4/5 100% The Infinite Man " What The Infinite Man lacks in size it makes up for in inventive, emotionally potent storytelling as a sci-fi, a comedy and a romance. That kind of trifecta is a rarity indeed." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Sep 7, 2014
2/5 46% Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) " If Sin City was a hard-on of sex and violence told in an eye popping world of gritty nourish delights, than Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is its impotent follow up." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Sep 7, 2014
3.5/5 62% Draft Day (2014) " Entertainingly dramatizes the tight rope, wheeling and dealing thrills that play out during one of America's biggest sports events." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Sep 7, 2014
4/5 86% Night Moves (2014) " Here is a thriller that portrays the heavy ramifications of a "justified" crime with a steady, grounded rhythm that gives power to every sin committed." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 30, 2014
4/5 95% What We Do In The Shadows " Just like the addictive bloodlust these characters have, What We Do in the Shadows is a film that demands repeated viewings with its ever quotable dialogue and wacky situations where the supernatural meets the mundane to gut-busting results." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 30, 2014
4/5 85% Predestination (2015) " Features The Spierig Brothers at their innovative and creative best, while also boasting a revelatory performance by Sarah Snook." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 30, 2014
4/5 95% Two Days, One Night " The Dardenne brothers expertly use confrontation to create great drama, and from that great drama arises quite the potent tale about principles in the face of hardship. " — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 26, 2014
2/5 34% God's Pocket (2014) " So unlikeable are these characters and disinteresting their plight that investing even a crumb of energy into their story is an investment wasted." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 21, 2014
2/5 63% The Maze Runner (2014) " Another young adult sci-fi tale of survival is played out to sparsely thrilling and all too familiar results, proving the popular genre has run its course." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 18, 2014
3/5 94% Felony (2014) " At its best, it reminds of the powerful corrupt-cop dramas directed by Sydney Lumet. At its worst, it's rampart with the kind of stodgy plot problems that haunts many an Australian dramatic feature." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 17, 2014
4/5 100% All This Mayhem " With a strong story at its core and the archive footage to back it up, All This Mayhem proves to be not only an engrossing story but an important one as well." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 17, 2014
3.5/5 60% The Grand Seduction (2014) " A snug film about community and the torture of men out of work. There's a warmth to it, a likeability that doesn't wear off. Gleeson's big grizzly bear persona is a big reason why." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 17, 2014
2.5/5 33% The Expendables 3 (2014) " The combined might of Hollywood's greatest action heroes can't survive against Sylvester Stallone's inflated ego." — Matt's Movie Reviews

Posted Aug 4, 2014
2/5 66% Lucy (2014) " Luc Besson's grasp cannot sustain his out of this world vision of creating an action movie that is as revolutionary in its ideas as it's stimulating in its visuals, resulting in a muddled mess of both." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 3, 2014

Posted Aug 3, 2014

Posted Aug 3, 2014
4/5 92% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) " Guardians of the Galaxy is a pleasant surprise from start to finish, an all-rounder of a blockbuster that excels in making us laugh as potently as it awes with its sensational action packed style." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 24, 2014
2.5/5 18% And So It Goes (2014) " Rob Reiner's inability to elicit some sort of spark between his two leads continues to prove that his best days are behind him." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 23, 2014
3.5/5 27% Deliver Us from Evil (2014) " It's the weight that director Scott Derrickson gives to not only the horror, but the fallen souls who combat it that makes Deliver Us from Evil such an effective genre mash-up. " — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 23, 2014

Posted Jul 23, 2014
2/5 42% Words And Pictures (2014) " In the end none of its gels, leaving fragments of a good movie that with a little more focus, and a little more polish, could have reached its potential." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 21, 2014
3.5/5 94% These Final Hours " An incredibly bleak yet never the less effective pre-apocalypse movie, that stunningly portrays an Australia succumbed to a culture of death during the most fleeting and precious moments of creation." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 20, 2014
2.5/5 18% Sex Tape (2014) " An R-rated comedy that thinks it's provocative, yet is handcuffed by the inhibitions of its rom-com genre" — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 16, 2014
4.5/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " Matt Reeves masterful weaving of the spectacular visual effects, powerful emotional depth and complex morality rich themes has created not only an entertaining blockbuster, but a transcendent one that is rich in value and in message." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 2, 2014
4/5 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) " It begs the question: Are animated studio such as Pixar and DreamWorks catering to a much more mature audience? Or are they pushing the hearts and minds of wee-ones into new, dark boundaries?" — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 29, 2014
4/5 61% The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (2014) " The beauty of Benson's two films is that while they do work best as companion pieces, the material and performances are so strong that they also work as standalone movies, both driven by the heartbeat of their separate subjects. " — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 17, 2014
4/5 89% Locke (2014) " Steven Knight has delivered not only a powerfully minimalistic picture, but a morally attuned one as well, that portrays how one immoral act can bring about a lifetime of affliction. " — Matt's Movie Reviews

Posted Jun 15, 2014
4/5 98% Jodorowsky's Dune (2014) " No one knows exactly what kind of film Jodorowsky's version of Dune would have been like. But what's for certain is that Jodorowsky's Dune is in itself an entertaining, fascinating portrait into what could have been." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 15, 2014

Posted Jun 13, 2014
4/5 95% Snowpiercer (2014) " A nightmare inducing, violent collection of left wing fears enhanced and packaged into a madcap post-apocalyptic movie unlike any other of its kind." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 13, 2014
4.5/5 99% Boyhood (2014) " Boyhood is not only a masterful film but a culturally rich one as well, a cinematic equivalent to the Mark Twain coming of age classic "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" yet made for a new generation." — Matt's Movie Reviews

Posted Jun 4, 2014

Posted Jun 4, 2014
3/5 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " 22 Jump Street ups the bromance between Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill to a new level, yet forgets that a great buddy cop movie needs quality action to go along with the gut busting laughs." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 4, 2014
4/5 90% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " An exciting and character driver action movie that features blockbuster king Tom Cruise in top form." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 3, 2014
3/5 48% Maleficent (2014) " Jolie draws upon that deep emotional well to portray the agony, heartbreak and anger, that transforms this pure young fairy with the horns and mighty wings into a violated, vengeful villain clad in a leather outfit that's as black as her heart." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted May 28, 2014
1.5/5 33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) " Perhaps Seth MacFarlane thought that this would be a Blazing Saddles for a new generation, yet A Million Ways to Die in the West belongs way, way on the other side of the western comedy spectrum. " — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted May 27, 2014
2.5/5 10% Grace Of Monaco " With never ending shots of Nicole Kidman in one beautiful ensemble after another while bathed in warm light, too much thought was put into presenting Grace Kelly the style icon rather than Grace Kelly the human being: mother, wife, princess." — Matt's Movie Reviews

3/5 80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) " While The Fault in Our Stars can be overbearingly schlocky at times, it is also an emotionally heartfelt film, especially in regards to the central romance that is sure to make the target audience swoon." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted May 20, 2014
4/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " A bold, dark and important chapter in a superhero franchise that continues to evoke the past atrocities of man, in order to portray a fantastic fable of hope amidst hopeless times." — Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted May 19, 2014
