Matt Soergel

Matt Soergel started reviewing movies for the Florida Times-Union in 1994, the year of Forrest Gump vs. Pulp Fiction. For years before that he often insisted that his friends (and then later, his wife) just had to see this particular movie or just had to hold still so they could listen to these particular few seconds of this particular song. It was quite important to him. He's won some statewide awards for criticism since, but he's most proud of the reader who told him how his pan of The Mummy Returns, in which he listed all the reasons why he hated it, persuaded her that she would love the movie. And she did love it. When not watching movies, he's either surfing, strumming on a guitar or playing his ukulele, which is so a real musical instrument.
