The Dictator (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While not great satire, The Dictator is still pretty good, and it doesn’t take a despot to urge those partial to this type of humor to take a chance on the comedy and buy a matinee ticket.

What to Expect When You’re Expecting (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

I don’t know what I expected walking into What to Expect When You’re Expecting, but walking out I did know what I’d gotten, this comedic misfire an unfortunate waste of time I’d rather not have seen in the first place.

Dark Shadows (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

His Dark Shadows is an odd duck, never really finding solid footing yet still offering up plenty of laughs, some of them the biggest the director has crafted since Beetlejuice. It goes to some highly intriguing places and isn’t afraid to slow dance across a blood-red floor.

God Bless America (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

God Bless America comes out guns blazing, and even if all the targets don’t get hit just enough of them do the satirical end result is nothing less than lethal.

Tonight You’re Mine (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Tonight You’re Mine isn’t anything new, doesn’t break any ground or go any place that I didn’t fully anticipate. But like I’ve already stated, that’s just fine. This movie is a song I loved singing along to, its boisterous chorus so infectious I feel like I’m going to be humming it for the remainder of the week.

Darling Companion (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Darling Companion is so intent on not taking anyone to task or coming up with sights or sounds an audience might find potentially off-putting it ends up swimming in some incredibly banal waters.

The Five-Year Engagement (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

As courtships go, The Five-Year Engagement didn’t have enough oomph to get me to the alter, making me something of a runaway bride as I exited the theatre and found myself wishing I would have eloped with a different motion picture altogether.

The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

The Cabin in the Woods is a winner. I can’t wait to watch it again, and I’m sure this will become an annual staple for re-watch every Halloween.

Detention (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 13th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Kahn’s sophomore effort Detention has guts and it cheekily goes for gory glory, both traits I do not personally take for granted and ones I think audiences open to this sort of thing will eagerly want to explore.
