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)

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.

Darling Companion (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Darling Companion is so intent on not taking anyone to task or coming up with sights or sounds an audience might find potentially off-putting it ends up swimming in some incredibly banal waters.

The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The Pirates! Band of Misfits may not be Aardman’s best, but that still makes it better than just about anything else out there for kids and for families, my hearty Aar! of affirmation undeniably boisterous.

Sound of My Voice (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Sound of My Voice is haunting me. I find myself mulling over various segments in a way that has dug under my skin in some sort of uncomfortably luscious fashion, burrowing its way into the very marrow of my bones.

Chimpanzee (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 20th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Chimpanzee did a fine job of transporting me right into the center of the rain forest. I felt like I was there with Oscar, Freddy and the others, that I was sitting next to them as the cracked nuts, climbed trees or defended their territory from invaders.
