Nos voisins Dhantsu
Québec comedians Réal Béland and Stéphane K. Lefebvre take off for the land of the rising sun, Japan. In Nos voisins Dhantsu, they prove once again that no culture is too different to take on. Their travelogue, mostly limited to Tokyo, is at times well-planned and executed in tightly rehearsed situations, sometimes the scenes use local actors and crew, and then at other times the film erupts in the complete craziness of improvisational comedy. Nos voisins Dhantsu captures Béland's view of an ordered, modest and mysterious society, often by challenging the stereotypical order and discipline that we think of when we think of Japan.
- Stars:Réal Béland Jr., Stéphane Lefebvre, Paul Arcand, Stéphane Gendron, Pierre Lebeau, Martin Levesque,
- Director:Alain Chicoine,
- Writer:Réal Béland Jr., Stéphane Lapointe, Stéphane Lefebvre, Christian Tétreault

(es) wrote: Song for Marion is very moderate in terms of the way it is made and how it tells its story. The main strengths are Arteton who is infectious in the supporting female role and Stamp who plays the crotchety old man very well, perhaps because he is a crotchety old man. There are few surprises but it knows its audience and it plays to that audience well.

(gb) wrote: Soul Plane is a blatant rip-off of Airplane! And though it had a few laughs, which I must admit, as a film it's pretty bad and pointless and its execution is quite poor in trying to keep the jokes rolling. The biggest problem with the film is that relies far too much on stereotypes to create its humor. There really aren't any redeeming aspects about the film. Like I said, I laughed a few times, but as a whole, Soul Plane just threads the same road that previous, much better comedies have travelled. The jokes though at times a bit funny, get tiresome and the cast aren't very good either. This one of the most pointless films that I have seen in a while, and all it does is recycle some old ideas, adds plenty of stereotypes with no genuine thought of trying to make a memorable comedy. If the script would have been rewritten and a lot of thought put into writing good jokes, then maybe this film would have worked better. I've seen far worst in the genre such as this, and I've seen my fair share of garbage, and Soul Plane is a film that tries far too hard at being amore "polished" comedy than it actually is. Soul Plane is simply a film that just doesn't have anything going for it, and it's just a stupid, mindless film that might have worked better if the film wouldn't have relied far too much on stereotypes. When that's the only thing that creates the comedy, you know the film be bland, uninteresting and not worth repeated viewings, and Soul Plane is exactly.

His first assignment in the secret society is to kill one of his old professors. He uses his honeymoon with the hottie as a chance to execute his mission."This, in your opinion, is a normal sex life?"Bernardo Bertolucci, director of The Grim Reaper, Before the Revolution, Partner, Luna, 1900, The Last Emperor, Little Buddha, and The Dreamers, delivers The Conformist. The storyline for this picture is fairly mediocre with some unique twists and characters. The acting is okay for this 70s Italian picture."I married you because I love you, not because you're a virgin."I came across this on Netflix some time ago and decided to add it to the queue. The plot is interesting and well done and the characters are worth following. This isn't perfect, or a complete waste of time, but I wouldn't go too out of my way to see it."I must ask myself what your aim is..."Grade: C+
(br) wrote: The premise of Demoted is pretty simple and predictable. Film is set in a tire-company and the two lead characters (Sean Astin and Michael Vartan) are both working in the sales department trying to sell tires over the phone. Job looks about as depressing and dead-end as any so they spend their time harrassing a third colleague (David Cross). They both are the favourites of the manager. When that manager dies , their harrassed colleague gets the manager's job and now it's payback time. The film is about how they are trying to cope with their new positions in the company.I did not expect a lot of this film. Came in with really low expectations and at first it seems that another 90 minutes of my life would be wasted on another crappy movie. The lead characters were really unlikeable and character-less. It's hard to symphatize with loser-assholes working a dead-end sales job and living in their mother's basements. So I was thinking this would feature David Cross as the main protagonist, trying to beat down these two guys. Instead the screenwriter decided to make him the villain. I have to say that David Cross is the star in this one. I liked him a lot in Arrested Development and he plays a similar delusional clumsy loudmouth.The story is thin, main guys are unlikeable and you first wonder what you are watching and why you are watching it. Some would find the film a bit slow-moving but I have no issues with that. It doesn't have to be MTV-style all of the time.Gradually you manage to conjure up some sympathy for the guys and the initial pity you feel for the David Cross character turns into a small form of hate because of all the incredible asshole moves he pulls off once he gets his hands on the scepter so to speak.It's a comedy and I have seen films that called themselves that and not cracked a smile. This one is different. It has his moments. I was on the ground laughing a few times. It might not be the subtlest comedy but this isn't the subtlest film. The fact that it made me laugh makes me ok with this one. It's entertaining when you're in the mood. It's like a bowl of spaghetti with regular tomato sauce : it does what it's supposed to but you won't get poetic over it and start clamoring the spaghetti's chef deserves a few Michelin stars.6/10

(ag) wrote: It's a movie with very inconsistent tone. It's subtle and nuanced at times, while blatant and predictable at other times. I don't think the movie knew what it wanted to be...that being said, it's worth watching for its historical significance. Benedict Cumberbatch was terrific in the lead role as Assange.
