Nerdlocker Movie Review: SWISS ARMY MAN

It’s often bizarre to me that we live in a day and age where so much of the cinema we consume deals in the fantastical yet so much of it rarely evokes the feelings that should go along with that. In various films we see superior beings fly and zoom around effortlessly and cities and […]Read More

We are more than happy to promote the words of Alamo Drafthouse Founder/CEO Tim League when it comes to the absolutely terrible idea of texting in a theater. Alamo Drafthouse Founder/CEO Tim League believes theaters without […]Read More

Diary of a Film Freak: January ’16

Hello, Dave. I watched 100 movies in January. Didn’t set out to, just did. After a couple of busy months packed with awards season screeners and screenings, it was nice to chill out and watch some movies of my choosing. A lot of the films I watched are comfort movies; old favorites I’ve revisited countless […]Read More

Fantastic Fest 2015 Recap: Day 1

Hello friendos! Fantastic Fest and MondoCon ended a few weeks ago and I’ve finally recovered. Like last year, I packed in as many screenings, parties, and events as possible and my plan is to cover them all. The movie lineup was a scorcher. Every slot was like Sophie’s Choice with an array of enticing options. […]Read More

Fantastic Fest 2014 has come to a halt (two weeks ago), and man was it a blast! It was the 10th year of the festival and the first year I was able to attend. I’ll be back. The same love of cinema and attention to detail that the Alamo Drafthouse applies to their regular programming […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Mood Indigo

Like a modern day Georges Méliès, director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep) fills Mood Indigo with luscious practical effects that give the film a wonderful handmade quality. There’s a crawling doorbell critter, stop-motion food, rotating handshakes, and dozens of other visual gags and metaphors. The mood of the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Premature

Premature debuted at SXSW in March and was immediately dubbed as Groundhog Day meets American Pie. It borrows the repeating day structure of the former and the crude humor and high school setting of the latter. Director Dan Beers cites John Hughes as an influence and the movie does have an ’80s vibe, but it’s more […]Read More

Mondo Gallery: Mobile Loaves & Fishes Art Gallery

MONDO GALLERY OPENS ITS DOORS TO MOBILE LOAVES & FISHES I’ve been a patron of the Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo for years. Traditionally they have catered to a relatively affluent crowd, patrons willing to spend their disposable income on movies and movie related art. As much as I have enjoyed what they’ve done in the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Borgman

Borgman, a psychological thriller written and directed by Alex van Warmerdam, was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and was selected as the Dutch Entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards. (It did not receive the nomination.) Drafthouse Films picked it up and it’s now in […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Blue Ruin

Critics have been raving about Blue Ruin and for good reason; director Jeremy Saulnier (Murder Party) takes a simple tale of revenge and elevates it to Shakespearean heights with his masterful storytelling.  Macon Blair has a career-making performance as Dwight, an outcast living on the fringe of society who’s drawn back to his hometown at […]Read More
