The Call of the Wild (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 20th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

The Call of the Wild proved to be an outdoor adventure worth going on, and I can’t help but think my 10-year-old self would have seen this in the theatre a good half-dozen times if my parents would have permitted me to do so.

The Lodge (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 20th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

The Lodge is powerfully haunting stuff, things building to a climactic turn of events that are as shocking as they are in some ways equally warranted.

Fantasy Island (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 18th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

The final third is a massive disaster that’s bewildering in its narrative ineptitude, and as I sat there in the theatre I was dumbfounded how those involved with Fantasy Island thought any of this was a going to play even reasonably well with a paying audience.

VFW (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 18th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

VFW is a cracking thriller, its pulse-pounding theatrics making this an agreeably bruising good time I loved every single gosh darn blood-soaked second of.

Downhill (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 14th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

I cannot get angry or feel let down by what Downhill is not (most obviously that it isn’t as deep or as profound as Force Majeure was). I can only judge the film for what it actually is, and on that front I think Faxon and Rash have done a reasonably nice job.

Olympic Dreams (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 14th, 2020 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

The first narrative feature to be allowed to shoot inside the Olympic Athletes Village, Olympic Dreams is a strong, emotionally-pure indie drama that took my breath away.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 14th, 2020 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Portrait of a Lady on Fire is more than a historical romance. It is more than a feminist drama drawing a metaphorical line from the distant past to the here and now.

Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)

While Sonic the Hedgehog didn’t win me over, I sure as heck was never so annoyed that I regretted giving the film a look.

Birds of Prey (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 6th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Harley Quinn’s emancipation and the birth of a new group of female crimefighters is one I happily stand to applaud, and if this ragtag group’s adventures continue in the future trust I’ll be first in line to witness them firsthand.
