Matt's Movie Reviews
The Nothing Men (2008)
Tomorrow, When the War Began (2012)
The Special Relationship (2010)
"The third act in the chronicles of Tony Blair features Michael Sheen and scribe Peter Morgan in fine form, but a shaky turn by Dennis Quaid mars The Special Relationship from reaching its full potential. "
The Ghost Writer (2010)
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
The Box (2009)
An Education (2009)
The Expendables (2010)
Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)
The Princess and the Frog (2009)
Julie & Julia (2009)
Van Diemen's Land (2009)
500 Days of Summer (2009)
State of Play (2009)
Inglourious Basterds (2009)
"WWII revamped Quentin Tarantino style, Inglourious Basterds succeeds as the ultimate fantasy revenge story, a Kill Hitler which stands as one the best works in the career of its influential filmmaker. "
Star Trek (2009)
Me and Orson Welles (2009)
Alice in Wonderland (2010)
The Book of Eli (2010)
Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)
"With Centurion, writer/director Neil Marshall channels Mel Gibson to create a suspenseful and blood soaked chase picture, while Michael Fassbender convincingly delivers on his promise of future greatness. "
The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010)
Valhalla Rising (2010)
The Wolfman (2010)
She's Out of My League (2010)
Date Night (2010)
The Losers (2010)
Bran Nue Dae (2010)
Remember Me (2010)
The Runaways (2010)
Beneath Hill 60 (2010)
Robin Hood (2010)
"Audience rousing cinema of this size and class does not come along often. A titillating conclusion leaves open the possibility of a sequel, and if Robin Hood is anything to go by, then more than merrier. "
How to Train Your Dragon (2010)
"Any reservations that this is a straight forward remake of Abel Ferrara's hardcore Catholic redemption drama should be left on the wayside, for this Bad Lieutenant is a different monster all together. "
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)
"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third outing in the supernatural saga of high romance and higher camp, finally shows its fangs with a dazzling display of imagery to go along with a hurried sense of danger. "
Animal Kingdom (2010)
"As the film begins and Anthony Portos' mournful score plays over the opening credits, it's clear that Animal Kingdom is not interested in following the tried and true formula of flash visuals, glamorous violence, and caricature seen in many an Australian "
The Hangover (2009)
"A fun time is had watching these three men piece together a night that never was, something of an old school detective story mixed with a heavy dose of adult humour. Better comedies have been released, yet not many as brazen as The Hangover. "
The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)
"An epic movie which is large in scope and personnel, The Bridge on the River Kwai speaks of the code of honour amongst men during war, the respect shared by enemies of war, and the madness which war evokes. "
Michael Clayton (2007)
Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)
