    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.
    • The blatant transformation ripoff of the Beast's transformation. The toes!
    • Voicemail: Angela
