The Matrix Resurrections (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 22nd, 2021 - Movie Reviews

On a series built upon a foundation of waking up from a false reality, learning to embrace inner truths, and crafting chosen families free from societal paradigms, The Matrix Resurrections deconstructs its mythos even as it celebrates the ideas it has always held nearest to its heart.

Raging Fire (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 12th, 2021 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Car chases. Shootouts. Brutal fights, many of them between multiple adversaries wielding clubs, knives and all sorts of slice-and-dice weaponry. It’s all here, and every bit is glorious.

Mortal Kombat (2021) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 20th, 2021 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Mortal Kombat never delivers on any of its promise, and I’m honestly not sure that if a sequel ends up getting made I’d want to take the time to watch it.

While harmless and not altogether without its minor pleasures, Vanguard is instantly forgettable, and if one wants to see Chan at the height of his creative powers I suggest re-watching the original Police Story trilogy instead of this.

The Prey (2018)

Henderson and his crack stunt team choreograph some exquisite chase-escape-fight-flight sequences, not the least of which is a suitably chaotic showdown in a secluded jungle village.

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 15th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is a highflying ballet of bloodshed and carnage that’s altogether remarkable, the adrenaline rush I got while watching it a euphoric high I wish I could bottle and sell at the neighborhood store.
