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!

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…
Un po' lineare ma fatto molto bene con una storia molto coinvolgente.
Very entertaining. Likeable characters and some great action pieces, without trying too hard to be funny.
Very sweet! Too boy. Dig the dragon a lot tho and the animation, while not perrfffectly my thing, isn't atrocious. The ability stuff is handled pretty gracefully as well, from where I can judge.
A cute story in true DreamWorks spirit.
Fun little movie with great visuals, an interesting message in favor of tolerance and against war, and a good (though somewhat limited) voice cast. Some strange little plot holes - like how the other kids don't seem to have parents - but otherwise one of the best, least pop culture-influenced Dreamworks films ever.
Good but not my fav. Many people loved this movie but it was not for me.
In the running for Dreamworks Animation's best movie.
A pleasantly surprising, unexpectedly deep, and all-round excellent romp from the (narratively) least consistent animation studio around.
It is certainly a weak point of mine, but I always have to give points to a film that knows when to shut up and let character development happen free of on-the-nose dialogue. Save for some iffy comic relief and a typically unnecessary romantic subplot, this is almost certainly DA’s best work, and definitely the best I’ve seen.
Come for the inexplicable similarities to Big Hero 6 (even TJ Miller is in it), stay for the glorious, breathless depictions of flight and some legitimately wonderful twists and visuals.
Great animated movie, one of my favourites
Combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results…
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
