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.

Predators is a lot of fun, and as matinee entertainment, the film does deliver most of the requisite goods.

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Like the original Iron Man 2 is a movie I don’t particularly mind but don’t exactly love, either, and if I didn’t say that in so many words in regards to the first film not doing so as far as this sequel goes isn’t a mistake I plan on making twice.

Even with its simplistic plot, Avatar is a stunning achievement in next-level cinematic bravado. Watch it on the biggest screen possible. Prepare to be blown away.

As for the action, Red Cliff shows once again that when he’s working at the top of his game there is no better maestro of this sort of thing than John Woo.

The Hurt Locker (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 26th, 2009 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

This is the real deal in action theatrics, Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker a pulse-pounding dynamo that puts all of Hollywood’s meager Summer 2009 offerings to immediate shame.

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

This new Hulk might have its moments and the character might still have his angry superpowers, but that doesn’t make the film anything close to incredible.

Iron Man (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 1st, 2008 - Movie Reviews

Not to say that this inaugural adventure of Iron Man soars very high, but it does get off the ground, and as far as first chapters in what is sure to be an ongoing story is concerned, at least for right now that’s going to have to be enough.
