4/5 78% Alex & Eve "Funny, dramatic and at times suitably frustrating, Alex & Eve is just the kind of multicultural rom-com needed in Australian cinemas. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Apr 30, 2016
4/5 61% Joy (2015) "Engrossing, moving, funny and filled with charismatic performances, Joy just might be that film everyone looks back on in 10 years with exclamations of "underrated". " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

4.5/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "Abrams understands that a great Star Wars movie is not only about the whiz-bang external stuff, but also about the soul in its classic riff on the eternal struggle between the sides of light and dark (good vs evil). " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

4/5 94% Creed (2015) "Coogler expertly blends passion with precision and emotional storytelling with state-of-the-art technique in creating a movie that not only lives up to a legacy, but becomes a legend in its own right. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jan 23, 2016
2/5 88% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "Stylish, yet all posturing with no humanity; an exercise in brand control by those who have no interest in exposing their faults. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jan 20, 2016
4.5/5 82% The Revenant (2015) "A haunting, immersive and grizzly cinematic experience, The Revenant features Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu at the height of his filmmaking prowess, while an all-in Leonardo DiCaprio delivers the performance of a lifetime. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Dec 4, 2015
3/5 42% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "An engrossing film of magnificent visual and sound, yet little in the way of heart and spirit. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Dec 2, 2015
2.5/5 40% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) "The Argentinian original is known for its filmmaking prowess, with excellent editing and camera work creating a film filled with visual delights. At its best, this American remake is a glorified and overlong CSI episode. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Nov 18, 2015
4/5 97% Brooklyn (2015) "It's unashamed old school style and charm evokes the era of Classic Hollywood, and its characters are beautifully written and portrayed and worthy of our heart and time. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

Posted Oct 28, 2015
4/5 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "Bridge of Spies is as much of a love note from Spielberg to Donovan and the freedoms he rightly defended, as it is a expertly constructed political thriller that although light in tension, is never the less palpable in its stakes. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Oct 25, 2015

Posted Oct 25, 2015
3/5 95% We Are Still Here (2015) "Geoghegan does a great job in keeping the tension high, teasing his ghastly ghosts with escalating bouts of gore infested violence to make We Are Still Here a film that will satisfy both haunted house and gore horror fans. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Oct 25, 2015

Posted Oct 16, 2015
2.5/5 75% Black Mass (2015) "Black Mass has gone through numerous rewrites and incarnations over the last several years. Somewhere during that time whatever soul, whatever depth, whatever personality that inspired Depp to go that extra mile has disappeared. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Oct 16, 2015

Posted Sep 21, 2015
4/5 93% Sicario (2015) " Sicario is a film that will unnerve you and then stick with you after the credits roll, a crime thriller of immensely dark proportions akin to a nightmare but one whose monsters are very, very real. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

Posted Sep 21, 2015
2/5 39% Strangerland (2015) "Exemplifies why it's hard to sell Australian made films to the public, with potential there to create something intriguing, yet for every step forward it takes three back, a couple to the side and then does the arty-farty boogie. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Sep 21, 2015
3.5/5 61% Southpaw (2015) "There is much soul and spirit in its story of a broken man fighting to regain his family and career, and excitement in its brutal boxing scenes that will have viewers wince at every punch thrown. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

Posted Aug 10, 2015
2/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) "So insular the settings that the majority of the film takes place in that it asks the question: how can we expect to care whether any of these characters will save or destroy their world, when it doesn't even feel like they are a part of their world? " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 5, 2015
3.5/5 92% Slow West (2015) "Continues the strong streak of modern westerns with its visually breathtaking, atmospherically rich & solidly performed story of love & survival across the Wild West. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 30, 2015

" ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 30, 2015
4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "Tom Cruise stamps his claim as the greatest action star of our time with this nail biting, stylishly made action thriller filled with incredibly entertaining sequences. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

4/5 97% The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (2007) "Who would have thought that one of the years most intriguing and suspenseful films would be a documentary involving two grown men battling over the supremacy of an arcade game? " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 22, 2015
3/5 63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "Works as a surprisingly sweet and funny look at male comradery, even when it's seediness occasionally trounces its earnestness. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 12, 2015
2/5 26% Terminator Genisys (2015) "It's a reheat of original masterpieces, yet instead of deconstructed and pieced back together with care and heart it's merely zapped in a microwave, visually edible yet lacking taste and nutrition upon sample. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 12, 2015

4/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "While Tomorrowland didn't reach its financial expectations, time will surely confirm its richness. Bird & Lindelof have created something quite remarkable, a rare gem amongst other treasures. Cherish it. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 12, 2015
