How To Train Your Dragon - More comments

After a good night's rest I thought of more to share without giving anything away, I hate spoilers!

I think Dreamworks and the filmmakers have a hit on their hands. After seeing Monsters and Aliens and Shrek 4 at screening, the story line for "How To Train Your Dragon" was better thought out and the characters' journey were more interesting. Especially the relationship between Hiccup (Jay Baruchel)and his dad, Stoick (Gerard Butler who makes a great hunky and hairy Viking). But I think the script writer, Dean DeBlois, might have more to work with because of the book, "How To Train Your Dragon" by Cressida Cowell.

The finished scenes were really well done with the 3D and animation. I loved all the textures and details. Like I said, the story was funny, funnier than I thought it would be, but how can it not be with Craig Ferguson and Kristen Wiig in the cast. Everyone laughed a lot. I didn't expect the ending. It wasn't the perfect storybook ending which I liked.

How To Train Your Dragon

I received an invitation for a blind screening on Thursday for people ages 15-49. Luckily my friend, Annette, and I were both available to attend. We RSVP'ed knowing only that the film was a 3D animation movie by the makers of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, but took the chance to go. You can't imagine our excitement when the man who welcomed and thanked us for coming, announced that the movie was "How To Train Your Dragon"!

Annette and I giggled like school girls. It took a few minutes for us to settle down and get over the shock that we were really seeing the movie.

The movie wasn't finished yet with some parts missing the animation and lighting, but still the story line was wonderful! It was funny, fast paced, and action packed, one children will love. Gerard Butler and Craig Ferguson's voices were perfect for their roles as well as Jay Baruchel and America Ferrera. The dragons were wonderful, reminding us of our pets. A must see with your children, grandchildren, or in my case, my nephew.

I can't wait to see the finished film!
