On Chesil Beach (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 25th, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

But On Chesil Beach frustratingly can’t build on this gobsmack of a revelation, Cooke muting the inherent emotional explosiveness of Florence and Edward’s journey to the point it disappears just at the point it needed to be building to a crescendo.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

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

While nowhere near the superlative achievement The Force Awakens, Rogue One and The Last Jedi proved to be, this latest anthology effort is nonetheless easy to enjoy, the joyful exuberance of Solo: A Star Wars Story difficult to rebel against.

Deadpool 2 (2018)

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

What I will say is that, much like the first film, I’m totally fine with Deadpool 2, readily enjoying much of it. But that still doesn’t mean I plan on revisiting this sequel anytime soon.

Breaking In (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

I found Breaking In to be spectacularly difficult to sit through, it’s overall mediocrity a continual source of frustration that I kept feeling long after the film itself had come to its anemically dispiriting end.

Life of the Party (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Even if Life of the Party isn’t a film I’m going to be thinking about much longer than the time it takes to write this review, it still makes me feel good enough that I’m happy I gave it a look, the overall positivity with which Deanna chooses to live her life undeniably infectious.

RBG (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 3rd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Make no mistake, RBG is massively enjoyable, watching Justice Ginsburg live her best life as joyous a spectacle as anything I’ll likely have the pleasure to sit through this year.

Tully (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 3rd, 2018 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Tully builds to a shattering climax that brought a cascade of tears to my eyes, Marlo’s destination as cathartic, and as gut-wrenching, as any I could have imagined it would be before the film began.

Backstabbing for Beginners (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While there’s no doubt as to where any of this is headed, getting to that conclusion still isn’t without its rewards, and thanks to Kingsley’s excellence Backstabbing for Beginners is a suitably intelligent procedural thriller I’m glad I took the time to watch.

The Endless (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The Endless goes places that are both eerily unexpected and emotionally affecting, the all-encompassing monstrous beauty of this spellbinding sci-fi thriller impossible to understate.
