30 Days of Film (30): My Favorite Film This Time Last Year

Yes, I am doing the list backwards. How To Train Your Dragon was my movie the first half of 2010. I saw it 3 times in theaters, and it is still epic. Ultimately it comes down to my love of children novels, as even though this is based off of a book series with the same namesake, it reminded me of a book series I read as a kid entitled My Father's Dragon. But this movie has vikings in it! And an amazing cast! And awesome Dungeons and Dragons references. I also really enjoyed how it hearkened back to the age old tale of a boy and his best friend growing up to over come adversity and have their lives enriched by it.

It is also one of the only films Dreamworks has made that can hold a small candle to the glory that is Pixar.
