Movie Critic Matt Atchity: Some Fun At The Movies

Posted: Updated:

If you're looking for a good movie this weekend, the critics suggest you don't sample any of this weekend's new releases. But Matt Atchity from Rotten Tomatoes thinks two of them are worth checking out.

"I would be in the minority that would give these positive reviews."

Kevin Costner plays an trained killer trying to get out of the business and reconnect with his family in "3 Days to Kill". Turns out critics are killing this one.

"They say that it tries to do the action and comedy and most of them say the comedy doesn't work. I liked it more than most of the critics did...I thought it was kind of fun."

"Pompeii" is a disaster movie centered around a big volcano that critics aren't exactly calling a disaster...but they say it is pretty bad.

"You got the first half of the movie setting up all these characters and then the second half they all get offed by the lava..I liked this movie. The critics mostly say it's too cheesy. I had a good time...but the critics don't like it."

Matt also says critics think "In Secret" is a been there seen that affair about a couple having an affair. Matt did not like it but it's the best reviewed movie of the new releases...and that's not saying much.

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.
