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: I Love You Phillip Morris

I Love You Phillip Morris Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (2009) jusco’s Rating: ★★1/2 Jim Carrey is a great actor, though only at certain times (Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind). He is good in this one and it felt natural watching him play a likable gay guy. But watching Ewan McGregor as […]

Film: Music and Lyrics

Music and Lyrics Directed by Marc Lawrence (2007) jusco’s Rating: ★1/2 Music and Lyrics flops in its desperate attempt to charm us. It tries hard, but at the crucial moments it always falls short of reaching the mark. We’re left dry and wanting something more, and are further disappointed when we don’t get that mushy, […]

Shaun of the Dead Directed by Edgar Wright (2004) jusco’s Rating: ★★★★ What do you get when you put the apocalypse, zombies and the chaotic duo of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost together? You get Shaun of the Dead, a marvelously crafted, written and acted comedy with everything thrown in: troublesome parental relations, a girlfriend […]

Film: Four Weddings and a Funeral

Four Weddings and a Funeral Directed by Mike Newell (1994) jusco’s Rating: ★★★1/2 This delightful British romantic comedy kicked off Hugh Grant’s career and rightfully so. There’s something about him that is highly enjoyable to watch; we laugh at his witty remarks, we cringe when he is clumsy and makes stupid mistakes, we are happy […]

Film: The Kids Are All Right

The Kids Are All Right Directed by Lisa Cholodenko (2010) jusco’s Rating: ★★★1/2 The Kids Are All Right is a deeply touching, moving family drama. It’s all there; the ups and downs, the rebellious and frustrated teenagers, the arguments between the uptight parents, a third party that threatens to aggravate further the harmonious household. The […]

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 […]
