Writer Hates On Shrek, Everybody Sharpens Their Pitchforks

Remember kids, violence is never the answer. Unless you're a movie critic, of course, in which case you're basically obligated to replace your keyboard with a hatchet and destroy anything that threatens to spark joy in a mass audience.

To the delight of its many absurdly dedicated fans, today marks twenty years since the release of the first film in the beloved Shrek franchise — but not everyone was happy to celebrate the milestone. Leading the condemnation was a piece in The Guardian, accusing the movie of being crass and outdated. In it, writer Scott Tobias takes offence at everything from its celebrity cast to the fact that the main character flushes after he poops. 

Shrek is one of the defining movies of the early 2000s, one that won an Oscar for its huge contribution to film. Shrek is one of the few cultural artefacts to unites the age groups, as the war between Gen Z and Millennials rages on. Most important of all, Shrek's cultural impact has been so powerful it has gained a formidable second life as a meme that rivals any animated movie produced before or since.  In short, no media outlet would get away with publishing this type of slander without an almighty pile on. 

Sure enough, a lot of people have reacted with horror at this attempt to smear Shrek's good name. While a few have quietly agreed with the main points the article makes, many others have generated enough outrage to power an outrage factory for quite some time. In the words of the legendary green ogre himself, get out of my swamp.

Awkward TikTok Gets Dueted, Sparks The Most Insane Chain Of Events Possible

If there's one thing that everyone can learn from TikTok, it's that you should never underestimate the power of collaboration. This is doubly true when it comes to its duet feature, which has recently gained attention for taking users on a truly wild ride from start to finish.

Everything started when @marcus.dipaola posted a TikTok for his birthday, introducing his uncomfortable looking girlfriend to his followers. Someone dueted the video, jokingly suggesting she was being held hostage and well… what follows is a cinematic masterpiece.

During an interview with Game News, Uncharted voice actor Nolan North said he didn't think fans want a movie based around the Indiana Jones-esque series.

North voices and does the motion capture work for the series' protagonist Nathan Drake.

Even if he's wrong, Sony's motion picture division might not be able to get the thing off the ground.

Sony announced a film adaptation of the property back in 2009 and have had a ton of trouble putting it together.

They still don't have a director for it, having courted David O. Russell, Neil Burger, Seth Gordon and more for the project.

And this past August, Sony pushed the release date back to 2017.

So, if you're right Mr. North (and you probably aren't), you won't be disappointed if the film never happens.
