FlixChatter Review: How to Train Your Dragon

I have been following The Hobbit movie news rather casually the past few months, having loved the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The production seems to have hit a bunch of snags. First the director musical chairs (which I'm glad it finally goes back to Peter Jackson) and lately there's the actors' strike that may …
