The Mule (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 16th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While a second-tier effort from the Oscar-winning veteran that still makes The Mule better than a lot of other filmmakers’ first tier selections, and for fans of the director this could be a solid matinee option worth hitting the road in order to see.

Mary Queen of Scots (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 14th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While I have more than my fair share of reservations, on the basis of Ronan and Robbie alone I still think Rourke’s debut is worth a look, and even if Mary Queen of Scots isn’t quite the royal entertainment I was hoping for as matinee fodder is concerned interested viewers could certainly do a heck of a lot worse.

Mortal Engines (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 14th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

There’s so much to love, so much that held me spellbound, the fact I’m sitting here annoyed that Mortal Engines never works nearly as well as it by all accounts early on looks as if it is going to has me lingering in a state perilously close to anger.

The Quake (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 14th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The Quake might not shake, rattle and roll to the same extent its superb forerunner did but that doesn’t mean it also isn’t worthwhile, this bone-chilling sequel an effectively entertaining follow-up I hope fans of the first film take the time to see.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 14th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

There is something new about Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse that can be traced squarely to the injection of this fresh blood into the proceedings. Miles is a hero anyone and everyone can relate to, making his animated debut a family-friendly present worth heading to the closest theatre to unwrap at any point throughout this holiday season.

The Critters Collection (1986-1992)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 12th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

There’s a reason the Critters series has remained so popular for the past three-plus decades, the first two films winningly inventive and hugely enjoyable even if they’re also undeniably slight and purposefully silly.

The Favourite (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 7th, 2018 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Not going to mince words: I’m in love with idiosyncratic director Yorgos Lanthimos’ mind-bending historical drama-comedy-thriller-satire-political commentary oddity The Favourite.

Vox Lux (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 7th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Vox Lux begins with an act of violence so sudden, so explosive, so exploitive it wouldn’t surprise me if some viewers stop watching barely ten minutes into the movie.

Roma (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 5th, 2018 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Roma is a feast. It is a feast for the eyes. It is a feast for the senses. Most of all, writer/director Alfonso Cuarón’s latest is a feast for the soul, this meditative marvel of memory, regret, friendship, family, history and love a majestic treasure trove of emotion that is stunning in its empathetically human largess.
