Film: The Green Hornet

The Green Hornet Directed by Michel Gondry (2011) jusco’s Rating: ★ Wow, what a massive, full blown trainwreck. A complete disaster and quite seriously one of the worst films I’ve seen. Is it that bad? Take it from me, it is. In fact, what was Seth Rogen thinking? I expected at least a half-decent film […]

Film: How to Train Your Dragon

How to Train Your Dragon Directed by Chris Sanders & Dean DeBlois (2010) jusco’s Rating: ★★★1/2 Well done, DreamWorks. When you set your mind to it, you can create good animation films, despite being under the gigantic shadow of Pixar most of the time. How to Train Your Dragon is an excellent and enjoyable film […]

Film: Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels Directed by Guy Ritchie (1998) jusco’s Rating: ★★★ It’s like Snatch‘s twin brother (read my review here), which I guess is understandable considering it’s the same director. Guy Ritchie‘s first film is in typical fashion; bizarre, erratic, whimsical. Once again following several interlinking story arcs, it is a puzzling […]

Film: Snatch

Snatch Directed by Guy Ritchie (2000) jusco’s Rating: ★★★ Snatch is an eccentric, original film that combines both gangster and comedic elements to create a relatively successful and refreshing film (‘original’ is subjective; it’s supposedly too similar to Guy Ritchie‘s previous film, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, but then again I haven’t seen that […]

Film: Kill Bill: Vol. 2

Kill Bill: Vol. 2 Directed by Quentin Tarantino (2004) jusco’s Rating: ★★★1/2 Was I satisfied with the finale of Tarantino’s epic 4-hour Kill Bill (I combine Vol. 1 and 2 because you can’t watch one volume and not watch the other; it’s the same as watching just half of any film)? Yes. Did Vol. 2 […]

Film: Kill Bill: Vol. 1

Kill Bill: Vol. 1 Directed by Quentin Tarantino (2003) jusco’s Rating: ★★★★ Quentin Tarantino is one of the greatest and most consistent film directors around (don’t forget eccentric). This film is no exception of the high quality expected of his works. It is easily one of his most accessible films and an exciting cinematic piece […]

Book: 鋼の錬金術師27 (Fullmetal Alchemist 27)

鋼の錬金術師27 (Fullmetal Alchemist 27) Author: 荒川弘 (Hiromu Arakawa) (2010) jusco’s Rating: ★★★★1/2 I can’t believe it’s all over. I remember when I read the first volume of Fullmetal Alchemist and was wowed by everything that unfolded; the lovable and strong-hearted characters, the intense fight scenes, the emotional and tear-jerking moments. The long journey of the […]
