Nerdlocker Movie Review: SCREAM

“Movies don’t create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative!” – Billy Loomis All the way back in 1996, Wes Craven came up with an idea that would not only change pop culture of that era but for all time. Scream, while at its surface is just another slasher, it’s the self awareness the franchise possesses […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The 355

“All warfare is based on deception. There is no place where espionage is not used. Offer the enemy bait to lure him.” – Sun Tzu I hope that when the reviews and opinions of moviegoers start coming in for this thing that everyone can maintain their composure and realize that maybe, just maybe, the inevitable […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The King’s Man

“Manners maketh man.” – Harry Hart In the land of reboots and redos we covet the rare original property that sticks its head out maybe once a year if we’re lucky. Say what you will about the overall outcome of his films, Matthew Vaughn is one that strives to bring those rare properties to life. […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: American Underdog

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” – Theodore Roosevelt I remember the ‘99 season of the NFL better than most seasons for a few reasons. My initial reason for watching is that just two years prior I became a lifelong, for better or worse, Denver Broncos fan. In the ‘97 and ‘98 seasons Denver […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Licorice Pizza

“The beautiful thing about young love is the truth in our hearts that it will last forever.” – Atticus I try to approach every new movie I see with as much unbiased opinion as I can. There are exceptions of course with certain creators. With certain filmmakers there automatically comes certain expectations, as is often […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Nightmare Alley

“Innocence once lost, can never be regained. Darkness, once gazed upon, can never be lost.” – John Milton I’m going to say something here I might get a lot of flak for but it’s something I’ve felt for a long time. Guillermo del Toro is what Tim Burton wishes he was. Macabre storytelling, off-kilter characters […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Don’t Look Up

“Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.” – Mark Twain In 2015 Adam McKay wrote and directed The Big Short, a semi-serious but unwaveringly honest look at the 2000’s market crash from the perspective of those who didn’t yet fully comprehend the depths of corruption that plagued the housing market. […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Being the Ricardos

“The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.” – Lucille Ball I’m starting to think I might be late to the Aaron Sorkin appreciation party. While I’ve been a fan for a long time I’ve still possessed doubt from time to time with each of his new […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: House of Gucci

“Power-lust is a weed that grows only in the vacant lots of an abandoned mind.” – Ayn Rand Turning 84 years-old at the end of November 2021, Ridley Scott is churning out movies at a rate more than most filmmakers half his age. Just last month The Last Duel was released and criminally underseen. People […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Last Night in Soho

“Only by facing your demons can you stop them from having power over you.” – Auliq Ice I’ve mentioned this before with other directors but Edgar Wright is certainly in a group of particular filmmakers that elicit a kind of curiosity simply by being involved in whatever project they decide to attach themselves to. That […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: ETERNALS

“We all want to break our orbits, float like a satellite gone wild in space, run the risk of disintegration. We all want to take our lives in our own hands and hurl them out among the stars.” – David Bottoms As more and more new heroes and villains are introduced into the MCU it’s […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: ANTLERS

“What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.” – Pearl S. Buck If you looked up Scott Cooper on IMDb you would see a filmography of dramatic films. No horror to speak of. But if you’ve seen his films you’ll know that […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: D U N E

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Halloween Kills

“The darkest souls are not those which choose to exist within the hell of the abyss, but those which choose to break free from the abyss and move silently among us.” – Dr. Samuel Loomis If the boogeyman is supposed to create fear and shape legend then in my opinion this version of him isn’t […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Last Duel

“When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.” – Sacha Guitry Ridley Scott is a bit of a conundrum to me lately. This is Ridley Scott we’re talking about and yet his films as of late haven’t exactly lived up to his lofty reputation. With the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Many Saints of Newark

“You know my feelings: Everyday is a gift. It’s just, does it have to be a pair of socks?” – Tony Soprano You know a show has permanently settled into pop culture when you tell someone who’s a fan of it that you haven’t seen it and they have a conniption fit. I’m guilty of […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: No Time To Die

“Some things can’t be ignored. You can only conquer your past if you choose to face it.” – Linda Wisdom The last year and a half has been a serious test for all of us. From the life altering changes like loved ones lost to COVID to a temporary loss as we’ve been forced to […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Vacation Friends

“The best relationships are the ones you didn’t expect to be in, the ones you never even saw coming.” – unknown This is the kind of movie that hurts to see simply because of the potential squandered for something so unsatisfying. I’ve heard it said and I don’t think it takes an experienced filmmaker to […]Read More
