The Top Ten

1
How 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 overall to me, it felt like an two hour movie. The soundtrack, the soundtrack makes it a whole lot better as it boost up the experience in the movie by a lot. Great job John Powell for the beautiful sountrack. Even though I am not a kid, its my favourite movie of all time. Give it a chance as your children would like it.
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 bits.

A Movie who doesn't focus to much on humor like HTTYD is Rise of the guardians. The characters are awesome (Pitch Black best dreamworks villain by far for me) however this movie can never be 1 for one simple reason. The plot was to weak. They could have done much better story wise I think.

Honorable mentions: The older 2d animation movies like Spirit, Sinbad etc. They where really good movies and the only reason I am not voting on those is because for some reason when people ask me to pick my favorite dreamworks movie, I only look at the 3d animated ones. I usualy don't compare 2d movies with 3d movies.. Don't ask me why because I don't really know. I guess I'm just weird that way. But that doesn't mean they are forgotten. Really great movies.
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!
[Newest]This is the best movie that I never see, in the 100 more animation movies, this is the best movie

2Shrek
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.

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!
[Newest]Donkey is hilarious and Boots is awesome.

3Kung Fu Panda
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
[Newest]It is the best movie ever!

4Rise of the Guardians
It has a very excitable and fun feel to it- although it may not be quite suited for the older audience, it was really cute and I loved it:) You will laugh, you will cry, and you will do everything in between. Also it had a wonderful story line and one of Dreamworks best animation; if you even look close enough, Jack Frost has a tiny little patch on the side of his jacket (^ω^)If you like this, check out Wreck it Ralph; instant favorite!
¡I can wait to see it, ¡It looks the best dreamworks film ever forever, I'm sure I'm going to love this movie!
This movie was incredible, beautifully animated, great stroy line my great childhood heroesin one movie, this movie definitely deserves the top spot!
[Newest]This movie is AH-MAY-ZING. What else can I say? Also I love Jack Frost. His story is so heartbreaking and he's so cool (no pun intended) and lovable. All the other characters are fantastic as well. This movie deserves much more love and attention than it received when it came out.

THe BEst fuNny movie! AnD has a good Story! I loved it! And I have watched AlL the part Of this MoVie!
[Newest]This Sound Be Number 1 This Is The Best Dream Work Movie Ever

6Kung 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.
I absolutely adored kung fu panda with its fantastic humour and also some breathtaking animations, but kung fu panda 2 has one extra thing: the emotional appeal. This film was really moving when they talked about po's life and the unknowingly residence of his parents and it was a very thoughtful story with an extra piece that made this film worthy
[Newest]Amazing movie also the scene where Poh discover his old village almost brought me to tears. Call me emotional but it's hard for me to tear in a movie.

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.

[Newest]Tina Fey would be a great voice for Rouge the Bat. She could also give Rouge the Bat the same Russian accent the chief warden from "Muppets Most Wanted" named Nadia has.

8Shrek 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

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.
This a very good sequel I think it is not as good as the others but this one is worth watching
[Newest]This was better than the first

9Over the Hedge
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.
[Newest]I hope they made a sequel


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!
Its 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
[Newest]This movie is so underrated :( It has it all - beautiful animation, emotional story and great songs. A true masterpiece. It is almost as great as The lion king. Some of the scenes just stay in your mind forever. And, oh, the tears we shed...

The Contenders

11The 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.
[Newest]I literally love only Avengers more in the entire universe of movies. The ONLY reason this isn't #1 is because not enough people have seen it.

12Puss in Boots
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
This is awesome. I and bro love this movie.
Chicks dig Puss in Boots.

13The 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/
[newest]
The first dreamworks movies' animation was hideous in my opinion.

14How to Train Your Dragon 2
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.
This is DreamWorks' best visual/artistic and narrative triumph to date. The animation is superb and deserves so much respect, and the plot is masterfully told. It is one of those rare sequels that outdoes the original in nearly every way. Loved it so much. It may just be my #1 favorite animated movie ever, period. If not, it's definitely my favorite DreamWorks animated movie alongside its predecessor.

15Madagascar - Escape 2 Africa
This movie was hilarious...

jprg12

It's such a cute movie! I will never get tired of it. It is way better than the 1st one! It will never get old! " I will always love it! "
I think this one is better than the first one

16Monsters vs. Aliens
Power time. Most excellent! Movie is plentiful time for each and other.

