Paddington 2 (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 24th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Paddington 2 is still the best film I’ve watched in 2018. Stop. Period. End of sentence.

Phantom Thread (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 15th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Phantom Thread is a triumph for Paul Thomas Anderson and a motion picture I’m sure to be returning to multiple times in the very near future. Magnificent.

Father Figures (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 9th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Nope. Still doesn’t work for me. I wanted to give Father Figures a second chance mainly because, even if I didn’t particularly like the movie during my first viewing, I still respected its ambition quite a lot. But the comedy just doesn’t work, undercutting itself and demolishing its potential to entertain at seemingly every turn. What a waste.

The Church (1989)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 31st, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Michele Soalvi’s The Church is absolutely bonkers. Not so much scary as it is gruesomely unhinged, this paranormal possession story of damnation and selfless sacrifice is impossible to forget and even more difficult for genre fanatics to resist.

Faces Places (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 27th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

I can’t say Faces Places was the best documentary I saw in 2017, but it is without a doubt one of the more giddily and exuberantly enjoyable motion pictures I’ve had the pleasure to watch in quite some time.

Tom Jones (1963) – Criterion Collection

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 6th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Tom Jones is a magnificently entertaining motion picture, and while I’m not one to say it’s quite the masterpiece it was lauded as back in 1963, that does not mean it still isn’t an essential piece of cinema worthy of multiple looks.

The Sect (1991)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 4th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Look, a person going into The Sect should hopefully have a pretty good idea of what it is they are in for when they slip this Blu-ray into the player. Soalvi’s films are raw, chaotic, nonsensical and maliciously maniacal in ways that often defy belief.

Elevator to the Gallows (1958) – Criterion Collection

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 6th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Elevator to the Gallows is a movie that the word “masterpiece” was invented for.
