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…
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!

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…
Dreamworks studijos vizitinė kortelė po Šreko!
the dragon was cute. typical kid movie struggle where the child doesnt believe in the same values as their parents... hiccup teaches his father dragons aren't bad etc.
Pretty, I concede. But it's a laughable unaware parody of itself and the brand of perfectly polished, soulless animation it stands for. A series of long montages dashed with oversaturated color emptiness. I'm not hunting down the sequel. (Which got nominated over The LEGO Movie, ladies and gents...)
I want to see the sequel so I've had to re-watch this one to remind myself of the story. To this day, it remains probably DreamWorks Animation's and Gerard Butler's best film ever. And just today I've found out that Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois (co-directors and writers of Dragon) are also responsible for the great Lilo & Stitch. They seem to have been gifted with the ability of producing great films about monstrous but cute-ish animals that are quite aggressive at first but end up being best buddies with their outcast human companions.
I want to shake the hand of the person who said "What if dragons, but cats?"
Really cute, but really predictable.
A masterpiece. Pitch-perfect writing, voice acting, animation, and score, all combined into a deeply poignant film that proves Dreamworks is capable of soaring to new heights within the industry.
