  • How to Train Your Dragon 2

    How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

    Rated PG, 102 min. Directed by Dean DeBlois.

    Austin Public Library: Family Movies: Distinguished by its quick wit, scenic vistas, and an admirable championing of a loner-nerd hero, the first How to Train Your Dragon was a startlement and a seduction. Sequels usually spell the blues, or the blahs, but this one defies expectations yet again, displaying gaspingly good 3-D animation, and a real depth of emotion, too. I laughed, I cried, I longed for a pet dragon of my own. The sequel carries over the leads from the original (and Cressida Cowell’s source book series) – young Hiccup (Baruchel), a peacemonger stranded among a clan of spear-rattling Vikings, and his faithful dragon Toothless – and writer/director Dean DeBlois (Lilo & Stitch) knows he’s got a good thing going with their dynamic. Toothless is so vividly, viscerally animated, I worry a child will look askance at her own humble dog and peevishly wonder why Fluffernutter can’t fly, or at the very least breathe fire. Read a full review of How to Train Your Dragon 2.

    2PM Milwood Branch Library, 12500 Amherst
