Smallfoot (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 28th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Smallfoot is just pleasing enough younger viewers will likely have a grand time watching Migo and his fellow yeti’s juvenile antics. While I didn’t like the movie, that doesn’t mean I can’t admit I’m not exactly in the prime age group it’s been designed to entertain.

Scream for Help (1984)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 26th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

The insanity of Scream for Help cannot be undersold. Michael Winner’s head-scratching teenage coming-of-age slasher film is a skuzzy Nancy Drew mystery overflowing in easygoing sleaze. It’s freakishly entertaining, likely for all of the wrong reasons, and I’m sort of flabbergasted I’ve never watched this wonderfully schlocky misfire until now.

Ocean’s Eight (2018) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 26th, 2018 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

In many ways Ocean’s Eight is slowly climbing up my list of 2018 favorites. I just really love watching it, the joy it makes me feel when it comes to an end almost indescribable.

Assassination Nation (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 23rd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

It’s how all these various pieces fit together that makes Assassination Nation work as well as it does, and while Levinson doesn’t hit every target he aims at, the ones that strike the target end up right at the very center of the sadistically satirical bulls-eye.

The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

As slight as The House with a Clock in Its Walls might be, it’s just so much gosh darn fun its various shortcomings thankfully don’t add up to much, Roth finally making a motion picture I can heartily recommend with no reservations whatsoever.

Life Itself (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Life itself slams the viewer against the pavement time and time again almost as if doing so were an Olympic sport.

Little Italy (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

There’s no way I can come down too harshly on Petrie’s sugar-coated endeavor. While this movie won’t do for Roberts what the director’s Mystic Pizza helped do for her Oscar-winning aunt back in 1988, and while Little Italy won’t prove to be anywhere near as memorable in the long term as that fellow independently produced effort has proven to be, even with an extra large sampling of undercooked melodramatic hooey I find it difficult to find this slice of cheesy romance to be entirely inedible.

Lizzie (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While the line between fact and fiction remains hazy, Lizzie is a compelling drama of human desire, oppression, romance and regret I’ll not soon forget.
