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
“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 wish this was my autobiography.
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).
Tok jo. Aranyos, nem butacska, a vegen meg a mamiSarkany epic volt.
How to Train your Dragon doesn't really bring anything new to the table, it's formulaic, and it's genuinely a good film. In a way, it's a more significant accomplishment than I've given it credit for, because a film with this plot could have easily gotten a bit convoluted or too ambitious for its own good. It is sincere in its moments that impress as well as the moments that fall flat (I'm not a fan of all of the film's humor, for example).
This is predictable, but comforting in that way. It's nice. I guess this is what people who watch generic and predictable romcoms feel inside.
I appreciate this film as a well-constructed, solid piece of animation. Watching it…
We all want a Toothless but I think I deserve one the most.
Tot i que "Lilo & Stich" em va encantar, no sé perquè fins avui no havia vist "How to train your dragon"... En tot cas, l'estrena de la segona part i les bones critiques llegides a Letterboxd m'han fet descobrir aquesta maravella de l'animació.
Although I love "Lilo & Stich", I do not know why I have not yet seen "How to train your dragon"...Anyway, the good reviews on Letterboxd and the premiere of its sequel, make me discover this wonderful piece of animation.
