Movie Review – Brave

Alright, I’ve got to lay all cards on the table. I am a Disney fanatic. I can pretty much recite every classic animated Disney movie by heart, even The Black Cauldron. I am also a Pixar fanatic. I watch at least one of the Pixar films once a week. I laugh, I cry, I sing […]Read More

Monthly Genre Recommendations – June – Fantasy

Introduction by Anarchy Jones Fantasy in literature has always been a rich genre. As early as the Epic of Gilgamesh and including most of mankind’s earliest written documentation, this is a genre that has been used to not only entertain, but also to educate and explain things that man could not yet understand. The stories […]Read More

Movie Review – Prometheus

Film is an art form like no other. It is one of the few mediums, if not the only, that utilizes the talents of many to create one solid work. The end result of such massive collaboration can elicit a range of emotions, various criticisms, and very different personal experiences. It is a great thing […]Read More

Book Review – The Book of Alien

It’s no secret that we here at Nerdlocker are very excited about Prometheus. With the film opening so near-at-hand, we each have our own way of getting ready. A few of us are repeatedly watching Alien and Aliens, some of us are sleeping with our plush poseable facehuggers and chestbursters, and others are getting in […]Read More

Movie Review – Men in Black 3

Review by: Mark Bricker I went into Men in Black 3 with very low expectations. It’s not because I didn’t enjoy the first two Men in Black movies, in fact I thought they were quite good. It has to do with the fact that Hollywood has been dishing out too many sequels, prequels and remakes. […]Read More

Monthly Genre Recommendations – May – When Animals Attack!

Introduction by Anarchy Jones When I asked the Nerds to come up with their picks for this month’s genre, there were a few unexpected selections. I realized that the genre description of “When Animals Attack” has a different meaning to everyone. Some obvious ones are mentioned below, and some not-so obvious, but there were a […]Read More

Nerdlocker Artist Interview: Dave Beaty!

I’m very pleased to have gotten the opportunity to interview Dave Beaty. A lot of people might know him for his current work on Grifter or his previous work on Firestorm. I remember him as one of the nicest artists I have ever had the pleasure to meet. As he drew, he told us cool […]Read More

Movie Review – The Dictator

Sacha Baron Cohen has a sense of humor you either love or hate. He crosses the line and does not discriminate in the types of people, places, or ideas that he makes fun of. The man is good at what he does, and in a world full of boring and overplayed stereotypes, he somehow manages […]Read More

Movie Review – The Pirates! Band of Misfits

Aardman Animations’ fifth feature film tells the story of blissfully inept Pirate Captain, a (ahem) pirate captain and his attempt to win the coveted Pirate of the Year Award. He’s got some stiff competition and has to pull out all the stops in order to even catch up. The film is based on the first […]Read More

Monthly Genre Recommendations – April – Zombies

Wild Zero (2000) Recommended by: Kelly What do you get when you cross Night of the Living Dead with Rock ‘n’ Roll High School? You get one balls-out, crazy, in-your-face, badass, rock ‘n’ roll zombie flick! Wild Zero is the kind of movie where when the characters are kicking some zombie ass and the music […]Read More

Movie Review – The Raid: Redemption

You’ve probably heard Nerdlocker talk about The Raid: Redemption before. From initial thoughts on the trailer, to our Austin Connection review of the film after it was shown at SXSW, we’ve been huge fans of this movie. I recently had the opportunity to catch this amazing work at a local press screening, and I feel […]Read More

Movie Review – Bully

At this point it would be hard to find someone who has not heard about Bully. Between the rating fiasco, the subject matter itself, and the fact that the documentary is attached to an anti-bullying movement, everyone is talking about this movie. I couldn’t wait to see it but at the same time I knew […]Read More

Book Review – Tales From Development Hell

I’m generally not a fan of non-fiction books; I read to escape from real life. However the one exception I make is for books about film. Learning more about what I’m passionate about and reading the ins-and-outs of the business gets me excited, and this couldn’t be more true than with the book I just […]Read More

Monthly Genre Recommendations – March – Sci-fi

Moon (2009) Recommended by: Rainbolt It’s very simply a story about a guy up on the Moon. Alone. As words on a page this looks like it would be very boring. But as a film, it’s not. This is a movie with basically one set, and one main actor with the voice of Kevin Spacey […]Read More

Movie Review – John Carter

I’ll start right off by saying I loved this movie. Absolutely, one-hundred-percent loved this movie. It was exciting, funny, interesting, rich, visually stunning, and based on a really great story. Reviews of this film, and of the marketing for it, have been mixed so far. With the trailers, I didn’t fully understand what I was […]Read More
