3.5/5 No Score Yet Red Billabong "A unique and original creature feature, Red Billabong overcomes any VFX limitations with an intriguing story and truly tense scares, resulting in one of the more innovative and interesting monster movies to be released in some time. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 28, 2016
2/5 82% Sausage Party (2016) "An animated adventure that boasts the visual prowess of the best mainstream releases in the medium, yet the storytelling sensibility of a stoner nodding furiously mid toke at the Zeitgeist documentary playing on the TV. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 9, 2016
2.5/5 26% Suicide Squad (2016) "Throughout Suicide Squad an unease can be felt, akin to a beast trapped in a PG-13 cage chomping at the bit to get out. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Aug 2, 2016
4/5 72% War on Everyone "McDonagh blends the outrageous with the profound, where quick witted one liners and choice variety of curse words sit comfortably alongside discussion on the philosophy of right versus wrong. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 29, 2016
3.5/5 88% Blood Father (2016) "Gibson is superb here. With white patched black beard, muscular frame and piercing eyes capable of burning holes into any man's soul, Gibson reminds of a grizzly papa bear whose roar matches his bite. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 29, 2016
4/5 83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "Star Trek Beyond represents a key factor that separates the great genre films from the mediocre, and that is the stakes at play in a battle between good (no matter how flawed) and evil (no matter how created). " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 24, 2016
2/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "This attempt at rebooting the classic 1984 supernatural comedy is all kinds of bad, neither funny, scary, or in any way memorable save for its capacity to bring on cringes at a record rate. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 16, 2016
2.5/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "Yet for all its posturing and chest thumping, this 49th film incarnation of the Tarzan character results in a resounding...meh. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 16, 2016
4/5 87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "Films about brotherhood come in many forms, yet rare do they capture the connection of different personalities with the engrossing, free spirited tone that Linklater does here. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 16, 2016
3/5 32% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) "Roland Emmerich does Roland Emmerich things by going all out in his continued tale of mankind vs alien, resulting in popcorn munching entertaining of the OTT kind. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jul 16, 2016
3/5 28% Warcraft (2016) "Video game to movie adaptations are known to be historically bad. Warcraft doesn't quite break that trend, but it is a solid step forward. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 20, 2016
3/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "Like a great rock guitarist Wan knows his instrument, especially in those incredibly tense moments when a pitch perfect sustained note holds attention until the slam of a power-chord-jump-scare. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

Posted Jun 11, 2016
3.5/5 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) "There is a lot to love and admire in The Hateful Eight. Yet at 187 minutes it proves Tarantino's tendency for excess is a weakness that needs to be worked upon. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 11, 2016
4/5 88% The Big Short (2015) "Rare is that beast that will makes its audience laugh, rage, and shock right up the end credits, and then make you think deeply about it all afterwards. " ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
Posted Jun 11, 2016
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 60% 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

Posted Jan 20, 2016

Posted Dec 4, 2015
3/5 43% 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 39% 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

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
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 Sep 21, 2015
4/5 94% 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

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
