Why are this guys reviews unwatchable? Because this guy is a Jerk Ass. He is clearly suffering from narcissism and delusions of importance. He thinks we will actually enjoy just watching him and his opinions for 50 minutes (The Golden Compass review) when in fact we watch them to stare in awe at how much of a dickbag he is. He feels that he is the centre of the universe. We all do from time to time, but for this fellow it is constant. He was likely born with a pre-disposition to Narcisisstic tendencies and was only egged on by his parents who refused to see the bad of what they were doing when they told him to ignore the kids who were (Quite rightly) picking on him at school. They probably said he was better than them. His review of Watchmen is a huge example of his underlying idiocy. Despite stating outright that he knows nothing about comics, he still criticizes a film which is in every way so much like a comic book and so utterly close (Almost too close according to some, even) to its source material for being NOT LIKE A COMIC BOOK. He picks up on a cynical message in The Incredibles when in fact it was never supposed to be a lighthearted cartoon that kiddies could fall asleep to. It was a surprisingly complex, genuinely thought-provoking post-modernist study of the superhero genre formatted in a totally groundbreaking way so that both children and adults could enjoy it, albeit for entirely different reasons. And even then, the core theme is of family, which is by any means a good moral. I dislike most anime myself, but even I cannot see what the hell he's trying to prove in his Spirited Away review. The Lion King review was just a pile rubbish showing that he has no mental capacity for understanding the mindset of a child and that he is a hypocrite, given his Incredibles review. The fatal flaw of Confused Matthew reviews is that the man delivering them is simply so loathsome, so revolting in manner and so annoying that it is hard to sit through his long, LONG, reviews. He is the flaw. Dont watch his reviews, he's just looking for more ego-fuel.
