The Intouchables (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 1st, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

The Intouchables balances precipitously at the edge of melodramatic excess yet somehow never falls over into that particular ravine.

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 1st, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While not without faults, this feminist take on the classic Grimm tale is undeniably bewitching, and of 2012’s dueling adaptations, both of which ended up worthy of my attention, Snow White and the Huntsman is the fairest of the duo and the one I look forward to revisiting in the future.

Men in Black 3 (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 25th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

What is shocking is just how entertaining Men in Black 3 turns out to be, and even though as sequels go it’s highly unnecessary, that didn’t make the smile on my face after watching it invisible.

Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 25th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Moonrise Kingdom has the potential to be a movie I’ll be pondering, mulling over and thinking about for the remainder of 2012. When all is said and done it might even enter into the upper echelon of the Wes Anderson canon.

Battleship (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Battleship is pure cheese, and while that doesn’t make it good that also doesn’t make it a disaster, and while the proceedings are certainly waterlogged beyond repair that doesn’t mean the vessel itself is in danger of sinking.

Bernie (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Bernie is simply unlike anything else out there making its way through the multiplexes right now. It is unique and tells a story many have never heard about with intelligence, style and panache.

The Dictator (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While not great satire, The Dictator is still pretty good, and it doesn’t take a despot to urge those partial to this type of humor to take a chance on the comedy and buy a matinee ticket.

What to Expect When You’re Expecting (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

I don’t know what I expected walking into What to Expect When You’re Expecting, but walking out I did know what I’d gotten, this comedic misfire an unfortunate waste of time I’d rather not have seen in the first place.

The Cup (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The Cup feels suffocated, almost as if the director is refusing to allow any emotion, anything that could be construed as an authentic human characteristic to come about naturally.
