Goofs

A EIKI 16mm film projector is incorrectly used. Any fully trained projectionist would notice the error, that when projecting forwards, the take-up reel correctly rotates clockwise, however the supply reel incorrectly rotates anti-clockwise. Always when screening movies on a film projector, for all 8mm/9.5mm/16mm/35mm/70mm motion picture films that are not on platters, the supply reel and the take-up reel rotate clockwise when projecting forwards, and on 8mm/9.5mm/16mm film projectors, the supply reel and the take-up reel rotate anti-clockwise when projecting the film in reverse.

great
18 April 2016 | by halldors78See all my reviews

Great show, with great music and its nice to hear some songs i hadn't heard before not just play the typical ones or the typical hit bands. yea it has lots of drugs and sex and stuff like that and so did the 70's, can't understand the crying from some people here about drugs and sex and calling it a cliché, this is like it was in the 70's, and people did smoke cigarettes and did do bad things and they were thought of as cool. but i understand why the big companies started to hire just some people who could sing or could'nt sing, just do anything they want and let them write songs for them like a lot of the so called big stars today that can barely sing or write a song or play an instrument. it must have been very hard at times to control 5 guys drunk and out of their minds on drugs most of the time but still great artists and musicians that wanted to do their own thing and new things, that is what made those times so great and the music even better. but at least we still have thousands of great bands that are big but will never be as big as the bands from the 70's, but at least they are doing their own thing and get a following on the internet and through touring. but back then also a lot of bands didn't get anywhere because of company problems and inside troubles, but having a hit on the radio is probably more about the looks and stuff then the actual music itself. and yea you have to get used to the actors playing the famous people but you will get over it, they do their job well but of course they don't look exactly like the people bot close enough.

but watch this show if you want great music and a little inside look of the live in the 70's, of course you have seen it many times before both better and worse but why now relive again??
