Shrek Forever After

Once in a while a film gets released in theaters that’s so big other movies go out of their way to avoid coming out on the same weekend. The same thing happens on Tuesday’s with DVD releases where you’ll notice one major title alongside several films you’ve probably never heard of before. This week that major title is… Scouts Honor: Badge To the Bone. Other titles out this week include Christopher Nolan’s conversation starter Inception, Shrek Forever After, two Roger Corman releases about memorable ladies with guns, a renamed Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre, and more.

This Week in Blu-ray

This Week in Blu-ray, we get one of the most exciting and diverse slates of HD releases that we’ve seen all year. From the definitive event film of 2010 to a few beautiful additions to the Criterion Collection, there is a lot to be excited about. I might as well call it the big director edition of TWiBD: Christopher Nolan, David Cronenberg, Guillermo Del Toro and Brett Ratner. Wait, all but that last one. Even my own predisposition to like below-the-line action movies can’t lead me to become victim to the siren song of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Especially when there are so many wonderful releases to talk about, instead. So grab your credit card and mounting debt and lets go shopping for a slew of new Blu-rays.

The A-Team

Shrek’s reign at the top of the charts is sure to come to an end this weekend, and two new films are battling it out to see which can take the crown. Will it be Jackie Chan’s mastery of karate or Quintin ‘Rampage’ Jackson’s skills at driving a big ass van that wins the weekend?

Shrek Box Office

Princes from Persia and Cougars from the City couldn’t take Shrek down, so no one was expecting talking dogs, annoying killers, genetic mutations, or even British rock stars to get the job done, either.

McDonald

This is what happens when movie marketing goes wrong. This week, McDonald’s will recall about 12 million Shrek drinking glasses because federal regulators found they contain the toxic metal cadmium, which poses some potentially serious health risks.

Two, big, new movies. One, giant ogre still holding down the fort at the top. Neither Sex and the City 2 nor Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time could take the lead from Shrek Forever After.

This is it, folks. The weekend we’ve all been waiting for. The answers are finally going to be revealed to the world. Is Donkey really the smoke monster? Who will Fiona choose between Shrek and Puss in Boots? Will Lord Farquaad make a surprise appearance at the last minute and take out everyone with sticks of dynamite lifted from the Black Rock? All of this and more will finally be answered in the final installment, Shrek Forever After.

Sequels

Sequels are an inevitability for two reasons… greed and a dearth of creativity. It’s a challenge to find a necessary sequel amongst all the crap, or even one that carries the original story to new and exciting places.
