Colette (2018)

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

If Colette doesn’t make my list as one of 2018’s best films, it’s still certainly deserving of being an honorable mention, this historical biography of one of the great writers of the 20th century a fascinating treatise on artistic, sexual and gender expression I’ll not soon forget.

Hell Fest (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 30th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While Hell Fest has its moments, while there is plenty here worthy of praise, none of that is strong enough to overlook the film’s more irritating missteps. Maybe I’ll change my mind later, but as of right now I just can’t do it.

Night School (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 28th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While there are some laughs, while a few solid dramatic moments are to be found, on the whole nothing ends up working, Night School a frustrating misfire that sadly proves to be a waste of time for almost everyone involved.

Smallfoot (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 28th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Smallfoot is just pleasing enough younger viewers will likely have a grand time watching Migo and his fellow yeti’s juvenile antics. While I didn’t like the movie, that doesn’t mean I can’t admit I’m not exactly in the prime age group it’s been designed to entertain.

Assassination Nation (2018)

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

It’s how all these various pieces fit together that makes Assassination Nation work as well as it does, and while Levinson doesn’t hit every target he aims at, the ones that strike the target end up right at the very center of the sadistically satirical bulls-eye.

The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

As slight as The House with a Clock in Its Walls might be, it’s just so much gosh darn fun its various shortcomings thankfully don’t add up to much, Roth finally making a motion picture I can heartily recommend with no reservations whatsoever.

Life Itself (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Life itself slams the viewer against the pavement time and time again almost as if doing so were an Olympic sport.

Little Italy (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

There’s no way I can come down too harshly on Petrie’s sugar-coated endeavor. While this movie won’t do for Roberts what the director’s Mystic Pizza helped do for her Oscar-winning aunt back in 1988, and while Little Italy won’t prove to be anywhere near as memorable in the long term as that fellow independently produced effort has proven to be, even with an extra large sampling of undercooked melodramatic hooey I find it difficult to find this slice of cheesy romance to be entirely inedible.

Lizzie (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While the line between fact and fiction remains hazy, Lizzie is a compelling drama of human desire, oppression, romance and regret I’ll not soon forget.
