I watched an advance screening of "Shrek Forever After" tonight.
It was amazing! The movie did an incredible job conveying emotional states (desolation, despair, missing a loved one horribly), without being heavyhanded. It was reminiscent of how "Up" used a montage to display the arc of a marriage over decades.
I'm impressed that the fourth installment of the film turned out to be the best in the series. Highly recommend!
