Anna and the Apocalypse (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 30th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Anna and the Apocalypse is a spectacular blood-soaked blast of mirth, mayhem and music, and even if this might be the end of the world the filmmakers have still delivered a raucous celebration of high school Sturm und Drang that’s an apocalyptic delight I cannot wait to watch, and sing along with, again sometime soon.

Sleepwalkers (1992) – Collector’s Edition

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 28th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

I didn’t give Mick Garris’ Sleepwalkers enough credit back in 1992. It’s a much better film than I originally stated filled with some deliciously devious moments. At the same time, it’s still not the most memorable supernatural offering of the era, and even with Stephen King’s name front and center this still feels like a middle-of-the-road tale from the iconic author than it does one of his essential pieces of horror fiction.

Creed II (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 20th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

If this sequel isn’t quite the marvel it processor was that doesn’t make it any less entertaining, and whether for die-hard fans of the series who have been there since the beginning or for newcomers who just came to it on the strength of Coogler’s 2015 opus, Creed II is a pugnacious delight worth getting into the theatrical ring to see.

The Front Runner (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 20th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The Front Runner isn’t the historical evisceration I feel like it potentially could have been, and no matter what Reitman or his fellow filmmakers’ intentions this is one political reenactment that comes up a few votes short of being able to declare an Electoral College victory.

Green Book (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 20th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While I can recommend Green Book it isn’t without some rather substantial reservations, and as glorious as the blossoming friendship between Tony and Dr. Shirley made me feel, I still can’t help but wish I’d spent more time seeing this world through the latter’s eyes instead of his Caucasian chauffeur’s.

Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 20th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The only thing that Ralph Breaks the Internet wrecked was my assumption the first film didn’t require a sequel, this animated jaunt into the online universe a complete and total delight.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018)

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

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald lacks the sense of magic and mystery Rowling’s wizarding world has been noted for since its inception, and not even the divine trinity of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger would be powerful enough to make me believe watching this sequel could be anything close to worthwhile.

Widows (2018)

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

The final scenes of Widows have a haunting truthfulness that left me both shattered and hopeful in the exact same breath, the austere closing image a quiet plea for forgiveness, friendship and companionship that’s nothing short of flawless.
