Bernie (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Bernie is simply unlike anything else out there making its way through the multiplexes right now. It is unique and tells a story many have never heard about with intelligence, style and panache.

The Dictator (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While not great satire, The Dictator is still pretty good, and it doesn’t take a despot to urge those partial to this type of humor to take a chance on the comedy and buy a matinee ticket.

What to Expect When You’re Expecting (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

I don’t know what I expected walking into What to Expect When You’re Expecting, but walking out I did know what I’d gotten, this comedic misfire an unfortunate waste of time I’d rather not have seen in the first place.

The Cup (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The Cup feels suffocated, almost as if the director is refusing to allow any emotion, anything that could be construed as an authentic human characteristic to come about naturally.

Dark Shadows (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

His Dark Shadows is an odd duck, never really finding solid footing yet still offering up plenty of laughs, some of them the biggest the director has crafted since Beetlejuice. It goes to some highly intriguing places and isn’t afraid to slow dance across a blood-red floor.

God Bless America (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

God Bless America comes out guns blazing, and even if all the targets don’t get hit just enough of them do the satirical end result is nothing less than lethal.

Tonight You’re Mine (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Tonight You’re Mine isn’t anything new, doesn’t break any ground or go any place that I didn’t fully anticipate. But like I’ve already stated, that’s just fine. This movie is a song I loved singing along to, its boisterous chorus so infectious I feel like I’m going to be humming it for the remainder of the week.

The Avengers (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 2nd, 2012 - Movie Reviews

All I can say is that I hope Whedon does return to the helm, because after this movie the thought of The Avengers assembling without his assertively assured guidance is something I have difficulty pondering.

Darling Companion (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Darling Companion is so intent on not taking anyone to task or coming up with sights or sounds an audience might find potentially off-putting it ends up swimming in some incredibly banal waters.
