Movie of the Month - Matilda Movie Review

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

The story of a wonderful little girl, who happens to be a genius, and her wonderful teacher vs. the worst parents ever and the worst school principal imaginable. (IMDB)


This movie is one of my absolute favorites from childhood. I remember thinking that if I just read as much as Matilda did I would be able to move things with my mind too! There’s no better movie out there to get kids motivated to read! The entire cast in this movie is phenomenal. Each actor brings their character to life in the most vivid and memorable ways. When trying to think of the best Book of the Month to go with our very first read-a-thon, I couldn’t imagine anything better!

Rating: 10/10


Although I have watched this movie countless times, there has always been something new that I have noticed each time. This is definitely a classic that I believe will be remembered for a very long time.

Rating: 8/10
