Mummy Mummy I Want A Pet Dragon Too!



How To Train Your Dragon.
Not a review.
Yes yes, NOW only I watched it.
After the WHOLE WORLD oledi watched it.
Reputation kaput.
HMPH.



Wow, a Dreamworks animation that is actually pretty awesome
Where did THIS come from?
All eyes were on the Toy Story 3 / Shrek 4 smackdown.
Suddenly THIS flies in and surprises everyone.
Now THIS is how you do it, Dreamworks.
First Kungfu Panda, now this,
You better start looking over your shoulder, Pixar...



DRAGONS!
I love dragons.
They fly, they spit fire, they eat people,
Eh, why the one here look so cuddly wan?
Ooooh quite cool also.
WAH so many different dragons!
I must collect them all!!!



Oooh, VIKINGS!
WITH Scottish brogues!
Vikings AND dragons! WIN!
No stupid American accents here (ok, maybe except the kids)
And no annoying characters either!
And NO stupid pop-culture spoofs also!
(I think they're saving them up for Shrek 4)



Ok the story is REALLY predictable.
Boy is different, does not fit in to town,
Tries to kill a dragon: fail.
So he catches one and trains it instead.
And then saves the world, and gets the girl.
Almost exactly like Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.
Except with DRAGONS and no meatballs.



But the execution here is MUCH MUCH better.
The dialogue is good, the voices are good,
The action is good, the animation is gorgeous (watch it in 3D, folks!)
And what about that awesome final battle, huh?
And oh, of course... last but not least,
THIS ONE HAS DRAGONS IN IT!!!
Dragons: WIN!



Mummy mummy, I want a pet dragon also.
But not one that is so cuddly.
MY dragon needs to be BADASS,
RAZOR SHARP TEETH AND CLAWS!
FIRE AND ACID SPITTING ABILITIES!
FEARSOME ROAR THAT WILL SCARE AWAY MAT REMPITS!
And of course, it has to be toilet trained,
And must learn to sit, to roll over, to fetch...
And I'll call him.... Squishy.
And he will be MY Squishy!

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I still haven't watch this and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs yet.

It DOES make me feel better actually. HAHA! :p

Pixar's probably sweating bullets at the mo'.

The reason this movie's SO awesome is probably due to the fact that it's directed by Chris Sanders! :)

Pt: Actually, I don't think Pixar's too bothered. They've always done their own thing anyway...

Kim: yeah, Kungfu Panda was ok except for Jack Black. But at least Dragon doesn't have annoying characters like that...

But yes, Pixar ALWAYS PWNS. :D

Sylvia: I personally think little of Kungfu Panda (by the turnout, or rather lack thereof, at the box office for the 2nd. one, many agree) but dragons are freaken over-the-top AWESOME!! Besides, Toothless is ah-dorable. <3
