Nerdlocker Movie Review: Underwater

“What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams.” -Werner Herzog It’s that time of year again; the time when Hollyweird takes inventory of their catalog of leftovers and try to salvage something resembling a profit. Usually what they find just shy of spoiling is […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Cloverfield Paradox

If Alien and Black Mirror had a baby they would name it The Cloverfield Paradox. While both of those titles are admirable franchises to aspire to emulate, when there is zero identity of its own which Paradox has almost none, you start to wonder why you’re watching this movie when you can just turn on […]Read More

Alien: Covenant Movie Review

Back in March on the opening night of SXSW, Ridley Scott brought along the primary cast as well as around 30 minutes of footage from Alien: Covenant. During that presentation, which I wrote about HERE if you’d like to read that, Ridley made it clear that the character of David, portrayed stunningly by Michael Fassbender, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: ALIEN: Covenant

In 1979 a horror classic was born and since its inception nearly every modern sci-fi or horror film has been influenced by ALIEN. After the stellar sequel ALIENS continued the mind blowing that ALIEN started, it’s been nothing less than disappointing in the world of ALIEN. Alien 3 was meddled with so much by the […]Read More

LV-426 / ALIEN DAY Is here!!

Yes folks Its here! On April 26th, we celebrate our 2nd “Alien Day.” This day was selected because in the original Ridley Scott “Alien” film, the crashed Engineer ship with the face hugger eggs is on planet LV-426 and 4/26 equals April 26th. We couldn’t be happier. The “Alien” franchise has grown immensely in 35 […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: LIFE

Isolation in space is not a new concept, but it’s one that has always intrigued me. No help, no matter the circumstances. That is just tempting fate and what a thrill it can be if done right. Life is by no means original in ideas but regardless it is a thrilling, bloody, damn good time. […]Read More

SXSW First Look – Alien: Covenant

Opening night of SXSW Film is always a time of incredible movie moments and memories over the years. This year’s was no exception. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Alien, a personal favorite and all-around masterpiece of cinematic horror, in a theater on a few occasions but tonight’s was different. Tonight, Ridley Scott was in the […]Read More

Movie Review: Black Sea

Laced with convenient storytelling Black Sea is entertaining, but laughable and forgettable. As the lights dimmed and the movie began I thought, “It’s been a long time since we’ve had a great submarine film.” And it seems the wait for the next great one is ongoing. It kept me occupied but as the end credits began […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Counselor

A little fish in a big pond; this film is one of the most extreme visions of that very simple and innocent saying. This is the perfect definition of being out of one’s element. As a guy I know all too well that you can’t simply jump into the cold water, you have to go […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Gravity

Unfortunately when a film is this hyped up the final product is almost never what it’s been said to be. But on rare occasions a film with hype fulfills everything it promised to be and Gravity is a prime example of this. This film is, quite simply put, mesmerizing. This is what going to the […]Read More

Movie Review – Prometheus

I know what I’m supposed to say. But I just can’t do it. I did not like Prometheus. Admittedly I did not believe director Ridley Scott’s admission that this movie was not an Alien prequel. I popped on my 3D glasses over my normal everyday eye-wear (god I hate 3D) with the idea that I […]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

Austin Connection Movie Review – Prometheus

Well the time has come for the much anticipated film from Ridley Scott, Prometheus.  The question I keep asking myself is, “Is it a worthy addition to my beloved Alien canon?” The answer is a cautious yes.  I really liked this film, but I didn’t love it. I also respect its ambition. Prometheus puts forth […]Read More

Austin Connection Movie Review – Prometheus

This was a haunted-house-with-a-gorilla picture set in outer space. It reached out, grabbed you, and squeezed your stomach; it was more gripping than entertaining, but a lot of people didn’t mind. They thought it was terrific, because at least they had felt something: they’d been brutalized….. Yet there was a backlash against Alien – many […]Read More
