CHE (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 25th, 2008 - Movie Reviews

It’s an epic film I think is only going to improve as time goes by, and as cinematic revolutions go Che ranks up there as one of the ambitious director’s crowning achievements.

Mamma Mia! (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 17th, 2008 - Movie Reviews

“When All is Said and Done,” the only thing that would make me happy is if a picture as bad as Mamma Mia! had the good fortune to meet a box office “Waterloo” befitting its loudly obnoxious crap-tacular style of storytelling ineptitude.

Tell No One (2006)

Tell No One is the type of thriller viewers won’t want to keep quiet about. In fact, if they have any sense they’re going to be screaming to see it again.

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 13th, 2008 - Movie Reviews

This new Hulk might have its moments and the character might still have his angry superpowers, but that doesn’t make the film anything close to incredible.

Iron Man (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 1st, 2008 - Movie Reviews

Not to say that this inaugural adventure of Iron Man soars very high, but it does get off the ground, and as far as first chapters in what is sure to be an ongoing story is concerned, at least for right now that’s going to have to be enough.

Volver (2006)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 17th, 2006 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Almodóvar has crafted an instant classic. Volver is miraculous, a joyous enterprise running the emotional gauntlet like no other melodrama I’ve seen in ages.

V for Vendetta (2005)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 17th, 2006 - Movie Reviews

V for Vendetta is a bold, unflinching portrait of a world viewers might not want to look at too closely. It is a place where the sights and sounds are so harsh and hard they make some cringe and weep for all they’ve suffered and lost.
