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…
Fantastic animation with a big heart.

Task #16: A film you wish could be the story of your life
It's hard to discuss How to Train Your Dragon and its connection with this task without shedding a tear. My life has been filled with various up-and-downs I've doubted myself and told myself no so many times. Born with Asperger's Syndrome, I've faced my fair share of criticism where nobody took me seriously and I've rarely had any true friends in this life. This year especially I've truly doubted myself as despite starting in my college years, having a decent-paying job, and have enough income to pay off college expenses and my car, I fear my lack of…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Como a maioria, também estou me perguntando o motivo de ter demorado TANTO tempo (mais de cinco anos!) pra assistir esse filme. Poxa, que surpresa agradável. Não pensei que fosse gostar tanto.
Acho que tudo nesse filme funciona. Visual bonito e inspirado, gostei muito da cidade da Idade Média. Direção de arte de parabéns, trabalho realmente caprichado. Trilha sonora que consegue andar bem nas cenas em que é acionada, e a trama em si é uma maravilha. Não acho que seja exclusivamente infantil, eu consegui me encantar...
Quem não ficou com vontade de ter um dragão? HAHAHA Achei ótimo o “desenvolvimento”, o laço que rapidamente Soluço conseguiu criar com o Banguela. Lindo como ele se sentia realizado ao alçar voo…
I cry all the time
Holy crap, I love this movie so much!
Soars the mighty skies majestically...I loved Toothless a lot...It's the same old stuff but definitely worth a watch! Funny,awesome action scenes and just plain fun!
This film belongs to an endangered species: it's a family-friendly fantasy adventure permeated by a legitimate sense of wonderment.
This is a sweet and funny animated film that you are supposed to watch with some friends. It's a fantasy where the protagonists look like American high-school kids and the ferocious dragons are big harmless cats. It is enjoyable, and it's that kind of film that makes you feel lucky to have friends to share it with.
How to Train Your Dragon is a very entertaining and heartwarming film, it made me feel happy, and the animation was vividly eye-catching. I'm still old school when it comes to my animated films, you know when they drew on drafting boards and then brought it to animation (ie The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, and Aladdin), but there is still something beautiful in the way they do animation now. My favorite parts were when the boy was flying the dragon in the sky, through sunsets and the clouds.
I also liked the story, about a boy, named Hiccup, who showed the Vikings, who hunted and killed the dragons, that they were…
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
