They're back in full-on pop culture garbage mode from the trailers I've seen.

Did they ever really get out of that?

They did with the How to Train Your Dragon films and Rise of the Guardians, but those were few and far between.

I thought I remembered someone here mentioning that they weren't as involved in How to Train Your Dragon.

Even Puss In Boots was a lot less reliant on pop culture gags. And that is a spin off of Shrek, of all things.

But then, Madagascar 3 was apparently a bigger hit than all of them, so that's what we get more of. Even the Penguins film was apparently a disappointment compared to the TV show.

It's sad when something good (in this case, Shrek) cases a bad movement. Seems to happen a lot in animation.

Kung-Fu Panda is also light on pop culture jokes. Then again, you could make a case that the movies are just one big pop culture reference, but it works for their sake.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

I'm seeing Home in a couple of days. I think I'm the only person I know that thinks the film does not look horrendous, so I'm willing to give it a try.

I take that comment back. Home was horrendous.

I've never seen a film with such lacklustre production values from DreamWorks. Nothing was inspired or unique about the film, it felt like fodder.
