Frankenweenie (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 5th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Burton’s Frankenweenie a Monstrously Delightful Resurrection Frankenweenie isn’t so much an extended version of director Tim Burton’s famed 1984 short film of the same name as it is a reinvention of it. Taking the idea of the original (young boy loses his dog in a tragic accident only to bring him back to life Mary […]

Hotel Transylvania (2012)

While I’m sure younger kids might get a kick out of Hotel Transylvania, I can’t suggest families check-in at a theatre for a 90-minute stay.

ParaNorman (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 17th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The moral of this story is universal and, especially in a heated election season filled with double-speak, specious innuendo and outright lies, everyone everywhere should listen to.

Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012)

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

Ice Age: Continental Drift isn’t very good, and if a fifth adventure ever ends up being made here’s hoping it follows in the footsteps of the other odd-numbered entries in the series and brings back the good-natured fun this fourth effort lacks.

Brave is, in a word, beautiful, and I will just leave things at that.

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 8th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Madagascar 3, for all its chaos, for all its weirdly absurdist flights of fancy, still becomes the most relatable, dare I say the most human, of the trilogy, something I never would have expected before the movie started.

The Pirates! Band of Misfits may not be Aardman’s best, but that still makes it better than just about anything else out there for kids and for families, my hearty Aar! of affirmation undeniably boisterous.

Toy Story 3 (2010)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 18th, 2010 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Toy Story 3 a Timeless Adventure I think we’ve all had that one toy we can never forget. For me, it was a stuffed bear unoriginally named “Teddy.” I adored the teeny-weeny bundle of brown fluff, and even though as the years went by he came to be missing an eye and was sporting more […]

WALL•E (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 27th, 2008 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

WALL•E is so unlike anything else Pixar has ever done I’m not even sure where to begin.
