I saw SHReK yesterday and I must say, it was one of the most visually stunning films I have ever seen. The CGI animation was spectacular.
The story was very fun, poking a lot of fun at past Disney movies (Katzenberger, one of the producers was previously a Disney guy), some good humor.
Overall, the most fun I've had at the movies since Gladiator.

I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT! No, actually, I can, I'm just a tad high at the moment - sure it'll wear off soon though.
Shrek pokes fun at Disney? What, exactly? Oh, I LOVE Disney. It brings out the li'l nine year old kid in you...

I went to this movie thinking that it would be okay. I left feeling that I had just seen one of the best movies ever. It was SO much better than I expected! The Disney jabs are hilarious not to mention all the other humor aimed at an adult audience. I'm a big sap, so I found the movie quite touching as well. Go see this!!!

My favorite scene was the one with the bird, I almost fell out of my seat laughing.

One of the funniest movies I've seen...laughed quite hard at the part where Pinnochio says "I'm a real boy!!" even though that doesn't sound the least bit funny when I say it http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/frown.gif

Barbarossa - agree with you completely (unexpected but hilarious - and just when I was beginning to groan and saying "I thought this movie wasn't like that?!").
One of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time...

Its been a while since I posted here. i hope you guys remember me.
getting back to the topic, I thought Shrek was an outstanding movie one of my top all time and possibly the best all summer . besides The Others.
I have to second you on that FF ,and I didn't even see it in the theatre. I downloaded it on my computer the second week it was out. The quality that I got on my 15' monitor was great. So i would like to see what it looks like on a big screen or better yet on dvd playing on a projection HD TV. Same goes for Final Fantasy. all of the movies that I have seen since this summer about 40, I have downloaded while they were still in the theatre, which is good due to the nonexistent amount of money I have. but I will definately be seeing LOTR in the theatre.

On a side note, for those interested, Dreamworks picked up the rights for Terry Pratchett's Bromeliad trilogy (Truckers, Diggers, Wings) and put the team that made Shrek, on the project.
