Popcorn Pick 4-23-10

Popcorn Pick

No movies of any real quality opening this week (with the possible exception of the nature documentary Oceans, if you're into that kind of thing), so I'll choose a film you might have missed that came out a couple of weeks ago. How to Train Your Dragon is the latest 3-D animated film to come out of DreamWorks (the makers of the Shrek films), clearly aimed at kids and young adults who are looking for escapist entertainment. The story of a young boy who befriends a not-so-ferocious dragon and changes the way his Viking-esque people looks at their scaly enemies is sure to satisfy the cute factor many times over. The film looked pretty average, but its consistent box office performance suggests otherwise. Features the voices of rising star Jay Baruchel and Gerard Butler.
