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: Blade Runner 2049

It’s films like Blade Runner 2049 that make the unceasing waves of sequel-scum worth the constant eye rolls and negative reviews in hopes of finding something as mesmerizing as this modern masterpiece of science fiction. 2049 is a slow-paced, methodical, sci-fi noir thriller with sudden bursts of shocking violence.

Often the main character acts as the driver and we as the audience are riding “shotgun”. The protagonist is taken from […]Read More

Anyway, I finally had the opportunity to see Enemy and my mind is absolutely blown! As the trailer plays it makes mention that Denis Villeneuve, the director of the phenomenal Prisoners, also […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Prisoners

Police procedurals have been done and done again. While this film doesn’t break a whole lot of new ground, it really shines in the performances of its phenomenal cast. They are given a script with familiar elements and they mold them in a way that makes the film feel fresh and yet still very dark […]Read More
