How To Train Your Dragon 2

Children’s animated movies have an easy way of capturing the attention of any naïve little one with catchy tunes, adorable characters, and goofy plots. But then there are animated movies such as “Frozen” (2013) and “The Lion King” (1994) that have a more serious, deeper story line. How to Train Your Dragon 2 falls right into that category.

Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, and Jonah Hill are amongst many who lend their voice talents to this animated story of young man, Hiccup (Baruchel), and his best dragon friend, Toothless. Five years after the Vikings and the dragons called a truce, the island of Berk is in another serious danger after Hiccup discovers a new island with filled with mean dragon slayers. In a direct disobedience of his father, Stoick (Butler), Hiccup goes on a quest to find the enemies’ fearless leader, but he finds someone a little more delicate; his mother, Valka (Blanchett).

This movie holds a warm lesson for children who have lost their mommies or daddies, orphans with wondering holes in their hearts about their biological parents, or young people in single parent homes. The fictitious story makes those children gravitate to the film with experience and reality.

The movie keeps the love for dragons alive. The mythical creatures, magnified in 3D features, come in many different shapes, colors, and sizes for the second time around. No longer an enemy, the dragons were friendlier than the first movie and they ultimately turn out to be the heroes.

Dragons

If “Frozen” (2013) is the best animated movie of the new millennium, then How To Train Your Dragon 2 is coming in a close second, along with “Wreck It Ralph” (2012). All three movies possess the qualities of a timeless, classic animation: enchanting characters, mild humor, and life application. It’s a tedious task to involve all three conditions, but this sequel pulls it off.

4 Stars: How To Train Your Dragon 2 is a healthy balance between fact and fiction. Yes, dragons are fake. But, the key messages from the animated film is very real; a true friend will never leave your side, and that there’s true healing after losing a loved one.

Week of 3.18.13- Olympus Has Fallen

Two Words: ACTION PACKED!!!

Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, and Gerard Butler star in a heroic story about a CIA agent who pretty much has the entire country counting on him as Korean terrorists take over the White House. Eighteen months prior to the White House attack, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Butler) made efforts to save President and First Lady Asher (Aaron Eckhart and Ashley Judd) after a terrible car accident. Agent Banning was only able to save the President and watched as First Lady Asher fell to her untimely death. Banning’s lifesaving attempts removed him from the President’s detail and behind a desk at the US Treasury. This desk position probably puts him in the best predicament because he was one of the first responders to the terrorist aircraft that gunned down innocent civilians.

From the director of Training Day, it was evident why one viewer said “it was like Die Hard 2013 meets Saw.” Similar to Training Day, the movie had a dark glow. You know-that “the world is about to end” glow full of panic, chaos, police sirens, and no sign of running water and electricity. The President and his executive cabinet were slightly tortured but to see one’s man fight to save them was heroic.

This movie leaves you with ONE burning question: HOW OLD IS MORGAN FREEMAN?

Sheesh! He might out live me.

4.5 STARS: This is surely a man’s flick! But I can see the ladies getting together to watch a whole bunch of men kill each for one’s country.
