I have to say, the Puss In Boots trailer surprised me. I was expecting another insipid, stupid, aggravating entry into the Shrek universe that would cause me to roll my eyes so far back that I was staring at my own brain. That’s the reaction I usually get when I see a trailer for one of the Shrek sequels nowadays. But Dreamworks surprised me by making it look much, much worse.
First of all, starting it with an Inception joke? Good thinking. Very clever. And then it just gets worse:
Yep. That’s 65 seconds you ain’t gettin’ back, kids. It may not seem like a long time, but a few decades from now, you’re going to be lying on your deathbed and the final seconds are ticking past and the last fetid breath rattles out of your lungs. And you’re going to hate yourself, because that’s 65 seconds of your life that you wasted on this piece of shit trailer.
