The Top Ten
1 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Product Image

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs is possibly the best Sony Pictures Animation movie to ever be produced. Sure it doesn't stay that much true to the source material book adaptation. But the movie makes it up for its fun and enjoyable execution that delivers creative writing with an inventive script, really funny comedy, clever gags and great plucky characters. On top of that, it also offers one of the best Pete Oswald's unique and cartoony art style of Animation that works very well in CGI, with fluent movement and fast-paced slapstick; it fits the silly and goofy premise of the movie. I loved this movie!

It's sad that Sony Pictures Animation has been going down in the dumps now. In 2009, they made one of the best animated movies ever, and it's the Number 1 movie you are seeing right now (as of March 23, 2018) The comedy and plots were mixed to make a great story. Unfortunately, they made the Emoji Movie, which had terrible humor and plot, and the message really didn't fit right.

It's sad the studio from this great movie made a terrible movie years later... (However, they had different directors)

This is one of my favorite movies! This movie is one of the best movie about Father-Son relationship!

Screw Spiderman! This is the best and only good movie I've seen from them that they have released.

2 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Product Image

This is the only movie from Sony Pictures Animation I like and is one of my favorite animated movies. This is my 3rd top movie of 2018 next to Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther. By the next century, It should be preserved to the National Film Registry for its significance.

Let me tell you a story as I write this in 2018. A year ago, I found myself at the movie theater, ready to purchase a ticket for Pixar's Coco. But while I was doing that, I saw an elder black woman purchasing some tickets for her and her grandsons to go see Sony's The Star. In my mind, I was flabbergasted that Sony Pictures Animation would be getting any money from them that holiday season when they deserved to see a much better movie with Coco rather than a movie by the same animation studio who made the reviled summer disaster that was The Emoji Movie.

Zoom right to 2018 and I'm at that same movie theater. Only this time, I wasn't giving my money to Disney or Pixar. This time, I gave my money to Sony. And let me tell you, for every second of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse that I saw, every penny that went into the ticket I bought to go see it was totally worth it. Into the Spider-Verse isn't just quite arguably the best Spider-Man film to come out in recent years. It was ...more


my second favorite movie, right next to avengers endgame. (that comparison just shows how good this movie is. it's on the same level as avengers endgame)

Powerful storytelling mixed with stunning animation, Spider-Man just re-invented animation. 10/10

3 Surf's Up Surf's Up Product Image

Not only is this my favorite animated Sony movie, but is in my Top 3 Best Animated Movies. This is what got me into surfing in the first place. I love the characters, I love the story, I love the humor, everything about Surf's Up is top notch, except for a few things

1. Reggie(The otter with the afro hair.)
2. Surf's Up 2 Wavemania is GOD AWFUL!

Aside from that, if you haven't watched Surf's Up already, go watch it. NOW!

by the way, my favorite character is Chicken Joe.

This movie was my childhood I legitimately used to watch it 7 times a day

This was terrible

4 Arthur Christmas Arthur Christmas Product Image

It's awesome, EpicJake! If you hate Justin Bieber, please overlook that flaw. Aardman is the reason why Sony Pictures Animation has a slight amount of good movies, along with the original Sony Pictures Animation movies.

I love this movie. Great premise, amazing cast (and Mr Santa but whatevs), and, I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of the character designs but at least it's not Flint Lockwood.

I haven't seen this movie, but I'm sure it is good.

I love this movie

5 Open Season Open Season Product Image

It reminds me Native Americans, mountains, Australia, you name it... - The Ultimate Daredevil, describing mainly the animation of Open Season favorably

I had a thing for boog

6 Hotel Transylvania Hotel Transylvania Product Image

I really like hotel transylvania, my favorite is johnny, he is so funny.

It's got great animation and lovable characters.

I really liked it

7 The Pirates! Band of Misfits The Pirates! Band of Misfits Product Image

They made this movie? I thought the people who made shaun the sheep did...

It is one of my favorite movies.

8 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 Product Image

Pretty bad film and Flint cried and Steve's even more of a dick.

It isn't my favorite, but I giggled a few times honestly.

9 The Angry Birds Movie The Angry Birds Movie Product Image

This is not made by Sony Pictures Animation. Sure, it's made by Sony Pictures, but Sony Pictures Animation has no involvement in this film.

Greatest video game adaptation of all time. Hands down.

I love this movie

10 The Smurfs The Smurfs Product Image

I love this movie. This movie was my childhood. I don't find it as annoying as the chipmunks movies.

The Contenders
11 Monster House Monster House Product Image

This movie also isn't made by Sony Pictures Animation.

I like this movie fine

I hate this movie.

12 Hotel Transylvania 2 Hotel Transylvania 2 Product Image

I liked this one better then the first one, the little baby is so cute.

Great movie like the first one!

13 Sausage Party Sausage Party Product Image

I really liked it

14 Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Product Image

I did not like this movie at all, everybody knows that you only zing one time in your life, this is said the whole movie both movies hotel transylvania 1 & 2, and now dracula can zing again?, and it happens with a human no less, we all know the fit dracula had when mavies wanted johnny in the first movie, all of the music in the last 10 min or less I am really sure how long it was, is very annoying as well, and this movie just ends, she says yes to marrying dracula then it just ends, the kids where very annoying with the dog the whole time, the other two movies where so much better then this one, 0/10

Fun cast, hard-hitting jokes, and ok premise. Very similar to first movie but enjoyable nonetheless

This was pretty good. Personally liked this one.

15 The Emoji Movie The Emoji Movie Product Image

I love this movie! This is my favorite movie! My favorite characters are Gene and Jailbreak, they are so cute!

Sony is the best. Until they stole Spider-Man. Emoji Movie is still the best though.

THIS MOVIE IS THE BEST! way... better than any disney classics! disney movies are boring.
But this movie is way better than the classics like charlie brown which is the worst T.V. series of all time!
this movie is way better than my family and friends, gene is so cute I have a crush on him

I like this one

16 Smurfs: The Lost Village Smurfs: The Lost Village Product Image

Beautiful. Huge upgrade from the originals and, along with Captain Underpants, is one of the more underrated movies of 2017. Strong cast, decent jokes, and perfect animation

It is way more faithful (to its original source material) than the live-action The Smurfs duology.

17 Goosebumps Goosebumps Product Image
18 The Angry Birds Movie 2 The Angry Birds Movie 2 Product Image
19 The Smurfs 2 The Smurfs 2 Product Image

Screw this movie. I wish Smurfette were gooshed for being whiny. Crying like babies is not what good girls do.

Worse than the first.

20 Peter Rabbit Peter Rabbit Product Image
21 Open Season 3 Open Season 3 Product Image

Actuality scared silly is the worst movie in the franchise not the 3rd movie and besides scared silly all of the other films in the franchise are good.

This is easily the worst in the franchise.

22 The Star The Star Product Image

Creative and engaging animated rendition of the ageless story of Christ's birth. WELL DONE.

23 Surf's Up 2: Wavemania Surf's Up 2: Wavemania Product Image
24 Open Season 2 Open Season 2 Product Image
25 Open Season: Scared Silly Open Season: Scared Silly Product Image
