The Predator (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 12th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

All I do know is that The Predator might be one of the more stupefying and frustrating disappointments of 2018, and a big part of me kind of wishes I hadn’t watched it in the first place.

Return of the Living Dead Part II (1988) – Collector’s Edition

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 10th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Return of the Living Dead Part II isn’t good…However, Scream! Factory’s Blu-ray presentation, which restores almost all of the film’s original audio, features a superb visual presentation and comes loaded with a bevy of incredible bonus features, is a real gem for fans of the series.

Juliet, Naked (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 31st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While I can’t say Juliet, Naked will be a motion picture I’ll be talking about all that vociferously come December, I still enjoyed it a fair amount, and for Byrne’s multifaceted effervescence alone I think this musically infectious romantic endeavor is worthy of the purchase of a matinee ticket.

Kin (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 31st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

I keep trying to convince myself that I liked the science fiction road trip suspense-thriller Kin more than I actually did.

Operation Finale (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 29th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While likely not the breakneck thriller the ads and trailers may have promised, Operation Finale is nonetheless a fascinating drama that recounts a piece of lesser known history that should never, ever be forgotten.

“Puzzle” – Interview with Marc Turtletaub

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 25th, 2018 - Film Festivals Interviews

“We knew it was emotional and touching, that it was a great story about one woman’s journey to find herself, but we were surprised to see how people appreciated the humor. I just hope people enjoy the movie and take what they can from it.”

The Happytime Murders (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 24th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

If this is how Henson intends to get the R-rated side of his career started, there’s little about The Happytime Murders that’s sensational, less that’s inspirational and almost nothing that’s celebrational, making closing the curtain on this bit of comedic mayhem especially easy to do.

“Crazy Rich Asians” – Interview with Nico Santos

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 22nd, 2018 - Interviews

“I’m speechless. I never thought I would have a career like this where I get to play complex, three-dimensional queer Asian characters. I always thought that when I got into this business that I would have to either butch it up, which listen, I cannot do, or like play silly sidekick roles, and the fact that I’m now portraying two really great queer Asian characters is mind-blowing to me.”

Puzzle (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 17th, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

A rare starring role for Macdonald, the emotionally lithe Puzzle is a fantastic showcase for the veteran character actress. She’s dazzling as Agnes and underplays her part magnificently, allowing all of the delicate nuances of Oren Moverman and Polly Mann’s screenplay to come to heartbreakingly brittle life with astonishing ease.
