Tomb Raider (2018)

Tomb Raider is a total kick in the pants and I had a terrific time watching it.

Gringo (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 9th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

A freewheeling crime and caper comedy of errors that gets more violently rambunctious as it goes along, Gringo is an elaborate shell game where it’s impossible to know which hat the walnut is under.

A Wrinkle in Time (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 8th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

A Wrinkle in Time might not be as magnificent as L’Engle’s novel (and I can’t say I expected it to be), but even so DuVernay’s adaptation is still a spellbinding family-friendly adventure worth venturing out to see.

Tom Jones (1963) – Criterion Collection

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 6th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Tom Jones is a magnificently entertaining motion picture, and while I’m not one to say it’s quite the masterpiece it was lauded as back in 1963, that does not mean it still isn’t an essential piece of cinema worthy of multiple looks.

The Sect (1991)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 4th, 2018 - Blu-ray and DVD

Look, a person going into The Sect should hopefully have a pretty good idea of what it is they are in for when they slip this Blu-ray into the player. Soalvi’s films are raw, chaotic, nonsensical and maliciously maniacal in ways that often defy belief.

Midnighters (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 2nd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

There is a nascent nasty streak running through Midnighters that’s as hard-boiled as it is cutthroat, and it’s easy to imagine golden age stars of yesterday like Dana Andrews, Ida Lupino, Gloria Grahame or Richard Widmark in any of the central roles the two Ramsay bothers have created to reside within this particular moralistic cinematic quagmire.

Red Sparrow (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 2nd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

Red Sparrow likely won’t jump start a new franchise, the ugly, harshly repugnant nature of things not going to sit well with a great many members of the audience, yet I still find I liked it all the same. This is a thriller I’ll be thinking about for some time to come, and I have this sneaky suspicion I’m going to be taking a second look at it sooner rather than later.
