The Crucifixion (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 6th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

This is a tired, frustratingly banal piece of genre pulp fiction that even at only 91 minutes feels like it goes on for an eternity, and the only thing I wanted from The Crucifixion was for it to end so I could go do something else.

The Mountain Between Us (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 6th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Much like the plane crash that begins this particular tale, The Mountain Between Us bangs into the side of a metaphorical cliff leaving all kinds of wreckage in its wake, the fact any elements worth extolling the virtues of survived at all something of a minor miracle in and of itself.

Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 4th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

This is a worthy, thoughtful and intelligently composed sequel, and much like Scott’s original film Blade Runner 2049 is guaranteed to provoke passionately heated debate and discussion that will continue long into the foreseeable future.

Flatliners (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 1st, 2017 - Movie Reviews

This Flatliners makes all of the exact same mistakes as the original, stranding its talented and attractive cast in ways that grow increasingly ridiculous as things move towards a climax.

Gook (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 1st, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Gook is a very good film, sometimes a great one, and even when it stumbles and loses its way towards the end I still found myself eagerly interested to discover everything Chon’s opus was aching to show me.

American Made (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 29th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Seal’s story is the American Dream flipped on its head, Gary Spinelli’s sharply observant script cutting its protagonist little slack as it makes its way towards its suitably hardhearted conclusion.

Super Dark Times (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 29th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Super Dark Times might not earn its blood-soaked finale, but that doesn’t make what happens up to that point any less compelling, Phillips in the end proving himself to be a strong directorial talent worth keeping an eye on.

Battle of the Sexes (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 28th, 2017 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Ignorant bullies weaponizing sexism, homophobia and racism deserve to be silenced, and whether they’re on the tennis court, inside corporate boardroom or even heaven forbid in the gosh darn White House, it’s about time we all follow Billie Jean King’s example and do whatever we can to shut them up, hopefully this time for good.

Friend Request (2016)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 22nd, 2017 - Movie Reviews

For all its potential, Friend Request deserves to be ignored, swiping left and forgetting about this film entirely the only course of action I can in good conscience recommend.
