Wish (2023)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 22nd, 2023 - Movie Reviews

The magic spell Wish casts is minimal at best, and it only lasts about as long as it takes for the end credits to complete their crawl.

Trolls Band Together (2023)

I will give Trolls Band Together this much: it is the first film in the series that did not give me a headache.

The Marvels (2023)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 10th, 2023 - Movie Reviews

The Creator (2023)

But it is the masterful human saga at The Creator’s center that makes it special, and even if this story isn’t especially innovative, the emotions fueling the action are so intimately satisfying that they lingered with me for hours afterward.

The Flash (2023) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 29th, 2023 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

The Flash plays a little better the second time around, but I still found it’s main issues impossible to overlook. It’s a mixed bag, entertaining in spurts, but never consistently.
