Ep. 413: Shrek (2001) — 20 Years Later


Welcome to the swamp, fam! We're here this week with a very special birthday, our main meme'd Ogre is turning 20. It seemed only apt that we bring the bad boy and his sidekick to the analysis table. That's right, we're talking about the animated classic Shrek. It's Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, John Lithgow in the farce of the century (?). This week, we dive deep into the impact and legacy of Shrek on animation, including comedy and acting. We discuss the movies approach to pastiche and post-modernity. And, we wrap up with some quick hits on gentrification? All of that and more in this 20th anniversary discussion of Shrek!
