Nerdlocker Movie Review: Dark Phoenix

The end of an era isn’t always a bad thing, sometimes it’s a mercy. After some hits and many misses, the 20th Century Fox X-Men era has finally come to an end. Casting wise I believe they nailed most characters, both the McAvoy and Stewart casts. The true gem would have to be Hugh Jackman […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Red Sparrow

“Female spies typically represented one of two extremes: the seductress who employed her wiles to manipulate men, and the cross-dresser who blended in by impersonating them.” – Karen Abbott The Cold War may have ended but the battle still rages on within dark hallways and down desolate alleys and behind closed doors. In many ways […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: mother!

Darren Aronofsky, the modern day mindbender of mindfuckery cinema strikes again with mother!. I sit here writing these words not having a clue what to say about this movie. From the redeye inducing imagery to the ear-piercing sound design that is a character all its own, mother! is a beast unlike any other. As the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: X-Men: Apocalypse

When a single player is making three-pointer after three-pointer it’s generally a rule of thumb to continue to feed the hot hand. Eventually that “hand” will cool and threes will come less frequent. Century Fox revamped their X-Men universe with Matthew Vaughn’s stellar prequel/sequel First Class. Continuing with these younger characters, Days of Future Past […]Read More

2016 Golden Globes Review

It’s no secret that I love awards shows like the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards. “Why?” you might ask (and you probably do as popular opinion states that such shows are shit). I love them for lots of reasons. It’s not because I put a lot of stock into the results (though I do […]Read More

Movie Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 2

Oh the splitting of movies, how I hate you. It is the epitome of Hollywood greed and their unwavering need to suck up every penny you own. Mockingjay Pt. 1 was slow and uneventful. Not even scratching the two hour mark it was all too obvious that the final book in the franchise was split […]Read More

Movie Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

Splitting a single novel into multiple movies; the new trend from movie studios determined to get every penny you can. They don’t care about story or character development. They want to make as much money as possible and will go to some seriously ridiculous lengths to do so. I understand that it’s a business first […]Read More

Film Review: American Hustle

Hustle is the name of the game; it is the extent of the hustle that makes this one to remember. The beauty of this story is that all the while these characters are getting played and conned, so too is the audience. By the time you realize this, the film is over and you are […]Read More

A Salty Winters Film Review: American Hustle

When I saw the trailer for American Hustle, David O. Russell’s slick, new period piece about con artists in the late 1970s, my initial thought was that it looked like a Scorsese movie.  I found it interesting because Russell, director of The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook, is an accomplished director with a unique style […]Read More
