Top Ten Dreamworks Animated Movies

The Top TenXW

1How to Train Your Dragon

What can I say except go get this movie, now! Don't let the title fool you. For an animated movie, the graphics in it is one of the top best looking movie I ever seen. It reaches the graphical standards of a video game in my opinion. The dragons are filled with so much texture on the scales which makes them look like more believable dragons. The animations on the characters and dragons looks amazing. The story is cliche in the beginning but the execution later on is fantastic. Never before I seen a strong bonding between Hiccup and his father. Voice actors are good in this movie. They all sound like real vikings should be. The main character in this movie that stood out to me was Gobber as he was funny and a good friend to Stoick. There are few moments where the characters in the movie uses mild bad words and a phrase was cut short as adults would know what the character was about to say next which I don't mind because they are vikings. Its an one hour and thirty minutes movie, but ...more

It has Vikings, dragons and a great story. Also Hiccup and Toothless are one of the best human/non human friendships/teams In animation. I love them both. And having seen How to train your dragon 2 only yesterday, I have to say that movie also should be on top. Amazing sequal. Both movies together for tied first spot. ;) Everything else is fun and all, but nothing is quite like How to train your dragon. Shrek, kong fu panda, Megamind and Madagascar focus more on the humorand funny aspects then on the actual story in my opinion. There isn't enough balance. Basicly they are a bit silly movies. Awesome silly movies. But silly none the less. Which isn't a bad thing. Humor films are awesome, but movies focused mostly on humor will never have spot 1 with me. How to train your dragon is a good balance of humor, friendship, character growth and a decent plot that actually is about something serious. A lot of dreamwork 3d animation movies miss this balance and have more focus on the haha ...more

By far the greatest movie I have ever seen in my life! It has great humor, really deep moments, and perfect for all ages! 10 billion thumbs up for sure!

This film MUST stay at the top! It MUST! Please. It's phenomenal!

I liked How to Train Your Dragon fine, however I'm a bit surprised Shrek did not make it's way up to number 1. Generally I dislike DreamWorks animated movies because the humor seemed more oriented at kids rather than making it fun for all age groups. Granted, these movies are geared toward children, but it's a much better experience when both the children and the adults enjoy the experience. Shrek manages not only to captivate both children and adults alike, it's one of the best animated movies period. The characters are humorous and well voiced, the plot is clever and is not gloated with extreme slap-stick humor (sometimes there is some here and there, but it's done appropriately) and just has a charming feel, especially with all the fairy tail characters (my personal favorite, the ginger bread man). Definitely an awesome movie and deserves the prestigious of number 1. - Salsander

Shrek rules. Isa bob. Donkey is hilarious. And fiona is the worlds coolest princess

I think this movie is the best one in the whole entire world! I watched this movie 55 times one day and it still made me laugh :D... I think donkey is funny cause he likes to annoy Shrek and I think is hilarious... I used to own this movie but the DVD broke but I still watch this movie on youtube and I still laugh at this movie... I am like 18 years old and I still think this movie is entertaining! THIS MOVIE ROCKS!

My favorite dream works film.

This is my favorite DreamWorks movie. The story is great, the characters were well-developed, and it had a powerful score. I also love animals. This is one of my favorite movies of all time. They seem like they created their own little world by developing every little detail.

The animation must have been a very difficult thing to pull of but it was great. The characters look so cuddly and soft. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a movie that is funny and has a lot of emotional depth.

Absolutely LOVED this movie. Characters are hiliarious, and so much fun for both children and adults alike!

Poh is so funny
Favorite line
"I thought it's just an ordinary peach" so funny

This is an amazing film! My favourite film by far!

4Shrek 2

Think this one was better than the first and way better cast and loved the ending for this one with the whole American Idol thing lol! - ballaboi17

This movie is so amazing. The original was genius, and this one was better. Up there with Beauty and the Beast, Finding Nemo, Toy Story, and Aladdin as one of the best animated movies of all time. This deserves #1!

How is this so far down. Not only is Shrek 2 the best of the shrek series but the best movie that has come from Dreamworks.

It's better than the original shriek and had the meaning of love way better than frozen.

This movie is good very nice I didn't saw this much good movie of dreamworks did you like it

THe BEst fuNny movie! AnD has a good Story! I loved it! And I have watched AlL the part Of this MoVie!

