Shrek
« on: September 25, 2012, 08:36:47 PM »
Discuss the franchise here. The 4 main movies, Puss in Boots, or whatever.

I still like the first 2 films, but have no real desire to see the other 2. I believe that PIB is on Netflix, and since I hear that it's a lot better than the latter 2, I might have to check that out.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

Sir, do you have any Warrants?
I got their first CD, but you can't have it, motherfucker!

It introduced me to Jennifer Saunders. That's all the good I can say.

I like the first two films, but I really enjoyed Puss In Boots. He was the best thing to come out of the Shrek movies, and IMO, his movie is better than any of the Shrek ones.

You should totally watch it.  8)

I enjoyed Shrek. Shrek 2 wasn't as good as 1, but it still had it's moments. Unfortunately, by the time of Shreks 3 and 4, the franchise had become commercialized and over saturated. One good thing about keeping the Shrek franchise going is that Shrek is basically the only money making films that Eddie Murphy and Mike Myers are doing anymore.

Puss in Boots was good, though. I enjoyed that more than both of the last 2 Shrek films combined.

Pretty much in the same boat.

Except that I knew about Absolutely Fabulous a few months before the first film came out (which of course she wasn't in). But she's a comedic genius, no question. As is her comedy partner, Dawn French (or one-time partner).

I did find a few jokes in the first 2 films funny but... characters, story, animation? Nothing impressed me.
Well, I got so burned out on the road
Too many fags, too much blow
And then Mick and I split up and I said,
"Kid, it's time to take a little bit of a hiatus."
So I got myself a gig at the coffee shop
and I love it.

I am a big fan of Shrek. I love to watch it when I get free from my work. Though, its new part has also been introduced, but still all of them are good. I would like to see it in 3D character animations. Hope some day it will also come.

Chris Farley's Shrek has leaked after all these years.

Nice find. I thought it was pretty interesting to hear Chris Farley's voice come out of Shrek after all these years. He would have made a good Shrek.

I'd rather a Puss in Boots sequel.

I knew once Dreamworks was bought by NBC Universal we were getting this. Now we just gotta wait for that Minions Crossover! :^)
