The LEGO Ninjago Movie (2017)

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

Like a great piece of sketch comedy, all of the numerous vignettes feeding the central storyline are so consistently amusing the fact The LEGO Ninjago Movie goes way beyond nonsensical into the realm of outright absurdity isn’t as big a problem as it might otherwise have been.

68 Kill (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 15th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

68 Kill never quite goes in the direction I was anticipating, the last third a bloodcurdling descent into revoltingly juvenile torture, madness and depravity the likes of which that had me disgusted and intrigued in just about equal measure.

American Assassin (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 15th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Gleefully Violent American Assassin a Jingoistic Waste of Time There’s a moment in American Assassin that’s perfect. The film’s villain, a renegade former U.S. Navy officer known only by his nickname “Ghost” and portrayed by John Carter and Lone Survivor star Taylor Kitsch, has captured clandestine CIA operative, and his former superior, Stan Hurley and […]

First They Killed My Father (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 15th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Angelina Jolie’s First They Killed My Father isn’t for the faint of heart. While lightness and love do enter the picture, mostly this adaptation of Ung’s best-selling 2000 memoir is an emotionally exhausting journey that strands the viewer in something akin to a constant state of shock.

Mother! (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 15th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Darren Aronofsky’s latest mind-bending, psychologically dense feature Mother! is an indescribable piece of lurid pulp fiction that has to be seen to be believed.

I’m ready to head back to Derry for the next chapter of this story right this second. The death lights are calling; floating into the theatre to give It a look an experience most won’t soon forget.

I Do…Until I Don’t (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 1st, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Bell is also unafraid to speak brutal, stark truths when the moment calls for them, finding humor in tragedy and pathos in merriment in ways that are continually inspiring. If I Do…Until I Don’t isn’t completely successful, that doesn’t mean it still isn’t without merit, and in the end becomes the type of small-scale independent comedy I could easily see myself warming up to more and more as time goes by.

Polina (2016)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 1st, 2017 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

The profound beauty of what happens during this last modern dance ballet encapsulates everything Müller and Preljocaj have been building towards flawlessly, ultimately making Polina the type of unexpected marvel that keeps me heading back to the theatre time and time again. I love this movie. More importantly, I cannot wait to see it again.

Unlocked (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 1st, 2017 - Movie Reviews

But Rapace is excellent as Alice, the original Lisbeth Salander bringing the same sort of energy, emotion and gravitas to Unlocked that she brought to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
