With a summer full of sequels, How to Train Your Dragon 2 shined as a lighthearted and moral-packed family-friendly blockbuster. The sequel picks up with the main lead, Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) sans one leg, and his trusty dragon sidekick, Toothless. Like any good sequel, the audience can tell how Hiccup has transformed from a measly boy in How to Train Your Dragon to a confident 20-year-old man. Together, Hiccup and Toothless have to fend off a threatening herd (gaggle? group? school?) of dragons led by an ill-intentioned villain, Drago (Djimon Hounsou). Throughout the movie, the viewer is taken on an immersive adventure with the help of great cinematography, direction, and score. If only the Khaleesi had watched these films, there would probably be less conflict in the Game of Thrones world.