Oh gosh, this movie is awful going back. The animation is nauseatingly bad, the story is equally as bad AND boring, the characters aren't interesting, and the vast majority of the humor is pretty lame. The only reason I can fathom this movie making any top ten list is via pure, unfiltered nostalgia.

I love this movie. My favorite characters in this movie are The Lion and The Zebra

6Rise of the Guardians

This movie was incredible, beautifully animated, great stroy line my great childhood heroesin one movie, this movie definitely deserves the top spot!

¡I can wait to see it, ¡It looks the best dreamworks film ever forever, I'm sure I'm going to love this movie!

It's the best animated movie I've ever watched. It has got a very good theme. All The main characters are my childhood favorites. You should just download this movie or get a copy of it from somewhere or do anything but you must watch it. Its really awesome. I do hope you guys vote it. It deserves to be in the top.

This movie had so much potential. Watching the trailer got me pretty hyped for what was actually an original and cool idea. Needless to say, it did not meet my high expectations. The movie wasn't necessarily awful, don't get me wrong, but it just doesn't have what it takes to deserve the number 6 slot. I would put it around number 10.

7Megamind

Love this movie; as someone who loves to root for the bad guy this movie was a real treat; it had an original story with some twists and turns that I would not expect from an animated film; shame that this movie is overshadowed by Despicable Me; Megamind is 10 times better than Despicable Me; if Dreamworks has more great ideas for the franchise I would love to see the story continue with Megamind as a hero

When we watch movies we usually root for the good guys, but here the villain is the far better character. The hero is a rather arrogant guy who's really full of himself whereas Megamind is far more intelectual (except he really isn't).
Charming and personable, a plot which twists and turns and being very funny Megamind is an absolute must watch.

Hilarious movie. Animated movies are about character development and this one has lots of it. A villain who only cares about taking over the world turns into a hero with a best friend and girlfriend. DreamWorks should make a sequel. - bilbro29

This movie is the best of all movies. Because the concept of the movie was nice. The part where I found out that metro man was alive I just freaked out.

8Kung Fu Panda 2

Kungfu panda 2 has everything needed for an all round movie for kids and adults.

Apart from the beautiful animation and lore; the film draws in a complexity that adults can appreciate which children can also keep up with.

The storyline and character development is far more superior to the original. With additional characters added in to create a much more epic awesomeness, that Poh must adapt to as his role as the dragon warrior. All of this whilst battling his own demons to find his own self worth far exceeds that of a dragon warrior.

But last but not least; the fighting scenes were amazing!

Most sequels don't live up to the original, and even less surpass it. But this is a very rare case where the sequel actually SURPASSED the original. Why? To put it bluntly, the story is much better. It gets deeper into the protagonist's past, and allows more character development. The villain is so much better, so much evil and much more developed than the one in the original movie. And here, the story is darker and more serious, while at the same time maintains the same goofy humor we loved so much about the first movie. The verdict? See this movie at once. Even if you haven't seen the original, you won't be missing much, and even though Dreamwork's can go downhill with sequels like what happened to the Shrek movies, Kung Fu Panda is the exception.

In a rare turn of events, Dreamworks got something to, well, work. In an even rarer turn of events, this sequel managed to surpass the original in terms of quality. It packs a lot more development for Poe and plenty of fast, fun combat. While this movie takes a more serious approach than it's younger brother, the comedy of the original is still present and most of it is pretty funny. It looks better, sounds better, and is written better than the first. The only way the original surpasses this one is in the sound department. A must see for all who enjoyed the first installment, and it is my favorite Dreamworks movie thus far.

I think it's the best! Nice story and there is an awesome fighting scene

I'll watch this over and over and wont get tired of it - HotRod

I hate these kind of movies but I love this one - seether62

I loved this movie. It had some humourous jokes, great voice acting and an interesting plotline. It had a few funny gags in it such as the explosions and the thanks deep note. Overall, I love this movie. If you haven't watched it, watch it. You will not regret.

Love this movie never get sick of it

10Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

I've loved this movie since it came out, and watched it hundreds of times. Spirit is my life movie; the motion pictures, the music, the storyline, it's all so beautiful, wild, and makes you feel free. This movie doesn't get enough credit, it's the best animated movie of all time. It will be around forever, and is an all-time classic. - emraldYE

Best movie ever! I LOVE Spirit, and the music is incredible!

