Movie Feature #6 – How To Train Your Dragon
April 22, 2010 § Leave a comment
And I’ve already watched #7 and #8. Talk about being behind. I planned to do this every week starting April but didn’t get to. This is #6 as I’ve already featured movies during the Valentine’s week posts. Let’s get on with it.
How to Train Your Dragon
HTTYD is a computer-animated fantasy by DreamWorks Animation that has just been recently released (March 26, 2010) and is loosely based on a book by the same title.
The movie is about Hiccup, the son of a Viking chief, who dreams of becoming a dragon slayer just like the rest of their tribe. The problem is, he’s not cut out for it. This however doesn’t stop him from joining in on a raid (amidst his father’s refusal) and finally catching a rare dragon called Night Fury. Nobody believes him, so he goes out to find it. But upon doing so, he is unable to kill it and befriends it instead.
My only regret in watching this movie is that I didn’t watch it on 3D. It is absolutely awesome. The story is good (even though it’s a bit cliche-y). There’s an abundance of funny and quirky lines. The OST didn’t stuck to me though, so I have no comments on that.
This is a must-see for everybody. No age limit required.
