Gangster Squad (2013)

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

Poorly paced, lazily edited, reviling in cliché and shot to look as shiny as a newfound penny, Gangster Squad is 2013’s first disaster, and instead of waiting four months to throw it into multiplexes Warner Bros would have been better served to have left it on the shelf unreleased.

Quartet (2012)

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

These artists don’t give in and they refuse to give up, Quartet proving once again that if you can maintain a song in your heart and keep a dance in your step being young is an ongoing state of grace that potentially could last forever.

Cheerful Weather for the Wedding (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 4th, 2013 - Movie Reviews

Do not let the title fool you, Cheerful Weather for the Wedding is hardly the joyous, maybe even celebratory event some might suspect it to be. There is comedy and there is romance, but a romantic comedy this adaptation of Strachey’s novella this movie certainly is not. And that’s just fine.

Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 4th, 2013 - Movie Reviews

Texas Chainsaw 3D isn’t just a bad movie, considering the potential evident during the first third and showcased during the final scene it’s also a disappointing one, the first wide release of 2013 a sad reminder that some wells just shouldn’t be returned to.

The Avengers (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 2nd, 2012 - Movie Reviews

All I can say is that I hope Whedon does return to the helm, because after this movie the thought of The Avengers assembling without his assertively assured guidance is something I have difficulty pondering.

Iron Man 2 (2010)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 7th, 2010 - Movie Reviews

Like the original Iron Man 2 is a movie I don’t particularly mind but don’t exactly love, either, and if I didn’t say that in so many words in regards to the first film not doing so as far as this sequel goes isn’t a mistake I plan on making twice.

Mamma Mia! (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 17th, 2008 - Movie Reviews

“When All is Said and Done,” the only thing that would make me happy is if a picture as bad as Mamma Mia! had the good fortune to meet a box office “Waterloo” befitting its loudly obnoxious crap-tacular style of storytelling ineptitude.

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 13th, 2008 - Movie Reviews

This new Hulk might have its moments and the character might still have his angry superpowers, but that doesn’t make the film anything close to incredible.

Iron Man (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 1st, 2008 - Movie Reviews

Not to say that this inaugural adventure of Iron Man soars very high, but it does get off the ground, and as far as first chapters in what is sure to be an ongoing story is concerned, at least for right now that’s going to have to be enough.
