Yesterday (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 27th, 2019 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

The last third of Yesterday is an ineffectual slog that wastes the talents of its stars, and as breezy, inoffensively enjoyable and as adorably light as so much of this was to suddenly hear it hit so many sour notes was undeniably disappointing, my emotions gently weeping the more I keep thinking about it.

Photograph (2019)

Photograph is a beautiful snapshot of romantic longing and human understanding that’s nothing less than glorious, watching it a rapturously intimate pleasure I didn’t want to end.

The Sun is Also a Star (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 17th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

The Sun is Also a Star is definitely a case study in how a terrible ending can lead an otherwise fine motion picture down the road to disaster, and the more I continue to think about it the angrier I seem to get.

Long Shot (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 3rd, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Ultimately it is Rogen and especially Theron that make Long Shot work as well as it does…The two stars are delightful, and if they ever decide to team up again in the future I’ll certainly cast my vote stating this would be something I’d be willing to purchase a ticket to see.

[As] pure entertainment, Gracey’s energetic effort succeeds in a way that goes well beyond anything I antic pated before entering the theatre, The Greatest Showman a three-ring phenomenon the entire family is almost certain to enjoy.

Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 25th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Moonrise Kingdom has the potential to be a movie I’ll be pondering, mulling over and thinking about for the remainder of 2012. When all is said and done it might even enter into the upper echelon of the Wes Anderson canon.

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.
