Nerdlocker Movie Review: Serenity

“Things are not always what they seem; the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden.” -Phaedrus After reading numerous reviews I knew I had to see Serenity for myself; good or bad, great or awful I had to experience what the critics were losing their minds over.

Nerdlocker Movie Review: White Boy Rick

I think with any movie no matter how hard I try to refrain from judgement before actually seeing a film I enter the theater with a bit of a preconceived notion of what it is I’m about to see. I thought I had a grasp on what I was about to experience with White Boy […]Read More

Movie Review: Interstellar

From the mind of Christopher Nolan comes yet another astoundingly beautiful and ingenious adventure into the farthest reaches of both space and time. With Inception he brought us inward and yet we traveled so far, even though we never really went anywhere. With Interstellar Nolan takes us in the opposite direction, to the most vast […]Read More

TV REVIEW – True Detective: Anthology Series Season One

Formatted in tone and pace similar to AMC’s The Killing, True Detective is measured and methodical. The writing is clever and nearly every line is priceless. The characters are unique and vivid and, although the basic idea is unoriginal, the final product is new and fresh. Everything about this show is dark and foreboding. Even […]Read More

Film Review: The Wolf of Wall Street

We were discussing directors who, when involved in a project, you know immediately the movie they are directing is going to be something more than just another movie. There are great directors who make phenomenal films and then there […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Dallas Buyers Club

Have you ever seen Fool’s Gold? Do you remember Matthew McConaughey starring in said movie? Or perhaps you unfortunately recall that abomination that is Failure to Launch. If there is one thing that can be said about these “movies” is that the threshold for good, or even kind-of-sort-of-decent-in-the-right-light, was not exactly present during the making, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: MUD

I am trying something new here. I will write two reviews for the same film; the first will be spoiler free and the second won’t necessarily be filled with spoilers but there may be certain details you may not want to hear. First Review- Spoiler Free Mud tells of a man named, well… Mud. One […]Read More

Nerdlocker – SXSW Day 3

Day Three of SXSW Film was mostly amazing with a slight disappointment in the middle. It started with the new Matthew McConaughey film, Mud, written and directed by Jeff Nichols. Nichols’ previous film, Take Shelter (starring Machael Shannon and Jessica Chastain) was an unexpected pleasure at last year’s Fantastic Fest. A slow psychological family drama […]Read More
