Todd's humble comments...
17 April 1999 | by (Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

"Wow!" is a 40-minute Laserdisc that was produced to showcase the THX Home Theatre Systems. As I understand it, they were only available to purchasers of THX systems. Fortunately, a friend of mine was selling these systems a few years ago, so I was able to see this disc!

In addition to several tracks of systems tests there are 3 main "Demos". The first, and best, is "Wow!"; a collection of clips from the Star Wars Trilogy, the Indiana Jones Trilogy, and Willow, with John Williams' incredible music in the background. The second is "The Home THX Audio System", which is an overview of how the system works, given by Tomlinson Holman, creator of the system. The third is "SOUNDTRACK!", an engrossing look at the creation of a final soundtrack using the opening scene of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".

I highly recommend trying to secure a copy of this Laserdisc-only release to anyone who really wants to see what their home theatre system is capable of!
