Nerdlocker Movie Review: BEAST

“I’m not afraid to die. I just don’t want to be there when it happens.” – Woody Allen As a movie junkie you can begin to read movie trailers pretty accurately. There are exceptions of course. Unfortunately those exceptions can go either way. A trailer can be pieced together haphazardly making an otherwise decent enough […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Bodies Bodies Bodies

“Better to have an enemy who slaps you in the face than a friend who stabs you in the back.” – unknown This is the kind of movie that really frustrates me. My overall opinion of Bodies Bodies Bodies is that it just wasn’t for me. What’s frustrating is I’m fully aware of why most […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: P R E Y

“Lions are born knowing they are predators. Antelopes understand they are the prey. Humans are one of the few creatures on Earth given the choice.” – Patrick H.T. Doyle Much like the Terminator franchise, the Predator series has been a long and torrid affair of, at best, subpar entries since its original and far superior […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: NOPE

“Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.” – Arthur C. Clarke If you would have told me at the peak of Key & Peele that one of its stars would one day be one of the most sought after horror creators I likely wouldn’t […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Thor: Love and Thunder

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why.” – Mark Twain I have a feeling Thor: Love and Thunder is going to be yet another divisive entry into the MCU. There will be those of us that know it’s another quality entry […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Elvis

“You only pass through this life once, you don’t come back for an encore.” – Elvis Presley Rock ‘n Roll is known for many things. Its more notorious traits include the darker side of things like drugs, sex and alienation. These aspects of the lifestyle of a rockstar are as ingrained into the mythos as […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Black Phone

“I believe the only way to reform people is to kill them.” – Carl Panzram What is it about serial killers that we find so fascinating? Is it the excitement in living vicariously through someone else as they carry out heinous acts of villainy that we would never dare attempt in our real lives? Or […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Lightyear

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson It was pointed out to me the last time we saw some Pixar magic on the big screen was March of 2020 with Onward. Although its theatrical run was short-lived for obvious reasons, it was met […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Jurassic World: Dominion

“Dinosaurs may be extinct from the face of the planet, but they are alive and well in our imaginations.” – Steve Miller This franchise has gone the way of actual dinosaurs, extinct. Franchises like Mission: Impossible have the unique distinction of improving upon itself with each new entry. Jurassic Park and all of its subsequent […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Bob’s Burgers Movie

“Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller Who would have ever thought that a little ol’ cartoon about a burger flipper and his family could be seen as inspirational? I’m not exactly saying it is but to watch this fictional family find its way as a unit […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Top Gun: Maverick

“Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.” – Veronica Roth Thirty-five years passed before the sci-fi classic Blade Runner got its much deserved and equally ground breaking sequel, Blade Runner 2049. Before anyone saw how tremendous 2049 is, there was understandably […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Northman

“Revenge is the raging fire that consumes the arsonist.” – Max Lucado We were promised Robert Eggers with a more sizable budget and we’ve been given The Northman. I can tell you this, money well spent. I’ll just get this out of the way now, The Northman is (so far) the best film of 2022. […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: AmbuLAnce

“Los Angeles gives one the feeling of the future more strongly than any city I know of. A bad future too, like something out of Fritz Lang’s feeble imagination.” – Henry Miller Ah, Michael Benjamin Bay – my feelings toward you sway and dip like the ocean in a hurricane. Sometimes, basically the entire Transformersera, […]readmore
