This animated movie is about a young Viking boy who brakes all the rules and gets a dragon as a pet (you can see more about it here). And by breaking the rules I mean that he goes against his Viking legacy which is all about killing the dragons.
In my opinion, this movie is a great showcase of what a “rebel” goes through. So many fears are present there all the time and he still does what he feels to be right even though from a cultural point of view is very very wrong. And guess what? In the end, it turned out that his way is the best way. The thing is that until he got to the point of leading by example, he had to face lots of critique and rejection. We all know that this always happens when someone tries to do something, even though it’s not necessarily something new.
All it takes is balls. Balls to trust yourself, balls to go against everything people think they know, balls to do what you think it’s right because critique and negativity is all around ourselves and there are people that can’t wait to talk sh*t about anyone and anything because that’s the only way they can feel good about themselves. When people cannot do shit with their lives, they try to bring others down because they cannot take the responsibility of their lives. When it’s everyone’s fault for the situation they’re in, they need to do sh*t so their lives improve, but once they realize it’s their fault, it hurts.
I like how this movie shows the idea that words cannot change the world if they’re not accompanied by visual examples. There are people that cannot believe something even if they see it with their eyes so you can imagine how open they are for something so “useless” as words.
I’d love to see your views about this movie since there are some ideas in it that can be used as a motivating force to drive us forward. So what do you think about it?
