The Art of Self-Defense (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 19th, 2019 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

The Art of Self-Defense is a strange little comedy I couldn’t have disliked even if I had wanted to try to do so, Stearns’ latest a gleeful bit of martial arts rebellion I’m excited to see again.

The Farewell (2019)

The Farewell is one of the best films of 2019. Heck, it might even be one of the best of the entire decade.

The Lion King (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 17th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

None of it mattered to me, and while I wanted to shrug my shoulders and whisper inaudibly, “Hakuna Matata,” as the end credits began their scrawl, the truth of the matter is that I felt no love for this The Lion King remake, it’s overall storytelling mediocrity a circle of never-ending disappointment I couldn’t wait to be finished with.

Crawl (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 12th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Crawl is an unpretentious creature-feature from The Hills Have Eyes and High Tension filmmaker Alexandre Aja that’s every bit of gnarly fun as its ludicrous premise makes one hope it is going to be.

Stuber (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 11th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Stuber is a fun little trip into the ridiculous, and while I’m not about to give this cinematic rideshare a five-star rating, it seems to me three out of four should be more than adequate.

Sword of Trust (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 11th, 2019 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Anchored by a superb performance from comedian, author, podcaster and essayist Maron and featuring wonderful supporting works by all three of his primary costars, especially a delightfully anarchic Watkins, Sword of Trust is a fast-paced O. Henry meets Mark Twain meets Tom Wolfe-like absurdist lark that sent me out of the theatre smiling.

Midsommar (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 3rd, 2019 - Movie Reviews

There is a lot to unpack where it comes to Midsommar, and a lot of it is definitely, a defiantly, worthy of additional dissection and debate.

Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 2nd, 2019 - Movie Reviews

The fun of Spider-Man: Far from Home is watching the younger members of its cast agreeably interact with one another, and if the actual heroic parts of the tale could have generated maybe a third of that same intoxicating ebullience maybe I’d have found this latest MCU effort to be a bit more memorable.

Euphoria (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 28th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Langseth lays her story out with a caring specificity that kept me wanting to learn where things would go next, and for my part I found the character-driven honesty of Euphoria difficult to resist.
