Meat Your Match

by Muddy Brilliant


After being too picky for Tinder, a woman is registered by her friend for the upcoming local speed dating event to get her back on the dating horse, with an uber on its way in an hour!

I liked the quirky charm on show in this film, with the would be lovers available for our lead to choose from all having some gut-busting red flags from terrible ties, through truckers, to scarcely believable hot dog costumes. The film of course played like a classic lesson in not judging a book by its cover, with chemistry and rapport developed nicely in the short running time.

Pacing was really well done, building to a satisfying conclusion and I liked that you took a fairly standard idea and went outside the box. Sound seemed a little raw, but I'm always careful to criticise there in case it was my setup, and I thought that some of the editing was a tad jumpy in terms of what I noticed from a technical POV. Definitely a film that could have only been made in New Zealand, but a very enjoyable one.

Story: 3.5/5
Technical: 2.5/5
Elements: 3/5
Overall: 3/5
