The Meg (2018) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 14th, 2018 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

I like The Meg. I enjoy watching Jason Statham and his ragtag team of charming eccentrics battle their megalodon to the death. An unabashedly silly movie, Jon Turteltaub’s crazy little giant shark action spectacular almost can’t help but make me smile.

Boy Erased (2018)

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

But for whatever reason Edgerton loses his way trying to adapt Boy Erased, and while numerous individual elements soar, and while his handling of actors remains close to perfect, the various pieces of this story never fit together as succinctly or as comfortably as they by all accounts should have.

The Grinch (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 9th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Maybe my heart needs to grow a size or two, but this newest take on the Dr. Seuss classic The Grinch ended up being a pre-Thanksgiving present I honestly wish I’d never taken the time to open.

Outlaw King (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 9th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Outlaw King might not be Mackenzie’s finest hour behind the camera, but he’s still just too skilled a filmmaker to craft a motion picture that’s not at least somewhat worthwhile.

Wildlife (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 9th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Wildlife is a quiet, introspective marvel that only grows in lasting resonance the further away I get from it, the lasting imprint it has made upon my psyche one I’m going to treasure for some time to come.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 7th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While not so much a bad movie as it is an instantly forgettable one, new adventures featuring the girl with the dragon tattoo are supposedly still forthcoming. Here’s hoping they’re a heck of a lot more interesting than The Girl in the Spider’s Web is.

“What They Had” – Interview with Elizabeth Chomko

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 3rd, 2018 - Interviews

“You get to that place of grief where you just want to climb out of it, that physiological response of there’s got to be a workaround to get over it. You feel like there’s got to be a shortcut. I’m the eldest grandchild. There had to be a way for me to tell their [my grandparents’] story and help everyone heal.”

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 2nd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

I’m not going to say that Bohemian Rhapsody is the worst film of 2018. I will say it is the year’s most disappointing release to come out of major Hollywood studio this year, this biography of legendary singer Freddie Mercury chronicling Rock ‘n’ Roll supergroup Queen in the 1970s and ‘80s an inept melodramatic slog that never met a troubled musician cliché it didn’t want to enthusiastically embrace with open arms.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 2nd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

There is magic here. Not a lot of it but there’s definitely some to be certain, and with that being the case maybe this newest utilization of Hoffman’s story and Tchaikovsky’s ballet isn’t such a waste of time after all.
