Mirror Mirror (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 30th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Tarsem directs with confidence, and while Mirror Mirror isn’t the magical ride it maybe could have been to say I left the theatre with a spring to my step and feeling happily ever after was a real possibility wouldn’t be too far off the mark.

The Raid: Redemption (2011)

While the action choreography is impressive, emotionally I’m finding it difficult to care, The Raid: Redemption never quite connecting on anything more than a purely visceral level and nothing more.

Undefeated (2011)

Undefeated shows what real victory looks like, the scoreboard irrelevant as transforming bad decisions into good ones ends up being far more important than the final tally of wins and losses.

21 Jump Street (2012)

The only thing one needs to know about this cinematic remake of the 1980s television favorite 21 Jump Street is that it’s funny.

Case de mi Padre (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

I respected Casa de mi Padre far more than I enjoyed it, director and “SNL” veteran Matt Piedmont never striking the right balance between playing things straight while still wink-winking at the audience as if everyone knows just how absurd all of this is.

Jeff, Who Lives at Home (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The last moments speak to the concepts of family, brotherhood and marriage in a way that touched my heart and also tickled my funny bone, and while Jeff, Who Lives at Home isn’t perfect these precious final minutes were, and for my money that’s all that matters.

The Kid with a Bike (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The Kid with a Bike won’t be for everyone, and it certainly left me with lingering questions I’m mildly irritated weren’t even partially answered. But overall this drama is an emotionally exhilarating ride I’m still mulling over, and even more importantly it’s a film I’m certain to not soon forget.
