Nerdlocker Movie Review: Kodachrome

Kodachrome is a great example of a road well-traveled still providing relevance. A repeated premise can still muster a certain amount of impact and importance if certain things come together in the right way. Assuming the basic structure is strong and worth the repeated “remakes” what’s left to close out the equation is a strong […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

In 2015 Sicario came out of nowhere and ended up as one of the best films of the year. Its success was due in large part to its director, Denis Villeneuve and legendary cinematographer, Roger Deakins who elevate every project they come in contact with. When a sequel was announced without these two returning it […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp

In their ongoing effort for world domination, MARVEL continues its reign with their newest release, Ant-Man and the Wasp. At this point if you hate superhero movies you have got to be in some sort of hellscape and I do not envy you or your poor taste in movies. That said Ant-Man 2 is yet […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: TAG

“I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was 12. Jesus, does anyone?” -Stand By Me (Richard Dreyfuss) There’s something fun about watching a bunch of adults acting like children. I suppose it makes us miss our own adolescence as we face down bills and jobs and ugh, actual […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Incredibles 2

Fourteen years ago I was fifteen years young and dreaming of the day when I wouldn’t have to go to high school anymore. As I awaited that merciful day I relied on movies as an escape from the hell that is being a teenager and even worse being around other teenagers. In 2004, during the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Hereditary

The intensity of nightmares is rarely matched in celluloid but Hereditary isn’t like most other horror films. While it does pay homage to the greats before it, Hereditary combines family drama and paranormal, psychological terror into a giant cluster of disturbing storytelling unlike anything else. The track record for great horror films from A24 continues […]Read More

My NERDy Favorites: April 2018

APRIL This is my monthly nerdy obsession update. From movies to music to video games and whatever other related nonsense I’ve gotten myself into. Let’s start with my biggest addiction, MOVIE: In Theaters: AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR April is when the floodgates open and the summer blockbusters begin to drown us all in amazing spectacle or […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Deadpool 2

After leaked test footage was unleashed we were given the first Deadpool. With its stellar success a sequel was inevitable and now here we are, Deadpool 2. Bigger, faster, filthier, Deadpool 2 takes everything that worked for the first and adds to it for a more than worthy sequel. Fourth wall breaks and heaps of […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Avengers: Infinity War

“There was an idea called the Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when we needed them to to fight the battles we never could.” -Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) Ten years, eighteen movies later and […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Super Troopers 2

I believe Anchorman and its less than good sequel is a prime example of the thought being better than the final product. While Super Troopers 2 isn’t a bad film the idea of it was much better than what we’ve been given. When Jackass 2&3 were released, straight to dvd versions were released showing all […]Read More

My NERDy Favorites: March 2018

M A R C H This is my monthly nerdy obsession update. From movies to music to video games and whatever other related nonsense I’ve gotten myself into. Let’s start with my biggest addiction, MOVIE: In Theaters: READY PLAYER ONE The month of March is usually a preview month of the Summer movie season and […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Blockers

It may be predictable, it may be unoriginal, it still manages to be damn funny regardless. The originality bug did not bite but the funny bone has been tapped I assure you. Featuring hilarious performances from the parents and kids alike, Blockers also features a welcomed element of heart, when it’s not dicks and boobs […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: A Quiet Place

Silence can be deafening but in the case of A Quiet Place it’s downright terroristic. From the opening shot the stillness is relentless and rarely does it let up. In the moments of normal interactions with the sounds of everyday life the characters show themselves as not only survivors but family members trying to balance […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Ready Player One

For decades Steven Spielberg has shaped pop culture and now he’s brought to life the shrine for it with Ready Player One. As I think about it there probably isn’t a more perfect person to helm this project being that half the easter eggs are from his movies, his friend Robert Zemeckis’ movies, or his […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Unsane

Steven Soderbergh is at a point in his career where he can try whatever random, batshit crazy idea he can come up with. Not only does he always find support for his projects but they almost always end up being well crafted, uniquely structured, highly entertaining pieces of cinema. Unsane was filmed entirely with an […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Pacific Rim: Uprising

Hey Hasbro, take notes, this is how a giant robot movie should go… mostly. While in no risk of winning any awards outside of a Razzie (it’s not that bad though) Pacific Rim: Uprising is a solid, if forgettable, sequel to a monster movie that did it right only to be followed up with a […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Tomb Raider

The curse continues… For most movies I try to enter the theater with an open mind. Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised, at the very least I’ll leave having seen a decent, okay film. At this point though when it comes to video game based movies, I have zero room for error. Not one film has […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Red Sparrow

“Female spies typically represented one of two extremes: the seductress who employed her wiles to manipulate men, and the cross-dresser who blended in by impersonating them.” – Karen Abbott The Cold War may have ended but the battle still rages on within dark hallways and down desolate alleys and behind closed doors. In many ways […]Read More
