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

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Hateful Eight

Say what you will about the man himself but there is no denying that a film directed by Quentin Tarantino is always an event not to be missed. The Hateful Eight is perhaps his slowest film to date and without question his longest at a staggering three hours and two minutes. Despite the scenic route […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: In the Heart of the Sea

Usually when I have low to no expectations for a film it usually manages to be a lot better than I may have thought. In the Heart of the Sea was better than I was anticipating but not much. It’s passable entertainment with an okay plot and fantastic visuals. But that’s really it. It managed […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The End of the Tour

Despite his obvious genius, David Foster Wallace was the everyman. He was filled with immense self-doubt and distaste for his newfound fame. He wanted his work to matter but in a way without his involvement. He felt his prominence was undeserving and merely a distraction from his inevitable return to normal life. A life that […]Read More

My Favorite Horror Films of the Last Decade (2005 –

15. Zombieland (2009) Mixing a blend of comedy in the vein of Apatow humor and typical (not necessarily a bad thing) zombie- horror violence, Zombieland rose above a mediocre trailer and a genre that was tired years ago and still plagues film and television to this day. I like the zombie genre when it’s done […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Bridge of Spies

“The Cold War isn’t thawing; it is burning with a deadly heat. Communism isn’t sleeping; it is, as always, plotting, scheming, working, fighting.” -Richard Nixon Steven Spielberg directing Tom Hanks is undoubtedly a winning combination and with Bridge of Spies that tradition continues. I think in a lot of ways it is most certainly award […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Crimson Peak

“Of all ghosts, the ghosts of our old loves are the worst.” – SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE From the master of the weird, the maestro of bizarre, Guillermo del Toro brings the world his latest trip to the land of extraordinarily abnormal, Crimson Peak. This is not your typical horror film. Guillermo del Toro crafted […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Sicario

Some filmmakers seem to thrive in the stories that drag their characters through hell. These films often evoke feelings of distaste for your fellow humans and bring about questions of morality and lack thereof. Often the main character acts as the driver and we as the audience are riding “shotgun”. The protagonist is taken from […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Black Mass

With certain genres comes certain unavoidable cliches that can either make or break a film like this. The tough gangster, the constant murders and the general distaste for law enforcement are just some of these constants in the crime genre. While the commonplace doesn’t stop there it doesn’t always guarantee failure either. Much like with […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Visit

There are few names in Hollywood as synonymous with being so woefully terrible as M. Night Shyamalan. Now as a man he seems to be a genuinely terrific person so this is in no way an attack on him as a human being. But as a filmmaker it’s clear he has lost something since his […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Straight Outta Compton

“You are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge” -Straight Outta Compton In 1986 that strength was unleashed upon the world and nothing was ever the same again. Widely considered among the earliest in the genre, NWA put hardcore, West Coast rap and hip hop in general on the map. They are the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Gift

This week at the movie theater has been a rough one. First I saw this movie; it was not a gift. Then I saw FANT4STIC which I reviewed as well. Written, directed and starring Joel Edgerton. In my opinion this is not a strong start for a directorial debut. But if you were to check […]Read More
