A fractured fairy tale for our times, SHREK hilariously re-introduced the world to all of the familiar fantasy conventions – and then turned them inside out and upside down. Voiced by Mike Myers, the titular ogre is the tale's unlikely protagonist – giant, green and fiercely unpleasant – but all is not as it seems in the land of Far, Far Away, and he is soon swept away from his beloved swamp and into the thankless role of rescuing princesses and saving the day.
