‘How to Train Your Dragon 3’ Proves How to Finish a Trilogy

While not exactly a golden rule, it is known fact that if a movie does well in the box office, chances are good that it will be followed by sequel and more often than not, we’ve come to expect that the sequel won’t measure up to the original. Add a third movie to the mix and you’re just asking for trouble. With animated movies, the expectations are often even lower. (Is anyone really surprised that the Ice Age movies keep getting worse?) But sometimes, as is the case with the Disney/Pixar Toy Story movies, we’re pleasantly surprised. Now you can add How to Train Your Dragon to that short list too.

One thing that DreamWorks Animation has understood about this series is that the story comes first, the hijinks come later. The very first Dragon movie proved that way back in 2010 with a strong story and with each chapter that has come after it, that story just keeps getting better.

Taco Bell Weddings: For Here or to Go?

Ever dreamed of having your wedding at Taco Bell? Now you can.
(YUM Brands)
Because getting married by Elvis is so passe, now you get married at Taco Bell says the company on their website. In what started as a stunt for the fast food chain and every little girl’s dream, weddings are soon to be on the menu right next to the chalupas. The downside? They will only take place in one location – Los Vegas.

Earlier this year, Taco Bell created the Love and Tacos Contest where couples could enter to win an all-expense paid trip and wedding at the Las Vegas Cantina. Of the 150 entries, Dan Ryckert and Bianca Monda won the wedding of their dreams, or at least Dan's dreams. Apparently, Dan is a HUGE Taco Bell fan who has ordered every item off the menu (and still looks slim) and for his 32nd birthday, his fiancé surprised him by taking him to dinner to the Taco Bell in Pacifica, Califorina which the company boasts as one of their nicest locations. So, it was fitting that they pair won the majority of the 17,000 votes posted online. The big day was celebrated this week on Monday, June 26.

Don’t feel bad if you were not invited. Now you too can have your own taco-inspired wedding beginning on August 7, 2017. For $600, the wedding package includes a ceremony performed by an ordained officiant, a private reception for up to 15 guests, custom merchandise for the bride and groom, Taco Bell branded champagne flutes, a Taco 12-Pack, a Cinnabon Delights “wedding” cake and a bouquet made from sauce packets. What a steal. For more information on how to get married at Taco Bell visit tacobell.com/feed/how-to-get-married.
