How to Train Your Dragon [Includes Digital Copy] [4K Ultra HD Blu-ray/Blu-ray] 
This Steelbook is absolutely stunning, much like the movie. Beautiful animation, wonderful story and characters and the music is spectacular. One of the best animated movies in the past decade. Highly recommended.
How to Train Your Dragon is the latest from the stable of Dreamworks, but apart from the animation style, you'd never know it.
How to Train Your Dragon is the story of Hiccup, a Viking who feels out of place since he's not a fan of killing the dragons the Viking's world so revolves around in. But, when Hiccup captures the rare Night Fury Dragon and inadvertently injures it, the two become fast friends and attempt to bridge the gap of understanding between the Dragons & the Vikings. It may not sound like much, but things are deeper than they may seem here, and they are 3 reasons you need to go out and watch this movie right now.
1: Casting: Having seen Jay Baruchel as a geeky character in the film Fanboys, this film only solidifies for me the fact that Baruchel makes cliched characters feel real & brings traits out they wouldn't have otherwise, and this fact is very evident here. The same is true for the rest of the cast. In Shrek 2, Larry King was wasted in a long-running and painful transvestite joke. Here, Craig Ferguson is perfect in the role not only because he's Scottish, but he brings the appropriate mix of eccentric leadership needed for the right-hand man of Gerard Butler's character, who is also well cast. The same goes for the rest of the cast with the possible exception of Jonah Hill, who always feels out of place in almost every movie he's in.
2: Visual Effects & 3D: Now this may because the Viking environment hasn't been portrayed much on screen before, but the film is stunningly beautiful, and that's only reinforced by the 3D which is used better than Avatar in some cases, especially in the case of the flying sequences.
3: The Emotion/Uniqueness of the Film in Animation Today: The story gives way to many emotional moments in the film, all of which are played perfectly. And, not to give too much away, but at the end of the film something happens the to main character that was not only shocking to me, since I'd never seen something of its magnitude done in animation period, but to me it was also one of the most tear-jerking moments, especially in relation to what it does to the relationships & similarities between Hiccup & his dragon in the movie.
Overall, how do you train your dragon? With charm, love, understanding, amazing visuals & stunning 3-D flying sequences. This film ranks up there with Pixar's best, and if I had any criticism towards the movie, it would be the fact that it's made by Dreamworks, and with their quality lately, you don't have high expectation entering this film. Nevertheless, How to Train Your Dragon gets a fire-breathing 5 out of 5.
Bought this even though I already owned it because it was 3D and just as cheap as the regular Blu-ray but the oldest loves to put on the glasses and watch this movie the only drawback is he wants to get too close to the tv for the 3D effects! Would definitely recommend for an older child who’ll get a kick out of the glasses and special effects. And it’s not too bad for the parents to watch over and over in 3D either!
Vikings don't take guff. Guff slides off Vikings like omelets off a non-stick skillet. Throw a hunk of guff at a Viking, and he'll snort out a chortle before batting it away with his massive battle-ax or billowing beard or mighty breath.
Nosirreee, Vikings take no guff. Unless, of course, it comes in the form of … dragons.
Alack, the village of Berk has a dragon problem. Every now and then, a flock of them descends from the sky to snatch a nervous sheep or two or 20. It's a ba-a-a-a-d situation, particularly for the sheep, and the Vikings—as guff resistant as they are—can't quite figure out how to make the dragons go away. Even the great Viking leader, Stoick the Vast, seems at a loss to shoo away these pesky fire-breathers and save their jittery sheep. Every now and then, he gathers his bravest warriors and plows through Scandinavia's coldish waters in search of the dragons' home nest (or hive or condo or whatever) in the hopes of giving some guff of his own. The only things he returns with are more holes in his boats.
Of course the only thing Vikings like less than guff is quitting. So they wage their eternal war on the dragons with gusto. That's bad news for Stoick's gangly, grace-averse son, Hiccup. The lad's sure that if he managed to off a dragon he'd get a girlfriend, make his father proud and maybe not feel quite so geeky. But, as everyone in the village reminds him, Hiccup's about as capable of killing a dragon as that "Pants on the Ground" guy was of winning American Idol.
"You are many things, Hiccup," his father tells him. "But a dragon killer is not one of them."
That doesn't stop Hiccup from trying. So during one particularly frenetic dragon attack, Hiccup fires off a homemade snaring weapon and seems to hit a Night Fury—the most mysterious, elusive dragon of all. The next morning he goes into the forest to see if his "catch" is still there, and sure enough, it is—its limbs tangled and tied and, for the moment, incapable of showering guff on anyone.
Hiccup takes his knife out of his belt, walks toward the terrible beast and prepares to deliver the death blow. He raises his hand, and—
Well, whatever happens next, you know what doesn't. I mean, the title of the film isn't How to Kill Your Dragon, is it?
