Movie Review – How To Train Your Dragon 2

After the events of the first film; the small Viking enclave of Berk is full of life, commerce and dragons. With dragons being faster than boats, the townsfolk of Berk can explore new lands at a blistering speed. Our heroes Hiccup and Toothless, while out exploring, run across dragon trappers who tell rumours of Drago Bludvist. Drago is a maniacal pirate that is trying to raise a dragon army. Hiccup, the reluctant heir apparent to become the next chief, tries desperately to escape his destiny; with Drago and possibly war on the horizon, Hiccup’s decisions will save or condemn his village. how-to-train-your-dragon-2-trailer-07122013-112023

Movie Review – The Croods

Meet Eep (Emma Stone). She is the type of adventurous teen that has caused grey hairs in parents since the Stone Age. Her overly protective father Grug (Nicholas Cage) has the purest of intentions, but is essentially keeping the family hostage in their cave.

There is a difference between living and surviving, and the Croods are surviving, barely.  Continue reading “Movie Review – The Croods”


Of late, I noticed that our video collection is skewing more to the DreamWorks side of animated movies instead of Disney/Pixar. That’s not a slight against any other animation houses – it’s just that my 2-year-old seems to like Puss in Boots and How to Train Your Dragon more than others. To be fair, we’ve run Wreck-It Ralph and Cars by her, but she seems to like the other two better. So it’s no surprise that I took her to a screening of DreamWorks’ The Croods on an early Saturday morning, and what did she have to say about it? “I liked it.” And you know what? I liked it an awful lot, too.

MOVIE REVIEW – Puss in Boots

Puss in Boots

I have to admit first and foremost that I’m a cat person. I have a couple at home and have had cats in my life for every day with the exception of college life. So considering they’re always around you have a tendency of picking up on the little traits that are unique to cats and that only a cat person would pick up on. Considering that Puss in Boots is probably my favorite character in the Shrek series of movies, I was looking forward to this film. But did it live up to my expectations?
