How to Train Your Dragon. A very popular film with my son and all of his mates. It is a familiar story of friendship between man and beast best categorized as a fantasy adventure. Humour is used sparingly and in a sophisticated manner. Having dragons as the central subject matter probably isn't as popular as vampires these days - but given the popularity of the fantasy genre - dragons deserve their place.
httyd2 (seriously, look at those clouds...I suppose they are just a matte but still)
I love Eret's face when he realizes Hiccup just landed on his boat to say, "We give up!" And then when Hiccup pushes Eret aside, Toothless growls at Eret, as if to say, "If you hurt Hiccup I WILL DESTROY YOU"
Especially because (SPOILER ALERT) If you've read the books, you know Cressida Cowell's final novel will unveil that one of the species faces eternal extinction... and WE DONT HAVE DRAGONS, so I'm really loving/hating the suspense, both for the final book and for the 2nd and 3rd movies.
