40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

BingMag.com 40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

DreamWorks has produced countless memorable animations over the past two decades and is considered a serious competitor to Disney and Pixar. In this article, we have ranked the company's 40 animations from the worst to the best. Oscar

  • 10 different animations you may have never seen
  • When Jeffrey Katzenberg was fired from Disney, he joined two movie giants (David Geffen and Steven Spielberg); He founded the big company DreamWorks. DreamWorks was the first full-fledged new filmmaking studio to be built since United Artist. One of the key parts of DreamWorks was its animation. Katzenberg oversaw this directly, and his goal was to compete with Disney and his unbridled monopoly on the world of animation. Faced with strange events and failures. Recently, Universal Studios (one of DreamWorks' three major distribution studios) bought the entire DreamWorks and acquired it.

    The future of DreamWorks and its animations now looks bright and uncertain And worrying. On the one hand, original films and popular sequels are on the way, and on the other hand, because they have become part of other large studios, they may not have the freedom to act before. There is an undeniable animation. DreamWorks animations have their own style and model that when we see them, we immediately understand that they are their product, just as Pixar and Disney productions have their own characteristics and we recognize it immediately.

    40. Joseph: King of Dreams

    BingMag.com 40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

    • Product: 2000
    • Director: Robert Ramirez, Rob Ladoka
    • Voice actors: Ben Affleck, Mark Hamill, Richard Hurd, Maureen McGovern
    • IMDb to Movie Score: 6.5 out of 10
    • Raton Tomitose Score: 63%

    This one was a really bad movie. DreamWorks' intention in making this animation was to produce a low-cost work to send it directly to the home theater market without release, and they relied on the popularity of the Egyptian prince and thought that it would also gain popularity. Unfortunately, the popularity of the Prince of Egypt did not last long, and when we reached Yusuf: King of Dreams, we came across a small work that had neither good composition quality nor pleasant melodies. He had to try new things and accept any unreasonable and strange offer. Now here is the voice actor of Yusuf's role, and he was really badly chosen, and the characterization of Yusuf's character did not help him either. In the musical parts of the film and the places Joseph is supposed to sing, an Australian singer named David Campbell replaces Affleck, whose voice bears no resemblance to him.

    The production of this film was like an endless nightmare. After Yusuf: The King of Dreams was shown to some people on a trial basis, the feedback was really bad and they had to work on the quality of the animation again and make fundamental changes. All this work and effort and energy that they spent on the film again did not bring much result and the animation is still awkward and unbearable. It is depicted that its backgrounds are similar to Van Gogh's paintings (but in general it is clear that from the beginning they did not want to put much energy on it. A video that does not meet the standards of a proper studio production or treatment.

    39. Turbo

    BingMag.com 40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

    • Product: 2013
    • Director: David Soren
    • Voices: Ryan Reynolds, Michael Pina, Snoop Dogg, Paul Giamatti
    • IMDb movie rating: 6.4 out of 10
    • Raton Tomitoz rating: 58%

    The animation incorporates so many elements of DreamWorks as if it were a satire of their own work. Turbo tells the story of a snail (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) who dreams of becoming a racing car driver and, thanks to a magical accident, imagines speeding and enters racing.

    Turbo is an example of a product. Which DreamWorks makes at its worst. The story is complicated for no particular reason and does not pay well, the animation is not taken seriously and it is made by hand and it is a film that we can easily forget. It has the idea of filling the mouth, but it does not consume much intelligence and taste, and it refers and refers to the popular events of the day in an extreme way.

    A spin-off of it had been given the green light even before the movie was released and its bad sales and box office were broken. But after the screening and negative feedback of all these programs, it was questioned.

    Of course, Turbo, with all its problems and weaknesses, shows us spectacular images of the San Fernando Valley that are not without grace.

    38. Shrek 4D D

    BingMag.com 40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

    • Product: 2003
    • Director: Simon J. Smith
    • Voices: Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, John Lisgo
    • IMDb Score: 6.3 Out of 10
    • Raton Tomitoz Score: -

