    Default Favourite and Least Favourite Dreamworks movie

    Got some inspiration from the Pixar thread.

    Favs have got to be Prince of Eygpt, Spirit, The Road to El Dorado, Chicken Run, Megamind, and Ku Fu Panda 2.


    Dislike The Boss Baby, Shark Tale, Flushed Away, Trolls, Turbo, Monsters Vs Aliens and the Madagascar movies. I think I dislike the Madagascar movies the most because they are just so. damn. annoying.

    I used to like Antz, Sinbad, and Over the Hedge when I was younger, but today I feel like they are pretty eh and just don't hold up. Same with the Shrek movies. I just find the original Shrek pretty pathetic because it's just basically Jeffery Katzenberg's " smurf you Disney, you didn't make me pwesident wwwahhh! " movie. I thought that the first How to Train Your Dragon movie was okay, but found the second one pretty boring. Home could have been a top favorite if it was more about Tip and not about the annoying purple alien and his strange speech pattern.

    Bee Movie is in my " so bad, it's "good " " category.


    You ??

    Specifically animated films? As Dreamworks has released some trash over the years (Norbit being the worst offender).

    Best:

    the how to train your dragon movies, Megamind (at a stretch)

    worst:

    this has made me realise there's a lot of animated Dreamworks films I don't care about: The Bee Movie, Cars, the Croods, The Kung Fu Panda films, the boss baby etc etc

    I don't mind the Shrek films. #2 is pretty good.


    listen to the silence, let it ring on

    Dreamworks movie can be effectively split into two groups:

    - Pretty good movies
    - Actual garbage

    I will need to have a think about what I'd say is my fave. Least fave is also going to be tricky. I don't think I've even seen Turbo, so my opinion isn't well rounded yet!

    I forgot Road to El Dorodo is Dreamworks. That's one of my favorite movies. Shrek 2 is great. The "I Need a Hero" scene is awesome.

    I hated Shark Tale.

    Looking over the list of films they've done... Road to El Dorado and Shrek 2 are the only ones I really love. Like if they were on, I'd probably watch it whereas the rest of their films I either don't care for or have to be talked into it.

    Iím the only person on the Internet who really enjoyed Shrek the Third. Like itís easily my favorite of the series. Donít even @ me. 2 is great too. People who glorify the first one over it are not deserving of trust.

    Shark Tale almost gave me brain cancer, on the other hand.

    Megamind is the best by a distance (not dissing the others, it's just that Megamind is superb and damned near perfection) and the worst is idk maybe something I haven't seen like Trolls.

    How to Train Your Dragon... definitely. Shrek wouldn't be too far behind.

    I agree with Fynn that Shark Tale is easily bottom of the pile.

    Favourites, in no particular order: HTTYD 2, Shrek, Megamind, Sinbad. Shrek and Sinbad mostly for nostalgia reasons.
    Least favourite: Over the Hedge
