reviews for Jupiter Ascending, The Imitation Game, Time Stands Still, and Godot5

I’ve been a busy boy. I don’t know if Juice is happy with my recent burst of productivity but considering all the shows that are coming up now on February and all the Oscar films that were delayed from showing outside of the US because they were hoping Oscar hype would help them sell their films overseas, I’ve got my work cut out for me this time.

Check out my articles here:

Jupter Ascending: Not High at All

The Imitation Game: Brilliant and Moving

All That You Can’t Leave Behind: a review of Time Stands Still

Once is Not Enough: a review of Godot5

The incredible cast of The Imitation Game which includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Allen Leech, and Matthew Goode. All of them, acting up a storm.

Except for Jupiter Ascending, which was pretty God awful, Everything else was so provocative and compelling. The Imitation Game is brilliant. Time Stands Still proves to be yet another fantastic Red Turnip Theater production. And the full title of Godot5 is Godot5: Five Ruminations on Samuel Beckett’s ‘En Attendant Godot.’ JK Anicoche’s brilliant vision pits five different takes of Waiting for Godot and culls the play for context and meaning by changing the requirements of the cast in each production. It’s a fantastic idea but it requires audiences to view at least two different productions to see the whole concept fully at work.

This is going to be a tough month for me as the Philippine Arts Month is hitting full stride and I will be all over the place trying to catch as many shows as possible while watching as many movies as I can handle.

I hope my eyes, ears, and heart don’t bleed from all this stimulus. I really have to psych myself up for what’s about to happen in the next few weeks.
