Default 'Trollhunter' - High-Def Digest Review

El Bicho has reviewed 'Trollhunter.' He say this is worth a look, but you'll be fine skipping over the non-troll moments. This Blu-ray features solid video, surprisingly strong audio, and a thin helping of extras. Give it a rent.

I'm planning to pick this one up too. Besides supporting foreign films, it's always rewarding to get a different take on the genre. Sad as it sounds, it's taken a filmmaker outside of Hollywood to come up with something refreshing and fun. Here's hoping we see more foreign blu releases like "Rare Exports" and TH!

It was very well done and i thoroughly enjoyed it. The CGI is very well done for a lower budget flick and it has a great story to boot. It's definately one of my favorites on blu from 2011, along with Hobo With A Shotgun.

After seeing it on Blu-ray, I regret not seeing it at the cinema.
I have the Norwegian release, since Im Norwegian .

Our edition has (at most times) one of the greatest transfers ever. 100% clean image, and just spectacular. But sadly its the wrong film. Most other Norwegian releases isn't close to this one. But the context of this movie should have had a dirtier looking film. But its the directors choice, and with todays home cameras, it also might be correct. But its the only flaw for me.

Otherwise its another one in a long string off good norwegian movies, starting with the rom-com "Buddy" back in 2003. (My meaning anyway). before that it was only crappy cultural pictures and theater preformance actors doing theater preformance in movies (Which I call over-acting)

Really enjoyed this (rental from netflix.) Good, old fashioned monster movie. For a 'handycam' film the HD video was great. Audio excellent too good sub workout. I thought watching the original soundtrack with English subtitles was much better than the English dub. Probably pick it up...only $16 at Amazon.

I managed to snag the original Norwegian BD before the publisher asked they stop shipping it to Denmark. It's definitely the best 'handycam film' I've seen, along with Cloverfield.
