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.

Valley Girl (2020) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 6th, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

This Valley Girl musical remake was a lot easier to watch the second time around. I’m still a little frustrated by the film, but not nearly as egregiously so as I was earlier this year.

The High Note is so much fun to watch any issues I have keep evaporating into the ether almost as if they never existed in the first place.

Military Wives (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 22nd, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Cattaneo’s latest was a balm for my soul, injecting a dollop of joy into my heart while a happy tear or two ran down the side of my cheek. I liked Military Wives, and I’m happy to sing its praises as vociferously as I can.

Valley Girl (2020)

I found Valley Girl, like, totally disappointing, an unexpected turn of events that’s grody to the max, for sure.

Trolls World Tour (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 10th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Trolls World Tour rarely allowed me to catch my breath. It even more seldomly put anything that was happening into coherent perspective.

Cats (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 19th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Cats might be a mess, but it’s a one-of-a-kind incredibly memorable mess (for better and for worse), and for all I know that’s entirely by design.
