Shrek's Finale (Shrek Forever After)

Thursday, May 20, 2010
Yesterday, we got invited (and to our surprise, so was Kris Aquino lol) to the opening of the new 3D Cinema of Eastwood Cyber One Mall in Libis, Quezon City, with the Premier showing of Shrek's fourth and final movie, Shrek Forever After. The 3D Glasses they're using is similar to the Dolby 3D glasses being used in Ayala Malls.

But the Cinema itself is a whole different story, seats are laid out great and one thing you'd find new are the type of seats they have, the whole seat can move and slant up to around 30 degress backward (so that's the reason why the seat seems to be too elevated from the one in front of it) so that you'd still have a great view of the Movie Screen even if you have the seats slanted all the way back. Now on to the juicy movie stuff... (p.s. Their Pop Corn's great too! 55pesos for a tumbler and 85 for a bucket, I recommend the sour cream flavor ;) )

So Whaddup with the Movie?
Well Shrek misses being a big bad and scary ogre, so he decides to make a deal with Rumpelstiltskin (voiced by Walt Dohrn), to make him a bad-ass ogre again even just for a single day. By doing this, Rumpel ends up being the king of Far Far Away land and Shrek gets erased from everyone's memory, now how all of these happened is for you to find out ;) but just the idea of Donkey not knowing who Shrek (as shown in the official trailer) is already a must see, I really can't imagine this movie without Eddie Murphy as Donkey!

The Good:
A great twist has been introduced, packs a ton of Laughs (as always from Donkey). I do recommend watching it in 3D (no need for IMAX, digital 3D will do). Enjoy new characters (as the main Antagonist) and another adversary (a very interesting and funny one at that!) sent to capture Shrek. If you're a fan of Shrek and/or needs a good comedy fix, this movie's highly recommended!

The Bad:
I couldn't think of any bad things about the movie, other than it being too short (an estimate of one and a half hour), it was kinda sad to know that this will be the last time we'll see Shrek in the big screen, but then again, it's already starting to lose its touch, but at least managed to end the series great with part 4. The first two movies were awesome, and even if this 4th installment wasn't able to out-do the first 2 movies, it was a big improvement from Shrek the Third (3rd movie).

Main Cast:
Mike Myers ... Shrek (voice)
Eddie Murphy ... Donkey (voice)
Cameron Diaz ... Princess Fiona (voice)
Antonio Banderas... Puss in Boots (voice)

Overall rating:
Being the finale of the Shrek Series and being a big improvement from Shrek 3, this movie's worth watching and seeing in Digital 3D (no need for IMAX). The whole movie is in 3D.

Shrek 4: Forever After opens in the Philippines today (May 20, 2010)
Special thanks to Eastwood Cinema for the invites!

Thanks for viewing cinephiles!
