Shrek Forever After Makes Me Roar

Exploring: Shrek Forever After

Shrek Forever After made me roar with delight and giving me a chance to fall in love with the movies all over again.  This is one of the best in the series since the first.  It has been a while since I have watched a movie leaving the theater feeling great.

DreamWorks shows off their amazing animation skill.  With moments like the muscles in Shrek's hand to the nose flair when he gets literally huffing mad.  In this movie there is a noticeable leap forward in animation detail.

Shrek Forever After is a perfect movie:  A perfect date movie, A perfect family movie, even a perfect fun movie.  They strike an amazing balance between romance, drama, action and jokes.

Even the end credits are a perfect recap of the previous 3 movies!

Brilliant Funny Moments

  • "Do the roar"
  • Donkey's waffel fairy and postulating on his mutant babies.
  • A pampered Puss In Boots.
  • Roar Spit Take
  • I didn't know we could do that
  • I want and angry hat!

Touching Romantic Moments

  • Good Morning
  • "If I'm your true love then where were you when I needed you?"
  • "The Best part of the day is he got to fall in love all over again"
  • "It was you who rescued me."

Expectations

I have loved all of the Shrek movies and expect to really enjoy this as well.  I have some concerns over Rumpelstiltskin looking like a troll on the poster, what is up with that?  They address that in the movie it's a hilarious moment.

Story:

After all of his adventures, Shrek has become a domesticated family ogre. Instead of scaring villagers away as he used to, Shrek agrees to autograph pitchforks. Longing for the days when he felt like a “real ogre”, Shrek is tricked into signing a pact with the smooth-talking deal maker, Rumpelstiltskin.  After signing the contract, Shrek discovers he has been tricked, and the day Rumpelstiltskin took out of Shrek’s life was the day that he was born-meaning that he never existed.  Now, stuck in a twisted alternate version of Far Far Away where he has to gather the gang and fix everything.

Merlin, Ogers and Disappearing Food

Have you ever been in a social situation where eating the contents of your plate is required but not desired?  If you are planning on throwing the food into the water heed my warning.

While watching Merlin episode 205 Beauty and the Beast: Part One Lady Catrina being an ogre finds human food revolting.  She has to eat to keep up pretenses with the king.  While picnicking she tosses the food from her plate into the river to give the appearance of having eaten the food.  Warning this will not always work.

As a small ogre or as some might mistake a child I would refuse to eat vegetables, they were repulsive.  My parents decided to imprison me at the dinner table until the vegetables were eaten.  I sat near the fish tank.  Fish eat plants so I figured they would eat vegetables too.

When my parents weren't looking I would secret some of the vegetables into the tank.  After a while my plate was cleared and I retreated into my cave (basement).  Several hours later I heard the dreaded howl from my mother.  She found the vegetables floating at the top of the tank.  The fish had failed me and I was busted.  She loves telling this tale.

That is my warning.  If you wish to try and clear your plate don't presume throwing it into a body of water will remove the evidence.

DVD Releases: March 31st, 2009

Cthulhu-movie Out this week we have eight DVD’s to feature: Cthulhu, The Real Ghostbusters, Vol 1Dragonquest, Vampire Secrets, National Geographic: Journey to the Edge of the Universe, Ogre, and two Goosebumps: The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight, Return of the Mummy

  • Cthulhu:  I can’t wait to watch this movie.  I’m a huge fan of H.P. Lovecraft and wanted to watch this independent movie when it was in the theaters but due to it’s limited release I was unable to watch it.  For more read here.
  • The Real Ghostbusters, Vol 1: OMG we were just talking about this show on the Project: Shadow Informant.  I loved this as a kid.  I’m so excited to see it out.
  • Dragonquest: I have not seen this one but it does have dragons in it for our fantasy fans.  If you have seen this let me know in the comments if I should rent it.
  • Vampire Secrets: A History Channel exploration into Hollywood’s vampires including a look at the origin of several common superstitions and reveals the connection between the ancient vampire myths of Europe, Greece and China.  I haven’t seen this show but I like most of the History channel’s exploration specials.
  • National Geographic: Journey to the Edge of the Universe: I love these shows the imagery of stellar objects are always breathtaking.  Go on a voyage through the cosmos, beginning on Earth and traveling outward through the solar system and the Milky Way, past distant galaxies and to the very limits of the universe. Images from the Hubble telescope and innovative computer graphics make possible the single, long traveling shot that comprises this journey, and unobtrusive narration explains the sights along the way.
  • Ogre: Yet another bad monster flick from the Sci-Fi channel.  Not having watched this one yet I wonder if it’s just bad or if it passes into the realms of a craptastic B movie.  If you have watched this let me know in the comments.
  • the-real-ghostbusters For the Parents: two Goosebumps movies out this week for the young viewers.
    • Goosebumps: The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight: This collection of spooky tales:  In the title story, Jodie and Mark witness strange goings-on at their grandparents' farm. In "Don't Go to Sleep," Matt wakes up to find a family that he almost doesn't recognize. And in "Calling All Creeps," Ricky is paying the price for posting a mean girl's phone number in a personal ad.
    • Goosebumps: Return of the Mummy: A trio of spine-chilling adventures:  Gabe encounters an unhappily disturbed mummy while visiting his archaeologist uncle in Egypt in "Return of the Mummy." Next, Jeff gets a surprise when he receives a sarcophagus containing a 4,000-year-old mummy from his father. Finally, Eddie and Hat's plan to scare a boastful pal doesn't turn out the way they plan.
