Arctic (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 15th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Arctic is a fine thriller that stuck with me long after it had come to an end, its existential exploration of humanity’s will to survive under the harshest of conditions a hypnotic cinematic sojourn I’d willingly go on again at a moment’s notice.

Donnybrook (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 15th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Donnybrook matters because it doesn’t hesitate to speak truth to power in ways that go from unpleasant to unbearable in the blink of an eye. It is a timely parable of life’s indignities that cuts right to the marrow, its pugilistic nightmares universal in their all-encompassing emotional magnitude.

Mega Time Squad is a lot of fun, this nutty little New Zealand effort a gonzo charmer I hope people take the time to see.

Alita: Battle Angel (2019)

Alita: Battle Angel has its own sense of purpose and moves with a cagily confident self-awareness that’s wonderful.

Isn’t It Romantic (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 13th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Isn’t It Romantic is pretty darn amusing, and if Strauss-Schulson and the writers don’t make quite as much out of their inventive scenario as they potentially could have, that doesn’t make what they have delivered any less enjoyable.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Chapter (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 7th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part might not be as awesome as its forerunner but that doesn’t make it any less worthwhile, this amusing follow-up an irreverent gem that even with a few minor misgivings I couldn’t help but enjoy.

What Men Want (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 7th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

What Men Want is a tone-deaf retread that rarely evokes a slight giggle let alone a full guffaw, the film so devoid of satirical insight or comedic inspiration it’s easy to wonder if the film was ever supposed to contain either trait to begin with.

Miss Bala (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 1st, 2019 - Movie Reviews

I’m not going to hate on Miss Bala. Rodriguez is great and I can easily imagine myself being perfectly content to give this one a second look when it’s streaming on Amazon or Netflix, available as a free selection OnDemand or after it begins making the rounds on Cable television. But it just as equally isn’t a thriller I’m going to make any plans to view again for that second time anytime soon.

Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018)

In retrospect, watching Dragon Ball Super: Broly wasn’t the greatest idea I’ve ever had.
