Shrek (Anniversary Edition): Blu-ray Review












The Movie:

Relive every moment of Shrek’s (Mike Myers) daring quest to rescue feisty Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz), with the help of his lovable loudmouthed Donkey (Eddie Murphy), and win back the deed to his beloved swamp from scheming Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow).

I don’t think that I’ve met anyone that hasn’t seen Shrek or any of the sequels so this may be full of stuff that you’ve heard before. As everybody might know Shrek was the film that made people take notice of Dreamworks much like Toy Story did for Pixar. It had some of the best, well thought out jokes that appealed to both kids and adults. There wasn’t a single moment that went by while my family and I watched the film that we weren’t cracking up with laughter during the numerous times that we’ve seen it. Myers, Diaz, Murphy and Lithgow all lend their voices to characters that are now considered classics in animation. Although they may not have been in the same room together while recording lines it certainly feels like they were and their chemistry is flawless. So if you have never seen Shrek before NOW is the time to go out and pick it up and enjoy it. I can guarantee that it’ll be a “go to” movie when you just want to laugh. 9/10

Special Features:

Shrek, Rattle & Roll – The feature contains a few music videos including a performance from Shrek The Musical.

Deleted Scenes – There are 3 storyboarded scenes that didn’t make it into the film. It’s unfortunate because they seemed really funny.

Shrek’s Interactive Journey – A cool looking feature that will allow you to click around a map and view various concept art.

The Animators’ Corner – This is basically like a Picture In Picture feature that plays alongside the movie while animators tell stories about the process.

Secrets of Shrek – An inside look at some of the development process of the film as well as some production secrets.
