Why did this have to become the last  of the Shrek series!?

I was disappointed by part 3. That was really bad compared to the first two. Shrek 2 is as good as, if not better, than the first and the first was a modern masterpiece, IMO. This one doesn't look too good seeing the early reviews.  

RESPONSE From Head RAZZberry: Congratulations, moviewizguy -- See, it's not impossible to admit something "disappointed" you. And, in other news, I agree with you (for once) in your appraisal of the three previous SHREK movies...

Clap  #1: For that laugh-out-loud funny picture caption. 

#2. For choosing this movie as the worst of the week. It screams "We're just doing this one for the money". The third movie was nothing special and would have been a good finale. But NOOOOO ... we have to try to go for the quick cash-in and make a fourth movie. Yes, a fourth movie, traditionally the worst in a movie series. And a rip-off of "It's A Wonderful Life", which has become a Hollywood cliche in its own right! So sad. 

I hope this bombs. "How To Train Your Dragon" should remain the best animated feature of the year.

What about Toy Story 3?? Truth be told I never really cared about that series, and this latest entry is yet another example of  "Let's cash in on something that hasn't had a sequel in over a decade!"

I've actually read that Toy Story 3 has played very well at certain screenings. Some have gone as far as to use the word "brilliant" to describe the film. However, I do think that How to Train Your Dragon will end up being this year's best animated film (it's my personal favorite film of the year so far)

Woah, woah. I wouldn't go that far for bashing Pixar. Their only sequel have been Toy Story 2 and that was better than the first film (IMO) and one would think the same for Toy Story 3. Early screenings say that it's as brilliant as all the other Pixar films.

I'ma be the wet blanket and say without pause that I've never liked any of the Shrek movies. I'm not really big on any Pixar or CGI anything, though. Toy Story 2 was the last time, and even then, I think it was just kinda that it wasn't what I was expecting it to be. Since then, just... nothing. They do nothing for me. At least the kiddy-friendly kind, I still kinda liked Battle for Terra.
Shrek 4 seriously looks only as dumb as the non-Pixars that've come out, and I think they all should be getting 20%'s.
And there's my Debbie-Downer 2 Cents on that.

I'm not saying Toy Story 3 is going to be bad; I just don't care. And of course it will make money because of 3-D surcharges. I'm also hoping it doesn't get the Best Animated Feature Oscar.

If I'm not wrong, Eddie Murphy made history by earning a Bafta nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his voice-over work in Shrek.

Could he get a Razzie nomination for Worst Supporting Actor for Shrek 4?

You have a good point there. Has anyone gotten a Razzie nod for his/her in an animated movie? Has an animated movie ever gotten Razzies nods for anything?

Star Wars: Clone Wars ring a bell perhaps? I actually think Shrek 4 looks better than Part 3 but I honestly doubt it's neccessary. It's just another money-grubber. I'm waiting for Toy Story 3.

One of the jokes that I loved in the trailer was the word play in "catastrophe" and "redonkulous." It's so stupid that it's so funny. Oh, and the movie is actually crawling up in RT. Some are calling it the best sequel, the first great summer film, and putting the series back on its track after part 3.

Ah, yes, for Worst Sequel, Remake or Rip-off. "Indiana Jones 4" blocked Star Wars: Clone War. Hmmm, two George Lucas movies in the same catagory, perhaps that's a clue.

1. The cat and donkey jokes just prove how low thw series has gone, to the point they are doing Saturday morning cartoon quality jokes ... and then laughing at them. What are they, Bob Saget? 

2. The best sequel? Doubtful. First great summer movie? Highly questionable. Putting the series back on track? Ah, it's the FINAL movie of the series ... unless you count the Puss and Boot spin-off ... ugh!

I saw the first (and best) two Shrek films, but I have never seen the third due to weak reviews, word of mouth, etc.  I doubt I'll see this either, though I don't think it will go to the point of NukeNuking the FridgeNuke like Indy 4 did.

Yep, the first two are the only ones you really need to see. Then again, that goes for just about EVERY movie series!

Adam Sandler, nominated for 8 CRAZY NIGHTS.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Further diluting the presence of animated work among RAZZIE® Nominations to date, Sandler's http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0271263/awards - was a multi-title nom, and was also for his work in the heinous, "dorkified" remake of http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0280590/awards - ...

Although I didn't, most of my classmates liked Mr. Deeds and Eight Crazy Nights. Sadly, they L-O-O-O-VE Adam Sandler movies.

It is sad that anybody loves Adam Sandler. It is a good thing though that they are "classmates," which means they will grow out of their love of him soon.

I think Sandler has this certain quality that makes people like him, although he is sometimes immature. I don't find him annoying.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: "Sometimes immature"??  Sandler has  been immature for about 90% of his entire screen career...

Sandler's appeal is the same reason people were stupid enough to vote for George W. Bush twice --It's the "oh, he's dumb and immature, just like me, so I relate to him." thing. In other words, anyone over the age of 21 should recognize Sandler for the one-trick pony that he is.

I just came home seeing this film not expecting much but I'm blown away. I think it's a really fantastic film and I prefer this to be the ending of the series rather than part 3. I thought this film is the most mature one in the series seeing how everything is taken seriously and that there are many moments of drama. Still, there are some funny, funny jokes here. Maybe the only complaint I had is that the climax battle is kinda weak, much like Iron Man 2. Still, I think it's a very good film and Dreamwork's marketing for the film is misleading. 8/10

Honestly, the series should have ended with #2, or #1 for that matter, but you know there's no limit to Hollywood's greed.

No wonder it's nominated for the People's Choice Awards for "Favorite Family Movie".But it's against TOY STORY 3.

Is this listed somewhere? Where did you find this out? Or did you just logically deduce this because it's an animated movie released in 2010?

Yeah, I'd like to know what Vits' sources are, or if he is just randomly going down a list of every animated movie that came out this year and GUESSING that by default, they are up for consideration. I'm thinking the latter.
