I'm a law graduate with no interest in the law, but a deep and lifelong passion for film, music, TV and video games... but mostly film.

    Shoulda been Paranorman. Brave was decent, but uninspired. More at the level of good Dreamworks than vintage Pixar. Hope they find their form again soon.

    I really loved the Death of Mr Lazarescu, but I don’t see how it’s a comedy.

    Summer of Sam was before his oscar and I don’t like it. Of the others, the only one I’d say was actually good was Midnight in Paris. With him, it’s more a matter of relative mediocrity than actually being bad. Besides, that’s only four films in a decade, which isn’t a very good amount for such a prolific actor.

    Cusack was a difficult one, but I put him in more out of disappointment than anything. It was similar with Johnny Depp’s inclusion. Both have just hit slumps recently.

    I loved him in the Dark Knight. Were it not for the whole Heath Ledger thing, it would have been the film that broke him into the mainstream. As it was, everyone, including him, was overshadowed.

    I loved Rango and the first Pirates film, and didn’t mind The Weatherman or his Ring remake, but, honestly, the guy’s too inconsistent to really be anywhere on my list of good directors. He clearly can be good, but too often isn’t. I guess he’s just too self-indulgent.
