Mega Time Squad (2018)

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

Mega Time Squad is a lot of fun, this nutty little New Zealand effort a gonzo charmer I hope people take the time to see.

Kin (2018)

I keep trying to convince myself that I liked the science fiction road trip suspense-thriller Kin more than I actually did.

The Darkest Minds (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2018 - Movie Reviews

There’s a lot to applaud about The Darkest Minds, just not enough to believe audiences will give it the type of look it is going to need to need for 20th Century Fox to continue to adapt Bracken’s books anytime in the immediate future.

The Endless (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The Endless goes places that are both eerily unexpected and emotionally affecting, the all-encompassing monstrous beauty of this spellbinding sci-fi thriller impossible to understate.

A Quiet Place (2018)

A Quiet Place is close to perfect, this monstrously entertaining chiller a nightmare-inducing smash I’m going to be screaming the praises of for many years to come.

Ready Player One (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 28th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

While a step up from Cline’s book, and while Spielberg does make a number of attempts to comment and dissect many of the more noxious elements regarding gender and race that are found inside the story, Ready Player One never seems to be fully able to reconcile any of its major themes in ways that aren’t either condescending or offensive.

The Cloverfield Paradox (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 7th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

The audacity of a Netflix premiere a little over two hours after a Super Bowl trailer presentation aside, there’s precious little about The Cloverfield Paradox that rises to the same heights as the previous two entries in the anthology series soared to, making this one more of a uniquely weird curiosity than it is anything compellingly substantive.

Reset (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Reset works, there’s really nothing else to say, this ticking clock thriller a timely leap into the human abyss that proves once again a parent’s love for their child is as undying as it is also potentially unstoppable.

The Fate of the Furious (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 13th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

The Fate of the Furious will appease longtime fans of the series, the sequel just well made enough that the fact this franchise’s tank is starting to get perilously close to empty doesn’t feel as big a problem as it honestly should. Personally, I am getting a little tired of it all, and while I appreciated and thrilled to a number of moments, and while I’d honestly love to see a spin-off adventure featuring Johnson and Statham and no one else, I just as genuinely am not so certain I’m up for two more of these films.
