– (2013) – Varying Middle Earth inhabitants quest for a stone once stolen by a fearful dragon. An overblown assortment of long speeches, last minute rescues, uneven humor, and ridiculously choreographed action. Visually impressive, but the characters haven’t grown since the previous film, which only adds to the emptiness.
– (1996) – The larvae of a valiant moth metamorphoses into mankind’s only hope against a three headed dragon. Not bad when action is the focus and characters aren’t speaking, but too many kid-friendly scenarios nearly ruin the whole experience. Quite often a sight to behold, for better or for worse.
