Animated movies are one of the best genre of movies to watch. They guarantee and deliver total fun and entertainment for the entire family. Watching an animated film takes you to a land far away that you've always dreamed off. The vibrant colors and special effects are just a delight to watch. I still have my old favorites like Tom and Jerry, Aladdin, Mickey and Friends, and so on. Those were some wonderful times and you never get tired of watching a good animated magical story. Well, animation has grown over leaps and bounds since those times. We have seen some path-breaking technology and visual effects. We all have been fans of Disney movies, and movies from other companies such as Pixar, Dreamworks, etc. We saw some great films release this year, including the much awaited Shrek 4 "Forever After". Animated movies had good stories and special effects, so it was a double treat for fans.

Best Animated Movies

With every passing year, animated movies have seemed to hit a new record by being commercially and critically successful. 2009 saw some great movies like Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Monsters vs Aliens, which proved to be smashing blockbusters. 2010 is also not far behind. Let's have a look at some good animated films of 2010.

Hoodwinked Too!: Hood vs. Evil
Hoodwinked Too! This is a sequel to the successful Hoodwinked movies that was released in 2005. The story is about Red Riding Hood and the Wolf investigating the disappearance of Hansel and Gretel. A much awaited film featuring the voices of Joan Cusack, Martin Short, Hayden Panettiere and Glenn Close among others. This is going to be a great movie and a must watch for families.

Toy Story 3
The toys are back for the third and possibly the last time (I hope not) in Pixar's final Toy Story franchise. Pixar has maintained a record of long and successful animated movies and this one has also hit the jackpot. The plot gets interesting as Woody, Buzz and the gang are left to fend for themselves after they are left at a local day care center. There have been many reports that this is the last Toy Story film but Pixar has yet to make a statement. So keep your fingers crossed.

Shrek Forever After 3D
The 3D version of the highly successful Shrek installment comes back. Shrek 4 features the voices of Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas. This animation wonder gives us a glimpse of Shrek's life as a married man and who's tricked into spending his life on a land far away from princess Fiona. Shrek 4 Forever After 3D is a must watch.

How to Train Your Dragon
The latest creation from Dreamworks, How to Train Your Dragon is a story of friendship between a teen and a fearsome dragon. The movie is directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois. They have done a magnificent job of making this movie funny and adventurous. Don't miss the high-pack flying sequences.

Despicable Me
According to media reports, this is Steve Carell's last 3D animation film. He got lots of critical acclaim for his voice in Horton Hears a Who! This time the Office star plays an evil super villain who wants to capture the moon. With this evil plot he also finds himself getting attached to a group of orphans. It is an interesting mix of comic and emotions and Despicable Me is sure to make you smile.
