Love, Simon (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

This coming of age story of friendship, family, sexuality and romance is a merry one, and while its insights might not be new, the fact they’re so matter-of-fact certainly is.

The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Roberts treats the material with intelligence and respect, allowing his actors the opportunity to craft flawed, deeply human characters who believably do everything they can to selflessly ensure their loved ones have a chance to survive the night. Make no mistake, The Strangers: Prey at Night got under my skin.

Tomb Raider is a total kick in the pants and I had a terrific time watching it.

Gringo (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 9th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

A freewheeling crime and caper comedy of errors that gets more violently rambunctious as it goes along, Gringo is an elaborate shell game where it’s impossible to know which hat the walnut is under.

A Wrinkle in Time (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 8th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

A Wrinkle in Time might not be as magnificent as L’Engle’s novel (and I can’t say I expected it to be), but even so DuVernay’s adaptation is still a spellbinding family-friendly adventure worth venturing out to see.

Midnighters (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 2nd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

There is a nascent nasty streak running through Midnighters that’s as hard-boiled as it is cutthroat, and it’s easy to imagine golden age stars of yesterday like Dana Andrews, Ida Lupino, Gloria Grahame or Richard Widmark in any of the central roles the two Ramsay bothers have created to reside within this particular moralistic cinematic quagmire.

Red Sparrow (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 2nd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Red Sparrow likely won’t jump start a new franchise, the ugly, harshly repugnant nature of things not going to sit well with a great many members of the audience, yet I still find I liked it all the same. This is a thriller I’ll be thinking about for some time to come, and I have this sneaky suspicion I’m going to be taking a second look at it sooner rather than later.

Annihilation (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 23rd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Allowing Portman the freedom to deliver a performance that shifts and evolves like the landscape she is investigating, Annihilation is a piece of science fiction cinematic wonderment I’ll have trouble forgetting, it’s ultimate destination one of self-inflicted humanistic absolution worthy of additional examination.
