Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Black Phone

“I believe the only way to reform people is to kill them.” – Carl Panzram What is it about serial killers that we find so fascinating? Is it the excitement in living vicariously through someone else as they carry out heinous acts of villainy that we would never dare attempt in our real lives? Or […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Northman

“Revenge is the raging fire that consumes the arsonist.” – Max Lucado We were promised Robert Eggers with a more sizable budget and we’ve been given The Northman. I can tell you this, money well spent. I’ll just get this out of the way now, The Northman is (so far) the best film of 2022. […]Read More

This isn’t to say Richard Linklater has in anyway been held back like this; I’m simply saying that if you […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Boyhood

Richard Linklater’s Boyhood is a cinematic experience like no other. 12 years in the making, it is the culmination of a dozen summers’ worth of collaborations with star Ellar Coltrane. The result is a fascinating examination of childhood, adolescence, and family, and is perhaps the most honest portrayal of growing up in the history of […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Purge

I have thought about this idea for a very long time. What if all crime was legal for a certain period of time? Murder, theft, arson or whatever other sick, demented ideas you can come up with… they’re all legal. It’s such an interesting topic and yet it’s absolutely terrifying to think about. No help, […]Read More
