Get On Up (2014)

Get On Up is a better overall movie than The Help. For director Tate Taylor, it is a massive step forward.

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 31st, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Guardians of the Galaxy takes the Marvel brand into new territories and does so with grandly entertaining brio, and even if all facets aren’t quite perfect they’re still strong enough to make this sci-fi adventure worthwhile.

And So It Goes (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 25th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

And So It Goes is tolerable, nothing more (and thankfully nothing less), getting along as well as it does mainly because its two main stars are so agreeably pleasant.

Boyhood (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 25th, 2014 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Boyhood is remarkable stuff, filled with drama, intrigue, suspense, laughter, tears and all the rest that comes with that.

Hercules (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 25th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

As a movie, as a self-contained story, as a narrative worth getting excited about and a spectacle that manages to make the blood race with electrifying magnetism, Hercules fails at virtually every turn. It’s plodding. It’s dramatically tedious. It’s unforgivably cliché.

Lucy (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 25th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Lucy takes familiar genre tropes found in science fiction, Asian action flicks and superhero origin stories and slyly turns them on their head, crafting a freewheeling satire that’s as inspired as it is loony.

I Origins (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 18th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

I Origins is a beautiful treatise on self, human understanding, religion, science and most of all faith. It moves, shifts and evolves in naturalistic fastidiousness, everything building to a magnificent conclusion.

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 18th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

The Purge: Anarchy is an unapologetically violent exercise in sensationalistic mayhem, that fact is not up for debate, and for my part I’m fine with this, part of me even a tiny bit curious exactly where DeMonaco and company might be interested in taking things next.

Sex Tape (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 18th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Like I said, Sex Tape is a funny movie, and at the end of the day ultimately that’s the only positive that matters.
