Nerdlocker Movie Review: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

“The Force will be with you. Always.” -Obi-Wan Kenobi “Why, you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder!” I write this quote spoken by Princess/General Leia because more and more these days it seems directed at the so-called fans of Star Wars themselves. You know the ones of which I speak. The ones that can’t possibly fathom […]Read More

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Movie Review

Cue the hate. The negativity. The toxic fandom. And of course the critics. Star Wars is not easy. It garners an amazing fanbase that has grown exponentially every year for the last forty two years.

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Jumanji: The Next Level

Sequels are one of the trickiest puzzles to solve when it comes to movies, more specifically, successful and well-regarded movies. So often the thinking is merely “bigger is better” and to hell with the rest. The rest being genuine character development, logical story progression, basically anything warranting an actual need for further story and world […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Richard Jewell

On July 27, 1996 in Atlanta, Georgia, an improvised explosive device was detonated during the Summer Olympics. While the event itself is of course a tragedy all its own, having taken the life of one innocent bystander and injuring 111 others, it was the events that followed that truly left a stain on the event […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: 1917

TIME IS THE ENEMY As if a soldier ourselves, the film opens its eyes and rarely closes them again until the story’s end. We run along, duck and dive hoping the opposing enemy doesn’t discover our location. We along with two idealistic British privates are tasked with a dire mission in the midst of World […]Read More

I come from a place where hubris […]Read More

“ ‘I heard you paint houses.’ To paint a house is to kill a man.” -Frank Sheeran aka The Irishman Where Goodfellas showcased a life of excess and reckless abandon, The Irishman is an exhibition of regret and the tragedy of getting old watching the world pass you by. It is the reality we all […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Knives Out

“I think everyone enjoys a nice murder… provided he is not the victim.” -Alfred Hitchcock It’s the sign of a strong storyteller when they can take the subject of murder, a topic I think we can all agree is a bit morbid, and somehow make it funny. Rian Johnson is not only capable of creating […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Midway

I want to preface this review by saying the true story from which this film is based is nothing short of amazing and profound. The actions taken to retaliate after the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor are absolutely heroic and at times tragic. Their bravery is inspirational and their memories should be carried on for […]Read More
