Alec and I saw Shrek 3 today at Liverpool, where they have recently started to have allocated seats. Usually I would ignore the allocation and sit wherever I pleased, but the cinema was looking like it was going to fill, so I obliged. I need to say right now that I am not a fan of allocated movie seats.
Anyway, on to the movie. I love the Shrek films, and number three didn’t disappoint me. It had the same fun characters from the previous films, with some added bonuses – all of the famous princesses were in attendance as seen in the pic. Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel and Beauty.
I love the mashing together of multiple fairytales and legends, such as the new characters from the King Arther legend, as well as the way they turned typical fairytales upside down. For example, the princesses save themselves instead of waiting to be saved. Girl power, fairytale-style.
Cutest new characters: The baby dragon x donkeys (disturbing but so cute I want one).
Funniest moment: The three little pigs doing sausage rolls.
