Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Jungle Book

I’ll start things off by saying this. I’m not a hardcore fan of the original 1967 Disney animated classic The Jungle Book. It’s not a bad film by any means, but it never really captured my fancy outside of the animation and songs. With Disney’s newest live-action adaptation of their animated films, they handed the reigns […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Zootopia

Humans! Do not underestimate Zootopia, the newest animated feature from Disney. It’s the real deal; fun, beautifully animated, and surprisingly complex, with messages and themes that are both timely and timeless. To be honest, I didn’t think much going in (it looked a bit too Madagascar), but I left the theater with a big ass […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Finest Hours

Disney’s new action-thriller, The Finest Hours, is based on “the remarkable true story of the most daring rescue mission in Coast Guard history.” It’s a forgettable, formulaic, bore of a boat movie that wastes it’s talented cast and doesn’t do the incredible true story it’s based on justice. There’s nothing memorable about The Finest Hours. […]Read More

Nerdlocker Review: Star Wars: Episode VII- The Force Awakens

It’s finally here! Star Wars: Episode VII- The Force Awakens, the most-anticipated movie of the century, hits screens today!! The force truly awakened on October 30th, 2012 when Disney announced that they purchased Lucasfilm Ltd. from George Lucas for $4.05 billion and planned on making Episodes VII-IX (that’s 7-9 for you non-Romans). This was music […]Read More

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 […]Read More

Weekend Rundown: Tomorrowland and Good Kill

Hello, nerds, nerdlings, and nerds in denial. Once again the weekend is upon us and I have the lowdown on a couple of films that might be worth a look if you aren’t busy watching Mad Max: Fury Road for the third time (or Pitch Perfect 2 judging by the box office). As a huge […]Read More

A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes (When You’re

Recently, the juggernaut that is Disney started what I can only assume is going to be a whirlwind of live action movies. Cinderella was made for people like me. Late twenties, female, grew up watching the animated classics, pretending that their broom was Prince Charming and the ball was that evening (for practice of course…) […]Read More

Movies You May Have Missed: The Great Raid (2005)

In August of 2005 The Great Raid was released in theaters. It is a war film detailing a harrowing rescue mission of over 500 military POWs. If anything can be said about the movie it is its attention to detail. In fact, the conception and planning are the main focus of the film. However it does […]Read More

Movie Review – Brave

Alright, I’ve got to lay all cards on the table. I am a Disney fanatic. I can pretty much recite every classic animated Disney movie by heart, even The Black Cauldron. I am also a Pixar fanatic. I watch at least one of the Pixar films once a week. I laugh, I cry, I sing […]Read More
