From and makers of the incredible From Bedrooms To Billions, here is the aspired sequel - The Amiga Years! - featuring the story of a very beloved computer, the Commodore Amiga. As a die-hard Amiga fan, it would have to take special for me to give this a high rating, and this product delivers. The Movie is a little less packed than From Bedrooms, a little slower in pace, so that people who have never heard of The Amiga will be able to enjoy this and find out that the computer is all about. Great detail has been taken to get the facts straight, and to interview the people who made it all happen, conducting 100s of interviews and flying all over the world, translating nuggets of Gold for us all to enjoy.
The story of The Amiga may be too vast and way too epic a story to be able to cover in a few hours, but the Gracious team have done an amazing job once again to condense volumes of stories down to very easy bite (byte?) sized pieces. From the story of the designing stage, through all the years of success in fields such as Games, Multimedia, Image Processing, Video Processing and Music production, and the constant reinvention of the Amiga and its fight for survival in the modern world. The Amiga will always be special to those who get to know the machine, and this Movie aims to be less UK focused than From Bedrooms, to bring you stories and tributes to the Amiga legacy, from fans everywhere, and from the people behind the scenes.
Of all the clips and reviews and movies I have seen in the subject of The Amiga, this one covers the subject with the most love and dedication, and I came away feeling almost as much gushing nostalgia as the From Bedrooms To Billions Movie. The makers don't try to top the original From Bedrooms and make it even fast and more packed, instead they tried to make the very best film they could make, from all sides, and I must say after a while to digest this film, I feel this is genuinely the BEST Amiga Movie on the market today.
