Knives Out (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 27th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Rian Johnson’s marvelous who-done-it (and how’d-they-do-it) all-star murder mystery Knives Out is more than just a witty modern-day riff on a familiar Agatha Christie-like scenario.

The Good Liar (2019)

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

Because Condon and Hatcher don’t drop any hints or noticeable clues as to what is going on this character-driven mystery comes perilously close to transforming into a ‘70s-style exploitation thriller for the AARP set, which might have been fine had I felt The Good Liar earned such a pivotal change in tone.

The Report (2019)

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

Burns has delivered a pulse-pounding procedural I could not resist, and I can’t help but think that audiences of all political persuasions will end up feeling the same just as long as they can put their differences aside in order to give The Report a look.

Charlie’s Angels is a celebration of diversity and empowerment that had me grinning like a happy 10-year-old.

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.

Black and Blue (2019)

I walked out of the promo screening a little angry, disappointed that Taylor’s Black and Blue never lived up to the potential it so deftly showcased for much of its 108-minute running time.

Trick (2019)

Trick isn’t much of a Halloween treat, and like a sour apple stuffed with razor blades washing the bad taste of this one out of my mouth is going to be difficult to do.

Gemini Man (2019)

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