Taken 2 (2012)

Taken 2 is a total hoot. Problem is, it’s not meant to be one.

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.

House at the End of the Street (2012)

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

Early on House at the End of the Street had me intrigued. By the midsection I was completely captivated by it. But by the end? By that point I was ready to throw things at the screen and howl my disapproval at how wildly off the rails this Hitchcockian enterprise in suspense and terror had suddenly become.

Arbitrage (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 14th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

For as confident as Jarecki’s handling of it all might be, and as breezily paced as Arbitrage is, it’s just too hard to get past the inherent sense of dramatic déjà vu that permeates the production.

The Apparition (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 24th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The Apparition is a tediously uninspired ghostly mess, and in the cold light of day the wonder isn’t why it took so long for Warner Bros to put it into general release, but instead why they felt the need to do so at all.

Premium Rush (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 24th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Premium Rush is worth the price of admission and then some, this flick a two-wheeled thrill ride I can’t wait to see again.

Compliance (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 17th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

It’s bravura filmmaking, and without question Compliance is one of the finest features I’ll likely see in all of 2012.
