Best Things About the Film How to Train Your Dragon

I cant help it, I LOVE this movie. After the movie, I stay smiling for at least 10 minutes. If you haven't watched it yet, GO AND RENT IT! As for the rest of us, we can look back at what made this film so great. So, lets go back to this animated world and see why we loved about it.

The Top Ten

1 The Breathtaking Soundtrack

This movie wouldn't be half as fantastic if it weren't for the soundtrack - LydiaS001

John Powell is legitimately a magician - ReinaDAmore

Yep soundtrack is just amazing and unparalleled. "Forbidden Friendship" the best of all. Everyone just hear it. Its tune and everything. "Test Drive","Romantic Flight","Coming Back Around","This Is Berk" and "Where's Hiccup" are other exceptional tracks. They just bind the plot, situations and rhythm of the movie. Forbidden Friendship scene was also incredible. Certainly movie was full package. It is certainly in my list of top 3 animated movies - divphygamer

After watching the movie, the only thing that goes through my head is John Powell's epic soundtrack. I love it. Best thing about this movie by far.

2 The Ending

Sad and wistful, yet, sublime and touching - ReinaDAmore

amazing. thank you booklover1 for making this list! I love it! the ending may not be my favorite because there is so many good things about this movie and alought is on this list! if you haven't seen it then get it! - 2234

There's so many things I could list about why I love this movie so much, but the ending is definitely one of the best things. "We have... Dragons. " - keep-me-posted

The ending was one of the greatest animated film endings ever. - booklover1

3 That Toothless Is So Cute

I love toothless. All the other things are fantastic too but he's so cute. Every time I see him I smile. I had a tough time deciding what was better, the sequel (has more cute toothless), or toothless. Still can't wait for the sequel.

I love the way at the beginning Toothless is a feared creature of death and destruction...Ten minutes later he's a cute pet/friend forever.

OMG! he is the most effing cute thing I've EVAR SEEN! EVAR! I want him as a pet! =D - theTwister

Toothless is so darn cute one look into is eyes and you are hooked

4 The "Forbidden Friendship" Scene

Because, let's face it, this is the scene that won us all over at the theater. - keep-me-posted

The soloist's whispery voice puts goosebumps on your arm

The forbidden friendship scene and the ending and the soundtrack and the sequel which I've seen twice are all so wonderful to good for words I cry every time I see it I cried during the sequel I have Every
Song on my iPod I've seen the T.V. series countless times and I can't wait to see 3 in 2016 I will die when it comes out if I can't see it on the first day

5 The Visuals

Even without 3D, the visuals are amazing. - booklover1

6 The Plot

Starts off a little slow but really picks up pace. - booklover1

7 The Flying Scenes

During the "test drive" scene, I almost always get chills when Toothless dives down, and brushes his wing-tip against the water! The soundtrack for that scene is even more epic! I highly recommend that you look it up! (it's called "test drive. ")

I think that this should be higher with the AWESOME soundtrack! I mean, wow. Just wow. I can't help but smile at that moment when Hiccup throws away that tail cheat-sheet and does some EPIC manuvers with Toothless! But this is basically the same as 'The Breathtaking Soundtrack', so it was hard to decide which one to vote for. But really, they're the same, and the music would ALMOST :) be nothing with out these scenes, and the scenes would be nothing without the soundtrack. Get my point?

8 It Will Have a Weekly Animated Series

In 2012, Cartoon Network will air a new TV show based on the movie - booklover1

9 There Will Be a Sequel

The sequel will be coming out on June 2014 and, Hiccup is gonna be 18 years old in the second film!

In 2013, Dreamworks will release a sequel. - booklover1

The second movie was awesome!

Hiccup will be 20... and what a mighty fine 20 year old he will be... especially without his left leg...
