Blindspotting (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2018 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

I love Blindspotting. It’s the kind of film I want to stand up and cheer the moment the end credits come up on the screen, the type of nail-biting human drama I wish studios made more of and the kind of incisive, take-no-prisoners satire viewers of all persuasions owe it to themselves to take a chance on and see.

Christopher Robin (2018)

I adored Christopher Robin…It just made me feel good as I sat there and watched it, and even if the basic plot mechanics are familiar in their rudimentary minimalism there is still a warmhearted gracefulness to this tale that makes watching things play out to fruition easy to do.

There’s a lot to applaud about The Darkest Minds, just not enough to believe audiences will give it the type of look it is going to need to need for 20th Century Fox to continue to adapt Bracken’s books anytime in the immediate future.

The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018)

It’s always a question what McKinnon is going to do next, and by the time she climbed to the top of a Cirque Du Soleil trapeze in full costumed regalia to conduct an aerial battle of wits and wiles with an angry assassin she had me giggling so boisterously I almost fell out of my theatre seat.

“Eighth Grade” – Interview with Bo Burnham and Elsie Fisher

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 26th, 2018 - Film Festivals Interviews

“I haven’t worked on a project really where the message of it mattered so much to me. It felt like the message I wanted when I was in that time period. To get to do that for other people and even for myself? I loved that. Part of working on this was realizing that it’s chill to be who you are. It felt very good to say that.”

Eighth Grade (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 25th, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

While my own middle school experiences aren’t ones I’d want to relive, watching Eighth Grade is a trip back to school I’d be happy to take whenever the opportunity to do so might arise.

Yet it is Phoenix, almost all on his own, who makes Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot something that borders on essential.
