Les Misérables (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 10th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

This might not be Victor Hugo’s story, but that doesn’t mean Les Misérables doesn’t still bear the author’s imprint, the ending of this story a mixture of tragedy, compromise, disappointment and, yes, even hope that leaves many questions unanswered and the future for all involved painfully uncertain.

Like a Boss (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 10th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Thanks primarily to the cast I can’t hate on Like a Boss, but that doesn’t mean I found it worth recommending, either. It’s instantly forgettable, and by the end of January it will probably have slipped out of my mind completely.

The Sonata (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 10th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Andrew Desmond’s feature-length narrative debut The Sonata is a literate, methodically paced throwback gothic thriller that plays a little like a Hammer production from the mid-to-late 1960s that would have starred Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in the two primary male roles.

Underwater (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 9th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Underwater gets the job done. I liked it a lot. Heck, I’m likely to head to the theatre and see it again before January ends.

The Grudge (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 6th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

It is a pity that The Grudge goes so obnoxiously off the rails just as it’s building to a conclusion.

Just Mercy (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 23rd, 2019 - Movie Reviews

By challenging audiences to recognize and understand this fact Cretton is adding his voice to the growing chorus attempting to see that this happens, that in and of itself reason enough to give the Just Mercy a look.

Little Women (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 23rd, 2019 - Movie Reviews

This Little Women kept me on my toes, and even though I’ve read Alcott’s novel multiple times and have watched Armstrong’s sublime adaptation on numerous occasions, I still felt like I was experiencing this tale for the first time while watching Gerwig’s film.

Uncut Gems (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 23rd, 2019 - Movie Reviews

There is nothing polite about brothers Benny Safdie and Josh Safdie’s newest hyper-adrenalized ticking clock drama Uncut Gems.
