The Troll Hunter

I finally was able to participate in the Sundance Film Festival and after scanning through our slim options (I now know to order tickets way in advance of you want a good selection) we decided on seeing The Troll Hunter. I'm dead serious. I expected to be midly entertained by this Norweigan mockumentary, probably feel like "I can't believe I paid $16 to see this, but at least I finally went to Sundance" and call it an experience.

I was pleasantly surprised to find it incredibly witty and clever, with several interesting action scenes, realistic looking trolls and lots of weird humor. I loved The Troll Hunter. Sometimes I think it's better to have low expectations, you're more likely to be impressed. This was definitely one of those cases. It's in Norweigan with English subtitles, which adds to its interesting factor. I'm definitely glad I went.
