Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 29th, 2006 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Few films are either as magical or as enchanting as Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth. At the same time, few fairy tales are as perverse, terrifying or as deeply disturbing.

Children of Men is a stunning powerhouse, and it is almost impossible to grasp all it is attempting to say in just a single viewing.

Volver (2006)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 17th, 2006 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Almodóvar has crafted an instant classic. Volver is miraculous, a joyous enterprise running the emotional gauntlet like no other melodrama I’ve seen in ages.

The Prestige (2006)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 20th, 2006 - Movie Reviews

In a year of so many retreads and also-rans, where much of what’s hit the multiplex looks exactly like what was there just a month ago, The Prestige offers entertainment and wonderment unlike anything else currently in theatres, and that might be Nolan’s greatest magic trick of them all.

The Grudge 2 (2006)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 13th, 2006 - Movie Reviews

All of which makes The Grudge 2 an insidious mixed bag of thrills and chills, and I’m just not sure the good elements outweigh the bad ones near enough to make watching it in a theatre worthwhile.

V for Vendetta (2005)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 17th, 2006 - Movie Reviews

V for Vendetta is a bold, unflinching portrait of a world viewers might not want to look at too closely. It is a place where the sights and sounds are so harsh and hard they make some cringe and weep for all they’ve suffered and lost.

Elizabethtown (2005)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 14th, 2005 - Movie Reviews

I can’t help but think that the vibe Elizabethtown generates and the mood it creates are both only going to get better with time.
