    Right now, Kung Fu Panda has a lot of potential. So that's my favorite.
    Never liked Shrek that much, except for the first one.
    Madagascar and Megamind annoyed me.
    Despicable Me was good.
    Haven't seen How To Train Your Dragon yet.

    ^ Despicable Me isn't even from Dreamworks.

    Anyway, to answer the question, mine are...

    Huh, I barely watch Dreamworks animation. The only films I've seen from them are Shrek, Shrek 2, Shark Tale and Madagascar. and Shrek and Shrek 2 are the only ones I like.

    Well than nevermind about Despicable Me. I guess Dreamworks has even less credibility from me now. :/

    Kung Fu panda is the only TRULY good one, Shrek is only amusing at most [it has that vibe of "Oh look! We're badass because we make fun of Disney animated classics! We're so hardcore!"].

    Megamind was great, shame it won't be a franchise, I would to watch a sequel for that movie [or a spinoff TV-series].

    My favorite of all the dreamworks is How to train your dragon. Follwed my Megamind and the Road to EL Dorado and Spirit. The others I do like but They just don't hold as much of a place in my love of movie line like these to.

    Haven't seen How to Train Your Dragon yet, but have heard nothing but good things about it.

    So from the few that I've seen, only Kung Fu Panda sticks out as a really great series, while the others range from mediocre to downright terrible.

    Shrek is a good franchise, Megamind just looks stupid IMO, Kung Fu Panda is fantastic, and Madagascar is cringeworthy, being only moderately funny.

    The Prince of Egypt and The Road to El Dorado are two excellent movies, easily matching the best of Disney. They also had far more memorable songs.

    How To Train Your Dragon looks like it will be a great franchise.

    Without a doubt, it is How to Train Your Dragon.

    It's main character is endearing, the different Dragon designs are pretty creative, and although it is clear most effort was made on Toothless (for obvious reasons), they all have unique characteristics.

    John Powell's score is one of the factors that lifts HTTYD above the Dreamworks rank and file: the track in particular is called 'Forbidden Friendship' and is peice that scores arguably one of the best instances of 'show, don't tell' in film that I've seen. Hiccup and Toothless bond in an astonishingly believable and tender manner over the course of this 5 minute piece: elevating the movie from cutesy adventure, to a solid action adventure movie with a lot of heart.

    Truely Dreamwork's finest effort.

    Shrek was good till the 3rd one, Kung Fu Panda is epic, Madgascar is only great if it's about the penguins and lemurs hence why the cartoon is better.

    How To Train Your Dragon. In my opinion, the first movie alone was better than any pixar movie
