  • But it’s important to not give up hope, and that message is something that will always make me keep coming back to the movies, and it’s a quality of movies that are lacking I would say in many children and family films today

      The 2010 animated family made film “How to Train Your Dragon” was in one word, delightful. The variety of characters, to the graphics, and story line, the movie was entertaining and perfect for a movie night with the family.

      Hicup is the hero in this movie, a frail teenage boy in a town filled with dragon fighting Vikings, Hicup wants to be just like them and is always trying to come up with new inventions to help to slay the dragons that terrorize the town. But his inventions end up being duds and he hurts the town rather


      than helps it. But on one night when the dragons have raided the town, Hicup tries his new inventions and hits one of the toughest of dragons, a night fury. No one in the village has done it before, and no one believes Hicup did either since the night fury took off into the woods. But Hicup finds him, helps him and learns the dragons weaknesses in order to befriend him. Eventually his father, the toughest Viking in the village, allows Hicup to begin to train with the other teenagers to be a dragon slayer and because ...

      • of his new friend in the night fury, he surpasses the other teenagers. He also saves the village from a dangerous dragon that has been dormant for years. In the end, Hicup unites the town with the dragons and saves the day.

        This is clearly the type of film that can be called one with positive moral values and a good understanding how even the most unlikely of characters can be the hero. Hicup can very well be the mascot for many young children out there who may think that their efforts of being outstanding and make

        a difference, and finding that maybe not everyone believes in them. But it’s important to not give up hope, and that message is something that will always make me keep coming back to the movies, and it’s a quality of movies that are lacking I would say in many children and family films today.

        What really makes this the type of family film that everyone can enjoy is that it shows how determination can help an entire village. And the never give up and not judge a person or creature by appearances. Because just like Hicup and the night fury.
