Thoughts on Mountain Fever

Mountain Fever is a virus thriller that came before the pandemic. So for once I can’t complain that we have too many about a deadly virus and people being bored. Here we see the struggle to survive the mystery flu that has wiped out most of the population. Seeing how two strangers must work together to fight off a bigger threat in their world to survive.

This will mix the concepts of virus survival with home invasion to create a different level of tension, but with too many unknowns left in the mix, we will be left asking questions about the bigger picture. Keeping most of the film in the big home, shows that we can see the different areas of safety, while both sides will have shelter. This is an easy to watch virus survival movie that does everything it needs to, to create the tension the film has.

Story: Trolls World Tour starts when the rock troll queen Barb wants to take over the whole world of music from each troll kingdom. Making rock the dominate music between the trolls. Poppy the queen of the pop kingdom wants to find a peaceful solution. Believing music will bring the kingdoms together, only to learn the truth about her own kingdom, while learning about the different kingdoms choice in music.

Thoughts on Trolls World Tour

Trolls World Tour will bring the characters from the first film back to learn of the much bigger world they live in. Where different types of music are in different kingdoms, with one wanting to make the whole world like their music.

The story will surprisingly get very deep, dealing with a dominant group who have shut down others in the past. Needing to learn not to make the same mistakes as the past. The different music inclusion will offer something for everyone to enjoy even if there is a certain music you might not normally like. This is one that will offer something for the whole family to enjoy. With the non-stop music and big messaging about letting people or in this case trolls be whoever they want to be.

Final Thoughts Trolls World Tour is a family friendly music experience.
