Hell or High Water (2016)

"A modern-day set crime western that delves into the themes of right, wrong, law and capitalism with a righteous heart that pulsates within the grey of a morality tale where the pursuit of money turns good men bad." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)

"An almost rhythmic foray of kicks, punches and gunfire provides soundtrack to an action thriller that while hardly original, is delightfully old school cool in its approach to anti-heroes vs baddies. " ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

The Meddler (2016)

"As written and directed by Scafaria and performed by Sarandon, The Meddler is charming, tug-the-heart engaging stuff, that's as authentic in its emotions as it's entertaining in its filmmaking. " ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)

"A look into how war can change the lives of not only those on the frontlines but those covering an everlasting conflict in a strange land as told by an authentic voice that's part funny, parts moving, and indeed parts frustrating" ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Keanu (2016)

"An over the top hit and miss of gags upon gags within an urban crime story that fails as both tribute and spoof. " ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Deepwater Horizon (2016)

"That anger, sadness and frustration felt throughout Deepwater Horizon is matched by excellent craft and skill in re-enacting this man-made disaster with an immersive, absorbing pull." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

"A thrilling shoot 'em up that rather effectively sets up its characters and the stakes at play to make for an action film where themes surrounding religion and violence don't distract, but deepen." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

The Confirmation (2016)

"Led by the terrific performances of Clive Owen and the continuously impressive Jaden Lieberher, The Confirmation is a father-son story of high emotional and spiritual value." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Captain Fantastic (2016)

"Credible, personable and utterly believable, Viggo Mortensen delivers one of his best performances as a father who has raised his children to combat against the world, but never be a part of it." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Sully (2016)

"With clear barriers between institutions of authority and the citizens they have sworn to serve and protect, Sully is a film that shows how the system can work when the right time comes." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

"Singer once brought an intimacy to the social political dimensions that often made the X-Men franchise the thinking man's superhero movie. Yet it is clear that the weight in the themes that come with ...Apocalypse has left Singer and his movie floundering." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

The Jungle Book (2016)

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"Its many ideas, plot-points and characters are expertly conceived, written and portrayed to make for a roller coaster of a superhero movie. " ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

The Nice Guys (2016)

"With his third stint as director, Black has found his niche in evoking great performances, and framing engrossing and entertaining stories. The conclusion of The Nice Guys hints at a sequel. Please let it happen." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016)

"It's one thing to create an R-rated soap box which to preach from, yet doing so in such a strong armed and contrived way wins neither applause nor credibility." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Ben-Hur (2016)

"While Ben-Hur presents itself as a Bible-epic spectacular, it instead succeeds as an intimate depiction of forgiveness gained through the rigours of faith." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Jason Bourne (2016)

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

"Snyder has brought a different edge to the superhero genre, one that questions what drives these men of steel and creatures of the night to do what they do and believe what they believe. There is something to admire in that." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

The Danish Girl (2015)

"Although handsomely made and admirably performed, The Danish Girl doesn't quite become the emotionally powerfully and socially important picture it clearly hoped to be." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

Steve Jobs (2015)

"A sleek, energetic, depth filled and riveting character drama that rather brilliantly delves into the disturbing faults and stubborn genius that was part and parcel of Jobs' character." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

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

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

War on Everyone (2016)

"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

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

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

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

The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

Deadpool (2016)

"A better, sharper, raunchier, and unapologetically entertaining movie experience that is up there with the best hard-core comic book movies." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

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

The Big Short (2015)

Alex & Eve (2015)

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

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

The Revenant (2015)

"A haunting, immersive and grizzly cinematic experience, The Revenant features Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu at the height of his filmmaking prowess, while an all-in Leonardo DiCaprio delivers the performance of a lifetime." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews

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

The Dressmaker (2016)

"Unabashedly blends genre and style as black comedy meets romantic drama and the elegant clashes with the grotesque, to make for a spirited and visually engaging romp of a movie." ‐Matt's Movie Reviews
