Case de mi Padre (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

I respected Casa de mi Padre far more than I enjoyed it, director and “SNL” veteran Matt Piedmont never striking the right balance between playing things straight while still wink-winking at the audience as if everyone knows just how absurd all of this is.

Jeff, Who Lives at Home (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The last moments speak to the concepts of family, brotherhood and marriage in a way that touched my heart and also tickled my funny bone, and while Jeff, Who Lives at Home isn’t perfect these precious final minutes were, and for my money that’s all that matters.

Friends with Kids (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 9th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

If not for a final scene that left me vacillating between perplexed, bewildered, enchanted and annoyed (not necessarily in the that order), I’d probably be calling Jennifer Westfeldt’s directorial debut Friends with Kids an early contender for one of 2012’s best films.

Sound of Noise (2010)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 9th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Sound of Noise is nothing short of a cacophony of sound, fury, silence, ingenuity and inspiration, the entire plot revolving around a scenario that’s as silly as it is absurd.

Attack the Block (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 29th, 2011 - Movie Reviews

Cornish has delivered an invigorating, supercharged frolic. Attack the Block is out of this world, and to call it anything else would be a bloody man-eating crime.

Another Year (2010)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 4th, 2011 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Another Year is an experience unlike almost any other. The world it showcases might be in London, might be filled with British customs and mannerisms, but what it is talking about in regards to friendship, family and life is stunningly universal.

Somewhere (2010)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 22nd, 2010 - Movie Reviews

Somewhere is a hypnotic series of brief vignettes of a father trying to decide who he is and what the next step to being a better human being is, all of this seen through the eyes of a youngster wise beyond her years.

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 […]

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 24th, 2009 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

The new political satire In the Loop is the best film I’ve seen so far this year.
