This Means War (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 17th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

This Means War isn’t an abomination, but that’s not exactly a positive, and I imagine a rabid seal smacking me in the face with its flipper for 90 straight minutes would be more entertaining than watching this romantically-challenged comedy ended up proving to be.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 10th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is nothing more than a CGI-filled, visually resplendent 3-D bore, and no forays to Atlantis or rides on Captain Nemo’s submarine would ever be able to convince me otherwise.

Safe House (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 10th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While not a total loss, Espinosa’s Hollywood debut is still a disappointment, and while Safe House will play just fine when it makes its inevitable appearance on Cable television, that’s not good enough to warrant the purchase of a matinée ticket to see this one in a theatre.

The Vow (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 10th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

This movie won me over, kept me happily entertained, and while the heroine might be battling partial amnesia I can pretty much guarantee The Vow is one 2012 release I’m going to have trouble forgetting anytime soon.

W.E. (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 10th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

W.E. shows that, for mostly worse and not much in the way of better, the Material Girl is still alive and well, and while the superficial glossy surface-level sheen is impressive as a dramatic sojourn into love, life and the mystery of romantic entanglement this film is as big an epic fail as any I’ve had the misfortune to see in quite some time.

Big Miracle (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 3rd, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Big Miracle struck a chord with me, and I can’t say its saga of resilience and faith in the face of unthinkable odds didn’t connect. I liked it, it’s a whale of a tale, and one viewers of all ages will almost certainly enjoy as well.

Chronicle (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 3rd, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Yet Chronicle achieves its meager goals, this high-flying adventure keeping me entertained with nary a hiccup.

The Innkeepers (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 3rd, 2012 - Movie Reviews

For those willing to let the film’s modest charms work on them, West’s The Innkeepers can be one heck of an enjoyable pulse-pounding ride.

The Woman in Black (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 3rd, 2012 - Movie Reviews

If only the denouement wasn’t so forgone, didn’t revel in familiarity while also telegraphing its scares like a second-rate John Carpenter B-movie. I was more than ready to extoll the virtues of The Woman in Black, to scream its praises from the marshy moors. But because of that soggy climax I just can’t do it.