    If you think this one is short animation it should not be on this list , So you probably do not know what a commotion DreamWorks made when it aired. In addition to showing the film at Universal Studios' amusement parks in Hollywood, Orlando, Singapore, and Japan, Warner Bros. also purchased the rights to the film and screened it in its movie theaters in Germany and Australia. The film was also televised, screened at home, and screened in the UK as a preview of DreamWorks 3D films. Honestly, it would have been weird if it hadn't been on this list. Sprinkling water on the audience was summed up) is full of pop-up ideas to surprise the audience. The film also features DreamWorks' signatures and countless references to famous works. For example, somewhere in the story of the famous donkey, Shrek says when they pass a cemetery, "I see the dead", which is a reference to the famous dialogue of the movie "Sixth Sense". Six-dimensional shrek is important in one direction. Because Shrek was built before the next sequels, and probably laid the foundation for the path that DreamWorks and Katzenberg chose to follow; That is, overuse of 3D technology and amusement park amusement models like this four-dimensional company. DreamWorks went so far in these two cases that he shouted at everyone and it was no longer attractive for anyone to go to their amusement park to have a so-called new experience. The unstoppable course of their three-dimensional cinematic productions soon lost its character and was no longer very attractive to the people.

    37. Shark Tale

    BingMag.com 40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

    • Product: 2004 >
    • Director: Bibo Bergeron, Wiki Jenson, Rob Letterman
    • Voices: Will Smith, Robert De Niro, Renny Zellweger, Angelina Jolie, Martin Scorsese
    • IMDb to Movie Score: 6 out of 10
    • Raton Tomitosis Score: 36%

    They made the shark story with a lot of bad, raw and unthinking ideas. Instead of drawing the cartoon characters correctly and giving them a nice look, they decided to make a cartoon version of their voice actors and put it on the fish's head. For example, the protagonist of the story, voiced by Will Smith, has exaggerated lips and corners resembling him. Or the fish balloon, voiced by Martin Scorsese, with thick eyebrows and a dot on the face of the story shark with the voice of Robert De Niro, like De Niro's dot. Most of the film's commercials maneuvered around the same thing. It is equally memorable and does not have a lasting effect on the viewer. The story is about a gambling addict (Will Smith) who accidentally kills a shark and then, along with another shark that is supposed to be scary, tries to make a heroic image of himself and become famous in the underwater world.

    The story of the animated shark was really bad (just think about it, it was released a year later in search of Nemo), which did not make you feel good when you saw it. This caricature of the characters made Angelina Jolie and Renee Zellweger look like mutant and scary creatures and we could not relate to her story and characters.

    Despite all this, the film was a success (even an Oscar nominee). It was also the best animated feature), but it was one of the few DreamWorks works for which Katzenberg did not pack a bag and did not pull out a few sequels and spin-offs and TV series. He later explained that such parody films, which overtake other genres, were not very popular at the box office worldwide, which seemed to be an excuse for the low quality of their work.

    36. The Boss Baby

    BingMag.com 40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

    • Product: 2017 strong
    • Director: Tom McGrath
    • Voices: Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Cudrow
    • IMDb movie rating: 6.3 out of 10
    • Raton Tomitoz rating: 53%

    Baldwin probably played the Boss character similar to what he said about Katzenberg. A greedy and self-satisfied child in a suit who only thinks of protecting his own interests. The boss kid's nothing fancy, and his story is somewhat silly, which is upsetting because his screenplay was written by the regular writer of Saturday Night Live and Austin Powers's Michael McCullers.

    Baldwin did nothing special, bringing only the same character who played Donald Trump's satire here and playing it with a few tweaks. But they originally made the boss kid based on an illustrated book published in 2010. Visually, the boss's animation was supposed to be a model of the 50s animations, but everything is too messy and no logical connection can be found between the visual form and the idea and the story.

    Of course, the boss's animation He was successful at the box office and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. In 2021, a sequel was made to him, and Alec Baldwin resumed voice acting, but this time he no longer had to work with Katzenberg.

    35. Bee Movie

    BingMag.com 40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

    • Product: 2007 >
    • Director: Steve Hickner, Simon J. Smith
    • Voices: Jerry Seinfeld, Renny Zellweger, Ray Liotta
    • IMDb movie rating: 6.1 out of 10/
    • Raton Tomitosis Score: 49%

    Undoubtedly, Bee Movie is the strangest animation ever produced by DreamWorks. Writer/producer/voice actor Jerry Seinfeld said in interviews that the idea of making the film was just a verbal joke with the term B-Movie, and that Katzenberg did not think he would take it seriously and actually make his animation. But it was taken seriously and they finally made the film.

    The Bee Movie's kind of follows in the footsteps of an ant movie called Zee, we see a bee named Barry who dreams of getting out of the hive to be like all bees. Do not be a worker and do not have to produce honey for the rest of your life. From here, things get trickier, and this is where the true magic begins! Berry meets a human woman with the voice of Renee Zellweger and falls in love with her. The story then changes direction again and becomes a very long legal drama in which Barry files a lawsuit to sue humans for forcing bees to work.

