Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Revenant

Leonardo DiCaprio has been in more films worthy of an academy award than probably anyone, but never has he been in something worthy of so many nominations. Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Score, Best Cinematography, Best Director, the list could go on. Thinking about what categories this film should be considered in is almost […]readmore

Movie Review: The Good Dinosaur

Being a big fan of the Pixar canon, I tend to cycle through a series of stages leading up to the release of a new Pixar film. I call them “The Five Steps towards an Emotional Breakdown.” First, I’ll read some rumor, or official synopsis. I will then get wildly excited about how that story […]readmore

Movie Review: Viewer Beware, Goosebumps Won’t Scare

I would have to say that I probably like Jack Black more than most people. I would definitely say I loved the Goosebumps titles more than the average kid, especially the choose-your-own-adventure style reads that R.L. Stine provided to many young readers. With every reason to love it, I couldn’t help but get a certain […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: St. Vincent

Anyone can tell from the short trailer for St. Vincent that you’re in for a recycled plot that we’ve seen at least a handful of times; The Crotchety old man becomes a softee when his heart is opened up by the unconditional love of a young child. Somehow though, that overused storyline is perfectly acceptable […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Book Of Life

It is rare that an animated film can be layered with multiple worlds and keep the attention of both child and adult alike. The Book of Life succeeds at doing just that. It also has some of the most jaw dropping animation I’ve ever seen. I went in expecting a Tim Burton-esque styled story but […]readmore

Guardians Of The Galaxy: Review & Essential Reading

I feel like I’ve been waiting my entire life to see Guardians of the Galaxy. I mean,  I didn’t even care who they were until around 2008. The characters have been swapped in & out since the 70’s but the team they introduce in the 2014 film written and directed by James Gunn are based […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Lucy

Scarlett Johansson plays the title character in the 2014 science fiction thriller ‘Lucy.’ Her character is an American studying abroad in Taiwan who had a week long relationship with the wrong kind of guy; The kind who will cuff a locked briefcase with unknown contents to your arm and send you into the offices of […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: A Million Ways To Die In The

Seth MacFarlane is taking another whack at the movie making business with A Million Ways To Die In The West.

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Transcendence

Don’t you love movies that take you to other worlds; places that are unknown and unexplored to us? If you think for a second that there could be a world we created with technology that is vastly unexplored due to our own intellectual limits, you start to get lost in the possibilities. In Transcendence, I […]readmore

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Marvel seems all over the place with their cinematic universe as far as style of film goes. Joss Whedon’s The Avengers certainly broke records but Iron Man 3 didn’t seem to shoot for the stars and I didn’t appreciate some of the shortcuts taken. Thor: The Dark World was impressive for being big, loud, and […]readmore

Kickstart It: The Rattler

Comic books have almost exclusively become the drawing boards for upcoming films in recent years. I’ve seen comics written with the express intent on becoming a feature and miss the mark completely. I feel some writers are losing focus on what matters the most; the story. When I find a title that grabs me, holds […]readmore

Nerdlocker Movie Review: RoboCop (2014)

“We get the best of both worlds. The fastest reflexes modern technology can buy, on-board computer assisted memory, and a lifetime of on-the-street law enforcement programming. It is my great pleasure to present to you…RoboCop.” – Bob Morton Remakes primarily leave a bad taste in people’s mouths. No one goes into a remake with high […]readmore
