Quite Simply the BEST
As a die-hard Commodore 64 and Amiga fan from the UK, it would have to take something monumentally good and extraordinary for me to rate this 10 out of 10, but From Bedrooms delivers. The movie is packed with nostalgia, more than any other film I have ever seen, and begs the watcher to play it again and again - each time discovering more. Everything you would hope for is covered, and more, with two-and-a-half hours of pure nostalgic pleasure.
ZX Spectrums! Commodore C64 and the Commodore Amiga feature in this epic journey; from the dawn of the bedroom coder, and those incredibly long type-in magazine listings; leading to modern gaming on the Playstation and PC. From Bedrooms is very historically accurate with facts, and doesn't try to hype myths and stories, but presents everything matter-of-fact and from the people who made it all happen. As UK film-makers, the team guide the story mainly in terms of UK development, and focus closely on the aspects of making computer games which shaped the course of history.
Gracious Films have truly delivered a breathtaking Movie, an order of magnitude better than I was ever expecting, and something which any fan from that era would love. It also makes a perfect gift for a best friend on Birthdays and Christmas, so why not order a number of copies and share your discovery to all your friends.
