The Rotoscopers review DreamWorks' second CGI animated film, the amazing, hilarious, irreverent Shrek.


  • Main Discussion: Shrek (2001)

  • Morgan and Chelsea saw this movie in theatres together and bonded over the fairy tale and Disney parodies.

  • Mason goes in depth about the lighting, rigging, animation and character designs.

  • Animation technology really shows its age.

  • So quotable!

  • John Powell did the score. He's like a Rotoscoper for music--Disney, DreamWorks, and everything in between.

  • New DREAMWORKS theory: all DreamWorks films are biblical.

  • Which Eddie Murphy character is better? Donkey or Mushu?

  • This movie works because it points out the ridiculousness of fairy tales.

  • Duloc is a ripoff of Disneyland. But it's hilarious.

  • Donkey is so dense, but it's what makes him so endearing.

  • The theme of layers really is critical to the whole film.
