Suburbicon (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 27th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

But a couple of great scenes here and some solid performances there unfortunately do not make up for the fact so little of Suburbicon ends up resonating. The movie doesn’t work, and while I can respect the attempt that’s not near enough for me to recommend anyone out there waste their time giving Clooney’s latest a look.

Wonderstruck (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 27th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

The climactic third of this story had me sitting on the edge go my seat constantly pushing back tears, the last images a heartfelt celebration of perseverance and empathy I wanted to sit in my seat and revel in long after the screen faded to black. Wonderstruck is a goldmine of emotional purity, its cabinet of wonders one I cannot wait to open again as soon as I can.

The Florida Project (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 25th, 2017 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Never shying away from the stark, tragic truths always silently lurking in plain sight, there is something universal here that stops the heart right in its tracks, The Florida Project building to a single moment of selfless friendship that is as fantastical as it is breathtaking.

Geostorm (2017)

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

Anyone buying a ticket to Geostorm should hopefully know what they’re in for. This is a motion picture where Gerard Butler basically punches weather in the face, doing so with extreme prejudice.

Breathe (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 20th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

As sensational as Garfield and especially Foy are, as remarkable as Robin and Diana’s story undeniably is, there just wasn’t enough going on inside Breathe to keep my attention for a full two hours; a disappointing turn of events to say the least.

Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 20th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

My love for Winnie-the-Pooh and his many adventures knows no limitations; my admiration of Goodbye Christopher Robin almost equally as strong. Silly old bear, indeed.

Only the Brave (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 20th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Only the Brave is a seriously magnificent motion picture, one I’m almost certain to still be talking about as the year inches closer to its conclusion.

The Snowman (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 20th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Ineptly plotted, directed with far less confidence or authority than we’ve come to expect from Alfredson and wasting a crackerjack talent pool of actors and craftspeople that’s simply staggering, The Snowman is a frigid waste of time the less said about the better.

Demons (2017)

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

While fairly predictable and basic from a horror standpoint, and not without a small handful of narrative and technical hiccups, as a drama dealing with how friends and loved ones deal with issues relating to religion, faith and grief I found much of Demons absorbing.
