Salmon's Dreamworks Movie Ranking: Worst to Best

Dreamworks is like the Brad Pitt of animation studios. You love it or you hate it. But that isn't to say that a lot of there movies are good, some even fantastic. So I shall rank them. (If I seem a bit biased on one entry, it is probably because I haven't seen it yet and I am going by how it seems.)

35. The Boss Baby. It is weird how the movie is about LITTLE KIDS, but it feels like a DRUG TRIP. Steve Buscemi's worst role was probably in this, and the character Eugene is just ridiculously awful.

Best Performance: Tobey Maguire as Adult Tim. The one performance that was a bit okay.
Worst Performance: Conrad Vernon as Eugene. Gingerbread Man, what happened to your voice actor's roles?

34. Shark Tale. Man, was I torn between putting this at the bottom of putting Boss Baby at the bottom, but I chose Boss Baby. However, this film has disgusting animation, and the sharks were probably the better part of the film. Oscar is so unlikable and not even Robert De Niro could save it.

Best Performance: Robert De Niro as Don Lino. I did say Robert De Niro couldn't save it, but he was still the best performance.
Worst Performance: Ziggy Marley and Doug E. Doug as the jellyfish. Annoying Jamaican stereotypes. They get Bob Marley's son just so they wouldn't be accused of racism against Jamaicans.

33. Trolls. This one is really lame. Smurfs rip-off? Check. Love Interest that turns out to be a back-stabbing jerk, who surprise surprise is voiced by Russell Brand? Check. Butchering of a classical masterpiece by Edvard Grieg and a great song by Gorillaz? Check. Anna Kendrick? Check. Yeah, this one's bad.

Best Performance: Christine Baranski as Chef. The time when the villain is the best part of the film.
Worst Performance: James Corden as Biggie. Its James Corden. Do I need to explain?

32. Shrek the Third. Way to butcher an amazing franchise, Dreamworks.

Best Performance: John Cleese and Julie Andrews as King Harold and Queen Lillian. One of these people can always be the saving grace in a bad film.

Worst Performance: Larry King and Regis Philbin as Doris and Mabel. I'll stick to Dipper and Mabel, not ugly stepsisters voiced by men. (Fun Fact: Larry King was actually on Gravity Falls)

31. Shrek Forever After. It may have given the series a great ending (eve though there is a Shrek 5 coming out for whatever reason) but it certainly was not that better than the 3rd one.

Best Performance: John Cleese and Julie Andrews as King Harold and Queen Lillian. Like I stated before.
Worst Performance: Jasper Johannes Andrews and Nina Zoe Bakshi as Fergus, Farkle, and Felicia. I don't want to seem rude to children, but Shrek's children are gross. And keep in mind that Kathy Griffin was in this film and she wasnt even the worst performance.

30. Bee Movie. Memes aside, this movie is really lame. And Barry is literally just a bee version of Jerry Seinfeld, and they could have made an awesome bee villain, but they had to make an angry ex-husband the villain.

Best Performance: Jim Cummings as the Narrator. Yup, the NARRATOR had the best performance.
Worst Performance: Larry King as a bee version of himself. Thank goodness Dreamworks stopped having Larry King play weird versions of himself.

29. The Penguins of Madagascar. The Series was better.

Best Performance: Benedict Cumberbatch as Agent Classified. Saving grace.
Worst Performance: Conrad Vernon as Rico's noises. John DiMaggio was better.

28. Turbo. Weird concept. And Guy Gagne certainly wasn't that good of a villain, just a backstabber.

Best Performance: Samuel L. Jackson as Whiplash. Even in a film about fast snails, he is still awesome.
Worst Performance: Ken Jeong as Kim-Ly. It's pretty much Ken Jeong himself but shorter, dressed in drag, and animated.

27. Home. I honestly liked this, but it has enough flaws to be this low.

Best Performance: Jennifer Lopez as Tip's Mom. She's a good character.
Worst Performance: Matt L. Jones as Kyle. Bad character, no Kyles can be trusted.

26. Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas. Just forgettable honestly.

Best Performance: Michelle Pfeiffer as Eris. She's awesome. Character and actress.
Worst Performance: Chung Chan as Li. No public images, a stereotypical Asian name, and it is the only role of his. I detect a fake actor. Let's call the real actor.. Jackie Chan (X-Files theme plays)

25. Madagascar. Way too hyper. The sequels were an improvement.

Best Performance: Elisa Gabrielli as Old Lady. Badass old women in fiction are awesome.
Worst Performance: Bob Saget as Zoo Animal. Wait, when was he in it?

24. The Road to el Dorado. It was okay, but not the best.

Best Performance: Armand Assante as Tzekel-Kan. Villains are awesome.
Worst Performance: Elijah Chiang and Cyrus Shaki-Khan as 2 kids. They are kids, but they didn't contribute much.

23. Over the Hedge. Okay, but a bit mediocre. RIP Garry Shandling though

Best Performance: Garry Shandling (RIP) as Verne. Did a great job as the wise, old character type
Worst Performance: Joel McCrary as Dr. Dennis. An off-screen Dr. Phil parody, how nice.. (sarcasm)

22. Puss in Boots. Definitely an improvement over the last 2 Shrek films, but it started the "surprise villain" cliche in animated films, which really annoys me.

Best Performance: Antonio Banderas as Puss in Boots. What can't this man do.
Worst Performance: Mike Mitchell as Andy Beanstock. Oh no, not him.

21. The Croods. Seems okay, I guess

Best Performance: Ryan Reynolds as Guy. Definitely a great character.
Worst Performance: Chris Sanders as Belt. Stitch, what happened to you? You were just "there" in this film.

20. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. An improvement over the 1st one, but not amazing. My sister would disagree.

