Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 4th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

There is no closure to Beasts of the Southern Wild, nothing to hold on to that I felt was satisfying. I love the fire and the passion it must have taken for Zeitlin and Alibar to bring the film to life, but that wasn’t enough as far as I was concerned.

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 1st, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While not without faults, this feminist take on the classic Grimm tale is undeniably bewitching, and of 2012’s dueling adaptations, both of which ended up worthy of my attention, Snow White and the Huntsman is the fairest of the duo and the one I look forward to revisiting in the future.

The Avengers (2012)

All I can say is that I hope Whedon does return to the helm, because after this movie the thought of The Avengers assembling without his assertively assured guidance is something I have difficulty pondering.

Mirror Mirror (2012)

Tarsem directs with confidence, and while Mirror Mirror isn’t the magical ride it maybe could have been to say I left the theatre with a spring to my step and feeling happily ever after was a real possibility wouldn’t be too far off the mark.

Big, bold and loud, Tarsem Singh’s mythological adventure Immortals is a lot of fun.
