How To Train Your Dragon Trailer 2: Scottish Vikings, Dragon Whispering

No Comments

Being semi old and crusty, tough and gristly, I remember the good old days of animation, all Disney, when about all the detail you really got in a scene was the shaded apple or the reddish hued nose of an alcoholic dwarf. Things have changed. Watching the action in Dreamworks second trailer for “How To Train Your Dragon” is a wonderful lesson in depth and how to really fill out an animated world.

“How To Train Your Dragon” is about a guy that finds his true calling isn’t killing dragons but understanding them. He’s sensitive. It stars Gerard Butler (Scottish Viking), America Ferrera, Craig Ferguson, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz Plasse, Kristen Wiig, Tj Miller and Jay Baruchel as the dragon whisperer named, ah, Hiccup. It could still be good. Have some faith. “How To Train Your Dragon” starts this March in the 3D.

Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.
