How to Train Your Dragon

PhotobucketPhotobucketComputer-animated fantasy film about an awkward Viking teen who aspires to be a  dragon slayer.  The animation is nice and children will be entertained.  However, why do films aimed at children always feel the need to teach us something?  And if the script must lecture the viewer, it should really be something more interesting than the timeworn moral “Animals are our friends”.  Having said that, the relationship between the boy and his dragon is tenderly charming.  Although it wont win any awards for originality, their friendship sustains the film with enough heart to be worth watching.  An improvement over DreamWorks last animated film, Monsters vs. Aliens.
