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

Even though it is widely unknown, Danny DeVito has actually built up a decent career as a director. He usually made comedies except 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 rather tedious watch but I’m not sure that DeVito should be blamed though.

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.

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

“Matilda es una película más divertida de lo que es verdaderamente recomendable. No hace algo malo en particular ni envía un mensaje negativo. Simplemente me da la impresión de que pudo ser una historia más entrañable y efectiva de no estar tan motivada por el resentimiento.” read more

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
