Movie Review: How to Train Your Dragon
Hubby and I had date night the other night, which involved going to the dollar theater and the Mexican restaurant next door. The Mexican place was super cheap, and the food was decent enough that I’d go back. The dollar theater was cheap, as always, and did not disappoint.
The dollar theater is tiny, the candy is expensive, it smells like mildew, but it’s only $1.50 to get in! I love it! Nothing good was playing (ugh, the big budget waste that is Hollywood), so we went to see “How to Tame Your Dragon”. It’s a 3D animation kid’s movie by Dreamworks, where a Viking kid is raised to kill dragons. He accidentally traps one, and they learn to trust each other.
This is the main dragon, Toothless. He acted just like our fat cat Mushroom. He was so freaking adorable, I wanted to jump in the screen and scratch his widdle chin till he purred! The whole movie was really cute and funny, and highly enjoyable.
They didn’t have the typical big, sad scene in the middle where the two best friends fight and hate each other over a disagreement, which made me happy. Pixar tends to wallow in sadness with a massive depressing montage in the middle of all their movies. Don’t get me wrong, I love Pixar, but how many times can Woody and Buzz hate each other, then get back together? It’s like a soap opera!
I completely recommend this movie to anyone. It was fun, hilarious, and really well made. It has the Clever Chick stamp of approval!
