How to Train Your Dragon ★★★★

I really really like this film. Dragons are cool in general, and this film does dragons that are.. sort of cool, and sort of cute, and it still works great. A real connection to the characters is developed over the course of the film, especially towards the main character dragon, and this really pays of towards the end as shit goes down. There are some really awesome set pieces that worked great in 3D with the added sense of scale that comes with it. Overall the look of the film is done quite well, with a nice balance between simple silouettes and good high level detail.
