The Troll Hunter is the story of a group of Norwegian film students that set out to capture real-life trolls on camera after learning their existence has been covered up for years by a government conspiracy.
It’s obvious the film is wildly entertaining and thrilling. Reviewers are say it delivers truly fantastic images of giant trolls wreaking havoc on the countryside, with darkly funny adherence to the original Norwegian folklore.
The Troll Hunter was written and directed by André Øvredal. It stars Otto Jesperson, Glenn Erland Tosterud, Johanna Mørck, Tomas Alf Larsen, Urmila Berg-Domaas, and Hans Morten Hansen.
Birger Vestmo of the Norwegian Broadcasting Company gave the film six out of six points, and wrote that “a new Norwegian classic is born.” He also applauded the movie for combining Norwegian cultural elements with Hollywood cinematic flair.
How Do You Know is a comedy from Academy Award-winning writer-director James L. Brooks (As Good As It Gets, Broadcast News, Terms of Endearment), starring Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd and Jack Nicholson.
The movie looks promising. I just hope it’s as good as Brooks can get, which can be very entertaining.
When I first saw the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, I didn’t understand the books because the cartoon drawings turned me off. Then I saw some boys lining up to purchase the most recent book. I was surprised because it meant boys like the book.
Now it’s a movie and I like the way the trailer looks. Real people, not cartoons, seems more appealing to me. I hope faithful followers feel the same way. The story centers on a group of middle school boys. One student named Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) is smart, a little small for his age and an old soul. He is hilarious in the trailer.
Wimpy Kid looks like a boy’s movie. I can’t imagine young girls watching this movie because it’s about boys being…well…boys.
What a stunning trailer with the sound pounding a foreboding curse. We hear Ellen Page shout “Wake Me Up! Wake Me Up!”
Yet, Christopher Nolan, director of the movie, doesn’t let us in on the whole story. Like most trailers these days that dump the whole story in your lap from the beginning, middle and the end. That is what makes this trailer so cool and inviting. We don’t get the story, just teasing pieces that barely make sense. I want to see more. Don’t you?
Parkour is a fantastic sport to watch and is very popular in Europe. The US is coming around with some Parkour competition but still lags behind.

Season of the Witch seems like a typical movie of the Middle Ages with lots of darkness and a witch for men to contend with despite having her in a cage pulled by horses. But I really like the sound editing in this film. The horse hooves resounding creates an eerie feeling of doom and death.
