How To Train Your Dragon

We went to see How to Train Your Dragon in the theater on opening weekend. My son loved it. I have to say I definitely enjoyed it too. I can see why it's been at the top of the movie charts for several weeks now.

Hiccup is a skinny little want to be viking, who's trying to please his father. When Hiccup wounds a Night Fury with one of his inventions and goes to look for it the adventure begins. He doesn't have the heart to kill the dragon, and names it Toothless, and goes about inventing a way to fix its tail so it can fly again.

How To Train Your Dragon has a wonderful story line, and plenty of action to keep you on the edge of your seat, it's one of several 3D animated movies premiering this year.

Shrek Forever After 3D

We went to check out Shrek Forever After on opening weekend, and my son really enjoyed it. We weren't sure what to expect. We loved the first two Shrek movies, but we were a little disappointed in the 3rd one. The fourth Shrek movie is definitely worth checking out this summer!

In this final Shrek chapter, the ogre makes a deal with the smooth talking Rumpelstiltskin and when the deal goes wrong, he finds out what the world would have been like if he wasn't in it.

In the twisted version of Far Far Away, Shrek and Fiona have never met, and Rumpelstiltskin is king. Ogres are being hunted, and his friends are in danger. Will Shrek and Fiona fall in love all over again and share love's first kiss before it's too late?

Premiered in theaters May 21st.
