C'mon Hollywood: Where are the animated films this summer?

Let’s just get this out of the way; it’s been a pretty lackluster summer at the box office so far. Maybe some of you will disagree and that’s fine, but it feels like we’ve had a cavalcade of ho-hum entertainment so far, with a few cool entries sneaking by. 2014 was always going to serve as a preamble to 2015, which has a far more impressive line-up of pics that,...

Looking just at the last fourteen years, we have seen animated films, CGI and hand-drawn, that have been some of the best of all time. But, which of those movies are the best of their era?...

How to Train your Dragon 2 clip shows you how to read a dragon

It's hard to make an animated film that appeals to people of all ages. I tend to find, more often than not, that either the material is aimed squarely at children (which is fine), go for the "cutesy" angle (DESPICABLE ME) or throw a lot of pop-culture references to keep you interested (SHREK). HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON succeeded in a big, bad way and the sequel looks to do the same....

Listen to "Where No One Goes" from the How to Train Your Dragon 2 soundtrack

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 looks to expand on the scope and heart of the original movie in every way without straying from what made the first movie one of the best animated films of the decade.

Check out the stunning first five minutes of How To Train Your Dragon 2

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON remains one of my all-time favorite animated movies and may be the best film from Dreamworks Animation to date. Something about the flying sequences and the creative dragon design mixed with a great voice cast and a big heart at the center of the movie makes it a great adventure for kids of all ages. That sounds cliche, but the movie just works on all levels. We...
