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

Nerdlocker Movie Review: SCREAM

“Movies don’t create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative!” – Billy Loomis All the way back in 1996, Wes Craven came up with an idea that would not only change pop culture of that era but for all time. Scream, while at its surface is just another slasher, it’s the self awareness the franchise possesses […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The 355

“All warfare is based on deception. There is no place where espionage is not used. Offer the enemy bait to lure him.” – Sun Tzu I hope that when the reviews and opinions of moviegoers start coming in for this thing that everyone can maintain their composure and realize that maybe, just maybe, the inevitable […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The King’s Man

“Manners maketh man.” – Harry Hart In the land of reboots and redos we covet the rare original property that sticks its head out maybe once a year if we’re lucky. Say what you will about the overall outcome of his films, Matthew Vaughn is one that strives to bring those rare properties to life. […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: American Underdog

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” – Theodore Roosevelt I remember the ‘99 season of the NFL better than most seasons for a few reasons. My initial reason for watching is that just two years prior I became a lifelong, for better or worse, Denver Broncos fan. In the ‘97 and ‘98 seasons Denver […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Licorice Pizza

“The beautiful thing about young love is the truth in our hearts that it will last forever.” – Atticus I try to approach every new movie I see with as much unbiased opinion as I can. There are exceptions of course with certain creators. With certain filmmakers there automatically comes certain expectations, as is often […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Nightmare Alley

“Innocence once lost, can never be regained. Darkness, once gazed upon, can never be lost.” – John Milton I’m going to say something here I might get a lot of flak for but it’s something I’ve felt for a long time. Guillermo del Toro is what Tim Burton wishes he was. Macabre storytelling, off-kilter characters […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Don’t Look Up

“Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.” – Mark Twain In 2015 Adam McKay wrote and directed The Big Short, a semi-serious but unwaveringly honest look at the 2000’s market crash from the perspective of those who didn’t yet fully comprehend the depths of corruption that plagued the housing market. […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Being the Ricardos

“The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.” – Lucille Ball I’m starting to think I might be late to the Aaron Sorkin appreciation party. While I’ve been a fan for a long time I’ve still possessed doubt from time to time with each of his new […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: House of Gucci

“Power-lust is a weed that grows only in the vacant lots of an abandoned mind.” – Ayn Rand Turning 84 years-old at the end of November 2021, Ridley Scott is churning out movies at a rate more than most filmmakers half his age. Just last month The Last Duel was released and criminally underseen. People […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Last Night in Soho

“Only by facing your demons can you stop them from having power over you.” – Auliq Ice I’ve mentioned this before with other directors but Edgar Wright is certainly in a group of particular filmmakers that elicit a kind of curiosity simply by being involved in whatever project they decide to attach themselves to. That […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: ETERNALS

“We all want to break our orbits, float like a satellite gone wild in space, run the risk of disintegration. We all want to take our lives in our own hands and hurl them out among the stars.” – David Bottoms As more and more new heroes and villains are introduced into the MCU it’s […]Read More
