In today's world of animated movies, How to Train Your Dragon 2 is an anomaly.  There are no princesses or catchy tunes to sign along to and the plot actually makes some sense.  And while there is still an element of fantasy, it doesn't overwhelm the story. When we return to Berk for this latest installment, there is peace and harmon...
