    It’s really good and adorable when hiccup and toothless gets a strong bond that’s unbreakable even when it was during a fight he stocked by his side proving his theory about dragons and Vikings can live together was so epic

    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.

    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?

    Dreamworks' Home Run hit

    Posted .

    For a long time, Pixar was the king of the digital cinema world. With movies like the Toy Story franchise, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Monsters, Inc., they seemed unbeatable. Dreamworks had it's moments with movies like Shrek and Kung-Fu Panda, but this was the first film of theirs to truly have the kind of emotional yield and yet same excitement and fun-factor of those Pixar movies, even surpassing most of them. As far as the 3D transfer is concerned, it looks as good as it did in theaters, no visual artifacts and really gorgeous colors. The audio sounds fantastic too, getting full use of the 5.1. The extras unfortunately are on the DVD portion of the combo, there are none of note on the Blu-Ray, which is unfortunate because this encourages Dreamworks to keep putting out releases in this manner with sub-1080p/720p content of extras. I'm not sure why they didn't just make it a dual Blu-Ray set with the extra DVD, they certainly could've charged for it. But no matter, this is a must buy for those of you with 3D TV's. (Any scene with "the Nightfuries" is a great one to show off your (system.)

    I was so glad when I saw a new, special edition DVD + blu-ray on Best Buy's pre-order list. I never got the original DVD + blu-ray pack when it came out in 2010 or 2011. This movie is a great ride for kids and adults alike. The movie does differ quite vastly from Cressida Cowell's first book in the "How to Train Your Dragon" series, though. However, all of the changes that were made for the movie worked extremely well. So, if you're a fan of the books, at least give the movie a try. The cast is great. Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, and the rest of the cast is perfect! The story is quite moving. It's about people simply learning to accept each other as they are; strengths come in all different formats. The score by John Powell is fantastic as well. If you enjoy this movie, I also highly recommend the wonderful series that followed this movie, Dragons: Riders (and now, Defenders) of Berk. Highly recommended.

    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!

    A Good 3D Release

    Posted .

    This is a fun, clean film for the whole family to enjoy. I leave this at 4 instead of 5 stars only for the fact that they didn't include a separate 2D Blu-ray disc in the pack (as the 3D disc only contains the film and no bonus content). They did include a DVD copy of the film, and that disc does contain some bonus content, but not all of the bonus content that is available on the 2D Blu-ray disc of the movie. The other downside to this 3D disc is that, since the movie is able to be played in 2D mode, when you do view the 3D version, the brightness hasn't been compensated for (it usually is in most standalone 3D discs), so the movie does appear a bit dark when watching with 3D glasses unless you manually increase the TV's brightness and contrast levels. It looks fine when you watch it in the 2D mode, though. Those few things aside, the level of detail and the rendering of the film otherwise look gorgeous.

    First in a trilogy; Not a fluff story

    DreamWorks films are typically as complex as Pixar films; i.e. not just shallow fun. There have been three films, a couple Christmas specials, and at least one animated TV show featuring this Viking/Dragon setting and characters. I now prefer to own 3D film versions when possible, but had previously bought the regular (2D) BluRay for this film. When the 3D version went on sale cheap, I decided to double up and get it. You should note, however, that if you want all three films in 3D, there is no US 3D release for the third/latest, but it is available as a UK version which is region free and will play in US 3D players. This 3D version (first film) is combined on a single disc with the 2D version and there are no bonus features on the disc (so I'll be keeping my older 2D-only version with BFs). I didn't check the DVD that comes with this to verify it has the BFs.

    Awesome 4K Upgrade

    Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.

    I've seen this movie a ton of times in 2D and 3D bluray and thought it looked great already but the added detail and sharpness of the 4K version definitely makes it even better and look even more realistic with higher resolution and HDR. And it was a great price too, which made the choice to upgrade to watch on my 4K tv a no brainer as well. It looks noticeable better than HD version on both streaming in 4K on Apple TV and my Panasonic UB820 4K player.

    I'd seen the original How To Train Your Dragon several years ago, in the theater when my kids were younger. I always hesitated to buy it on disc because of the price, but I was in Best Buy on Black Friday and found the movie on 3D Blu-Ray for an insanely low price, which I couldn't pass up. I bought three copies of this movie, plus three copies of How To Train Your Dragon 2. The total for all six discs came to less than $25. Unreal! Best value I think I've gotten this Christmas shopping season. Thank you!

    A great story, told with a great 3D effect

    Posted .

    Let's start with the 3D. The 3D effects are stunning. Without a doubt, this is the film as it was meant to be seen. The way the dragons move through the sky and the action really makes an impact in 3D. This was a film that I originally saw in 3d. Seeing it again, I appreciated the countless details in the models and background. I think the biggest impact of these digital films is that there are so many details in the backdrops that can draw the eye. In post-rendered 3d movies, the effects of the 3d are muted somewhat by the out of focus on the backdrops. The story is as I said earlier, timeless. It's a classic story that I'll enjoy showing off to my nieces and my friends during the holidays for years to come.

    How to Train Your Dragon is a beautiful movie in terms of both visuals and story themes, and the new 4k presentation infuses even more life into the visuals through HDR. If you are considering an upgrade to the 4k version of this movie, this beautiful glossy steelbook (at a similar price point to the normal 4k edition) does the movie justice in terms of packaging, and should be a no-brainer.

    My 5 yr old daughter is obsessed with dragons mainly from watching the "How to train your dragons movies". Since this one came out way before she was born we didn't own it yet. Down side I've had to watch this to many times since we purchased it.