    Seinfeld and several of his former colleagues Brought to this animation. Including Andy Robin and Mike Sendon, who helped write the scripts for his sitcoms, and Michael Richards and Patrick Warburton, who co-wrote the screenplays. Of course, their presence did not have much effect.

    Watching the movie Bee is not a very pleasant experience, especially parts of it that take place in the human world (note that this movie was released the same year that "Ratatouille" was released on Screens are gone) The film's jokes often go unanswered and are less likely to make the audience laugh. The romance between the bee and the human and the unlucky man who lost his love for an insect) and this led Jerry Seinfeld to hope that maybe they could make a sequel for him. But fortunately, the studios have learned their lesson and know that these jokes and the attention paid to the film have the aspect of satire and ridicule.

    34. Abominable

    BingMag.com 40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

    • Product: 2019
    • Director: Jill Calton
    • Voices: Chloe Bennett, Albert Tsai, Tenzing Norgay, Eddie Isard
    • IMDb to Movie Score: 7 out of 10
    • Raton Tomitosis Score: 82%

    Despicable Hard Production And it was exhausting and had so many problems along the way that it was made and released like a miracle. The writer and director fired Jill Calton from the project, changed the way she worked, and then reinstated Jill Calton, this time working with one of her replacement filmmakers.

    The studio of Oriental DreamWorks, a branch of DreamWorks in China where most of the film's animation was performed, was disbanded and a studio called Pearl Studios was established in its place. Now DreamWorks had to work with an alien studio, and because the film was a joint production with China, they had no choice but to comply with their demands.

    Combine (a story that is heavily influenced by Pixar's "Up" animation) and you come across a product that is not very original and can only be seen because of its really beautiful scenery. Of course, the ending of the film was also heartwarming and lovable.

    33. Home

    BingMag.com 40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

    • Product: 2015
    • Director: Tim Johnson
    • Voices: Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez
    • IMDb to Movie Score: 6.6 out of 10
    • Raton Tomitoz Score: 52%

    Less like a movie like Home It created anticipation and excitement and later failed at the box office. The animation was released at a time when DreamWorks was financially and commercially uncertain (the release time was changed to 90 minutes with the Penguins of Madagascar, which was no different).

    Extensive publicity for the film They had seen and considered various programs to introduce it. For example, they made plans for Barack Obama to come to their company and people could take pictures with him. Or Rihanna, who was the main voice actor of the film, released a film-related album that had a limited number of songs and only three of them could be heard in the film.

    He speaks from every door. The story is about a species of alien and space creatures that have moved the entire population of the planet to another place. Jim Parsons plays one of these space creatures, and Rihanna plays a girl who accompanies him to find her family. Both actors have acted as well as they could, but the film itself is too noisy and incoherent and can not achieve the goal it wants.

    The message they wanted behind the scenes to the viewer and the audience It is a clich to pass on and we have seen better examples of it many times. If DreamWorks remained faithful to the source of the film adaptation (Adam Rex's visual novel) and understood it emotionally, the house would probably have a lasting effect and we would have loved it more. But they preferred to rely on the humor of the existing space game of the film and not have anything to do with the deeper dimensions of the book.

    32. Mr. Peabody & Sherman

    BingMag.com 40 DreamWorks animations from worst to best

    • Product : 2014
    • Director: Rob Minkoff
    • Voice actors: Ty Borrell, Max Charles, Ariel Winter, Leslie Man >
    • IMDb movie rating: 6.8 out of 10
    • Raton Tomitoz rating: 81%

    In 2012, DreamWorks bought Classic Media. An entertainment company that owned titles such as "Casper the Friendly Ghost" and made many movies and series. Mr. Peybadi and Sherman were based on one of the episodes of a classic media animated series, and it is not clear why DreamWorks executives thought a feature-length animated film based on a short episode of an animated series would do well, but it is likely that its story is about travel. At the time, they were welcomed.

    The Lion King director Rob Minkoff, after a long absence from the animation world, came to make this film to experience working with DreamWorks. They wanted to make a 3D animation and at the same time pay homage to the source of the film adaptation, which was a 2D animation. The result was not very pleasant.

    After a lot of publicity and news about the return of director Shir Shah to the world of animation, the film failed even more.
