In This Corner of the World (2016)-movie-review

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 18th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Perfectly animated, emotionally pure, In This Corner of the World is an outright marvel, watching it come to life as it does with such authentically subtle exactitude an extraordinary achievement to be sure.

Logan Lucky (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 18th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Logan Lucky is as giant an August surprise as anything I ever could have hoped for, the delight I felt watching only exceeded by the knowledge audiences were going to get to experience all this jovial throwback ebullience for themselves starting this weekend.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 18th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

I left the theatre. What could have been an interesting foray into a new world of killers, bodyguards and international enforcement agents instead proves to be a mindless piece of fluff and not much else, and for a story about lethal marksmen who never miss their shot The Hitman’s Bodyguard up being well wide of the target the majority of the time.

Annabelle: Creation (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 11th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Much like last year’s Ouija: Origin of Evil was a prequel that proved to be a monumentally massive improvement over its anemic low budget horror predecessor Ouija, Annabelle: Creation somehow, some way bucks the odds and proves to be a superior motion picture to its woeful 2014 precursor Annabelle.

The Glass Castle (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 11th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

There’s little room for the characters to breathe, their collective journeys never evolving in ways that feel authentic or genuine. Jeannette’s transitions happen because the story requires them to, not because they feel organic to her own personal story, diluting the inherent power of her resilient perseverance to achieve by a substantial margin.

Landline (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 11th, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Landline gets what makes people tick, doesn’t shy from reveling in the good, bad and ugly as well as all the gradations hiding in the various grey areas. It’s very good, and as such ends up being a movie I can’t help but hope finds its audience.

Step (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 11th, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

For these young women, Step is life, but it is also something to strive for, to believe in and to use as a means to make the leap into the unknown, hopefully to even greater achievements. For the viewer, Step is a wonder, and for the life of me I now can’t imagine a world where this documentary does not exist.

The Dark Tower (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 4th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

There’s no cohesion, no rationale why one event that transpires leads to the one directly following it. It’s a big, monstrous waste of time, energy, resources and talent, The Dark Tower a forgettable misfire that does injustice to King’s source material and sadly belongs in the bargain bin collecting dust.

Detroit (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 4th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Bigelow brings Detroit home, showing how this historical scar on the American Dream deserves to be far more than an abhorrent footnote. Make no mistake, there might not be a more important motion picture released this year.
