Bad Education (2004)

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

Bad Education is a brazen, ambisexual noir that embraces the conventions of the genre while at the same time shattering them with explicit wickedness.

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.

Spider-Man 2 (2004)

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.

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.

City of God (2002)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 17th, 2003 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

City of God is a story about the nature and structure of continuous poverty and violence and the effects that combination has upon a society free to govern, protect and rule itself. It is Cidade de Deus’ tale, and Rocket, Lil’ Zé, Benny and the rest are only brief chapters in its narrative.
