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…
this film is so beautiful & the soundtrack is phenomenal, wow just everything
I think it's safe to say how to train your dragon is a fantastic film, with a great story , beatiful animation, and great voice acting how to train your dragon is a fantastic film
i saw this on a date with my 10th grade girlfriend and she broke up with me two days later
Ein schwungvoller Animationsfilm der einen mit auf die Schwingen eines Drachens nimmt, wie es bisher nur in meiner Kindheit Fuchur geschafft hat. Eine schöne Geschichte über das Erwachsen werden und die Erwartungen die man erfüllen soll und dann auf ganze ungeahnte Weise erfüllt.
Einziger Schwachpunkt ist das Casting von Jay Baruchel als
Hiccup. Ich fand seine Stimme einfach zu alt. Irgendetwas hat mich bis zum Ende daran gestört.
I skipped this film when it originally came out in theaters. The film was really poorly advertised, like most animated films, with all the childish humor in the trailers to attract the kids, and I think that was what turned me off about the film. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised when I finally watched it. How to Train Your Dragon is a solid animated flick.
I'm conflicted about a few minor storytelling aspects. Our two main characters are all well-written and well-developed. Toothless is undoubtedly adorable and Hiccup is a charming main character that all of us can relate to in one way or another. However, a majority of the supporting characters are in the film just to be there,…
I want a Night Fury for myself, please.
Hick's father upsets me sooooo much!
"You're no son of mine!"
What a horrible man! You're son leaned the different ways to influence and train several varieties of dragons including a night fury, created inventions to ride them, found the dragon hive, and he wants to tell you all about it... but no. You won't listen, you won't believe him, you DISOWN him, then lead all your people to their deaths... only then do you realize the errors of your ways. If Hick actually did something bad I could understand your actions, but HE DIDN'T! YOU'RE THE ONE THAT ENDANGERED YOUR PEOPLE BECAUSE OF YOUR IGNORANCE AND STUBBORNNESS!!!
Gah!! This movie just lost a half a star. Maybe I'll add it to part two!!
Παιδική ταινία με κορίτσι να πετάει στα ουράνια πάνω στο μεγάλο μαύρο πουλί του αγοριού απέναντι
I know I am sometimes very nit-picky with movie, but "How to Train your Dragon" did not live up to its expectations. It is a very overrated film, and personally not in my top 5 DreamWorks animations best.
When you want to transport the audience to the times of the Vikings, or any historical period of time for that matter, make sure not to get too lost in your own ego, or perhaps take a chance and give the audience something different than what they're used to, but definetely do not trick us by giving us 2 characters with Irish accents, then all the kids speaking American with modern slang. I mean, I know they had to do it this…
