Alone (2020)

Alone is crackerjack white-knuckle entertainment, and personally I cannot wait to see it again.

Blackbird (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 18th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

As excellent as the performances might be and as competent as the filmmaking undeniably is, this story never rang true to me, and I can’t help but believe that even under the best of viewing conditions Blackbird would have left me frustratingly cold.

Mulan (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 3rd, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Mulan becomes a story of embracing one’s true identity and the innate power that comes along with doing that, this simple conceit the crucial through-line around which the entire plot emphatically revolves.

Words on Bathroom Walls (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 20th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

I’m having a polarized love-hate reaction to director Thor Freudenthal and screenwriter Nick Naveda’s ambitious, if at times oddly schmaltzy and saccharine, adaptation of author Julia Walton’s best-selling young adult romance Words on Bathroom Walls.

The Secret Garden (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 7th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

This new The Secret Garden, while full of life and overflowing in imagination, isn’t still without a few thorns. Had those been trimmed back even a little bit, I’d likely be frolicking through this film’s cinematic fields in bare feet and a large smile plastered on my face.

La Llorona (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 6th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

La Llorona comments on current international events as well as recent Guatemalan history with confident authority, making the film a universally accessible ghost story that will haunt all who watch it for quite some time to come.

Summerland (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 31st, 2020 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Summerland is the type of motion picture that gives me hope things are going to turn out all right, not just for the characters living inside this tale, but in the here and now for all of us as well.

Relic (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 10th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Relic is a singularly magnetic motion picture that burrows under the skin leaving a lasting scar, the hushed uncertainty of the devastation left behind in its wake impossible to forget.

Homewrecker (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 9th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Homewrecker is one heck of an entertaining foray into psychologic discombobulation, everything building to a shockingly gruesome climax I honestly didn’t see coming.
