Blu-ray Review - Visions of Europe

19 September 2011 8:42 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Want to be a couch tourist? That just got a whole lot easier thanks to Visions of Europe, out on Blu-ray from Acorn Media on September 20.

Visions is a beautifully-shot aerial tour of various locales throughout the continent, showing a variety of wonders both natural and manmade. The six-disc set seems custom-made for Americans who are unable to travel across the Atlantic, and at times it's almost too tantalizing. The aerial shots that comprise the set, though, provide vantage points unattainable to even people who have walked the streets of the locations shown.

While the shots of this 2009 series are undeniably beautiful, the narration is a little vapid, with heavily accented (according to the location) narrators giving typical spiels about the locations shown, often poorly mixed with music that drowns out the voiceover altogether. My advice? Turn the volume down on the program and crank up some classical music on your stereo instead. »
