The magic spell Wish casts is minimal at best, and it only lasts about as long as it takes for the end credits to complete their crawl.

I will give Trolls Band Together this much: it is the first film in the series that did not give me a headache.

The Marvels (2023)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 10th, 2023 - Movie Reviews

While maybe the most inconsequential film Marvel has put out into the world (not including a post-credit teaser that is crowd-pleasingly awesome and a little desperate feeling, both at the same time), The Marvels is also one of the fastest paced and most humorously beguiling.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One (2023)

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One is absolutely a mixed bag of tricks. The high points are stratospheric, but the low ones are frequently head-scratching.

The man in the hat is finally allowed to walk into the sunset for good. Cue up the iconic John Williams theme.

Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken (2023)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2023 - Movie Reviews

Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken was not made for me. At least, not the “me” of today. If I were seven or eight years old, I’m sure this colorfully obnoxious adventure would have thrilled me senseless.

The Little Mermaid (2023)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 25th, 2023 - Movie Reviews

For the poor, unfortunate souls hoping this The Little Mermaid will either equal or surpass the animated version, disappointment will be their unhappy bedfellow. But younger audiences will likely enjoy themselves quite a bit, and I can almost guarantee they’re going to fall euphorically in love (and deservedly so) with Bailey’s Ariel.
