What are some of your favorite Dreamworks Animation movies. You can pick either the CGI ones or the hand-drawn ones? My personal favorite is How To Train Your Dragon. That movie is just mind-blowing to me. It doesn't even feel like it was made by Dreamworks. In fact, it feels a lot more like a Pixar movie. The humor was witty and it didn't try too hard to be funny. The relationship between Hiccup and Toothless was emotional and well-developed. The romance in the movie worked and the two leads had chemistry. The score was really good. The voice acting was pretty good as well. The animation is fantastic and it really shines in the epic final battle. The ending was just plain brilliant and well thought out. My second favorite is the original Shrek. I watched it hundreds of times as a kid. It never failed to make me laugh. As I got older, I realized that movie is still really funny as an adult and that it has many jokes for children as well as a bunch of jokes that adults will laugh at. My third and fourth favorites are the Kung Fu Panda movies. They're great family movies and they're also pretty dark too. I like both of them about the same, but if I had to choose, I would say that the second is better than the first because I liked Po's character arc in that movie. The villains in these movies are really well-written and they're neither bad for badness sake or bad because they had a crappy life that led them down the wrong path. The fight scenes and the score are incredible and match the Asian backdrop well. At one point I said to myself that the people who made these should have made The Last Airbender movie. This also has great voice acting in it and the voices match the characters well. My fifth favorite is a tie between Shrek 2 and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. Shrek 2 isn't as good as the first, but it's still highly entertaining and it introduces my favorite Shrek character; Puss in Boots. Spirit is a ballsy movie for Dreamworks because it is more for older children, teenagers, and adults. The animals don't talk and it's basically the better version of War Horse. It's more like Dances With Wolves than Disney's Home on the Range.
