Shrek - Forever After

We watched "Shrek - Forever After" last week.  I've been seeing the ad in the papers for the Playback screenings of these second-run movies.  We hadn't seen this movie and I'm sure it's already out on DVD.  But it sure was great seeing it on the big screen.  We paid P25 each (for adults and kids) to see the movie.  We could've stayed to watch "Kimmy Dora" too, which was bundled with the price, but we were already tired out.  The kids come out of school early on Tuesdays and though much further from our house (Novaliches - about a 45 minute to an hour drive), it was worth the commute.  The Playback movies are still ongoing for those interested.  For more details and other upcoming movies, browse the Robinsons MovieWorld site.  The next showing for the Animation/Kids genre is "Avatar - The Last Airbender", Sept 29 to Oct 5.  But look at the site for a more accurate schedule.

I laughed and cried at some parts of the movie.  The lesson I got from the movie: we have to look around us and continue to count our many blessings.  There is no thing as "they lived happily ever after".  Well, there is, but not here in our world.  We must look behind what seems to be dull, boring, everyday simple moments and see the wonder, the magic.  The magic even in the simple smiles, giggles, hugs and words that were always there but we may have taken for granted.
