HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON (2010)
What is so special about animation? Since all the camera angles, character expressions and body languages are fully controllable by the filmmaker, the result is all animation movies are fun to watch. So it’s very hard for me to criticize it. Thiz kind of movie depends on the whole divisions without exception. The credit does not just belong to Director. Thiz movie is directed by Disney’s “Lilo and Stitch” (2002) creators, Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders. The characters are voiced by Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Jonah Hill and America Ferrera. A Viking boy named Hiccup (Baruchel) is learning how to become a warrior. One day, instead of vanquishing the dragon as he told to, they end up being friends. The dragon character which named Toothless has a unique figure but still lovable. Yes, it’s entertaining but still on standard formula. The story relies on what I called “Zero to Hero” formula. The main character is mostly described as a nerd type and later becomes a savior for his people. The best part of thiz film is the flying scene which is so thrilling and exciting. Yes, it’s another CGI animation. Yes, it’s another feel good movie.
