Sparkle is a turgid slog of clichés, facile melodrama and missed opportunities.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green (2012)

There is magic happening here, maybe just enough to make The Odd Life of Timothy Green a motion picture I’ll revisit in the future and think even better of the second time around.

The Bourne Legacy (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

It’s all a great deal of fun, but there is also no avoiding that The Bourne Legacy, an expansion of the universe begun with The Bourne Identity, does feel a bit inconsequential.

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry isn’t perfect, but I’m not sure it needed to be, a man as complicated and as intriguing as Weiwei a fascinating enigma whom a complete picture of might never be developed.

Total Recall (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2012 - Movie Reviews

There is something so rudimentary about all of the running, jumping, falling, kicking and punching, something so tired about all the crashes, booms and bangs, the resulting two-hours of this new Total Recall have an oddly antiseptic quality which makes the subsequent film instantly, and somewhat ironically, forgettable.

Farewell, My Queen presents a side of the French Revolution I’ve never thought to ponder, this look behind the gates of Versailles oftentimes fascinating.

The Watch (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 27th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While the movie does have its share of laughs, and even though there are some inspired moments, overall The Watch is a shockingly middling affair that oftentimes feels haphazardly slapped together.

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The final hour of The Dark Knight Rises is a kinetic whirlwind of Shakespearian tragedy mixed with a Puccini opera.
