Mank (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 4th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Mank is nothing more than a metaphorical celluloid sled of failed dreams and misguided ambition burning to ash in a fiery furnace fueled by frustratingly combustible emptiness.

Sound of Metal (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 4th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

There is a breathless sonic majesty to Darius Marder’s superb Sound of Metal that left me a discombobulated mess long after the drama had ended.

Happiest Season (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 25th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Happiest Season is a comfortingly romantic present almost guaranteed to bring its recipient joy, and all things considered in a year overflowing with humbug this small gift of holiday cheer is more than enough to satisfy.

The Croods: A New Age (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 24th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Thanks to the talented cast a lot of the humor worked for me, and as relentlessly energetic as The Croods: A New Age can be, I still spent the majority of my time watching it with a gigantic grin plastered on my face.

Vanguard (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 19th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

While harmless and not altogether without its minor pleasures, Vanguard is instantly forgettable, and if one wants to see Chan at the height of his creative powers I suggest re-watching the original Police Story trilogy instead of this.

2067 (2020) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 17th, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

2067 is aggressively underwhelming, and even though writer/director Seth Larney makes the most of his limited budget, this is one science fiction adventure I’d rather have avoided going on.

V for Vendetta (2005) (4K Ultra HD)

V for Vendetta plays a little differently in 2020 than it did in 2006, that’s for certain.

Freaky (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 11th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Freaky is an imaginative body-swap horror-comedy where thrills and chills relax comfortably alongside giggles and guffaws with intoxicating grace.

Let Him Go (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 6th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Let Him Go is a quiet meditation on grief, forgiveness, regret and family that managed to leave something of a noticeable impression, tragedy, joy, misery and sacrifice all melding into one, powerfully impactful emotional response richly deserving of a few empathetic tears.
