Film: WALL-E

January 23, 2011


WALL-E Directed by Andrew Stanton (2008) jusco’s Rating: ★★★★ Pixar is genius. WALL-E is one of my favourite of their works. How does an animated film with an almost complete lack of dialogue, a robot that makes cute noises and a multitude of fat humans work so well? I don’t know, but Andrew Stanton still […]

Film: How to Train Your Dragon

January 18, 2011


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 […]

December 9, 2010


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 […]

December 7, 2010


ゲド戦記 (Tales From Earthsea) Directed by 宮崎吾朗 (Goro Miyazaki) (2006) jusco’s Rating: ★★ I honestly don’t know where to start. Despite my love for Studio Ghibli, Tales From Earthsea was a disaster. It’s true, Goro Miyazaki did have an unbelievable amount of pressure from the entire world just because he was the son of Hayao […]

ルパン三世 カリオストロの城 (Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro) Directed by 宮崎駿 (Hayao Miyazaki) (1979) jusco’s Rating: ★★★★ I have so much respect for Hayao Miyazaki.

November 21, 2010


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Directed by David Yates (2010) jusco’s Rating: ★★★★ Bravo, David Yates. You have done it once again. For those who haven’t read the books or watched the previous 6 films, don’t even bother. You’ll be lost and confused the entire way. But for those familiar with Harry […]

Book: ONE PIECE 60

November 16, 2010


ONE PIECE 60Author: 尾田栄一郎 (Eiichiro Oda) (2010)jusco’s Rating: ★★★1/2 Volume 60. Who knew the series would last this long? Just proves the brilliancy of it. The first half of this latest volume covers a flashback of Luffy and Ace, and the second half touches upon the events after the ‘big war’, finally resurrecting the appearance […]
