Forbidden Friendship [HTTYD]

Just done watching Dreamworks How To Train Your Dragon.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this film. I would say Dreamworks is doing great work in catching up with PIXAR in the Box Office sales and have always found their animated films to be of extremely high quality (even going so far as to write an essay about The Prince of Egypt for my degree). HTTYD didn’t really appeal to me via the trailer when it first came out at the cinema, but I guess I had forgotten the ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ rule and by-passed the movie. I added it to my LOVEFilm list sometime later and when it arrived I still couldn’t be that bothered to watch it. But… it was brilliant! The animation is astounding, but the film has a lot of what PIXAR has to a fine finesse – heart! The scene where the lead character bonds with the dragon is an absolute highlight. Amazing attention to detail, real emotion and a beautiful soundtrack. Click here for said scene via YouTube.
