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…
Going into How to Train Your Dragon I expected a cliched story line, and the annoying voice of Jay Baruchel to drive me insane. But to my surprise the story was right up my alley, and Baruchel's voice fit the character quite well. Add in some absolutely beautiful animation and you got a great movie!
I'm hoping to get to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 later today and I'm hoping it's as good as the first!
Pretty, but more generic than I had hoped.
I don't get why Vikings have scottish accents.
Superior family fantasy fare. Thoroughly enjoyed watching it with my 2 and a half year old on a Sunday afternoon.
I am very inspired by Hiccup's spirit.
Best up side ever, you've got dragons as pets.
It took about 19 years of my life to find a movie that instills in me such an intense, childlike desire to inhabit its world. Yeah, it's full of danger, but that would all be worth it if I got to have Toothless as my pet. Watching it 2 years later, my number 1 goal in life is to be bros with Toothless. I'm only half joking.
Animierte Zeichentrickfilme werden einfach leider nie mein Ding werden, deswegen ist eine objektive Bewertung schwierig.
Die Story hat mich nicht mitgerissen, demnach ist der Film schlechter als Shreck und Ice Age! :-)
Considerably better than the lion's share of Dreamworks animated output. How To Train Your Dragon tells a story of an unlikely friendship and acceptance in a fantastical world that would (in less capable hands) seem schmalzy and heavy handed but is perfectly handled in this gorgeous looking movie.
The only misgiving I have with the film is how the protagonist and the rest of the kids all have American accents while all the adults are Scottish.
A heartfelt tale well told, beautifully animated and adorned with a righteously epic score from John Powell. Funny, sincere and gorgeous, HTDYD is a cut above the majority of soulless animated summer staples.
por ignorancia o desinterés, o una mezcla de ambos, no había visto how to train your dragon. así que @rotch, encargado de hacer pruebas con los aspirantes a blockbusters a los que sólo los más valientes hacen frente, me comentó que no sólo la segunda entrega --de este año-- era buenísima, sino que también la primera.
le hice caso a rotch: le agradezco la recomendación.
how to train your dragon es, sí, una película de ese género borroso llamado "a boy and his dog". (no taaan distinta de lilo & stitch y, para sorpresa de nadie, de los mismos directores.) admiro su guion, tan cercano a la ansiadísima redondez, a la completitud. (detalle: los gemelos conducen un dragón de dos cabezas.…
