Top 10 Most Underrated Animated Movies of the 2010s


The Top Ten

1 Kubo and the Two Strings

I love this movie. - Cartoonfan202

Just saw it a week ago and I LOVED it. Although I feel like only a more mature audience will be able to truly appreciate it for what it is. - Anonymousxcxc

The animation looks pretty. - RaccoonCartoon

The critics loved "Kubo", but nobody saw it.

2 Megamind

The brain of a villain with the heart of a hero. What's not to like? It was quirky and unusual plus it had great music. I loved Megamind's character. He was the the underdog that was always living in the hero's shadow. He just wanted to be appreciated and noticed and when he wasn't he decided to be a villain. I enjoyed watching his character evolve into a hero. The movie had it all: humor, action, romance, and diabolical dance numbers. - NerdBunny

I was surprised at how clever the humor was in this one. I have to say, this was a lot better than what I expected. It's deserving of a high place on this list, for sure. - cjWriter1997

This one's good. Usually movies are about a superhero saving the day. This is the complete opposite! A movie about a villain. Wreck It Ralph was released after this. - RaccoonCartoon

Megamind is a funny super villain. This movie is really a good comedy movie.
Especially, I like the song " I'm Bad" at the end, which is the highlight of this movie.
Really, I'm gonna say it, "It is not the under ratings we should care about. It is upto our own ratings that we like the movie or not".

3 Epic

Blue Sky's creativity went through the roof with this to me. I really enjoyed and wish it did better than Ice Age 4 and Rio 2. I found it better and people missed a chance with this. - lolsy

It was okay, I guess it is too generic. (That three-legged pug though.) - TristGamer

This movie was alright. I was the only one who did a tiny giggle in the cinema. - RaccoonCartoon

This was just a generic one to me. - SailorSedna

4 Paranorman

I like this movie. It is about a boy who can talk to ghost and everyone thinks he is crazy but depend on him to save them all in the end. I think it is a really good animated movie. - lolsy

Really fun and scary, kept me interested throughout.

5 Monsters University

It was okay for the most part but I felt it should've been a sequel instead of a prequel. I want to know what happens with Sully and Boo! - cjWriter1997

I honestly thought this was a great movie and way more developed than the two previous Pixar movies Brave and Cars 2. - Mcgillacuddy

Finally number 10, this movie is one of my Top 10 Pixar Movies, it shows a sense of friendship and how Mike and Sulley became friends. - TristGamer

I don't agree quite frankly. Its meh at most. But yea it is certainly better than Cars 2 - enderderp

6 Frankenweenie

Underrated as hell man. Not talked about enough because I found it better than Shrek and Shrek 2. I found it amazing. - lolsy

This is a great film but a bit scary for younger kids

7 Rise of the Guardians

Yes! I really enjoyed this movie and I like the fact all our holiday heroes e.g. Santa. Are all one. Like the Nightmare Before Christmas, it was an very good movie and one of the best that year for animation and Dreamworks alike. - lolsy

One of DreamWorks most beautiful films. - cjWriter1997

It is an underrated classic, I can't believe it hardly gets praised. - TristGamer

8 Shaun the Sheep Movie

I have ALWAYS loved both Shaun the Sheep Wallace and Gromit. This movie was hilarious and brought me back to my childhood

I don't understand why this movie is so underrated. It is amazing and full of good humor for the whole family to join in on.

I couldn't care less about the whole 'underrated' criteria a ton of lists have overused on here, though I absolutely loved this movie. Animated comedies nowadays definitely need to take inspiration from this movie's hilarious quirks! - Entranced98

My mother LOVED this movie lol

9 Arthur Christmas

A great Christmas movie, this is great Christmas movie and I like the fact it is catching with modern times and like it for that fact - lolsy

You Put This Here Because I Liked The Movie... - VideoGamefan5

Great movie and one of Aardman's best. Funny, charming and very Christmasy, this feel-great film should hopefully become a festive favourite in the future. - Mrveteran

10 9

@RaccoonCartoon The dolls in the movie are numbered 1-9 and 9 is the main character. - Mcgillacuddy

I don't know about you, but I'm confused to as why a movie is titled ''9''. What about 10, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and so on? - RaccoonCartoon

The trailer though...

And the movie's great too. INSANELY underrated. - NikBrusk

The Contenders

11 The Good Dinosaur

I liked this movie. The landmark looked so realistic I actually thought it was a real photo with animated dinosaurs. - RaccoonCartoon

I actually kinda liked this movie. Granted, it's far from Pixar's best but it wasn't bad at all. - Mcgillacuddy

The story was just bland to me, I guess it just wasn't something people were looking for. - TristGamer

I think this movie is popular and underrated too. - AinezoChan

12 The Boxtrolls

I like the fact that most of my animated movies on this list as Stop-Motion animation. It is great and creative movie throughout and give it a watch. - lolsy

One of the most overrated movies of 2014. Whenever someone says that they don't like The Boxtrolls in favor of Big Hero 6, they get thumbed down. >:(

13 Rango

Haha! I remember watching this as a kid. - AinezoChan

This may have been made by Nickelodeon (the company that brought us The Thundermans, Sanjay & Craig, Deadtime Stories, The Mighty B., Nick Jr., the Fred Figglehorn franchise, Fanboy & Chum-Chum, Barnyard, the recent Dan Schneider Nickcoms like Sam & Cat, Henry Danger, Zoey 101 and Game Shakers), but Rango takes place in the Old West and does not pander to little kids like genders are COMPLETELY different from each other.

14 Wreck-It Ralph

Most people didn't like it because they aren't gamers. The 8 year olds who went to see it with their parents probably never played classic old games before. - RaccoonCartoon

Wreck It Ralph is so underrated. People should pay more attention to this masterpiece than watch those horrible movies such as Norm of the North and Emoji Movie. - AinezoChan

This movie is not underrated - XtremeNerdz12

This movie has one of the most heartbreaking scenes in cinematic history(ok maybe that's a little exaggerated). I just don't feel it's recognised as much as other movies, that aren't even as good.

15 It's Such a Beautiful Day

Amazing and beautiful movie

This whole movie is such a beautiful day! - The Ultimate Daredevil

16 Puss in Boots

Can't believe my sister used to play this movie over and over. It was still cute, though. - RaccoonCartoon

This one is pretty funny too. I liked it more than some of the Shrek films. - cjWriter1997

Very underrated dreamworks movie that has been regonised as good movie like a prequel but a very good one and I really enjoyed this movie - lolsy

17 The Pirates! Band of Misfits

This movie looks hilarious yet heartwarming and beautiful. - AinezoChan

I like this movie because it is British so that makes everything better. And they could do with pirates increased the possiblites of Aardman animation. - lolsy

18 Minions

Amazing film I love it when little gru comes

I love this film, I don't understand why so many hate it. It's a good film for all the family. I'm nearly 17 and I'm love with animated movies like this. - WinchesterGirl26

Minions is too overrated to be honest. I still like it though. - AinezoChan

NO, IT'S OVER RATED! - LemonComputer

19 Mr. Peabody & Sherman

This movie deserves better. - AinezoChan

Pretty much just Snoopy and Charlie Brown with a time machine. Nothing to see here. - RaccoonCartoon

20 The Croods

Croods! Need I say more? This movie deserves better too. - AinezoChan

Holy...this is the most underrated. The story was outstanding and wasnt kidsy like Minions. - TristGamer
