Yesterday we slipped out to see How to Train Your Dragon. Such a cute, cute movie. Here’s a quick synopsis: Basically there is a Viking village where everyone but the lead boy speaks with a Scottish accent (scratches head…not sure how that happened, but I digress). Anyway, this tiny, remote, tough little village is being terrorized by dragons. One boy, not particularly brave, strong or a team player, takes down one of the most mysterious dragons of them all, using an invention he created. Thus begins his adventure and his dragon education. I was especially proud of how they handled the ending. It went a direction I don’t think many films are brave enough to travel. Bravo for the film-makers. Yes, I’ve left out a lot of things because I don’t want to list any spoilers, but suffice to say, the story is solid and entertaining. Far better than Clash of the Titans. If you have a chance to catch it, by all means see this film. It’s well worth the money.
