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…

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…
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…
2nd viewing of this masterpiece of a 3D movie, and better than last time I watched it. The Blu-ray 3D disc has a quality that seems impossible to surpass, and so much better than the 2D version. The richness in color and deep resolution of texture and movement, with no ghosting or lag, make the plasma technology in my 65 inch TV really stand out. And with 7.1 Dolby TrueHD surround sound, this experience you cannot get from download or streaming. We really, truly need Blu-ray, folks! 9/10
Klassische Heldenreise und nicht weniger klassischer Vater-Sohn-Konflikt. Ich fand den Film ganz okay, verstehe aber nicht, warum der so gehypet wird. Vielleicht muss ich den noch einmal sehen ...
Hiccup. Khaleesi. The real mother of dragons.
Animation Sunday 2015 #14- How to Train Your Dragon
From the studio who brought you Shrek and Kung Fu Panda with the former Disney directors who provided us the adorable and underrated Lilo and Stitch comes possibly one of the best animated films released in the past five years. It features some phenomenally crafted CG animation in DreamWorks standards (particularly its creature designs and backgrounds), features stirring flight sequences that I dare say have not been matched in all of animation since The Rescuers Down Under, has a likeable and relatable protagonist that pretty much is the animated character that possibly closely fits my personality (man I wish I had a pet dragon right now), John Powell's most emotionally stirring…
Dreamwoks' best movie yet. It has heart, compelling characters (both humans and dragons), an exciting story, good explored relationships and conflicts (both among people and between people and dragons), good action sequences, funny scenes, a beautiful message and a perfect beautifully allegoric ending. The animation (specially the character design, besides the main dragon) is not very good, but it's a minor issue. Too bad Toy Story 3 was also realeased in 2010 and thus it wasn't the best animated movie of the year, because it's better than anything animated realesed from 2011 to 2014. I want a dragon right now.
I was pleasantly surprised by this 5 years back. I only wish I saw it in 3D. Cuz, whoa. Fantastic score too.
AS IN WOW
Demasiado simpática y original como para no amarla.
Chapó por la parte técnica de esta película. La historia, aunque empieza plagada de tópicos, acaba volviéndose algo especial y digno de ver.
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
