This is probably 10% too high of a mark but I don't care. Dreamworks Animation deserves it. This is by far their best film ever. I find it hilarious to compare to Avatar on how much better this film was in terms of storyline and character development. The script was SO good. Note: I did not watch it in 3D because I despise 3D in almost all movies. I found the visuals to be outstanding even without it. It is so good, it feels like Pixar MUST be involved. Is it possible Dreamworks has finally figured it out? In several sequences just like when I watched UP (my fave film of 2009), I got the feeling that it HAD to be written by animal-lovers because they show far too much comprehension on the building of bonds between man and animal. It makes it SO believable and I savoured every last minute of those scenes. This movie could have taken seconds in the subduing of Toothless but instead spread it out over several scenes and it's a kid's movie! I found that so smart and brilliant. The scene of Toothless trying to force a smile will stay with me all year. This will totally appeal to all children and I believe most adults will really love the story as well. Most definitely recommended. My favourite film of 2010 so far but I've only seen 3 :(
