In the Heights (2021)

In the Heights is an epic celebration of humanity I’ll be thinking about for the remainder of 2021.

Spirit Untamed (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 4th, 2021 - Movie Reviews

Spirit Untamed is a lot easier to respect than it is to enjoy, and unlike its predecessor, this isn’t a piece of feel-good animation I’m likely to revisit anytime soon.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 3rd, 2021 - Movie Reviews

This third trip into the horrifying unknown with Ed and Lorraine Warren is a tedious bit of supernatural déjà vu, all of which has me starting to wonder if maybe it’s time for this series to give up the ghost and call it a day.

Cruella (2021)

Cruella is a heck of a lot of fun, and even at 134-minutes it still managed to keep my full attention for the most of its epic running time.

A Quiet Place Part II (2020)

Writer and director John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Part II hits the ground running, quickly reminding viewers how Evelyn and her children survived as well as the stakes involved if any of them takes a single misplaced step.

The Retreat (2021)

The Retreat is another refresher on the cinematic rule that taking a holiday break at a secluded cabin in the woods is never a good idea. Awful things are bound to happen.

The Djinn (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 13th, 2021 - Movie Reviews

I cannot say The Djinn did much for me. Its malevolent spell sadly doesn’t last, and if I had one wish for Charbonier and Powell, it’s that for the next magic trick they conjure up to be something a bit more imaginatively unique.

Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 13th, 2021 - Movie Reviews

For all the talk that Spiral was going to take things in a new direction, even with A-list stars like Rock and Jackson on hand for the ride this film still follows a template so similar to the original series it ends up being less of a spin-off or a reboot and more a random ninth entry in the franchise.

Wrath of Man (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 7th, 2021 - Movie Reviews

Wrath of Man is an ambitious head-scratcher, and whether that’s a recommendable compliment or an indictable offense I leave it up to you to decide.
