My Review:
Being a fan of the How To Train Your Dragon movies I couldn't resist but to give this a watch at the cinema the first chance I got and I was so happy I did as this film was so much better than I thought it would be.

I thought that this film was great and really stayed true to the other films in this trilogy. By showing how Hiccup is still saving the dragons and how they are safe and free because of him and the others that are helping to save them from poachers I think is good to see as it shows how people who don't live on their island still don't like dragons. Not only this but by having a Light Fury appear which gives Toothless the chance to find love was really sweet and showing how she didn't like the humans and didn't trust them so kept disappearing away from Toothless even though he really wanted to be with her showed how vulnerable the dragons still were. Having parts of this movie go to the past where Hiccup was a child and his dad told him about The Hidden World showed how his father was still helping Hiccup even though he was no longer around and helping to save the dragons in which were on the land by keeping them hidden from hunters. Personally, I did like that they had a villain in which was trying to capture Toothless in order to kill him as it showed how people still were hunting dragons and didn't like them and later in the movie when the audience find out why Grimmel was killing Night Fury the audience could understand the character a lot more. However, I also didn't like how Grimmel was using the dragons own venom in which they produced in order to drug them into doing exactly what he wanted and made them not even able to listen to Toothless which was an alpha for the dragons. This made me feel so sorry on them and wish that they were able to get a happy ending which unfortunately they are not able to get. As the dragons do get closer I think it is really sweet seeing Toothless try to impress the Light Fury and how he isn't great at it but that doesn't stop him, later in the movie as Toothless is going to die and Hiccup tells the Light Fur to save him is able to bring them closer together and she realises that Hiccup really cares for Toothless and is willing to give his life for him making her save both. I thought the ending was really emotional when the audience see how Toothless and all the other dragons leave to go to The Hidden World and no longer are living with the humans for their own safety, when after you see Hiccup older and with children and Toothless seems like he is going to attack them until he realises it is Hiccup is such a happy moment in which made me very close to tears and shows how even though friends might leave your life they will always mean something to you and you will always have a bond.

I couldn't fault this movie and thought it was the perfect way to end the How To Train Your Dragon trilogy. I would highly recommend this movie to families as well as those who are fans of the trilogy and like dragons which also has comedy. I am definitely going to be seeing this again!

My Rating: 5/5

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8lDreq9le4 My Review: Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected. I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the gr

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
