  The original idea was to donate money to the ALS Association OR tip a bucket of ice water over yourself.  It seems the challenge has evolved into just pouring water over yourself and donating.

I'm not complaining as it's been entertaining to watch.  But Sir Patrick Stewart has read the rules and just like the Captain he played in Star Trek The Next Generation done things properly by thinking things through first.



In comparison to the other Captain from Star Trek, William Shatner goes in all guns blazing before asking questions.



**Spoiler alert below**

Khan himself, Benedict Cumberbatch adds a little humour to his challenge which was for MND. Donate to www.justgiving.com/mndassoc (Worldwide)
Text ICED55 (followed by an amount e.g £5) to 70070 (UK only)

doctor who collection

Today we're going to be treated to more Doctor Who as Peter Capaldi picks up the sonic screw driver from Matt Smith tonight in the latest season of everyone's favourite time traveller on BBC1 and BBC America.

To celebrate I thought I would show you one of the best Doctor Who collections I've seen.  A good friend of mine, Chris allowed me to take a few photos of his geek room which contains all things from Star Wars and Star Trek but mainly the room consists of Doctor Who.  What he doesn't know about the doctor isn't worth knowing.  Check out these photos.  I've slipped in there a few photos of his Star Trek ship collection too.

You can follow Chris on Twitter.

Do you have a collection you want to show the world?  Let us know and we may feature it on the site.

star wars commander


Free-to-play Star Wars: Commander lets you take over the galaxy with The Empire or command the Rebel Alliance as they strive for freedom.

Disney Interactive and Lucasfilm today launched Star Wars: Commander, a free-to-play combat strategy game exclusively for iOS first. In the game, fans will join either the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire to recruit and lead an unstoppable force across the Star Wars galaxy in epic battles to claim ultimate victory for their side.

Star Wars: Commander features the full array of vehicles, weapons and technology from the Star Wars universe. Players who rally to the Rebellion will call upon iconic heroes such as Han Solo, Chewbacca and Princess Leia to support missions for justice and freedom, while leaders of the Imperial forces will command AT-ATs, TIE fighters and Stormtroopers to gain control of the galaxy.


Star Wars: Commander also offers an original Star Wars storyline set within the Galactic Civil War of Episodes IV – VI, where “commanders” determine if it’s the Empire’s strength and relentlessness or the Rebellion’s heroism and resourcefulness that will win the war.

Players can join the battle for control of the galaxy on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch by downloading the game from the Apple App Store.
