Ron’s Gone Wrong (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 15th, 2021 - Movie Reviews

Ron’s Gone Wrong’s points are seldom made with any certainty, and everything builds to a strange conclusion that comes perilously close to being the literal definition of “mixed messaging.”

The Addams Family 2 (2021)

I did not like The Addams Family 2. I did not like it at all. And that’s all I have to say on the matter.

Luca (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 17th, 2021 - Movie Reviews

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)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 3rd, 2021 - Movie Reviews

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)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 10th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

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