It may not be as cleverly done as "The Lego Movie" but it has a number of features that make it an entertaining experience for all. The characters are likable for the most part and the actors do a good job of bringing the Trolls to life. Anna Kendrick is great as Poppy and her constant upbeat energy always manages to bring a smile to my face. Justin Timberlake is decent as Branch. I did feel like his character wasn't fully fleshed out but he did have a couple funny moments and he does work for the purpose of the story. The rest of the Trolls unfortunately don't seem to really catch on in terms of names and personalities. They do have good voice talent behind them but they don't really do much with serving as extra characters. They work in some shape and form but I just felt like they could have played much bigger parts because it would have made them more memorable. The Bergins work nicely as a threat to the Trolls. I like how the establish the holiday Trollstice and I also like the love between Gristle and Bridget. The overall narrative is mostly good and it does work when it comes to telling a story about the Trolls and the world they live in. I almost consider this movie to be a test to see how long you can stand a movie that features non stop happiness and musical jukebox songs. I do like the lesson about happiness and I also really like the True colors sequence and how powerful they make that moment feel. This movie does play off as if it's hip and cool which will make the movie dated but the overall feeling is so fun and upbeat that it actually works in terms of being likable. The one thing that is definitely worth looking at is the animation. It is amazing how they made everything from the characters to the colorful backgrounds and creatures feel so vibrant and charming. The song sequences almost feel like i'm watching a music video on Youtube and they are so immersive and wonderful to look at. The music features a lot of songs that have already been sung by other artists they are energetic and a lot of fun to listen to even though they don't seem to work as smoothly as "Happy Feet". The music is one of the biggest elements of the movie and I do like how the songs work greatly in moving the story forward. This is not the best movie Dreamworks has ever done, but it's likable characters, upbeat music and beautiful animation seemed to have won me over. It is possibly true that the movie only existed to sell toys, but I thought the movie was a lot of fun and I enjoyed it despite it's couple flaws. The overall goal of this movie was to make me happy and I can surely say that they have succeeded (B)

Dev S (us) wrote: Awesome documentary on legendary Arm Wrestling champion John Brzenk! I had found this one on Netflix and was happy to give it a watch. It basically covers three arm wrestlers, one who dominated the sport for 2 decades and is contemplating retirement, and two other up and coming arm wrestlers looking to become legends themselves. It's a very entertaining tale, with lots of humor and suspenseful moments. The run time on this film is perfect and I would recommend this as a good buddy film.

It is a somewhat slow movie, a "chic flick", but it's a sweet love story about older folks. And yes, I have no problems believing that a woman in her mid-thirties could fall for a man like Amitabh Bachchan, even with the character flaws shown in this movie.

Christopher P (kr) wrote: I thought it was pretty good. Overacting can be good and bad but I'm this case I thought it was great. The kids acting was poor but how does an 8 year old compete with Dunaway? I guess the production looked cheap but for a movie made in '81 set in the 50's and 60's it seemed appropriate. I guess if you believe the accounts of others, not Christina's, the movie is in bad taste. If you believe Christina in most of which she writes, which I do, it's a thrilling movie. The behaviors of alcoholic and bi-polar parents can be just as real as they are portrayed in the movie. It's very possible people who were not exposed to such behavior see the movie as far-fetched and unrealistic. Knowing first hand the life Christina said she went through, it's a powerful movie.

Gena D (au) wrote: This movie was so horrible it actually bummed me out for an hour after I watched it. It was unclear whether it was supposed to be funny or scary because it was neither. Molly Shannon carried it but was not used enough to make up for its weak plans. The intense and rapey attic scene was about the best constructed set in the whole thing. Camera work was shakey and stunts were unbelievable. Like a car clearly not sitting on a body. Poorly acted, poorly executed and overall disappointing considering there actually was a story in there. Molly, the attic and the fact that it was unique enough to make me want to know where they went with it is the only reason this gets more than half a star.
