How to train your Dragon and............Megamind!!

Okay I decided that I would sort of review these two movie: Megamind and How to train your Dragon.

We watched Megamind about 2 weeks ago and How to train your Dragon we (Finally) got our own copy of even though we watched it like *mumbles* 5 months ago. *ducks head in shame* Yes I know slack but anyway here's my review: To start with Megamind: Well,  as i said we watched it about 2 weeks ago and it was very good.  Plot: Megamind and Metro-man come ton earth as little babies. Metro-man ends up in a posh house growing up posh and stuff. While Megamind ends up in the city prisons. He gets sent to school where he once again finds Metro-man and everyone thinks Metro-mans awesome. (even though he's not). After a time Megamind realises that maybe it's destiny to be bad so he gets ent back to prison for shall we say: Being bad. The next scene opens up with the warden checking on Megamind who is in the City Prison once again to say that he has a present from Metro-man which is a watch. What the Warden doesn't know is that the watch is from Minion Megamind's Minion. And it changes his apprence so he looks like Magamind and the policemen try and lock him in his room again and Megamind is hiding behind a chair and he quickly snatch's the watch and locks the 3 people in and cnahges his apperance to the Warden's. Meanwhile Minion had kidnapped Roxanne Richi reporter and thought to be Metro-man's girlfriend. Metro-man is having a museum opened in his honour called the Metro-man museum when a Megamind informs him that he has Roxanne. metro-man hurrys to where Roxanne yells they are. But they aren't actually and Megmind hits Metro-man with a ray gun supposedly killing him. and that's all I'm telling you.   *Evil laugh* The best quotes are:  
[answering a cell phone] Ollo? 
Minion: Uh, it's "hello", sir. 
Megamind: Oh... Hello?
[to Minion]
Megamind: Like that?
Minion: [gives him a thumbs-up
2# Use the spray!
[Minion uses a can of chloroform spray, but it doesn't work]
Minion: [checking the can] All out, sir.
Megamind: Well, use the forget-me stick!
Minion: Oh, right! 
3# Metro Man crashes into the observatory, but finds no one present]
Megamind: [from projector] Over here, old friend! In case you've noticed, you've fallen right into my trap!
Metro Man: You can't trap justice! It's an idea, a BELIEF!
Megamind: Even the most heartfelt belief can get corroded over time!
Metro Man: Justice is a non-corrosive metal!
Megamind: But metals can be melted, by the heat of revanche!
Metro Man: It's REVENGE, and it's best served cold!
Megamind: But it can be easily reheated, in the microwave of evil!
Metro Man: Well, I think your warranty's about to expire!
Megamind: Maybe I got an extended warranty!
Metro Man: Warranties are invalid, if used beyond their intended purpose!
Roxanne Ritchi: [exasperated] Girls, girls, you're both pretty! Can I go home now? (number 3 has to be my absolute favorite. :D) 
4# Metro Man: We all know how this ends: with you behind bars!
Megamind: Oooh, I'm shaking in my custom baby seal leather boots! 
Titan: You're so naive, Roxy. You see the good in everyone, even when it's not there. You're living a fantasy. There is no Easter Bunny. There is no Tooth Fairy. There is no Queen of England. This is the real world, and you need to wake up! 

6# Megamind: [pulls out dehydration gun on the gathering crowd] Get back, you savages!
Roxanne Ritchi: Sorry, sorry! He's just not used to positive feedback.
I guess it was more of those sort of movies which needs to be watched more then once to be hilarious! Megamind had some great quotes. The current quote which is going around from Megamind is "Can't wait LOL smiley face"  I love Megamind, Minion and Roxanne. Megamind has style! And Metro Man? One word? Stupid!!
Here's the Trailer and I would definitely recommend Megamind to anyone.

And one of my favorite scenes:

Though if you watch it it might ruin the story. :D Or at least the start. 

