Troll Hunter
« on: October 21, 2011, 04:12:29 PM »
I saw this movie called Troll Hunter.  It was made in Norway.  It was shot similar to the atrocious Blair Witch Project - as if it were a documentary.  It was better than BWP, but still not great.  However, there were two very cool things about it. 

First, the Norse landscape was heart-crushingly gorgeous.  I've never been to Scandanavia, but now I think I've got to go. 

Second, the troll hunter asks the documentarians if they are xian.  They all snigger and say, "no".  To my surprise he replied, "good.  Trolls can smell the blood of xians."  Trolls prefer to eat xians.  Totally sweet.  If this were an American movie you know it would have been the other way around -  the damned atheists would be the ones getting eaten beacause sweet baby jesus would save the xians.
What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

Sweet. I've seen it on Netflix but just skipped it over. Time to add this to my instant queue.
