Shrek Forever After coming to DVD and Blu-Ray
‘Shrek Forever After’ was the 4th and (we are told, but these things are never final are they?) final sequel in the ‘Shrek’ movie series. A Dreamworks CGI animated movie, it was originally released in theatres here in the US on May 21st 2010 and is available soon on DVD and Blu-Ray. (Shrek Forever After DVD is available at Tesco.)
I admit I haven’t seen a Shrek movie since the second one. Both ‘Shrek’ and ‘Shrek 2’ were great movies, I just didn’t feel the need to get to theatres when ‘3’ and ‘4’ came out. So many other movies are in my ‘rent’ or ‘buy’ queue, so this is a series that has fallen by my radar. It is certainly the kind of movie I would have liked to have seen in the theatre and I honestly don’t know how I missed it, especially with kids. ‘Shrek Forever After’ was released in 3-D, which is of course all the rage right now and a bandwagon I still can’t get myself to jump on, but if any films are perfectly suited for the 3-D treatment it is any CGI animated film as they are created in a virtual 3-D space to begin with.
Me having not seen Shrek 3 or 4 isn’t to say they aren’t great movies. I’m sure the fourth installment: ‘Shrek Forever After’ is as fun and funny as the first couple flicks. With Eddie Murphy as Donkey, Mike Myers as ‘Shrek,’ Antonio Banderas as ‘Puss In Boots,’ and Cameron Diaz as ‘Princess Fiona,’ ‘Shrek Forever After’ finds our ugly Ogre hero going through a sort of mid-life crisis, which leads to Shrek and the rest of his fairyland pals romping along “a moving journey of suspense and big laughs as an unexpected encounter with the mischievous Rumpelstiltskin turns Shrek’s world upside down.”
Sounds like a good time for everyone, doesn't it? Except maybe Rumplestiltskin. You can be sure he gets his in the end!
