How to Train Your Dragon

I just finished watching How to Train Your Dragon. Also, my Shift key isn’t very reliable just now.

About HtTYD, well, it’s great. I don’t particularly like the storyline, which is the basic “Little kid makes friends with one of [clan name here]’s oldest enemies, which sparks a whole bunch of weird things where the clan goes to eradicate that enemy, which attempt is stopped by little kid, and the clan becomes friends with their long-time enemies.” Also, there are a lot of lines that are first said in the start of the movie, then are reinvigorated at the end. Of course, this comes into any movie at all.

After watching it, I looked up HtTYD 2, and found that there is one scheduled for 2014. THIS IS A BIG MISTAKE!!! HtTYD is NOT a movie you can reasonably make a sequel out of. I mean, what is there that you can make a story out of? After No. 1 ends, all you can think of as an additional story is the boy zipping around on his dragon. Fun to watch?

    I love How to Train Your Dragon! Agreed, the storyline isn’t very creative, but the facts that 1) it’s about dragons and 2) Toothless is ADORABLE make up for everything the plot was lacking. But as much as I love this movie, they should not make a sequel. It doesn’t need a sequel, in my opinion.

    • I agree completely. There were quite a few lines in that movie that my little sister predicted exactly, and she hadn’t even seen the movie. And welcome back!

        That’s funny. And thank you for welcoming me back. 🙂

  2. They made a sequel out of cars, didn’t they?

  3. I haven’t see HtTYD yet. My parents don’t like animated movies (with the exception of Tangled), so I don’t see them very often. But now I might see if my library has this one. My little sister would probably like it. And it has dragons, which is always a plus.

    • Definitely see it if you can. It’s worth it. And yes, with dragons you can’t go wrong. In fact, I’m thinking of making it a posting topic.

  4. Well…the preview looks good to me. I’m about to go see the movie tomorrow (a whole week before the rest of the world gets to, ha!). If you like, I can tell you if I think it’s any good or not. That is, if you’re still of the same opinion.

    • I really hope it works. I’m rooting for it– I’m not so against it as I was in this post. Definitely tell me how it is, though– I want to know.

      • I don’t know much about it, aside from a couple previews, but it seems good. My younger siblings got to see the first twenty minutes of it, and they liked what they saw. In fact, I had a very hard time trying to get them to not talk about it and spoil the whole beginning for me. *sigh* Younger siblings… But, yeah, I’ll let you know what I think.

      • Well, let’s see… I think it was pretty good. My mom asked us if we thought it was better or worse than the first, and I think the general consensus was that it was about the same. It was exciting, and some of the animation was pretty cool. The character interaction, in my opinion, was really fun and rather awesome. Overall, it was cute and funny, like the first one.

      • Good! I’m glad it worked. I can’t wait to see it.

      • Yeah, I’m glad it worked out, too. It would have been disappointing if it hadn’t…

      • Of course.

Comment! I'll reply.
