Her (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 20th, 2013 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Her a Timely Spectacle of Intimacy, Heartbreak and Understanding Spike Jonze is as singular and as original a filmmaker as there is working today. The man behind such iridescent achievements as Being John Malkovich and Adaptation, the idiosyncratic filmmaker has outdone himself with the beguiling, multifaceted science fiction-influenced love story Her. Set in a Los […]

Ender’s Game (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 1st, 2013 - Movie Reviews

Ender’s Game looks incredible, and the cast does their collective best, but the bad taste left in my mouth after it came to an end was unavoidably loathsome.

Elysium (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 9th, 2013 - Movie Reviews

While the messaging is on the heavy-handed side, those who agree with Blomkamp’s statements are going to eat up his commentary on class warfare and our collective descent into a dehumanized society by the bucket loads, the filmmaker constructing arguably the most anti one-percent motion picture financed by a major Hollywood studio in recent memory.

After Earth (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 31st, 2013 - Movie Reviews

Without a doubt, this big budget high-concept science fiction spectacle is Summer 2013’s first unmitigated disaster, and seeing how anyone involved creatively could walk away from this calamity unscathed is way beyond me.

Oblivion (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 19th, 2013 - Movie Reviews

It’s hard for me to say that Oblivion didn’t keep me entertained, and even though after it was over I wanted to pick all 126 minutes to pieces, while I was sitting in the theatre I was more than content to soak in the visuals and not worry about anything else.

Looper (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 28th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Looper is Grade A sci-fi entertainment. Johnson’s film works, and like all great time travel epics, this is one adventure we’re all going to be thinking about far into the unknowable future.

Dredd (2012)

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

Dredd didn’t do much for me, and while my final judgment is hardly as negative as it could have been, that doesn’t mean my passing of sentence labeling the film as forgettable is an endorsement people should purchase a ticket to see it in a theatre.

Robot & Frank (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 31st, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While Robot & Frank doesn’t exactly go anyplace all that unexpected, how Schreier handles the material and the emotions he brought out of me certainly were.

Total Recall (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2012 - Movie Reviews

There is something so rudimentary about all of the running, jumping, falling, kicking and punching, something so tired about all the crashes, booms and bangs, the resulting two-hours of this new Total Recall have an oddly antiseptic quality which makes the subsequent film instantly, and somewhat ironically, forgettable.
