Re: How to Train Your Dragon - Blu-Ray Review

Thanks for the review! My wife and I really liked this one when we saw it in theaters. It was pretty amazing in 3D. One of the few films that I really thought the 3D was worth the extra money spent. I picked my copy of this up and am hopefully going to have enough time to watch it this weekend!

Keep up the good work all you Home Theater Shack Reviewers!!!

Re: How to Train Your Dragon - Blu-Ray Review

I agree. The commercials looked good, but I figured it would be ok. Me and my girlfriend went to the theaters to see it, and couldn't believe it. I was totally blown away with how great the movie was. Don't let the G rating turn you away. This is one of those greats like UP, but this one is more action packed and fun.

10/10

Re: How to Train Your Dragon - Blu-Ray Review

I got this movie when it first came out on disc and I agree with the 5 star rating. There is one part where Hiccup had a close-up shot and you can see his hair moving ever so slightly with the wind. It just doesn't quite fit well since Butler has an accent and Baruchel doesn't but the characters were just amazing.

A friend of mine was one of the graphic designers for this movie. I still need to see it.

I have to say this movie is pretty fantastic. One for the grown-ups and the kids to enjoy. I would put it on par with Kung Fu Panada.

Re: How to Train Your Dragon - Blu-ray Review

Can't say anything about BR release but the movie itself was very well done and I agree with OP, I tend to like it more than slapstick KFP - not big fan of Jack Black in general...
Like Avatar, "How to.. " was worth the extra charge for Imax 3d version. Must see if you have kids or have kid in you

Re: How to Train Your Dragon - Blu-ray Review

Kung Fu Panda was a fun movie but this was just a better movie overall and one of the few 3D movies that I really enjoyed and felt was worth seeing in 3D. Some will probably think that I lost my mind but I really think it was a better use of 3D than Avatar (which I also loved)
