Movie Critic Matt Atchity: They Are All Good This Weekend

Posted: Updated:

If you're looking for a good movie opening this weekend, Matt Atchity says you can't go wrong! He talked about seven new releases this weekend that are all "Certified Fresh"...which is the first time that's ever happened on our show. The first is "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

It's kinda this old school spy thriller and it's really exciting...this is an action spy movie in the vein of James Bond or Jason Bourne. Good for grown ups. Smart script. Critics love it."

Scarlett Johansson not only kicks butt in the new Captain America movie, she also scares audiences, including Matt Atchity, in the new thriller "Under the Skin". What's it about? Matt says the less you know going in, the better!

"What I will say is this is one of the scariest movies I've seen in years. There's a scene in this movie that is absolutely terrifying...critics are bringing up names like Kubrick and David Lynch...they (critics) love this one."

Steve Coogan is probably best known to American audiences for his role in the Oscar nominated flick "Philomena"...but he's a comedic superstar overseas thanks to his character "Alan Partridge". Critics say the big screen version of his TV persona delivers laughs, especially for Coogan's fans!

"It's that British humor where somebody just realizes they've said the worst thing possible and they react to it, there's a lot of that in this movie...I think the critics like it a little bit more than I do but it's a fun movie."

Matt also mentions four other movies that are "certified fresh " and worth seeing this weekend and beyond.

Matt Atchity is the editor in chief for the pop-culture website "Rotten Tomatoes." He also hosts a new show on Sirius XM called "Rotten Tomatoes Radio."

The weekly one hour call in show airs Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

‘Rotten Tomatoes TV Zone' is up now on the Rotten Tomatoes website.
