Early this morning we watched a couple movies, and just to break things up a bit, I thought I'd post reviews of the movies! So, without further ado!
My Thoughts: This is a fast-paced movie with some really good special effects. However, the characters, with the exception of the captain, the co-pilot and the pilot, were a bunch of idiots. They are supposed to be highly trained scientists, and they bumble around like a bunch of amateurs! "Ooh, look, a door - let's just open it and walk inside! Oozing stuff from canisters? Let's stick our finger in it and see what happens! Let's sniff this weird gelatinous stuff! Let's carry this decapitated head into the ship and experiment on it! Let's try to touch this strange, reptilian thing that is living where everything should be dead!" Oh, lordy, lordy, lordy... I wanted to smack each and every one of them repeatedly. Two puke-drenched (yes, I threw up at one point) stars
Afterward, I demanded we watch something that would not make me puke (hey, I have a thing about self-mutilation! I can take all kinds of gross stuff... unless the person is doing it to themselves. Then I become nauseous).
So, Dmitry suggested How to Train your Dragon, saying it was funny.
My Thoughts: Dmitry was right, I really loved this adorable movie. The dragons were wonderful, especially the little ones - I wanted one of my very own! Watching Hiccup grow into himself was delightful, and the other Viking kids - and adult Vikings - were a treat as well. The CGI was amazing and wonderfully detailed. I highly recommend this fun movie to anyone who hasn't already seen it. 5 dragon-sized stars!
