Something I have recently learned with writing reviews for, well, anything is that there isn't much point in doing one unless you actually have something worth while to say about it, more than just regurgitating the same things everybody else is saying. Gotta bring something new to the table, see, or at least that's how it is with me, or I start to loose interest over time.
That's what happened with my reviews for every episode of season 4 of MLP, by the way, and why I abruptly stopped after "Trade Ya" (actually, what REALLY happened was that I got caught up with school work that I couldn't set aside, thus resulting in me switching gears to focus on that, rather than things like MLP reviews, but the lack of interest was what kept from going BACK), though I do still plan on going back and covering what remaining episodes I haven't reviewed at some future date (because that finale is just screaming it) even if its so...after the fact.
But basically, I've decided that for future reviews, I'm only going to write it if I feel I genuinely have something to discuss, or something new to add to the overarching discussion on the subject.
Which leads me to why I'm writing all of this now; today I saw "How To Train Your Dragon 2" for the first time.
So now you're asking, what did you think of it? Was it as great as the hype promised, matching or exceeding the success (in terms of storytelling) of the first one? As great as all the other fans claim it to be, and that there is little to nothing you'd change, or even needing changing?
