Went with Laura and her friend Kyla to go see How to Train Your Dragon last night. It was actually a pretty good movie. Even though the Vikings in it had Scottish accents. Not sure why. But aside from that, it was pretty awesome. I mean, first, it was about dragons and Vikings and all sorts of awesome stuff. It was really quite funny. And dangit I like older-kid kid movies!
I'd have to say that my favorite character is a toss-up between Hiccup (the main character), Astrid (the main girl character) and Toothless (Hiccup's dragon). Hiccup, because he's endearing in that totally dorky kinda way, and I liked his personality and his sense of humor. Astrid, because she's your typical independent-but-still-sweet heroine. And Toothless... well, I'll show you a picture first.
I've always been fascinated by dragons, but Toothless takes the cake in the world of creatures that don't exist. He's just so... epic! In lack of a better word, he's just so badass about everything. Yet at the same time he's the most adorable thing ever 'cause he's very catlike. And the toothless smile that got him his name? Just heart-melting.
I know, I'm overanalyzing movie characters. Make fun of me if you will. But it was a good movie. And the soundtrack is pretty good too, good instrumentals. I might have to get it.
