Demons (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 13th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

While fairly predictable and basic from a horror standpoint, and not without a small handful of narrative and technical hiccups, as a drama dealing with how friends and loved ones deal with issues relating to religion, faith and grief I found much of Demons absorbing.

The Foreigner (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 13th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Utilizing the talents of both Chan and Brosnan perfectly, if not for a sudden left turn into unrelentingly grim ultraviolence and torture during the final few minutes, The Foreigner proves to be a massively entertaining gem.

Happy Death Day (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 13th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

A colorful, exuberantly energetic riff on everything from Scream to Happy Birthday to Me to Let’s Scare Jessica to Death to Halloween to Black Christmas, Landon’s latest is a crisply intoxicating lark that’s a bloody good time. One of 2017’s most unforeseen gems, Happy Death Day is freewheeling bit of slasher craziness making it an amusing genre miracle worth celebrating.

By all means, see Marshall. Just make sure to learn more about the great man at its center as soon as possible after you exit the theatre.

Wish Upon (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 10th, 2017 - Blu-ray and DVD

Wish Upon still features a terrific ending that knocked my socks off a second time but the remaining majority portions equally still proved to be an almost unendurable slog. Even after giving it another chance, great final five minutes aside, there’s precious little here I can honestly recommend.

The Crucifixion (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 6th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

This is a tired, frustratingly banal piece of genre pulp fiction that even at only 91 minutes feels like it goes on for an eternity, and the only thing I wanted from The Crucifixion was for it to end so I could go do something else.

The Mountain Between Us (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 6th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Much like the plane crash that begins this particular tale, The Mountain Between Us bangs into the side of a metaphorical cliff leaving all kinds of wreckage in its wake, the fact any elements worth extolling the virtues of survived at all something of a minor miracle in and of itself.

Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 4th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

This is a worthy, thoughtful and intelligently composed sequel, and much like Scott’s original film Blade Runner 2049 is guaranteed to provoke passionately heated debate and discussion that will continue long into the foreseeable future.

Flatliners (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 1st, 2017 - Movie Reviews

This Flatliners makes all of the exact same mistakes as the original, stranding its talented and attractive cast in ways that grow increasingly ridiculous as things move towards a climax.
