Valtari Film Experiment [Blu-ray] [2013] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Sigur Ros
7 of 7 people found the following review helpful
This review is of the Blu ray version. The music of Sigur Ros stands alone and as an album Valtari is great. The concept behind this project tho' is interesting, but the filmic results are variable and I think some detract rather than add to the music. To compliment the ambience of Sigur Ros' music is no mean feat. From a technical view the Blu ray version was below par for this medium in terms of both the film transfer quality, and particularly the sound. Being a big Sigur Ros fan I had high expectations for this project(as you would), and I've got to say I was somewhat disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite Nightmare!!, 19 Dec 2011
I keep buying copies of this film in every format as they are released. The latest 3D version is as amazing as ever. Tim Burton's magical world combines perfectly the delicate, vulnerable and sinister all on the one palate. A must have in any collection. The 3D BD version is great and shows the care taken in transferring the material to 3D. 3D suits the animation perfectly. But having said that I would happily watch it in any format!
