Nerdlocker Movie Review: Hail, Caesar!

Hail, Coens! The brothers are back with a gloriously silly entry in their canon, one that will please the die-hards and divide the masses. It’s been pegged as Coen Lite–even I jotted that down in my film notes–but after letting it marinate for a day, I’m not so quick to apply the “Lite” label. Hail, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Hateful Eight

Rarely are sequels ever as good as the first, much less better, but it does happen. With many of the main […]Read More

Seriously, this has nearly every 80’s, 90’s action film cliché thrown into one giant cheese filled romp. But for me what worked so well for this is the fact that it embraces the ridiculous nature […]Read More
