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 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!

In my opinion how to train your dragon 1 is better than how to train your dragon 2 because it gives you more general knowledge about the characters and how they gained each other's trust. But I must say how to train your dragon 2 is pretty fun too ; I expect it to be second vote

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. - 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!

It's for children AND adults. - PizzaGuy

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

My all time favourite animated movie.. I'm NOT kidding or exaggerating when I say that I have watched this a thousand times. And every time I watch this, I have the same magical feeling.. And unlike many other animated flicks, Kung Fu Panda can be enjoyed by both young as well as adults.. And that's the reason why a 20 year old like me still watches it and LOVES IT

5Shrek 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.

This should be number 1! - hogwartsjedi

6Rise 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!

Superb! I love this movie. Mostly Jack Frost.

7Kung 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

8Megamind

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

Seriously funny and awesome. My favourite character was that fish; he was so cute and hilarious!

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.

This is so good, I have seen it at least 20 times. The car explosion was funny. - Gunner224

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

When I was little I loved horses and that film was my favorite back then

The Newcomers

?Epic

One of Dreamworks' last good movies, before Mr. Peabody and Sherman, and then dying, it had a ton of adventures and a meaningful plot, good writing, and even good animation, it was special, no wonder it was epic.

?Frozen

This isn't even a dream works movie! It's a disney. And how did spirit beat out The road to El dorado?!

This is should be higher! This is the best!

12The 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.

This movie is one of my favorite movies

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

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 film is darker and more mature than the first, and expands upon its own universe. It also doesn't treat its audience like they're stupid and dares to take risks. The way it takes trusts the audience and actually raises the stakes with deaths and whatnot. And its animation is awesome, with REALISTIC WOMEN! (Shock, gasp! ) Yes, Frozen, I was looking at you. I thought it would 2nd, under the first one. Yes, I am shocked this didn't happen so, yeah, please vote for it. No, watch it and THEN vote for it

I am most certainly the best FAN OF THE MOVIE AND THE BOOKS! It's just so amazing

15The 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/

The first dreamworks movies' animation was hideous in my opinion.

16Flushed 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

This movie is so boring

17Chicken Run

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

This should be at least top 2.

This should be number 1 on the list.

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!

19Shark 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

Am I the only one who hates this movie.

20Bee 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.

Wasn't from Dreamworks I think. And is a silly and kind of boring film.

I'd like to see Vanessa naked!

Well, her thighs are going to thicken as well as that makes her ass enlarge, so then she would have a pear figure.
