HTTYD2_Theatrical_Poster[1]HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON-2 IS WONDER-FULL :)))  Best seen in 3D–because there is flying/playing/fighting action and you want to be close-up to the dragons as mush as possible.  This sequel has even more colorful & beautiful dragons than the first Awesome film, where Toothless was the main dragon and humans feared dragons.  This second film shows us how they advanced to playing with and domesticating dragons (in a mutually good way).  The dragon babies are the cutest!  You must be dragon-friendly to watch.  The animation does more than justice to this film, especially when we see many types of dragons, who are like friendly puppies and lovable creatures with fangs and open eyes and huge smiles.  HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON-2  (HTTYD-2) is a Must See Dream Come True 🙂 And a great bonus is that HTTYD is a trilogy, loosely based on a novel.  Who knew?  There is a video game out too!

In HTTYD-2, Hiccup + Astrid are dating.  They literally are a perfect match!  HTTYD-2 has sad moments too when we think we see Toothless drown, but he doesn’t.  🙂 And the father sadly dies by Toothless, who is put under a Dragon Spell  😦  to turn against Hiccup, but he eventually snaps-back & rises as lead dragon (though smaller in size compared to other dragons, like Hiccup is smaller than his father, and other Vikings, yet they are the Bravest Leaders compared to all).  Hiccup lives up to his father’s legacy, after his father dies, and after not knowing his place in the world.  Hiccup justly becomes chieften because he saves all with his strong beliefs and risky actions–once thought insane.  Toothless stands up against the controlled Alpha Bad Dragon and wins against evil threatening all dragons.  And on a good notes, Hiccup reunites with his found mother, who has been saving dragons in a dragon paradise sanctuary for 20-years.  Her presence is nurturing and strong.  She teaches Hiccup how to unleash more of Toothless’s power, who she calls a rare breed.  We see where Hiccup gets his Spirit!

HTTYD-2 is eye appealing (again) with a great story (again).  It displays a good vs evil Battle this time to protect the peace for all dragons and the Viking village of Berk.  HTTYD-2 is a Huge Adventure with all the same adorable, fun, and daring Viking friends we see in the first film and an enemy named Drago, who has a dragon army.

In the end, the dragons are freed and a statute of Stoick (the father) is built.  Hiccup and Toothless visibly stand different, almost taller (definitely prouder) with their postures to show more maturity as the new leaders of their village of people and dragons.  HTTYD-2 is Sooooo Gooooood!!!  Stay tuned for HTTYD-3 in 2016 🙂


RIO 2 Brings It: RIO 2 Is An Amiable, Animated, Adventure (AAA)!!!


RIO 2 Is a Wildly Funny + Entertaining Adventure !!!

Hope you don’t miss RIO 2, it’s Fun 4 All! RIO 2 takes place in the Amazon Rainforest and it’s Wildly Entertaining. Fantastic Story!!! 🙂 Love the writing, excellent 3D effects and animation work!!!

The first movie takes place in Rio De Janeiro with the 2 Love Birds, well … actually 4 including the 2 “Rare” Humans that save them. It includes a lot of exciting Brazilian culture mixed-in with funny good times, hilarious friendships, and eco-friendly smarts. You have to see it! So how could 20th Century Fox make it any better?

All the characters are charming, Jaime Fox’s bird character with the bottle cap for a hat is so CUTE!, The birds who dance shaking their tail feathers and Tracey Morgan’s Bulldog … Cute!!!–except for the bad guys but they have merit in doing their part well!!! The main characters are loveable truly with sweet personalities from many cultural backgrounds acting as a team to bring about a carnival talent show, giving us many RIO 2 light fun interludes of wild musical “talent”. Home-run again with RIO 2.

Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway, as Blu and Jewel, are wonderful macaws. They believe they are endangered and the only one’s left of their species, but they encounter their flock in pursuit of saving the Amazon RainForest. It’s Awesome + The dances and songs are elaborately witty too! I don’t mean to sound stuffy …. I wuved it!!!! The colors were bright and the jokes Sooo Good set in an WONDERful environmental plot to Save Trees, Birds, and all living in the Wild Amazon Forest.

I believe in preservation and conservation and also fight for our environment among saving people, which I saved one person literally this week from a speeding car seconds from hitting and killing the person and I will be attending a conference due to a fellowship to bring about environmental solutions tomorrow. RIO 2 is enjoyable for all: heroes and anti heroes like yourself. It’s a blessed creation filled with artistic value and wholesome entertainment with many good lessons on friendship, staying together as a family & being and acting good to nature like animals and trees who have families and give us so much love and goodness that we need to protect them 🙂

I pray RIO 2 brings good fortune to the Amazon Rainforest. I wish that the creators and, or producers can give money from this sequel to helping to protect the endangered pink dolphins in the Amazon River and any other causes in the Amazon bridging RIO 2 the movie with reality.

As an environmentalist, RIO + RIO 2 are one of my favorite animated films to date. I hope all of you take your children and family/friends to see RIO 2, if not to see Jesse Eisenberg as the blue macaw with a fanny pack. He’s so amusing, love the characters he plays, and the human good counterparts are also my favs here because they truly save the day and they are only 2 people. Hint, hint, be good to the environment, nature, animals please and they in return will give so much more love to you like in RIO 2.
