I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
This movie was so-so. It had it's moments, but wasn't the greatest.
Yo, there's no way for me to review this film without saying, take your *insert ethnicity + "ass" here* to see this film,like now. You have to see it in order to know what you're really messing with.
The movie's neither hopeful in contrived ways, nor hopeless in different contrived ways. Somehow it manages to be wonderful
The best thing to come from these movies is the memes, and that's not saying much. The animation in this thing is terrible, and the plot is boring. The characters are dumb. Some scenes are funny, but not enough to make this thing worth watching.
You have to have a very high IQ to understand Shrek. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of swamp physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Shrek's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterization- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature,for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depth of these jokes, to realize that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Shrek truly are idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance the humor in Shrek's godlike catchphrase "What are you doing in my swamp", which itself is a reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Andrew Adamson's genius unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools how I pity them.
Shrek 2 (2004)Plot In A Paragraph: Princess Fiona's parents invite her and Shrek to dinner to celebrate her marriage. If only they knew the newlyweds were both ogres.I don't think this one is quite as brilliant as the first one, but it's still a seriously fun time. Once again Murphy steals the movie, although he has some serious competitor in Antonio Banderas' Puss In Boots. If anyone asked me if I was a fan of Banderas, I'd reply "I don't mind him" but a lot of the time I enjoy his performances!! I liked the Desperado and Spy Kids movies, he also stole Assassins from Sly Stallone and was one of the plus points of Expendables 3. It's no surprise he would retreat to the character of Donkey every couple of years, as in an interview Murphy joked that the character Donkey, was so popular that had he died that year, newspapers would have probably used a picture of Donkey instead of Eddie Murphy.Murphy joins Tom Cruise as the only actors to have two highest grossing movies of the year (From the look backs I have done). Shrek 2 was the highest grossing movie of 2004. Grossing a whopping $441 million at the domestic box office, comfortably beating out Spiderman 2 and Passion Of The Christ.
Shrek Boy 5
Let me start this off by saying, shrek 2 has the greatest ending in film history. I have never been more hyped in my life, then I was when I was in that theater and fairy godmother started singing I need a hero. That song was not only a perfect fit for the movie, but a perfect song to describe what I needed at the time. At that time I was a seven year old with cancer worse than Deadpool's, but unlike DeadPool I didn't have treatment that turned me into a superhero. Instead, I had Shrek, I can honestly say Shrek saved my life, soon after seeing the movie my cancer got oggred and was cured. Shrek 2 is so good I recently failed a chemistry test because all I could think about was the sacrifice of the giant gingerbread man, who was killed by the Knights when they poured the hot milk on him. Why did he do this? For Shrek. He died for Shrek, so that Shrek could find Fiona and reunite with her. While Jesus died for our sins, the giant gingerbread man died for Shrek, which in my opinion is an even more important and noble action. Shrek 2 also has the greatest bonus feature in the history of DVD bonus features, with the feature Far Far away idol. This feature is literal perfection, even includes a guest cameo in that of Simon Cowell. The film also starts off with an amazing gag that most of you probably missed. When Prince Charming goes to the castle expecting to find Fiona and comes to find that the hungry wolf is there instead, if you are looking closely you can see that the wolf is reading pork illustrate, that has a pig in swimsuit, similar to that of sports illustrated swimsuit edition. Knowing all of this, we can only imagine what the wolf was planning on doing if Prince Charming didn't interrupt ;). The only problem with the film is that there was no running of Jew, which was featured in Borat which came out 2 years later, also it would have made perfect sense for the running of the Jew, as Shrek is often making fun of Disney princesses, and since Walt himself was not a fan of Jews, why not throw it in there. If there ever is a Shrek 5 hopefully they throw that in there. In conclusion Shrek 2, is the greatest comedy of all time, and by far the greatest Shrek Film. P.S There will be no Shrek the third review, as that film is more disappointing than the Star Wars prequels, and it makes my cancer come back every time I talk about it, and it should really suck Donkey's right nut. P.S.S That Punk boy from the Shrek is love, Shrek is life video, can go off himself. The events described in the video are completely false and was all CGI, nothing was real. It's bullcrap, that the video has tarnished our hero legacy's because some punk kid can use cgi for a video. If the kid from that video is reading this, I hope fairy godmother comes to your house singing I need a hero, as the giant gingerbread man walks down your street destroying your neighborhood, and than eats you when he finally finds your punk ass.
