Trolls (2016)

trollsposter3“Hey, I know it’s not all cupcakes and rainbows, but I’d rather go through life thinking that it mostly is instead of being like you. You don’t sing. You don’t dance. So gray all the time. What happened to you?” – Poppy

Number of Times Seen – 1 (29 Dec 2016)

Brief Synopsis – After years of hiding from their enemies The Bergens who wish to eat the, the Trolls hiding place is discovered and the Princess Poppy must go on a journey to free her friends.

My Take on it – This is a film that I actually had no desire to see at all until we needed to find something light to watch with the kids while they were off of school.

I actually liked it much more than I expected because of AND despite of the fact that it felt like an episode of The Smurfs, just with different colored characters.

This film has some great elements within it that can appeal to both kids and adults and can be entertaining for the whole family.

Loved the music of this film because it helps evoke the cheery elements of the film and even make them more poignant!

Bottom Line – Fun film that has elements for both children and adults.  Felt a bit too much like a Smurfs episode tho.  Great musical accompaniment which helps to keep the cheery elements of the film more poignant. Recommended

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – When the Trolls escape from Burgentown in the beginning, they use wooden Trolls to disguise their homes. These wooden Trolls resembles Thomas Dam’s original Good Luck Trolls toys the film is based on. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy
