4/5 73% Snatch (2001) Snatch uses and abuses the template of its breakthrough predecessor, elevates it, and delivers an equal, if not better, version of a film we have all seen before, yet much better the second time around. ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

3.5/5 67% The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) Some religious punters may find it to be a bastardization of their and Lewis' theological core values, while secularists will find the whole Narnia concept to be nothing more than a shrewd recruiting campaign for Christianity.‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

2/5 21% Amelia (2009) What on the surface looks like a plush period piece with best picture aspirations, is actually a bland biopic of an otherwise interesting figure in Amelia.‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

3.5/5 72% Army of Darkness (1993) Containing less of the blood soaked insanity of the previous two instalments, Army of Darkness comes off as more of an adventure film with a horror element attached to it. ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
