dragons steal the show

Fire breathing creatures existed once upon a time and now they have been never great before. With a soul stirring tale and some terrific animation directed by Chris Sanders and Dean Deblois distributed by Dream works Based on the book by Cressida Cowell and co written by Will Davies tells the heart touching tale of a young Viking who teaches a lesson that dragons are not meant to be harmed. When we all heard of dragons in the past flicks like Dragon Heart, Reign of fire, and Dungeons and Dragons they were fierce. Here is the different case. The skin is toned down and the scaly thorns on the back are completely reduced. Giving a cartoonish look to the scary dragons is a different approach and finally one can say that dragons were never so fierce. A 3D treatment is all it deserved and delig...

A highly entertaining visual treat!

Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is a sarcastic young Viking who wants to be "cool" and demonstrate the strong and fearless Viking traits, but he's scrawny and doesn't fit in as a dragon-battling Viking; and as a result isn't anything like his dad, an intimidating and fearless Viking warrior chief, Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler).

Against the better instincts of his father, he is allowed to enroll in a dragon-killing class with the other young Vikings, including Astrid (America Ferrera) a beautiful young Viking girl that Hiccup has a crush on. In a desperate attempt to be noticed by both his Father and Astrid Hiccup actually manages to hit a dragon with a lucky shot, but of course no-one sees him - and more importantly no-one believes him. Desperate to prove himself to all Hiccup goes looking for...

How to Train Your Dragon review

Hiccup is a cowardly by trying to fit in. His brave and strong father, Stoick the Vast, insults him for being so clumsy and causing trouble. Hiccup caught a dragon, a Night Fury that he named "Toothless," and discovers the real nature of this misunderstood beasts. This is a prime example of not judging a film based on a trailer. Unfortunately, I missed the 3D version, but nevertheless found the experience breathtaking in terms of animation, score and the story. It's excellence is evident from the awards it garnered and nominated. It's a story of maturation, father-son relationship, expectations, forgiveness, ending wars and trust. A few lines from the picture: Hiccup - "Everything we know about you guys.... is wrong." "We're Vikings. We have stubbornness issues." Stoick - "Either ...

Deservedly the second best reviewed film of 2010

About halfway through this movie, I literally paused the DVD and just had to realize how incredible this movie is. HTTYD is a not only a strong entry in the animation genre, it deserves to be held up as one of the best films of the year. The story is simple enough - an unlikely friendship builds between two supposedly sworn enemies. While the fact that it's a human-animal pairing may cause some to wince due to the potential schmaltz factor, this story creates a friendship that's more along the lines of Old Yeller rather than Marley and Me. There are some strong themes to this story involving peace, love, friendship, courage, and trust. Add in some truly breathtaking visuals (I'm disappointed I didn't see it in 3-D when I could) and a soaring score by John Powell and you have evidence that...

Fun for the whole family

It’s been unfortunate to see DreamWorks pull away from the things that made there early films great. They created smart films that were great for kids and adults thanks to such great imagination. But recently, they’ve chosen to go and follow the formula for any children’s movie. How To Train Your Dragon brings back the originality and imagination we want. I achieves much more, however, than just bringing back what we miss from DreamWorks. This is there UP. While retaining the charm we want, it goes in a different direction than Shrek or Bee Movie, This is the most mature film they have ever made.

It follows a pretty simple story, and one that can easily be transformed into a same old, same old, kids movie. A community of Vikings live to hunt the Dragons the terrorize their village, onl...

How To Train Your Dragon Review

Many years ago when Toy Story debuted in theaters, computer animation had officially become a new form of film making. Not surprisingly enough, film companies immediately followed suit in order to generate their own success story on a financial scale. Some were good, some were bad, some were just plain forgettable, and this spectrum couldn't be any better exemplified by the streak of films left by Dreamworks. So last year when I saw Fantastic Mr. Fox in theaters, that was the first I saw of the trailer for How to Train Your Dragon. I didn't think much of it at the time since I thought it was likely going to be another film to hold the kids off until Toy Story 3 arrives this June. But when the film came out in theaters and I was checking Rotten Tomatoes one day, the reception I saw for thi...

Best Animation of 2010 thus far

Welcome to the world of “How To Train Your Dragon”, where Vikings rule and slay dragons to show their strength and dominance. The newest animated release from directors Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders is sure to be a favourite for people of all ages, not just children. Unlike many other films, it has the ability to combine an air of playfulness with an action packed adventure while tugging on your heart. This combination is one which so many films struggle to achieve, let alone animated films. Hiccup ( Jay Baruchel) is a black sheep in his Viking hometown, and his father, Stoick (Gerard Butler) has no problem telling him so. It is a Viking’s duty to slay dragons, so when Hiccup captures one, instead of killing it, he befriends it. The dragon, which he names Toothless, becomes much like a p...
