Dreamworks keeps coming up more and more great family movies, and although Trolls is not quite as immersive as Sing, it has its own charm and lots of colourful 1970s nostalgia mixed in. Anyone growing up in the era will understand many of the references the Trolls and their enemies, The Bergens come across along the way.
These trolls are not the kind one fights in Middle Earth, nor are they the kind that get loose in the basement at Hogwarts. These are very different. These are tiny, happy creatures based on toys created by the Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam in 1959. Now they are their own nation, and sadly, that tiny tribe lives in a park in the center of a Bergen town, only to be harvested for a festival every year know as Trollstice. On this day, Bergens get to indulge in a feast of happiness that comes from consuming Trolls. This particular Trollstice is the first one for the new Bergen Prince Gristle Jr.(Christopher Mintz-Plasse), but the prince will never learn how to be happy, because this is also the night that Troll King Peppy (Jeffrey Tambor) gets everyone out of the captive park, and to a new home far in the forest.

This is the third movie in the Halloweentown series made especially for the Disney Channel, and since Marnie Piper (Kimberly Brown) opened the portal in Halloween II: Kalabar’s Revenge.

It is hard to believe it has been nearly a decade since many family herded their kids into the car and headed down to the local cinemas to see this first installment of the Harry Potter movies. The main players, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron Weasley (Rupert Gint), Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), and their first magical rival, Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) were all just pre-teens then, dealing with things they never dreamed of. Some were ready for the challenge, growing up with, or researching what was coming to them. Harry was the most un-prepared, yet the most powerful of them all. We saw glimpse of Harry’s miserable home life with the Dursleys. Vernon Dursley (Richard Griffiths), who is perpetually in denial about magic. His wife, Petunia (Fiona Shaw), who knows that it does exists, but would rather not deal with it, and supports Vernon fully. That leaves Dudley (Harry Melling), whom is a male version of Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
