Molly’s Game (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 25th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

If Molly’s Game doesn’t quite have what would typically be considered a winning hand, it bluffs just well enough to still take the pot, proving that a pleasant smirk and a little underhanded double-dealing isn’t always as terrible a thing as it should be. Heck, sometimes it might even be construed as charming.

Downsizing (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 22nd, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Downsizing’s many issues outweigh its attributes so significantly I can’t help but feel like this will go down as one of the year’s most frustrating disappointments, and for a director as undeniably talented as Payne there’s nothing small about just how upsetting I find making a statement like that one to be.

Father Figures (2017)

But the real problem is that, other than a few random moments here and there, Father Figures just isn’t funny.

[If] Pitch Perfect 3 ends up being the Bellas’ a cappella swan song, for my part I can’t help but feel the entire group goes out on something of a satisfying high note.

Call Me by Your Name (2017)

Call Me by Your Name might not go anywhere unexpected, yet that doesn’t make getting to the destination any less of a joy, Guadagnino’s latest a marvel of truthful nuance worthy of a standing ovation.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle might not be a great movie, but sure as heck it’s an entertaining one, and unlike its forerunner this is one kid-friendly action spectacular I wouldn’t mind watching again.

Ferdinand (2017)

I’m just not bullish on Ferdinand, the finished product a minor disappointment I cannot imagine I will ever purposefully watch again.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 13th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Unlike the last film, The Last Jedi uses nostalgia and one’s knowledge of this universe against the viewer, ideas as to what can happen, who can and cannot survive and where things go from here as they head into the ninth and final chapter blown into smithereens like a fourth Death Star.
