Bears (2014)

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

Bears isn’t a bad film, far from it, and do think parents should show it to their children (and hopefully watch it with them). I’m just not sure if it is worthwhile for them to head out to the multiplex to view it instead of waiting for the movie to hit DVD and Blu-ray.

"Transcendence" Warner Bros.

Transcendence (2014)

That Transcendence doesn’t ultimately work is decidedly a problem but that doesn’t make the experience of watching it any less riveting, and as failures go this is arguably one I’ll be thinking about and pondering for many months to come.

Delivery Man (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 17th, 2014 - Blu-ray and DVD

It took me three viewings to watch ‘Delivery Man’ the second time, not because I found the attempt a execrable experience but more because I kept falling asleep. That says it all, right?

Nick Frost, Chris O'Dowd in "Cuban Fury" eOne Entertainment

Cuban Fury (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 12th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Cuban Fury is so darn likeable, so amazingly jovial and, best of all, so gosh darn funny, the over-familiarity of it all doesn’t end up being as gigantic a problem.

Draft Day (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 11th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

A facile, trite, forced and false piece of Hollywood hokum that’s about as authentic as a Spam sandwich smothered in Velveeta cheese.

Karen Gillan in 'Oculus' (Relativity Media)

Oculus (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 11th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

You have to be willing to accept the fact that “Oculus” revolves around the conceit of a haunted mirror. Once you do that, if you can allow yourself to go there, what proceeds is a surprisingly effective, shockingly intelligent thriller.

The Raid 2 (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 11th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Funny thing is, even with so much more going on, even with so many pieces vying for attention, The Raid 2 is every bit as relentless as its predecessor, Evans staging scene after scene of epic action fireworks overflowing in imagination and enthusiasm.

"Rio 2" 20th Century Fox

Rio 2 (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 11th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

Plot tangents involving long-lost family members, environmental devastation, human greed and learning that home is indeed where the heart is all fall flat, none of these disparate threads close to weaving together into a cohesive whole.

Under the Skin - Scarlett Johansson

Under the Skin (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 11th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

“Under the Skin” doesn’t apologize for being difficult, it embraces the fact, everything inside its cinematic shell a roller-coaster of emotional tumult worthy of being ridden multiple times.
