Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018)

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

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald lacks the sense of magic and mystery Rowling’s wizarding world has been noted for since its inception, and not even the divine trinity of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger would be powerful enough to make me believe watching this sequel could be anything close to worthwhile.

Widows (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 14th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The final scenes of Widows have a haunting truthfulness that left me both shattered and hopeful in the exact same breath, the austere closing image a quiet plea for forgiveness, friendship and companionship that’s nothing short of flawless.

The Meg (2018) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 14th, 2018 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

I like The Meg. I enjoy watching Jason Statham and his ragtag team of charming eccentrics battle their megalodon to the death. An unabashedly silly movie, Jon Turteltaub’s crazy little giant shark action spectacular almost can’t help but make me smile.

Boy Erased (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 12th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

But for whatever reason Edgerton loses his way trying to adapt Boy Erased, and while numerous individual elements soar, and while his handling of actors remains close to perfect, the various pieces of this story never fit together as succinctly or as comfortably as they by all accounts should have.

The Grinch (2018)

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

Maybe my heart needs to grow a size or two, but this newest take on the Dr. Seuss classic The Grinch ended up being a pre-Thanksgiving present I honestly wish I’d never taken the time to open.

Outlaw King (2018)

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

Outlaw King might not be Mackenzie’s finest hour behind the camera, but he’s still just too skilled a filmmaker to craft a motion picture that’s not at least somewhat worthwhile.

Wildlife (2018)

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

Wildlife is a quiet, introspective marvel that only grows in lasting resonance the further away I get from it, the lasting imprint it has made upon my psyche one I’m going to treasure for some time to come.
