Shrek the 3rd

Shrek the 3rd is scheduled to be released tomorrow and I assure you all this movie should not be missed. Shrek the 3rd continues the fine tradition of the first two Shrek movies. Will Shrek become King? Will he become a father? Will Prince Charming It is tame enough for the kids yet has enough wit and humor to keep adults well entertained. All of the great characters have returned: Shrek, Feonia, Donkey, Puss (in boots), and even the evil Prince Charming; and many wonderful new characters have been added making this the most star studded cast to grace far, far away yet! I found myself laughing over and over again. This is a great movie to take the kids, a date, or even yourself to. I recommend trying to buy tickets in advance if you're going this weekend as it will probably sell out almost every showing.
If you see the movie this weekend, come back and leave a comment and let the rest of the Spoon, Full of Truth readers know what you thought!

Johnny Cash: Ultimate Gospel

To be honest I was first introduced to Johnny Cash with the crazy media coverage surrounding the release of Walk the Line. As a fan of country music my whole life, I now realize how insane and highly unlikely that is. When I was asked to review ‘Cash: Ultimate Gospel’ I was very excited as I had not previously heard any of his gospel songs. The album features classic gospel tunes such as “Swing Low Sweet Chariot” and “Amazing Grace” as well as several less known but equally beautiful favorites. Starting off with a brief sermon by Cash himself the album flows effortlessly from one tune to the next, with an amazing sound quality. If you are a casual Johnny Cash fan or anyone who appreciates excellently performed gospel music this is a must have!

Catch and Release Soundtrack

I really enjoyed the Catch and Release soundtrack. I hadn’t heard any of the songs on the compilation prior to listening to this CD and I am honestly able to say that I liked all of them. Upon completion of listening I thought that it reminded me a bit of the OC soundtracks (I haven’t actually listened to one, but it’s the same sort of music). The only band missing is Rooney. That being said I thought it was very up-to-date with some of the newer offerings it provided. I am actually interested in seeing the movie more so than I was before. Catch and Release seems like something I would watch (it was all definitely something I would listen to).

I enjoyed the Catch and Release soundtrack as well. It was mellow yet modern. It had a good mix of artists I had heard of and ones I was not familiar with, but all the tracks worked very well with one another. I had no interest in seeing the movie (I'm pretty much against anything with Jen Garner since she became Ben Affleck by association) but that didn’t carry over to the music that was selected for the film, which I enjoyed very much. I was especially fond of the first two songs on the album (by Foo Fighters and Lemonheads). I would definitely recommend that people check this out.
