My Top 13 Favorite DreamWorks Animation Films

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!

As a guy who’s never watched The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show nor had much previous knowledge about who Mr. Peabody and Sherman were, I wasn’t too interested in this film when I first heard about it. But, when character art started appearing online as well as the trailer, I became intrigued by the film and was anxious to see it. It actually was on my top 5 films I was most looking forward to in 2014! So, did I end up liking this film as much as I had hoped? Short answer: Yes.

“Mr. Peabody & Sherman” Owns 2nd Place In Weekend Box Office!

Dreamworks Animation’s latest film, “Mr. Peabody & Sherman”, has opened in the #2 spot in the US/Canada weekend box office. The film, based on a popular segment of “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show”, grossed a total of $32.5 million domestically.

I haven’t seen the film yet, but am really looking forward to see it because of the animation, the seemingly interesting plot, and the fact that Rob Minkoff (one of the directors of “The Lion King”) directed it.

Have you seen it? What did you think of it?

Well, 2013 is about to come to an end, so you know what that means!

"I think it means that it's time for us to look back at our year and see what progress we have made, learn from our mistakes, make amends for whatever wrongs we have committed, ..."
“I think it means that it’s time for us to look back on this year and see what progress we have made, learn from our mistakes, make amends for whatever wrongs we have committed, …”

No, it means that I’m going on vacation!

"Huh...that was totally not what I was thinking!"
“Huh…that was totally not what I was thinking!”

Yep, I’m gonna be gone for about a week, so I thought that I should leave you all with something before I go. And what better thing to leave you with than a preview of what next year has to offer in animated films!

So sit back and relax while we take a look at the animated full-length theatrical films that shall be released next year complete with synopses (if available), trailers/posters (if available), and American release dates (if available). I hope you all enjoy! Continue reading “Upcoming Animated Films in 2014”
