Lola Versus (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 15th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Lola Versus comes up frustratingly short, making my recommending it as a worthwhile option for a night out at the local cinema a virtual impossibility.

Rock of Ages (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 15th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

But when you look at Cruise, when you see what he decides to bring to this ‘Nothin’ But A Good Time’ party, when you find yourself awestruck by his ability to mine places and corners of the human condition the rest of the picture seemingly has no interest in, you quickly realize Rock of Ages could be so much more than it is.

The Woman in the Fifth (2011)

The Woman in the Fifth is as coldly obtuse and emotionally distant as anything I’ve had the misfortune to come across this year.

Your Sister’s Sister (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 15th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Your Sister’s Sister has something universal to say about relationships, about the bonds between siblings, about how it is we choose to live our lives and the mysterious nature of the dreams, aspirations and demons that drive us forward.

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 8th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Madagascar 3, for all its chaos, for all its weirdly absurdist flights of fancy, still becomes the most relatable, dare I say the most human, of the trilogy, something I never would have expected before the movie started.

Paul Williams Still Alive (2011)

f Paul Williams Still Alive does feel a bit slight that has nothing to do with the man himself. A titanic figure in the music industry, he saunters through the film with a relaxed grace that’s mesmerizing.

Prometheus (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 8th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Who are we? Where do we come from? Where do we go from here? Are we alone in the universe? These are just a few of the questions Prometheus asks, the end product not so much reaching for answers as it is more interested in reigniting the cooling embers of an age-old debate.

“Safety Not Guaranteed” – Interview with Colin Trevorrow

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 7th, 2012 - Film Festivals Interviews

“Safety Not Guaranteed is personal. It is intimate. It is about the emotional needs the idea of time travel satisfies. I feel it is an honest movie that speaks to what people are going through in their everyday lives. It doesn’t feel manufactured.”
