Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish delighted fans last year when they announced that their 2011 album Imaginaerum was going to be converted into a movie bearing the same name. The rich, playfully gothic tone of the music was going to be converted into engrossing, captivating visuals with a tender, heartfelt story.
While I was a fan of the album, the movie didn’t do nearly as much for me. In my review, I state, “It’s definitely something I’d recommend to fans of the band but for others it is best put on as background material.”
