10 Years Ago Today

"Shrek" premiered. Just saw this on the IMDB message board for the movie. Yes, it was on this day in 2001 that this hit movie premiered.

I didn't know too much about it before it premiered, but when I saw the large poster at my town's cinema, I knew I wanted to see it. I headed to the cinema the following day to see the film. Obviously this decision was a wise one as it has since been a favorite of mine. I saw it again on VHS in April 2002 and finally got the DVD in 2005 (I got my DVD player for Christmas in 2002). I have seen the sequels and have two of them on DVD (still haven't gotten the last one). It is and always be a fun to movie to watch. Some time this weekend I plan to watch the first one again on DVD for its 10th anniversary. I can still remember walking into the old cinema in my town (we got a new bigger one in 2006 with stadium seating). I always worked on Saturday back in 2001 (at the job I had until that summer), though somehow I was off this particular Saturday. Having decided to see this movie, this was the best time to do it. I immediately loved it.

Yes, hard to believe it's been 10 years. Time has gone just too fast.
