Transcendence (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 18th, 2014 - Movie Reviews

That Transcendence doesn’t ultimately work is decidedly a problem but that doesn’t make the experience of watching it any less riveting, and as failures go this is arguably one I’ll be thinking about and pondering for many months to come.

House at the End of the Street (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 21st, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Early on House at the End of the Street had me intrigued. By the midsection I was completely captivated by it. But by the end? By that point I was ready to throw things at the screen and howl my disapproval at how wildly off the rails this Hitchcockian enterprise in suspense and terror had suddenly become.

Cosmopolis (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 17th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Cosmopolis may be a mess, but it’s still something of a glorious one, and for those willing to take the ride they’ll have ridden shotgun in a journey they’re unlikely to forget anytime soon.

ParaNorman (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 17th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Spirited ParaNorman a Ghoulish Delight In the town of Blithe Hollow, 11-year-old Norman Babcock (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee) has a gift. Not that it’s one his parents Sandra (Leslie Mann) and Perry (Jeff Garlin) approve of, or something that is teenage sister Courtney (Anna Kendrick) finds remotely cool. Only the overly enthusiastic Neil (Tucker Albrizzi) […]

The Bourne Legacy (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 10th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

It’s all a great deal of fun, but there is also no avoiding that The Bourne Legacy, an expansion of the universe begun with The Bourne Identity, does feel a bit inconsequential.

The Woman in the Fifth (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 15th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

The Woman in the Fifth is as coldly obtuse and emotionally distant as anything I’ve had the misfortune to come across this year.

Prometheus (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 8th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Who are we? Where do we come from? Where do we go from here? Are we alone in the universe? These are just a few of the questions Prometheus asks, the end product not so much reaching for answers as it is more interested in reigniting the cooling embers of an age-old debate.

The Raven (2012)

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

McTeigue’s thriller is a massive missed opportunity, The Raven leaving my tell-tale-heart wanting and to the idea of ever watching it again in the future I can boil my feelings down to a single word: Nevermore.

Sound of My Voice (2011)

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

Sound of My Voice is haunting me. I find myself mulling over various segments in a way that has dug under my skin in some sort of uncomfortably luscious fashion, burrowing its way into the very marrow of my bones.
