Top Ten Dreamworks Animated Moviesdragon13304
The Top Ten
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!
One of the first movies to completely change the fairytale genre - Ang2001V 111 Comments
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 ...more
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 ...more
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... I've watched it everyday for two weeks now!V 186 Comments
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
"I thought it's just an ordinary peach" so funny
Great movie - iliekpiezV 47 Comments
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 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!

It's a funny movie
THe BEst fuNny movie! AnD has a good Story! I loved it! And I have watched AlL the part Of this MoVie!
This movie is good very nice I didn't saw this much good movie of dreamworks did you like it
I hate MadagascarV 29 Comments
This movie was incredible, beautifully animated, great stroy line my great childhood heroesin one movie, this movie definitely deserves the top spot!
This is probably my favorite Dreamworks film because while it has fun and playful humor it also knows when to be more serious and dark. Plus the animation is very well done (even for Dreamworks standards) and the story obviously was given a lot of effort as well. I don't get why it's number six though. It has aspects that can be applied to both children and adults and is well-balanced between funny and serious. While Shrek does have a fair amount of decency to it, the jokes still can be a little bit too adult for young children. Then with Kung Fu Panda it does have some seriousness but it seems to be more fun and games for the younger ones. The same goes for Madagascar (sort of). Then with How to Train Your Dragon it does have more of a Guardians (ish) feel to it but I don't know the plot didn't really seem like me and in the beginning Hiccup is kind of a whiny brat or is it just in my head? Either way my vote goes to this one. - Anonymousxcxc
¡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 is amazing oh my god need to get higher - FroglambV 63 Comments
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
Ok yea. This movie is pretty damn awesome. Its, in my opinion, better than most early 20s superhero movies.V 37 Comments
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.
In a rare turn of events, Dreamworks got something to, well, work. In an even rarer turn of events, this sequel managed to surpass the original in terms of quality. It packs a lot more development for Poe and plenty of fast, fun combat. While this movie takes a more serious approach than it's younger brother, the comedy of the original is still present and most of it is pretty funny. It looks better, sounds better, and is written better than the first. The only way the original surpasses this one is in the sound department. A must see for all who enjoyed the first installment, and it is my favorite Dreamworks movie thus far.
It is even better than the first film - nonamegameV 40 Comments
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 love this movie's soundtrack! I love how it isn't like most family movies where they just pull out cheesy, dated rap music, but they actually have sweet, catchy, and calm songs that you'll never get tired of listening to. I don't know a single movie where I like ALL the songs on the soundtrack. Whenever I hear any of the songs, I get a huge nostalgic flashback. Family of Me, Heist, and rocking the Suburbs are my favorite (which are basically all the songs but one, and I still love that one too! )

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!
While I do believe that the first How to Train You Dragon is a little bit better, this is still one of the worthiest sequels I have ever seen. Like some critics have said, this is the Empire Strikes Back of animated movies. Deeper story, wider world, and shocking twists, not to mention a much darker, mature plot. If you thought the trailer gave a major spoiler, watch this movie and see that wasn't even half of it. John Powell returns to compose the soundtrack, and it is as gorgeous as ever, dare I say it's better than the first movie at certain points? And the animation is top notch, just like with it's prequel. Flaws? Some of the major characters are given lesser screen time, especially the other teens. Plus the movie is a bit too fast paced, so some people may have to see it twice to truly appreciate it. And the main villain is a bit too generic. But asides that, it's a movie that must not be missed, whether you love animation or not.
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.

