How To Train Your Dragon (movie)

I went with a total of 3 moms and 9 kids to see this movie in the theater last month. Every single one of the 12 of us loved this film, it’s cute, heartwarming and a whole lot of fun. From the story of a father trying to know his son (and his son trying to know him) to the boy and beast learning mutual trust, it’s full of feel good moments for the adults. From the silly antics to the cheesy jokes, it was full of entertainment for the kiddos.

This is well worth a watch and a great movie to watch with your kids – you won’t be bored and the kids will think you’re the super cool parent that you are.

Me? I want my own dragon, darn it!

Long ago up North on the Island of Berk, the young Viking, Hiccup, wants to join his town’s fight against the dragons that continually raid their town. However, his macho father and village leader, Stoik the Vast, will not allow his small, clumsy, but inventive son to do so. Regardless, Hiccup ventures out into battle and downs a mysterious Night Fury dragon with his invention, but can’t bring himself to kill it. Instead, Hiccup and the dragon, whom he dubs Toothless, begin a friendship that would open up both their worlds as the observant boy learns that his people have misjudged the species. But even as the two each take flight in their own way, they find that they must fight the destructive ignorance plaguing their world.

    I know this is an older review, but I loved this movie. I took my daughter after talking her out of some other movie I was sure would bore me. This had decent reviews and looked better than the other big kid’s movie that was out at the time. We went to the 3-D version. Normally, 3-D does nothing for me. I have weird eyes with one near-sighted and one far-sighted, so I always thought that was why, but this movie proved that it wasn’t me, it was always the movies! This movie rocked in 3-D!

    The story was wonderful all by itself, so even without the 3D it would have been great, but seeing the dragons flying, and the water and clouds made it even better.

    What I wanted to know was did you see it in 3D?
