English - Media Review Coursework

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Media Coursework Write film reviews of "Shrek 2" for two different Audiences. Adult Audience It's rare for a sequel to top its predecessor, especially if the original is so successful, but "Shrek 2", in everyway possible, has broken that never broken theory. Shrek, the sweet, lovable, green coloured ogre, who first appeared in "Shrek" early 2001, brought forward a new leash in animation technology.

Middle

Picking up right after the honeymoon of Shrek and Princess Fiona, royal messengers summon the two to Fiona's homeland; the land of Far Far Away, for a weekend with the folks. Little do they know a resentful father, a scheming Fairy Godmother and a metrosexual Prince Charming all stand in their way, preventing the two from living happily ever after.

There are jokey nods to past movies like: "Mission Impossible"; "King Kong" and "Lord of the rings". ...read more.

Conclusion

Similarly with every other part of this breathtaking animation hit, the soundtrack that accompanies the careful creation and editing of the film has been made sure by filmmakers, to produce the best result possible.
