Seabiscuit (2003)

"Written and directed by Gary Ross, whose last film was the amazing Pleasantville, this one doesn't quite attain the heights of its predecessor but is still a solid piece of old-fashioned moviemaking." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Hamlet (1948)

"Of the four versions of Hamlet that I've seen, this one is the most psychological, the one that truly delves into Hamlet's mind and psyche." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Peter Pan (2003)

"A requiem for lost childhood, which simultaneously stands in light judgment of Peter's refusal to grow up. It's a frank and rather beautiful conundrum that's wonderfully addressed." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Lost In Translation (2003)

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)

"Not to be missed -- a wonderful blend of Old Hollywood-style entertainment with modern technical skills, of brain candy and food for the soul. You'll never look at epics the same way again." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

House of Sand and Fog (2003)

"Everything that happens in the movie could have been avoided if Kathy had just opened her freaking mail." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

The Last Samurai (2003)

"If there was any justice in the world (and if there were no such thing as The Return Of The King), The Last Samurai would sweep up the technical awards come Oscar time." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003)

"While there are a few battle scenes, there's also an hour and a half of talking, and with so many characters, you need to have someone you can identify with." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Gentleman's Agreement (1947)

"I definitely can't fault Gentleman's Agreement for its subject matter, but man, does it ever beat you over the head with it." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

The Best Years of Our Lives (1946)

"The Best Years Of Our Lives is a wonderful character study, and touches on points of humankind's psychiatric makeup that are so obvious they are rarely discussed in cinematic form." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Anything Else (2003)

"Easily the most enjoyable Allen flick since Everyone Says I Love You, and on a par with his 1970s and early 1980s work." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

5/5 100%

The Lost Weekend (1945)

"More realistic than sentimentalized Hollywood crowd-pleasers like Harvey, and more accessible than complete downers like Leaving Las Vegas, The Lost Weekend is, to me, the definitive film on the subject of alcoholism." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Going My Way (1944)

"Even though I love a good family film now and then, this was too much even for me. It was like having a root canal of cream filling." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

5/5 92%

Mrs. Miniver (1942)

"One of the most powerful and effective propaganda films of all time ... the job of propaganda is to work your emotions and make you believe in the cause it's selling, and in this, Mrs Miniver succeeds 100%." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

How Green Was My Valley (1941)

"While I can't say How Green Was My Valley is the most enjoyable movie ever, it's definitely well-made, and sticks with you." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

You Can't Take It With You (1938)

The Life of Emile Zola (1937)

"If you sit down to watch The Life of Emile Zola, skip the first third of the movie, because frankly, the beginning blows goats." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

American Wedding (2003)

"The scene in which Jim brings Michelle's parents to the house for a serious talk, not realizing Stifler's organized a bachelor party with strippers, hearkens back to the screwball comedies of the 1930s." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Mutiny on the Bounty (1935)

"Gable makes a great Fletcher Christian, in his last movie without a mustache. The emotions which cross his face as Bligh commits one indignity after another upon various crew members is great 1930s dramatic acting." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Cavalcade (1933)

"It's all very stiff-upper-lip stuff, but 70 years after it was made, it still remains a very rousing, moving experience." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Grand Hotel (1932)

"Less a movie than a series of vignettes starring some of the greatest names Hollywood and the stage have ever produced." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Cimarron (1931)

"Taken by itself, as a film, without moral conundrums, it's actually a fairly engaging yarn. However -- and this is a HUGE however -- it's incredibly racist in its stereotyping of all sorts of people." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

All Quiet on the Western Front (1930)

"A gripping, disturbing, emotionally affecting movie about the loss of innocence and idealism." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

The Broadway Melody (1929)

Wings (1927)

"The main attraction for this movie is the aerial fight sequences. They're some of the most exciting combat scenes I've seen, and this is for a film that was made in 1927!" ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Boat Trip (2003)

"Apart from my disappointment that Roger Moore didn't use any funny Bond-related lines (let's face it, "license to drill" or "for your eyes only" would have been hilarious coming out of his mouth), the movie more than exceeded my expectations." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Adaptation (2002)

"Avoid it like the plague. You may be intrigued until the very Donald Kaufman-esque climax. Who, by the way, isn't even a real person. Therein lies both the joke of the movie, and this joke of a movie." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Chicago (2002)

"I don't think I've had more fun at a movie theater in a long time. The whole viewing was spent tapping my toes and trying not to sing aloud. Heck, I even wanted to clap after each number!!!" ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Minority Report (2002)

Gangs of New York (2002)

"I'm going out on a limb and predicting that Gangs Of New York will win best picture, best director, and a boatload full of other Oscars come late March. Not because it deserves all of them, but, as is the case with so many other Oscar-winning movi" ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Barbershop (2002)

24 Hour Party People (2002)

"Steve Coogan makes a likeable enough narrator, and director Michael Winterbottom uses enough cinematic tricks to keep things interesting. Still, for those not in the know, 24 Hour Party People can seem 24 hours long." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews
