Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 6th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Ant-Man and the Wasp is a breezy, fast-paced sequel that goes out of its way to provoke buckets of laughter and massive sighs of wide-eyed awe in pretty in equal measure. It’s a fun film, and other than that I have little more to say.

The First Purge (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 4th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While no one is going to win an Academy Award for their efforts the collective authenticity of the primary cast is never in doubt, and as such caring about whether they live or die is surprisingly easy to do.

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 3rd, 2018 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Having now re-watched all five of the Mission: Impossible films, I can say definitively that Ghost Protocol is my favorite in the series up to this point.

Mission: Impossible III (2006) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 3rd, 2018 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Even with some wonderfully memorable set pieces and a terrific villainous turn by the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman, 2006’s Mission: Impossible III is my least favorite entry in the long-running Tom Cruise international espionage franchise.

Leave No Trace (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 29th, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Leave No Trace is a human mystery where the clue to answering complex psychological riddles squarely resides in the familial bonds of love a father shares with his only daughter, Tom’s ability to see the bigger picture while also taking charge of her life on her own accord an inspirational stunner I can’t wait to see again.

Let the Sunshine In (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 29th, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

If Let the Sunshine In isn’t Denis’ most vital work, that doesn’t make it any less artistically dazzling, the hope for a better tomorrow overflowing in thoughtful companionship and unfettered love a universal longing intelligent viewers of all types should have no problem relating to.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 29th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Far from an easy film, working in moral grey areas so noxious breathing in their fumes for too long is dangerous to one’s health, Sicario: Day of the Soldado is rough going, and as impressive as it might be I’m equally not altogether sure I enjoyed watching this story play itself out to its ethically ambiguous conclusion.

Uncle Drew (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 29th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While some jokes can go a little far, and while not nearly the slam dunk I’m sure many fans were hoping for, a soft jumper off the glass making a delicate “swish” sound still scores two points, and in this case that’s more than enough for Uncle Drew to win this particular comedy game.

The Catcher Was a Spy (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 22nd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The Catcher Was a Spy is an imperfect examination of a curiously complicated figure in American history, and even if many viewers will feel compelled to do additional research into Berg after watching (or, at the very least, pick up a copy of Dawidoff’s book) that doesn’t mean the film itself still isn’t worth taking the time to see.
