As a child, I watched many family/children's films. Many of said films ranged from great to awful, with many being simply too mediocre to remember in my adulthood. Matilda is one of those movies that actually helped construct my childhood and transform me into who I am as a human being.

I admit to having not read Roald Dahl's novel, though I plan to. While I can't judge this as an ada... read more

Deliciously dark; much better than the book!

I absolutely love this movie. It is dark, funny, charming and brooding, and captures the essence of the book perfectly. By the way, I love the book as well, and consider Roald Dahl one of the finest authors of children's books, look at the BFG for evidence. The whole film is beautifully photographed, looking lush and crisp. Mara Wilson gives a very spirited performance as Matilda. Sure she's not t... read more

Even though it is widely unknown, Danny DeVito has actually built up a decent career as a director. He usually made comedies expect for ‘Hoffa’ and this flick which belongs to the family genre. Even though this movie is usually appreciated if only considering the ratings on IMDB and Listal, I thought it was a pretty tedious watch. I’m not sure that DeVito should be blamed though. I guess I... read more

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1036 movies items)

" Story of a wonderful little girl, named Matilda who happens to be a genius, and her wonderful teacher vs. the worst parents ever and the worst school principal imaginable. Cute, adorable, and surprisingly dark at times, it was one of many books made by Roald Dahl, through out the 90’s. Despite, the film being liked by critics, with the movie being praised for it’s adaptation of the book, direction by Danny DeVito, and acting by Mara Wilson, with the movie becoming a cult movie classic.

“I absolutely love this movie. It is dark, funny, charming and brooding, and captures the essence of the book perfectly.

The whole film is beautifully photographed, looking lush and crisp. Mara Wilson gives a very spirited performance as Matilda. Sure she's not the same as Quentin Blake's illustrations, but I preferred the changes. Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman were great as the parents. As for Miss Honey, I have never seen Embeth Davidtz look so lovely, and that's the truth. Indisputetably, the acting honours go to Pam Ferris as the tyrannical Miss Trunchball. I have never seen that side of Pam Ferris, and in real life, she is not as ugly as they made he” read more

"Matilda's parents, are probably not going to win any parent of the year awards any time soon. Come to think of it, Miss Trunchbull won't be getting the teacher of the year award, any time soon, either."
