Screams of a Winter Night (1979) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 30th, 2022 - Blu-ray and DVD

I’m not going to lie and say that Screams of a Winter Night is some long, lost horror anthology classic. It isn’t. But the film has so much go-for-broke, let’s-put-on-a-show charm that it’s not a huge deal that a lot of this doesn’t end up working particularly well.

I was never able to let myself go and enjoy all this loopy jungle madness, The Lost City coming across as too mechanically forgettable for my tastes.

X (2022)

X is a gnarly, sexually provocative thriller that juxtaposes youthful upheaval against the inevitable ravages of old age, all of it showcased with tongue firmly in cheek and middle finger proudly unfurled.

The Adam Project (2022)

Instead of taking the easy way out, the aftereffects of tragedy and loss are allowed to linger in ways atypical for genre fair like this, granting The Adam Project an extra layer of empathetic hopefulness that’s lovely.

Turning Red (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 11th, 2022 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Turning Red is a miracle of storytelling genius. It will be one of the best films of 2022. Heck, it may turn out to be one of the best I’ve seen the remainder of this decade.

The Batman (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 2nd, 2022 - Movie Reviews

There is something triumphant about Reeves’ The Batman, and I do like where the film leaves the character before the screen fades to black. But so many aspects don’t come together, each refusing to resonate no matter how much I wished otherwise.
