Films Reviewed: The Matrix Revolutions and Love Actually

Commentary: The works of Richard Curtis

Featurette: Behind the scenes of Love Actually

Regarding The Matrix Revolutions:

Matt: While I did like this, I felt a little cheated out of the film.  We waited six months for action that takes place 90% in the "real world".  However, the scenes in the matrix itself really did deliver.  We shall see if the franchise continues.  Three stars.

Aron: If this is supposed to be a futuristic society, why is everyone relying on bullets to save them?  It does end the story, but something more could have been done with this.  Still, it's worth three stars.

Average Rating: *** (out of four)

Regarding Love Actually:

Aron: Eighteen different performances; nine different relationships; and they're all wonderful!  More surprises to be had in this film than any in recent memory, and that Hugh Grant can cut a mean rug.  Four stars!

Matt: If this movie was a woman, I'd propose marriage to it in a heartbeat!  I don't think I've seen a wittier, joyous, heartfelt celebration about love and being in love!  Put it simply, it's practically perfect!  Four stars!

Average Rating: **** (out of four)

Commentary: The works of Richard Curtis, the screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones's Diary.  He has also worked extensively on British TV, creating such shows as "Black Adder" and "The Vicar of Dibley".
