The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 19th, 2013 - Movie Reviews

Thing is, Lawrence doesn’t allow herself to go over the top into cartoonish histrionics, holding her own in every scene no matter what’s going on or who it is she’s sharing the frame with. The last image is all about her, the film closing on a fantastic transformative sight that showcases all who Katniss has been with all she is about to be become.

Iron Man 3 (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 3rd, 2013 - Movie Reviews

It’s great, filled with superb set pieces and moments, not the least of which is a dynamic attack on the Stark mansion that had the majority of the preview audience sitting on the edge of their seats holding their breath, and I can’t say I was ever bored by anything that was going on. At the same time, there is an almost television-like efficiency that can grow stale, nothing ever popping out or calling attention to itself in a way I could ever say was entirely memorable.

“Safety Not Guaranteed” – Interview with Colin Trevorrow

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 7th, 2012 - Film Festivals Interviews

“Safety Not Guaranteed is personal. It is intimate. It is about the emotional needs the idea of time travel satisfies. I feel it is an honest movie that speaks to what people are going through in their everyday lives. It doesn’t feel manufactured.”
– Colin Trevorrow

Men in Black 3 (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 25th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

What is shocking is just how entertaining Men in Black 3 turns out to be, and even though as sequels go it’s highly unnecessary, that didn’t make the smile on my face after watching it invisible.

Battleship (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Battleship is pure cheese, and while that doesn’t make it good that also doesn’t make it a disaster, and while the proceedings are certainly waterlogged beyond repair that doesn’t mean the vessel itself is in danger of sinking.

The Avengers (2012)

All I can say is that I hope Whedon does return to the helm, because after this movie the thought of The Avengers assembling without his assertively assured guidance is something I have difficulty pondering.

Iron Man 2 (2010)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 7th, 2010 - Movie Reviews

Like the original Iron Man 2 is a movie I don’t particularly mind but don’t exactly love, either, and if I didn’t say that in so many words in regards to the first film not doing so as far as this sequel goes isn’t a mistake I plan on making twice.
