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"
I knew it would be a winner right off the bat when I learned it covered both dragons and Vikings.. which are two themes I cannot seem to get enough of!
I can definitely see why kids would go ape over this film! And as you can imagine adults aren't going to let the kids be the only ones to have a blast watching this film! So yes it is a complete lovefest for this film!
It is creative, beautifully crafted and entertaining through and through!

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…
In anticipation for the sequel, I thought it was finally time to stop procrastinating and see How to Train Your Dragon. The beloved Dreamworks Animation flick has a huge following that are clamoring to get a glimpse of the upcoming sequel. Now, its biggest detriment is that the film is lacking a plot; village screw-up Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), who happens to be the son of the burly town leader Stoick (Gerard Butler), has been working his whole life to be accepted as a ‘dragon-slayer.’ Low and behold, in one of his attempts to prove himself, he finds out that the dragons are not as evil as once thought. Hiccup then sets off a chain of events that lead to a…
Great animated dream works film about dragon training(no really?).
With a story that i aplaude for this fucking money company because its one of their few films that have an original story.
It is made for children and not really for grown ups unless your one of those perkin dragn lovers.
Gana mucho gracias a la animación, que la hace visualmente entretenida y original, y sobre todo gracias a un dragón capaz de transmitir ternura hasta a los que somos menos sensibles para esas cosas. Aunque a mí los animalitos me pueden, y me cuesta mucho confesarlo.
Pero nada más, nada nuevo a pesar de tener sus detalles.
Demasiadas expectativas para una historia que a pesar de tener elementos distintivos no sigue una línea distinta de la mayoría de películas del estilo, hay exceso de emotividad y es extremadamente predecible tirando hacia el final a pesar de estar contando una historia que toca aspectos sociales y personales interesantes, como el hecho de ser aceptado socialmente por lo que eres y no…
A primeira metade de COMO TREINAR O SEU DRAGÃO funciona muito bem, mas da metade do segundo ato em diante enfraquece por ter um vilão sem muita graça - apesar de sua apresentação eficiente/impactante. Com exceção do Banguela, todos os personagens me soaram rasos, e a relação desgastada entre pai e filho (já não vimos isso em tantos outros filmes?) acaba reforçando essa ideia. Não sei se foi impressão minha, mas tem algo na dublagem original e na técnica de animação que me incomodou um pouco. No mais, o filme serve para nos apresentar a um mundo curioso que se desenvolve mais e melhor na sua sequência.
Great Story. Great characters and voice acting. Excellent animation. Spectacular music. This is one of the best animated films I have seen in recent years. Its funny, heartfelt, visually stunning. It has everything you could want from a animated film and very easily appeals to children and adults alike.
Damn I wish I saw this in the theatre.
It's quite clear what standards Pixar and Dreamworks are being held to when films like Brave or Monsters University, solid 8/10's, are described as the death throes of Pixar, while something mediocre like this is praised to high heaven for simply not being awful.
Dragons are cool. But just because a film panders to this fact, that doesn't mean it's OMFG FUCKING AMAZING XD OMG OMG BEST FILM EVER. Grow up.
Un poco típica y eso
I want my own toothless. Life's not fair.
La película menos Dreamworks de Dreamworks. La primera en la que los personajes no son meros estereotipos, el humor no es de trazo grueso y se molestan en querer contarte una historia BIEN, y no a golpe de gags, sino con eso que los antiguos llamaban"guión".
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
