Two weeks hence will see the release of the sequel to one of my favourite animated movies so naturally this would be a good weekend to pick up a copy of one of my favourite animated movies.
Released in 2010 How To Train Your Dragon is one of the best “boy and his dog” movies that I’ve ever seen. Except the dog happens to be a dragon. And the dragon generally acts like a cat. Hiccup and Toothless become a symbiotic pair and eventually change the world with their friendship. It’s a great movie featuring a great performance from Jay Baruchel, and a fantastic score.
It was nominated for two Oscars (losing Best Animated Feature to Toy Story 3 and Best Score to The Social Network) and won ten Annie Awards including Best Feature.
With a sequel about to be released now is the perfect time to refresh your memory. You can use the links below to buy your copy and help us keep the lights on.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend!
