The Incredibles is just that, well, incredible, and here’s hoping people go and see just that for themselves at their first opportunity to do so.

The Grudge works, and I’ve got the sweaty palms to prove it.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 10th, 2004 - Movie Reviews

Resident Evil: Apocalypse is pretty awful, and if this ends up being game over for the budding franchise I wouldn’t be at all surprised.

Not altogether shocking, Alien vs. Predator is an unreviewable motion picture.

The Manchurian Candidate (2004)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 30th, 2004 - Movie Reviews

While this The Manchurian Candidate doesn’t leave the same chilling residue as Frankenheimer’s opus, this version is still a surprisingly unnerving procedural.

Spider-Man 2 (2004)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2004 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

What’s amazing isn’t that Sam Raimi’s follow-up to his 2002 smash is a lot of fun, but instead that it might just be the greatest superhero comic book adventure film I’ve frankly ever seen. Spider-Man 2 is superb.

Mean Girls (2004)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 30th, 2004 - Movie Reviews

But with Mean Girls Waters and Fey do what they can to show scrubbing off one’s humanity for a mechanical glassy-eyed façade is something that should be avoided. In the end, life in plastic just isn’t worth the effort.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 19th, 2004 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

It’s a beautiful screenplay overflowing with moments of such sudden, tight-fisted insanity that frequently knocked my socks off, all of its coupled with a poignant purity that’s beyond terrific. As early-year movies go, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind isn’t just a surprise, it’s a bona fide cinematic miracle I’m not ever going to forget.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 16th, 2003 - Movie Reviews

Ultimately, if The Return of the King isn’t quite the thrilling conclusion we were all hoping for, it is still very much a rousingly successful culmination to what may be the most satisfying cinematic trilogy of all time.
