Last Christmas (2019)

Last Christmas has the potential to make a lasting imprint with a lot of viewers, and even if my heart wasn’t always into it that doesn’t mean I’m ready to dismiss the film entirely.

Pain and Glory (2019)

Pain and Glory is one of Almodóvar’s most personal storytelling endeavors. It is also one of his best.

While I didn’t like Playing with Fire the kids in the audience did. Maybe that’s enough.

Harriet (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 1st, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Harriet is more than a dramatic history lesson. It is a piece of filmmaking excellence I am almost certain to revisit, and a film I’m fairly positive I’ll appreciate even more once I have done so.

Waititi balances the horrifying and the hysterical with relative ease.

Paradise Hills (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 1st, 2019 - Movie Reviews

While there’s the high probability that Paradise Hills will grow on me on re-watch, as magnificent as the visual elements are and as strong as the social commentary might be, that’s not near enough to overcome the places where this motion picture falls disappointingly flat.

Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

Terminator: Dark Fate is a well-made action film many are going to enjoy quite a bit, which likely means Sarah Connor will be back busting cybernetic heads before any of us know it.

Countdown (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 25th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

The only clock I cared about while watching the movie was my internal one, Countdown wasting so much of my time I couldn’t wait for the counter to hit zero so I could exit the theatre and go do something else.

The Kill Team (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 25th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

I admired a lot of what Krauss was attempting, and I certainly think his skills as a filmmaker are beyond reproach. But none of that means I also feel his debut The Kill List is essential, and even if this heinous historical event is worthy of exploration the director already did that back in 2013 with his stunning documentary. I can’t help but feel people should just watch that instead.
