The Iron Lady (2011)

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

I’m sorry but none of that is enough, and for a woman who changed the face of international politics forever, for a figure who challenged the very notion of what a leader could be, I wanted more. More importantly, she deserved more, and on that point alone The Iron Lady is a staggering misfire difficult for me to even partially recommend.

Joyful Noise (2012)

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

When Joyful Noise does sing it hits a number of heavenly notes. Sadly it just doesn’t hit enough of them to make the movie as a whole anything more than a musical prayer that’s vexingly left unanswered.

Pariah (2011)

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

Alike’s journey is a harrowing one, filled with victories and setbacks, heartbreak and heroism, forgiveness and despair. Most of all, however, there is hope and there is love, and no matter how dark the night the light streaming from the horizon at dawn will almost certainly warm the cockles of even the most miserly heart.

Put simply, A Separation is one of the great cinematic achievements I’ve ever seen, and in my opinion is the best film I saw in 2011.

Immortals (2011)

Big, bold and loud, Tarsem Singh’s mythological adventure Immortals is a lot of fun.

Contagion (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 9th, 2011 - Movie Reviews

Contagion coughs up several scares and makes the fantastical feel unbearably believable.

Attack the Block (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 29th, 2011 - Movie Reviews

Cornish has delivered an invigorating, supercharged frolic. Attack the Block is out of this world, and to call it anything else would be a bloody man-eating crime.

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 22nd, 2011 - Movie Reviews

Captain America: The First Avenger is an engaging sensation I didn’t want to end, and when the Avengers do assemble next year, here’s hoping their initial adventure is half as thrilling a spectacle as this one is.

The Tree of Life (2011)

Terrence Malick’s fifth motion picture The Tree of Life is a breathless cinematic miracle that’s unlike anything else I’ll see in all of 2011.
