Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 26th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Yet, even at an epic 142 minutes, gosh darn it all if I didn’t still get a kick out of watching The Death Cure.

Desolation (2017)

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

Yet tension exists, and terror continually follows it, everything building to a suitably violent and destructive climax that kept me moving forward in my seat eager to discover how things were going to turn out.

2018 Academy Awards – Nominations Predictions

It can safely be said that predicting the nominees, let alone the eventual winners, of the 90th annual Academy Awards, is as difficult this year as it has ever been.

12 Strong (2018)

With the war in Afghanistan ongoing and no immediate end to the conflict in sight, the fact 12 Strong plays like nationalistic propaganda shouldn’t be surprising.

Den of Thieves (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 19th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

None of that matters because Den of Thieves is so brain dead, so filled with bad ideas and lame plot devices, that maintaining interest in what is going on and why, let alone caring about who is going to survive until the end, is practically impossible.

The Commuter (2018)

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

Neeson and Collet-Serra know what they’re doing and they’ve got the formula down pat. For fans of the pair, there are certainly far worse ways to spend a couple of hours. If anything, The Commuter sure beats getting stuck in rush hour traffic on the way home from work.

Paddington 2 (2017)

I might even go so far as to proclaim Paddington 2 pretty much perfect, but let me indulge in one more marmalade sandwich before I make the decision to say just that.

Phantom Thread (2017)

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

Day-Lewis has said this is his last role, that with Phantom Thread’s release he is retiring from acting. If this is indeed the case, Anderson has crafted for the three-time Academy Award winner a role fitting of his legendary talents.

Devil’s Gate (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 5th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

But it is the film’s eerie sound design that is most impressive. Staub uses it as a weapon, keeping both the characters and the audience constantly discombobulated, and it is frequently impossible to know what each little creak in the floorboards, whistle of wind or crack of lightning signifies let alone where they might be coming from.
