Working, please wait...
While at MAGFest, the Cinema Slob met up with our own Joey Tedesco to watch Shrek Forever After, the fourth film in the highly successful Shrek franchise. What they got instead was a lot more than they expected.
The Return of the King (1980)
“His approach is cut short as he sees the reason a swarm of Orcs hasn’t gotten around to curb-stomping him into oblivion: they’re all dead. Naturally, we get a monologue explaining this, and I think even the five year olds watching at this point are probably going, ‘Move it along, goddammit, I got shit to do today!’”Beowulf (2007)
“Beowulf plays like someone gave $150 million to a group of 13-year-old boys and let them run amuck.”Marvel’s cinematic villain problem
“When people complain about adaptations of a work, it’s because they like the things that end up getting lost in translation, and the classic superhero/supervillain dynamic is one of those things that’s gotten lost in a lot of these Marvel flicks.”A Scanner Darkly (2006)
“Compared to most adaptations of the works of legendary sci-fi author Philip K. Dick (Total Recall, Blade Runner, Next, to name just a few), the animated film A Scanner Darkly is extremely faithful to its source material. But that’s not necessarily a good thing.”Predators (2010)
“The hunted are mostly one-dimensional, but the hunters are shown in all their glory and look fearsome as they track their prey.”The least anticipated movies of 2015
“These are the movies that almost nobody is excited about, and that almost nobody is looking forward to seeing (though, if history is any guide, people will still turn out in droves to pay to see them anyway).”
