So, my family all went to see How To Train Your Dragon 2 and there were a couple things I didn't like, like the fact that all the Vikings had Scottish accents...okay I know there might have been some Celtic Vikings but, when you think of a Viking, you should be thinking Norsemen and women from Scandinavia not Scotland!
And I didn't like how the Mom got off so easily...I mean come on! They could have thought of a better reason for her not to return home...like she couldn't find her way, she was lost, she had amnesia...something for crying out loud!
And then I was totally surprised (maybe even a little shocked) when the Dad didn't get back up, even as the boat sailed out and the arrow soared up into the air...I kept expecting him to recover.
So, I wanted to see what a couple of kids would think of the show and I had a friend ask her kids: Everett and Emma (pictured up above) and here are my questions and their answers.
1) What did you think of How To Train Your Dragon2:
EVERETT: It was AWESOME!
EMMA: I loved it.
2) What was your favorite dragon:
3) What did you think about when the Dad died?
EVERETT: I thought it was so sad. He also cried.
EMMA: He didn’t die, he got up later.
EVERETT: No he didn’t, he died.
EMMA: Does that mean he’s in Heaven
4) What was the favorite part of the movie:
EVERETT: When the two Alphas fought.
EMMA: When when Hiccup got to meet his mommy!
So, there you have it...How to Train Your Dragon2 from an adult's perspective and a couple of kids' perspectives.
Now, go watch the movie and let me know what you thought of it.
