Nightcrawler (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 31st, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Nightcrawler sticks with you like a popcorn kernel stuck in your tooth or like gum refusing to budge from the underside of your shoe, the overall picture an agreeably nauseating plunge into the sewer that is worth diving into headfirst and without a safety harness.

Whiplash is a musical mindblower, the power and the fury of this dramatic paradiddle a vibrant rim shot to the soul that’s nothing short of breathtaking.

Birdman (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 24th, 2014 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

There’s no denying Birdman is impossible to take your eyes off of. From the opening image of a meteor careening across the sky, to its final moments when an actor combines insanity and inspiration into some form of creative euphoria, the movie is a vital, rhythmically alive character study looking at creation in all its complexity.

John Wick (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 24th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Reeves’ John Wick is a walking hearse, unleashing death and destruction as easily as the average person breathes. He waltzes through the film with steely-eyed aggressiveness, his single-minded pursuit one he’ll see carried out come what may.

Rudderless (2014)

Considering the type of actor Macy himself has always been, Rudderless is a showcase for all involved, Macy coaxing superlative performances.

Fury (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 17th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Ayer hasn’t made a great WWII film, but aspects of it certainly are, and even with a handful of misgivings Fury is one ride onto the battlefield I can’t wait to sit shotgun on for a second time relatively soon.

Dracula Untold (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 10th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Dracula Untold is as pointless as it is somewhat surprisingly bloodless, the heart beating at the center of this effort as cold and as lifeless as the central ‘hero’ around which everything revolves.

The Judge (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 10th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Not so much a disaster as it is a waste of time, one doesn’t need a jury’s declaration to know The Judge should have been sent to the gallows long before it ever went into production in the first place.

Annabelle (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 3rd, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Yet it is that climax which truly sinks this prequel, Annabelle in the end only conjuring up my anger and vitriol that it would do something so horrifically stupid and think that would be okay.
