Looper (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 28th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Looper is Grade A sci-fi entertainment. Johnson’s film works, and like all great time travel epics, this is one adventure we’re all going to be thinking about far into the unknowable future.

Pitch Perfect (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 28th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Pitch Perfect hits most of the right notes, and because of this ends up being as smoothly enjoyable as anything currently playing in theatres at this moment.

Won’t Back Down (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 28th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

There’s an important story lurking inside Won’t Back Down, but Barnz and Hill apparently weren’t the duo to tell it, the filmmakers failing their final exam so spectacularly they might as well have flunked right out of school.

Dredd (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Dredd didn’t do much for me, and while my final judgment is hardly as negative as it could have been, that doesn’t mean my passing of sentence labeling the film as forgettable is an endorsement people should purchase a ticket to see it in a theatre.

House at the End of the Street (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Early on House at the End of the Street had me intrigued. By the midsection I was completely captivated by it. But by the end? By that point I was ready to throw things at the screen and howl my disapproval at how wildly off the rails this Hitchcockian enterprise in suspense and terror had suddenly become.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2012 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

I’m not entirely sure I’ve felt more kinship with a motion picture in recent memory than I have with screenwriter and director Stephen Chbosky’s stunning adaption of his own 1999 novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Trouble with the Curve (2012)

Cliché Curve Strikes Out at the Plate I’m having a hard time trying to write a review of longtime Clint Eastwood producing partner Robert Lorenz’s directorial debut Trouble with the Curve. Not because I don’t have anything to say, but more because the film is so gosh darn nice I feel sort of bad that […]

Liberal Arts (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 19th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Radnor has crafted characters who live in the real world and not in some fantastical juvenile celluloid fabrication of it.

The Master (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 19th, 2012 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Anderson’s Master an Enchanting Intellectual Banquet Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master isn’t an easy sit. Its themes are all over the map, and what it’s talking about is purposefully vague. Most notably, it’s never a certainty whose story it is telling, three primary characters all competing for screen time with two of them sharing numerous […]
