The stain glass window in the background of the knighting scene, is a reference to St. George slaying the last dragon in England. It is also a reference to a Prince slaying a dragon to save a Princess, or, in the case of Shrek, an ogre. See more »

Still worth seeing, but disappointing after the first 2
I had high expectations for this movie. When I saw Shrek 2, I was pleasantly surprised. Few sequels are as good as the original, but Shrek 2 was.
Shrek the third did not continue this trend. While there were sill plenty of funny moments, it was nowhere near as amusing or original as the first two. They could have done so much more with this movie if they had tried. At the end, I felt sort of cheated.
However, Shek the third isn't a bad movie in itself, only when compared to the others. I would still recommend going to see it. Unlike most, I liked Artie's character, even if he did talk too much (I'm not even a Justin Timberlake fan).
