Operation Finale (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 29th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While likely not the breakneck thriller the ads and trailers may have promised, Operation Finale is nonetheless a fascinating drama that recounts a piece of lesser known history that should never, ever be forgotten.

The Happytime Murders (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 24th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

If this is how Henson intends to get the R-rated side of his career started, there’s little about The Happytime Murders that’s sensational, less that’s inspirational and almost nothing that’s celebrational, making closing the curtain on this bit of comedic mayhem especially easy to do.

Puzzle (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 17th, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

A rare starring role for Macdonald, the emotionally lithe Puzzle is a fantastic showcase for the veteran character actress. She’s dazzling as Agnes and underplays her part magnificently, allowing all of the delicate nuances of Oren Moverman and Polly Mann’s screenplay to come to heartbreakingly brittle life with astonishing ease.

Slender Man is nothing more than a forgettable disappointment, Knudsen’s creation deserving of a better cinematic debut than this sadly turns out to be.

McQueen (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Bonhôte and Ettedgui’s documentary is superb, McQueen overflowing in insight, human emotion and edifying moments that are universal in their intimately visceral appeal. It showcases an extraordinary and imaginative talent battling against the darkness lurking within his psyche while at the same time pushing the boundary of what the high fashion world was ready to endure.

The Meg (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The Meg was a goofily enjoyable seafaring creature feature that kept a smile pleasantly planted firmly upon my face. As Saturday matinee fair is concerned, this is one B-grade bit of shark attack silliness I’d happily see again.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2018 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

The simple truth is that there is more happening inside of The Miseducation of Cameron Post than initially meets the eye, its ability to tackle so many varying thematic ideas with such appealingly awkward élan incredible…Akhavan has delivered one of the best films I’ll see in 2018, and I have a sneaky suspicion this is one teenage drama I’m going to be waxing poetic about for many years to come.

Our House (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Even with all its faults I still liked Our House just enough that I’d happily watch it again, the Lightman family’s paranormal exploits just interesting enough to make going to a matinee screening or renting it via VOD moderately worthwhile.
