How to Train Your Dragon

Dreamworks sure has gotten the hang of how to tell a story! This was kind of formulaic, but fun. It certainly made great use of the stereoscopy. The whole thing got me thinking about the future of 3D stereo -- and I think my main conclusion is that it's great for movies with a lot of flying, and not so good for everything else. It's interesting to compare this with Avatar.

I went to this with people who'd read the book, and they were a little frustrated with how different (pointlessly different, they said) it was from the book. My main gripe with the movie was that the ending was kind of anti-climactic -- the giant monster could have been a heck of a lot more giant.

My favorite parts were the characterization of the vikings -- their stylization was totally fun.
