Mission: Impossible III (2006) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 3rd, 2018 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Even with some wonderfully memorable set pieces and a terrific villainous turn by the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman, 2006’s Mission: Impossible III is my least favorite entry in the long-running Tom Cruise international espionage franchise.

If Let the Sunshine In isn’t Denis’ most vital work, that doesn’t make it any less artistically dazzling, the hope for a better tomorrow overflowing in thoughtful companionship and unfettered love a universal longing intelligent viewers of all types should have no problem relating to.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018)

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

Far from an easy film, working in moral grey areas so noxious breathing in their fumes for too long is dangerous to one’s health, Sicario: Day of the Soldado is rough going, and as impressive as it might be I’m equally not altogether sure I enjoyed watching this story play itself out to its ethically ambiguous conclusion.

Uncle Drew (2018)

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

While some jokes can go a little far, and while not nearly the slam dunk I’m sure many fans were hoping for, a soft jumper off the glass making a delicate “swish” sound still scores two points, and in this case that’s more than enough for Uncle Drew to win this particular comedy game.

The Catcher Was a Spy (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 22nd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The Catcher Was a Spy is an imperfect examination of a curiously complicated figure in American history, and even if many viewers will feel compelled to do additional research into Berg after watching (or, at the very least, pick up a copy of Dawidoff’s book) that doesn’t mean the film itself still isn’t worth taking the time to see.

Hearts Beat Loud (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 22nd, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

With Hearts Beat Loud, Haley has composed a universally accessible human drama of music, romance and family that brought tears to my eyes while at the same time had me wanting to leap out of my seat in order to give it a hearty cheer.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 21st, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The director is at his best, though, when he allows all of the prehistoric beasties to chomp down on a variety of varying victims, and there were certainly times I wondered what might have been had Bayona made a straightforward dino-themed horror flick instead of another installment in the Jurassic Park universe.

The Rider (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 15th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

A naturalistic marvel of restraint, The Rider is a cinematic triumph I’ll not soon forget.
