How To Train Your Dragon

A quick review in case you are considering seeing this move, tonight...

Pack up and family and go! I think you’ll love it!

I went to see “How To Train Your Dragon” this afternoon, in Imax 3D. Wow. Dreamworks Animation created this fun, exciting movie about a young boy named Hiccup and the dragon he befriends and names, “Toothless”. The scenes of flight and battles were amazing, but more amazing for me were the messages of the movie. Rather subtle, but unmistakable, they explored the father/son relationship very thoughtfully. Hiccup doesn’t fit in with the Vikings of his world - as one of the characters points out, “he’s not one of us”. Even Hiccup begins to doubt himself. Then, enter a Night Fury Dragon. Not only is Hiccup the first Viking to see this astonishing creature, he is the first to bring one down. But no one saw it! Hiccup takes off looking to find the fallen dragon and off the story goes! There is a surprise at the end that just sealed my impression that this was a good film. No spoilers from me - go see it!

This is clearly one of those movies that is worth seeing in the theater. I would also recommend seeing it in 3D.

There were children as young as three and four in the audience who enjoyed the movie - perhaps hiding their head a few times in the scariest battles, but overall they were fine. If your children are used to seeing loud movie-type stimulation, I think they will love this movie!

I have to run but if you're on the fence, I'm pushin' ya' over ;)
