The Cabin in the Woods is a winner. I can’t wait to watch it again, and I’m sure this will become an annual staple for re-watch every Halloween.

Detention (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 13th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Kahn’s sophomore effort Detention has guts and it cheekily goes for gory glory, both traits I do not personally take for granted and ones I think audiences open to this sort of thing will eagerly want to explore.

Lockout (2012)

Lockout isn’t even so bad it’s good, the final product an out of this world debacle that will undoubtedly go down as one of 2012’s worst motion pictures.

American Reunion (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 6th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

There just didn’t seem to be any point to bringing everyone back for this fourth go-around, American Reunion proof that sometimes going home again isn’t as good an idea as it’s so often purported to be.

Damsels in Distress (2011)

Damsels in Distress isn’t for everyone. It’s quirky and obnoxious, every character speaking with a stilted directness that takes getting used to.

The Salt of Life (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 6th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The Salt of Life may take some effort to get into but by the time the climax rolls around it becomes impossible to dislike, and I imagine on subsequent viewings this is the type of innately human journey that could grow on me to the point it becomes an essential one to take on a semi-regular basis.

Mirror Mirror (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 30th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Tarsem directs with confidence, and while Mirror Mirror isn’t the magical ride it maybe could have been to say I left the theatre with a spring to my step and feeling happily ever after was a real possibility wouldn’t be too far off the mark.

The Raid: Redemption (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 30th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While the action choreography is impressive, emotionally I’m finding it difficult to care, The Raid: Redemption never quite connecting on anything more than a purely visceral level and nothing more.
