Alexander R (gb) wrote: The most disappointing part about kinky boots is that with a little more grit it could have been excellent. As it stands the movie is mostly milquetoast, relying on contrived altercations to effect drama. The fact that the film came out years after the Full Monty doesn't help its stance as relevant or unique. In the end it's still a light hearted work with enough laughs to warrant a view.

Justin A (ru) wrote: Juliane Moore gets pregnant without Hugh Grant's knowledge, with him believing she is on birth control and it is her decision to keep it despite any feelings he may have. Tom Arnold's children continually are rude and a constant nuisance to Hugh Grant, and he physically attacks Hugh Grant on multiple occasions. Everyone judges Hugh Grant's character. Why? The screenwriters make him out to be the misguided fool, but he does absolutely nothing wrong. I found this pretty offensive actually.Anyway, that's aside from the actual movie which isn't really funny and would have been a complete disaster if not for a few funny scenes with Robin Williams and the movie getting decent towards the end when it became all slapstick. Not recommended.

Kevin N (mx) wrote: There is a scene in 'Shadows in Paradise' in which the film's central character (played with exquisite nothingness by Matti Pellonpaa) goes to a cinema to see a movie. The movie is one of Leone's "Man With No Name" films. This is Aki Kaurismaki's own study of a man with no name, but it is quite different. This character does have a name, as it's safe to assume Clint Eastwood's character did at one point, but here it is withheld because Nikander (his last name) doesn't seem to trust the people around him with it. Or, perhaps, he doesn't see its use in such an impersonal world. This is the first in Kaurismaki's "Proletariat Trilogy", and it is molded around the hardships and prejudices of lower-class lives. Nikander is an extraordinary character because he gains our sympathy not through forced pity but through an honesty he wears on his face. When he tries to take his girlfriend to a fancy restaurant, he does his best to dress up, but the maitre d' won't seat him because he isn't acting the part- he doesn't have the bourgeoisie poker face, he's never had to hide. He is a human being stripped down to bare essence, and he remains admirable through sequences where he goes to jail, gets drunk, becomes violent. Kaurismaki pairs Nikander with the character of Ilona Rajamki (the terrifically expressionless Kati Outinen), a person, I suspect, less honest at heart, and he builds some kind of bizarre romance around them, one that feels animalistic but, again, honest. This is romantic comedy of the blackest variety, a real deadpan treat and a blunt observation of proletariat life.
Darren H (au) wrote: There are some cheap thrills to be had in this rodent-take on the story, Moby Dick. The budget 1980s production give the film a straight-to-video feel - it has Shannon Tweed and Peter Weller after all - which only adds to its camp appeal.

Mike S (mx) wrote: Sweet and amusing, The Grand Seduction is entertaining, even if it does depend on deception and criminality for its plot. A small fishing town needs to have its own doctor to convince a big company to set up a new plant there (they also need to bribe the company's boss, at his request, but this subplot really doesn't go anywhere). As punishment for possessing cocaine while travelling through a nearby airport, a handy doctor is forced to work at Tickle Cove for a month. The townsfolk do everything in their power, including listening in on his phone calls, to create the perfect town for Dr. Lewis. This includes serving his favourite meal at the local bar, building a cricket pitch, and encouraging what appears to be the only young woman in the town to flirt with him (she resists on principle).The performances are endearing (it took me several minutes to figure out that lead Brendan Gleeson, playing on out-of-work fisherman, was also "Mad-Eye" Moody in the Harry Potter films) and the dialogue is sharp and witty. The plot, however, is pretty thin when I think about it a bit, and it's also pretty mean-spirited. This is a good, funny Canadian film, but it probably doesn't travel well outside Canadian borders.
