To Rome with Love (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 4th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

To Rome with Love is overstuffed yet also oddly vague, and while the better bits are wonderful the lesser ones irritated me so much they made the final product a disappointing afterthought in the career of a justifiably lauded filmmaker we all know is capable of better.

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

For all The Amazing Spider-Man gets wrong the template it sets for the future and the actors it spotlights to bring it all to life are part of a fairly solid foundation so I’m curious to see what happens next.

Magic Mike (2012)

Magic Mike is an emotionally complex rollercoaster ride overflowing in raucously euphoric highs. So many of them, in fact, I can guarantee this is one title I’m going to be talking about for the remainder of the year.

Banks is incredible, her performance the anchor that holds People Like Us together.

Ted (2012)

As funny as Ted can be the magic of the early moments quickly dissipates, making this one-joke comedy borderline unbearable.

Brave is, in a word, beautiful, and I will just leave things at that.

Grassroots (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 22nd, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Grassroots shows that, win or lose, hope still exists, and that the tiniest of voices can still be heard if they have the guts to stand before a microphone and have the courage to make their opinions public.

True Wolf (2012)

I enjoyed True Wolf, got wrapped up in Koani and her family’s story in a way I hadn’t anticipated before watching.
