Delivery: The Beast Within (2014)

It’s when Delivery: The Beast Within moves into more conventional territory that it sadly loses a little bit of its charm.

A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 30th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

A Million Ways to Die in the West is a misbegotten, unfocused attempt at Western comedy that never gels like it potentially could have.

Maleficent (2014)

As beautiful as Maleficent is to look at, it is unfortunately an emotionally flat effort that feels cribbed together from a variety of superior sources.

Proxy (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 30th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Zack Parker’s Proxy movie is very good at pulling the rug right out from underneath you. Proxy isn’t what you think it is going to be, playing a game of bait and switch right at the halfway point that’s jarring and incredible.

Blended (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 23rd, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Blended is a mess, and as enjoyable as it may be in parts on the whole it’s still an exasperating misfire wasting its inherent plusses and attributes to an almost unforgivable degree.

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 23rd, 2014 - Movie Reviews

X-Men: Days of Future Past manages to take such a convoluted scenario and present it in ways that are easy to process and even more fun to digest. It treats its audience with intelligence and respect but doesn’t skimp on action pyrotechnics.

Godzilla (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 16th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Edwards has done the unthinkable, crafting a modern Godzilla that not only pays deft homage to the creature’s glorious past but also makes many of its closest impersonators feel hollow and misguided when stood up next to it.

Locke (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 16th, 2014 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

In many ways Locke is the thriller of the year, a real time, ticking clock masterwork of tension and suspense that’s as unrelenting and unmerciful as anything likely to see a release in all of 2014. In others, it is nothing more than a quickly paced melodrama of responsibility and regret, focusing entirely on a single character, the choices he has made and the price he is forced to pay when the bill for his self-centered actions come tragically due.

Neighbors (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 9th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

A comedy of errors, friendship and matrimonial love, Neighbors is a gross-out R-rated affair that still isn’t afraid to wear its heart on its sleeve.
