21. 'How to Train Your Dragon 2'
Original Rank: 21
Did we rank it too high or too low? Too low, given that it remains, even in late November, one of the very best things of the year.
What took us by surprise: That DreamWorks gambled on a writer/director vision rather than a screenplay-by-committee and that the movie soars so high, an epic achievement on design and story levels and makes the franchise stick out as the best thing the studio has going.
