Shaft (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 13th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

This latest effort to carry the Shaft name isn’t unwatchable but it equally isn’t worthy of a look, either, all of which makes shutting my mouth about its various missteps and shortcomings impossible to do.

Like the character she portrays rules her evening talk show, Thompson towers over this movie with a stunning magnificence that’s extraordinary, and when I watch Late Night again in the future I will do so entirely because of her.

Dark Phoenix (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 6th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

It’s moderately exasperating how things eventually play themselves out, and while I appreciate the risks Kinberg and his team are taking with Dark Phoenix, and while I was rooting for the film’s success even when I could see it falling annoying off the rails, this climactic journey of the X-Men just didn’t do it for me.

Batman (1989) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 5th, 2019 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Batman is a great superhero film that features outstanding direction from Tim Burton and superlative performances from Jack Nicholson and Michael Keaton. While certainly a product of its era, the film has still withstood the test of time marvelously.

Rocketman (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 30th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Fletcher is channeling All That Jazz and Absolute Beginners but with a Hairspray meets Mamma Mia! high-gloss glittery shimmer, the grit and angst of the tortured artist juxtaposed against a Technicolor milieu that’s been art directed and costumed within an inch of its rockabilly heart.
