How to Train Your Dragon
One adventure will change two worlds
As the son of a Viking leader on the cusp of manhood, shy Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III faces a rite of passage: he must kill a dragon to prove his warrior mettle. But after downing a feared dragon, he realizes that he no longer wants to destroy it, and instead befriends the beast – which he names Toothless – much to the chagrin of his warrior father
I wish this was my autobiography.
“Stop trying so hard to be something you’re not!”
Cats are perfect.
Please don’t misunderstand. Dogs are frequently wonderful. They can be sweet and adorable and affectionate and altogether grand. But dogs also carry with them a whiff of desperation—their need to be loved is often charming but sometimes exhausting. Like a good-natured but overly forthcoming friend, you enjoy their company but find them overly communicative; they forget that some things are best left unsaid. As Mark Twain wrote, “If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow.”
Cats, meanwhile, know no sin as they operate under the Nixonian imperative that their actions are definitionally above reproach. They outpaced mankind on the domestication front, habituating, though not…
I previously reviewed this film and gave it 3 1/2 stars which is accurate. I'm posting this review for my 2yr old son who absolutely loves it. It's the first movie he's shown a lot of interest in so his review is as follows.
"Whatcha dragon moomie yep?" Whatcha dragon moomie hahaha"
Dracarys! – Daenerys Targaryen, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lord of the Seven KingdomsKhaleesi of the Great Grass Sea,Breaker of Shackles/Chains,Queen of Meereen, Princess of Dragonstone (For the se7en god’s sake girl in one year or two I have to put a full paragraph of your titles)
Everything starts with a narration moving slowly to a storm of dragons; fire and flames, and screams of terror and many women cry of fury and strength by men against winged beasts in the skies of Berk, the most extraordinary Viking land, and all that is narrated by a simple wimpy kid named Hiccup. With a combined name of your personality; you like and care about him…
May has been a pretty bad month for me as far as the uh, quality of films I have been watching. I've been sifting through the bottom of Woody Allen's catalogue and my attempt at the 30 countries in 30 Days challenge left me pretty bummed. Out of the 13 films I managed to watch my average rating was barely above a 6/10. Needless to say I was ready to chalk up May as a lost month. That all changed when I decided to (finally) watch How to Train Your Dragon. It's sequel is coming out next month and I figured it was about time to finally give the original a shot…
One of my Favorite Films of All Times
Sometimes we enter a movie expecting the same old cliches and the same old recycled story realised in breathtaking animation just for the sake of enjoying it in three dimensions (The poster tends to confirm this even further). Even after the presence of all such traits, How to Train your Dragon easily ascends the steps to cinematic perfection. That is it's surprising achievement.
It begins with an exciting introduction to the town, it's people, their way of living, the important characters and of course the protagonist who constantly battles dilemmas in order to survive in a world he does not belong to (He is not really a viking, you see).
dont buy the hype, dragons are lame and will always be lame
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON is by all means a wonder of a film. Technically ambitious and breathtaking, creative and exhilarating. Powell's score is top-notch and the animation is drop dead stunning. In terms of the actual story, it is a bit cliched, but that's just what you should come to expect from anything studio driven. The characters are all a lot of fun, especially our two heroes who make one of the greatest pairings in film history.
Fun adolescent-minded romp with plenty of heart, overcomes some of its contrivances through spirited voice performances and some silky smooth 3D, put at the service of some superbly beautiful visuals. The dragon fighting sequences will take viewers to giddy heights of exhilaration, but the boy and girl flight through night skies on the befriended dragon is simply breathtaking (move over Aladdin!). Recommended.
Hipo, el debilucho hijo de un gran vikingo, deberá mostrar su madurez y hombría matando a un dragón. Sin embargo al momento de tener a uno a su merced, comprende que sería incapaz de matarlo, por lo cual decide perdonarle la vida y convertirse en su amigo.
Una película que cautiva a todo tipo de público con un mensaje universal, como el respeto a los animales, y una historia grandiosa acompañada de un inolvidable y entrañable dragón.
Con esta película Dreamworks dio un golpe de autoridad a Pixar. "Cómo entrenar a tu dragón" llegó a las pantallas para convertirse en un éxito comercial gracias a la aceptación de la crítica y el público.
Estuvo nominada al Óscar a mejor película de animación en el 2010 pero al final fue la maravillosa película de "Up" la que se llevó el premio. No obstante es una de las mejores películas de animación de la historia.
This movie is Pixar good. Best thing Dreamworks ever made.
Pests. Pets. Whatever.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Achei muito linda a animação e a história não decepciona também.
Tinha preguiça de ver por achar overated, mas realmente é o que dizem ser.
