"How to Train Your Dragon" -Movie Review



*****
What a great movie! Really I was surprised by the clever story, great characters, and funny dragon designs. The title made me wary of it; it sounded simplistic. But from the opening scene as the dragons capture the vikings' sheep and the character Hiccup narrated the whole mess, I was hooked!

I highly recommend this. Great film!

There once was a man named Nathan. This man was prophet like and his writing was quite excellent. His words transported their readers into new worlds, captivating their imaginations and leaving them thinking for hours after.

One day Nathan the Great was reading a notice put up by a dragon and his flaming pen. The dragon lived next door to the horrible singing dwarf that looked like John Travolta and dressed like a spider. They lived on a windy street in the land of Blovgabler. The last time Nathan the Great visited Blovgabler the dwarf spit on him, so he was careful to avoid such a creature today.

Upon arriving at the dragon's abode he wrote the thing a letter, but forgot to subscribe to any replies. So he came back the next day to subscribe to the comments.

And he was torched....

The end
[Yeah...i"m just subscribing to the comments lol]

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
