Here we tell you which movies you should see in the cinema and those to avoid.

The Beguiled (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Sofia Coppola’s (Somewhere, Lost in Translation) take on The Beguiled is a decidedly feminist, unnervingly funny foray into Southern Gothic terrors that’s as exquisitely made as it is oddly problematic.

Despicable Me 3 (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Despicable Me 3 is easily the least interesting film in the trilogy, the fact all involved are having such difficulty coming up with many original ideas speaking volumes.

Reset (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Reset works, there’s really nothing else to say, this ticking clock thriller a timely leap into the human abyss that proves once again a parent’s love for their child is as undying as it is also potentially unstoppable.

Baby Driver (2017)

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

Baby Driver might not live entirely up to the hype, but that doesn’t make it any less wonderful, Wright once again showing he’s a fearless genre-busting directorial wunderkind who’s creative gas tank overflows in originality.

The Hero (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 23rd, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Elliott nails every scene. It’s a superlative turn, and I’m hard-pressed to think of another actor who could have brought the same sort of lived-in gravitas to the role.

Transformers: The Last Knight (2017)

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

[If] there are any more entries like Transformers: The Last Knight than the end for this series can’t come quick enough, and maybe it would be for the best if Optimus Prime and his Autobots gave up on the human race and left us to destroy ourselves in relative peace and quiet.

The Book of Henry (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 16th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

The Book of Henry has issues, big ones, but subject matter I do not believe is one of them, the emotional richness flowing through these intergenerational familial revelations ones I continually responded to no matter how upsetting and uncomfortable the story itself might oftentimes be.

Cars 3 (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 16th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

[Just] because Cars 3 is unlikely to win any awards or be remembered as one of the year’s great animated features doesn’t make it any less entertaining. Lightning’s return to the motor speedway is worthy of appreciation, the film’s eventual victory as unexpected as it is absolute.

It Comes At Night (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 9th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

It Comes At Night is anchored in a nihilistic fatalism that’s painfully catastrophic. It’s a downbeat eulogy to a story that’s been heading in that direction right from its opening image, those anticipating something different likely to walk away afterward scratching their head wondering what it was they just experienced.
