While staying at Laurence and Pauline Golbey's home last month, had the opportunity of watching "ZULU" on Laurence's 10.5 foot by 4.5 foot home theater screen.
It was like watching it for the first time. The Blu-Ray really popped and you could see things in the deep background you may have never seen before. What an experience.

Moe,
Watched Zulu Dawn the other night. I haven't seen it in a few years. Couple of questions. One, I read that Lord Chelmsford had a great victory at Uluni after The tragedy at Islandwana. Why wasn't he basically brought up on some type of military inquest regarding Islandwana?

And second, the amount of Zulu warriors at Islandwana numbered about 30,000? Why did only 3 to 4,000 attack Rorkes Drift?

The group that attacked the Drift was not involved with the earlier battle. They defied Cetchwayo's order of not crossing the Buffalo River into Natal.

Chelmsford ignored orders that Sir Garnet Wolsely was taking over from him and attacked to try to salvage his reputation.
