The Greatest Showman – Review

WOW WOW WOW – what an amazing film, a film that brings people from all walks of life together through music and dance. Human equality at its best. I wast expecting to be so moved by the film, from start to finish i was captivated by jackman’s beautiful voice – as well as good looks! not to mention the gorgeous yet talented Zac efron ( though i’d say he’s more of an actor than singer) together in one scene at the bar – i just wanted to get in there and get on the bar with them!.

such a feel good, fun, moving movie, if your a fan of moulin rouge, mixed with a bit of grease an les mis then this film is for you – cannot wait to get it on dvd and dance and sing in the comfort of my own home 🙂

Plex Media Server

Plex is an excellent media server. It can organise  media on your server or computer and stream to any device with the plex app installed within your house. Not only this you can stream on the move or anywhere in the world and share with other users.

The best part for me its ability to record / organise terrestrial  aired TV or Movies with Netflix style covers and menus.  It will record an entire TV series and even remove any commercials.

I have mine instead on a dedicated ubuntu server. Check out the below link for information guide

Sink the Bismarck!

Sink the Bismarck! is a 1960 black-and-whiteCinemaScope British war film based on the book The Last Nine Days of the Bismarck by C. S. Forester. It stars Kenneth More and Dana Wynter and was directed by Lewis Gilbert.[4]To date, it is the only film made that deals directly with the operations, chase and sinking of the battleship Bismarck by the Royal Navyduring the Second World War.[5] Although war films were common in the 1960s, Sink the Bismarck! was seen as something of an anomaly, with much of its time devoted to the “unsung back-room planners as much as on the combatants themselves.”[6] Its historical accuracy, in particular, met with much praise despite a number of inconsistencies.[7]

I recently watched this film and I thoroughly enjoyed it. All though it’s and old movie the effects feels like you are there on deck on some occasions.

I discussed this film with a WW11 historian and he has an autograph of pilot who sank the ship. His name was John Moffat and unfortunately he is no longer with us.
