How to Train Your Dragon trailer - WTF?!  
Ok, so I didn't even know they were making a movie based on the Hiccup books. News to me. So imagine my shock when the link to the new trailer came across my Twitter feed last night! So I watched it and OMG, WHAT HAVE THEY DONE?! It's is virtually unrecognizable from the book. Most of the characters names are the same, but that's it really. So very, very sad. I'm embedding the trailer below so you can see for yourself.

If you have no idea what I'm ranting about, go read the book! Or better yet got LISTEN to David Tennant read them to you! That's how I even know they exist. Once again my slightly obsessive love for David has led me to awesomeness. He's read the first five books in the series. The first, of course, is called How to Train Your Dragon. Go get it, right now. You'll thank me later.

Now here is the source of my rant:

OK, so how is toothless supposed to hide under Hiccup's shirt? Hiccup is not an inventor. Really, this is just so wrong on so many levels.

I haven't the foggiest. It makes NO sense. The whole thing is a travesty, really.