17The Croods
The Croods was very good! It was very well written and the monkey was hilarious!
I think Emma Stone would be a good voice for Roll Light from Mega Man: Battle Network series.
Hilarious movie with great animation

18Despicable Me
THIS WAS NOT MADE BY DREAMWORKS!
It was made by Universal Studios and Illumination Entertainment, thank you very much.
STOP PUTTING NON-DREAMWORKS FILMS ON THIS LIST! Despicable me was not by Dreamworks, it was made by Universal Studios! Great film though.
This is one of the best movies of 2010 but this is NOT Dreamworks animation!

19Flushed 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

20Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
Nice movie, even background score firework looks like its just made for the movie scene only!
I like them so much the animation are the best in madagascar. I think it is the last episode in the madagascassdasdasdad Cment the quolity bewfore yo hgof sdsd sdss adsdfsdffs

21Chicken Run
Wonderfully plotted, memorable characters, with hidden historical references - POW camps and Communism! I love it!
This should be at least top 2.

22Ice Age
Ice 'age is not a dreamworks film, it is blue sky studio film

jackruby08

The Ice Age franchise sucks dick.

23Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas
I love the animation in this movie. It will wow you with spectacular colours and action.

24Shrek Forever After

25Shrek the Third
Sorry, but I think all the Shreks after Shrek 2 were terrible.

Therater2


26Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
This should be in the top ten! '!,

27Epic
Epic is an amazing film, but is NOT made by Dreamworks! It is made by Blue Sky Studios!
Epic is not a Dreamworks movie; it was made by Blue Sky Studios.
Funny, cool and awesome

28Frozen
For crying out loud people quit placing non DreamWorks movies on this list. This is a Disney movie not a DreamWorks movie
Is this the Dreamworks list or not? Seriously, it is so obvious that this film was made by Disney, NOT Dreamworks! Search on Google before placing Disney films on the Dreamworks list!
This is NOT a Dreamworks movie and this sucks!

29Despicable Me 2
This movie is not form dreamworks.
Best movie on earth! Very funny too! Be do be do be do be do be do be do be do be do be do be do!
For gods sake, THIS WAS NOT MADE BY DREAMWORKS! It was made by Universal studios! How stupid can people get?

30Shark Tale
Growing up with two younger sisters, most of the movies that my family owned were for kids that were just younger than me. The two exceptions were this wovie and Race to Witch Mountain. From the time I was 9 to the time I was almost 13, I saw this movie dozens of times, and it was great. The story is enjoyable, the characters are likable, and the animation looks great. Highly recommended.
Shark tale is the bomb! It's very underrated but I personally think it is very good! It's very funny and I find the characters to be likable.
I watched this movie with my class I was preparing to hate it but it was a pretty good movie but It wasn't as good as finding nemo

31Antz
I love this movie!, and I havnt seen it for ages, I want to see it again

dragon13304

In a class by itself. One of the best animated films of all time.
Nice film, but the ants really give me the shivers!

32Wallace & Gromit

33Mr. Peabody & Sherman
Witty, comedic and heartwarming, Mr Peabody and Sherman managed to capture my heart ever since I saw it. It really deserves the Oscar!
This movie is deserving to have an oscar
Mr. Peabody xxx Yoshi

Sherman xxx Kirby

Penny Patterson xxx Diddy Kong

P.S. This movie isn't too good.

34Curious George
I just loved David cross performance
You guys are crazy this thing is not dreamworks

35Joseph: King of Dreams

36Kung Fu Panda 3
Can't wait for the fuzzy bear!

Harri666

I bet this film will bring many surprises! Go Po!

37Ice Age: Continental Drift

38Bee Movie
This really deserves to be higher up the list as it is hilariously funny and I laughed at every single bee related pun (and there was a lot) since they were clever every time. Barry's relationship with Vanessa was quite creepy alright but the movie was still heart warming and shows you that how sometimes the things you want aren't necessarily what you need. It showed us we should not be greedy but also to fulfil your dreams and don't just go with the status quo, follow your dreams. I really enjoyed this film and still really enjoy it now.
The comedy of Jerry Seinfeld keeps me coming back for more. Patrick Warburton's character is hilarious. I see something new in the elaborate backdrops every time I watch.
Why is this not higher? This movie owns how to train your dragon! Get that, megamind, rise of the guardians, and kung fu panda 2 off of the top ten! Replace it with bee movie, over the hedge, and shark tale and you might just have a decent list! Gosh!
[Newest]I'd like to see Vanessa naked!

I can't say anything except
I'd like Turbo porn videos.
