Just… why?

I’m normally pretty lenient on most tv but this was just downright evil. They made the man get pregnant, sweet little Toby dies, and they basically erase the whole Trollhunters timeline. All the hardship that everyone had to face all those sacrifices for basically nothing. No real moral present besides maybe… errr… feel bad cause your not cool? Then the repetitive “the power was inside me the whooolllle time” plot which I’ve seen a million times. Including, the new modern moral of the story “men can get pregnant too” which makes no sense… hello biology? Also they changed the words of the amulet from “to the honor of Merlin” to “for the good of all” to be more “inclusive” I guess. The movie has no point to it and doesn’t sit well with me I actually feel sick after watching it because it was so awful. Please someone get one of those mind erase things from a Sci-Fi tv series, I need one.

This movie sucked. The shows were great, friendship and monster hunting, I mean, what's not to like? Then Netflix came out with the movie. I watched it almost immediately because I loved the show so I thought the movie would be like it. I have never been so wrong. It follows the events of Wizards, with the whole Tales of Arcadia gang. First off they kill Strickler for no reason. He sacrifices himself when he tries to stop the ice titan, News flash, it doesn't work. Then they kill Nomura and Nari, again for no reason. Then to top it all off, They kill Toby!!!!!!!!!!! Toby, the main character's best friend, and the character we've grown to love dies. Then in the end Toby, no offense to him, becomes the Troll Hunter! I despised this movie. DO NOT WATCH.
