How to Train Your Dragon

This is a very, very good movie. Lots of fun, excellent animation, and really good writing. Shockingly, the hero's choices don't just all resolve themselves -- even in victory, there are lasting, believable consequences for him. About the only quibble is that the Vikings have Scottish accents. Part of me is choosing to believe they converted to Vikingism for the chicks.

Also, if you've never dreamt about riding a dragon I don't even wanna know you.

now, now. Vikings made up a good part of Scotland's history, as evidenced by place names like Stornoway. And Scottish accents are just...funnier for English.

Although, I think all the horn helmets and the large flapping myths are a dead give away this film may not be uhm...historically sourced.
