Overlooked: Trolls

On this week's episode Jake Leary talks "Trolls" with WIC President Natalie Newman. Based on the popular children's toy, "Trolls" makes an admirable attempt to tackle heavier subjects like mental illness; though Jake isn't satisfied with the result, the film still has a lot worth talking about.

There are a lot of movies out there. A. Lot. Every year hundreds of movies come out, but few of them enter the public consciousness; these overlooked films can be exciting, moving, funny or poignant but they don't get the attention of the hottest blockbusters or most Oscar-baity art-films. "Overlooked" is a bi-weekly examination of under-appreciated films that were undervalued at their time of release, hosted by Jake Leary. The show can cover any genre, and though I only discussed movies here, any medium. Each week a new guest from the Ithaca community would be given a chance to espouse a hidden gem that they feel didn't receive enough attention. One part talk show, one part media criticism, "Overlooked" is a movie book club at its core — an enthusiastic celebration of the movies you might have missed.
