Nerdlocker Movie Review: Avengers: Endgame

This review is 100% Spoiler Free. “You know my motto is “Excelsior.’ That’s an old word that means ‘upward and onward to greater glory.’ Keep moving forward, and if it’s time to go, it’s time. Nothing lasts forever.” – Stan Lee I can hardly believe I’m writing this, after eleven years in the making here […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: TAG

“I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was 12. Jesus, does anyone?” -Stand By Me (Richard Dreyfuss) There’s something fun about watching a bunch of adults acting like children. I suppose it makes us miss our own adolescence as we face down bills and jobs and ugh, actual […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Wind River

The loss of hope can be a powerful motivator. In Wind River the characters face this hopelessness in the form of two paths; a path of righteousness in an attempt to fill a void or a much darker path that leads to nothing but more heartache. In random moments these paths clash and violence erupts […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Arrival

Every year there is one movie that I can point to and say that is the one that started the fall movie season, my favorite time for movies. Mercifully the mindlessness of summer films, however fun at times, dissipates into a cluster of films where character, story, cinematography, set design, and generally speaking, intelligent thought […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review – Captain America: Civil War

“With a solid plot, incredible performances from their entire roster (including a few new faces), and some of the best action ever filmed, Marvel Studios has unleashed arguably their best film to date.” There’s a large consensus among superhero film lovers that you cannot be a fan of both Marvel and DC films.  It’s frustratingly […]Read More

Captain America: Civil War – A Nerdlocker Review

“Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved.” The year of superhuman vs. superhuman got off to a bit of a rocky start with the Bat and Sups but luckily MARVEL is here to save the day. Captain America’s third film is the most ambitious entry yet and without question the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review – Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation

Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the original Tom Cruise lead Mission: Impossible. I heard Cruise say that recently on a talk show and it was shocking to put into perspective just how long this franchise has been around (Yes I’m aware of the series from 1966). Twenty years of espionage fueled explosions, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review – Avengers: Age of Ultron

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. This is the kind of movie that everyone has already decided if they can’t wait to see it or they can’t wait until they stop hearing about it. I know my little review of this already highly successful sequel isn’t really going to change any minds. I […]Read More

Movie Review: Kill the Messenger

You would think that maybe the amount of government corruption scandals would end, or at least waver a bit, as time goes on. Not for the wonderful U.S. Government! It seems, at least with this story, that there is no extreme they won’t go to keep their dirty little secrets hidden from public view. And […]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
