When I first saw trailers for How to train your Dragon, I didn't think much of it. The marketoids who were selling "How to Train Your Dragon" were completely pitching this as a kiddie movie, when it is so much more. It's a shame that some potential fans might have been turned away by the early ads for this movie.
My favorite memories of this movie was the tender emotions that Hiccup and Toothless shared as they bonded. I had big tears streaming down my cheeks when Hiccup, looking away in order to seem less threatening to Toothless, reaches out to the dragon. And Toothless, casting aside his apprehensions about humans, leans forward and puts his nose into hiccup's hand with a real sense that the dragon had accepted Hiccup as a friend.
The build up of portraying Night Furies as powerful, dangerous dragons was such a great departure from the book this movie is based on. It makes Hiccup's friendship with Toothless all the more special.
The scene of Toothless drawing was absolutely adorable, and I loved the "Test drive" sequence! I think the flying sequences in this movie were easily better than Avatar's.
The music for this film is excellent, and it really helped capture the feeling onscreen. Obviously, Toothless is my favorite dragon, but I also think the Nadders are super cute. Their bird-like behavior, and noises were perfect!
Indeed, I really liked the fact that the dragons in HTTYD were portrayed as animals. No talking dragons! But I appreciated Toothless being very very smart, and seeming to know what people are saying. The scene where Toothless first meets Astrid, and gives that jealous, dismissive shrug was too cute!!
And the ending to the movie again found me with tears in my eyes. The whole crowd in the theatre cried out "Awwww!" when you see that Hiccup had lost his left foot.
But I think it was an absolutely perfect way to end the movie. You have two friends, who on their own are handicapped. But together, they help one another soar.
This was such a fun movie to me, and I'm so glad Dreamworks approached this project with intelligence, and respect for the audience. (No poop humor anywhere to be found!!!)
