Movie review: How to Train Your Dragon

I’m getting contemporary with my posts on Black Gate: a review of a movie that came out on Friday! Watch out, because next week’s post will also be a new movie review. (Easy to guess what it will be.)

How to Train Your Dragon has gotten some glowing reviews.

Mine is not one of them. Read the dissenting opinion here.

I’m not fond of comic fantasy in general, and when it comes to CGI movies, the “not Pixar” curse continues at full effect. How to Train Your Dragon is better than most computer-animated films, but this is not saying much.

Oh, wait . . . Godzilla! Godzilla! Yeah, Godzilla! (Sorry, really can’t get myself over that wonderful news.)
