Trolls album description:Justin Timberlake is the only big star, besides Gwen Stefani and Zooey Deschanel, who sings the most part of the soundtrack. Can't Stop the Feeling! is his biggest dance hits of the latest years. In it, everybody dance & this feeling is about music inside – it sounds as if nothing better happens at the moment with you, so you start to dance. Extremely moody song, bright & saturated with life, as Justin always makes.
First of all, this is a musical, where everybody sing. Second, it is about good trolls, not the ones you used to know from films like Hobbit or other fantasy creations. Originally, trolls were nasty race living in their world and they were called Jötunns, the positive synonym to trolls. They were bad and angry because one of gods forbade them to enter in their real world Asgard from the Earth. Originally, some of their race representatives should be defenders of Earth during the Ragnarök, to fight against god’s attack and to cease the fire end of our planet.
As you can see, they are of North mythology, often Scandinavian. In this pretty animation movie, nothing left from their original destiny or fate nor even from their look (just google Jötunn and you will understand). Here they are singing-and-having fun creatures of bright fairytale world, where everybody are happy. The Sound of Silence by Anna Kendrick is maybe the only serious creation in the entire plot, and everything else is just never-ending fun. But its lyrics, you know, were written by Simon and Garfunkel in 1964 and here they sound only as a cover. The opposite is True Colors by the already mentioned Mrs. Kendrick, which is interspersed with fun lyrics to support one of the protagonists to perform something he thinks he couldn’t.
Overall assessment: 2 out of 5 for constructivism and 5 out of 5 for amusement. Reference: Find more about Trolls on IMDb, Dreamworks
