There be dragons.

Apparently, everyone read my rules of theater etiquette prior to the screening of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World because everyone was on their best behavior. Thus, no complaints and we’ll get straight to a six-year old’s musings of the third installment of dragon training.

What’s the movie we saw?
How To Train Your Dragon 3.

Did it have a second title?
Ummmm? No?

Wasn’t it called The Hidden World?
Then yes for the second sentence.

What was The Hidden World about?
A place far away from the world. Oh wait. No. Not that. A place under the world that had a lot of crystals and rocks.

Did anyone live in the hidden world?
Yeah. A lot of dragons.

Did the dragons use the crystals for anything?
No.

So the crystals were just decoration?
Yeah. They were not used.

Was anyone still training the dragons?
Yeah. The movie is called. Why would you ask that question?

Sorry. Was that a bad question?
Yes.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
A LOT of dragons.

Why was the hidden world important?
It’s important because if you bought that world it would cost $20 million dollars. No, way more. Like, $15 thousand million dollars.

Was someone trying to buy the hidden world?
No, but if you wanted to it would cost…yeah. It would cost $15 thousand million.

What was happening in the movie? Were the dragons fighting, playing, eating people?Yes. Fighting, fighting, fighting, fighting.

Who were they fighting?
They were fighting that person that has all those dragons that horns come out of their chin. That, he has that.

Horns coming out of their chin? Was that scary?
Yes. Remember that?

I do remember that. I remember that person was a creepy dragon hunter guy.
Hahahaha.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
Thin head. Chin horns. Definitely creepy.

Were the Vikings from the other movies in this movie?
I haven’t seen the other movies. So probably yeah.

What were the Vikings doing in the movie?
They were fighting for themselves and trying to capture the creepy guy with the skinny head. Remember? He had a thin head.

I do remember. Why were they trying to capture the creepy guy?
To get back Toothless and, um, what’s her name? The white one?

You mean the white dragon?
Yeah.

I don’t think she had a name. I think they just called her the light fury.
Oh yeah!!!

Did the light fury kiss toothless?
*Thinking* Yeeeesss?! Hahahahaha.

Who was your favorite character in the movie that wasn’t a dragon?
They call him two different names. One – chief. Two – um, um, um…

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
Chief Um-Um has a flaming sword. What’s not to like?

Hiccup?
HAHAHAHAHAHA.

Is Hiccup a funny name?
Yes. Oh yeah. Hiccup.

Why do you like Hiccup?
Because. Because.

Just because?
Because. Yeah.

Who was your favorite character who was a dragon?
Light Fury.

Oh yeah? Why?
Remember at the theater. I told the people that it was Toothless, but I changed my mind because when Toothless was making weird moves, I agreed with her face.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
My son doesn’t realize he was agreeing with her “there is no way we are having sex” face.

Hahahaha.
Don’t write that down. Are you writing that? Are you writing everything I say? Hahaha. Ugggghhhh.

Ok. What part of the movie do you think people will like the best?
When Toothless was making weird moves. Like I just said.

Is there anything else you want to tell people about the movie?
Ummm. Not really.

Rating:
How much money should you ask for back?
You shouldn’t ask for any money back.

Why not?
Because the movie was fantastic.

About Kevin

Kevin is a cyber security engineer who somehow managed to become a bonafide movie critic - joining the Denver Film Critic Society in 2016 - despite being that guy that screening reps are afraid to ask "so, what'd you think of the movie?" Oh, he'll tell you alright, but it might take thousands of words to do it.
