Puss in Boots: directed Chris Miller; written by Tom Wheeler, David H. Steinberg and Brian Lynch
Even without taking the actual movie into consideration, there is something immediately annoying about Puss in Boots. Most would agree that somewhere around the third entry the appeal of the Shrek franchise dwindled as the writers tried – with little avail – to drag their thin premises out for an hour and a half. So, it is with trepidation that I approach Puss in the Boots, because regardless of how you look at it the idea of a spin-off on a money-spewing franchise which denigrated into a critically reviled one in its last few entries reeks of nothing BUT moneygrubbing entertainment. Then, there came rumblings of the film’s alleged geniality and I figured that, perhaps, I was prejudging its potential so I entered the film with less trepidation even if I was a wee bee doubtful of it nonetheless.
