Nerdlocker Movie Review: It Follows

It… What is it? Not knowing what it is or what form it will take next time you encounter it is truly terrifying. What are its motivations? Seemingly existing for the singular purpose of killing those unfortunate enough to find themselves cursed, its true reason for being is never divulged. The very idea that it […]Read More

Movies You May Have Missed: The Fountain (2006)

It’s all too rare that a movie clings to you in such a way that demands further examination than simply watching the film. Sometimes a film will contain a greater purpose than the one presented at its surface. In order to see a film like this for all that it has to offer you must […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Run All Night

Liam Neeson as the weathered, beaten-down anti-hero of sorts is nothing new. Since 2010 alone he has starred in at least ten different action oriented films. So at this point a movie starring Neeson as the only man for the job is at times a bit too familiar although not altogether unwanted. To elevate this […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: CHAPPiE

When a film is a commercial success, the director of that film is suddenly burdened with an immense amount of pressure to create a worthy follow-up project. The level of expectation is often entirely too high and so the films following are seen as failures. After the highly successful release of District 9, Neill Blomkamp […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Focus

Will “Fresh Prince” Smith has been a bit incognito as of late so I was jubilant to hear about his new film, Focus. While it isn’t exactly the return I was hoping for, it will hold me over until he delivers something better and more memorable. (Independence Day 2, Will! Do it!) At the very […]Read More

Movies You May Have Missed: Cold in July (2014)

What I thought was going to be a simple home invasion film, Cold in July turned into something far more insidious and twisted than I ever imagined. Boasting wonderful performances from Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard, and especially Don Johnson, this is one not to miss. From the most visceral but briefest of incidences, a […]Read More

Movie Review: Jupiter Ascending

It seems the glory days of The Wachowskis have long since passed. These are the same people that revolutionized not only Sci-fi but film as a whole. They completely altered how to film action. Much like Steven Spielberg and Co. transformed how film utilizes computer generated imagery, The Wachowskis created a lasting masterpiece 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: Blackhat

Michael Mann has greatness in him. I’ve seen it in past efforts like Collateral and the highly engaging thriller, Heat. Blackhat isn’t terrible like some reviewers will have you believe but it’s not something that will last passed this year, this month even, maybe. I think I enjoyed it most for the fact that as […]Read More
