Competition for the Best Animated Film Oscar this year is stiff. The big news early on was the exclusion of The Lego Movie, but the films that were nominated are certainly worthy. In fact, there all so worthy, there isn’t a clear cut favorite between the five nominees. Disney’s Big Hero 6 is the slight favorite based on recognition and box office alone but the other films are close behind.
Which brings us to the reason you’re reading: How to Train Your Dragon 2. The DreamWorks Animated film has a real shot at doing what the first film didn’t, and that’s win the Oscar. To do so means campaigning and one new way they’ve done that is release an awesome one hour documentary on the making of the film. Watch the How to Train Your Dragon 2 making of video below.

The summer movie season is officially over and that means its time to wrap up our 2014 Summer Movie Wager. If you are unclear, every year a group of us attempt to predict which films will be the top ten of the summer season. You get points for being as accurate as possible.
Like most summers, 2014 was filled with surprises and familiarity. The biggest surprise? Guardians of the Galaxy. In just four weeks, it outgrossed every other film of the summer including massive hits like Transformers: Age of Extinction, X-Men: Days of the Future Past and more. What wasn’t a surprise?

The order was another story and is what finally declared a winner.
Below, check out the final point totals and watch our wrap-up video podcast. Read More »
