"How to Train Your Dragon" is an extremely entertaining 3-D computer animated feature from Dreamworks. The story structure is fairly familiar, but it works, mainly because the characters are, er, three-dimensional -- just what you'd expect from the folks who brought you LILO & STITCH. Plus, the dragon-flying sequences take full advantage of what 3-D at its best can offer.
The only downside: A ticket to the 3-D Imax presentation of the movie at AMC Century City will set you back $20.50 -- $3 more than a 3-D Imax ticket to Avatar. That's a fast way to earn your money back.
