Nerdlocker Movie Review: AmbuLAnce

“Los Angeles gives one the feeling of the future more strongly than any city I know of. A bad future too, like something out of Fritz Lang’s feeble imagination.” – Henry Miller Ah, Michael Benjamin Bay – my feelings toward you sway and dip like the ocean in a hurricane. Sometimes, basically the entire Transformersera, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Spider-Man: Far from Home

One of my favorite aspects of Homecoming was the further explored relationship of Peter Parker and Tony Stark. It set the stage for a more believable finale in Infinity War and ultimately Endgame. You believed their embraces, their tears, and their shared successes all because it’s a relationship that’s been shaped since Civil War. You […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Velvet Buzzsaw

Dan Gilroy, director of the acclaimed, Oscar nominated thriller, Nightcrawler, returns with his latest trek into literal madness with art horror, aptly named Velvet Buzzsaw. Apt for the simple fact that one thing can be more than what meets the eye. If given a chance, people can show different sides to themselves; something as lush […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: LIFE

Isolation in space is not a new concept, but it’s one that has always intrigued me. No help, no matter the circumstances. That is just tempting fate and what a thrill it can be if done right. Life is by no means original in ideas but regardless it is a thrilling, bloody, damn good time. […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Southpaw

While not exactly a knockout, SOUTHPAW packs more than a punch, boosted by some exceptional performances. Translating emotional stories within the context of sports is often, much like the games themselves, very hit or miss. With boxing being an extremely solitary sport, the genre in particular lends itself to more character-centric storytelling, which can also […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Southpaw

“Boxing is the only sport you can get your brain shook, your money took and your name in the undertaker book.” – Joe Frazier You can choose to view a movie like this as nothing more than cliche and you wouldn’t be wrong; short-sighted maybe but not exactly wrong. I see Southpaw as a prime […]Read More

Movie Review: Nightcrawler

Ever since Jake Gyllenhaal starred in the criminally underrated film Source Code, he has been choosing truly dynamic and complicated characters that push the boundaries of those movies as well as himself as an actor. If he stays on point like he is he will undoubtedly hear his name called at the Oscars. With Nightcrawler […]Read More

Movie Review: ENEMY

My anticipation for this film was beginning to annoy me; it seemed to be released everywhere with the exception of where I live. 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
