Band Aid (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

[Having] us walk the same mile they do in shoes they themselves are wearing is a therapeutically evocative means to an exceedingly profound end, Band Aid hitting so many right notes any false ones it might inadvertently strike are lost in a symphony of reflective magnificence I could listen to for days on end with no hesitation whatsoever.

The Beguiled (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Sofia Coppola’s (Somewhere, Lost in Translation) take on The Beguiled is a decidedly feminist, unnervingly funny foray into Southern Gothic terrors that’s as exquisitely made as it is oddly problematic.

Despicable Me 3 (2017)

Despicable Me 3 is easily the least interesting film in the trilogy, the fact all involved are having such difficulty coming up with many original ideas speaking volumes.

“Band Aid” – Interview with Zoe Lister-Jones

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 28th, 2017 - Film Festivals Interviews

“I think in order to try and push back against some of those double standards you have to create opportunities for women in departments where they’re rarely given them. I also knew that, as a woman, there’s a part of me that liked the idea of surrounding myself with other women for this first directorial effort.”

Baby Driver (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 27th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Baby Driver might not live entirely up to the hype, but that doesn’t make it any less wonderful, Wright once again showing he’s a fearless genre-busting directorial wunderkind who’s creative gas tank overflows in originality.

Elliott nails every scene. It’s a superlative turn, and I’m hard-pressed to think of another actor who could have brought the same sort of lived-in gravitas to the role.

Transformers: The Last Knight (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 20th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

[If] there are any more entries like Transformers: The Last Knight than the end for this series can’t come quick enough, and maybe it would be for the best if Optimus Prime and his Autobots gave up on the human race and left us to destroy ourselves in relative peace and quiet.
