Avatar: The Way of Water builds to a final hour of action and suspense that blew me through the theater’s back wall.

Coraline (2009) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 13th, 2022 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Coraline is the visually magical film that started it all for Laika back in 2009, and it’s safe to say director Henry Selick’s delectably sinister animated marvel hasn’t lost an ounce of its charm.

Of all of the Laika films that the studio has released since 2009’s Coraline, I think ParaNorman has aged the best.

Strange World is a gloriously weird adventure that’s like the ungainly love child of a Dr. Seuss storybook melded with Fantastic Voyage that revels in the goofy cosmic sensibilities of a random episode of the classic 1960s television series Lost in Space.

Coogler aims high with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and when the director hits his target, it’s right in the absolute center of the bull’s-eye. But the misses add up.

The School for Good and Evil (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 19th, 2022 - Movie Reviews

Feig’s film is nowhere near as fully realized or as creatively satisfying as I kept hoping it was going to be, making The School for Good and Evil a mixed bag of magic tricks.
