Safe (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Yet Yakin’s film embraces its own central lunacy. Better, Safe takes the time to craft a story that, within the confines of its idiotically over-the-top world, is both believable and character-driven.

The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 13th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The Cabin in the Woods is a winner. I can’t wait to watch it again, and I’m sure this will become an annual staple for re-watch every Halloween.

The Raid: Redemption (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 30th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While the action choreography is impressive, emotionally I’m finding it difficult to care, The Raid: Redemption never quite connecting on anything more than a purely visceral level and nothing more.

Seeking Justice (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

If only Seeking Justice was even moderately worthwhile. It has a rudimentary made-for-Cable feel that, while certainly not off-putting, is still rather laughable.

Sound of Noise (2010)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 9th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Sound of Noise is nothing short of a cacophony of sound, fury, silence, ingenuity and inspiration, the entire plot revolving around a scenario that’s as silly as it is absurd.

Kill List (2011)

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

Kill List isn’t an easy film to categorize, to put into a mass-market box general audiences will quickly recognize. But it gets the job done and then some, and as an excursion into debilitating emotional-based familial terror I doubt we’ll see its like at any point throughout the rest of 2012.

The Hurt Locker (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 26th, 2009 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

This is the real deal in action theatrics, Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker a pulse-pounding dynamo that puts all of Hollywood’s meager Summer 2009 offerings to immediate shame.

Tell No One (2006)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 11th, 2008 - Movie Reviews

Tell No One is the type of thriller viewers won’t want to keep quiet about. In fact, if they have any sense they’re going to be screaming to see it again.

No Country for Old Men (2007)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 9th, 2007 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Within the framework of this film it truly is No Country for Old Men, and as that harsh realization presents itself the only emotion left is a form of quietly overpowering grief.
