Kirby’s magnificence alone makes Pieces of a Woman worthy of a look.

Silent Running (1972) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 5th, 2021 - Blu-ray and DVD

Douglas Trumball’s Silent Running is a flawed classic, but that still makes it a classic.

Promising Young Woman (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 25th, 2020 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Fennell has delivered a gut-wrenching, must-see work of infuriated genius, and as painful as portions of Promising Young Woman were for me to experience, I’d happily go through the trauma of additional viewings as soon as the opportunity to do so arises.

The Midnight Sky (2020)

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

If The Midnight Sky doesn’t shine as bright as maybe it could have, there was just enough sparkle to put a happy twinkle in my eye, and even with a noted absence of fuel Clooney’s latest still achieves emotionally cathartic liftoff.

The Dark and the Wicked (2020) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 22nd, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

The Dark and the Wicked isn’t a piece of light and fluffy horror entertainment. There are no rainbows here, Bryan Bertino’s latest more than living up to its title as being both agonizingly dark and paralyzingly wicked.

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.
