Little Women (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 23rd, 2019 - Movie Reviews

This Little Women kept me on my toes, and even though I’ve read Alcott’s novel multiple times and have watched Armstrong’s sublime adaptation on numerous occasions, I still felt like I was experiencing this tale for the first time while watching Gerwig’s film.

Uncut Gems (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 23rd, 2019 - Movie Reviews

There is nothing polite about brothers Benny Safdie and Josh Safdie’s newest hyper-adrenalized ticking clock drama Uncut Gems.

Cats (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 19th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Cats might be a mess, but it’s a one-of-a-kind incredibly memorable mess (for better and for worse), and for all I know that’s entirely by design.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

Maybe I’ll not feel so sad after I give The Rise of Skywalker a second look.

Black Christmas (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 14th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

But this new Black Christmas is a heck of a lot more than a talented filmmaker beating a socially-conscious drum. Takal has manufactured a monstrously entertaining horror riff that intelligent audiences of all backgrounds, races and genders will hopefully find just as much fun to watch as I did, this merry little not-really-a-remake remake a gleefully malevolent horror gift I’m happy I took the time to unwrap.

Rabid (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 14th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

This new Rabid definitely has bite, and while that it fails to draw any more blood than that produced by a pinprick is undeniably a problem, it’s not a big enough on that I can entirely dismiss what it is the filmmakers have done here.

Jumanji: The Next Level (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 12th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Jumanji: The Next Level continues a story begun way back in 1995 with wit, intelligence, imagination and creativity, and I’m honestly a little shocked to admit that I cannot wait to see where things go next.

The Aeronauts (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 11th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

The Aeronauts is a one-of-a-kind achievement, and for that reason alone here’s hoping audiences go give it a look.

Knives Out (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 27th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Rian Johnson’s marvelous who-done-it (and how’d-they-do-it) all-star murder mystery Knives Out is more than just a witty modern-day riff on a familiar Agatha Christie-like scenario.