How to train your Dragon:


Like I said how to train your Dragon we watched a few months ago but only recently got our own copy. Let's just say we love it!! Plot:The Viking island of Berk has been plagued by attacks from dragons that steal their livestock and burn their buildings. Hiccup, son of the village chief Stoick the Vast, is a scrawny teenager who tries to invent machines to take down dragons, both to prove his worth and to impress Astrid, a competent and competitive girl of his age. Hiccup's efforts only serve to get in the way. After another dragon raid, Stoick rallies a fleet to seek out the dragons' lair, while enrolling Hiccup in dragon-killing school under the tutelage of the village blacksmith, Gobber.
One day, between lessons, Hiccup discovers one of his contraptions has actually caught a Night Fury, the most dangerous dragon known. Unable to kill the helpless dragon, Hiccup instead cuts it free; the dragon briefly roars at him before disappearing into the forest. Hiccup returns later to find the dragon unable to leave a shallow glade due to a tail injury that prevents it from flying. By trial and error, Hiccup discovers a way to earn the dragon's trust and begins to care for it. He names the Night Fury "Toothless," for its retractable teeth. Soon after, Hiccup fashions a make-shift harness and prosthetic tail that allows Toothless to fly while he rides the dragon.
Best quotes: 
1# Hiccup: Dat-da-dah! We're dead
2# Snotlout: Watch out, babe, I'll take care of this one. 
[Throws weapon at Deadly Nadder but misses. Astrid looks at him
Snotlout: The *sun* was in my eyes, Astrid! What do you want me to do, block out the sun? I can do that you know! ( this has to be my favourite quote). 
3# Hiccup: I really did hit one!
Gobber: Sure, Hiccup.
Hiccup: He never listens!
Gobber: Well, it runs in the family.
Hiccup: And when he does, its always with this disappointed scowl, like someone skimmed on the meat in his sandwich.
Hiccup: "Excuse me, barmaid! I'm afraid you brought me the wrong offspring! I ordered an extra-large boy with beefy arms, extra guts and glory on the side. This here, this is a talking fish-bone!"
Gobber: Now, you're thinking about this all wrong! It's not so much what you look like, it's what's inside that he can't stand.
Hiccup: Thank you for summing that up!
Gobber: Look the point is, stop trying so hard to be something you're not!
Hiccup: I just wanna be one of you guys! (2nd fav quote). 
4# Hiccup: Aw, come on! Let me out, please! I need to make my mark!
Gobber: Oh, you've made plenty of marks! All in the wrong places!
Hiccup: Please, two minutes! I'll kill a dragon, my life will get infinitely better, I might even get a date!
Gobber: You can't lift a hammer, you can't swing an axe, you can't even throw one of these!
[holds up a set of bolas]
Hiccup: Okay, fine! But this...
[gestures to a catapult machine]
Hiccup: ...will do it for me!
[He touches the machine and it goes off, firing a set of bolas out the window that hits a man]
Gobber: Now, see this right here...
[gestures to Hiccup's machine]
Gobber: what I'm talking about!
Hiccup: Mild calibration issue...
Gobber: Don't you... no, Hiccup! If you ever want to get out there to fight dragons, you need to stop all... this.
[gestures to all of Hiccup]
Hiccup: But you just pointed to all of me!
Gobber: Yes! That's it! Stop being all of you!
Hiccup: [nodding and glaring at Gobber] Oh...
Gobber: Oh, yeah!
Hiccup: You, sir, are playing a dangerous game! Keeping this much raw viking-ness contained! There will be consequences!
Gobber: [deadpan] I'll take my chances. 
5# Stoick: [about Hiccup] You know what he's like. From the time he could crawl, he's been... different. He doesn't listen, he has the attention span of a sparrow! I take him fishing, and he goes hunting for... for trolls!
Gobber: Trolls exist! They steal your socks, but only the left ones. What's with that? 
