Nerdlocker Movie Review: Ted 2

Seth MacFarlane movies really all come down to one thing; do you like Seth MacFarlane? If your answer is yes then I definitely recommend giving Ted 2 a chance. However, if your answer is no, then turn the other way, do not pass go, do not collect $200. Much like the first movie, Ted 2 […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Jurassic World

“We could never have loved the earth so well if we had had no childhood in it.” ~George Eliot, The Mill on the Floss, 1860 When I think of my childhood a few things come to mind; Super Nintendo, Nickelodeon cartoons and Jurassic Park to name a few. At the wee age of four years […]Read More

A Tribute to Goodfellas: A 25 Year-Old Masterpiece

“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster.” -Henry Hill (1955) It brings about questions of morality and acceptability… On September 21, 1990, the Martin Scorsese directed classic Goodfellas was unleashed. Now 25 years later its impact and legacy is still influencing pop culture to this day. Careers were […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review – Avengers: Age of Ultron

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. This is the kind of movie that everyone has already decided if they can’t wait to see it or they can’t wait until they stop hearing about it. I know my little review of this already highly successful sequel isn’t really going to change any minds. I […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Killer Legends

Most stories, no matter how far-fetched contain at least some grain of truth. This is especially true of urban legends. The psychopath with a hook for a hand, razor blades in Halloween candy, the killer of babysitters; these are all cautionary tales to warn the youth of their precarious ways and new found responsibilities. As […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Dead Lands

The grittier the better and The Dead Lands is as violent and fierce as they come. Fueled with the simple purpose of revenge and honor, this is a highly focused thriller with fantastic fight choreography and even some unexpectedly powerful moments. Their actions are graphically abhorrent and so for a connection to form we must […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Furious Seven

At this point in the franchise I don’t think it’s exactly a mystery what each new chapter will entail. It’s more of the same here with fast cars, over-the-top action sequences, cheesy dialogue and of course lots of scantily clad women shaking their ass to some dime a dozen pop song. These are the usual […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Get Hard

Get Hard, even the title is a dick joke. Dick jokes compose about 90% of the material in the movie; it’s sad really. The best way to describe the over usage of genitalia humor is this; it’s as if they believe they have discovered an untapped well full of crass penile themed comedy and they […]Read More

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
