this is on the short list. thumbs up or down?

Just got back from How to train your Dragon. Although most will probably freak, I liked it better than Avatar. Not fair to say I guess because I didn't care for Avatar. For a family movie, this was great. Laughed quite a few times and the 3D was done well and an added bonus as opposed to carrying the movie. I was most impressed by the very effective portrayal of emotion on the characters. The young boy at the center of it all was the best and amazing how much they were able to show with the dragon's eyes alone. The wife rates it as excellent (5 of 5 stars) and the 10 yr old said she liked it which is a glowing review in her language. Overall it was very well paced, very good character design/animation/CGI, effective use of color and mood, and just plain old funny.

Unfortunately I stepped out during this part but the wife wanted to add that the first person view of the boy and girl on the back of the dragon was amazing. She said visually it felt as though she was actually on the back of the dragon as he spun through maneuvers. She and I both feel it had a great message and that the movie was not over the top in any aspect.

Couples Retreat was entertaining. It had some pretty funny parts to it.

Gotta say I love having Netflix. What great business idea they had.

Pearl Harbor on the telly right now. Wow, what a stinker of a film. The very worst excesses of overdone CGI I think I've ever seen.

We just saw "How to train your Dragon" - very good, with a better plot than Avatar.

My daughter is begging to go see it again while it's still available in 3D.

We watched it last night. I enjoyed it a lot, but my wife and daughter thought it was just "OK" - said it was a little slow in parts.

It looks like they left it open for a sequel.
