Alien: Covenant Movie Review

Back in March on the opening night of SXSW, Ridley Scott brought along the primary cast as well as around 30 minutes of footage from Alien: Covenant. During that presentation, which I wrote about HERE if you’d like to read that, Ridley made it clear that the character of David, portrayed stunningly by Michael Fassbender, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: ALIEN: Covenant

In 1979 a horror classic was born and since its inception nearly every modern sci-fi or horror film has been influenced by ALIEN. After the stellar sequel ALIENS continued the mind blowing that ALIEN started, it’s been nothing less than disappointing in the world of ALIEN. Alien 3 was meddled with so much by the […]Read More

Movie Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings

My initial reaction once the credits began to roll was; it was too long and yet it felt rushed and most certainly predictable. It seems the glory days of Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven are in Ridley Scott’s rear view mirror, which must have fallen off and broken because he can’t seem to remember what […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Counselor

A little fish in a big pond; this film is one of the most extreme visions of that very simple and innocent saying. This is the perfect definition of being out of one’s element. As a guy I know all too well that you can’t simply jump into the cold water, you have to go […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The East

These days criminals come in all shapes and sizes. The worst part is they are almost always unidentifiable; unless you know where and how to look. If you have the connections and know how you can find anyone anywhere. Some criminals steal a wallet or break into a home; others take advantage of billions of […]Read More

Movie Review – Prometheus

I know what I’m supposed to say. But I just can’t do it. I did not like Prometheus. Admittedly I did not believe director Ridley Scott’s admission that this movie was not an Alien prequel. I popped on my 3D glasses over my normal everyday eye-wear (god I hate 3D) with the idea that I […]Read More

Movie Review – Prometheus

Film is an art form like no other. It is one of the few mediums, if not the only, that utilizes the talents of many to create one solid work. The end result of such massive collaboration can elicit a range of emotions, various criticisms, and very different personal experiences. It is a great thing […]Read More

Austin Connection Movie Review – Prometheus

Well the time has come for the much anticipated film from Ridley Scott, Prometheus.  The question I keep asking myself is, “Is it a worthy addition to my beloved Alien canon?” The answer is a cautious yes.  I really liked this film, but I didn’t love it. I also respect its ambition. Prometheus puts forth […]Read More

Austin Connection Movie Review – Prometheus

This was a haunted-house-with-a-gorilla picture set in outer space. It reached out, grabbed you, and squeezed your stomach; it was more gripping than entertaining, but a lot of people didn’t mind. They thought it was terrific, because at least they had felt something: they’d been brutalized….. Yet there was a backlash against Alien – many […]Read More
