The Counselor (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 25th, 2013 - Movie Reviews

The Counselor (2013) doesn’t go down easy, and it certainly isn’t uplifting, but that doesn’t make it any less great, the film a pointed reminder that greed isn’t pretty and the even the smallest of missteps can have the bloodiest of consequences.

“Carrie” – Interview with Kimberly Peirce

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 18th, 2013 - Interviews

” I love the misfit. I love the outcast. The misfit represents all of us, and I think we’re lying to ourselves if we act like we have graduated from being in that position ourselves. I think people want to think they are no longer the misfit but the truth is everybody, everyday has some instant where suddenly you’re the odd one out.”

All Is Lost (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 18th, 2013 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

All is Lost is a triumph, no more, and certainly no less, and my gut feeling is that viewers who take up the challenge to see it in a theatre will likely feel the same.

Big Ass Spider! (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 18th, 2013 - Movie Reviews

You get what you pay for as it pertains to Big Ass Spider!, and to my mind this is a very good thing indeed. If you’re headed to the box office chances are you have preconceived ideas of what it is you want, the title of the film not exactly shrouding things in any sort of mystery. It is, after all, claiming to be a movie about a big ass spider, meaning that if it doesn’t have one you are likely to come away angrily disappointed.

Carrie (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 18th, 2013 - Movie Reviews

So much of Carrie is rudimentary to the point it’s almost tedious, all of which makes caring about much of what transpires exceedingly difficult.

Escape Plan (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 18th, 2013 - Movie Reviews

For all its many faults Escape Plan still manages to be an entertaining action throwback, and pardon me if I ended up enjoying the heck out of it.

All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (2006)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 11th, 2013 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

All the Boys Love Mandy Lane is a great showcase for a filmmaker at the start of his career, Levine juggling the labyrinthine tangents of Forman’s screenplay with a lethally intoxicating precision that’s impressive.

Captain Phillips (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 11th, 2013 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Captain Phillips doesn’t present new ideas so much as it puts a mirror to the best and the worst of human nature, allowing the viewer to make of that glimpse what they will, the resultant life lessons striking in their universality.

Machete Kills (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 11th, 2013 - Movie Reviews

Rodriguez and Trejo may love Machete Cortez, and that’s just fine, but that doesn’t mean I don’t hope they’re finally done with the character, Machete Kills not worthy of more than a minute or two of anyone’s time.
