Tonight I made the excellent decision to watch How to Train Your Dragon.
I'm one of those people who despite being non-religious and non-superstitious tends to feel very emotionally connected to a lot of my dreams. Dreams may not have any literal significance (as in, they do not foretell things), but they are powerful. My dreams have given me ideas for stories I want to write. And sometimes, something will come up in a dream which I decide to try in real life.
Last night, I had a bunch of really bizarre dreams, one of which featured a couple of Dreamworks characters, included some from How to Train Your Dragon, as well as Rise of the Guardians (which I really, really want to see). I have been meaning to see HTTYD since it came out, but never got around to it, despite how good everyone said it was. But this dream was like a kick in the butt, you know? It got me in the mood to watch it, so I did. And I am so glad that I did! It was a really fantastic movie. Gorgeous animation and beautiful soundtrack, plus a really sweet storyline. If you haven't seen it, definitely at least consider it. It's not a Disney movie, so they aren't shy about discussing death or using words like "hell" and "damn"; it's not a sugar-coated fairytale where in the end everyone walks away unscathed. Overall conclusion: Two thumbs up from this blogger.
