I thoroughly enjoyed director Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It made me smile.

Rocketman (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 30th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Fletcher is channeling All That Jazz and Absolute Beginners but with a Hairspray meets Mamma Mia! high-gloss glittery shimmer, the grit and angst of the tortured artist juxtaposed against a Technicolor milieu that’s been art directed and costumed within an inch of its rockabilly heart.

Aladdin (2019)

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

While lacking in the same kind of ingenious magic that helped allow the original to stand the test of time, this new Aladdin still has a few winning tricks up its sleeve making it worthy of a look.

Photograph (2019)

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

Photograph is a beautiful snapshot of romantic longing and human understanding that’s nothing less than glorious, watching it a rapturously intimate pleasure I didn’t want to end.

Fighting with My Family (Director’s Cut) (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 21st, 2019 - Blu-ray and DVD

This movie is just a heck of a lot of fun to watch. It’s very entertaining. While the director’s cut that is also included here doesn’t really change anything substantive (the running time for both versions is identical), it is interesting from the standpoint of seeing some of the minor tweaks that had to be made for the film to receive a PG-13 rating.

The Sun is Also a Star (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 17th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

The Sun is Also a Star is definitely a case study in how a terrible ending can lead an otherwise fine motion picture down the road to disaster, and the more I continue to think about it the angrier I seem to get.

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 15th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is a highflying ballet of bloodshed and carnage that’s altogether remarkable, the adrenaline rush I got while watching it a euphoric high I wish I could bottle and sell at the neighborhood store.

Shadow (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 15th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Shadow is a masterful spectacle of human frailty and intellectual dishonesty that only grows in resonance as it goes along, its haunting final image of a pained decision in the process of being made one that will stick with me for quite some time to come.
