Proximity (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 22nd, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Proximity is a visually striking disappointment, and as far as close encounters go this is one I’m not going to be ruminating on in any sort of detail anytime soon.

War of the Worlds (2005) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2020 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Holy freaking cow the technical aspects of this 4K Ultra HD version of Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds are nothing less than dazzling. From an audio-visual standpoint, this disc is perfect.

V: The Final Battle (1984) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 15th, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

V: The Final Battle is worth a look. While undeniably somewhat disappointing, it’s still a fun bit of retro television science fiction that sometimes takes some fairly shocking narrative risks that were well ahead of their time.

Underwater (2020)

Underwater gets the job done. I liked it a lot. Heck, I’m likely to head to the theatre and see it again before January ends.

Maybe I’ll not feel so sad after I give The Rise of Skywalker a second look.

Paradise Hills (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 1st, 2019 - Movie Reviews

While there’s the high probability that Paradise Hills will grow on me on re-watch, as magnificent as the visual elements are and as strong as the social commentary might be, that’s not near enough to overcome the places where this motion picture falls disappointingly flat.

Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

Terminator: Dark Fate is a well-made action film many are going to enjoy quite a bit, which likely means Sarah Connor will be back busting cybernetic heads before any of us know it.

Gemini Man (2019)

Gemini Man is the type of high-concept idea that were a dime a dozen back in the 1990s.

Ad Astra (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 20th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Ad Astra is a daring bit of storytelling subterfuge that will only grow in resonance as time goes by, the final pieces of its complicated puzzle an emotional moonshot of catharsis and fury unlike anything I could have imagined trying to fit together beforehand.