Best Performance: Bernie Mac (RIP) as Zuba. Mufasa rip-off but still a good performance.
Worst Performance: Fergie as Hippo Girlfriend. being in this film does not mean you should me.

19. Monsters vs. Aliens. I honestly loved it, but it has SO MANY flaws.

Best Performance: Hugh Laurie as Dr. Cockroach Phd. Great performance by a great actor.
Worst Performance: Will Arnett as the Missing Link: A telephone describes this character: BBBORRING!

18. Flushed Away. Looks neat but I haven't seen it.

Best Performance: Ian McKellen as The Toad. It's Ian McKellen, are you expecting a bad performance.
Worst Performance: Shane Richie as Sid. JERK.

17. Mr. Peabody and Sherman. This one was pretty good, but it was a huge step down from the other film the director made. That other film was The Lion King.

Best Performance: Stanley Tucci as Leonardo da Vinci. He was straight up hilarious in this role.

16. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. Great film, I was really surprised. I don't care how much hate I'll get, I have loved those books and still do. But they have made better.

Best Performance: Ed Helms as Captain Underpants. Funny and provides a great performance.
Worst Performance: Brian Posehn as Mr. Rected. Why does this guy keep getting voice acting jobs? He's much better as a comedian.

15. Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted. The best film in the series, no doubt.

Best Performance: Frances McDormand as Chantel Dubois. Amazing actress.
Worst Performance: Martin Short as Stefano. Great comedic actor, why did he just play a dumb circus animal?

14. Shrek. Overrated, but good. But how people rank it over the second is beyond me.

Best Performance: Mike Myers as Shrek. Classic performance.
Worst Performance: Vincent Cassel as Monsieur Hood. Robin Hood is British, even though he was French in the film. However, Puss in Boots is originally French; there just wasn't any truly bad performances.

13. Kung Fu Panda. Great, but the sequels were better.

Best Performance: Angelina Jolie as Tigress. Why doesn't she do more voice acting? She fits with it.
Worst Performance: Jackie Chan as Monkey. If you watched the film you'd know why.

12. Chicken Run. Haven't seen it but it looks neat.

I will add the best and worst performance when I watch it.

11. Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. This one is beautiful, happy, and sad. Amazing. But they have made better.

Best Performance: Matt Damon as Narrator. Great narration job, even if Tom Hanks or Robert Redford couldn't do it.
Worst Performance: None

10. Antz. Great film. But really.. not appropriate for kids. At all.

Best Performance: Danny Glover as Barbatus. Soothing, one of the blackest voices ever, and really soothing. Sad that his character died.
Worst Performance: Christopher Walken as Cutter. Literally just his own voice.

9. Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit: This one is a classic. RIP Peter Sallis.

Best Performance: Ralph Fiennes as Victor Quartermaine. A bit pompous, but still great.
Worst Performance: Peter Sallis (RIP) as Wallace. Yes, he is the main character, but no bad performances were in this film, and somehow he came out as worst.

8. Kung Fu Panda 3. The second best in the franchise.

Best Performance: Again, Angelina Jolie as Tigress.
Worst Performance: Again, Jackie Chan as Monkey

7. Shrek 2. Best in this series.

Best Performance: Jennifer Saunders as Fairy Godmother. Great villain performance from a great actress.
Worst Performance: I really don't know.

6. Megamind. Very underrated, and I honestly prefer it over it's rival film, Despicable Me, because the minion in this one is better than the minion in that one.

Best Performance: Brad Pitt as Metro Man. He really needs to do more voice acting.
Worst Performance: Ben Stiller as Bernard. When Megamind was disguised as Bernard, I couldn't tell if it was Ben Stiller or Will Ferrell. Bernard sounded super boring in the one line he had where I knew it was Ben.

5. How to Train Your Dragon. The second one was better, but this was still amazing.

Best Performance: Gerard Butler as Stoick. Great leader, great performance.
No bad performances.

4. Kung Fu Panda 2. Simply Amazing.

Best Performance: Gary Oldman as Shen. Even better than Angelina!
Worst Performance: You know who it is, his initials are J.C.

3. How to Train Your Dragon 2. Simply amazing as well.

Best Performance: Cate Blanchett as Valka. She's awesome.
Again, no bad performances.
2. The Prince of Egypt. Beautiful animation, great cast, simply amazing.

Best Performance: Ofra Haza (RIP) as Yocheved. She may have played a minor role, but in the few lines she had, she was amazing.
Worst Performance: Martin Short and Steve Martin as Huy and Hotep. Can't believe this movie actually has bad characters.

and the number 1 best Dreamworks film IN MY OPINION is..
1. Rise of the Guardians. Simply an amazing film, and while extremely underrated, I consider it the studio's best.

Best Performance: Well, Chris Pine as Jack. There is literally no bad performances or characters.

Well, that took a while. Hope you enjoy.

"Brad Pitt"
Why does he get hate, he is a good actor?
I think more people like him
Shouldn't it be Dreamworks is like the Frozen of animation studios - iliekpiez

Well, Dreamorks doesn't have a crazy rabid fandom AND a crazy rabid hatedom like Frozen. - 445956

true - iliekpiez

I also want a bigger explaination for how you enjoy them, and list the good and the bad things about it, but along with the voice actors performance but would much rather a bigger explainations as a whole.
This post could easily be a remake, if you add a bigger reasons, which should realistically be the most important thing. That is my only issue, but it is a major one. - iliekpiez

I made a similar post on my profile, if you would like to check it out - Mcgillacuddy

This is one of my favorite posts I've seen so far. It actually looks at voice acting! - Cyri

I might do my own version
but then again
I might to too similar to mcgillacuddys
I won't
I have an idea for a post.
I VOW TO - iliekpiez
