The Boss Baby (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 31st, 2017 - Movie Reviews

The Boss Baby is hardly terrible. It has moments of wit and ingenuity that are undeniably impressive, and with Baldwin reveling in playing a character so obviously in his wheelhouse I can’t say the picture is entirely devoid of laughs. That being so, I still did not enjoy watching this motion picture and, more to the point, I can’t imagine many others doing enthusiastic backflips over it. It just isn’t all that good, and honestly I don’t have anything additional I feel like adding.

Ghost in the Shell (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 31st, 2017 - Movie Reviews

But there are so many boneheaded creative mistakes watching them smack one into the other with such ghastly consistency frankly boggles the mind. Ghost in the Shell is a stupefying failure that’s close to unforgivable, its apparent inability to understand what it gets wrong and why a perplexing mystery even Major herself wouldn’t be able to solve.

The Zookeeper’s Wife (2017)

The Zookeeper’s Wife is excellent, the Zabinski’s story an important lesson in heroism that proves to be as entertainingly compelling as it is fascinatingly essential.

“T2 Trainspottting” – Interview with Danny Boyle

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 24th, 2017 - Interviews

“I think it’s the voice. The voices. It’s why we started. These voices that you never hear from normally in movies. They’re unacceptable to conventional mainstream society and yet they’re crucial to us understanding the margins.”

Life (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 24th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

This screenplay is shockingly dumb, there’s just no other way to put it, Life more akin to a low budget ‘80s Roger Corman schlock sci-fi knockoff than it comes close to resembling a Ridley Scott or John Carpenter genre classic.

T2 Trainspotting is a fine reunion, and while the punk portion might not be as raucous as it once was, that doesn’t mean these four men have forgotten how to rock one tiny little bit.

Wolves (2016)

Wolves shoots way too many air balls, its inability to find the basket making this dramatic teenage hoop dream nothing short of an emotionally deflated basketball nightmare.
