Very entertaining and enjoyable film

Posted : 3 years, 5 months ago on 21 December 2014 08:51 (A review of Maid in Manhattan)

Jennifer Lopez plays the role of a maid named Marisa Ventura in one of New York City's greatest hotels and is loved by all of her co-workers, both male and female.
A very polished butler took her under his so-called wing and guided her into a manager's position, which she was very well qualified to fill. Marisa is persuaded to put on a very expensive outfit and becomes involved with a very well known politician running for the US senate, Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes).
Christopher takes one look at Marisa and falls completely in love with her. We have seen movies like this over and over again with literally the same story; however I do believe that J.Lo acted well and looked stunning in the movie.

Great film: Funny, charming, poignant, refreshing

Posted : 3 years, 5 months ago on 17 December 2014 01:21 (A review of East is East)

East Is East, a culture-clash comedy set in the 1970s, is a great film. It is thoroughly accessible, and while it never takes itself too seriously, it still manages to be a funny, charming, poignant and refreshing film. It starts off a bit slow, but the performances, script and story more than makes up for it. The script is constantly funny, and the story is surprisingly compelling about Asian integration in Britain.
Om Puri especially gives a powerful performance as the patriarch of the family. While he loves his family very much the traditions make him a very strict father. Linda Bassett is great as his wife, and out of the younger cast, Jimi Mistry really stands out.
The sons yearn for freedom, and are resistant to the life their father wishes them to lead.
All in all, a great film that breaks the mould for films similar to it.
