HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON

how-to-train-your-dragon

In the vein of “Shrek,” “Madagascar,” and “Kung Fu Panda” comes this cute movie set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons. Based on the book by Cressida Cowell, the animated comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges he and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view. Some of the dragons are a little scary for youngsters, but the one Hiccup hooks up with is a beast of a gentler nature. It’s a good commentary to not take everything you see at face value, and look a little deeper for the real story.
