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

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Triple Frontier

In the hands of a director other than J.C. Chandor this could have been yet another mindless shoot ‘em up with disposable characters played by a lesser talented cast in hopes of making a quick buck. If the script had been snatched up by someone other than Mark Boal the same might apply. The final […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Life Itself

‘From the creator of This Is Us’ If this is what This Is Us is like, you sobbing wet blankets can keep Life Itself and the television show. By all accounts this should have worked. It has a lovely message, a stellar ensemble cast to convey that message and a supposedly strong creator behind the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Annihilation

“Science fiction writers foresee the inevitable, and although problems and catastrophes may be inevitable, solutions are not.” -Isaac Asimov Wow… where do I begin? From the brilliant mind of Alex Garland, writer and director of the sci-fi masterpiece Ex Machina comes the truly profound, undeniably groundbreaking Annihilation. Based on the book from author Jeff VanderMeer, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Every now and then fate or karma or whatever you believe actually comes through in a positive way. In the case of The Last Jedi, it was given the guidance and direction of Rian Johnson, whose previous credits are criminally underrated. Well, it seems now he is getting his greatly deserved time to shine as […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: X-Men: Apocalypse

When a single player is making three-pointer after three-pointer it’s generally a rule of thumb to continue to feed the hot hand. Eventually that “hand” will cool and threes will come less frequent. Century Fox revamped their X-Men universe with Matthew Vaughn’s stellar prequel/sequel First Class. Continuing with these younger characters, Days of Future Past […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Ex Machina

Ex Machina is an instant classic. It’s an intelligent, intriguing piece of science fiction that marks the directorial debut of Alex Garland, novelest (The Beach, The Tesseract) and screenwriter (28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go, Dredd). With a miniscule budget of $16 million, Ex Machina goes a long way on story and ideas […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: A Most Violent Year

Writer/director J.C. Chandor (All Is Lost, Margin Call) is quietly building a resume of mature, thought-provoking films and A Most Violent Year is arguably his best picture yet. It feels like the work of a seasoned vet -like the capstone at the end of an already accomplished career- but this is only Chandor’s third feature. […]Read More

Film Review: Inside Llewyn Davis

Although often melancholy and slow, Inside Llewyn Davis is a wonderful representation of the Coen Brothers still at their best. It has elements of humor and sadness blended in a way that only they could do. It’s an oddly structured film at times, but in order to fully enjoy it you have to trust the […]Read More
