It’s about time for another Top 13 list! In preparation for the February U.S. release of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, I decided to rewatch all of the DreamWorks Animation films. DreamWorks Animation, to me, is hit-or-miss, so sometimes it was quite a challenge watching these films. But other times, I quite enjoyed watching these films! Below, I have listed my top 13 favorite DreamWorks Animation films. A few points to keep in mind:
1) This is my personal list of which ones I liked best; it’s not necessarily which ones I think are the best made films. Also this is my list as of now; if you ask me again in the future, this list may change due to personal fluctuations.
2) For personal religious reasons, I haven’t seen The Prince of Egypt nor do I choose to. So don’t be surprised when you see it missing from this list! I’m sure it’s a wonderful film, but I choose not to watch it.
3) I also haven’t seen Joseph: King of Dreams both for personal religious reasons as stated above as well as because it’s a direct-to-video film and I don’t want to compare it alongside the theatrical films.
Now that that’s taken care of, here are my top 13! Hope you enjoy!
The nominees for the upcoming 45th Annie Awards ceremony have been announced and you can see the full list of nominees by clicking here. Pixar’s Coco is in the lead with 13 nominations! A few of the interesting categories are as follows:
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Cars 3 Coco Despicable Me 3 The Boss Baby
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE-INDEPENDENT
In This Corner of the World Loving Vincent Napping Princess The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales The Breadwinner
BEST ANIMATED SHORT SUBJECT
Dear Basketball Hedgehog’s Home Negative Space Scavengers Son of Jaguar
BEST VOICE ACTING IN AN ANIMATED FEATURE PRODUCTION
Nick Kroll (Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie) Anthony Gonzalez (Coco) Saara Chaudry (The Breadwinner) Laara Sadiq (The Breadwinner) Zach Galifianakis (The LEGO Batman Movie)
What do you all think of the nominees? I’m really surprised that The LEGO Batman Movie didn’t get a nomination for Best Animated Feature whilst The Boss Baby did! Also, was Zach Galifianakis’ voicework as the Joker really THAT good to warrant a Best Voice Acting nomination? Glad to see The Breadwinner, The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales, and Dear Basketball getting love though!
We have finally gotten a trailer for Dreamworks Animation’s upcoming film, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.
The film honestly doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would be. Then again, 2017 is such a weak year for animation that it doesn’t take much to make me optimistic. I quite enjoy the animation style of this film, but I do feel the story will be quite predictable. I also feel that Kevin Hart is quite mismatched for his character as it just feels odd to hear his voice come out of that character.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie features the voices of Ed Helms, Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, and Nick Kroll. It will hit theaters on June 2, 2017. Do you plan to see it?
As the year comes to a close, it comes time again to prepare ourselves for the animated films being released next year! So read on below to find a list of the theatrical animated films set to be released in 2017! Like usual, I’m only listing the ones that have confirmed US release dates at the moment, hence this list is mostly composed of films from the major animation studios. Enjoy!
