Beauty and the Beast 3-D (1991)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 13th, 2012 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

The movie doesn’t need to be in 3-D, and I can’t say the process adds or subtracts anything one way or the other. But the bottom line is that Beauty and the Beast, as good as it looks on Blu-ray, as superbly as it plays at home, deserves to be seen in a movie theatre.

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 13th, 2012 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

I won’t say Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is perfect but I will say I adored and loved it with all my being nonetheless. This is the type of film that might take a while to catch on with the masses, might need more years to marinate in the psyche before it breaks through as the instant classic I suspect it might be, my euphoria for Daldry’s latest virtually without end.

The Iron Lady (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 13th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

I’m sorry but none of that is enough, and for a woman who changed the face of international politics forever, for a figure who challenged the very notion of what a leader could be, I wanted more. More importantly, she deserved more, and on that point alone The Iron Lady is a staggering misfire difficult for me to even partially recommend.

Joyful Noise (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 13th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

When Joyful Noise does sing it hits a number of heavenly notes. Sadly it just doesn’t hit enough of them to make the movie as a whole anything more than a musical prayer that’s vexingly left unanswered.

Pariah (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 13th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Alike’s journey is a harrowing one, filled with victories and setbacks, heartbreak and heroism, forgiveness and despair. Most of all, however, there is hope and there is love, and no matter how dark the night the light streaming from the horizon at dawn will almost certainly warm the cockles of even the most miserly heart.

A Separation (2011)

Put simply, A Separation is one of the great cinematic achievements I’ve ever seen, and in my opinion is the best film I saw in 2011.

Marwencol (2010)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 24th, 2010 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Marwencol is a journey into the subconscious of a man who doesn’t always know just how loudly he is speaking, and as such it is an empathetic story of triumph that continues to evolve as each day passes making this film an emotionally stunning achievement that ranks as one of the finest documentaries, and one of the best motion pictures, I’ve seen in all of 2010.

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.
