Shallow and Simple, Matilda Gets the Shape Right if Nothing Else

Zany, wacky kid fodder from the mid '90s. Adapted from a Roald Dahl book with just a little dash of modernization, it's technically faithful but spiritually thin. Director (and supporting star) Danny DeVito, never particularly known for his nuance, seems dedicated to reenacting every last one of the silly, cheesy moments but whiffs on the book's heartier aspects. In his defense, that does seem to be a difficult target to hit, as many of Dahl's other works have been failed similarly. Garishly colorful, with an over-active wardrobe and ridiculous effects work, it's precisely the kind of movie you'll want to throw on for the youngsters before leaving the room.

Fantastic Film For children

Matilda was one of those films that lived in my heart all of these years, because of it's great story perfect cast and pretty good directing from Danny DeVito.

The film tells us a simple story of unusual smart kid who was borne totally different from her own family, for example all her family are lazy and she is smart, they hate reading and only watch TV all the day while Matilda hates Television and loves reading. and the story continues a little bit interesting when she learns how to use her special powers to move things from distance without touching them.

To be honest till this day i still believe that no other kid could do the same amazing job as Mara Wilson who became audience sweetheart since her small role along side the late Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993). she is so sweet, charming, innocent and most important lovely.

There were a lot of unforgettable scenes such as the chocolate cake thief (little Brucey ) the first introduction to Miss. Trunchbull and the final fight with her.

Danny Devito was so adorable her as a director, actor and narrator. I just wished if the film was a little bit longer, but at the end it was an amazing movie.

Final rate:

8 out of 10

One of my childhood favorites growing up

Former child star and Mrs Doubtfire star Mara Wilson stars in this family fantasy where she plays the main charterer Matilda who isn't like much kids. She loves reading books and has telepathic powers. Her parents loathe her and she goes to school ran by a rough looking woman played by Imelda Staunton(who is so unrecognizable BTW)who happens to be the principal in her school. Matilda of course loves her teacher Miss Bumble(I think that was her surname)played by Bicentennial Man's Embeth Davidz who is hiding a secret from Matilda? Turns out she is the daughter of Imelda Staunton's character and like Matilda her stepmom(which was Staunton's character BTW) didn't love Miss Bumble and she felt the same way like Matilda with her family.

So will Matilda escape the clutches of her bad parents?

Overall I always enjoyed this film. Its funny,a bit silly but overall it was definitely a hit when I was growing up.

6/10
