Nerdlocker Artist Interview: Aaron Draplin

Last year I was fortunate enough to attend MondoCon in Austin, Texas. No lie it was one of the best convention experience I have ever had. A large part of that was due to the talented artists who attended. I discovered several artists I had not heard of before. Case in point, Aaron Draplin. Unfortunately, […]Read More

Fantastic Fest 2017 First Wave Of Programming Announced!

  There’s no finer time of the year and no film festival that remotely compares with the 8 days of unbridled genre lunacy and (often alcohol fueled) fun that is Fantastic Fest.

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Big Sick

Kumail Nanjiani is a likable fella. He’s down-to-earth, quick-witted, and quite funny. I had the pleasure of watching him introduce the boisterous 1993 Indian film, Khal Nayak, at Fantastic Fest last year and his intro was easily the best of the fest (out of 30+ intros). His brand of humor is genuine and accessible, filled […]Read More

Nerdlocker Family Movie Review: Rock Dog

When I began the adventure of writing for Nerdlocker, I hadn’t considered the luck of including my family. We’ve enjoyed other events, though at the time, Littles wasn’t quite the attentive movie watcher we’d hoped for. Recently he notched, E.T., on his belt, so we hoped that the event and film, Rock Dog would prove […]Read More
