Andy Russell –  “I just finished watching this [MoaSA]… I meant to watch 10 minutes as I have a deadline for work tomorrow (I’ll have to wing that now) but it was bloody awesome and I loved every minute… thank you just so much for this film, you must have put your heart and soul into this and from me and every other speccy nut I can’t tell you how much we appreciate this. I’ve sent £25 your way to the paypal address in the email as some small token to support your efforts. I genuinely can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a film this much and I was gutted when the credits rolled. You sir, rock!”

Neil Wright – “I’ve watched it. What a joy! I didn’t want it to end. I loved the Speccy loading screens for the chapters and the topics of conversation were really interesting.”

Warfado – “Bravo Andy! What a speccy nerd masterpiece. We really feel you’re one of us on this magical ride to our youth. We feel you, when get little in front of such legends in the interviews. After all they’re our heroes, our Santas, who provided us so much adventures and pleasure out of a cassette box. Those were the days, thank you for taking me back to the most wonderful years of my life again for 2 hours.”

James Shade – “Sat there with a grin on my face the whole time – loving it. Great to see what life was like inside the Spectrum industry whilst I was busy saving pocket money to buy games and magazines!”

Neil Davies – “My wife is not happy with you as the film changed out Saturday afternoon plans! Lol. Love the film, enjoyed it from start to finish (and then back to several parts again). A lot of happy memories and familiar faces. I’ll salvage what’s left of Saturday afternoon – if the Mrs is still talking to me 😉 .”

Steve Meert – “Wonderful film and I really enjoyed it… fantastic work and it brought back some very fond memories.”

Eddie Evans – “I’m watching it now, and loving it, brings back some happy memories.”

Chris A – “Brilliant film. A wonderful way to spend two hours, my jaw frequently open!”

    I bought this on the recommendation of a fellow speccy fan and I can’t say I was disappointed.

    It is a great trip down memory lane and it is fascinating hearing about the spectrum from some of the key players who made the ZX Spectrum the legend that it is today.

    This video is a must for all retro gaming fans.
