I watched it last night in 2D.

I loved it!! The storyline moved quickly, and it was full of action (some parts made my heart beat a little faster!). It seems that a lot of people loved Toothless. I thought he was pretty cute, but I actually liked Hiccup (main character) more......

There was a moment in the movie that made me cry, but not so much in the moment where most might expect? Or maybe it is. But I won't give any spoilers.

Such a great movie.

What do Disney movie fans think of How To Train Your Dragon?

Great question. I loved How To Train Your Dragon movie. I think it has great animation and characters. Good for them. I believe movies like this keep Disney and other studios on their toes. It pushes the quality and creative level so other studios will make better animated movies.

I have every Pixar movie on DVD and/or Blu-ray. How to Train Your Dragon is the first (and so far, the only) Dreamworks animated film I will buy on Blu-ray. Very well done. As a previous poster noted, the movie was done by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois, the team who also made Lilo & Stitch, which is a favorite of mine. That was enough to get me to take my five-year-old son to see How to Train Your Dragon.

We just saw Dreamworks How to Train Your Dragon and I thought it was fantastic! The 3D is unbelievable and the story is heartwarming.

As a bonus we got to see a 3D trailer for Toy Story 3. Can't wait for that one this summer. The Barbie/Ken storyline looks hilarious! Ken tells Barbie he likes her leg warmers and Barbie tells Ken she likes his ascot
I have the DVD and I love this film, very entertaining indeed!

This one's kind of grown on me. HBO has been airing it nonstop over the past few months, and while the story's pretty standard, the animation and music are the best I've seen from DreamWorks. I'll never be able to get over my biggest nitpick (if the Vikings in the movie are, for some reason, Scottish, why are all of the kids American?), but this is probably my favorite DreamWorks animated film.

I am a cartoon fan in general, Disney especially.

Having said that, I loved the How to train your dragon movie. It has nice animation, nice sound, standard storyline one would expect, and most importantly - it is engaging to watch!

I didn't like this movie at all. I found it sad that the little boy had to save his village to get his father to say that he loved him. *sigh* Yeah, it was all happy in the end, but that father should have loved him at the beginning whether he was different or not. That bothered me the whole time I was watching that movie, and after. LOL

Its a brilliant movie. I'm a lifelong Dis-movie fan and always will be but I have no issue enjoying a movie from another studio. Quality is quality no matter where it comes from and How to Train Your Dragon is brilliant.

I think HTTYD was one of the best animated movies I have seen. It was a very engaging story and I love to watch it.

I would agree with previous posters that this will hopefully keep Disney its toes. Some of the movies they have been putting out over the past few years have been real garbage.

The score really is quite good, the more I think about it. Hearing it all the time on HBO has made me appreciate it more; it's up there with the scores for some of the Pixar movies from the last decade.
