The King of Staten Island (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 12th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

While an ambitious enterprise with royal aspirations to greatness, The King of Staten Island never earned its crown, and as such my fidelity to its ruling authority is practically nonexistent.

Shirley (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 12th, 2020 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Shirley paints the author with an insightfully lush and vibrant brush, her relationship with Rose allowing for a level of empathetic understanding that makes enduring all those ethereal metaphorical ghouls, ghosts and demons magnetically worthwhile.

Creepshow – Season 1 (2019) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 2nd, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

Like most horror anthologies, the first season of Creepshow is unsurprisingly hit-and-miss. But the hits, most notably “House of the Head,” “The Finger” and “The Man in the Suitcase,” are pretty terrific, while the misses are still just amusing enough to not get all that upset that they’re not nearly as strong as some of their counterparts are.

The High Note (2020)

The High Note is so much fun to watch any issues I have keep evaporating into the ether almost as if they never existed in the first place.

The Vast of Night (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 28th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

The Vast of Night is a fast-paced genre excursion into the mysterious unknown. It held me breathlessly spellbound for almost 90 minutes, the haunting nature of the questions it enthusiastically asks as prescient and as essential now as they ever were back during the McCarthyism 1950s time period in which this tale is set.

Military Wives (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 22nd, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Cattaneo’s latest was a balm for my soul, injecting a dollop of joy into my heart while a happy tear or two ran down the side of my cheek. I liked Military Wives, and I’m happy to sing its praises as vociferously as I can.

Proximity (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 22nd, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Proximity is a visually striking disappointment, and as far as close encounters go this is one I’m not going to be ruminating on in any sort of detail anytime soon.

War of the Worlds (2005) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2020 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Holy freaking cow the technical aspects of this 4K Ultra HD version of Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds are nothing less than dazzling. From an audio-visual standpoint, this disc is perfect.
