Gone Girl (2014)

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

Gone Girl is a movie aching to be seen, savored, discussed and debated, Fincher assembling a motion picture so of-the-moment the effect is so startling it’s practically a mirror reflecting truths we don’t want to think about back at us whether we want it to or not.

The Boxtrolls is a divine, intoxicating fantasy, and in the end is a first-rate marvel of originality and inspiration.

The Equalizer (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 26th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

This iteration of The Equalizer losing too much steam and not maintaining strong enough focus to make all the sound and fury mean near as much as I wanted it to.

The Damned (2014)

The infuriating thing about The Damned is that it comes agonizingly close to being a good horror yarn.

Tracks (2014)

Tracks kept me at arm’s length, never allowed me to embrace any facet in ways that were entirely satisfying.

Overall A Walk Among the Tombstones earns high marks. This is a confident, intelligently constructed motion picture made with care, passion and understanding.

The Guest (2014)

Less is more where it comes to director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett’s borderline brilliant thriller, The Guest. Don’t ask about the plot twists. Don’t watch the trailers.

The Maze Runner (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 19th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

The Maze Runner is well made, and I certainly found myself intrigued and fascinated by much of what it had to offer; the fact it ended up being nothing more than a prequel to a sequel is a dumbfounding disappointment.

This Is Where I Leave You (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 19th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

With the entire cast hitting on all cylinders, This Is Where I Leave You ends up being something of a minor success, and while I’m sure all involved hoped for more, considering how bad this could have been, being “pretty good” is nothing to scoff at.
