Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Northman

“Revenge is the raging fire that consumes the arsonist.” – Max Lucado We were promised Robert Eggers with a more sizable budget and we’ve been given The Northman. I can tell you this, money well spent. I’ll just get this out of the way now, The Northman is (so far) the best film of 2022. […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: AmbuLAnce

“Los Angeles gives one the feeling of the future more strongly than any city I know of. A bad future too, like something out of Fritz Lang’s feeble imagination.” – Henry Miller Ah, Michael Benjamin Bay – my feelings toward you sway and dip like the ocean in a hurricane. Sometimes, basically the entire Transformersera, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Sonic the Hedgehog 2

“A true hero is not measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.” – Hercules I suppose this is where my inexperience shows through most when I’m trying to articulate what I thought about a movie that was in no way intended for me. It would be unfair of […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Everything Everywhere All at Once

“Sometimes it takes a wrong turn to get you to the right place.” – Mandy Hale Swiss Army Man made its idiosyncratic debut in 2016. When the end credits rolled I was convinced I’d likely never see something so bizarre or unique ever again. I thought if anyone could ever top just how distinctive that […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Morbius

“Mistakes are the portals of discovery.” – James Joyce I’m cautiously optimistic that DC may be learning from past mistakes and might actually be pivoting in a positive direction. Sony and its MARVEL properties on the other hand? It would seem they are very much still lost in the dark that is their own blindness. […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Lost City

“Sometimes you find your destiny on the road you took to avoid it.” – Clive Owen Like with any genre there are the cliché entries. Uncharted inspired by Indiana Jones, Fool’s Gold and Sahara haphazardly pieced together from a hundred different adventure movies. The Mummy, Jungle Cruise, Romancing the Stone, I could go on. And […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Deep Water

“One lie is enough to question all truths.” – Anonymous Ah yes, the erotic thriller. For those of us that get turned on when sex and murder is smushed together like naughty bits in a, well, an erotic thriller. I try not to judge but if the idea of Ben Affleck drowning someone in his […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: THE BATMAN

“I’m vengeance.” – Batman When they moved John Wick 4 to 2023 The Batman officially became my most anticipated of 2022. I couldn’t wait to see what Matt Reeves could do with the character and the city of Gotham and its inhabitants. I was so excited to see a new but long awaited perspective of […]Read More

Cinema de Bergerac: Cyrano on the Big Screen

When you think of the great noses in movie history, few stand out like Cyrano de Bergerac’s. The rhyme-reciting, sword-fighting, Roxanne-loving, wiener-faced hero from Edmond Rostand’s enduring play has been synonymous with noses for almost as long as Pinocchio, dating all the way back to the late 19th century (1897). Both stories have withstood the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Texas Chainsaw Massacre

“He don’t mean you no harm. Such a sweet boy…” Another one of these? Really? Okay I guess… The original works because it is exactly that, the first, the original. The 2003 remake was decent enough because it managed to capture at least some of the dread the original created. Since then every attempt at […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Uncharted

“Sic Parvis Magna” – Francis Drake Ah yes, the much maligned video game movie adaptation. The video game curse, arguably the as of yet broken tradition of releasing the worst possible excuse for a movie based on a beloved video game franchise. You can say that movies based on games came out long before this […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Death on the Nile

“The truth, however ugly in itself, is always curious and beautiful to seekers after it.” – Agatha Christie I think audiences can be smart when they want to be. If you present your film as a mystery, with clues laid along the way, many see it as a challenge to figure out the truth before […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Moonfall

“Computers will overtake humans with A.I. within the next 100 years. When that happens we need to make sure the computers have goals aligned with ours.” – Stephen Hawking I don’t think anyone would disagree if I said the disaster genre is Roland Emmerich’s to do with as he sees fit. The Day After Tomorrow, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: jackass forever

“Hi, I’m Johnny Knoxville, welcome to jackass!” – Johnny Knoxville How do you review a jackass movie? Over 22 years ago this ridiculous premise premiered on MTV and pop culture was never the same again. It’s been two decades of stupidity. At this point you know what kind of content you’re getting with this franchise, […]Read More
