I think El Dorado was the last "good" Dreamworks movie that was made before they went into "okay" territory with all their movies, (though Sinbad and Stallion are at least better in plot than most of their 3D movies) then it got to Kung Fu Panda and went into "good" again, went back to mediocre with Monsters vs. Aliens, and this year both movies got them into "great."
I just hope it keeps up, they might even step up to Pixar's level of popularity which would be awesome because rival competition would produce great movies from both sides.
gets the same rating from me, actually. gorgeously animated with a truly powerful musical score and a fantastic take on a traditional bible story. I think that's part of the reason I rate Road to El Dorado
lower, because when I think of Dreamworks' 2D animation, I think Prince of Egypt
I don't think Dreamworks will ever be the animation powerhouse Pixar is, but I do think they give Pixar a healthy dose of competition, which is always a good thing.

Never seen the Sean Connery one. Sounds like I'll have to hunt it down for a look though.
