Greenland (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 18th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

If Roland Emmerich’s outlandishly overblown 2009 hit 2012 and Roar Uthaug’s 2015 critical darling The Wave got together and had a baby, it would probably look a lot like Ric Roman Waugh’s goofy-if-grounded Gerard Butler disaster epic Greenland.

Collateral (2004) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 15th, 2020 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Collateral has held up brilliantly. A great film at the time of its release, Michael Mann’s seductively unsettling crime thriller has to my mind emerged as one of the the 21st century’s best pieces of pop entertainment.

News of the World (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 11th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

News of the World is a robust, beautifully shot drama, and while little unexpected transpires, the characters are so richly drawn and their travels so wonderfully realized that honestly isn’t much of a problem.

The Prom (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 11th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Murphy’s joy in slapping me silly for every second of The Prom’s laborious 130 minutes was more than I could take, this laudably inclusive LGBTQ high school musical a celebratory dance I’d rather not have been invited to attend.

Songbird (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 11th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Songbird pushes buttons that feel ugly and inappropriate, all of which makes giving the film any sort of fair assessment difficult to do.

The Stand In (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 11th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

The Stand In moves through the motions with a plodding laboriousness that grows increasingly irritating, and almost all of the supporting players are never around long enough to make anything more than a passing impression.

Mank (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 4th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Mank is nothing more than a metaphorical celluloid sled of failed dreams and misguided ambition burning to ash in a fiery furnace fueled by frustratingly combustible emptiness.

Sound of Metal (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 4th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

There is a breathless sonic majesty to Darius Marder’s superb Sound of Metal that left me a discombobulated mess long after the drama had ended.

Happiest Season (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 25th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Happiest Season is a comfortingly romantic present almost guaranteed to bring its recipient joy, and all things considered in a year overflowing with humbug this small gift of holiday cheer is more than enough to satisfy.
