Shrek the Third In what seems like a time of sequels, and even more so, trilogies, all your favorite fairytale creatures are back in “Shrek the Third”. After a so-so performance in “Shrek 2”, creator Mike Myers is back in the swing of things with the third installment. While not as ingenious as the first Shrek film, “Shrek the Third” delivers a much more coherent and laugh-filled film than number 2. In film number one our fearless Shrek (Mike Myers) went off to rescue the princess in the highest room of the tallest tower and battle the fire-breathing dragon, all to get the deed to his swamp back from the sinister Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow). In the second film, the Fairy Godmother and her son Prince Charming plotted to take the princess away from Shrek and take over the kingdom of Far Far Away. ...

TMNT I’ve been bathing with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for almost twenty years. That hasn’t been out of choice. It’s been because I’ve had children at just the right ages to enjoy the whole concept of mutated ninja turtles fighting evil bad guys (EVIL BAD is not totally redundant because there are bad guys and evil bad guys, according to my kids, who know from bad guys), living in the sewers of a large city, and ordering pizza. I don’t know how many Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures I’ve bought over the years, but it seems like enough to populate a small city. Or at least a suburb, ward, or district. Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird first developed the idea of the four turtles named after Italian artists (Michaelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael) as a spoof to some of the comics field’s hottest selling series back in the early 1980s, specifically ...

Tim Burton's Corpse Bride Director Tim Burton is known for his view askew when it comes to movies. He broke out with “Beetle Juice” and slammed through the first two Batman movies of the 1980s, one of which was well-received and the other arrived amid controversy. Throughout his career, Burton has always followed his own interests and passions. He gave us “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and the latest incarnation of Willie Wonka, starring Johnny Depp, an actor who is just as well known for his own bizarre acting. Burton has an ongoing relationship with Depp. They did “Edward Scissorhands”, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” together, and are scheduled to reunite for the “Sweeney Todd” movie musical. They work well together, each of them bringing brilliance to their various roles in a movie. “Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride” is a simple story of innocent love, and you could describe and what happens in a ...

Polar Express, The “The Polar Express” is likely to become a perennial Christmas movie. if it hasn’t already. It will be going to be shown again and again to kids as the calendar winds down to Christmas. The storytelling is simple and heartfelt, and the computer generated art is beautiful. Add to that a breath-taking pace that will allow even adults to watch a repeat performance almost back-to-back almost immediately to review their favorite parts. The story originally took shape as a 32-page book written and drawn by Chris Allsburg. Hollywood seems to be having a field day with 32-page kids’ books lately, because “Shrek” began the same way. To further enlighten you, Allsburg wrote and drew two other books that became movies, both of which were also 32-pagers: “Jumanji” and “Zathura”. At 32 pages with pictures, the book was no doubt a great visual aid in the pitch to get the movie made. Allsburg is ...
