[This 기사 was originally 게시됨 on the Animated 영화 spot]
I recently realised that I have been missing out on many interesting animated movies. I am a true 디즈니 팬 at 심장 and no 영화 will ever be able to give me the same feelings that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Lady and the Tramp, Hercules, The Little Mermaid and many 더 많이 can, but I have realised that there are many other good animated 영화 out there that are not in relation to 디즈니 at all.
In this 기사 I am looking a DreamWorks traditionally animated movies, which only consists of five films: The Prince of Egypt (1998), The Road to El Dorado (2000), Joseph: King of Dreams (2000), Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron (2002) and Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003). All of these films where released theatrically apart from Joseph: King of Dreams which was a direct-to-video release.
I found The Prince of Egypt
to be a very interesting film, although I have to admit I think that it was hyped quite a lot for being nothing 더 많이 than an OK feature, it is not my favourite movie out of the five discussed in this article. It is not a bad film at all, it has fantastic music, a great initial idea and a few 3-dimentional characters but it just seemed to be nothing 더 많이 than another animated adaptation of a biblical story, but a very good one in comparison to others and I suppose the movie did deserve some of the high critical acclaim that it received. The Road to El Dorado
is a film I would definitely recommend, it is quite diverse from the typical animated movie and is very much driven 의해 its comedy, the plot seems quite rushed as if the writers where trying to think of a way that an antagonist will be created but still a film worth seeing. It includes the heroine of Chel, who is quite a unique animated heroine when compared to the regular cliché even though (like quite a few DreamWorks animated film) the heroine gets little screen time.
I thought that Joseph: King of Dreams
is quite a good film, I actually preferred this story than The Prince of Egypt but I appreciate that all together The Prince of Egypt was a better made movie. The 애니메이션 was good looking and I liked the use of colour and the story was entertaining enough, although I can understand why it was a direct-to-video feature. But all in all, I enjoyed watching this feature and out of the five mentioned films in this 기사 it was definitely one that I enjoyed the most and I think that it was the best adaption of this story that I have seen.
I found Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
to be the most intriguing film out of the five traditionally animated 영화 의해 DreamWorks, I liked how the 말 didn't directly speak (only through a voice over representing Sprite's thoughts) this gave the movie a very naturalistic edge. The visuals where pretty damn breathtaking and the 음악 throughout this movie was pretty good, not a fantastic soundtrack but it suited the mood and helped the story along the way.
I really enjoyed watching Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas
, it was quite simply a really cute film with some rough and ready edges. It is definitely one of my favourite of the five 영화 I have mentioned. The film itself wasn't very successful but don't let that put 당신 off. It has some fairly good characters, an ok plot and pretty good animation. This film's story is a compilation of Arabian Nights and Greek Mythology, being set in Greece rather than an Arabian area, which has brought up alot of discussion. The movie was considered to a commercial disaster and one of the 영화 that represented the end of a chain of traditionaly animated movies.
Unfortunately some of these features where not successful enough to keep DreamWorks producing traditionally-animated 영화 and had to 옮기기 on to the computer-animated craze with 슈렉 (2001) and its sequels (which 의해 the way they are taking WAY too far now) and 상어 Tale (which I actually really like). But to be honest I am bored of computer-animated 영화 at the moment they all seem so similar with quite boring stories, this is why I have been searching through traditionally-animated 영화 produced 의해 different companies. Anyway all in all I enjoyed DreamWorks five animated features and recommend them for all, although some to greater and lesser extent.
