When the first Shrek came out it was a brilliant anti-fairy tale fairy tale. Openly lampooning Disney movies and theme parks, Shrek was a fresh take on the animated fairy tale where the main characters didn't live happily ever after as picture perfect prince and princess, but as ogres, typically the scourge of any fairy tale. Since then two other Shrek movies have come out, and rather than embracing the counter culture of the first film, the franchise bought into it's own hype and into pop culture and lost the spirit of the original. While not bad films, they were unnecessary and even sapped some of the brilliance of the original. Now with the finale of Shrek in theaters, how does it stand up?
More-so than it's predecessors Shrek Forever After tries to come back home to more of the feeling of the first film. Even the plot of the film of Shrek's desire to go back to being a lone ogre on the outskirts of society seems to echo what the filmmakers were desiring to accomplish in picking a premise that allowed them to nearly replicate some of the situations of the first movie.Read more ›
In this film, Shrek (voiced by Mike Myers) finds that he's dissatisfied with his new life as a domestic ogre. As a husband and father, he has absolutely no free time. Villagers no longer fear him. He can't take a mud bath without being invaded by swamp tourists. Knowing he's desperate for a change, the disgruntled Rumpelstiltskin (voiced by Walt Dohrn) offers Shrek a chance live one day as his old ogre self. The catch, as I understand it, is that one day out of his past will be erased from time - give a day to get a day, according to Rumpelstiltskin. Shrek agrees and signs a contract, although he fails to specify precisely which day he'll let Rumpelstiltskin have. Bad move; he's transported to an alternate Far Far Away that's ruled by Rumpelstiltskin and has fallen into ruin.
There are other changes. At Rumpelstiltskin's bidding, ogres are hunted by wicked witches and forced into slavery.Read more ›
I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this movie. The creators of the film made some very smart decisions with this film and it made for a very fun and enjoyable watch. I think that this actually might be my favorite Shrek film.
In this film, Shrek is feeling overwhelmed by the monotonous duties and demands of fatherhood and celebrity-hood. The conniving Rumpelstiltskin offers Shrek the chance to relive the past and, thinking it a harmless deal, Shrek signs a contract and is flung into an alternate reality where he is once again a feared and horrible ogre.
As the Shrek film series has progressed, each film has become more crude and involved more pointless humor than it's predecessor. So, naturally, one would think that this film would be the most crude and most adult of the franchise. But it's not. The filmmakers decided to step away from the crude humor and focus their efforts on the story and the character development. The story plays off the idea of "You don't know what you have until it's gone" and we are treated to a very deep and very endearing story. We get to see layers of the characters that we never knew existed and we are actually touched by how charming and sentimental Shrek can actually be. This is very much a love story.Read more ›
