Now I didn’t see 2 movies this weekend, but this review is past due. I didn’t see this film in the theater I used illegal means of watching it – though feeling guilty at first after watching it I was glad I didn’t see it in the theater. The movie was okay but it’s something I could have waited till DVD. When Shrek first came out, I didn’t think it would be as good as anything Pixar could do and I didn’t see it until it came out on DVD. I was wrong. I really enjoyed the first one so when Shrek 2 came out I was excited to see it in the theaters.
Shrek 3 on the other hand, I could say it follows the “Austin Powers” formula. First one is gread, 2nd one is even better, 3rd is nothing more of recycled jokes and scenes from the first two. I was really disappointed by that. You can easily spot the similarities too it wasn’t like they tried to hide them or made them funnier. My favorite character from the Shrek movies has been Puss and I was really bummed out to see how much he became a back-burner character. In the 2nd Shrek he competed for the spotlight with Donkey. In the 3rd he was almost like Donkey’s sidekick.
Bascially, if you have kids who are dying to see Shrek 3, they will probably enjoy it, but if you can wait a few months for it to come out on DVD, I would.
