The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 21st, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Loosely born from co-writer/star Jimmie Fails’ own life experiences, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is at times a broad comedy, at others a searing social commentary, and in many instances a bracingly tragic melodrama

Toy Story 4 (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 19th, 2019 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

I do hope Toy Story 4 is the last of the series, if only because the bow it puts on Woody’s four-film expedition is tied with such loving perfection I have trouble imagining the filmmakers could ever do better than what they miraculously accomplish here.

The Dead Don’t Die (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 14th, 2019 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

But it’s all haphazardly thrown together and never coherently focused, Jarmusch allowing The Dead Don’t Die to have a disheveled lackadaisical momentum that’s too nondescript to resonate and too messily pieced together for events to emotionally matter.

Men in Black: International (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 13th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

At almost two full hours, Men in Black: International trudges along with almost no interest in getting to its destination with anything approaching haste.

Shaft (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 13th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

This latest effort to carry the Shaft name isn’t unwatchable but it equally isn’t worthy of a look, either, all of which makes shutting my mouth about its various missteps and shortcomings impossible to do.

Late Night (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 7th, 2019 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Like the character she portrays rules her evening talk show, Thompson towers over this movie with a stunning magnificence that’s extraordinary, and when I watch Late Night again in the future I will do so entirely because of her.

Dark Phoenix (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 6th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

It’s moderately exasperating how things eventually play themselves out, and while I appreciate the risks Kinberg and his team are taking with Dark Phoenix, and while I was rooting for the film’s success even when I could see it falling annoying off the rails, this climactic journey of the X-Men just didn’t do it for me.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

The Secret Life of Pets 2 improves upon the first film in every conceivable way in my opinion, unleashing a trio of beguiling little stories that kids of all ages are almost certain to find enjoyable.

Batman (1989) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 5th, 2019 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Batman is a great superhero film that features outstanding direction from Tim Burton and superlative performances from Jack Nicholson and Michael Keaton. While certainly a product of its era, the film has still withstood the test of time marvelously.
