    Just watched U-571.Thought it was great film well acted , with an interesting and simple storyline.Surround sound effects were nice (when the sub dives , Noises when the spoons ect fall off the table ,torpedos).
    And Im also thinking of buying Schindlers list .Is it worth it?.I'v heard good things about that film.

    Pity how the yanks once again bent reality out of all recognition, but then again they did mention it in the little disclaimer at the end. Watch K19 Widowmaker or Das Boot for good sound in subs,for subs.

    u-571 have very good reviews for sound. you need a very good subwoofer


    Schindlers list is a film with a very good story but is not enterteinment but one of the nicest films if you like this genre

    I hope that it'll be cheaper than normal as it is only black & white and I'm not paying the same as I would for a colour film.

    Schindlers List is a fantastic film but a complete opposite to U571.

    U571 is pure popcorn entertainment whereas Schindlers List is much more gritty and thoughtful. It's also quite different in tone to Saving Private Ryan (even though they are WW2 films both directed by Spielberg).

    The grittiness and realism is there in both but Schindlers List is more subtle. it ain't no action film.

    Ian, you'll have to pay the full price as the film does include some colour (The little girls red coat).

    But you may get a discount as the yanks can't spell it right (color).
