The Top Ten

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.
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!
I love this movie so much. It teaches us about serve one an other, or help one an other. I think its a great movie for kids. It was so touching at the end I almost cried. You rock Toothless!
The worst. This Dreamworks movie is boring, silly, ridiculous of all. Make it bottom!
More comments about How to Train Your Dragon

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!

3Kung Fu Panda
Absolutely LOVED this movie. Characters are hiliarious, and so much fun for both children and adults alike!
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.
Poh is so funny
Favorite line
"I thought it's just an ordinary peach" so funny
This is the best movie in the world. all the characters are very funny. this movie has suspense and comedy and a lot more! I love it. the movie is just sheer awesomeness. all ages will love this movie. so buy it right now!

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!
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!
Best movie ever!
Jack Frost Is awesome!

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!
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
The voice acting is exceptional and the story is better than the first movie. Lord Shen is (in my opinion) far more awesome and evil than Tai Lung. Lord Shen has an army of wolves and he has a bunch of cannons and he can fight well. He can emotionally manipulate Po which makes him awesome. The humor keeps on building up and every converasation between Shen and Po is funny. The slow motion stuff happen on the right timing and it's just epic! I sort of cried a bit. Darn... I highly recommend pretty much anyone who likes animation and humor and action all rolled up together. Kung Fu Panda For the win! :3
This movie changed me view on animated movies. At first I saw those movies as comedy only but this movie showed me that there is way more to it. The characters are very well made. The animation is beutyfull. And it had a great balance betwen humor and drama. This is hands down in my top 3 favourit movies of all time. If you havn't seen it yet, go watch it. You WON'T REGRET IT!

This is definty one of the best Dreamworks Movies of all time. It had an odd twist on the superhero movie. Instead of it focusing on the hero the main charcter was a villan. And in the end a villan evolves into a hero.
Sequel is wanted by me.
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.

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!


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

9Over the Hedge
I'll watch this over and over and wont get tired of it


I hate these kind of movies but I love this one


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.
I hope they made a sequel

10Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
Best movie ever! I LOVE Spirit, and the music is incredible!
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.


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

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.

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/

14How to Train Your Dragon 2
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.
This movie was brilliant. Definitely the best sequel by dreamworks. It easily matches the quality of the first one.. If not more. The only other sequels that did this were the Toy Story sequels and Shrek 2. Beautiful movie, I loved it!
This is the best movie I have ever seen and a amazing second chapter to continue the story. The visuals are just the best In any animated movies and in the story comes a big shocker which I did not see coming. This is a sequel done how it should be done

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!

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


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.


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

Funny, cool and awesome
Epic is not a Dreamworks movie; it was made by Blue Sky Studios.
Wonderous animation with an exciting storyline

For crying out loud people quit placing non DreamWorks movies on this list. This is a Disney movie not a DreamWorks movie
I saw Frozen twice and I'm so sick of it! PLEASE don't vote

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

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


In a class by itself. One of the best animated films of all time.
I voted to share my hatrid

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
This how you get a cartoon adaptation right people!

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

35Joseph: King of Dreams

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


37Bee 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!
