7 Days in Entebbe (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

I just couldn’t connect emotionally to anything that was happening, and as marvelous as it all might look and sound, 7 Days in Entebbe ultimately proves to be a forgettable terrorism procedural I’d rather not have seen.

Love, Simon (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

This coming of age story of friendship, family, sexuality and romance is a merry one, and while its insights might not be new, the fact they’re so matter-of-fact certainly is.

The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Roberts treats the material with intelligence and respect, allowing his actors the opportunity to craft flawed, deeply human characters who believably do everything they can to selflessly ensure their loved ones have a chance to survive the night. Make no mistake, The Strangers: Prey at Night got under my skin.

Tomb Raider is a total kick in the pants and I had a terrific time watching it.

Gringo (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 9th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

A freewheeling crime and caper comedy of errors that gets more violently rambunctious as it goes along, Gringo is an elaborate shell game where it’s impossible to know which hat the walnut is under.

A Wrinkle in Time (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 8th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

A Wrinkle in Time might not be as magnificent as L’Engle’s novel (and I can’t say I expected it to be), but even so DuVernay’s adaptation is still a spellbinding family-friendly adventure worth venturing out to see.

Tom Jones (1963) – Criterion Collection

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 6th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Tom Jones is a magnificently entertaining motion picture, and while I’m not one to say it’s quite the masterpiece it was lauded as back in 1963, that does not mean it still isn’t an essential piece of cinema worthy of multiple looks.

The Sect (1991)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 4th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Look, a person going into The Sect should hopefully have a pretty good idea of what it is they are in for when they slip this Blu-ray into the player. Soalvi’s films are raw, chaotic, nonsensical and maliciously maniacal in ways that often defy belief.