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!
It's 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
Such a beautiful film - FroglambV 65 Comments
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.
I loved this movie! I was never a very religious person, but even from a non-religious standpoint, this movie holds up as one of Dreamworks's finest. The story, the visuals, the voices, the music, all make this one of the most memorable animated movies I have seen. Despite my atheism, this picture still holds a place in my heart, and hopefully will continue to inspire generations to come
It is really good. - WorldPuncher47592834V 42 Comments
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
I love this movie it is so entertaining and funny and closer to the end it has a huge twist. It has great voice acting as well as amazing graphics. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys good animations. 5 Stars.
This is awesome. I and bro love this movie.
Loved this!V 11 Comments
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.
A good movie. - WorldPuncher47592834V 9 Comments
This movie is really nice. The part where Susan enlarged was the best. I wouldn't say it's the best but deserves to be in top 10.
Power time. Most excellent! Movie is plentiful time for each and other.
I did truly love this movie
Sheer Terrible, The president is so ugly. - WorldPuncher47592834V 5 Comments
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
Pretty good. - WorldPuncher47592834V 16 Comments
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/
Hey it's the horse from tangled. - WorldPuncher47592834V 18 Comments
Dreamworks so far has sort of been cursed when it comes to third movie installments because shrek 3. And Madagascar 3 were the worst in the series. I hope this does not happen to Kung fu panda
Excellent movie. Excellent Trilogy.
This movie and How to train your dragon 2 are the best Dreamworks animation movies ever! They are both better than Home! Home is the worst Dreamworks movie ever!
Why isn't this number1? It's the best in dreamworks careerV 9 Comments
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.
Are you kidding me the bee movie is the greatest movie of all time. Ever heard of a Jerry Seinfeld? Or a Renee Zellweger? Or I don't know Matthew Broderick and Patrick Warburton and Oprah Winfrey and John Goodman? Well they are in the movie, you goobuses. The box even says, "Bee Movie is an A." I am glad to see, however, that the trashfires that are Madagascar 2, Antz, and Puss and Boots are higher than this classic film, which is only at 22. Can we please at least get ahead of the cinematic fecal matter that is The Croods? Larry King even showed up for this movie you slammer-jammers.
This should be #2 - jameshowardV 21 Comments
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 - dragon13304
A brilliant sequel surprised it's so low - FroglambV 7 Comments
Nice movie, even background score firework looks like its just made for the movie scene only!
Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted is a flawless, revolutionary comeback to the Madagascar franchise. I am betting Katy Perry and Alex the Lion are in love with each other. If they were in each others' realities, bestiality would then be liable to happen.
Should Be Higher. Best Movie Of Madagascar Trilogy - Ardan
Very good - FroglambV 21 Comments
Are you kidding me?! 20?! The Croods was by far one of the BEST Dreamworks films OF ALL TIME. It has fun characters, gorgeous scenery, and really amazing themes as well. This will always be my favorite dreamworks movie, it's so good.
This is one of the funniest films I've seen. If your looking for an animation comedy I would definitely recommend this film. - Froglamb
I think Emma Stone would be a good voice for Roll Light from Mega Man: Battle Network series.
uh - WorldPuncher47592834V 11 Comments
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 deserves a lot more respect. It's not only funning and has very well played acting, but the story is as good. I would this easily in the top 3, maybe higher.
This movie is deserving to have an oscar
Enjoyed it... good enough - nonamegameV 10 Comments
This should be in the top ten! '!,
This is so much better than a majority of the movies on the list but I guess it's lower cause another studio made it

Much better than the third.
This is my favorite Shrek movie of all time why do people give it so much hate it's awesome.
This one was good actually better than the 3rd one
An improvement over the 3rd - Cartoonfan202
Well, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time's successors were really decent to me as well. I think the main reason why I used to think they were both bad was because I always thought that it was weaker than its predecessors. E-Rod proves to us why Shrek the Third had such a ridiculous execution, especially by portraying the traditional fairy tale princesses to be snobby prisses. Shrek: Forever After is decent to me now. DreamWorks is now making Shrek 5. Even though DreamWorks might hit many notes right, they will run out of ideas after having Shrek sequels. - The Ultimate Daredevil, who finds DreamWorks Animation movies to be mediocre at worst
Just like how in the Shrek franchise Shrek 1 and 2 are good and Shrek the Third and Shrek: Forever After suck, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time were outstanding Mario & Luigi games whilst Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team were both horrible. No wonder Shrek: Forever After and Shrek the Third were both not put on the list! Because they were not decent.
Bowser's Inside Story and Dream Team were no where near bad games the were both great
Hate this movie, it Sucks major butt
The first 2 are good ones, The 4th movie improved. - WorldPuncher47592834V 7 Comments
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
This movie kinda sucksV 11 Comments
This is my favourite movie. I really love this movie. The story is really heart touching. And I love all the songs of this movie. I want to thanks to the creator of this movie that they presented it. I like its animations, graphics and best of all story was awesome.
I agree with the person the person that stood up for this moving I love it
This movie was my favorite movie from Dreamworks. Super creative, and super touching. I don't know why it's so low on the list

And different gives me anxiety attacks. This was still quite heartwarming though, even if I didn't much care for it. - LeiaSkywalker
This is a very good movie, the animation on the the villain eris with her hair is really impressive, the story has some good adventure, action and some good comedy, it's a movie that adults, teenagers and children can enjoy and there are some jokes that all ages can understand. This movie should have been in the top 10.
I love the animation in this movie. It will wow you with spectacular colours and action.
If spectacular animation and a thrilling/underrated story aren't enough to get you hooked, then take this instead: Brad Pitt is the main character.
I loved this when I was younger! Not sure it would hold up, but it's definitely worth another watch to see if it does!V 4 Comments
It has Batman, Ariel, and Luke Skywalker, a direct to video prequel to one of my favorite DreamWorks movies, and I love the Book of Genesis. The songs are okay at best, but the rest of this film is so underrated. It needs more love.
Joseph: King of Dreams is one of my favorite animated movies of all time. It was awesome and it is my favorite DreamWorks movie. - TailchaserFan10
I honestly enjoyed this more than Prince of Egypt. I love these stories.
