How to Train Your Dragon 2 - Movie Vs. Video Game

How to Train your Dragon

How to Train Your Dragon 2 

If you would like to see what is in my opinion, a well-crafted movie that is sure to keep your interest from start to finish, you may want to check out How to Train Your Dragon 2.  You will find a movie  that not only has a beginning, middle and an end, but also has an engrossing story to boot.  In fact, without giving you any spoilers, there is a major reveal in the story that forms the basis for a lot of the action in the movie. How to Train Your Dragon 2 has riveting  action that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

In my opinion, the characters were well developed with many having their own story which tied in very well with the movie action.

Dragons in How to Train Your Dragon 2

Now that we've talked about How to Train Your Dragon 2 the movie, let's talk about how the video game by the same name compares. I had the pleasure of seeing a demo of this video game during my trip to E3 2014 in Los Angeles, California before the game was released.  In fact, it was the video game demo along with the commentary and video gameplay by the producer, that was my impetus to see the movie. During my ensuing Mom's Minute Video Game Show showcasing E3, I commented that the video game demo of How to Train Your Dragon 2 was one of the highlights of my visit to E3.

Even though I did not actually play the video game while at E3 2014, I was impressed by the vivid, colorful graphics and the smooth flying actions of the dragons shown as the producer talked about some of the actions and coordinations  that went into bringing the game to fruition.  At the time of the E3 2014 Expo, the movie had not yet been released, so when I saw the movie when it came out, I was expecting to see lots of flying dragons as I saw in the game, which I did see -- and so much more. 

The soundtrack from How to Train Your Dragon 2 is also getting a lot of buzz.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

I believe it goes without saying that the How to Train Your Dragon 2 video game has some limitations when it comes to telling a story.  After all, it is a game instead of a movie.  However, in today's world of blockbuster type movie video games with strong story lines, in addition to video game action,  I believe there were high expectations for the game itself.  The dilemma may be in how to give the video game player a good video game experience, as well as deliver a movie-like story line as well.  

I think that if you approach the How to Train Your Dragon 2 game as what it is, a video game, you may find it to be enjoyable to play -- especially if you delve into some of the challenges in the game itself.

If you have not checked out How to Train Your Dragon 2 -- the movie, I highly recommend you do so.  The movie is highly entertaining, and one that you may want to get when the DVD comes out to enjoy watching again and again.

How to Train Your Dragon 2, the movie is out now in some theaters. How to Train Your Dragon 2 video game is rated  E +10, and is also out now --  playable on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Wii.

Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice - New Wonder Woman Costume Revealed

Gal Galdot as Wonder Wonder

I am the first to say that whether it's a movie, video game, or some other visual type media, the characters,   story line and plot are, in my opinion, more important that what the characters are wearing.  However, in the case of some comic book characters, it's difficult to overlook the fact that their costumes have a huge impact on how they are either accepted or rejected by the fans.  For example, would you accept a Batman in an all white costume, complete with a white top hat and cane?  Probably not.  Because of the brooding nature of the Dark Knight, his costume is of course all black -- quite a change from the gray and black costume he wore earlier in some of the Batman comics and television show.  Just as Batman, Superman, Spiderman and others have changed their costumes, it looks like Wonder Woman is following suit in her latest upcoming movie appearances.

Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman

You may have heard that Wonder Woman will be sporting a complete new look when she appears in the upcoming movie, Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice which has a 2015 release time frame.  Unfortunately, Wonder Woman is a supporting character and as of yet, has not had a major motion picture where she is the main character.  Hopefully that will change soon.   Her outfit was finally revealed at Comic Con at San Diego, 2014.  The latest look deviates from the red, white and blue patriotic look of the original Wonder Woman costume to more of a bronze look as shown above.  Wonder Woman's costume has received mixed reviews with some saying that it is similar to Xena Warrior Princess' costume and others saying that the look is a welcome change that  brings her into the 21st century.

With the movie premiering in a few months, it's possible for Wonder Woman to undergo a costume change before the movie release.  She will also probably wear different costumes throughout the movie. Even though the movie is mainly about Batman and Superman, hopefully Woman Wonder will make an impression on the big screen, even if the buzz right now is mostly about her costume.

Variant Wonder Woman in her costume

Rather than concentrating on her costume, hopefully the shift will move to the Wonder Woman character, how she executes her missions and even more importantly,  making her a memorable character in the movie.  In my opinion, it is long past due for Wonder Woman to have her very own major motion picture feature film -- regardless of what she is wearing.

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice has a scheduled release date of 2015.  No word yet on if there will be an accompanying video game featuring Wonder Woman.
