Before I start this review, I will say that Shrek 2 is not cooperating with me, so if I can't get video for it, I may have to do it from memory, which I have done before. Anyway, Shrek 3 was not quite as bad as I remembered , but it is still the worst of the series. Honestly, they should have stopped at Shrek 2 and maybe done a spinoff of a character or something (which they plan to do). It was sporadically clever and sporadically funny and of course filled with pop culture references , but …

This is the third (and presumably) the final installment to a film that has swept the world and a character that has left the industry green with envy. The film begins when the ill-fated Frog King meets his demise and Shrek and Fiona are forced to take the helm and run the kingdom of Far Far Away. Prince Charming sees an opportunity to seize the thrown which was rightfully his but realizes, he alone, won't be able to overthrow the great green ogre....so he recruits the forgotten characters from …

I naturally went into this film skeptical due to the many negative reviews. Let me tell you that in my own personal opinion the third installment of the Shrek universe was just as enjoyable as the first two. It gives us the old school fairy tale characters and sticks them in yet more unusual positions. The usual damsels in distress are forced to fend for themselves and fight back against the villains. We're also given the delightful treat of seeing a young King Arthur be taken to Far Far Away to …

Though not quite as good as the first two, this is still one of the best animated films to come out in the last couple of years! There are some hilarious scenes, especially when Shrek has a nightmare of being a father to thousands of little Shreks! The dying scene of the king was copied from many prior comedies, but it is still funny nonetheless.    The newly added characters such as Captain Hook bring a nice touch. I hope there will be enough of a demand for more of these films!

I wish Amazon had 1/2 stars. This is a 3.5 in my book.    I hesitated to buy or even rent Shrek 3. I'd read a review when it opened that suggested it fell very short of the other two. But I found a deal I couldn't pass up, and even if it was slightly amusing I thought it might produce a few giggles. If nothing else, the infamous Puss-in-Boots big-eyed, poor kitty stare was worth the price of Shrek 2.     Surprisingly, I found much to enjoy. A twist on the …

When King Harold (John Cleese) falls ill and eventually croaks, Shrek (Mike Myers) takes over the duties of King of Far, Far Away. He quickly realizes that he's just doesn't have what it takes to be a king. After all, he is an ogre. When he learns of another relative in line for the throne, Shrek sets out with Donkey (Eddie Murphy) and Puss In Boots (Antonio Banderas) to find the long lost heir, Arthur (Justin Timberlake). While Shrek is gone, Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) forms an army of evil …
