ANIMATION/MOVIES – Top Ten Dreamworks Animated Movies
What do I mean by this? Well, they dare to make action adventure movies, catering a tad more to the male audience, than any other American Animation studios.
Yes this means that their movies aren’t as successful, considering it’s a demographic very difficult to get to go watch an animated movie, but they try. For this, I’m grateful, it means there’s an animation studio that makes movies that I will find appealing.
After thinking about it, I decided to make a list of my top ten Dreamworks movies.
Let’s get started.
After watching it, I was pleasantly surprised. It was reminiscent of Pixar’s Ratatouille but much less focused. It also veers away from Pixar’s movie enough to make it it’s own movie.
I liked how it had a lot of minority characters in it. That part was great. I liked how they incorporated the “Fast and the Furious” racing culture in there too.
Had they stuck more with that I think the movie would have been much more successful,. But they added a big snail culture thing at the beginning and made it more about the Indy 500, which didn’t fit with the other stuff.
They tried to cater to too many groups all at once and really failed to nail all of them. All that said, I still liked the movie for the bits they did get right.
This is the movie that put Dreamworks on the map. It’s first real hit. So very funny. So unexpected.
The ugliness of the designs ended up not being a big deal compared to how fun this movie was.
It’s difficult now, to remember how refreshingly funny and fun this movie was, now that it has so many sequels. That said, this is still a funny movie.
It’s a great parody of a horror movie starting Wallace & Gromit. It’s so good and darn funny.
The animation and action is top notch. It worth watching over and over.
My kids love it with good reason. This is a great movie.
I found myself really enjoying myself. The twists and turns in the movie where fun and it made me laugh.
If I’d liked the designs of the characters a bit more, it may have been higher on my list.
This is a movie I wouldn’t have minded seeing a sequel to.
The problem is that the audience that they were catering to, which was teenage boys, were’nt going to go watch a movie about Santa even it he DID have swords.
I really liked this movie because it was a superhero movie. I liked the action and the story was not bad. I also liked the designs of the characters.
This was a fun movie. I have a feeling adults liked this movie more than the kids who watched it did. And I doubt enough teenage boys watched it.
This one could almost be called a masterpiece. It’s also got a special place in my heart because I went to the Dreamworks studios for the first time around the time it was being developed and I got to see some amazing concept art for it.
The story was great, the animation was fantastic. The designs were a bit more watered down than the ones I saw but still, they where great.
The art direction is stunning. The music is not bad.
This movie moved me and it was such a promising start for the studio. They did something with hand drawn animation that no big studio had done before. It was a risky movie that paid off.
I liked this movie quite a bit. It was fun, funny and action packed.
It gave me exactly what I wanted and I left happy. I wouldn’t mind seeing yet another one of these.
3. The Croods
By the time the credits where rolling I was wiping tears from my eyes. What happened?! This movie was great.
I laughed, I cried, I empathized. It was really good.
I liked the designs, the characters, the story…wow. So good, and so unexpected. This movie is so worth watching.
It’s a great family movie.
Everything about this movie is really fun. If only more animated movies where like this.
Hands down one of my favorite Dreamworks movies.
Great action, great characters, great designs. Very solid story.
It was a brilliant idea very well executed. I’m glad there was a sequel and I can’t wait to see more.
