Luca (2021)

Some movies exist as if solely to make the viewer feel good. They’re not masterpieces. That’s Luca, and that’s wonderful.

Spirit Untamed (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 4th, 2021 - Movie Reviews

Spirit Untamed is a lot easier to respect than it is to enjoy, and unlike its predecessor, this isn’t a piece of feel-good animation I’m likely to revisit anytime soon.

Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)

Spectacularly animated and building to a heartfelt conclusion rooted in community and togetherness, Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon is a stupendously entertaining adventure.

Soul (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 23rd, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Soul ends on the perfect note, its last moments overflowing in voluminous human insights so melodious I could happily hum its climactic tune for a lifetime and likely never grow tired of hearing it.

The Croods: A New Age (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 24th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Thanks to the talented cast a lot of the humor worked for me, and as relentlessly energetic as The Croods: A New Age can be, I still spent the majority of my time watching it with a gigantic grin plastered on my face.

Scoob! (2020) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 21st, 2020 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Scoob! is a decidedly mixed bag, and while it was moderately fun to see a potential Hanna-Barbera universe take shape, this film is still too slapdash and rough around the edges to be consistently entertaining for any viewer over the age of eight or so.

Trolls World Tour (2020)

Trolls World Tour rarely allowed me to catch my breath. It even more seldomly put anything that was happening into coherent perspective.

Onward (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 5th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

It’s all a bunch of colorfully anarchic, emotionally uplifting heartfelt supernatural silliness, all of which helps make Pixar’s latest comedic adventure Onward a goofy good time I’d be excited to see again.

Frozen II (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 21st, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Frozen II is a sequel that exists to tell its own individual story and not just ride on the Oscar-winning coattails of its predecessor, watching it a continual joy that filled my heart with glee.
