After a forest tribe of cotton-candy-colored, shock-headed trolls discover that they’re the new favorite gourmet treat for King Gristle (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), the unlikely duo of bubbly Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and worrywart Branch (Justin Timberlake) must rescue their friends from the royals’ chef (Christine Baranski).
It’s one thing to see people constantly tormented by monsters and the paranormal, but to show an hour of human-on-human torture is a bit much. Chapter 8 of American Horror Story: Roanoke centered completely on the cannibalistic Polk family, splitting its time between their unnecessary family history and gruesome torture scenes. Last week’s brief time spent on the Polk clan was by far enough, an entire episode was just lazy.
Dr. Stephen Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) life changes after a car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he looks for healing, and hope, in a mysterious enclave. He quickly learns that the enclave is at the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying reality. Before long, Strange is forced to choose between his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
