5.0 out of 5 stars Trolls aren't all bad, September 15, 2001
This review is from: Troll in Central Park [VHS] (VHS Tape)
What I learned from this film is that there are good people in the internet trolling community. People like Stanley. People whose passion for floral gardening leads them to crosspost to rec.politics.socialist and alt.binaries.erotica.lesbians instead of confining their gardening advice to rec.gardening.floral where it belongs.
Trolls like Stanley are basically ok, if eccentric people who need to be taught netiquette. They are not the malicious evil trolls such as can be found on alt.trolls, alt.syntax.tactical or alt.tasteless.
Anyway, on to the plot. In this film, Stanley, a basically good troll, is driven our of the troll kingdom (alt.tasteless) by an evil troll queen. (they hate gardeining in alt.tasteless, but then again, they hate everything.) He is sent to "central park", a large, public area filled with all sorts of people. "Central Park" is obviously a metaphor for Slashdot.org. Since usenet trolls consider weblog trolls to be a lower form of life, this is indeed exile. Anyway, he befriends two children who, like most slashdot readers, are neglected by their parents far too much.
Stanley does well in "Central Park" until he is attacked by the evil troll queen who wants to turn him to stone. This is obviously a reference to the frequent "Natalie Portman naked and petrified" posts that trolls often make.
Stanley and his two young friends must defeat the evil troll queen and learn the important of focused, ontopic posting.
Do they succeed, do they fail? Watch the film and find out.
