Nerdlocker Movie Review: Ghostbusters

During the lead-up for this movie it seemed to split everyone who cared into one of two camps; you hate the idea or you love it. What many failed to consider was a third option where people like myself waited patiently and knew the movie might be good, it might be bad, it might even […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Infiltrator

“I believe that the war on drugs is a tragically misplaced use of resources – an immoral venture that produces far more suffering than it alleviates.” -David Harsanyi The 80s was a tumultuous time in America as drugs became the new currency. Throw a rock in any direction and you either hit a dealer, a […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Purge: Election Year

The Purge is a silly idea but nonetheless an interesting concept to imagine as a reality. The first had promise but with some of the worst characters in recent memory it fell well short of being even remotely decent. Not to mention the idea of the mayhem that we never get to see taking place […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Conjuring 2

Sequels often mean cash grabs with little to no thought about how or why a sequel is even necessary. Story is usually the last thing a studio cares about when it comes to a second installment of a profitable franchise. A prime example of this is The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle which was anything but stellar. […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: X-Men: Apocalypse

When a single player is making three-pointer after three-pointer it’s generally a rule of thumb to continue to feed the hot hand. Eventually that “hand” will cool and threes will come less frequent. Century Fox revamped their X-Men universe with Matthew Vaughn’s stellar prequel/sequel First Class. Continuing with these younger characters, Days of Future Past […]Read More

Captain America: Civil War – A Nerdlocker Review

“Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved.” The year of superhuman vs. superhuman got off to a bit of a rocky start with the Bat and Sups but luckily MARVEL is here to save the day. Captain America’s third film is the most ambitious entry yet and without question the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Green Room

Jeremy Saulnier is a director that believes it’s better to go for it than wonder what would have happened if you had. His aim is to entertain in the most visceral ways cinema will allow. After brief introductions to the main characters, this cannon explodes with inordinate amounts of bloody mayhem. Green Room is a […]Read More

It’s God vs Man! It’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of

The battle of battles was to be something glorious but instead we’re left with something barely passable as good. This newest addition to the plethora of superhero films has a lot going for it, enough that I would recommend seeing it at least once. It was never going to live up to expectations but you […]Read More

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE: Reviewed!

When Cloverfield was released in 2008 it appeared to be just another monster movie done with headache-inducing shaky-cam; in other words it should have been forgotten before the first weekend of its premiere. But thanks to creative filmmaking by then first time director Matt Reeves and J.J. Abrams at his side this turned into some […]Read More

Triple 9 Movie Review

This is by no means an original concept but a great movie doesn’t have to be the most unique thing under the sun (although it doesn’t hurt). This is familiar territory presented in a way that takes the already seen and makes it feel just as fresh and entertaining as ever. A definite strength to […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The VVitch

Slow and steady wins the race here as The Witch is more psychological horror than anything that could be considered run-of-the-mill. As much as this is about an actual witch it’s just as much about the idea of a witch whether one is actually terrorizing this family or not. The very idea of the possibility […]Read More

DEADPOOL Movie review!

I think it’s safe to say that more often than not, hype isn’t the greatest thing for a movie. It can create unrealistic expectations and can leave a lot of people with nothing but disappointment regardless if the film was in fact well made. However sometimes, in more rare occasions, the film can reach the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Lazer Team

After raising a record breaking $2.6 million on IndieGoGo, the studio Rooster Teeth, creators of the longest-running web series Red vs Blue have brought the world its first feature length film, Lazer Team. This is a film replete with talent and obvious potential for future endeavors and those involved will at the very least strive […]Read More

This Nerd’s Most Anticipated Films of 2016

This is by no means every single film I want to see this year. Quite frankly this list is already too long so to add more is just crazy. Not to mention that some films haven’t announced release dates for this year and honestly I’m not aware of every film intended to be released in […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Revenant

Far too rare is it that a film of this caliber comes along. Even in the midst of awards season a film like this stands above the rest as a testament to true craftsmanship and perseverance despite budget issues, time constraints and grueling filming locations. The Revenant is a film that will be admired from […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Spring

Spring is at the very least, interesting. A bit difficult to follow at times but ultimately a unique and slow-burning effort that is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Featuring relative unknowns as its starring cast and a directing team of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead who despite a few small, mostly unheard of films are […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Concussion

I couldn’t help but compare this as a lesser version of The Insider starring Russell Crowe. While the intention of each film is wholly different the premise of a single man going against a large corporation, a sort of David v. Goliath situation, is very much the same. A whistleblower with knowledge that could damage […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Big Short

A film about the mid-2000’s credit and housing bubble collapse shouldn’t be this entertaining and enthralling and most surprisingly this damn hilarious. But if you create a movie with this subject and Adam McKay at the wheel and a cast this insanely talented you can make any subject fascinating. The Big Short has the benefit […]Read More