It's a great horse movie and it shows how he's not afraid to try and makes a really good friend too the boy and makes a good leader for his heard

I've loved this film since it first came out such a beautiful film

The Contenders

11How to Train Your Dragon 2

While I do believe that the first How to Train You Dragon is a little bit better, this is still one of the worthiest sequels I have ever seen. Like some critics have said, this is the Empire Strikes Back of animated movies. Deeper story, wider world, and shocking twists, not to mention a much darker, mature plot. If you thought the trailer gave a major spoiler, watch this movie and see that wasn't even half of it. John Powell returns to compose the soundtrack, and it is as gorgeous as ever, dare I say it's better than the first movie at certain points? And the animation is top notch, just like with it's prequel. Flaws? Some of the major characters are given lesser screen time, especially the other teens. Plus the movie is a bit too fast paced, so some people may have to see it twice to truly appreciate it. And the main villain is a bit too generic. But asides that, it's a movie that must not be missed, whether you love animation or not.

Okay, I am SHOCKED that this movie isn't in the top 5. Its great that How to train your dragon is the best dreamworks film, but how to train your dragon 2 doesn't deserve to be all the way down here. VOTE people! This film was so strong that it made half the people watching it CRY (including me). It was amazing to see all the characters in their 19, 20's. A big shock was how the teens' appearances changed, and how they turned into young adults. I found it really interesting when new dragons were introduced, especially the Bewilderbeast and Cloudjumper. The graphics were the best I have ever seen out of all animations and the soundtracks were so good that I could listen to them all day. The sequel did not let us down, just like Dreamworks had promised. Really, this film was so breathtaking that the whole time you could feel shivers all over your body. Vote for How To Train Your Dragon 2! And if you haven't seen it, then make sure you do!

I must say I never expected a sequel so good. The first How to Train Your Dragon was a masterpiece, but the way this story get's straight to the point, the coming of age, and let's not forget the amount of darkness and emotion when compared to the original is just simply amazing how this movie pulled it off. It managed to top the original in many aspects. The score was brilliant as always thanks to John Powell, and while most would be worried on how a sequel would live up the already brilliant original film, this second part delivers big time. Highly recommended.

I liked it better than the original.

This is a hilarious movie... Puss with his "aw" eyes is so cute!
I love it and I know you love it too
Cute, hilarious, best movie EVER

I love this movie it is so entertaining and funny and closer to the end it has a huge twist. It has great voice acting as well as amazing graphics. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys good animations. 5 Stars.

This is awesome. I and bro love this movie.

This was a surprisingly well-developed movie. It's not the best, but it is certainly enjoyable.

13The Prince of Egypt

I love this movie! It has beautiful animation, great voice acting, and a fantastic music score. This movie deserves more credit than it receives. The song "When You Believe" deserved to win the Academy Award for best original song.

This movie is one of my all time favorites. I wish that Dreamworks would create more biblical based movies such as one about the nativity and one about all of the miracles Jesus has performed and the Crucifixion.

This has always been one of my favorite movies generaly ever made with animation. The songs are teriffic, the animation is solid, and it's from the bible so there's not much to say there.

One of my all time favorites really deserves more credit then what it actually gets, and I would love dreamworks to create more biblical movies

14The Road to El Dorado

This movie is so brilliant. The animation is beautifully done, the horse is, as always, a hilarious character, and the very obvious love between Tulio and Miguel could warm the heart of even the coldest person. Okay, maybe that's a little dramatic, but this movie has always been one of my favorites :-)

This is a very unique kind of movie. How many good movies do yu find that are about exploring Central America along with comedy? Not many. The music is awesome too! One of my favorites of all time!

EL DORADO is the word which get etched in your mind for a long time. Animation is what I always liked and this movie has uplifted it to a greater level. I am a fan of its music AWESOME! A must Watch m/

Everybody that I know likes it. And of course I do too. - Navylexi

Power time. Most excellent! Movie is plentiful time for each and other.

This movie is really nice. The part where Susan enlarged was the best. I wouldn't say it's the best but deserves to be in top 10.

Wonderfully plotted, memorable characters, with hidden historical references - POW camps and Communism! I love it!

This should be number 1 on the list.

17Flushed Away

Seriously? This movie should be in the top ten! While it's not the greatest (Shrek, haha), it's definitely worth a mention. It has very clever humor (British humour, may I add) that you can't get out of any other DreamWorks film. The most underrated dreamworks movie by far.

Yes, this gotta be top 1! Even the GBA version!

Because of the slugs singing makes me laugh

I love this movie so much.
