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.

Happy Royal Wedding Day.

William and Kate 29th April 2011

An abundance of footage, photos, news coverage and media to follow…

As promised! What a momentous day of pomp and ceremony as William and Kate became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. After watching the footage, I feel very proud to be British on a day that went off without a hitch and had some very nice touches of flair and elegance that showed that these two, despite the titles and privilege, are just the same as us commoners. The beaming smile on Catherine’s face and the uncanny (Princess Diana) modest, humbling look on William’s showed they are just like you and me.

The whole day was wonderful but the highlights for me have to be the initial reaction of the crowd as the couple left Westminster Abbey, the emergence onto the balcony at Buckingham Palace with a couple of kisses, the thunderous fly by of WW2 bombers and the drive-by in the Aston Martin as the couple left Buckingham Palace complete with tailing balloons and William’s helicopter buddies giving a fly over from above. Great to see the country united and celebrating a wonderful day for Britain.

It should've been me!!
