Shrek 2 (2004) review
As I said before, there are some scenes in Shrek 2 that are just downright hilarious. And they’re not always big things, they’re little references here and there that I just found really funny. Any time they did a movie parody I loved it. Pinocchio and his cross-dressing had me rolling. Any time Donkey sang I couldn’t help but laugh. Puss-in-Boots and his sinister fighting technique of having big eyes. They manage to fit in so many things into a 92 minute film it amazes me. There was one total throwaway shot with Shrek lying in bed with Fiona and looking at a picture she had up on the wall of Sir Justin (a.k.a. Justin Timberlake) that made me cough with laughter. It was just so from out of right field, it had nothing to do with anything, but it was funny.
The ‘problem’ with these kinds of films is that there needs to be a story. I say that’s a problem because that means the movie slows down some to move the plot along. And being a romantic kind of story, it got kind of sad and sappy at times. I mean, it’s not that it was bad, but with a movie that has the ability to be so funny in so many different ways, any scene that wasn’t played for laughs felt out of place. But the story was a strong one. Some animated films just assume that you’ll like the fact that cartoons are talking and don’t bother putting together a decent story line. This story at its basic level was solid. What parent doesn’t want their daughter to marry a Prince Charming over an ogre? And sometimes parents will use different tactics to help move the situation along. Granted, not everyone has a spell-casting fairy godmother in the mix, but this is a fairy tale after all.Once again the animation was top notch. There was one shot in particular that involved the camera panning down a tree and landing on Shrek and Donkey as they walked through the forest that was amazing. Not because it did anything special, but that because the shot of the tree was so amazing it looked like it was an honest to god real tree. The animation for the movie otherwise didn’t look too different from the first one, although I did seem to notice they did a lot more with lights and shadows, but it’s still incredible how far computer animation has come over the last few years. When movies try not to do too much with the animation it can look tremendous.
