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…

Review In A Nutshell:
I can’t remember being moved this much since Spike Jonze’s Her; my emotions are all over the place and there are simply not enough words to justify the amazement that I had when watching this film.
DreamWorks in all of its lifespan has always been undervalued due to Pixar and Disney’s success, they certainly have brought memorable and classic animation titles like Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, and Madagascar; and having seen all of those, I can confidently say, neither of them have been able to challenge Pixar in regards to three-dimensional animation, and Disney with its captivating charm. DreamWorks seems to have already understood that competing with Disney is futile, they…
Why oh why did all vikings, except for the teenage ones, have Irish or Scottish accents? Is it because they sound more authentic that way or what? And why weren’t, the main characters at least, modelled after their voice actor or actress? How to Train Your Dragon - godawful title by the way - has an easy to digest message and looks reasonably pretty, but it never in my opinion matches the out-of-the-ordinariness of its titular legendary beasts. When I checked out what other features had come from directors Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders it all made sense; on comparing character design, they could have just as well called this film Hiccup and Stitch. It’s an observation that applies to…
BEST MOVIE EVER.
Uma das melhores animações da Dreamworks na minha opinião. Ótimos personagens, roteiro muito bem escrito e poucos clichês.
I'm not big on animated films but i liked this one quite a bit. The characters were fun and i liked the voices. A definite thumbs up
minus half a star for the compulsory love story & kudos for the b e st friendship montages
Es una película sobresaliente que toma ventaja de su ambientación, magníficos diseños de los dragones y una trama emocionante que la hace un viaje extraordinario.
This movie always makes me want to pet a dragon especially night fury. Come on, he's so adorable. I love the ending btw
A beautiful story about the more sensitive side of human nature. The children who care more about the animal and environment than they do destroying it. Definitely, a movie perfect for its time. It also shows how being weak can be a strength and caring for the things around you can ultimately benefit you even when you are originally judged for it.
Emotional, dramatic & beautiful
How to Train Your Dragon was a surprise for me, a big one actually...The concept is so cliched and predictable...but it's so well done...It's done almost PERFECTLY ! I was invested in the relationship between Hiccup & Toothless.... A LOT more than I could think.
I haven't seen the film in 3D (It hurts my eyes), I've seen it on TV three times, but never from start to finish, and I've just saw it on Netflix and I was more invested in it than ever *-*
One of my favourites. Friendship and love.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
