If you love rock music, you probably have Pink Floyd’s, “The Wall” in your collection on vinyl, CD or both. You may even have a live concert video. It’s truly an all-time classic experience. The music is so timeless, I never tire of listening to it.
Well, there’s a new version of the film out, and if you have a high-performance home theater, it’s a great way to show it off! The film is called “Roger Waters, The Wall.” It is available on Blu-ray disc for about $18. While I do not want to spoil it for you by giving away any of the details, I have to say it is one of the most engaging movies you will ever see.
Here are three compelling reasons to buy this film.
Most of the film is shot with the Red One camera.
For the majority of the film, the picture is just stunning! It takes you through some of the facets of Roger Water’s life that have been impacted by war in a way that will almost bring you to tears.
The stage set up for this concert will dazzle you from a visual standpoint with its myriad of special effects that go on throughout the concert.
Those of you lucky enough to have a 2:35 widescreen front projection theater system will love this concert! One part I found amusing were the pans of the audience. Most of the members of the audience were not even born when The Wall was first released, showing me this music crosses generations.
Dolby Atmos and Dolby TruHD
If you have followed much about Dolby Atmos, it’s a totally new, immersive surround sound format. Just imagine The Wall in the best sounding surround you have ever heard!
The audio is done as well as the video where some sections just had me grinning ear to ear as I sat in our Atmos theater enjoying it. There are even a couple of sections that will startle the heck out of you, but I’ll not let in on any of those as the surprise is just so much fun.
Overall, I highly recommend this film. It’s easily one of my favorite live concert films of all time. If you don’t have Atmos or widescreen at home and would like to explore it, feel free to contact us or visit one of our stores. We’d be happy to help.
