Blackbird (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 18th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

As excellent as the performances might be and as competent as the filmmaking undeniably is, this story never rang true to me, and I can’t help but believe that even under the best of viewing conditions Blackbird would have left me frustratingly cold.

Antebellum is noticeably striking in several ways, but it’s also sickening and disheartening in so many more.

The Prey (2018)

Henderson and his crack stunt team choreograph some exquisite chase-escape-fight-flight sequences, not the least of which is a suitably chaotic showdown in a secluded jungle village.

Mulan becomes a story of embracing one’s true identity and the innate power that comes along with doing that, this simple conceit the crucial through-line around which the entire plot emphatically revolves.

Sherlock Holmes (2009) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 1st, 2020 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Sherlock Holmes is one of Guy Ritchie’s better movies and is astonishingly easy to watch multiple times. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are a terrific team, while the comedy, mystery and action elements meld rather nicely for the majority of the picture’s 128-minute running time.

Z (2019) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 1st, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

For audiences eager for a genre throwback reminiscent of similarly themed efforts from the 1980s, Z more than fits the bill.
