Top 10 DreamWorks Animation Movies

Ranked by MovieFanatic

10. Megamind

Will Ferrell as an evil animated villain? Brad Pitt as a slothy superhero who just wants to watch TV and drink beer? Tina Fey as a spunky, willing-to-do-anything-to-get-the-story reporter? Sold, sold and sold. Wickedly drawn and impeccably smart, Megamind showed that DreamWorks Animation can go outside of their comfort zone and create a madcap comedy with a heart of gold.

9. Rise of the Guardians

Taking the children's book by William Joyce and bringing it to the big screen as an animated feature instead of a CGI-heavy live action film was a stroke of genius. Then the talented animators at DreamWorks Animation could bring more fully to life the vision of Joyce who imagined a world where all of childhood's fantasy figures would know each other and form an Avengers-type force for good.

Then, there's the voice cast of Rise of the Guardians. Chris Pine is the lead as Jack Frost, Alec Baldwin as North (aka Santa Claus), Isla Fisher is the Tooth Fairy and Hugh Jackman is the Easter Bunny. Let’s hope this one becomes a franchise.

6. Puss in Boots

You want to do a spin-off of Shrek featuring that talking cat? It seemed like a crazy idea, but in the hands of the fabled animation studio, Puss in Boots proved to be a brilliant idea. That largely had to do with the man who voiced the character that wore cat’s boots, Antonio Banderas. In fact, it could be said he was one of the best things about the latter Shrek movies!

2. Tie: Shrek and Shrek 2

Not that we didn’t like Shrek 3 and 4 (they’re below in our honorable mentions), but there was something truly special and revolutionary about the first two Shrek movies. Casting Mike Myers as a Scottish ogre, Cameron Diaz as a princess (er… ogre) and Eddie Murphy as a sassy donkey was a stroke of brilliance. Shrek filmmakers’ ability to not only channel some of our favorite nursery rhymes into a single world, but also to parody our current pop culture universe is astounding on every level.

1. How to Train Your Dragon

The immense response to the How to Train Your Dragon 2 teaser trailer is proof that DreamWorks Animation struck a truly special chord with their 2010 smash hit. Jay Baruchel voices Hiccup, a Scottish son of a warrior who was always too skinny to do much damage as a medieval fighter. So, when he stumbled on an orphaned dragon and managed to not only make the fire-breather passive towards him, but also train him to soar like a horse with wings, it catapulted Hiccup to a world of almost celebrity in his village, and certainly made his father proud.
