Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 19th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul comes agonizingly close to being unwatchable, this fourth entry in the series having virtually nothing of value to offer to any viewer of any age whatsoever.

Everything, Everything (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 19th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Fact Everything, Everything is so very good before it becomes so very bad might just make the film more dissatisfying, so much wasted potential turning my own cinematic immune system into a lethally cancerous nightmare of bitter frustration and dejected disappointment.

The Survivalist (2015)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 19th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Bleak, uncompromising and overflowing in dirty, lived-in tension, The Survivalist is a grand little opus that kept me mesmerized start to finish, its final moments a haunting bit of personalized hopeful madness where tragedy, heroism, regret and resilience coalesce into a single entity.

Alien: Covenant (2017)

Even if some of the horror beats are all too familiar, that doesn’t make the overarching narrative any less fascinating, Alien: Covenant continuing to prove that big things can indeed be born of small beginnings, and I for one am decidedly curious to discover where this story is going to go next.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword might go down swinging, but that means it does still go down, Excalibur’s magic sadly not near enough for Ritchie’s latest to win the day.

Snatched (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 12th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Snatched is a glorious showcase for Hawn, and while she’s not the focal point of this dopey silliness she’s still the one I couldn’t take my eyes off of, the actress’ return more than enough to make the matinee ticket price required to see this one an outright bargain.

The Wall (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 12th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

The Wall is a dark descent into a psychological battlefield where the line between victory and annihilation is precariously thin, the final images a haunting hunting ground of intimidation and butchery I’ll not soon forget.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 3rd, 2017 - Movie Reviews

I don’t think either Guardians of the Galaxy films are particularly great, but they are a heck of a lot of fun, Vol. 2 so overflowing in passionate imagination taking my eyes off of it for even a single second proved to be impossible. Gunn’s vision continues to be the most inspired of any director currently working inside of Marvel’s universe, and like a dancing Baby Groot I’m pretty sure at this point I’d jive right along to any beat he chooses to lay down next.
