Mega Time Squad is a lot of fun, this nutty little New Zealand effort a gonzo charmer I hope people take the time to see.

Alita: Battle Angel has its own sense of purpose and moves with a cagily confident self-awareness that’s wonderful.

Isn’t It Romantic (2019)

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

Isn’t It Romantic is pretty darn amusing, and if Strauss-Schulson and the writers don’t make quite as much out of their inventive scenario as they potentially could have, that doesn’t make what they have delivered any less enjoyable.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Chapter (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 7th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part might not be as awesome as its forerunner but that doesn’t make it any less worthwhile, this amusing follow-up an irreverent gem that even with a few minor misgivings I couldn’t help but enjoy.

What Men Want (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 7th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

What Men Want is a tone-deaf retread that rarely evokes a slight giggle let alone a full guffaw, the film so devoid of satirical insight or comedic inspiration it’s easy to wonder if the film was ever supposed to contain either trait to begin with.

The Guilty (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 5th, 2019 - Blu-ray and DVD

Gustav Möller’s The Guilty is one of 2018 best films. It was a worthy submission for Best Foreign Language Film by Denmark, and even though it didn’t ultimately score a nomination that doesn’t make it any less stellar.

Miss Bala (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 1st, 2019 - Movie Reviews

I’m not going to hate on Miss Bala. Rodriguez is great and I can easily imagine myself being perfectly content to give this one a second look when it’s streaming on Amazon or Netflix, available as a free selection OnDemand or after it begins making the rounds on Cable television. But it just as equally isn’t a thriller I’m going to make any plans to view again for that second time anytime soon.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 29th, 2019 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is growing on me. It’s still a strange movie that has way too much going on and one that never quite gets a handle on all of its various story elements. But it’s made with imagination and flair, and as a purely visual exercise much of it truly is delightful.

Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 28th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

In retrospect, watching Dragon Ball Super: Broly wasn’t the greatest idea I’ve ever had.
