Avatar: The Way of Water builds to a final hour of action and suspense that blew me through the theater’s back wall.

Coraline (2009) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 13th, 2022 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Coraline is the visually magical film that started it all for Laika back in 2009, and it’s safe to say director Henry Selick’s delectably sinister animated marvel hasn’t lost an ounce of its charm.

Strange World (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 23rd, 2022 - Movie Reviews

Strange World is a gloriously weird adventure that’s like the ungainly love child of a Dr. Seuss storybook melded with Fantastic Voyage that revels in the goofy cosmic sensibilities of a random episode of the classic 1960s television series Lost in Space.

The School for Good and Evil (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 19th, 2022 - Movie Reviews

Feig’s film is nowhere near as fully realized or as creatively satisfying as I kept hoping it was going to be, making The School for Good and Evil a mixed bag of magic tricks.

Three Thousand Years of Longing (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 26th, 2022 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Three Thousand Years of Longing is the story of life, and as frustrating and maddening as that can be, it’s also quite beautiful: the continual hope for a better tomorrow is a wish worth making, no matter what the risks.
