Musings:
Omg how I cried. I cried and cried and cried. So many reasons, so many times. And sure the hormones surely made me cry more, but still, the movie is heartbreaking at times.

The dragon is pretty weird looking. I guess they went by the dinosaur road but gave it fur instead of feathers? Oh I do not know. It was pretty fake looking that way, but it was still good the way it moved and such.

The kid was good too, he sure loved that dragon *cries a bit again*

It really was a lovely movie, and such a sad one. My poor poor heart.

I do not think I have seen that animated movie, but I am sure I have read a picture book when little.

A really good movie.

  2. I didn't expect this one to be the crying sort of movie, but now I gotta see it. It was on my radar when the trailer released, but I somehow forgot about it. Glad you enjoyed!

  9. I thought this movie was cute, but we rented it for the kids and it didn't even hold their interest past the first hour :(

  10. I really loved this original version of this movie, when the dragon was animated. I haven't tried this remake.
