Matt's Movie Reviews
The Expendables 3 (2014)
The Hundred-Foot Journey (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. "
A Most Wanted Man (2014)
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
And So It Goes (2014)
Deliver Us from Evil (2014)
Words And Pictures (2014)
These Final Hours (2015)
"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. "
Sex Tape (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. "
How to Train Your Dragon 2 (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. "
20,000 Days on Earth (2014)
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. "
The Lunchbox (2014)
The Unknown Known (2014)
The Two Faces of January (2014)
The Rover (2014)
22 Jump Street (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. "
Grace Of Monaco (2014)
"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. "
Son Of God (2014)
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. "
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
The Trip To Italy (2014)
The Zero Theorem (2014)
The Babadook (2014)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
Muppets Most Wanted (2014)
"Brett McKenzie's songs are the true star and saviour in Muppets Most Wanted. Yet should another Muppets movie be in the works, needed are the right actors to bring something more than a name above the marquee. "
The Other Woman (2014)
"Like an irritating sense of déjà-vu, you would swear that you've seen this all before, as paranoid amnesiacs, European locales, and leather jacket clad hit men collide to make for a mildly entertaining thriller. "
The Exorcist (1973)
"The Exorcist not only tops the horror genre but transcends it, resulting in a profound experience where moviemaking horror, thrillingly dramatic storytelling and deeply felt spirituality of the Catholic kind make for pivotal viewing. "
"Rose Byrne not only keeps up with a seasoned comedic actor like Seth Rogen, but even steals scenes from him, proving once again that the girls are just as good as the boys when it comes to comedy of the R-rated variety. "
The Raid 2 (2014)
