Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Forever Purge

“Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.” – Thomas Edison The Purge movies can be a bit rudimentary at times with mindless, excessive violence and one dimensional characters. However basic they may be there is no denying […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Black Widow

“Some things can’t be ignored. You can only conquer your past if you choose to face it.” – Linda Wisdom I’m not sure why it took until phase 4 for the Black Widow character to get her own movie but I can say it was worth the wait. What little I know about the MARVEL […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: F9

“I live my life a quarter mile at a time… For those ten seconds or less, I’m free.” – Dominic Toretto What can I say about this franchise at this point that hasn’t already been said ad nauseam? It’s ridiculous and over-the-top? You already know that. It should have ended five movies ago? Again, you […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Cruella

“Madness is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.” -The Joker Heralded as the Joker of the Disney world, Cruella is an origin story intent on humanizing an otherwise wholly despised villain. Embodying the black and white villainess and to a brilliant extent is Emma Stone. While it follows certain typical Disney tropes, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: A Quiet Place Part II

“It’s in my nature to be kind, gentle, and loving, but know this: When it comes to matters of protecting my friend, my family, and my heart, do not trifle with me. For I am also the most powerful and relentless creature you will ever know.” – Unknown It’s rare that such an impact is […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Spiral: From the Book of Saw

“I want to play a game.” – Jigsaw If anyone from Lionsgate ever sees this: PLEASE STOP MAKING SAW MOVIES! Thank you. Sincerely, anyone with a sliver of self-respect and taste. I could make the argument that everything before this point had some validity to its existence. From the original Saw to the much maligned […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Wrath of Man

“Vengeance is a monster of appetite, forever bloodthirsty and never filled.” – Richelle E. Goodrich While not expecting much from Wrath of Man, I certainly expected better than what I was left with. Sometimes I think a person can get a bit too comfortable with their own fecal fumes, often confusing it for a pleasant […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse

“Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand, Blood and revenge are hammering in my head.” -William Shakespeare Sometimes originality can be replaced by execution. By that I mean however unoriginal a story or its theme may be it can still be a damn good film if the final outcome is done well enough […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Coming 2 America

“So you see, my son, there is a very fine line between love and nausea.” – King Jaffe Joffer I’m sure at some point I’ve been guilty of it myself, operating under this idea that if a sequel to a beloved film is made and falls well short of living up to its predecessor that […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Judas and the Black Messiah

“You can kill a revolutionary but you can never kill the revolution.” – Fred Hampton It’s topics like this, the assassination of American activist, Fred Hampton, that make you truly realize that at the end of the day you really don’t know much beyond your own window. I think we can all admit that, at […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Little Things

“Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.” – Stephen King I’m not sure what it says about our society that we find the subject of crime, in particular murder, so fascinating. I suppose it’s because for most of us the thought of taking someone’s life is […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Our Friend

“You were unsure which pain is worse – the shock of what happened or the ache for what never will.” – Simon Van Booy I want to preface this review by saying I may unintentionally get overly sentimental about the subject matter that this particular film addresses. Much in the same way Marley & Me […]Read More

Nerdlocker Series Review: WandaVision – Episodes 1-3

“A thing isn’t beautiful because it lasts.” – Vision After what has felt like one giant delay, a delay of life itself in a lot of ways, MARVEL is finally beginning to unveil its long awaited Phase 4. First up we have what I can only describe as the weirdest entry yet in the MARVEL-verse, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Pixar’s SOUL

“Life is amazing. And then it’s awful. And it’s amazing again. And in between the amazing and the awful it’s ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That’s just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And it’s breathtakingly beautiful.” – […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Promising Young Woman

“She was powerful, not because she wasn’t scared but because she went on so strongly, despite the fear.” – Atticus In a year as dismal as this, if no other silver lining exists when it comes to entertainment, it’s the extra room left for the smaller films to be noticed more than they might have […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Sound of Metal

“The deaf believe there is nothing wrong. The hearing believe something needs to be fixed.” – Anonymous While I am not deaf, maybe tone deaf at times, I still empathize with the main character of this film. He is a drummer of a heavy metal band. I have been a metalhead for nearly twenty years. […]Read More