6# Hiccup: [reading in the Dragon Manual] Eats its victims... burns its victims... buries its victims, chokes its victims, turns its victims inside-out... Extremely dangerous, extremely dangerous... kill on sight, kill on sight, kill on sight... 
7# Fishlegs: [to Tuffnut] Your mom let you get a tattoo?
Tuffnut: It's not a tattoo, it's a birth mark!
Ruffnut: Okay, I've been stuck with you since birth and that was never there before.
Tuffnut: Yes it was! You've just never seen me from the left side before. 
8# Stoick: Either we finish them, or they'll finish us! It's the only way we'll be rid of them! If we find the nest and destroy it, the dragons will leave! One more search, before the ice sets in.
Viking: Those ships never come back!
Stoick: We're Vikings! It's an occupational hazard. So, who's with me?
[Muttering and mumbling, most of the Vikings decline]
Stoick: All right. Those that stay, will look after Hiccup.
[There is a chorus of shouting and raised hands]
Stoick: Aye, that's more like it. 
9# Hiccup: [Stoick has just thrust a large battle axe into his hands] I... don't wanna fight dragons.
Stoick: [chuckles] Oh, come on, yes, you do.
Hiccup: Rephrase: Dad, I *can't* kill dragons.
Stoick: But you *will* kill dragons!
Hiccup: No... I'm really very extra sure that I won't.
Stoick: It's time, Hiccup...
Hiccup: Can you *not* hear me?
Stoick: - this is *serious*, son.
[He takes the axe from Hiccup]
Stoick: When you carry this axe,
[he returns the axe to Hiccup]
Stoick: you carry all of us with you. Which means you *walk* like us, you *talk* like us, you *think* like us. No more of
[gestures to Hiccup]
Stoick: this.
Hiccup: You just gestured to *all* of me.
Stoick: Deal?
Hiccup: This conversation is feeling *very* one-sided...
Stoick: *Deal*?
Hiccup: [sighs, giving in] Deal. 
10# Gobber: [to Hiccup during dragon training] Don't worry. You're small and you're weak. That'll make you less of a target! They'll see you as sick or insane and go after the more viking-like teens instead.
11#  Hiccup: [watching the dragons take off with their livestock] Okay, but I hit a Night Fury. 
[Stoick grabs him and begins hauling him up the hill]
Hiccup: Ahh, it's not like the last few times, Dad! I mean, I really actually hit it! You guys were busy and I had a very clear shot! It went down just off Raven Point, let's get a search party out there before it...
Stoick: STOP!
[Hiccup stops, surprised]
Stoick: Just... stop. Everytime you step outside, disaster falls. Can you not see that I have bigger problems. Winter is almost here and I have an entire village to feed.
Hiccup: Well, between you and me, the village could do with a little less feeding, don't you think?
[the Vikings behind him cover their stomachs with surprised expressions]
Stoick: This isn't a joke, Hiccup! Agh, why can't you follow the simplest orders?
Hiccup: I - I can't stop myself! I see a dragon and I have to just... kill it, you know? It's who I am, Dad.
Stoick: Oh, you are... many things Hiccup, but a dragon killer is not one of them.
[Hiccup looks down with a frown]
Stoick: Get back to the house. Make sure he gets there!
[Gobber smacks Hiccup upside the head to get him walking]
Stoick: I have his mess to clean up.
Tuffnut: [to Hiccup] Quite the performance.
Snotlout: I've never seen anyone mess up that badly, that helped!
Hiccup: Thank you, thank you, I was trying, so... 
Okay I'd better stop with the quotes because there are so many good ones.
This is defiantly a family favourite and like Megamind I would recommend it to anyone. Not to mention I  love the music!! The main theme is absolutely beautiful
So I guess that sums it up. See you later 

Oh and by the way what did you guys who watched the Royal Wedding think? I myself thought it was very cool. 
The bride had a really nice dress and she looked pretty with her hair down. I didn't watch all of it but the part that I did what was great!!! 
Going now..Toodles!
God Bless
