Pyewacket (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

While not quite as terrifyingly successful as 2014’s Backcountry, writer/director Adam MacDonald’s supernatural coming of age shocker Pyewacket is still an uncomforting psychological thriller that features a sensational climax and a strong performance from rising star Nicole Muñoz.

Lowlife (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Ryan Prows does a terrific job crafting something engaging, clever and most of all entertaining with his multipart crime comedy-thriller Lowlife, his movie a violently energetic celebration that’s difficult to resist.

Our House (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Even with all its faults I still liked Our House just enough that I’d happily watch it again, the Lightman family’s paranormal exploits just interesting enough to make going to a matinee screening or renting it via VOD moderately worthwhile.

Marrowbone (2017) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 7th, 2018 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Marrowbone is a spellbinding gothic drama overflowing in suspense, dread, pathos, romance and honest to goodness human sentiment. It is a sensational piece of genre subterfuge, the narrative an increasingly byzantine maze overflowing in deft twists and turns.

Blindspotting (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2018 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

I love Blindspotting. It’s the kind of film I want to stand up and cheer the moment the end credits come up on the screen, the type of nail-biting human drama I wish studios made more of and the kind of incisive, take-no-prisoners satire viewers of all persuasions owe it to themselves to take a chance on and see.

Christopher Robin (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

I adored Christopher Robin…It just made me feel good as I sat there and watched it, and even if the basic plot mechanics are familiar in their rudimentary minimalism there is still a warmhearted gracefulness to this tale that makes watching things play out to fruition easy to do.

The Darkest Minds (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

There’s a lot to applaud about The Darkest Minds, just not enough to believe audiences will give it the type of look it is going to need to need for 20th Century Fox to continue to adapt Bracken’s books anytime in the immediate future.

The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

It’s always a question what McKinnon is going to do next, and by the time she climbed to the top of a Cirque Du Soleil trapeze in full costumed regalia to conduct an aerial battle of wits and wiles with an angry assassin she had me giggling so boisterously I almost fell out of my theatre seat.
