Best Animated Movies of 2014

The Top Ten
1 Big Hero 6 Big Hero 6 Product Image

I not a fan of animated movies anymore but I watched this movie with my family, and I was so surprised by how much I liked this one. Big Hero 6 is not only better than the Lego movie and my opinion (even though, I liked the Lego movie), but the best Disney film I have seen since The Incredibles

Certainly deserves top spot! This movie was just mind-blowing and honestly my favourite non-Pixar animated Disney movie. It's very colorful, enjoyable and emotional. No suprise this one is number #1

I love this movie so much and it is one of the best movies of 2014. This movie is also better than Mulan and Meet the Robinsons. Because Mulan and Meet the Robinsons suck and are both bad Disney movies.

This movie is one of my favorites! Baymax is such an adorable, funny character, and Fall Out Boy's hit song "Immortals" is amazing!

2 The LEGO Movie The LEGO Movie Product Image

This movie is my favorite. It has Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Banks,Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Channing Tatum, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman and more.

If so many people didn't live, eat and breathe Legos this movie would have BOMBED! But no, people who never let Mommy sell or give away their precious Lego collections or even let her put them in storage had to go and "prove" their loyalty to the manufactures of these foot-injuring wastes of plastic.

No question. It was so surprising! I only wish they had gotten an actual cameo from the original BIONICLE characters in it. Like, Emmet and Wyldstyle could have met the Toa Mata! Not just showcased an image of them.

I hate how the Academy didn't even give this a nomination for best animated feature, biggest mistake by the Academy in history.

3 How to Train Your Dragon 2

If you asked me last year, I'd probably say Penguins Of Madagascar. Maybe even The Nut Job (I know people hate lt, but I enjoy lt a lot.). But P.O.M. lost my vote when I found out that they didn't include He Is Dave in the movie. How To Train Your Dragon 2 is just ausome. It completely outdoes How To Train Your Dragon. I recall the animation being spectacular, the story being grand, the characters being emotionally investing & more. The only con is the pretty weak villain. I didn't gain much from him. This totally outdoes Shrek 2, Kung Fu Panda 2 & Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. And that's saying something, since I really like all of them (except for M.E.2A., since I'm not a fan of the Madagascar series). This is the Toy Story 3 of DreamWorks. I strongly recommend.

Although there were no Pixar movies released this year, there were 3 movies that were released this year that are of "Pixar" quality. As much as I adored The Lego Movie and Big Hero 6, How to Train Your Dragon 2 was the animated masterpiece of 2014.

On a related note, the Academy sucks for not nominating the Lego Movie for Best Animated Feature.

Why is How to train your Dragon 2 only NUMBER 5! It thrashes Mr Peabody and Sherman and Rio 2 by HEAPS! This movie is a masterpiece and anyone who thinks that Rio 2 or Mr Peabody and Sherman is better than this, they should go watch this and think again!

It was okay but not the best. I prefer the first one, but this just seemed to redo everything from the original. It ruined everything I liked about the first one.

4 The Book of Life The Book of Life Product Image

My Spanish teacher showed this movie to me and my class the other day after our midterm since it was almost Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. And I gotta say, I really enjoyed this movie! To think that the people who were behind the negatively panned Free Birds made this one-of-a-kind masterpiece! Each and every song they made covers of for the soundtrack was splendid, the animation is outstanding and I loved each of the character designs; my favorites being Xibalba and La Muerte, and the characters were all so interesting and fun to watch! This is definitely going onto any remix I make related to a best movies list! I love this movie so much, I'm practically obsessed with it now! What an awesome film.

Really great movie! Awesome soundtrack of popular songs and AMAZING original songs. The cast was perfect and the visuals were absolutely outstanding. I love the message that this movie gave. I just saw it for the first time yesterday and I've re-watched it twice because of how good it is!

These guys made Free Birds last year! Do you how big of an improvement that is?

My ass, how the crap job been better than the book of life?

5 Mr. Peabody & Sherman Mr. Peabody & Sherman Product Image

Pretty cool movie, but overall I thought it was slightly forgettable

6 Rio 2 Rio 2 Product Image

It was okay but why is it higher than big hero 6 and how to train your dragon 2?!

I like Rio 2 but not as much as How to train your dragon 2.

7 Song of the Sea Song of the Sea Product Image

This should be WAYYY higher on the list. Song of The Sea is a rare hand-drawn gem made by an Irish studio. If you love Studio Ghibli, this is the PERFECT movie for you.

I'm not kidding, go watch it, its way better then Frozen.

This was snubbed at the Academy Awards. Beautiful animation, a great story, solid characters, and a very creative premise. Damn you, Big Hero 6, and your overrated marketability.

Big Hero 6 is very good, but it certainly doesn't grab us the same way as Song of the Sea. - The Ultimate Daredevil to Phenanas

You should watch this! This is amazing! I loved it so much!

8 My Little Pony: Rainbow Rocks My Little Pony: Rainbow Rocks Product Image

I loved this film. It wasn't as good as the first film, but I still loved it. The best part was the Snips and Snails rap scene. That was awesome. The Lego Movie sucked. It was so stupid. Why do so many people love it?

I LOVE this movie! It deserves to be on top. Like the songs, they don't just sing in random places, the characters plan it!

Better than the first movie!

9 The Boxtrolls The Boxtrolls Product Image

A great movie I really loved it.

10 The Tale of Princess Kaguya

A gorgeously animated film based on a Japanese folk tale, "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter". Plenty of heart and warmth, with a strong message.

Imma watch this tonight (It's 13.12.15)
I got this movie along with From Up on Poppy Hill and I've seen FUOPH, only a small part of it, though.

The Contenders
11 Penguins of Madagascar: Operation Special Delivery Penguins of Madagascar: Operation Special Delivery Product Image
12 Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return

The best by far.

13 The Nut Job The Nut Job Product Image

I have watched only a small portion of it, but it was quite forgettable

14 Penguins of Madagascar Penguins of Madagascar Product Image
15 Planes: Fire and Rescue Planes: Fire and Rescue Product Image

I love this movie so much, same as the first film. These franchise of Planes are way better than Mulan and Toy Story 1. These Planes movies are awesome like the Cars movies, and different than them to be honest. Dusty is my usual favorite character in the Planes franchise, he is awesome and cute.

I watched it once but I need to watch it again to see what I think of it.

A very good movie I really loved it.

A very good movie I liked it.
